THE DEMOCRATIC VISION FOR EUROPE
Why is Europe in a crisis following the No of French, Dutch Irish referendums? In 1963 Robert Schuman, the initiator of today's European Union, warned that political counterfeiters were already undermining the new European democracy. How?

Robert Schuman traveled to Yugoslavia in
1934 and surveyed the dangerous situation and tensions
then developing. He warned the French Government and French Foreign Minister
Louis Barthou of plots against King Alexander
on a planned visit to France. Barthou took no notice and
was assassinated too at Marseilles. Schuman subsequently
wrote an article describing principles how Yugoslav
unity could be maintained for peace and prosperity for
all. These principles were those that he successfully
introduced to bring peace to France, Germany and other
States of the European Community.
Mrs Gina Miller brought a
case to the UK Supreme Court to stop the UK government
leaving the EU without full consultation with the
Parliament. The submissions of all parties in the High
Court and Supreme Court are reproduced in this book,
together with the judgements of both courts.
Europe in a democratic Crisis.
UK's referendum vote to LEAVE the European Union caught the Cameron Government, many Britons and the EU HQ in Brussels by surprise. Why? Lack of preparedness for the hugely complex task. The real cause? The dissembling of politicians. The early treaties were debated for adherence to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in the Council of Europe.
In 1975 the UK Referendum gave two thirds majority support for membership of the European Communities.
Then politicians ignored the articles on open governance and created new treaties, either without referendums or against votes rejecting the treaties. Politicians on both sides of the Channel colluded in this Democratic Deficit and Deceit. Under de Gaulle's corrupt rules, spending on Agriculture (CAP) reached 70% of the entire budget for Meat Mountains and Wine Lakes.
UK politicians had many times promised a referendum on each of the subsequent European treaties but never allowed one. Each European treaty altered the British Constitutional order. Then instead of having a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty PM Cameron called a referendum on Article 50 of a treaty no one had ever agreed to.
Illegal and immoral!
Everyone knew the treaty was practically identical to the 2004 Constitutional treaty that was rejected in French and Dutch referendums. All politicians acknowledged it would have been roundly rejected in a UK Referendum -- if its citizens had been allowed to vote then! Other countries too. Instead the articles of the rejected Constitutional Treaty were imported into the existing treaty without asking the voters and against their wishes.
This threatens the European democratic order. The Lisbon treaty is undemocratic, even anti-democratic, but politicians in the Councils use it to control the democracies of all Member States.
Now politicians have to confront the consequences.
Will this deceitful and constitutionally dangerous Brexit threaten the unity of the United Kingdom? Will Scotland leave the UK? What will happen to Northern Ireland and Wales?
Will the shock of losing EU's second power shatter the EU? Brexit could act as an earthquake for Brussels where its politicians have not shaken off their neo-Gaullist attitudes that denied full Human Rights supervision of treaties, and prevented proper Europe-wide, one person, one vote elections.
Behind closed doors, politicians still hold Councils on tax, budget spending, agriculture and fisheries etc that are contrary even to treaties themselves. Taxation requires proper representation and accountability.
The honest alternative.
These books highlight a quite different potential. A Golden Age for Britain, for Europe and for the Planet! Brexit provides an extraordinary opportunity to relaunch Europe based on its founding principles. These brought the squabbling States of Europe their first real peace in more than 2000 years.
A Golden Age for global trade, democracy and public happiness is possible. Will it happen? All this depends on starting discussions on the right basis, an ethical and moral one. This book shows how. Written by the Editor of the Schuman Project who has researched the origin, purpose and future of Europe's peace miracle, this book provides answers for success.
NEW BOOKS ON
Robert Schuman was the first French Deputy to be arrested by the Nazis. In August 1942, he escaped from Germany and brought to the Free French Zone important documents exposing the parlous and vulnerable state of the German economy. He also brought probably the first information about the systematic Nazi destruction of the Jews. He spoke to large audiences about the inevitable Victory of the Allies. After the war as Prime Minister and Foreign Minister he was instrumental in bringing in the European law of Human Rights that would arrest loss of liberties that could lead to another Dachau.

In 1949 the Soviet Union exploded its own Atomic Bomb. A few months later Robert Schuman introduced a Community Plan to make 'war not only unthinkable but materially impossible.' How were these principles applied in the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) to prevent a nuclear arms race in Europe? How can Euratom, the innovative non-proliferation treaty of Europe, be applied to make the world free of the nuclear threat?

On 20 July1948, Schuman's first government with Georges Bidault as Foreign Minister, proposed to Foreign Ministers of the Brussels Pact States meeting in the Hague the creation of a European Assembly (later the Council of Europe) and a Customs Union (later the European Community) as a means to make war impossible and found lay Europe's democratic foundations for peace and prosperity.
On 5 May1949, at St James's Palace, London, Schuman announced to all Foreign Ministers of the Council of Europe and all foreign ambassadors present that European cooperation would soon lead to a Community, 'a vast and enduring SUPRANATIONAL union'. It would ensure the peace and independence of democratic countries by mutual support and agreement. It would encourage positive patriotism.
On 16 May 1949 in Strasbourg, he explained that this 'great experiment' would fulfil the dream of Europeans over ten centuries for 'enduring peace'. A 'European Community' would reconcile nations in a 'supranational association'. He concluded: 'This new policy probably constitutes the supreme attempt to save our continent and preserve the world from suicide.'
He announced the COMING CENTURY OF SUPRANATIONAL COMMUNITIES: Extracts of speech.
On 9 May1950, he presented the SCHUMAN PROPOSAL, after French Government's favourable Decision, to Parliament. Then he made a suprise announcement on the radio and explained it before the world's press. It invited all European countries to join in the 'gathering of European nations' by creating a supranational European Community based on a democratic European rule of law at first in the coal and steel sector. It would make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible, and reconcile, unify, develop, transform Europe and serve its populations and world development in prosperity and peace.
On 18 April 1951: Six founder Member States, after signing the Treaty that had been voted in all their Parliaments, pledged that this, the 'first supranational institution,' laid the TRUE FOUNDATION for an organised Europe 'open to all states that are free to decide'.
