    No surprise. A union founded to reign in German ambition is anti-democratic (hitler was elected democratically).

    He could have saved himself a whole trip to Brussels if he just downloaded the PDF of the most current EU treaties.

    The UK losing sovereignty to the EU isn't some state secret. It's kinda how the EU works, all member states lose some degree of sovereignty.

    Of course. Tell me any relationship that doesn't involve give and take?

    Except the EU haven't been particularly blunt about it since 2005, the job of the Eurocrat is to create a federal Europe without people realising until it's too late.

    Ok?

    I mean it's pretty bad PR to go around yelling ''WE HAVE CONTROL OVER YOU!'' but I doubt anyone really tried to keep this secret, not that there's really much purpose in doing so.

    The Lisbon treaty and the EU constitution are almost the exact same document, what's the difference between them? The later is a constitution, it shouts federalisation and doesn't inclide Monnet's golden rule of making people think it's good for the economy (there's a reason every referendum regarding the EU has pedalled the same **** about being outside relegating you to economic irrelevance), the former doesn't. The other big difference is that Constitution was rejected and Lisbon wasn't.

    Im glad that you've admitted that UK has lost it's sovereignty because it is true.

    I feel like UK's sovereignty has been invaded in the past 100 years. The EU politicians have been working on this project for around 100 years, wiggling themselves into 28 country's sovereignty and spreading their control.

    I also feel like EU countries like Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, etc should not be poor. It has always been possible for them to get rich when they entered the EU. The EU has enough money to invest in such countries or help them grow by letting them make trade deals with any country. However, the EU has restricted them from growing. And as a result, their struggling citizens are coming to the UK in high numbers.

    I hope everyone on TSR looks at the unbiased video on top of this thread so we can wake up and to at least see the truth, and to see how the EU is actually managed.
