BBC Repeats Usual Lies About Lisbon Treaty

Czech court clears Lisbon Treaty
The Czech constitutional court has ruled that the Lisbon Treaty is in line with the constitution, clearing the way for President Vaclav Klaus to sign it.

The Czech Republic is the only EU member yet to ratify the treaty, and the decision removes the penultimate hurdle to its passage.

The Eurosceptic Mr Klaus, who was awaiting the court's decision, has said he will not further oppose the treaty.

The treaty was drawn up to streamline decision-making in the 27-member body.

Its supporters say it will allow the bloc to operate more efficiently and give it greater influence in world affairs. Critics say it will cede too many national powers to Brussels.
To be fair to the BBC, this line is the one churned out by most of the ignorant and feckless British media.

The Lisbon Treaty is the former European Constitution in a new format. It has nothing to do with 'streamlining' anything. It has nothing to do with operating more 'efficiently'.

It is about establishing a United States of Europe in the form of the EU as a federal superstate, whose citizens we become. It is about transferring more and more sovereignty to unelected politicians in Brussels.

Do any of these overpaid goons ever do any research?
