So roars the BBC’s headline propaganda. An accurate headline would say: “EU imposes vehicle speed limiters”.
No manifesto, no parliamentary debate, no national debate, no white paper, no ministerial interviews. Just another law – yet another law – decided mainly by foreigners and emailed from a foreign land. Well done Remainers, you really are as dumb as mud. So what can we do if we don’t like it? What can we do if we don’t like the principle? Nothing of course.
MEP’s can not create, amend, or reject proposals. They can act as a method of slowing them, requesting changes or rethinks of proposed policies, but if the other (unelected) parts of the EU want to force through a proposal they can just keep pushing it until it gets through in the knowledge that elected MEP’s will not have the power to propose future updates, changes, or abolition of legislation.
The European Commission only has to win once and it can never be repealed without the European Commission wishing it so.
