You’re correct Lynne, the Treaty Of Lisbon was indeed ratified by the elected UK parliament. As Burneside knows, Gordon Brown was unable to attend the public signing due to having to attend a select committee meeting in the House of Commons - which I would have thought that Burneside and his ilk would think takes priority, given that the sovereignty of the UK parliament is so important.

I thought it went to the UK parliament. Which is our sovereign decision making authority.

It will all be decided on the 19th at 10am

So is this happening or not, I sincerely hope not.

Ah yes, those treaties like Maastricht and Lisbon which took us ever deeper into the EU without anyone being asked if we wanted that.  I clearly remember Gordon Brown avoided putting his name to the Lisbon document in the grand signing ceremony with other EU leaders, instead he did it separately all by himself, as though he was somehow ashamed to be seen signing it at all.

Just like all those principled Tories did (not!) who rebelled against John Major's government? Like Bernard Jenkin for example In John Major 's 1992–1997 government, Jenkin was one of the " Maastricht Rebels " who defied the party whip to oppose the Maastricht Treaty .

If she feels so principled about things, then she can stand as an independent at the next election and fund it all herself.

How dare she want to uphold the principle of the UK parliament being sovereign!

I sincerely hope Sarah Wollaston gets deselected from her Totnes seat before the next election.  She was happy for the Tories to fund and organise her campaign to win the seat, then turned her back on the party last night.
