Clarify whether English Common Law is superior the EU’s Napoleonic Code

Under English Common Law, the role of the state is simply reduced to being able to tell you what you cannot do – murder, rape, theft, assault and so on.

Under the Napoleonic Code, the role of the state is entirely different: it tells you what you can do and everything else is forbidden.

As I understand it, the passing of the Lisbon Treaty means the the Napoleonic Code is therefore in force in the United Kingdom.

Repeal the 1972 European Communities Act

This nation has never officially sanctioned the political supremacy of the EU, which has resulted in thousands of statutory instruments imposing unsolicited and intrusive Directives and Regulations. 

I wish to enjoy the protection of the Common Law, not be subject to Corpus Juris and a limited list of "rights" which may be removed if it is in the interests of "the Union" to do so.

Europe

Come out of the European Union and do the same as Norway, pay so much each year to trade with Europe but are not ruled by a faceless load of idiots, we should stop obeying each and every rule that comes from Brussels, we should make our own laws, stop accepting the dregs of society from other countries and stop paying the ridiculous salaries to 'European MP's'

We should also stop obeying the Human Rights Bill, we managed very well before and will do so again


Europe has done more to ruin Great Britain than the Germans did in two World Wars.

BRING IN THE EEC CRIMINAL OFFENCE OF PERSONAL FAVOURING

THE EEC IMPOSED ON SEVERAL EU CANDIDATE MEMBERS THAT COUNTRIES WITH HIGH LEVEL OF CORRUPTION IN THEIR JUDICIARY HAD TO CREATE A PENAL CODE FIGURE OF PERSONAL FAVOURING

IN A NUTSHELL THE CRIMINAL OFFENCE IS WHEN A JUDICIARY AUTHORITY MAKES A JUDGMENT OR AN ORDER WHICH IS SCANDALOUS AND NORMALLY THIS PROCEEDS FROM GRANTING A SPECIAL FAVOUR TO ONE OF THE PARTIES – NORMALLY THE PARTY THAT WOULD BE A DEFENDANT

BY BRINGING IN THE CRIMINAL OFFENCE JUDGES WOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE DOING FAVOURS AND THE COURTS WOULD BE RETURNED TO THE PEOPLE AND NOT THE SELECT FEW

Repeal All European Union Treaties

All European Treaties (Rome, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Lisbon etc……). These treaties have removed our democratic sovereignty over a range of areas and transferred it to an unelected bureaucracy in Brussels thus limited our right of national self determination and thus our civil liberties. Eliminating these treaties would restore the supremacy of parliament and restore these rights and liberties.

Bill of rights. Allow the people to vote on their laws.

Rather than relying on a few gentlemen and ladies, who have never lived on the poverty line, the vote to pass laws that involve us all. The votes should be made public, We all have to live in the UK, and abide by the laws of the land, so we should be given a say.

This website is a wonderful idea, a chance for us to have a say. But i feel that it should be made a regular day to day thing. Part of our lives, children should be raised to believe that 1 day their voices will be heard too.

Leave the EU – that should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation

Leaving the EU should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation which this site was set up to do. Most of the ideas proposed on this site would be impossible to repeal because the are binding on our government. Euro diktat has precedence over UK law in many cases.

Most of our legislation is now directed from Brussels. The government you elect here in the UK can rarely do anything about laws, regulations and bureacracy from the EU. Most of these things have been created after lobbying by special interest groups or big business. They have the deep pockets to employ specialist PR agents who – at best – wine and dine the EU bureacrats.

Even where the legislations sounds to be positive, it is usually at enormous cost.

Every year, thousands of new rules and regulations are published producing a monumental nuisance for almost every organisation in the country.

Some we know are EU-inspired, but other laws are less well known as EU in origin. In fact most of our legislation comes from over the water.  But the majority of EU laws and regulations are expensive to implement and monitor, and ineffective in not producing the intended effect; some are harmful, and of course some actually useful.

Benefits paid out abroad

Stop allowing benefits to be paid to people that are not even living in this country.

Example:

"This week, ministers admitted that more than £1million a month in child benefit is going to the families of youngsters who live in the former Soviet bloc countries. It was the first time that Labour has acknowledged that the money – funded by British taxpayers – is being paid abroad. The revelation triggered a political controversy over the fact that the Government is paying for the upbringing of children who do not live in Britain and who may never even have set foot in the country. It also underlines how our generous benefits system acts as a powerful draw for migrant workers. Moreover, this largesse is open to widespread abuse. The Trajkowski family qualify for child benefit because their father works in London as a builder and pays his taxes. Like all migrants from the eight East European countries which joined the EU in 2004, he won the right to claim state benefits after working here for a year."

Abolish the 3 year wait for EU citizens & UK residents to pay home student fees

My husband (an EU citizen) accompanied me on my 2-year job posting abroad to South Africa, looking after my young daughter. We are now back living in the UK and my husband wants to do a PGCE, but cannot afford to because he would have to pay overseas fees rather than home student fees – a difference of around £10,000. Under current rules, we have to wait 3 YEARS until he will become eligible for home student fees. We have already been waiting 1 year and he is taking whatever low-paid teaching assistant / TEFL jobs he can get. 2 more years to go. It's nuts, especially when there is a shortage of good teachers, that people are forced to wait out 3 years in low paid work waiting for the chance to improve their skills.

Lifetime voting for Expats in Europe

Expats who live in the EU should be allowed to vote in General Electiond, EU Elections and Referenda during their lifetime. At present, that right is lost after 15 tears abroad. With satellite TV, it is easy to stay abreast of current affairs in Europe and the UK in particular.

Racing to the wrong divorce courts in Europe: Brussels II

The Brussels II regulation had the aim of helping couples from different parts of Europe cope with divorce. Unfortunately the way it was drafted meant that instead of finding the most appropriate forum for divorce, where the couple lived, owned property, raised children, the partner who got to a court in Europe first could hold the other to ransom by dragging them through inappropriate court proceedings at great expense in foreign courts.

This regulation has caused considerable hardship for couples. The weaker, poorer partner, usually the wife, is put under great strain before she can get proper relief in a court which is best suited to hear the case.

The regulation must be revised or the UK should withdraw from its regime.

European Union

Get us out of the European Union which was sold to us in 1973 by Edward Heath. He told us it was the European Economic Community. it was a lie. The Treaty of Rome which is what we actually signed up to talks solely about ultimate political union which is very nearly what we have today.
