The Democrat...on line

The Democrat is published bi-monthly in hard copy/paper and contains material which analyses the implications of European Union, common policies, the single currency, a Common Foreign and Security Policy and EU Army, common taxation and judicial systems for Britain. This includes the EU institutions, policies, directives, regulations and drive to an EU superstate with an EU state Constitution (aka Lisbon Treaty). There are articles giving the alternative to EU membership which requires Britain to regain the right to self-determination, national independence and democracy.
