It gives Europe a US-style president.

An EU foreign minister will sideline national ministers.

France and the UK will lose their UN Security Council seats.

It gives the EU a single legal personality - like a country.

The treaty is self-amending.

It gives national parliaments a bigger say.

The Charter of Fundamental Rights will not affect UK law.

It's a major transfer of power to EU institutions

It surrenders dozens of national vetoes.

It makes it harder to block legislation.

The European Court gets new powers.

It continues a "drip-drip-drip" loss of national sovereignty.

Some countries will lose their commissioner.

I'd be VERY surprised if this passes.


If it does, the EU is finished as an entity.

Setting the stage for the antichrist and the Revived Roman Empire?
"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances there is a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air--however slight--lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
--Justice William O. Douglas

"There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first is excellent, the second good, and the third useless."
--Niccolò Machiavelli

"I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep"
--Robert Frost
