Lord Admiral NelsonIn October, Lord Nelson halted the empire-building aspirations of France and Spain at Trafalgar, 202 years ago.

Against a superior force, the English fleet engaged and emerged victorious losing not one ship but sustaining 449 fatalities including Lord Nelson and 1,242 casualties - was it worth it?

All these years later and again in October, Gordon Brown, the latest in a long line of treacherous Prime Ministers, went to Lisbon and surrendered the last vestiges of Britain's sovereign powers into foreign hands.

Mr Brown stated: "There will be no more European Union changes for a decade." He failed to mention that further changes are not required.

The European Union need only implement this insidious treaty to arm itself with all the powers it ever yearned for. Remember, 12 months ago Brown's four "red-lines" were five "red-lines" until Tony Blair surrendered our rebate.

Mr Brown and his co-conspirators David Miliband and Jim Murphy all resort to smoke and mirrors over any referendum.

"Of the 27 member countries only Ireland has felt the need to hold a referendum".

The truth is that many of those member countries would have liked one but have been denied by the peculiar brand of democracy practised in the EU. Accept this treaty and we are staring down the throat of a new Soviet-style Politburo!
