I know, it’s not the sort of title one wants to read given not so distant history. But relax, it’s not THAT kind of war, not yet.

Andreas Vosskuhle, head of the German constitutional court, said politicians do not have the legal authority to sign away the birthright of the German people without their explicit consent.

“The sovereignty of the German state is inviolate and anchored in perpetuity by basic law. It may not be abandoned by the legislature (even with its powers to amend the constitution),” he said. “There is little leeway left for giving up core powers to the EU. If one wants to go beyond this limit – which might be politically legitimate and desirable – then Germany must give itself a new constitution. A referendum would be necessary. This cannot be done without the people,” he told newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine.

The extraordinary interview comes just days before the Bundestag votes on a bill to revamp the EU’s €440bn bail-out fund (EFSF), enabling it to purchase EMU bonds pre-emptively and recapitalise banks.

But the €440bn is not enough. €2 TRILLION is what they say will be required. The €440bn is chickenfeed. This is getting surreal. They may re-arrange the deck-chairs but their ship is going ONE way….

  1. “Andreas Vosskuhle, head of the German constitutional court, said politicians do not have the legal authority to sign away the birthright of the German people without their explicit consent.”
    Replace references to German politicians and Germany, with British politicians and Britain and you will see how far we have fallen.

  2. As someone has been saying for sometime … “ehem”.

    Andreas Vosskuhle, take a bow mein son. You’re quite right, German politicians have no right to give away that which does not belong to them, i.e. the sovereign power of the people to govern themselves.

    Compared to our ancient sovereignty German Basic Law isn’t out of nappies, yet our treasonous politicians cannot fling it aside fast enough while judges, half of them Marxist filth, bend the law out of shape to let it happen.

    “The sovereignty of the German state is inviolate and anchored in perpetuity by basic law. It may not be abandoned by the legislature (even with its powers to amend the constitution),” he said.

    And neither does Parliament have the right to affect in any way our sovereignty in any way, as someone has often pointed out …

    That seems to be about as good an argument for a written constitution as you’ll get.

    What use Common Law when any political quango can ignore it and there’s no independent judiciary, or any other effective body, to uphold it.

  4. Good-bye EU. It hasn’t been nice knowing you.

    Although they don’t realise it now, some will recognise the goose that layeth the golden egg has flown the coop.

    Therefore it’s fitting to set their dire situation to song:

    Alas, Auld Ireland suckled from your financial tits

    And now they’re dry she’ll have fits.

    They gotta drink from the poison well

    And tighten their betls for a spell.

    You’re comparing two different things, a system of law and whether or not the constitution is written down in one document.

    The British Constitution is written down, it’s just in various documents written over a period of time. Is is ignored? Of course it is.

    The (say) US Constitution brought the main principles of the British Constitution into one document yet that is ignored even as much as our’s is ignored.

    Now the common law in part forms a part of our constitution but it’s a system of law on its own and quite the most glorious way man has yet devised of managing his affairs. The direct comparison is the inferior and despotic Code Napoleon. I trust no explanation is required.

    The US has that famously written constitution and it also has the common law. As the British and American experiences show, they’re not mutually exclusive things at all.
