The moment of shame

Even Douglas Hurd couldn't bear to look as he signed our country away

Douglas Hurd, yet another of the Tory wets that didn't support Maggie in her hour of need. He must now rue the day he signed away so much of this country's sovereignty, but maybe not!

And until that document and former and subsequent documents has signature amounting to a majority of this country, that and the previous and subsequent documents are worthless!

Don't forget Francis Maude.

The late Norris MchHirter & Rodney Atkinson laid information against Hurd and Maude on charges of treason in both the English & Scottish courts.

The information was factually and legally faultless, as you would expect.

The CPS's response (and the Procurator Fiscal's) was to make no response until Parliament had voted for the Maastricht treaty. Then they said that the Act made everything all right in retrospect..

Rather a pity, as hanging was still the penalty for treason at the time.
