Today is September 6th. There remains just over a fortnight to go before the Blair Government capitulates, as seems pretty certain, and surrenders the veto on an important constitutional and legal issue, perhaps the key issue relating to national sovereignty.
On 22nd September Home Secretary John Reid will attend a meeting of EU Justice Ministers to discuss the abolition of the national veto on “Justice and Home Affairs”.
The effect of this would be that the EU member states could take decisions by majority voting and impose changes to our criminal law, and our police and court procedures, regardless of our wishes. The UK government has just 9% of the votes in the EU.
The EU would thus acquire one of the most essential attributes of a state – the power to determine who shall be put in prison, and by what judicial process.
