LEAKED: Tories Planted Questions Against Carswell Bill

Tory MPs have all been sent the following awkward questions to ask during Douglas Carswell’s Private Members Bill, chosen by the readers of this website, calling for EU withdrawal that is set to be debated on Friday:

  • The Bill, which seeks to repeal the European Communities Act 1972, was presented to Parliament  through the ballot procedure on 20 June 2012. It would have the effect of withdrawing the UK from the EU. The Government does not support the Bill.
  • Does the Minister agree that the passage of such a Bill would lead to a constitutional and political crisis within both the UK and the EU?
  • Does the Minister agree that now is not the time to take such a drastic move, given the economic turmoil that Europe is experiencing?
  • Repealing the EC Act would be a dramatic move. Does the Minister agree that the people of the UK should be consulted on such a move?
  • Does the Minister agree that, as the British people now have a vote on any future treaty change, they should also be counselled on a move as severe as withdrawing from the EU altogether?
  • Does the Minister agree that the audit of competencies should be completed before any major decisions on the UK’s future relationship with the EU?
  • Does the Minister agree that it is far better to consult the British people through the audit of competencies, rather than making a rash decision to unilaterally withdraw now?

As Guido said this morning, it’s time for the Tory backbenches to get organised and have some fun with this one…

    Because we must have ‘power’. Never mind that the French, Germans, Spanish, Italians and almost every other EU country are at odds with our opinion and will out vote us, or that we are already a member of NATO, the IMF, the UN security council etc. No, we will only ever have ‘power’ if we are a member of the EU.

    Isnt this an absolute crock of steaming hot shite, given that the vote on any future treaty changes hinges on the opinion of the Prime Minister, who can simply deem that the treaty change proposed doesnt affect the UK.

    Fuck off and die deceitful Tory traitors.

    I think borrowing £32 billion and using it to build a loss-making railway that nobody needs (right across the English countryside) is a drastic move, too. But Cameron’s not too interested in what the public think on that one. Same goes for borrowing about £11 billion every year and giving it away as foreign aid (to nuclear-armed countries). Spending £1.8 billion bugging everybody’s phone and Internet connection is also a drastic move. Dave’s not too interested in what the public have to say about that.

    Why this sudden interest in ‘consulting’ the public? Will Cameron’s ‘consultation’ be in the form of an in/out referendum, like the one he’s granted Scotland? I bet it won’t. This ‘consultation’ sounds like nothing of the sort.

    I have a simple question for those of you calling Cameron every name under the sun over this. You do remember that Mrs Thatcher never held a referendum either, don’t you? Don’t get me wrong, I think we SHOULD have an in/out referendum, but why accuse Cameron of being a traitor etc when the Tory governments between 79 and 97 did nothing over our membership either? Could it not simply be the case that, without getting too conspiratorial, the system or establishment, for want of a better name, tells every new pm that the risk of losing a referendum is too high and that we have to remain in the EU? If it was feasible, Mrs Thatcher would have done it.

    As bad as it sounds, we may have to just accept we’re stuck with being in the EU. UKIP can never form a government, Labour will never hold a referendum and they should never be allowed back in power anyway, and any potential replacement for Cameron wouldn’t hold one either.

    It’s an enduring Myth that Thatcher ran a dictatorial government. In fact she was constrained by Cabinet, hence her battle with Lawson over the defacto ERM he forced UK into by shadowing the DM, and lest we forget her downfall occurred precisely because she was opposed to the ever closer union, and was seen by the Swivel eyed crazy Euro fanatics as an obstacle to their ambition, so Howe savaged her in the Commons.

    Ooo! Ooo! Let me take a stab at answering these:

    • Certainly not! Parliament held these competencies in the UK since 1801 and in England for more than 400 years. We shall merely pick up where we left off both here and on the continent
    • Now is precisely the time. One does not wait for the ship to go beneath the waves before manning the lifeboat
    • The last time the British people were consulted they were asked to join a European free trade area. At the passage of this bill they will be a member of a European free trade area. Rather, the honorable gentleman should explain why they weren’t consulted for the intervening steps
    • I refute the premise of the honorable gentleman’s question. If it is considered “severe” to revert to representative government then he ought reconsider his “gentleness”
    • No, one does not list the symptoms of the cancer before excising the tumor.

    I’m sure Mr. Carswell MP will do much better on the day.

    The EU has a Constitution? Are they sure – far as anyone can see it’s only objectives are to make the EU political elite aka the kinnochios – rich!!

    If the UK withdrawing from EU would create a constitutional and political crisis within the EU – that is a positive outcome not a negative one.

    There is a difference between tolerating, on the basis of free speech, Hobsbawm’s defence of Stalin, and agreeing with the little shit.

    On the same basis, it is fine to bad-mouth him; it would not affect his right to hold, and express, his barmy (read: vile) views.

    People can disagree with Hobsbawm. That does not make them opponents of free speech.

    Those who have been eulogising the bastard should not be silenced either, I would agree. But they should certainly be attacked for supporting the disgusting apologist for the murderous Stalin.

    i wouldn’t allow free speech for a f#cking traitor who would have sold the english into soviet slavery. I’d have had the c#nt deloused. I want a liberal, tolerant, free speech society – but we’ll have to round up and murder the socialists in order to get it.

    i was too young to vote on it. I’m in my 40s now and still haven’t had the chance. The EU will go the way of the USSR one day. We’ll look back and wonder how people can have been so stupid. Might take a civil war in Greece first though

    This is the time to answer all questions that come up regarding the E.U. awkward questions or not. queries on leaving the E.U. of today should hold no fear for the likes of U.K.I.P. who have researched, and studied this very concept. what we know, see and understand of the E.U. today, we have a very convincing need to have our country withdrawing from being part of a European parliament, and we are ready to return to self determination, our country’s sovereignty, and own ability without having to pay billions of pounds a year to a foreign interfeering, undemocratic, political system for the privilege!

    Does the minister agree that Heath was a traitor and the 1975 referendum was a sham, promising us cheap booze and fags that never materialised.

    Now you let yourself down. I acknowledged your point above which I must presume you read.

    However, the very construction of your last sentence which contained the caveat necessarily entail, allows that there are those who would have censored him, thus making my original point.

    Farage: “I am making a list, and their names will all go on this list. When the UKIP have won this war they will all be brought to account.

    Clegg: “UKIP aren’t going to win this war.”

    Farage: “Your name will also go on the list. What is it?”

    Cameron: “Don’t tell him, Clegg!”

    SC – Have you read the book “Under the sign of the scorpion” by Juri Lina? It’s one hell of a read despite attempts (by many) worldwide to ban it.

    Blowing Whistles says:

    Anne Applebaum – perhaps regrets publishing her book “Gulag a History” – it is an excellent book. However I do not agree with her views about Polanksi.

    She is married to Sikorsky – who was the only person in the Polish Government to not be on that plane which crashed a couple of years ago as it headed for a long standing memorial to Polish soldiers murdered by Stalin.

    Quiet Bat Person says:

    Your acknowledgement was posted a minute after my post. So, obviously, I had not read it when I posted.

    Your original point was about bad mouthing, not, explicitly, about censoring.

    It’s coming through a hole in the air,
    from those nights in Tiananmen Square.
    It’s coming from the feel
    that this ain’t exactly real,
    or it’s real, but it ain’t exactly there.
    From the wars against disorder,
    from the sirens night and day,
    from the fires of the homeless,
    from the ashes of the gay:
    Democracy is coming to the EUSR

    Sorry L Cohen…. Oh so kin true

    OK but do you believe that is the plan? I find it hard to believe this government has ANY plan other than building up a gold plated pension pot and looking for a nice EU or consulting job a la Kinnoch or Mandelson.

    I asked my MP if he would be representing his constituents in the debate……

    he replied;

    Thank you. I will, as usual, be in the constituency on Friday. I do not know what Douglas is proposing.

    To those that mention that Maggie Thatcher didn’t have a referendum either well here’s news for you she was shafted by her closest friends i.e. John Major et al when she finally said enough is enough to the EU, she wanted to have a referendum but her “friends” betrayed her to solve that problem, I really think there is a power that we don’t know about yet that has bought and owns all these politicians, like some secretive powerful group of old money, hey they could be the old vampires taking over the world for the world government!

    Loco! says:

    We should renegotiate and be part of the European Free Trade Area that would allow us to negotiate our own trade deals with anyone we want that way we can do business with the EU and we could do our own business with the other countries of the world on our own which we can’t presently!

    Archie says:

    I’m rather confused here, Guido, old sport, let’s see if I’ve read this correctly. If I’m right, then Doug Carswell’s Bill is the product of your co-conspirators, i.e. good; but then these questions that you list above have been foisted on Tory backbenchers by the Whips’ Office to sink the Bill, i.e. self-evidently bad?

    Anyoldiron says:

    1) I no longer trust any of the three major political parties to hold a true and fair referendum on the issue of an “in or OUT” of the EU, referendum.

    2) Our Constitution does not allow foreigners to make laws for the United Kingdom that even an elected British Government has to obey. “…all usurped and foreign power and authority…may forever be clearly extinguished, and never used or obeyed in this realm. …no foreign prince, person, prelate, state, or potentate…shall at any time after the last day of this session of Parliament, use, enjoy or exercise any manner of power, jurisdiction, superiority, authority, preeminence or privilege…within this realm, but that henceforth the same shall be clearly abolished out of this realm, for ever.”

    3) The people therefore cannot encourage foreigners in any way what-so-ever, even financially, to make laws that even a British Government has to obey.

    Either this Government takes this OUR Country out of the European Union themselves, or the people will indeed use their long standing Common Law Constitution for themselves.

    The daily assault on our beleaguered finances to prop up an ailing/illegal EU has to come to an end.
    We did not vote for this, because Heath knowingly lied to the country and as a result committed treason against the people. The fact that we cannot be governed by a foreign power, seems to have escaped the notice of every leader since. Luckily i voted against this in the 70’s but others were not so intelligent, failing to see through Heath’s blatant lies.
    Each successive Govt had the ability to scrap what he did (no Govt can bind its successors) but none of them ever did…so it stands to reason that they too committed treason, which makes the whole thing null and void and those guilty should be arrested.
    Given these facts…we have never actually been in the EU, so to Repeal the 1972 Act, is a mere formality.
    This Cameron must do – it is the will of the people, or be made to pay for ignoring our wishes.

    This country does not belong to them, it belongs to us and they have no right to give it away without our consent.

    WE HAVE NEVER GIVEN THAT CONSENT

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
