This can be proven with the Bill of Rights 1689 and the Lisbon Treaty, although the same can be said for the previous European Union Treaties.
Firstly, not only is the Bill of Rights 1689 still in force, it, by definition, cannot be removed, changed or signed away by anyone. Least of all Parliament, further details can be found here.
This section of the Bill of Rights is taken from www.statutelaw.gov.uk. It states the following;
And I doe declare That noe Forreigne Prince Person Prelate, State or Potentate hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction Power Superiority Preeminence or Authoritie Ecclesiasticall or Spirituall within this Realme Soe helpe me God.
In other words, we may not be ruled in any way, shape or form by any foreign entity.
Now to the Lisbon Treaty/ Constitution. Firstly;
The analysis finds that only 10 out of 250 proposals in the new treaty are different from the proposals in the original EU Constitution. In other words, 96% of the text is the same as the rejected Constitution. – Open Europe.
Within the Lisbon Treaty is Declaration 17 concerning Primacy. Download it here. (Pg 26)
The Conference recalls that, in accordance with well settled case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union, the Treaties and the law adopted by the Union on the basis of the Treaties have primacy over the law of Member States, under the conditions laid down by the said case law.
So the European Union has supremacy over British Law. This is illegal. Not only that, but at this moment;
80 per cent of Britain’s laws are now made in Brussels and Parliament has no power to reject or amend them – Peter Lilley.
More information below.
The total scale of EU legislation is enormous. Last year, the EU passed 177 directives, which are more or less equivalent to our Acts of Parliament, and 2,033 regulations, which become directly enforceable in this place, not to mention 1,045 decisions. Even that huge tally ignores the extent to which our powers are diminished by our inability to do things that we would like to do because they would conflict with European law. When I was a Minister, officials would frequently say, “No, Minister, you can’t do that”, because something was within the exclusive competence of the European Union. – Peter Lilley, House of Commons, Daily Hansard, 3 Jun 2008, 3.35 pm.
A few recent regulatory charades actually came from Brussels;
Indeed, Ministers often end up nobly accepting responsibility for laws that they actually opposed when they were being negotiated in Brussels. They took the rap for costly and troublesome home improvement packs—which have added to the woes of the housing market—even though they were actually mandated by a Brussels directive. Similarly, they took the rap for fortnightly bin collections, hospital reconfiguration and a number of other measures, even though they had all been triggered by directives from Brussels. At first sight, it is odd that Ministers—who, in this Government, are not normally slow to blame others—should nobly defend and accept responsibility for Brussels’ legislative progeny, in whose conception they have often played little part. They prefer to claim paternity rather than admit impotence—the fate of the cuckold across the ages. – Peter Lilley, House of Commons, Daily Hansard, 3 Jun 2008, 3.35 pm.
Any member of Parliament who claims that the majority of Laws and Regulations imposed on the British do not originate from the EU are either ignorant or lying. Probably so they can continue to line their own pockets.
