Is Britain Slowly Disappearing?

And I don’t mean as a result of its multi-culti mentality that panders to Muslims in particular; rather it’s as a result of Britain giving up its sovereignty to the European Union. Peter Hitchens sounds the warning and hopes he’s not too late:

This is too frightening and too important to ignore any longer.

If we don’t want to become a neglected outstation of the European Superstate, stripped of our nationhood, powerless to decide who lives here, controlled by laws we don’t make and can’t change, ruled by a government we cannot throw out, we have rather a short time in which to do something about it.

You may think none of this matters to you, but the trouble is that it does, whether you think so or not.

The European Union is interested in you, your liberty and your money, even if you don’t care about it.

Its decisions affect your life, even if you don’t realise they do.

When I point out that local councils are changing rubbish collections because of EU laws, people don’t believe me.

They rightly think it ridiculous that such things should be affected by what is supposed to be a Free Trade partnership. But they are.

A huge number of our laws have been drawn up in Brussels and hurried through Parliament without anybody really understanding what they were doing.

A lot of us still don’t even grasp why it is that we can no longer have nice blue British passports.

They also don’t grasp why they have to queue for ages to get back into the country after a holiday.

They aren’t paying attention. That passport you have isn’t British. It’s European. It gives you no more right to enter this country than if you were a Lithuanian.

The border you are crossing is the border of the EU, not Britain. If the Government set up a special channel for UK passport holders it would be breaking EU law. There is no longer any such thing as a British passport.

This has another grim meaning. We cannot control two-thirds of the immigration now revolutionising this country because it comes from EU states.

British people have a way of ignoring the Continent then finding out just in time that what happens there matters – Dunkirk being the most recent example of this complacent folly. We probably won’t get another Dunkirk to warn us.

By the time it is clear to everyone what has happened, it will be far too late.

Read all of it.
