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.

The Electoral Commission is a supposedly impartial watchdog which has been criticised by Brexit supporters and Conservative campaigners for showing political bias both in the referendum and in cases arising from parliamentary and regional elections, is made up exclusively of pro – EU bureaucrats and former politicians. It’s judicial panel hit Grimes with the maximum individual fine of £20,000 although he is a student whose only income apart from his local authority grant is from a part-time job in a shop. His offence, apart from opposing the official narrative that sovereignty is an anachronism and all government power should be handed to supra national bodies made up of unelected bureaucrats, was based on accusations his youth-focused BeLeave group had been used as a conduit for the transfer of funds to the official ‘Vote Leave’ campaign, enabling it to exceed its spending limits.

After a cursory investigation of the allegations, the The Electoral Commission claimed that Grimes had exceeded BeLeave’s spending limits and wrongly reported them. For this he was reported to London’s Politically Correct Thought Police as well as imposing the excessive fine.

Grimes was adamant the judgement was incorrect and launched an appeal financed by crowdfunding, claiming that evidence had been ignored and his punishment was unjust as well as excessive. His legal fund was swelled by many contributions from individuals who supported Brexit. The arrogant elitists of the Electoral Commission went into overdrive in a bid to destroy an ordinary man for having the audacity to challenge them and proceeded to throw hundreds of thousands of pounds in taxpayer cash into railroading the court to uphold its fine and impose further penalties on Grimes .

The watchdog’s high powered legal team were unsuccessful however, with the County Court completely overturning the Electoral Commission’s fine after examining ALL the evidence in the case, concluding the verdict had been based on an extreme interpretation of a trivial human error.

“I am delighted and relieved that the Court has found me innocent,” Daren told the Guido Fawkes political blog after the verdict was announced, saying the case had “taken a huge toll on myself and my family”.

“The Electoral Commission’s case was based on an incorrectly ticked box on an application form – something that it had been aware of for over two years and had not been raised in two previous investigations,” he said.

“Yet the Commission still saw fit to issue an excessive fine and to spend almost half a million in taxpayer cash pursuing me through the courts… Today’s verdict is a victory against the Remain Establishment which has done all it can to try and discredit the biggest electoral victory in this country’s history,” he added.

“The powerful vested interests in this country don’t like the idea of the people taking back control… There has been a well- funded, coordinated campaign against me and those that have stood up to the Remain Establishment. Well today they have lost.”

N.B. had Guido not broken the story we would not have known of it as, predictably, it was totally blanked by mainstream media.

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?

farage-interview

Under the headline:

Welsh TV reporter shredding Nigel Farage is the best interview you’ll watch today

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:

A video clip of the exchange is going slightly viral on far – left, anto democracy sites such as Facebook and Twitter, with opponents of Brexit claiming Farage was ‘shredded’ by the reporter because he could not answer the question, “Can you name one WTO member nation that does not have a trade deal?

Of course 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. A quick count suggests the WTO has 170 member (give or take a few to allow for counting errors on my part, many of which are island nations with very small population and some of which few of us have ever heard. Eswatini anyone? Apparently, according to the WTO membership list, Eswatini is a WTO member.

(What? No I hadn’t heard of it either until I looked up the list of WTO members.)
Who knows if Eswatini has a trade deal? Who cares?

And who knew Tonga, (pop 100,000 spread across 36 islands) does not have a trade deal with anybody, not even nearby (well less than 1000 miles away) New Zealand, mainly because the Tongan economy is largely non – monetary. Their main sources of foreign exchange are payments from Britain, Australia and New Zealand, a small tourist industry (only the most intrepid would tracel so far to a place with so little to offer,) and remittances to family members from Tongans working overseas. They have no exports.

I only know this because I am at home on my computer with Wikipedia and Britannica Online at my fingertips. Almost every nation on the planet is now a member of the WTO, why would anyone know off the cuff the foreign trade policies of all of them. What is worthy of note is that no EU member states have trade deals either with each other, non EU trading partners or indeed the EU itself. They are bound by EU rules but those do not constitute a trade deal, free or otherwise. The EU itself is a member of the WTO and as its rules demand that member states surrender political sovereignty over trade policy to Brussels, not only the UK, but Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Netherlands and the rest of the member states cannot have any independent trade deals

But the item is reassuring in a way. If the Remainers are so far up shit creek with their efforts to get the Referendum overturned or Article 50 revoked they are celebrating imbecility, there’s hope for Brexit yet.

Stupid Remainer Snobs

In the comment thread on a crisis in the Conservative Party because of Theresa May’s inept handling of the Brexit process I came across this exchange of comments, which I think illustrates perfectly why supporters of Britain’s annexation by The Fourth Reich have behaved so obnoxiously towards those of us who informed ourselves of how the EU works , its long and short term policies and its contempt for democracy shown in responses to previous referendums in member states that have not gone te way the EU demanded. Read the original article HERE
Then look at the articulate and well thought out comment by Sally Bettis and the nasty, mean spirited response from a Remain supporter. 
Sally Bettis

Most of the remainer posts on here are positively dripping with the superior, high minded condescension the referendum winners have largely come to expect from hugely embittered referendum losers unable to stomach democracy unless it agrees with their point of view.

They perfectly exemplify the arrogance of the liberal left establishment and EU Bureaucrat elite – the EU has been failing it’s citizens for decades, all the way back to the hugely misconceived project of monetary union. It’s citizens have legitimate reasons to think the EU has been failing, not just on immigration and monetary union, but on its security policy and its policy towards radical islam to.

Look at the situation in Germany today where Merkel tells us that multiculturalism is going well and we just need to change our attitudes – but look at what the consequences have already been of throwing open the gates and embarking on a process of integration which seems to have almost no chance of success. Look at how unsuccessful Northern Europe was in admitting asylum seekers in the 1990’s on a much smaller scale. The unemployment differential between the native born and foreign born in Northern Europe was enormous even before the latest wave of migrations.

Monetary union has been a disaster for all the reasons most US economists and many of us said it would be (but not most UK economists/’experts’, who said it would be a disaster if we did’t join!).

European Security policy with respect to North Africa and the Middle East has been disaster too.

On the migration issue and radical islam issues the EU leadership has got it fundamentally wrong.

The EU elite’s performance over the last two decades has entirely justified the revolt of provincial UK – that was what we saw with Brexit and if the liberal establishment had spent a little time in provincial communities they would have heard this. Provincial UK said you’re arguing that this is all about GDP – it is not, it is about who governs us being democratically elected and being able to make our own laws and control our own borders.

In the midst of all this there has been an endless post mortem on what Cameron got wrong. What he got wrong was not to call the referendum, but when the EU leadership made a totally pathetic, risible offer to him which essentially meant nothing in terms of immigration control; he should have said “sorry that’s not good enough, I’m going to back Brexit” that was the great mistake of his political career and cost him another 10 years in Downing Street.

@Sally Bettis @Helen Smith Have a little generosity of sprit Sally, you should thank Helen for proving the absolute truth of you opening paragraph. I often get the same kind of responses from Remainers to my reasoned arguments in favour of leaving the EU because … well sombody who supported ‘Leave’ could not possibly be capable of stringing a few words together could they? 🙂
All of which serves to harden my conviction that leaving the EU is the only sane course of action. BTW great comment.

Most Absurd Brexit Claim Ever: “30-Year Recession, Worse Than 1930s

Ian R Thorpe

Writing in that repository of all left wing and globalist idiocies The Guardian, writer Amelia Hill makes the nonsensical assertion UK cannot simply trade on WTO terms after no-deal Brexit, offering only the opinions of left wing and globalist ‘experts’ in support of her case. Here’s a sample:

The UK will be unable to have frictionless, tariff-free trade under World Trade Organization rules for up to seven years in the event of a no-deal Brexit, according to two leading European Union law specialists.

The ensuing chaos could double food prices and plunge Britain into a recession that could last up to 30 years, claim the lawyers who acted for Gina Miller in the historic case that forced the government to seek parliament’s approval to leave the EU. Anneli Howard, a specialist in EU and competition law at Monckton Chambers and a member of the bar’s Brexit working group, believes this isn’t true, Hill claims

“No deal means leaving with nothing, Sir Ivan Rogers former UK Premanent Representative to the the European Institute said in a lecture that the anticipated recession will be worse than the 1930s, let alone 2008. It is impossible to say how long it would go on for. Some economists say 10 years, others say the effects could be felt for 20 or even 30 yearseven ardent Brexiteers agree it could be decades.”

Nobody involved with The Daily Stirrer has seen or heard any Brexiteers hysterical predictions of a thirty years recession, but Remainers are not known for their honesty or level headedness. However Hill was not done with the anti – Brexit hyperbole.

The government cannot simply cut and paste the 120,000 EU statutes into UK law and then make changes to them gradually, she said. “The UK will need to set up new enforcement bodies and transfer new powers to regulators to create our own domestic regimes,” she said.

She’s talking through her posterior orifice again. Those laws are alread in British law and can be undone gradually. That has already been clarified by constitutional lawyers.

Effects Felt for 30 Years

Hill made five references to Anneli Howard, whose CV describes her as a leading junior lawyer in telecommunications law, in the article but the alleged expert’s professional status as a junior lawyer hardly qualifies her opinion as authoritative.

Hill’s moans about a 1930s recession and claims even ardent Brexiters agree it could be decades, in the same paragraph. Again she does not name these Brexiteers. In an linked-to article by The Guardian, titled: Two, 50 or 100 years: when do leavers think Brexit will pay off? writer Emine Saner employs that old trick of a very misleading headline.

This is what Jacob Rees-Mogg, the Brexiteer alluded to actually said: We won’t know the full economic consequences for a very long time.” That is quite accurate. Benefits accrue every year.

Former Brexit Secretary David Davis said There is no reason why many of these cannot be achieved within two years.”

Hill managed to take an already purposely-overhyped headline title and turn it into a complete fabricated lie, fake news that links recessions to a 30-year wait for the full benefits to be known.

After 16 paragraphs of total scaremongering and attempted scattering of Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, Hill mentions the counter-claims.

Economists for Free Trade, a group with links to Jacob Rees-Mogg and David Davis, claims there is “nothing to fear” from leaving the EU without reaching an agreement.

David Collins, a professor of international economic law at City University of London, said: “The UK can trade quite easily on an uncertified schedule.”

However, Collins conceded that an uncertified schedule “might be an indication of that complaining member’s intention to initiate a dispute against the member,” and that “the WTO dispute settlement process can take several years to resolve”.

Thus two correctly cited experts say no problem. Two law experts, not economic experts makes the opposing claim.

Collins, an international economics professor, is certainly correct, but notice the slant of the article and the title.

The idea of a 30-year recession wins first prize for the most stupid statement ever about Brexit, and that is saying quite a lot.

Hill deserves an award herself (for bad journalism of fake news maybe,) for producing an absurd article full of politically biased nonsense, without even properly referencing who one her alleged “experts” is.

The Guardian frequently presents fake news articles with left-wing progressive and anti – Brexit slants. Hill and Saner provide today’s examples.

As for that predicted 30-year recession:

Short-term, the EU will get hit much harder than the UK. Germany will get hit the hardest. At that point the EU, if it survives, will be ready for serious trade agreement negotiations with the UK.

Whistleblower: UK Prepared for ‘No Deal’ Brexit, Scare Stories ‘Absolutely Untrue’

leave means leave
No deal? Leave means leave (Picture: Breitbart )

We did tell you the Remainers and EU fanboys were scaremongering. Now it’s official – well sort of …

A senior civil servant has lifted the lid on a Remainer conspiracy behind Project Fear , revealing that the country is actually well-prepared for a “No Deal” Brexit and scare stories about Britain “crashing out” into “chaos and doom” are “absolutely untrue”. So it’s time we were rid of that weird looking gobshite Hammond and the little Canuk cunt and the Bank Of England, Carney.

The anonymous official, who has been involved in Britain’s preparations for a Brexit on World Trade Organization (WTO) terms — the so-called “No Deal” scenario — revealed in a Telegraph article that there are “hundreds” of plans in place to ensure that outlandish threats of food, water, and medicine shortages will not be realised, and that “it is purely a political decision not to make this clear to the public and nervous backbench MPs”.

“Project Fear Mark (I think) III… claims that we will all ‘crash out’ over the white cliffs of Dover into the Channel at 11 p.m. on 29 March 2019 and wake up to certain chaos and doom… [I]t is absolutely untrue, as anyone who, like me, has been involved in Brexit work for the past two-and-a-half years in Whitehall will tell you,” he scoffed.

Well this blog has been telling you since 2016 that Remainers were a bunch of neo-con globalist authoritarians who would have trashed our country completely rather than give up the dream of a totalitarian world government – towards which a federal Europe was a vital step.

Eurosleaze:May’s Top Brexit Bureaucrat Offered Millions by Big Banks


Teresa May and Olly Roberts

Oliver ‘Olly’ Robbins, the top bureaucrat to whom Theresa May has delegated most of her Prime Ministerial negotiating powers on Brexit, is being head – hunted by a number of major investment banking corporation, for a role in their organisations after the EU negotiations are complete.

The unelected civil servant has openlt expressed admiration for the tyrannous bureaucracies of the Soviet Union, noting that the autocratic Communist leaders transformed Russia “from a backward peasant autocracy, despised by the West, into a technological giant at whom the world cowered in fear for half a century”. Obviously Olly hasn’t read any histories of the Soviet era.

Such sentiments have helped to fuel a widespread belief among Leave-supporting politicians that Robbins, like all senior civil servants a rabid Remainer, would rather Britain would not leave the European Union at all and become a vassal state of the EUSSR. He has been the driving force pushing the Prime Minister towards a soft ‘Brexit In Name Only’ in which the UK will remain subject to the EU’s institutions and regulations in many respects and continue to pay £billions into the EU while not enjoying the few benefits of membership.

However, his theoretically neutral position has now been further compromised by the news that he is being headhunted by investment bankers willing to pay him a million pounds a year to advise them on strategy post Brexit. There is a clear conflict of interest and he should be fired from his civil service post.

Many of the biggest banking corporations, including Goldman Sachs, J P Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup poured big money into the Remain campaign, and there are concerns that the prospect of a salary many times larger than Robbins could expect to earn even at the very top of the Civil Service could impact his decision-making in the EU negotiations.

“Olly has his exit strategy,” a source remarked to the Sunday Times. “Every man and his dog in the City wants him.”
