We have heard from many people who will join the February 27 mass lobby, calling on their MPs to keep their pledge to hold a referendum on the EU's Lisbon Treaty.
Global Vision Director Ruth Lea, who will speak in the afternoon at a public meeting in Westminster Central Hall, sums up lobby sentiments -
“The Lisbon Treaty, which is currently being rammed through the Commons, represents an awesome transfer of power from EU Member States national parliaments to the centralised institutions of the EU. It is, therefore, of huge significance for Britain. This is despite the Government’s so-called ‘red lines’ on the Charter of Fundamental Rights, Foreign and Defence Policy and Police and Judicial Cooperation in Criminal Matters which, the Government claims, will preserve Britain’s national interests. The truth is that the “red lines” are unlikely to be effective in protecting the UK from EU intervention.”
