Treasonous Lords Committee plays down EU Constitution

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Lords Constitution Committee has said that the EU not-a-constitution does not have any constitutional implications for UK citizenship.

They cite the clauses specifically setting out the right of a member state to withdraw as “evidence” that parliamentary sovereignty remains intact.  Bullshit.  As it stands now, we have the right to withdraw whenever and however we want.  When the EU not-a-constitution comes into force we will be allowed to withdraw only by following the rules set out in the Lisbon Treaty and the legality of any withdrawal will be determined by European Courts.  This is NOT confirming parliamentary sovereignty.  Losing the right to decide whether to be in or out of the EU on our own terms is the right of a sovereign parliament, having to ask the EU for permission to leave on its terms means that parliament is inferior to the EU.

Does anyone know how many of the Lords on the Constitution Committee have worked for the EU in the past and are therefore at risk of losing their EU pensions if they fail to promote the EU?
