EU Constitution & an accountable Parliament

Lord Forsyth of Drumlean said in the House of Lords on 22 November:

What exactly did the Government mean in the gracious Speech when they talked about making Parliament more accountable, given that they propose to give the powers of this Parliament to a supranational body without the consent of the people and on a whipped vote on their side of the House?

When Brown does sign the Treaty on 13 December, it will make Parliament even less accountable and even less trustworthy than it had been previously (if that is possible).
