THIS IS URGENT - THE VOTE IS SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY 10th NOVEMBER 2014
On Monday afternoon 10th November, the House of Commons will debate the hand-over of 35 Law and Justice powers to the EU – without a referendum.
These include the infamous European Arrest Warrant, used recently to handcuff and imprison the parents of Ashya King.
These powers – part of the 135 powers that the UK can opt out of this year under the Lisbon Treaty – are being handed back to the EU voluntarily, without a referendum.
a.. They end the tradition of Habeas Corpus which has protected British citizens from arbitrary arrest for 900 years. This is the basis of our Human Rights.
b.. They open the door for UK citizens to come under the power of the new European Public Prosecutor, even though the government has supposedly opted out of this.
c.. They constitute a clear hand-over of powers to the EU without a referendum. Given the opportunity to ‘repatriate’ powers, the government is doing the opposite – and again breaking its pledge to ask the people.
E-mail your MPs now everywhere in the UK demand that they vote against this betrayal
There is no possible justification for this abnegation of our rights and they have never got
any mandate for it from the British people.
