EUThe Daily Telegraph reports on the launch of the Civitas report The Demise of the Free State: Why British democracy and the EU don’t mix.

According to the newspaper, the report’s author Dr Green suggests that the European Communities Act 1972 should be amended to to enshrine the superiority of the Supreme Court over the Court of Justice of the EU in law.

Civitas explains:

“As the UK fast approaches a crossroads in its relationship with the European Union, Civitas director David G Green contrasts the ideals that have evolved in the British political system over many centuries – best described as those of liberal civilisation, or what he calls a ‘free state’ – with the unaccountable structures of the EU which seem designed to insulate decision-makers from popular opinion”.
