Daniel Hannan in a recent blogpost on the Telegraph writes:
“People often ask what kind of new deal with the EU would satisfy me. The short answer is, one which restores the supremacy of our law. In practical terms, this would mean an amendment to Sections 2 and 3 of the 1972 European Communities Act to provide that, from now on, EU Directives and Regulations should be treated as advisory pending a specific implementing decision by Parliament. It really is that simple.”
The European Commission, in a letter dated 10th November 2010 to Stefano Manservisi, Director General, DG Home, wrote:
“..it must be recalled that Union Law prevails over national law, including national constitutional law.”
Not really that simple then, it would appear.
