Open-Sourced Private Members Bill: The Results

Over 5,000 of you took part in Douglas Carswell’s open-sourced Private Members Bill poll, and the results are in:

There was a clear winner:

4. Repeal of the European Communities Bill: Britain joined the European Economic Community in 1973. It has turned out to be an economic and political disaster. This Bill will get us out.

Carswell will now write up the Bill and present it to the House. Go on Dave, you know you want to…

    dave’s wannabe pension depends on it
    milliband hasn’t got the bottle

    which is stupid as any one of them backing it would probably walk the election in 2015 – or the day after it becoming law

    Disaster and complete waste of time.

    The Repeal Bill contained most of the head bangers grievances and is actually possible. DC and DH have already worked out a lot of the detail in The Plan.

    But this…

    will be ignored and shot down.

    The Repeal Bill could’ve been passed more or less intact and would’ve been far greater in changing the course of history in how this country is run.

    It was noticeable that the more intelligent posters here and at CH wanted the Repeal Bill and only the fruitcakes from Ukkippers-r-us.

    What a waste of an opportunity.

    Only fruitcases, nutters, traitors and EU lovers (who by definition want to destroy the nation state of the UK) would be against the Repeal of the European Communities Bill.

    This Bill will never see the light of day but it’s a useful tool to keep the pressure on all three leaders but especially Cameron to hold that In/Out Referendum this year…..with the Eurozone imploding before our eyes whilst Germany refuses to act or proposes a closer political federation makes a referendum almost inevitable…probably even this year as matters are progressing very quickly….only Germany can save the euro now but the political will is not there…..Merckel dare not face down her elecorate who simply will not agree to be the paymaster for the Eurozone countries such as Greece who the majority of Germans regard as total wastrels and shirkers

    Mr Draghi is no doubt a very able and intelligent head of ECB , he says his inflation forcasts have been good and he wasnt shy of presenting growth (noting it is an aggregate , and perhaps a country by country breakdown would pose the more interesting questions) . As perhaps he was at pains to point he is not a political policy maker , he cannot legislate finance , which is perhaps the accepted the role of most sovereign or area banking heads . Quite a few expected a rate cut , but it must be fairly obvious that the 1% rate isnt producing growth , so how would 0.5 % make that bigger difference ?
    No quid pro quo for Ireland , as that would mean quid pro quo for everyone else .
    There was this sort of , determining the signals aspects , but then I was none the wiser on what signals invoke certain actions , nothing on spanish bank scenario . The bit on post presentations questions that I thought was interesting was when the normally cool and confident tones of Mr Draghi got fractured on soros 3 months left question , he didnt really bat it away in other language than , the underestimation of political resolve … mmmm well political resolve is all well and good , even if its resolve to do nothing until it just tears itself apart .
    But now it swings to Eurozone political leaders , yet again supposedly at the end of the month , which means more trouble for liquidty in peripherals .

    There are no minutes , no record of votes for ECB meetings again talk of making an EU presidence , fiscal union legislation is the politics just ambling along , hoping for what exactly ?? The truth remains in sorting out the economic differentials not wether you have a president , you have to make 1 ton of olives worth the same as 1 ton of manufactured import , and same wage rates and terms ….. is that not full union , that or pay a subsidy for differential even when you have equalised certain aspects which is how the USA currency works , with a market in state jobs , which in the EU is more fixed .
    If our EU leaders are staring at the fiscal union complexity , while the financial crisis just snowballs into a sieszure of lending , then how can there be confidence in them , No plan , not even it seems at an aid level , despite the fear harming some of the countries even more and revenues dissappearing away from banks . I mean wouldnt some action have at least spared further banking deteriorations ?

    Basically to me it boils down to either explaining what of % subsidy you are going to need to make the eurozone work , to the countries that dont have franco german type economies , if you cant do that then you need different currencies and within that running said economies more in way that suites there particular ecnomic activities or strengths , hopefully well run .
    Eurobonds perhaps have some debt solutions , but then even if you get some better growth through reducing debts , if the inter zone trade differentials are still a problem, you wont be able to cap them , and just kick the debt can into a larger space to be filled a few years hence .

    This question of explaining how it will ever work to me is the most urgently expected demand that should be placed at the EU leaders to answer , shouldnt we know rather than be guessing if the crisi will crystalise into somthing that is half baked .

    and where did all that money go?

    and where’s this bullshit leading?

    well, i have to stand there telling my idiotic story to various disinterested “members” of staff who are clearly thinking “poor old bastard, he’s no idea what he’s talking about, does anyone know how can i get rid of him?”

    eventually someone does a bit of poking around and somehow discovers that the cashier removed that original £270 twice, giving me the £270 i asked for and putting the other £270 (christ knows where that went) onto my non existent overdraft, then charged me £30 for being such a naughty boy.

    thanks barclays!! i’ve got plenty of other weird and pointless barclay’s stories if anyone’s interested! barclays certainly were not! well, my darlings, i’ve sussed you out! in fact, i’ve sussed it all out! rant…rave…blither…

    It may when Eurozone becomes a single country and we will then have a chance to say what we think of our relation to it, which would be very interesting.
    There’s little doubt that a sort of Federal system is now seen in Brussels as 1) a way to ease the financial strain and 2) what they wanted all along.

    The way out of the EU? Simply rip up the treaties. The EU is an entity built on treaties and cemented with lies and deceptions, just a wall to be knocked down just like the Berlin wall. But our ruling class have a plan, they have always had a plan and no bill is going to derail it. Europe is ablaze from a series of fires deliberately started at the edges of Europe, this fire is designed to stampede the peoples of Europe into accepting full assimilation and direct rule from Brussels.

    Each target region has been fatally weakened, their ability to survive on their own sabotaged and now the Brussels spider in the web simply has to wait until the poison takes effect and each region nicely wrapped up and waiting for consumption. The Euro was designed to fail, or appear to fail would be more accurate and the remedy is already being touted by a bought off MSM. More integration and more central control from Brussels, thats the reality.

    The ugly kommissars in Brussels and their bought and paid for Vichy regimes have every reason to be confident, the fires are burning nicely, the peoples of the coming greater Europa are starting to suffer, well those parts needed to make an example to the others of what could happen IF. Those stupid mug regions offered up for sacrifice to ensure the core regions get the message and accept the ‘final solution’.

    At the end of the day everything you are seeing in Europe is the culmination of years of careful preparatory work by the Brussels kommissars, the final push to get regions the regions to accept direct rule and a new nation born out of the fires they started. An ultra secretive state machinery that thrives on secrecy and corruption and deception by a selected cabal immune from electorates will, nothing more than a recreation of China or a perfection of the USSR system of governance.

    The EU has spent a lot of time and effort in presenting a false fabricated façade it likes to show the world, but underneath the mask it is different beast altogether, it works like a Mafia family, its leaders were the Maoist/Marxist fanatics who worshipped at the alter of revolutionary world communism that hated everything about the Western system of democracy, leopards dont change their spots, the best they can do is dip themselves in the mud. The EUSSR, the reality will make you sick to your soul.

    The EU was formed primarily by two governments, Germany and France. The Germans wanted a mechanism for controlling Europe without reverting to war again and the French wanted a mechanism for controlling Germany without reverting to war again. I think the Germans have pipped the froggies to the winning post, again. The rest of them joined because they were told it would make them rich and for a while it did, poor little PIGieS.

    Putting the HQ in Brussels was of course a master stroke to keep from frightening the feeble minded down trodden masses of Euroland. It is after all only a 500 mile afternoon drive from Berlin to Brussels, should the need arise eventually, wait for it, wait for it.

    The refusal by the Germans to give more cash to the PIGS only underlines the fact that they will bring the poor little PIGieS to heel. When the whole thing topples over, as it will, the big question is what will happen to the poor little PIGieS. Will they be freed to run around the farm yard selling cheap holidays again or will they be slaughtered?

    Well one could not accuse Jimmy of giving an elaborate explanation for Labour’s and the Lib-Dems trouncing in the MEP elections, just a pathetic one. The problem with the Pro-EU loons and fruit-loops is that they have been proved wrong by events, as anyone with any intelligence (such as the Norwegians and the Swiss) could have foreseen long ago. The creation of the Euro, made possible only by the existence of the EU, has so far been the biggest man-made disaster in Europe (and possibly even the world) since WW2. And we haven’t reached the climax yet. It’s enough to make a sane person shiver.

    Mmmm. Sadly, that’s going nowhere because everyone in Parliament, nearly, are such tools. I voted for the repeal bill because it seemed more likely to at least get considered.

    If Ming Cambell is the best the eussr can put up against Dan Hannan there is no need for DC’s bill, even with the b-bbc woman interupting Dan every 30 sec poor Ming had no credibility.
    The eu is stuffed, kaput and should be put out of its misery before it does any more damage to the population of Spain and Greece.

    Apparently you are not sorry to be pedantic. Love the smugness though, similar to I’m not racist but…

    As to a Brtain which didn’t exist, I am not talking about socialist revisionist history I am talking about the reality that you cannot dis-invent. Would it be nice to not know how to make chemical weapons? Yes of course but it is not possible. Similarly it is utterly childish to strop off and say we are not playing anymore! The damage has been done we now need to manoeuvre into a position of leadership so we can have better control over the masinations of the EU

    There is absolutely no truth in the rumour’s being spread around by certain ill informed blogger’s that to make George Osborne’s brilliant idea for Growth Bonds more attractive to Mr & Mrs Joe Public, plans are being dusted off for the start of World War 3.

    I dont know about everyone else , but David Arronovitchs header in the times doesnt quite read right .

    mmmm perhaps he has new autobiographical book in mind Dial J for jackass, must be forgetting those £10k a seat cocktail circuit fundraisers in the labour years , seem to recall he was one of main organisers .

    If Dave walks into Berlin meeting and Van Rumpouy is stroking a white persian cat , just be cautious on the bridge over the shark tank , the chair with the wires or the bloke with top hat doing frisbee entertainment or anyone called Le Ceif offering to settle the whole matter with a game of poker. If matters get awkuard on the private jet meeting and the fattest one gets sucked through a window , adjust your tie “sheems like he needed to bailout all along”

    Sometimes solutions to perennial problems can be disarmingly simple.

    Kisan Baburao Hazare (aka Anna Hazare) of Bombay (Mumbai if you must) has a good approach to the administration of justice. The punishment for corrupt public officials, politicians and prime minister included, should be death.

    Eeyore says:

    Agreed. The challenge now is to take this matter forward into the realm of action. We on here are beginning to remind me of the old left: always rehearsing the grievances but never, ever, doing anything effective (and thank God for it, in their case).

    It will take time, but it seems to me that the best way forward is:-

    1. Massive defections from the Tories to UKIP at every election. This will lead to a temporary Labour govt – that’s just the price we’ll have to pay.

    2. An earthquake in the Tory party will result, causing the welcome fall of CallMeDave. The party will then abandon pragmatism/PR and adopt principle and be swept to power.

    3. The new govt’s first actions will be: repeal of all NuLab’s laws (which will strip out the extra 1m public servants they took on) and repeal of the European Communities Act.

    4. UK then enters broad, sunlit uplands, based on similar levels of trade between us and the EU, but greatly enhanced business with the BRICs. Maybe we even join ASEAN?

    A boy can dream…

    Ironside says:

    Tardkiller, from a legal perspective you are wrong.

    The Repeal Bill can only repeal what is already established by legislation. Most of that will be EU legislation, via EU directives. It cannot be repealed by our parliament which is no longer sovereign – or hadn’t you noticed ?

    The only way to give effect to such a Repeal Bill is to eliminate the source of the existing repugnant legislation. That means eliminating the not only the source but the mechanisms of enforcing the legislation. Once that is achieved, repeals can be effected.

    You must be very proud to be one of the ‘more intelligent posters’, you arrogant twat.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
