“most laws to be adopted in secret by civil servants”

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.

  1. I wonder how far away from that we are already in the iom. If the politicians know this then do they have a vested interest in keeping up the pretence?

  2. That’s the question, isn’t it? There are such similarites in practices in the western world, at least, that it seems unlikely to be a coincidence. Therefore, it seems fair to assume that these practices are being intentionally adopted. How many of our politicians are really awake to this situation? Vigilance is required.

    An interesting little comment from Valerie Giscard D’Estaing (prior to Ireland’s yes vote to the Lisbon Treaty):
    Public opinion will be led – without knowing it – to adopt the policies we would never dare present to them directly. All the earlier proposals will be in the new text, but will be hidden or disguised in some way.
