POWER GRAB!

By ATWadmin On January 9th, 2009

The EU seeks to grab control of Britain’sS vital North Sea oil and gas supplies under emergency plans revealed for the first time in Brussels yesterday.

EU leaders are demanding control of British energy reserves to prevent power blackouts that have left millions of eastern Europeans without heat in Arctic weather due to the Russian gas blockade.  Euro-MPs are calling for the creation of a European gas reserve, made up of British and Dutch supplies, which member states can tap into in the event of any future shortage.  The transfer of ownership would be enacted under secret powers written into the controversial Lisbon Treaty. It gives Europe the legal power to take over individual states’ supplies to “ensure security of energy supply in the Union”.  Ultimate control over Britain’s vast natural gas and oil fields – by far the biggest resource within the EU – will fall to Brussels if the new treaty, which has already been ratified by Britain, is adopted throughout Europe.

Under Labour, and under the auspices of the Lisbon Treaty, this will assuredly happen.  We hand over our energy to keep Europe warm, even as we freeze. The sooner we get OUT of the EU tyranny the better.

  1. Maybe this scheme will save Britain from blackouts in a few years time! They have become a real possibility due to the scandalous delays in commissioning replacement nuclear capacity.

  2. The transfer of ownership would be enacted under secret powers written into the controversial Lisbon Treaty.

    As some people pointed out at the time. But it’s all illegal of course, along with the European Communities Act which took us into the damned thing in the first place.

    Thankfully, as long as we have hemp we can hang the traitors responsible.

  3. That’s a helluva lot of hemp needed, but I agree. Can we also rescind knighthoods posthumously: I’m thinking of Sir Edward and his motley crew of civil servants who led our country into this mess?

  4. enacted under secret powers written into the controversial Lisbon Treaty.

    Not very secret if you know about them.

  5. How do you write a secret power into a treaty? do you use lemon juice perhaps?

  6. "as long as we have hemp"

    I’d pretty much already guessed you did.

  7. Eh…says who?

    the UK Independence Party apparently says so.

    But does anyone else?

    A spokesman for the London office of the European Commission described the UKIP claim as “nonsense.” She added: “It is never going to happen and the British government also confirmed this.”

    I would think that if the EU tried something like this, that Britain would leave the EU within the month. Couldn’t happen. I think.

  8. You have to laugh at a blog consisting almost entirely of fake news stories calling itself "A Tangled Web".

  9. Comrad the state will decide what you need and when you need it

    each according to his needs
