There’s a lot wrong with this viral list about the Lisbon TreatyA large number of our readers have asked us to factcheck a list of claims about the Lisbon Treaty, or “what will actually happen if we stay in the EU”, which has gone viral on social media. That’s partly because many recent versions of the text wrongly say that everything on the list is due to the “Lisbon Treaty”. The Lisbon TreatyMany recent versions of the list begin with this (or similar) text, which wasn’t present in earlier versions:WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT THE LISBON TREATY, THE TREATY THAT COMES INTO FORCE 2020, ITS WORSE THAN THE SO CALLED DEAL, IF 99% OF THE BRITISH THINK THIS THE DEAL IS BAD JUST LOOK AT THE LISBON TREATY. It’s wrong to say that the Lisbon Treaty comes into force in 2020. For all EU member countries, EU law takes “ supremacy ” over domestic law—to ensure that rules are applied uniformly throughout the EU.
