Cameron acts on localism!
Cameron has successfully introduced a new principle for British politics. If a majority of the member states of the European Union disagree with a new law passed by the European legislature then that law may be disregarded. This is despite both the upper and lower houses of the European legislature having voted in favour of the law.
On this basis, if a majority of councils in Britain disagree with a new law passed by the British Parliament that that law may be disregarded. This is despite both the upper and lower houses of the British parliament voting in favour of the law.
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Let all our councils band together to ignore the faceless bureaucrats in Whitehall and bring our democracy home!
Whenever you hear an MP say “we” in reference to the European debate just remember that they speak about themselves – not us – and, of course, they do not want power to move up or down from their clutches. That power they usurped by force in 1689 and have succeeded in keeping it in their iron grip ever since. Do turkeys ever vote for Christmas?
