Remain insults show they still don’t get the point

This piece was originally written for and published by MBGA News and Pax Britannica last week

This week has seen the Spring Conference of the pro EU Liberal Democrats and a speech from their leader, Sir Vince Cable, that shows why his party are becoming an irrelevance on the national stage – they are in denial about the Leave vote in the Referendum and have no idea what drove it.

Sir Vince stated in his keynote speech that older voters were driven by nostalgia and for a world where ‘faces were white’.

I was the co-ordinator for the Leave campaign in Hillingdon during the referendum, a West London Borough with a very diverse community. Funnily enough, those older white faces were in the more affluent North of our Borough which had the smallest leave vote – we had a 57% mandate to leave the EU across the borough but the strongest vote for our exit from the EU was in the Hayes & Harlington constituency at nearly 60%, a constituency that is a Labour stronghold and where White English people are now in the minority. Like Sir Vince, local MP John McDonnell dismissed the leave vote on the Sophy Ridge Show on Sky a few weeks later as being driven by ‘fear of the other’ and a ‘lack of information’

I had many memorable conversations on our street stalls in the area during the campaign, one of the most striking being with a Black South African who had been involved in the anti Apartheid campaign in his homeland during the 1980’s. He advised me that he was fully behind BREXIT as he had fought so hard to get his voice heard during those times – “I can’t believe that anybody would vote to give away their ability to elect those who represent them when I had to fight to get my right to vote”

Our team also heard many BME Britons talk about embracing the Commonwealth and those who had stood with us during the times when Europe was not such a peaceful place – they felt upset that well qualified friends and family of theirs who wanted to come to the UK and could contribute as engineers and medical staff were discriminated against in favour of white Europeans who were coming to do manual work. Indeed, a report published last week showed that EU migrants are costing the UK economy £4bn in benefits payments when our NHS is struggling to recruit trained staff from outside of the EU to fill the skills gap that has been exacerbated by the failure of our government to train the staff that we desperately need from our own labour pool.


Sir Vince also stated that the vote had crushed ‘The dreams and aspirations of younger people for years to come’. Maybe he has not consulted the younger people of Italy who see unemployment rates of over 40% and voted overwhelmingly last week for Eurosceptic parties in their national elections, or the unemployment rates amongst the youth of Greece and Spain whose economies have been crushed by the EU and their Euro currency to push their unemployment rates to similar levels? Is this the future you wish to see for the youth of our country in pursuit of the EU superstate Sir Vince?


Vince Cable represents the dreams of the 20th century, a protectionist bloc when tariffs were high and the world was a different place. BREXIT represents the dreams of the 21st Century – a UK that is outwardly looking, globally trading, independent and prosperous. A 21st century where your personal ability and hard work is the judge of who you are, not your skin colour, age, gender or religion.

His opinions should be left in the past along with his political party

Signs that Britain is still actively involved in PESCO EU Military Union?

Sent to me by a friend, has the threat of the EU Army disappeared?

I have just been looking at Michelle Barnier’s speech in Berlin yesterday. Some interesting points which maybe more revealing than we ever get from the UK government and the EU ambition to grow its EU army by 2025 continue to get more extensive everyday to a St Malo Agreement made on 3rd December 1998 to have a defence force under one roof run by the EU.


Ladies and Gentlemen,

For the first time since the failure of the European Defence Community in 1954, we are witnessing an unprecedented effort to establish a Defence and Security Union. This is the roadmap we need to follow between now and 2025!

New Element discovered by scientists at CERN

A guest post by John Planter – with tongue firmly in cheek…..


Scientists at CERN in Geneva have announced the discovery of the HEAVIEST element yet known to science.

AND yes … it was discovered in Great Britain , which is now the leading producer.

The new element is Governmentium (Gv).  It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lefton-like particles called peons.

Since  Governmentium has no electrons or protons, it is inert.  However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes in contact.

The Chennai 6 – an update

I recently wrote on this blog about the British ex-servicemen currently held on trumped up charges in an Indian gaol.

Further to an email to Foreign Secretary and Uxbridge MP Boris Johnson, I recently received the following reply to my enquiry about what the British government is doing to secure their release…


Dear Mr Dixon

Thanks you for your email of 6 October about the six former soldiers currently detained in India.

While we are unable to interfere in another country’s legal processes, I can reassure you that since the men’s detention we have regularly made clear to the Indian authorities our interest in this case. Each time we raise this case, we stress the importance of seeing progress and make clear the enormous strain and financial difficulty the ongoing separation is causing the men and their families.

The Prime Minister last raised the case with Indian Prime Minister Modi when they met in July at the G20 in Hamburg. I raised the case with the Indian Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, in August and the the Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Rt Hon Mark Field MP, raised the case with the Indian Minister of State for External Affairs, Mr J Akbar, when he visited India in October. He also visited the men in detention and subsequently met with families in London on the fourth anniversary of the men’s arrest on 12 October.

The Data Protection Act of 1998 prevents me from discussing the details of the consular assistance we are providing to any British national without their express permission, but I can assure you that while the case continues and the men remain in detention, consular officials continue to support them, focusing on the men’s welfare.

They take account of their individual needs and have secured significant improvements in their detention conditions.

The Right Hon Boris Johnson MP


My thanks to Boris Johnson for his reply and we hope to see these brave men home soon
