Carrying the torch for a British Secret Service Agent, Theologian and Knight of the Realm, plus a challenge to Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, to defend the EU at Wembley Sports Stadium as the author throws down the gauntlet.

In this enthralling book, the author takes us on a journey which spans 606 B.C. to the present day and beyond to the serious implications of our continued participation in the European Super State (or as many call it, the 4th Reich). We are drawn into an intricate web which weaves together many strands as we explore biblical prophecy, historical, social and political history, culminating in the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty.

A gentleman born in 1841 is pivotal to the theme of the book. 90 pages of this work are devoted to him. He was educated in Boulogne and Paris and then at Trinity College Dublin, where he qualified as a lawyer with distinction and was called to the Irish Bar. He became a respected member of the Irish Home Office and an expert on criminal investigation. In 1888 he was summoned to Scotland Yard to serve as Chief of the Criminal Investigation Department where crime fell dramatically during his period in office.

Perhaps better known as the Metropolitan Police Officer who investigated the Jack the Ripper murders, there was far more to this 'Prince of Detective's' than a mere investigating officer. He was involved with Secret Service work. His responsibilities included oversight of the Special Branch. Long before he assumed that post, he had become the foremost spymaster in the British Isles – though almost the only one, in a time and place where espionage was widely looked on as a dishonourable activity.

He mixed and debated with many of the great contemporaries of his time, A. J Balfour, William Gladstone, Thomas Huxley, Charles Darwin, Lord Wolesley, Leslie Stephen, Herbert Spencer and Professor S R Driver of Oxford plus others too numerous to mention here. In the book, you will meet with many of these characters as the author reveals many exciting facts. In 1896 Queen Victoria made him Companionship of the Order of Bath, and in July of that year the Queen invited both he and his wife Lady Agnes to an afternoon party at Buckingham Palace. In 1901 King Edward VII made him Knight Commander (of the Order) of Bath, and so the Assistant Commissioner of Police became a Knight of the Realm KBC, LLB. A prolific writer, he defended the prophecies of Daniel and predicted the European Union long before Jean Monnet and Robert Schuman were born. He warned of the dangers a union of European countries would bring, which of course as we now see has come to pass. In this book, the author deals specifically with the dangers this Irish Seer foresaw. Others following in his footsteps have also warned of Great Britain becoming a mere appendage to the European Continent. Prominent among them was Herbert W Armstrong (1892-1986)

According to the "Prince of Detectives" a confederation of European nations would develop through a great European crisis. And this European confederacy would be the next major political feature in history after the restoration of the Jews to Palestine. The nation of Israel was born in May 1948. The European Union was born in May 1950 exactly as the "Prince" had predicted. The Secret Service Agent recorded: "There would be a time when it (the European Union) is no longer a confederacy of nations bound together by treaty, with a Napoleon rising up in the midst of them and struggling for supremacy; but a confederacy of kings who are the lieutenants of one great Kaiser." This was the picture of EU and its coming powerful leader which the "Prince" painted in the 19th century.

Thankfully, the torch of truth as carried by this Police Officer did not flicker and die on his death, but was fanned again into flame and is now faithfully carried by his "adopted son" and British Patriot, Francis Codjoe. Moving on into the 21st century another former Metropolitan police officer, Albert Burgess, is carrying on a tireless campaign to regain our sovereignty and to prove that treason has been committed by our politicians. According to Burgess, papers he was handed in 2006 contained advice to the government from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office a Major Office of State. "This advice was that sovereignty was an outmoded idea with no importance in a modern world, and that we should dump our sovereignty and our constitution in order that our politicians could obtain power in a greater Europe. In these papers which all have Central Registry and Public Records Office Stamps, they set a deadline for the total loss of our Ancient Constitution and of our Sovereignty depending on which paper we look at as within 3 decades or the end of the century."

In this explosive book, the author pulls no punches as he sets about the major political and religious figures of our time: from Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor and their Roman Catholic Church to Cardinal Newman, from Baron Peter Mandelson of Hartlepool and Foy to President Jose Manuel Barroso; from the Archbishop of Canterbury to the theologian Dr Rowan Williams and his 'Church of Europe'; from Gordon Brown and the "bigoted woman" to Tony Blair and his deceitful government.

The author, incandescent with rage at hearing of the canonisation of Cardinal Henry Newman, argues that the Protestant Secret Service Theologian "dismissed Cardinal Newman's defence of the Catholic dogma of Transubstantiation, and refuted Newman's claim that the Catholic Church is the "Oracle of God" – the true home for atheists and agnostics".

Not one of them escapes his scathing pen regardless of their status. He picks them off one by one, without fear or favour, Leon Brittan, Chris Patten, David Miliband, Nick Clegg, David Cameron, David Laws, Denis MacShane, William Hague, Kenneth Clarke, Professor Ulrich Beck, Dr Henry Kissinger, Joe Biden and The 'Progressive Washington Trinity', David Attenborough, Andrew Marr and Dr. Richard Dawkins. All are found wanting as in the epilogue the writer flings down the gauntlet and issues the challenge to beat all challenges. Will Jose Manuel Barroso dare to accept a confrontation at Wembley Stadium - the debate of all debates on our wish to withdraw from the European Union?

The writer is certainly not shy of tackling the most controversial of subjects as he plunges into two of the hottest topics currently being fiercely contested, immigration and climate change.

On immigration he declares: "It is neither nastiness, xenophobic nor racism, nor bigotry, nor a manifestation of confusion to question the questionable mass immigration policy of governments - the influx of immigrants from Europe, Africa and Asia flooding into the Little Island. For mass immigration is creating confusion among the owners of the 'Little Pond'. Who, in his right mind, would pour 6 gallons of petrol into a 5-gallon petrol can? Is it not stupidity to attempt to undertake such a venture?"

Of the scientists propounding their global warming/climate change theories he scornfully states, "I defy the "Scare-Mongering Scientists" (SMS) who have predicted a worldwide calamity of famine, poverty, diseases, rising sea levels, rising temperatures and floods if we do not cease emissions of Carbon Dioxide. Why couldn't the sophisticated scientists predict the Global Financial Crisis of 2007- 2008 which resulted in the collapse and nationalisation of financial institutions in America and Britain? The answer is simple. Scientists have no 'eyes' to see future events."

In this meticulously drafted book, the writer has scoured every nook and cranny, left no stone unturned, in a brave and heroic effort to seek the removal of Great Britain from the crumbling EU monstrosity ruled by an unelected, unaccountable cabal of faceless bureaucrats.

Many others have warned of the dangers of a union of European Countries. Sir Winston Churchill said: "Each time we must choose between Europe and the open sea, we shall always choose the open sea." (Winston S. Churchill, the great British Prime Minister. Comments to de Gaulle before Normandy Landing on 06.06.1944.) He also said, "Every step that tends to make Europe more prosperous and more peaceful is conducive to British interests ... but we have our own dream and our own task. We are with Europe, but not of it. We are linked but not comprised. We are interested and associated but not absorbed. And should European Statesmen address us in the words which were used of old - 'Shall I speak for thee to the King or the Lord of the Host?' - we should reply with the words of the Shumanite woman: 'Nay sir, for we dwell among our own people ...'

Jaques Delors understood that Churchill envisaged European integration only for the countries of the European continent, not for Britain (as Delors noted in Le Monde, 3 May 2000).

Lady Margaret Thatcher herself also issued a warning: "Europe is a monument to the vanity of intellectuals, a programme whose inevitable destiny is failure: only the scale of the final damage is in doubt."

In 2002, Eric Deakins, former Labour MP and Government Minister, delivered a speech at Trinity College Dublin. The title of the motion was "This house believes that the European Union is a threat to democracy". In his address Deakins declared: "The Treaty of Rome was the result of a subversion of democracy. The process was not transparent; peoples of the member states had no real choice; they were deceived about long-term aims." He continued, "There is a fundamental contradiction between common law culture, where rights and power flow up from citizens to state, and Roman Law culture, where rights and power flow down from state to citizen. In making this comparison, I am mindful of Roman Emperor Justinian's comment: quod principi placuit legis habet vigorem (what the Emperor is pleased to command has the force of law); this could be a good motto for the Commission.

He then concluded: "The EU is not and never will be subject to the will of its peoples. They cannot vote to accept or reject policies coming from Brussels. The democratic deficit is an inevitable result of the way the EU has been and is being constructed. The EU will continue to be a threat to democracy at national and supranational levels. Democrats must fight harder against this threat. They must not retire to cultivate their gardens, leaving the field clear for the triumph of elitism and bureaucracy in the EU."

The following editorial puts it in a nutshell: "A New Superstate":

"Much has already been written in many places about the Convention on the Future of the European Union. Without doubt, this convention would, if its conclusions were ratified, be an enormous and significant step. Effectively, it would turn the European Union into a superstate in its own right, with the present member nations reduced to mere provinces. Although a supranational body from the beginning, the European Economic Community and its successors have at least operated according to treaties entered into by national governments; the Convention aims to go a vital stage further by establishing its own Constitution. The EU would, through this constitution, become the supreme source of legal authority over its entire territory, supplanting the member states and their own constitutions. This would be the final act in putting the United Kingdom under the control of a superstate. Whether the new state is to be called the European Union or the United States of Europe is immaterial; if it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck, whatever you choose to call it!"

We hear so much that is pro European but rarely are the Euro-sceptics given a voice. No matter how loud we shout our cries go unheard. We are the invisible majority air brushed from the media as indeed the "Prince of Detectives" has been airbrushed from history.

Several Freedom of Information requests have been placed regarding papers written by the Secret Service Agent by writers more interested in his case work on the Jack-the- Ripper murders than his prolific Christian writings and prophecies on the Union of Europe. However, it is worthy of note because these writers apparently know of the existence of papers which cannot be released even now, 122 years later. One must ask why and what a riddle, further research is needed now that the author has brought the Knight Commander and the "Seer of Dublin" back to life and full square in the public eye. He has told me that eventually he hopes to open a museum to celebrate the life and memory of this great theologian and detective, whose prophecies about Europe we would do well to heed. Otherwise, as Helmut Kohl, German Chancellor (1982-1988) said: "The future will belong to the Germans... when we build the House of Europe. In the next two years, we will make the process of European integration irreversible. This is a really big battle but it is worth the fight"(2002). Well, it most certainly is not irreversible as you will find as you wend your way through this book.

A truly gripping read from start to finish and a must for those who have never really understood the machinations of the European Union. A thoroughly researched and factual book which has taken the author almost 10 years of painstaking research and writing to complete. Ignore his words at your peril and your children and your children's children will reap the whirlwind. Codjoe has presented a massive case for our withdrawal from the European Union, like some barrister presenting a case against the European juggernaut. It is left to you the reader to decide on the evidence presented. "Is the future of the EU bright or dark?" Be warned and heed the following before making a decision, for indeed successive governments have been and are the enemy within.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague" (Marcus Tullius Cicero 106 BC – 56BC).

I am honoured to have been invited to write the foreword for this monumental book. I believe because of its historical, political, social and biblical significance, it could be incorporated into the college and university curriculum. Francis Codjoe is firm in his belief that there is a growing movement to push Christianity and our nation aside, I cannot disagree. In his defence of Britain, Christianity and the Christian way of life he stands firm and resolute. His hero, The Knight Commander (of the Order of Bath), would be proud of him as he carries the torch aloft and therefore I leave the closing words to him: "The Christian is consistent in his faith and the rationalist in his unbelief. Both are entitled to respect, for their position is intellectually unassailable. But what shall be said of men who cling to an edifice the foundations of which they have themselves destroyed."

"Religion is a fair ground for compromise; but Christianity is not a religion but a faith; and faith, like morality admits no compromise."
"The dethronement of the Bible eliminates the most important factor in the formation of our national character, and it is not easy to estimate the effect which this will have on the life of the people of this country."
(The Prince of Scotland Yard)
