A new report has revealed Britain is “obliged” to accept laws and judgments pushed onto it by the European Union.
The 96-page-paper, which was quietly published by ministers ahead of June’s crucial EU referendum, comes before the start of the official campaign.
And the document – which highlights Brussels’ stranglehold over Britain – will have Eurocrats campaigning for a remain vote worried
Justice minister Dominic Raab warned the report proves a ruling made by European fat cats “trumps the British Supreme Court”.
“And the report concedes that EU law overrides UK law, and the European Court trumps the British Supreme Court.
“Whether you’re on the left or right, the British people must wrest back democratic control on 23rd June.”
“The National Courts share responsibility for enforcing EU law with the European Court of Justice. Any person or company has a right to take the UK Government (or in some cases another person or company) to a UK court for failure to comply with EU law.
“Where a domestic court finds that someone has breached EU law, it will take the necessary steps to ensure EU law is given effect, which may include disapplying national legislation that conflicts with it. In some cases, it can also award damages to the person or company who has lost out.”
