Its The Sun Wot Said It

From Open Europe's press summary today:

"The Sun reports that German Constitutional Court judges called the Lisbon Treaty an “illegal power grab”, in their judgement last week, as the Treaty takes away sovereignty from nation states in a number of areas, such as the right to set laws on defence, taxes, the police and education...............Open Europe is quoted as saying: “British MPs need to wake up — and demand the same powers.”

A leader in the Sun writes that the German court decision “even rejects the EU Parliament as a democratic body – pointing out that it does not even have a proper Opposition. This must surely put paid forever to the grandiose dream of a European superstate?”

If only, if only!
