Labour the party of broken promises

April 25, 2009

Despite numerous promises and prominent European leaders stating that the treaty that Gormless Gordon and his chums have signed us up to being essentially the same as what Gormless promised us a referendum on I thought I would contact my MP. Mr Chris Bryant, below is my letter and below that his reply. The sooner this morally inept bunch are out of power the better.

Dear Chris Bryant,

As My Mp I would like to know your stance on the failed promise of the
Labour Government to give the people of the United Kingdom a referendum
on Europe. I wonder on your stance when Labour MP Alice Mahon stated
that part of the reason for her resignation was the governments failure
to live up to it’s promise under the election manifesto.

As I remember all major parties agreed that they would hold a
referendum on something so momentous for everyone in Britain yet we are
refused access to this.

I would also like to point out that as people are getting more and more
frustrated by the Labour establishments failure to deliver on it’s
promises that this may well be a deciding factor in upcoming elections.

The Government keeps telling us that this is nothing like the EU
constitution but other European Leaders have said that this is so. Why
is the Labour party so afraid of giving it’s electorate the chance to
make it’s own mind up

I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Griffiths.

Dear Richard
I’m afraid I disagree with you – and I do not believe we should be
having a referendum, a point I have made for several years now.  I do
not believe that referendums are a proper way of consulting the public
as they undermine the democratic parliamentary process. I know it seems
like nit-picking but our commitment was to a referendum on the
Constitutional Treaty.  This was rejected by two countries and is
therefore no longer being considered.  The rather different Lisbon
Treaty is now before us and I think it is a good deal for Britain.  We
never held referendums on the Maastricht, Amsterdam or Nice Treaties and
I think one would be inappropriate now.
I am sorry to disappoint you yet further.
Yours truly, Chris

Britains Shame

April 25, 2009

Speak to any either serving or former soldier and ask what a Gurkha is.

“They are the epitiome of honour and courage, men who are willing to lay down their lives for their comrades and too often for a country not their own”

Well the Labour government brought shame once again to Britain yesterday with the despicable ruling on the Gurkha’s. At a time when so many migrants that come here come here just for the benefits that they get so easily, we turn our back on men that have fought and been wounded in service to this country.

Any man who pulls on this countrys uniform should be entitled if they so wish to call themselves British. I have always been proud of my country until now.

Halt Lisbon Treaty-Tories speak sense labour once again ignores the people

June 13, 2008

Halt Lisbon Treaty process - Hague

William Hague speaks sense, speaks for the majority of people in Britain. But our Labour government the supposed party of the people once again shows how out of touch it is with the voters. What is it with the EU and the Labour Party in particular that they show such contempt for the people they are supposed to represent.

Shadow foreign secretary William Hague has said the Government should now halt the ratification process of the Lisbon Treaty after it was thrown out by voters in Ireland.

“Alone in Europe they have had the chance to make their views known. If democracy in the EU is to mean anything their decision must be respected,” he said.

“The British Government must respect the Irish people’s verdict. Ratification of the Lisbon Treaty in Parliament must be stopped immediately.”

He said that if Government still wanted to go ahead with ratification, it must now give people in Britain a say through a referendum.

The final referendum result showed 53.4% voted No, while 46.6% voted Yes. There were 862,415 No votes to 752,451 Yes votes, a majority of 109,964.

Critics said the “No” vote in Ireland represents the same fatal blow to the Lisbon Treaty as was dealt to the EU Constitution by French and Dutch voters in 2005.

Downing Street declined to comment on reports that the Prime Minister had called French president Nicolas Sarkozy to assure him that British ratification would continue.

The House of Lords this week cleared the way for Parliament to ratify the treaty when it rejected a Conservative bid to force a referendum.

But prominent eurosceptic David Heathcoat-Amory insisted the Government must “go back to the drawing board” and respect the voters of Holland, France and Ireland.

“The Bill before the British Parliament must be withdrawn because under the European Union‘s own laws this cannot proceed now. The Lisbon Treaty is dead,” the Tory MP told BBC Radio 4’s The World At One.
