Project fear refuted …

Please click to express yourself

There are many serious and rational voices in support of a No Deal, despite the BBC’s overwhelming Project Fear coverage, and, to my surprise, by Channel 4’s Jon Snow (more on this below).

Two stupid, dangerous, hypocritical, weird, and probably mentally ill men (see Dr David Owen’s book Hubris Syndrome) who made it to PM Time for a change methinks

The pity is that these views are hidden from our view, but they are there, if you look.

So then, who are these misguided, treacherous, thick, ill educated No Deal supporters?

I have collected a few of the best arguments supplied by these well hidden voices below.

  1. The Mayor of Calais, surprising a BBC Today program interviewer two days ago; please listen here
    • “we are ready and have been preparing for no deal for over 12 months, and there is no problem”
      • as are Rotterdam and several other European ports
  2. Lord Anthony Bamford (Chairman of JCB – One of our oldest and most successful multi-national exporters) “A No Deal Brexit would end business uncertainty” read in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph Page 4
  3. Leeds University students surprising Jon Snow in his Channel 4 televised debate – see here
    • Shock horror, not all young people have swallowed the Project Fear offensive
    • So you are all leavers?” I quote Jon Snow’s incredulity at being faced down by so many rational 20 year erudite students!
  4. Sir Rocco Forte (Forte Hotels) “What we are not being told by the harbingers of doom is that inward investment into the UK in the first half of 2018 was the second highest in the world after China, but ahead of the US and Germany. We are not told that 94 per cent of businesses in this country are not trading in Europe.”
  5. Margaret Thatcher. See her famous speech (now all but forgotten) in 1982 railing against the formation of the EU and saying why she thinks the EU is a pile of poo (Ok “poo” is my word, not hers) – watch here
  6. Tony Blair in his 1983 pre-election address, before he started being paid by Europe and being told that one day he would become President of the EU.
    • Now then, that’s what I call a proper U turn 😉
  7. …and finally me, or anyone who has taken the time to read the Maastricht Treaty or even a summary. Read a very good, balanced, summary here in the Independent which is a quite rational and readable examination of the failure of Maastricht.

No Deal is far far better than any deal with the EU. The so called negotiated “agreement” is, and always has been a criminal waste of time by the Mother of Parliaments ignoring the wish a democratic majority. Quite sickening in my view.

This is exactly what our pathetic government has been doing for the two wasted years!

May’s deal is just criminally stupid, argued by someone who has never made anything, of worth, happen.

The time to pull the plug was two years ago, our dear leaders never saw it & still do not. Think about this image for at least 30 seconds – it sums everything up perfectly

Question: Who would I put in Orwell’s room 101?

Answer: All career politicians.

Why?

Politics original definition from the OED* “of the people, for the people“) is far too important to leave it to those who are clueless about the real life most of us (“we the people”) live. They think it means “of the politicians, for the politicians”

My evidence?

The last two years of party political idiocy arguing with the “unarguable with” (the EU bureaucrats and each other)”, who live by a rule book that nobody in the EU ever followed, other than the United Kingdom of Great Britain, of course ;-(

One despairs…

Today’s definitions:

  • Party politics discussed by journalists feeding their insane desire / need for endless short term media massage
  • Discussing, endlessly, what some politician said and whether or not this affects their credibility
