I prime minister of great britain handed the german and french 4th riech a note to say that we the british government would not give in to there demands for greater financial & monatary union unless our reqirements for repatriation of certain laws and treaties where accepted. The british goverment gave them till 5AM to respond. if there is no response then a state of 2 tiers european union will exist between us.You can imagine what a bitter blow it is to me that all my long struggle to win the debate has failed. Yet I cannot believe that there is anything more or anything different that I could have done and that would have been more successful.The situation in which no word given by the german and french rulers could be trusted, and no people or country could feel itself safe, has become intolerable. And now that we have resolved to finish it I know that you will play your part with calmness and courage.I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at 2 tier european union with Germany and france and all of there allies.
At such a moment as this the assurances of support which we have received from the empire are a source of profound encouragement to us. When I have finished speaking, certain detailed announcements will be made on behalf of the government. Give these your closest attention. The government have made plans under which it will be possible to carry on work of the nation in the days of stress and strain that may be ahead...
Now may God bless you all. May He defend the right. For it is evil things that we shall be fighting against - brute force, bad faith, injustice, oppression and persecution - and against them I am certain that right will prevail.
