This is a very big constitutional issue and has been left unanswered as long as I have studied it.
Is Parliament's sovereignty supreme, or is Brussels supreme?
If EU Law takes precedent over national law, how did this happen without any general public understanding, consultation, debate or (dare I say it) plebiscite?
I am not a Eurosceptic. I am a democrat to my core. If the people want the EU and express this in a plebiscite, then so be it. I speak several European langauges. I love Europe.
But I cannot accept that English Common Law, Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights and so forth can just fade away silently and the Napoleonic Code appear in their place, without any explanation as to why or how this has happened – or been allowed to happen.
