The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

Lord Norton

The House of Lords Constitution Committee is required to report to the House on Bills of constitutional significance.  The Committee’s practice is to publish a report once a Bill arrives in the House.  However, the constitutional significance of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, which has just been introduced in the Commons, is such that the Committee has published an interim report, identifying three broad constitutional themes.  ‘Those themes respectively concern the relationship between the Parliament and the executive, the rule of law and legal certainty, and the stability of the UK’s territorial constitution.’  We draw attention to the highly complex nature of the Bill and its convoluted drafting and structure.  You can read the report here.

This is an interim report.  The committee is embarking on a more detailed inquiry, which will draw out more fully the implications of the Bill’s provisions.

    Some of us may already be seeing the traditional UK Constitution, Establishment and Parliamentary Governance Systems as being not just “convoluted” but
    “deliberately devil’s-gordion-knotted” –
    utterly “imprisoned”
    such that because of our “Blind” constitution we too are kept both “blind” and “disabled” –
    towards the world’s and its peoples’ needs and predicaments.-

    Both the Constitution and the ensuing Laws and People-Enablements are kept impossible to be brought and kept up-to-date.

    Currently an instance has been clearly and scientificly reported,
    including within the public TV documentary “How Many People Can Live On Planet Earth?” hosted by Sir David Attenborough –
    the “New and Alarming Fact” – that the UK population is consuming –
    but also wasting as well –
    5-times more than its fair-share
    of the whole Earth’s produce and resources

    [that USA people consume and waste 9-times more than their fair-share –
    does less than nothing to “excuse” our living “only” 5-times way-beyond-both-our-and-the Earth’s-means ].
    Our “Brexit” “disaster-in-progress” is focally this precise lack of “sustainworthiness” and “sustainworthy-ing” people-enablements in our Constitution, Establishment, Governance-Methodology, and Cooperatively-Participative-Democratisation Intents and Preparednesses.
    Thus, I fear that the “three broad constitutional themes” may still be oblivious to the real threats of “life-extinction” and “civilisational-collapse” that increasingly yet still insidiously threaten our whole Human Race’s existence, and also the future life of practically all of trhe large and medium-sized lifeforms on this Planet.
    [Three not-for-profit, power nor prestige e-sites throwing some published ‘light’ and sober knowledge, fact and guidance, applicable to this deeply-hidden Issue,
    are ; ; and ].

      @ Miles JSD

      There is far more to worry about than whether the planet can sustain the human race. It is the practice of the European Union ‘withdrawal’ Policy Bill. The transference of the whole package along with the little known Coudenhove-Kallergi plan in its entirety, directly into British Law. This practice and movement is something that needs open acknowledgement and discussion by all citizens of the UK as it instigates complete transference of power from the people to an unelected world government

      Here is a link to those who have won the ‘Charlmagne Prize’ for promoting this European policy. You will be surprised by some of the names.

      Next you have to read what the policy includes, so a must is, Practical Idealism by Richard von Coudenhove-Kallergi. He is the mind behind this unspoken but closely followed ideal. It’s called ~The Coudenhove-Kallergi plan.

      Here is another link that gives some insight into what and how this policy is to be achieved.

      Do some serious research.
