"Brussels and Luxemburg assert that EU law, and the European Court of Justice (ECJ), take precedence over the UK constitution, including Parliament, our laws, our lawmaking and our courts. ... Others contend that Parliament has always retained the option to affirm or reject EU law. In other words it retains sovereignty. ... In early 2010, the Conservatives promised to clarify the matter with a Sovereignty Act specifically to affirm the supremacy of Parliament." (12/21/10)
