We waz lied to!

Sovereignty and the European Communities is an explosive document that was written in 1972 during the final stages of the negotiations for Britain’s entry into what was then termed the ‘Common Market’, but it was never published.  It has been kept secret from the British public until it came to light under the 30- year rule.

At that time, the ‘anti-marketeers’, as they were then called, had made some impact with the claim that membership would involve an unacceptable loss of sovereignty.

This claim clearly had a significant impact on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, sufficient at least for anonymous civil servants to write a detailed briefing on the sovereignty issue. This confidential document was never published and, for the last thirty years has lain in an FCO file, guarded by official secrecy. Only recently was its contents laid bare.

The document is massively important for many reasons, not least because it demonstrates that the FCO had a very clear idea of the repercussions of joining the ‘Community’, as it put it. It knew that it would involve a major loss of sovereignty and, in due course, an end to parliamentary democracy. Despite knowing this, it offered the advice that HMG and “all political parties” should not “exacerbate public concern by attributing unpopular measures or unfavourable economic developments to the remote and unmanageable workings of the Community”.

Had this document been published during the debate which led up to Britain joining the EEC, it is hard to believe that public opinion would have been unaffected. In fact, so great would probably have been the outrage that it is hardly likely that any political party could have sanctioned our entry. It is a measure of the deceit perpetrated by the then government, therefore, that its findings were kept confidential.

If the magnitude of the concepts explored by this document are even now fully understood, it is hard to see how any rational person could wish for the United Kingdom to remain a member of what has now become the European Union. For that reason, the paper has been reproduced here, together with a running commentary which brings home the stunning duplicity of the FCO and the terrible deceit that has been perpetrated on the British peoples.

The object of the paper was, according to the FCO author(s), “to examine the implications of entry into the European Communities for British Sovereignty”. This was a subject, it was felt, that aroused “widespread if somewhat vague public concern and which could become the central political issue in the national debate on entry to the Community”.

Nevertheless, the paper did not seek to provide a comprehensive philosophical analysis of sovereignty but set out to clarify the various ways in which the term was then commonly used. The authors also sought to “identify the relevant changes which will be involved in joining the European Communities” and suggested “a number of conclusions and implications for policy”.

The paper acknowledges three things: (i) that the EEC is an inherently bureaucratic organisation and, by implication, is not democratic; (ii) that it is not “an association for negotiation” and therefore is not a “cooperative venture of independent equal sovereign units”; and (iii) involves a loss of sovereignty, which will intensify as attempts are made to make democratise the “Community”.

The paper confirms that although the then Common Market is a trading bloc, its eventual aims are: “An effectively harmonised economic, fiscal and monetary system and a fairly closely coordinated and consistent foreign and defence policy,” and adds that sovereignty “…would indeed be transferred to the Community”.

Following our entry into the then EEC, the authors insist that ‘public concern’ must not be exacerbated by ‘attributing unpopular measures or unfavourable economic developments to the remote and unmanageable workings of the Community’ – in other words, an active, deliberate encouragement to conceal the bad news. The authors are aware that some of the Community activities may be unpopular, but they are to be “spun” in a Community context to make them more acceptable.

It is recognised that ‘the transfer of major executive responsibilities to the bureaucratic Commission in Brussels will exacerbate popular feeling of alienation from government’ and calls for ‘strengthened local and regional democratic processes within the member states’ to counter such populist feelings.

The paper recognises “that the more the Community considered is developed as an effective wide-ranging and democratically controlled organisation the more Parliamentary sovereignty will be eroded and the less important external state sovereignty will become”.

The conclusion of this paper is ‘the blurring of distinctions between domestic political and foreign affairs, to the relatively greater political responsibility of the bureaucracy of the Community and the lack of effective democratic control’.

And to think we were told by the Heath government that entry to the “Common Market” would involve “no essential loss of sovereignty”. Liars they are all.

The full text of the paper is available here (it is a large document and takes time to load) and the analysis by Richard North is available on Europrobe.

  1. The damming evidence from FCO30/1048 has been in front of the public for many years now. Many people when first confronted with the information were in disbelief that their elected “Leaders” from all the establishment parties meaning all the old parties could have lied to and acted in a manner that can only be viewed as treacherous. To continue with the deception for decades, conspiring together to continue with the lies was simply too much for many to believe and some preferred to put it down to conspiracy theorists or to simply push it to one side and forget about it.
    Soon the public their short memory guided by the MSM returned to taking sides with one party or another, forgetting that in essence they were all the same party.
    Farage’s well worn words “You can’t put a fag paper between them” said it all and UKIP with a few who understood the immensity of that great betrayal came along and did their best to write the wrong.
    Alas here we are 40 years on and the ever gullible public which really should have learnt the lesson by now is praising a government that is about to betray them once again.

  2. We were lied to, of course we were. The perps knew about the deception.
    The Communists in Brussels and Strasbourg were well aware of their stealth in which the United States of Europe would come into being.
    One only had to visit France to see publications and posters regarding Monet and Schuman, the original archiutects of this grand deception. The whole idea was to have a demilitairsed Germany, with the French being extremely nervous of a mighty Germany ready to strike up a 4th Reich. One only needs to understand the number of top Nazis within the Bonn government, all of whom literally got away with murder. The British and american governments and their respective establishments did all they could to hide the facts. The USA wanted the UK to become a part of EU, in sufferance to the mighty German induistrial and political machinery.
    Not for nothing did German industrial output overtake British industry by 1960. Openly aided and abetted by various British governments, the unions and industry leaders who were bloody well useless in organising a p***up at the local brewery.
    Today, we are facing the results of this madness, which is why, I have always been against the idea of a political union of all of Europe. One size does not fit all and I honestly believe that the EU is doomed, until a time that the mighty German empire will no longer be able to keep other nations shackled.

  3. It’s the mother of all dossiers. Its contents point to a Machiavellian machine operating at the heart of Government. The FCO of course was and still is inhabited by an Oxbridge cabal – anti British, management of decline and left wing. The likes of Philby, Burgess, McClean Blunt and others the epitome of this attitude and loathing of their country. We were lied to and will continue to be lied to – the guardians of the people the so-called free press failing in their duty to expose these lies. Just remember how difficult it was for the Daily Telegraph to nail MPs expenses.

    The Foreign Office Document FCO30/1048 would be more than enough evidence in a court of law to damn the whole UK cabinet, senior civil servants in the Foreign Office and the Attorny General Office for High Treason.

    The sentence for high treason in 1972 was death and any assets chattels are seized and confiscated by the Crown. Many of the culprits are dead now, but some are still alive and in the Lords. Heath is in Salisbury Cathedral. We could start by flushing his remains in the nearest sewer after his corpse has hung on a spike from Traitors Gate for a month.

    PS The objective of the EEC was also published for all European governments to peruse, in the Werner Report (1969/70) now re-published on the EU website.
    search “The Strange Case of the Werner Report.”
    “The Werner plan could lead to, “the ultimate creation of a European federal state, with a single currency. All the basic instruments of national economic management (fiscal, monetary, incomes and regional policies) would ultimately be handed over to the central federal authorities. The Werner report suggests that this radical transformation of present Communities should be accomplished within a decade”. (PRO/FCO 30/789)

  5. It is never too late.
    We could start by digging up the filthy rotting corpse of Heath and burning it in public on say 5th November.
    Certainly we are still at an early stage of what may come to be called The Great Awakening whence society will polarise between Brexiteers ( patriots, freedom lovers; proud of our Nation State) and Remainiac Soubryettes ( traitor dogs unfit to have citizenship )who we may have to encourage to leave this sceptered isle to seek sanctuary in Malta, Luxembourg, or the Congo.
    The evil bbc continues with its drip drip arguments to remain as EU serfs but it is not working.
    We need to know who our true friends are and I suggest the following – Almost all Poles, Hungarians, and most Czechs and Slovaks. Geert Wilders and voters, and of course Joan of Arc incarnate Marine le Pen. The Northern League in Italy and the Freedom Party in Austria. And however strange a bedfellow but Russia too will be on our side. Plenty of Danes and Norse too as they are increasingly sceptical esp due to the influx of invaders by stealth. Probably Serbs and Montenegrins with their natural fear and disdain of the Turks.
    We must know who are the enemies and one Anthony Bliar comes to mind along with many in both Houses of Parliament.

    • Point of Information
      Just to clarify I do know that Norway, Montenegro, and Serbia are not in the EU. My point is to work with all groups who want to see this disgusting marxist white genocide agenda EU smashed to pieces and sensible European Nation States replace it. We face years of blood sweat and tears once again but with honest toil and the clarion of truth on our side we will be victorious. And this will lead to a drainage of the Westmonster swamp and the end of the present power elites.

    • The monstrous liars and traitors who have been running this country for their EU masters for decades and STILL persist in wanting to drag us back into it need to be exposed, humiliated, demonised and punished.

      I wish that the lot of them could be exiled for life from the UK and never allowed to say one word about any domestic political issue ever again. Major and Blair should be at the top of that list.
      Exhuming Heath and depositing what’s left of the traitorous, lying scumbag in a cesspit might just signal to the rest how we feel about their treachery and warn them to shut up.

      We need to eliminate Remainiacs from the political scene by constantly reminding voters of the lies they told and keep on telling.

    • CK, Absolutely I can see a time when the V4 will make some kind of alliance with Russia out of necessity.
      Don’t forget in our scepter’d isle the Sikh community, who have been fighting Islam for longer than we have.
      Do watch, if you have time, Flyers link on Today’s Papers about the Masons – it explains a lot, although you probably know it already, I was always something of a sceptic.

  6. Yes, thank you Debbie, for this very important piece of work. If we could be lied to then, in pursuit of the Globalist goal, just think about now…..

    “…should not “exacerbate public concern by attributing unpopular measures or unfavourable economic developments to the remote and unmanageable workings of the Community”.

    HS2 anyone? Post Office privatisation, green levies, splitting the railways… ad infinitum.

  8. Thank you Debbie, It will be interesting to read the full text. Maybe if it had been released earlier Heath and his chums would have felt the rope around their necks. As we now know they deserved it for other reasons too.
