Brexit: An Australia deal, or an EU penal colony?

  • Negotiating failures mean the Government is now on a very sticky Brexit wicket
  • The righteous indignation about Britain breaking international law is laughable
  • Even after the transition period, I fear the Brexit story won’t have reached its conclusion

It never ceases to amaze me that more than four years on from the referendum we are still subject to the whole panoply of EU rules which we voted to leave behind. Of course all great historic shifts have taken time to bed in, sometimes decades – and rarely produce only the intended consequences.

Reflecting back to the referendum and my time on the Vote Leave Campaign Committee, as Chairman of the Business Council, I am struck by how few of those involved had any experience, knowledge or indeed interest in the hugely important issue of business and the economy.

Many thought it a distraction from the central messages around sovereignty and a weapon in the Remainer tool box, to be avoided by Brexiteers. Our current PM was famously reported to have said “f*** business”, although in fairness he was likely referring to the epicentre of vested interests, the CBI. Far from this august body being the embodiment of the economy,  in fact 83% of all businesses are family owned and/or run, actually care about Britain and feel part of their communities, in contrast to the multinationals. Many members of the policymaking engine room of the CBI are foreign-owned or headquartered. Along with the TUC they are invested in the European social partner model, which provides a political power base… Continue reading >>>

Court Overturns Fine Imposed By Biased Electoral Commission On Brexit Supporter.
A large fine imposed by a kangaroo court under the auspices of the UK’s democracy watchdog (allegedly,) The Electoral Commission, on a young, working-class Brexit campaign organiser, Darren Grimes, has been overturned in the law courts. The case, which many Remain campaigners have used in their efforts to discredit and overturn the result of the 2016 referendum on EU membership.

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU
Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson facing trial for his claim, during the EU Referendum campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Remainers claimed somebody in the Leave camp had said all the money would go to the NHS. Nobody actually said that but if fanatics want something to be true, they can easily convince themselves it is.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

Farage Shredded By Welsh Ministry Of Truth Newsman?
An obscure far – left website https://inktank.fi reported that while campaigning for the European Parliament elections in Wales, Nigel Farage was confronted by a BBC Wales reporter, Arwyn Jones, who asked him a question about Brexit, which you’d expect would be easy to answer: Farage didn’t answer, how could anyone answer such a stupid question posed by an idiotic reporter working for an ogranisation tasked by The Fourth Reich’s ruling bureaucracy in Brussels and their puppets in Westminster with presenting pro – EU propaganda as news …

There are sheeple who want to remain in the EU at any price, and then there are people who understand the EU
I am not sure people really are up for reading EU related documents or a whole load more people would be less excited about the EU. If people read the chequers plan and the political declaration they would know the only people who leave the EU are the financial sector. Everyone else stays in without a vote or veto for two years whilst we negotiate the long term deal…

Emmanuel Macron’s desperate push for further integration reminds Brexi supporters why we voted to Leave

Daily Telegraph, 6 March

Anyone who though in 2016 that staying in the European Union wass the status quo option will have been disabused by the intervention of Emmanuel Macron and his blueprint for the future of the \europe. The French president is increasingly derided in his homeland for his folie de grandeur; but even his compatriots must be taken aback by his Napoleonic pretensions to create a pan-European state.

Mr Macron, facing insurrection, economic crisis and a pandemic of immigrant crime at home from the gilets jaunes movement, Muslim migrants refugees and angry workers has concluded that the solution to the rise of populism on the continent is “more Europe”. You know he has the wrong answer just by looking at those who are cheering him on, the Eurocrats and western europhiliac politicians for whom the “project,” i.e. the creation of a federal European superstate, is everything.
