EU Constitution still won't die

Spain has today held a meeting of the 18 EU member states which have ratified the EU constitution in an attempt to bolster Germany's attempts to resurrect the rejected document. These Eurocrats just don't quite get democracy, do they? Every day I become more convinced that the powers that be are trying to implement the Soviet Union Mark II without the general population even having a say. We often worry about the United States of Europe, when they're really trying to build a European Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The EU constitution would include a common foreign policy and and would extend EU interventionism into almost every tenet of government. Our own government is far too intent on interfering in our lives as it is - the last thing we need is unelected European bureaucrats doing the same with bells on. The introduction of the EU constitution would be the final nail in the coffin for the independence of the member states. It would also enshrine the European Regions, which completely abolish England. The English will be reduced to the same struggle as other landless peoples like the Kurds.

For her part, Andrea Merkel, the CDU Chancellor of Germany, which currently holds the rotating EU Presidency says that to not complete the institutional reforms in the constitution would be an "historic mistake". Britain's real historic mistake was joining the EEC/EC/EU way back in 1973.
