    And it'll take decades to change it back to whatever it was previously

    Yep... Republic of Afghanistan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Liberal democracy will be a new experience for them. I hope it lasts.

    I want a bill of rights enshrined and i want limitations on the executive.
    The Americans have no idea how lucky they are to have such a consitution whereas we do nothing when the Govt. spies on us
    These things do not require a US style constitution. They can changed through a reform that still stresses the continuity of our ancient constitution. The problem is that with the Whig ascendancy of post-1689 and particularly after the reform act of 1832 the constitution was forgotten
    in favour of the innovative, unconstitutional ideal of the power of parliament to an absolute degree that no Stuart would have dreamed of.

    Unfortunately Blair did not help here with his replacing of our ancient hereditary peerage with life peer pawns of PMs and of course the interference of foreign powers, particularly the EUroplot despotism in our affairs.

    What we do need is something to stress that the British are sovereign in Britain and that Brussels has no power over us.

    Aren't you a first generation migrant? I'm sorry if it isn't PC but I do find it a little impolite that you advocate the removal of your new homeland's sovereignty.

    The EU is despotism. It does little to protect our rights, in fact half of what it calls rights are PC idiocy, it say protects our "rights" to diversity officers and our "right" to have our free speech invaded if the EUroplot considers it hate speech. But it takes our sovereignty and forces its authoritarian laws on our people which is not worth even what you claim, if that is correct. What is even the point of talking of the rights of Englishmen if we are beholden for them to some nightmare, supranational entity that can never be democratic and is authoritarian, corrupt, very bureaucratic and politically correct/social democratic.

    You have to remember means and ends. The EUroplots means are not worth the ends.

    The EU is just another step in the march towards world federalism and a one world government.

    I'm afraid you might be correct but we have to fight the good fight even if we are likely to fail. I will defend English sovereignty, the ancient English society and fight the EUroplot with all my strength.

    Well you know how it is these days, immigrants don't come to be part of a country anymore, they come to change the country into whatever they feel it should be. Look at the illegals we have in the US, they raise Mexican flags in honor of the country that wouldn't do for them what we do. It's total bull****.
