Polexit: EU will never allow EU to be sovereign

This month, Poland held a number of rallies in response to its top court ruling that said key EU laws were incompatible with the Polish constitution. The ruling raised concerns that Poland could follow Britain and leave the EU.

However, the Polish government has denied having such intentions. Poland's Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, defended the ruling and said his party had no plans for Polexit. He wrote on Facebook: This is a responsible myth, which the opposition uses for its own lack of ideas about Poland's place in Europe. Now, in his latest column in the Telegraph, Hannan has said that the EU will never allow its member states to be sovereign as Brussels is sovereign over its member countries Mr Hannan wrote: A sovereign state is at liberty to enter into agreements with its neighbours and submit to binding arbitration mechanisms. What makes the EU s treaties different from every other international accord is that they do not just apply to their signatories as states; rather, they create a new legal order that is directly binding on citizens with or without implementing legislation at national level. If there is a conflict, decisions by EU institutions override national statutes and even national constitutions. The EU is, in the exact sense, sovereign over its member countries.
