A further quick post about the previous videos: In the second video Jens-Peter Bonde informs us of the plans contained in the Treaty (unfortunately, too late now for those countries locked into this) including the fact that most laws are to be adopted in secret by civil servants. Repeat: most laws to be adopted in secret by civil servants.
The protesting MEPs were merely registering the fact that the powers contained in the Lisbon Treaty are so far-reaching that countries should be permitted to hold a referendum. Nigel Farrage requests that the vote be postponed until the next sitting in Strasbourg reasoning that this would enable MEPs to debate the Treaty and look into it.
We have come across the words “secrecy” and “haste” before. It’s difficult to see how these words can be conducive to reasoned discussion, but they do seem helpful in passing legislation that the public might not agree with.
