It is the EU that has no sovereignty over anything.
So if you hear anyone suggesting otherwise, they are lying. Please do not vote in support of liars.
Referring to what he calls the Leave campaign’s “myths”, Prof Dougan said: “For someone who works in the field like I do, It’s probably the equivalent of an evolutionary biologist listening to a bunch of creationists tell the public that creation theory is right and evolution is completely wrong – it really is that bad for someone who actually is a professional researcher in the field. And yet it is working.”
In the video, Prof Dougan asserts that the UK has not ceded any sovereignty to Brussels. He says: “There is no doubt whatsoever that the United Kingdom is a sovereign state under international law. There is no doubt whatsoever that the Parliament in Westminster is the supreme lawmaking authority in this country. Conversely, there is no doubt whatsoever that the EU is not a sovereign entity.
“It has only those powers which it’s been given under the EU treaties. And if the UK courts sometimes give priority to EU law in the event of a conflict with domestic law, it’s purely because our Parliament has expressly instructed them to do so in our own legislation.”
He explained: “It’s very basic EU and constitutional law, and it’s amazing the national debate has been so distorted in the way that is has.”
