Ed West highlights this here.
Nessa Childers, an Irish Labour MEP for the province of Leinster and granddaughter of The Riddle of the Sands author Erskine Childers:
"With the passing into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU now has increased powers to legislate when there is a threat to public health in Europe. Will the Commission submit proposals to Parliament to address this growing threat to the mental health of European citizens?"
The, what one may call, 'spine-chilling' words are: 'With the passing into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU now has increased powers to legislate....' when considering Articles 3,4 and 6 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
It is utterly amazing - dare one say incredible - that the British public do not know, or seem to realize, exactly how much potential for almost total power over our lives the EU possess.
But then the two sources of that information - politicians and media - each have their own agendas for not saying, or writing, anything!
