Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision. How they cast their vote will shape the future of the world’s fifth largest economy and the EU itself.Should we regard polls as a reliable pointer after last years General Election and the Scottish Referendum?
Fears over privacy, raise by internet hacking and activist sites such as Wikileaks and general mistrust of the media have made many people reluctant to take part in polls, one polling organisation I read of had to call 22,000 people in order to select a representative panel of 2000 for a telephone poll.
The current situation in the EU polling as David Cameron desperately tries today to win concessions that will make staying in the EU acceptable to supporters of the Conservative Party he leads is that Britain has long received a “poor man’s offering” from what they view as a German and French-dominated bloc. Some even blame the unrealistic EU’s emissions rules for forcing the beloved Land Rover Defender 4×4 out of production.
Cameron’s plans to appease sceptical voters by cutting the benefits paid to EU migrants appealed to undecided voters but looks to be a non starter among EU leaders who must approve the deal. European Parliment President Martin Schulz, who last year said that public opinion does not matter and EU bureaucrats will do as they please regardless of any votes, has stated that any deal offered to Cameron today cannot be legally binding.
Fair warning it seems that the EU will stab us in the back should we vote to leave.
The ‘Leave’ campaigns are not faring any better. Talk less about immigration and give more detail on whether Britain would be better or worse off outside the EU, many people in areas not much affected by mass immigration are saying.
Around one in five British voters tell pollsters they have yet to make up their minds. Many are middle-aged women who support Cameron’s Conservatives and live outside London and Scotland, two of Britain’s most pro-European areas.
If Cameron is to keep Britain in the bloc it joined in 1973, he will need to secure the vote of millions of people in rural areas and the old industrial towns of the north and midlands.
The game changer, should voters wake up to it, is that as UKIP leader Nigel Farage revealed, whatever deal Cameron wins over the next few days will be a fraud. The Prime Minister will present it to the nation as a done deal before the actual vote and should we vote to leave it will be binding on us.
Any changes to the terms of our membership however must be approved by the European Parliament and MEPs will certainly veto it, as the Parliament itself and its voting system (Qualified Majority) are heavily biased in favour of those nations that support ever greater integration until member states no longer exist as sovereign nations but only as administrative regions in a Federal European Superstate.
The rest of Europe is watching warily – Britain is the EU’s second largest economy, one of only to net contributors to EU funds, and one of its top two military powers.
Cameron’s EU Package: Not A Deal But A Few Turns In The Spin Machine
As we and almost everybody else predicted, David Cameron’s deal to improve Britain’s relationship with the EU is worthless. It changes nmothing, and can be vetoed once we have voted to stay in.
The German EU Ubermacht
The confrontation between Germany, which some say sees itself as the increasingly dominant nation in the EU as ‘ever closer integration’ progresses, and Greece, the Euro zone economic basket case but a proud and independent nation all the same, had to come. Germany was more austerity from Greece to protect the value of the Greek debt it hold. Greece want money from Germany to settle old grievances.
Merke’s Refugee Quotas dividing europe
After several years of trying to provoke Russia into acts of military aggression the Obama administration has finally decided it cannot win a shooting war aganist Russia, China and their alllies. So the Americans are going for a currency war. despite winning early skirmishes the long term outlook there isn’t good either
As yet another Euro – nazi political figure, the German foreign minister, breaks cover to say that opposition in Europe to the creation of a single European nation must be suppressed at all costs, we wonder what it will take to make the millions of sheeple wake up and realise they are folloeing our leaders down the road to Nuremberg.
European dictator Schulz
The Daily Stirrer has always said that the european Union was not an association of free states collaborating to make trade easier, but a bureaucratic dictatorship under the palsied heel of which the freedom and sovereigfnty of democratic nations wouldf be crushed. Here’s an example of an EU Bureaucrat autocratically overruling the democratically expressed with of the voters.
E U boss defends lack of transparency
A leaked document reveals the extent to which the Canada Europe Trade Agreement (CETA), a template for the much bigger and therefore more threatening to freedom and democratic rule Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment partnership (TTIP), will give Corporate businesses dominion over sovereign nation’s elected asdsemblies and law courts. It’s time we took up pitchforks and cudgels to march on London …
Europe In Chaos
As the hysteria intensifies folloeing the enormoust anti EU swing in elections for the European Parliament, we look at what options are available to the mostly pro EU, pro federalisation leaders of the main European Union nations, that will not result in the citizens if Europe becoming further alienated from the political and technocratic classes.
