This is a joke bill, right? What is your reasoning for creating the "United States of Europe"? I urge anyone with a sense of logical thinking to vote Nay.

Can I ask whether there was any input by other Green party members on this?

Nay, as pro-EU as I am I don't think it's in anybody's interest for it to take over sovereignty from member states.

This cannot be serious? No way Jose, the surrender of British sovereignty should never happen. Even if it is a joke Bill, it needs to be something more along the lines of "Free Oral For the Elderly Bill" which we had years ago

Is this some very subtle form of satire?

In what way? I believe it's a really good idea. I could also encourage that the African Union and South American Union do the same.

Anyone who supports such nonsense ought to be ashamed of themselves.

To be fair to Aph, I read the bill as the UK taking these steps if the EU begins the process of becoming a super-state, not that he's calling for the EU to become a super-state.

Still a Nay from me, though. I don't trust the European political system.

'No'.

Even if i could be persuaded to support the UK joining a union with anybody, the EU has a mirade of issues which would need to be sorted before i could even consider this and short of treaties with the MUN you couldn't really do it on here.

That being said, i'll play along and comment on this bill more widely..

1) Formatting needs sprucing up as does your spelling and grammar

2) Define what would mark the beginning of the process to becoming a super-state? Personally i'm not really euro-skeptic but i believe they've already begun making section 1 mute in part.

3) Section 3 breaches the rules for joining the Euro. We'd have to enter ERM2 for at least 2 years while satisfying other conditions.

4) Why? Justify this.

5) Makes little sense. To not protect UK borders means that non-EU immigrants can come. If your referring to what EU countries should do then this parliament does not have the legal power to make them do so.

6) As of right now we have no head of state.

7) Why? Why would us joining the EU affect our troops in Western Africa (something no doubt supported by the EU).

8) There is no president of the european union, going back to the point in post 5, we don't have the legal power to force one on them.

I need a drink after reading this unsupportable bill. I am not sure if Aph is actually pro-EU or if he is playing devil's advocate in a weird satirical way. British sovereignty should never be surrendered. If the EU want a United States of Europe they could had over their sovereignty to London; I would have no issues with that.

Furthering the discussion, could the author advise the house of plans for a military, treasury, border force, education departments, constituencies, role of current politicians, foreign policy and all of the other things an individual country has. What does he want the single European country to look like?

No, although it'd be a nice (very) long term plan.

That being said, i'll play along and comment on this bill .
1) I admit that it's not good but it is better then my previous drafts.
2) when all member states surrender sovereignty to Brussels.
3) that assumes we use the euro in a untitled states of Europe.
4) it is important that the whole of Europe learns the same things and goes towards creating a common language.
5) said nothing about not protecting boarders. I said we would open all boarders to eu citizens but non eu citizens would face thougher controls with more people guarding the boarder.
6) this is a future bill by which time we should have a head of state. If we can get the presidential amendment though.
7) the point is it shouldn't but if we get into a war which the new state doesn't want then we should call troops back.
8) there is? The Belgium guy who the uk opposed.
