How we were taken into the EU illegally by Edward Heath

We were taken into the EU illegally, so is our membership even legal now?  An article by writer Vernon Cole explains  PM Edward Heath should have held a Referendum before he signed the treaty that gave away our sovereignty to the EU. Parliament has legal sovereignty, but the people have political sovereignty. edwardheathIn 1972, Heath was afraid to hold a Referendum, because there was huge antipathy to the Common Market at that time. (2 to 1).  So without holding the requisite Referendum,  he signed the European Communities Bill, making us part of the Common Market that later became the EU.

Vernon Cole says:  “In 1972, when Heath decided to take Britain into the Common Market, he used Parliament’s legal sovereignty to deny and permanently limit the political sovereignty of the electorate. Heath and Parliament changed the basic rules and they did not have the right (legal or moral) to do that. The 1972 European Communities Bill wasn’t just another Act of Parliament. Heath’s Bill used Parliament’s legal sovereignty, and status as representative of the electorate, to deny the fundamental rights of the electorate.

In an attempt to make our membership legal, Harold Wilson held a  “retrospective Referendum”, but according to many British constitutional experts, this referendum was also illegal.

Mr. Cole says:  “Attempts through the courts to annul our membership of the European Union on the basis that Parliament acted improperly have failed because Parliament, through its legal sovereignty, is the source of the law in Britain and the courts are, therefore, unable to challenge any Parliamentary Act.”

Additionally, Cameron and Osborne were so desperate to stay in the EU this year,  they tried to rig this latest Referendum and broke many of the rules governing the legal procedure.  This could have made them vulnerable to a legal challenge that this Referendum also is illegal.

In these circumstances, it is clear that any legal challenge or claim by Remain that we should stay in the EU, in spite of the democratic will of the people, is morally wrong, never mind legally and would be  doomed to failure. Politicians could vote on the Referendum Bill which passed 6 to 1.  So they cannot expect legally expect another vote on our vote in the EU Referendum.

Update:  Details of how Ted Heath blatantly lied to the people of this country are here. Many other politicians colluded in these lies.

The Queen is the protector of our sovereignty and of all our rights and freedoms.

Update:  23/11/17   More detail on how Edward Heath deceived us about how we would lose our rights in the EU. An FCO document, no. 30/1048 kept the truth from the people of Britain for thirty years.

  1. It’s normal for government to deceive the British people all the same ps where are all the good MPs you said about

  2. Remember Heath lied that joining involved no loss of sovereignity he and his successors gave away powers that were not theirs to surrender.

    • I know. Heath deceived the British people with blatant lies and successive governments have been shafting us ever since. It is time for that to stop now.

    • Nothing changes the country has been deceived by government all along and probably will continue !!

      • I don’t think, because we have been so misled, that we are even legally in at all! But they don’t like to say!

  3. More fantasyland.

    ” An article by writer Vernon Cole explains PM Edward Heath should have held a Referendum before he signed the treaty that gave away our sovereignty to the EU. Parliament has legal sovereignty, but the people have political sovereignty”

    Actually, what it makes is a pseudo-law “armchair expert” argument that because people were consulted before (they weren’t really, but I’ll humour him on that one), and because Heath didn’t have a referendum, it wasn’t legal.

    Even if it was true, and the people did need to be consulted before the constitution could be changed, then it was still legal. The Conservative’s made it clear in their 1970 manifesto that they intended to negotiate our entry into the EEC, and then put it to parliament for its approval.

    So the whole process was mandated through the democratic process when people voted for them in the 1970 election.

    Will the EU have to pay back every penny they squeezed out of the UK. Like PPI ?.Because legally it seems we are NOT in the EU.

  6. It has always amazed me how Heath did it..I mean treason. Treason on such a massive scale that many cannot comprehend how nearly everyone in the political establishment colluded, compassed and imagined the end of their own country. This was never an ordinary treaty, this was a plot to destroy nation states across the whole of Europe and the political class are still plotting to keep us in. Nothing has changed since June 23rd. We are still in whether legally or illegally.

    Where were the constitutional experts in 1972 to alert us that joining up to the Common Market would go against the articles of supremacy written into our law, such as Bill of Rights 1688? But then the Attorney General is a political appointment. He was hardly going to arrest his Tory chum Ted Heath.
    Where were the police to arrest the entire Heath Cabinet? In those days just to give away a small slice of sovereignty meant you would be hung by the neck until dead.

    • After Heath, Wilson, Brown, Blair, Callaghan, Major, and Cameron all lied to us one way and another over the EU. The Battle of Brexit was the most important battle, I think, ever fought in Britain, even though it wasn’t with weapons.

      I campaigned on social media for the Ref. . Never ever have I felt such passionate feeling from ordinary people. Suddenly they wer galvanised to fight for their rights, a feeling that still exists today. I was proud to vote with Labour grasroots and I have been a lifelong Tory. It changed my view of politics forever, the scales fell from peoples’ eyes. We saw how we had been deceived, but the penny dropped we don’t have to let that happen.

  7. Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage were epic. Legends.
