"The EU has no power over parliament. In fact the Lisbon Treaty included a change for a provision to leave the EU. Parliament can simply refuse to incorporate EU law and in my view should be a bit more critical.
People also get confused between the EU and the Council of Europe."
Rt Hon John Hemming MP to Mr Rolf Norfolk, emailed 22 March 2011
In view of this, be prepared to challenge any Minister who claims that something is so and cannot be changed, because of European legislation. The struggle is between the people and their supposed representatives in Parliament.
