Britain and the EU

Despite the fact that Ireland has rejected the EU treaty and by the EU’s own laws this means it can’t be ratified or imposed on any country, Britain is going to ratify the treaty anyway:

“Liberal Democrats in the upper chamber, said in an interview. “Our intention is to see the bill pass. We’re not going to fall into the Conservative elephant traps along the way.”

Britain is one of the countries where opposition is fiercest. This explains why their prime minister refuses to let his own people vote on the treaty:

“Brown has rejected calls for a popular ballot in Britain.”

That’s because he knows the popular answer will be no. The government is going to do what it wants ignoring the people’s wishes. That doesn’t sound like a free society, does it?
