War without bloodshed

The following is a letter sent to a senior member of government, Justice Minister David Gauke, about the ongoing Brexit process

I have had the pleasure of meeting Dr Richmond on numerous occasions, a deeply thoughtful and intelligent man who could not be further from the Remain myth of all Brexiteers being uneducated, insular oafs. His direct and revealing communication is well worth a read

 

Dear Mr Gauke

 
According to Mao Zedong, ‘Politics is war without bloodshed’. Most of the electorate, justifiably, perceive this  aphorism as a metaphor for Parliament’s acrimonious debates surrounding Brexit. Especially since, amongst all the furore, most MPs are deliberately ignoring that the referendum asked the electorate to decide whether we wish to leave the EU, not whether we wanted ‘a deal’. Moreover, in the absence of negotiating any better future relationship, we would trade with the EU, as we do with most nations, under WTO rules. In other words ‘a deal’.
 
Previous correspondence stated it unwise to treat the electorate as stupid, even if not very erudite. This impression is conveyed by most Ministers, MPs, Big Business, the Elite, the EU and, not least, the Prime Minister. Such disdain ignores that the cost of MPs salaries, expenses and ‘jollies’ (sorry, fact finding missions!), falls on the electorate.
 
Contrary to assiduously cultivated opinion, leaving the EU is not about trade, however important. Rather, it concerns Britain’s ability to control its  laws, borders, taxation, security, trade and foreign affairs. In a word, Sovereignty. Nothing in the Oath of Allegiance, sworn by all MPs and Peers to the Crown, cedes any kind of control or Sovereignty to any foreign government or entity. The Withdrawal Agreement, continually promoted by the PM, will ensure Britain becomes a vassal of the EU; and the common rules and regulations of a Customs Union will prevent us formulating trading conditions that suit our interests. Each are breaches of the 1689 Bill of Rights, which, as Minister for Justice, you must know.

What the establishment don’t want you to know about the EU

Many on the Remain side have stated that we should have voted for the ‘Status Quo’ rather than striking out ‘in to the unknown’ by voting to leave the EU.

But how many really know what is going on in the parts of Europe that are members of the EU and is it really a ‘safer’ option ?

 

This is an account of a Europe that we don’t hear about in the mainstream media (From somebody who is living it at present) sent to me by a trusted friend –

 

————————————————————————————————————————————–

 

Earlier today I asked the question “Would you vote Remain or Leave now you know more about the EU?”  and a friend of mine,  Eddy Lonergan, posted this comment …. I’ve typed it out word for word as I believe that everybody needs to know what’s really happening in Europe from somebody who has lived in Holland for almost the past 4 decades,

 

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS REGARDLESS OF WHAT SIDE OF THE BREXIT FENCE YOU FIND YOURSELF BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT EVERYBODY SHOULD KNOW WHAT’S NOT BEING GIVEN NEWS COVERAGE …..

 

 

Eddy Lonergan’s own words … not mine

 

 

“I wish the Brits would take the time to see whats going on here .. I’m from Liverpool living in Holland getting on 40 years now. …. It is just as bad, in some ways worse than in the UK. For example, Health Insurance is compulsory whether working or unemployed. My wife and I pay 250 euros per month and that is basic, no dentals, physios or extras. 2 major hospitals have shut down – there are no beds – the A&E is the same as the UK, families are asked to look after their parents because of shortages in Care.

The immigration problem is a laughing stock, food banks are not coping, people in work are not making ends meet and are relying on food banks. …. Belgium, Germany and France have the same problems. Angela Merkel is stepping down as Prime Minister (Chancellor) but has forgot to tell everyone she has a secure high position in Brussels. …. Why would you want to be a member of a gang of pocket-filling thieves who do not care about their people? … As for Juncker … don’t get me started ….

The EU countries are crumbling and no f*cker gives a”dangle-doo-dandy”, so GET OUT while you can and maybe others will follow suit”. …. They are scaring and flexing their muscles and hoping that it will turn around, because the membership fee the UK puts in every year will have to be put up by the remaining countries. …. Holland will have to double their fee we’ve been told. … What other countries can afford this?

Spain, Greece, Italy all bankrupt, so you see the EU does not want to lose the UK and will bully any way to try to win it over by threatening the Northern Ireland deal, the fishing deal, giving back Gibraltar and whatever else they can get their grubby hands on, so don’t be fooled, it’s not a bed of roses, things are bad here and like I said, in some matters its worse.

The riots in France are not just about fuel tax, its about living standards. …. Belgium and Holland have also taken up the baton with the Yellow Jacket Demonstrators because they’re tired of it. …. Take the time to find out yourselves, then you will be glad of Brexit, and like I’ve said, with sense, Holland will follow suit” …

 

The EU is crumbling and they are desperate to keep hold of UK contributions by any means possible – we MUST leave as promised on 29th March or be dragged down with the rest of the EU member states by the corrupt bureaucrats in Brussels 

 

 

 

What the EU trade deal with Japan tells us

After many years of negotiation, the EU announced this week that it has finalised a trade deal with Japan, the world’s third largest economy.

The deal will remove ‘almost entirely’ any tariffs on trade between that country and the EU bloc.

Unsurprisingly, supporters of remaining in the EU have been gleefully pointing out that such a deal proves that the UK needs to stay in to gain advantages that we will lose upon Brexit.

But let’s look at just what the deal means.

Whilst gaining tariff free access to the Single Market, Japan will retain full border control, make no payments to the EU, will not be subject to rulings from the ECJ or Directives from The Commission and will be able to make its own trade deals in the future. Isn’t this what the EU have been saying is impossible in the ongoing Brexit ‘negotiations’ due to the ‘integrity’ of the Single Market?

If they can give such a deal to Japan, why not to the UK – a country with whom they have far larger trade at the present time? Indeed, Article 8 of The Lisbon Treaty states –

The Union shall develop a special relationship with neighbouring countries, aiming to establish an area of prosperity and good neighbourliness, founded on the values of the Union and characterised by close and peaceful relations based on cooperation.

Why a hero of mine has got it so wrong on the EU

Dear Mike

 

I grew up listening to your anecdotes and songs as a youngster whose family on his father’s side were from the North West of England – I still have some of your vinyl here and ‘Comrade Olga’ continues to raise a smile!

You have my agreement in full on Theresa May’s ‘Brexit Deal’ – it is the worst of all worlds.

I heard your heartfelt plea on James O’Brien’s show on LBC and whilst I agree with the sentiment, I can’t agree with the content.

My mother’s side of the family have six generations in England after fleeing the Irish potato famine and my Grandmother on my father’s side was from Waterford – they didn’t need EU freedom of movement to come to England and contribute.

The Poles were a massive help to us in WW2, driven by the conquest of their country and their huge patriotism in trying to get it back – I have a friend who is a second generation Pole whose grandfather fought with 303 Squadron at RAF Northolt locally and then settled after the war and who fully supports Brexit. I have also met skilled Poles who came in the first wave of migration after the accession who have since seen their dreams of building a life here smashed as the big corporations have driven their wages down through competition pushed by uncontrolled migration and EU rules that have allowed less able people to challenge them for their jobs. I still vividly remember knocking on the door of one in Thurrock who had obtained a mortgage, settled with his wife and had a child who then saw his wages eroded to the extent that they had to take in a lodger to keep up the payments – a man who wanted to embrace our culture and community but saw his lifestyle destroyed by those who want to come here for a few years, earn money and then go back to their home countries without putting in to either ours or their own country’s economy to support their fellow citizens.

With regards to living, working and settling in mainland Europe this happened before the creation of the EU. I have British friends on the continent and European friends here whose residency predates 1973, including a particularly feisty French lady called Armelle who married a war hero (Who was half British/Half French but took UK citizenship to fight in the war) who is massively active on local issues and is an ardent Brexiteer.

The van going around telling illegal immigrants to ‘go home’ was, I agree, pathetic – if you are illegal, would you listen to it? What message did that also send out to those here legally who help to contribute to our society?

The treatment of the Windrush Generation was a national disgrace, but at least the Tories apologised for it – it was the previous Labour government who issued the instruction to destroy the documents that proved their right to be here and have since disgracefully used it to score political points rather than engaging in sorting out the mess they caused.

This must be sorted as a matter of priority.

How Britain suffered a second “1066”

A guest post from UKIP Reigate’s Peter Lindsay

As we face a Fake Brexit, we should ponder just how it has come about that while nearly 60% of us (if you adjust the actual % vote for Brexit – 52% – for the fear factor generated by Project Fear) want an independent Britain, 85% of our “representatives” (sic) in Parliament – those MPs who supported Remain – want our continued subservience to a foreign power. Are these really our representatives?

One might also ponder why it is that the same representatives have allowed mass immigration over the last 70 years to change the culture of this country, without even asking the native population whether they wanted this. The explanation is that we have been beaten in a bloodless war. To explain:

Britain has not been conquered by a foreign invader for nearly a thousand years. Not militarily, that is. But you can just as effectively “take over” a country by other means. This can be done by either (1) successfully taking over its vital institutions as a precursor to government, or (2) a revolution or coup d’etat. An example of (1) was the aftermath of the Boer War: although the British won the war, the vital institutions – media, education, civil service, local government etc. were all run by the Afrikaaners, who were the majority white population and by the 1920s they had taken over the government. An example of (2) was the Russian Revolution or French Revolution but such coups can happen over time and even without violence.

In the 20th century, Britain suffered a “pincer” attack from both outside – (2) and within – (1). Like a vice closing. Whereas our glorious Royal Navy and RAF had always beaten off a foreign invader, we found ourselves wide open to these more subtle attacks and so we were eventually beaten by them.

A challenge to James O’Brien

Hiding behind his fader and famous for talking over people he disagrees with and deflecting conversations, James O’Brien hosts his own show on LBC between 10am-1pm on weekdays.

But would O’Brien be as effective in a neutral environment with a public debate and chairman to officiate? My friend ,Gerald Gravett, has issued the following challenge –

 

To

Mr James O’Brien.

LBC Radio

 

Dear James,

 

I am a regular listener to your radio programme. I listen as I like to keep an open mind.

 

May I congratulate you on the preparation and construction of your arguments. You clearly select angles which brilliantly favour your stance. Your weakness seems to me to be that whether you are right or wrong, you alienate many people by verbally denigrating and abusing those who disagree with you. You surely need to rely on strong arguments supporting your contention – which you do really well – but do rather less shouting at opposing views. You have perfected the art of shouting in a quiet but condescending manner, one that appears specifically designed to aggravate and provoke anger in those who disagree with you. You do yourself no favours in this regard. Understand opposing views, address them directly and do not just rail against them.

 

You criticise observers and reporters by saying they are all talk and it is easy for them to talk as they are not in a position to make decisions. But these people are able to influence those who make decisions by leading and reflecting public opinion. You fall into this category, as do your colleagues on LBC such as Nigel Farage, Ian Dale etcetera.
