EU draws up plans behind Britain’s back as voters move toward Brexit
4/27/16 – (Express) Plans for a United States of Europe have been drawn up in a bid to give Brussels bureaucrats an iron grip over the continent, it has been revealed.
In a direct challenge to David Cameron’s claims of British sovereignty, Germany, France, Italy and Luxembourg signed a document last September in Rome calling for the creation of a “general union of states”, which has only now come to light.The further integrated union would not only take a central hold over economic and fiscal matters, as well as internal markets, but would also include social and cultural affairs and foreign, security and defence policy of member states.
The paper says “concrete” proposals” to enhance European Union (EU) integration will be drawn up at a meeting in Luxembourg in May, just a month before the UK holds its In/Out referendum on June 23.
The news will come as a blow to pro-EU Prime Minister David Cameron who has sought to reassure voters Britain will not be part of a European superstate.
Chris Grayling, leader of the Commons, who was sent the document, told the Sunday Times, “We will have very little say in what happens.
“We have to decide whether we want to be an independent country or whether we want to be caught up in what is heading fast towards being a United States of Europe.”
