‘EU parliament has no power to bring forward legislation’

April 29, 2019

DEMOCRACY DENIED: “The very definition of this is if you treat with a foreign power if you go behind Parliament’s back and you make negotiated agreements which would change UK legislation which specifically prevents you from what you are doing – that is high treason. It cannot be retrospectively rectified by Parliament as they have attempted to do.” – Lord Monckton on the legal context of extending Article 50.

 

 

REVISING CHAMBER: On explaining to a young remainer on a train the workings of how legislation is initiated in the European Union. They (the EU commission) have the right at will (under the Maastricht Treaty and it is mentioned five times) to override any decision of the elected European Parliament. I said ‘did you know that?’ and he said ‘no’.”

 

 

A BREXIT peer of the realm has accused the Prime Minister of breaking the law by negotiating Article 50’s extension without Parliament’s consent.

This was one of the central themes Lord Christopher Monckton told a small gathering of supporters as a venue near Liverpool. The full talk can be viewed here.

Lord Monckton recalled a conversation he had a teenager who voted to remain in the European Union on a train up to the North West, where he was scheduled to address a gathering of activists. It was his first ever vote cast and it was in the EU Referendum.

‘European Parliament cannot create law’

“I said this is how a law is made in the European Union. Stage One is to propose a law. Did you know that the European Parliament that we elect cannot bring forward a bill, to which the young lad said ‘what’. It has no power to bring forward a bill.

“Only The unelected commission decide what is put before and therefore what is not put before the European Parliament. Did you know what happens the European Parliament makes a decision the unelected commissar (EU commission) doesn’t like, who prevails.

‘The Commission has the final say on EU legislation’

“They (the EU commission) have the right at will (under the Maastricht Treaty and it is mentioned five times) to override any decision of the elected European Parliament. I said ‘did you know that?’ and he said ‘no’. This is how serious this is.

“You, as a young lad, believe in Europe, so do I and it is because I am pro-European that I am anti the European Union. Europe was the continent that gave to the world not only the concept but the name and reality of democracy and yet the European Union is anti-democratic and the will of the people does not prevail.”

‘Parliament cannot be bi-passed when talking to Brussels’

Lord Monckton accused the Prime Minister Theresa May of “treason” for going behind the back of Parliament and negotiating with the EU directly to extend Article 50.

He claimed the Government will do either of two things if the extensions to 12 April and 23 May, agreed by MPs in parliamentary votes have been subsequently ignored by Mrs May and her advisors.

“They will go back to Europe to get a further extension again without having gone to Parliament first or they will unilaterally withdraw from the whole thing again without having gone to Parliament first.

“If they do either of these two things, this is what the law says. If you treat with a foreign power which goes behind the back of Parliament and repudiates an act of Parliament without having obtained the consent of Parliament that is by definition high treason.

‘This is the definition of high treason’

“The very definition of this is if you treat with a foreign power (the EU) if you go behind Parliament’s back and you make negotiated agreements which would change UK legislation which specifically prevents you from what you are doing – that is high treason. It cannot be retrospectively rectified by Parliament as they have attempted to do.”
