Why Renegotiating Lisbon Is A Possibility For the UK

All politicians are full of cockwaffle, which means that they'll change what they actually do if they think it'll save their skins or make their lives easier.

Pondering on the juggernautish inevitability of the Lisbon Constitution being ratified by all subservient 'partenaires' of the great European Project (the fart-arsing of the Czechs notwithstanding) it struck me that Cameron and his crew could indeed hold a referendum on the whole or parts of said 'Treaty', and thus demand substantial changes with regard to the UK (not as good as outright withdrawal, of course) without necessarily alienating all our 'allies' across the Channel.

I base this idea upon three factors: the first being that the EU wants our money as much as it wants our subservience. Six billion quid a year may be a small part of their bloodsucker's budget but six billion is still six billion. If pushed to the wall then Cameron could simply say "fuck you, chaps, no cash from us unless we get what we want". Yes, I know I am being naive, but in the end this is a matter of plain power politics. The French and Italian governments are continuously fucking around with money and the EU and getting away with it.

Our politicians have continuously proved to lack nous or balls when confronted with the despots of the EU (even Thatcher caved in) but the bureaucrats in Brussels are so desperate to get this thing in place they might just go along with concessions for the UK as long as they can subjugate the rest.

The second factor is that, as we have seen from the words of the Grand Constitutional Architect himself, M Valery Giscard d'Estaing (see previous posts) the Franco-German pact is the EU. As long this holds, no one else matters. And, certainly as far The Grand Architect and his friends are concerned, the UK is not a player, merely an insignificant occasional irritant. In other words, they don't give a fuck about us.

Thirdly, Berlusconi and others have already been talking about developing a two-tier EU if the Lisbon Constitution does not receive full acceptance (see earlier posts).

Put that together and you have a scenario in which the UK government could go the people in a referendum and then ask (nay, demand) either de-ratification of the Treaty with regard to the UK or substantial renegotiation. The EU may get sick of the delays and aggravation and just say yes, after all.

The EU are bullies and liars. They're not used to national politicians standing up to them, particularly from the UK. It's about time they got a dose of their own medicine. Our liberty and freedom to govern ourselves are at stake.

It is, of course, not likely to happen.

The question really is, what are we, as British citizens, going to do to resist and subvert the EU Project within our shores?
