I will repeat then, Sir, that it is not this treaty, it is the Earl of Shelburne alone whom the movers of this question are desirous to wound. This is the object which has raised this storm of faction; this is the aim of the unnatural coalition to which I have alluded.

A critical feature of the EU(European Union) in general and EMU in particular is that there is no legitimate way for a member to withdraw... The American experience with the secession of the South may contain some lessons about the danger of a treaty or constitution that has no exits.
However, the treaty of Sevres was never ratified, As Kay Holloway wrote, the failure of the signatories to bring the treaty into force ‘resulted in the abandonment of thousands of defenceless peoples Armenians and Greeks to the fury of their persecutors, by engendering subsequent holocausts in which the few survivors of the 1915 Armenian massacres perished.” The treaty of Sevres was replaced by the treaty of Lausanne of 24 July 1923 that included a ‘Declaration of Amnesty’ for all offences committed between 1 August 1914 and 20 November 1922.

The solving of domestic problems belongs exclusively to the Party and people of each country and any kind of interference can only do harm to the cause of socialism, friendship and collaboration among the socialist countries.nicolae ceauşescu
The Nice treaty gave the Irish Government the right to appoint the Irish Commissioner. This right is removed under the Lisbon treaty.declan ganley
(About the Lisbon treaty): Small Member-States will inevitably be marginalised. The bigger states will not need to listen to their arguments as they did in the past.declan ganley
I am quite sure that if most of the voters that voted Yes to Lisbon knew the facts of what was in the treaty they would have voted No.declan ganley
Resolutions expressing Parliamentary approval of every treaty before ratification would be a very cumbersome form of procedure and would burden the House with a lot of unnecessary business. The absence of disapproval may be accepted as sanction, and publicity and opportunity for discussion and criticism are the really material and valuable elements which henceforth will be introduced.arthur ponsonby
