Who really runs Britain
The European Union's highest court yesterday banned many British employees from choosing how much overtime they want to work.
The ruling by the European Court of Justice struck down legal guidelines issued by the Department of Trade and Industry, which tried to give British employees the freedom to choose their hours of work, within the constraints of the EU's working time directive.
Thousands of workers in many industries will no longer be able to choose to work overtime that would stretch their working day to more than 13 hours, or to work through all seven days of the week.
The Tony and Gordon show is just an amusing distraction, the real seat of power is elsewhere.
As Article 37 of the 39 Articles, see above, has it:
THE Queen's Majesty hath the chief power in this realm of England and other her dominions, unto whom the chief government of all estates of this realm, whether they be ecclesiastical or civil, in all causes doth appertain, and is not nor ought to be subject to any foreign jurisdiction.
