Great Britain Disappeared and No One Noticed

England died today. The England of freemen, the England of Magna Carta, the England that has stood against European domination for centuries, that would "defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender..." sadly, quietly, and without so much as a "by your leave" became "a satellite state of the Greater European Empire, ruled by a supreme government in Brussels" with the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty. The entirety of Great Britain - England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland - gone.
From today, as the Lisbon treaty comes into force, we are no longer masters in our own house. Our prime minister, as a member of the European Council, is obligated under this new treaty to promote the aims and objectives of the European Union, over and above those of the UK, and is bound by the rules of the Union.

Of course, this will make no immediate difference. It simply renders de jure what has been de facto for several decades, but the coming into force of the treaty marks an important symbolic turning point. We are no longer an independent country, de jure. Our prime minister and his government are now working for an alien government, based in Brussels.

In effect, that makes us an occupied country, but the alien creatures that rule us most directly are our own. We are "occupied" by our own political élites, who owe their allegiance not to the people who elected them and pay their wages, but to a more powerful, self-appointed élite in Brussels. They are sock-puppets, with less power than the Vichy government of the 1940s.

No longer will we have general elections to select our own government. All that is afforded to us now is the "privilege" of choosing an electoral college, comprised of people we still call Members of Parliament, who then go on to select the British member of the European Council, a man who is there not to represent us or serve our interests, but to participate in our supreme government.
What the Caesars and a Kaiser could not do, what kings of France and Spain could not do, what Hitler could not do, hundreds of faceless bureaucrats were able to do. England was conquered for the first time since Hastings. But, today was different. England died today.

I fear that this global socialist government situation is exactly what our president wants for all of us. Don
