#G341* – A picture of who governs Britain
This great pile of papers are copies of all the new laws that Brussels has imposed on us over the past six weeks.
My friend James Clappison, the brilliant MP for Hertsmere, plonked them on my desk on his way to the European Scrutiny Committee – which can neither delay nor veto any of it.
‘On the day we launch a campaign for an “in/out” EU referendum, it is appropriate that you should be able to physically see that most of the laws and regulations that govern us are imposed by commission officials – merely rubber stamped by those we actually voted for.
UPDATE: Someone disputes my suggestion that most of our laws and regulations are now imposed by commission officials.
Having asked the UK government the question, I know that they were unable, or unwilling, to provide an answer.
However, in response to a similar question tabled by a German law maker, the German government indicated somewhere in the region of 75% of German law and regulation emanated from Brussels. It is not unreasonable to assume a similar figure for the UK, too.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
