America may soon lose its most trusted ally in the world. Britain is on the verge of surrendering to the European Union. It is an historic moment that should be showing up in blaring headlines --- but it is slipping in so quietly that only a few people have talked about it: Margaret Thatcher, George Will, Mark Steyn, Peter Hitchens. There are books with about it with titles like The Rape of the Constitution, The Abolition of Britain, and America Alone. Those warnings should be taken seriously, but Washington seems to live in blissful ignorance.
In a matter of months Britain will hold a referendum on the EU Constitution. If that Constitution passes, the Anglo-American alliance will soon be history. Along with it will go the common defense of a democratic West. (See my previous AT essay on "The Rise of EuroNationalism,")
To understand Britains looming precipitous decline, imagine Hillary Clinton being elected President of the US, backed by a two-thirds Democrat majority in Congress. Add the highest level of Political Correctness ever seen, including criminal penalties for anybody who speaks words that offend victim groups. Mix in a culture of government dependency for every single person. Give Dan Rather and CBS a monopoly over the broadcast media, and let Jimmy Carter run our foreign policy. Finally, let Mexico and Canada decree half of our domestic regulations. That is the mind-boggling situation Britain faces today. The EU Constitution will lock in Britains decline and subordination to the European Union.

This has concerned me since they built that damned CHUNNEL.
The French will soon begin ploughing FLANDERS FIELD.
