General election Q & A – Happy Maastricht ;-)

Rate this postYippeee! Another general election 😉 the third since the five year fixed term parliament act came into err “force” in 2011. Your Christmas General Election quiz starts here. Just 10 questions to answer. There may be prizes (Ed: I doubt it …) The biggest question left for me is “does this Boris Johnson’s exit deal actually give us freedom from the EU?”. My current understanding is that it still ties us into EU rules (for some years) and

Our MPs are simply ignoring the wishes of the British people

Rate this postMay I try to put the childish, irrelevant “furious backlash“, as reported today by the BrBC (British Remoaning Broadcasting Corporation), into some logical context? You may have guessed that I am for leaving the EU by now 😉 The Remainers have been told effectively to shut by Boris. Hurrah for him! This is why: Our MPs are simply ignoring the wishes of the British people. In 2016 the people were asked by our government to make the decision,

Salzburg, time for May to walk away, enough is enough

Rate this post

Rate this postThe BBC’s ridiculous pro-Remain stance is irritating enough, but Salzburg has exposed Theresa May, yet again, to be completely clueless. I have been saying this for months here and here and here. Do the BBC, Theresa May & Dominic Raab really think we are all stupid? The EU’s delusional bureaucracy is simply fighting for its very existence. It is scared shitless of the domino effect once we, the second largest net contributor, leave. The EU is a failed organisation

Brexit: UK fisheries are sold out … again

Rate this post

Rate this postAs Nigel Farage has said today “We sold out fisheries when we joined the EEC and we’re selling them out now as we leave.” I could not agree more, but it seems that almost nobody else can see that “we the people” are being screwed both by the EU and our own government. I think the two cartoons below tell the story better than I can but where would we be without a sense of humour? (Answer: at foot

The Institute for global change, Blair & Adonis

Rate this post“The Institute for Global Change” blames Populism for the incorrect result of the Brexit referendum. Adonis said “Brexit is a populist and nationalist spasm worthy of Donald Trump” (full text of his letter here). Tony Blair fronts ‘The Institute for Global Change’. Multinationals fund it (but try and find out who!). The Institute for Global Change is a preposterous and egotistically named organisation.

The EEC, the EU and why it’s time to leave

Rate this post

Rate this postEver since I started this blog, some 8 years ago, I have written many posts urging us to leave the EU because of what I discovered in my personal quest to understand why and how the EEC became the EU. Prophetic is the description I would use, or so I hope, having just re-read them. I’d love to know what you think! 😉 This is my last chance to persuade you to vote leave on the 23rd June.

Cameraman, the EU & the pointless charade

Rate this post

Rate this postEveryone I meet who is even minimally interested in the EU, knows that Cameraman’s EU negotiations have been pointless from the start. The charade continues to be supported by the BBC and most journalists because “the story” fills up the time available for news broadcasts and keeps everyone busy. There is no reason at all to link the date of the promised referendum to what Cameraman is doing. Yet this is being presented as being a necessary step!

Rate this postWhat we the people have said is what none of those in power want to hear. Our “None of the above” protest vote is still not being heard by any of the political parties. We, the people, have said it, not just in Britain, but, all over Europe. The knee jerk response to the EU, is UKIP’s “out is best”. I have a fair degree of sympathy with that view, but let’s examine the alternatives. Notice, I do

The EU, silly Millband and daft Dave’s desperate days

Rate this postEd Miliband as leader of the Labour Party? Ed Miliband has never found his way into our hearts since becoming leader of the New / Old / Labour party. The labour party faithful just cannot accept that he is simply not leadership material. He sounds odd and looks weird. If that seems unkind, well tough, it’s simply true! Not PC but true. Millibean’s  latest desperate pronouncement on not supporting a referendum just shows how incapable of rational thought

EU debate – the ‘in or out’ un-reality show

Rate this post

Rate this postLack of definitions mean arguing about the EU gets nowhere Everywhere the media is full of the ‘politics’ of the EU “in / out” issue. Nowhere are the reasons for being in or out of the EU being discussed rationally. Everywhere the need for “reform” is argued. Nowhere is “reform” actually defined. Everywhere hundreds (maybe thousands) of highly paid journalists and politicians are producing acres of crap about who said what, why that might be important and to

Rate this postEven now, when it is obvious to everyone but politicians, journalists and most economists, that “bailouts” don’t work – cannot work – never in a million years would work, do we have emergency meetings between, France, Germany and Greece “to sort out the ‘crisis’”, again. These meetings, being held today, won’t work either because of the refusal to face reality.
