Book Description

5 May 2009
May 2009 will be the tenth anniversary of the first elections to the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly. This was the beginning of a decade of change - which now includes the restoration of powers to Stormont - that is showing every sign of being an irreversible process. Breaking Up Britain is a unique collection of English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish contributors, featuring key political activists from the nationalist parties, commentators and campaigners, academics and journalists. Each writer explores the change that the break-up demands in their own nation, but also discusses its impact upon the whole. This dialogue of differences is essential reading for anyone interested in the shape of politics and culture after a Union. 'This brilliant book helps us understand what Scots, Welsh, Irish and English neighbours, freed from an unhappy Union, might look like.' Billy Bragg

1.0 out of 5 stars Frank, rank, treachery 1 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
It's frank - the title shows their contributors' intention - the break-up of our country.
Usually, the advocates of devolution are more secretive about their intentions.
Surely all of us can see that the European Union has been, for decades, pushing this agenda of breaking up Britain, in order more easily to rule over us.
So these contributors are, wittingly or not, obeying the dictates of a foreign power.
They are acting as agents of a foreign power, and there is a word for that crime.

The Lisbon Treaty gives the EU powers to give itself whatever new powers it wants, without any more treaties or referendums, so it doesn't have to risk ever having another treaty or referendum. All the parliamentary parties know this, but they don't mention it, never mind oppose it. So where's the democracy? The EU has none.

All the parliamentary parties repeatedly promised us a referendum on the EU Constitution/Lisbon Treaty, but they have all reneged on those promises. So where's the honesty, where's the representation? There is none.
We are now to be governed under the terms of the Lisbon Treaty - so they could now legally impose the euro on us, if we permit it.
