The hypocrisy of the 10th anniversary of the Lisbon Treaty

At the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday 18 December, Claire Fox discusses the EU’s commemorations of the 10th Anniversary of the Lisbon Treaty. She reflects on the events in the chamber and the self-congratulatory tone that many of the speeches took in relation to the anniversary, as well as the fact that many nations rejected the treaty, in its earlier guise as the EU Constitution, via referendums only to have it implemented through the back door. Claire praises the fact that finally, on the year of the 10th anniversary, the EU will have a referendum they are forced to respect – Brexit!
