The steady diet of Brexit scare stories is continuing, with officials claiming the country could be overtaken by super-gonorrhoea and other infectious diseases.
The claims follow revelations from a Tory MP close to Theresa May that the Government plans to “scare people witless” over the summer about the supposed consequences of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, which would see Britain leaving the European Union without a formal exit agreement and deal with it on normal third country terms, as it already does with countries like Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
This is in order to win support for Mrs May’s ultra-soft Chequers plan for Brexit, which would see Britain making a raft of concessions to Brussels on membership of the Single Market for industrial goods and agricultural products, adoption of a so-called ‘common rulebook’ based on EU law, effective submission to the EU court, and more.
The aforementioned Tory MP told BBC Newsnight that Project Fear 2.0 will involve the release of some 70 official documents describing dire-sounding contingency plans for ‘No Deal’, and it seems unlikely that the sudden spike in disaster stories from other sources is unrelated.
Get used to it, there’s going to be more of these to come in the following weeks!
Project Fear: wow, just wow. How low can these people go? If Britain leaves the EU without a ‘deal’, we arrive at the same position that every other country that is NOT part of the EU is in. How on earth do those countries cope? Talk of having to stockpile food and medicines is overblown downright lies.
If anything, I think it will just be used as an excuse for the big supermarkets to raise their prices.
It’s a great opportunity to revive farming again in our own country. Instead of being paid by the EU to ‘do nothing’ (the real purpose of farm subsidies) our farmers can get down to business, ramp up their production, and the demand will create itself.
British beef, British lamb, British chicken, British pork, British vegetables, British fruit etc etc. No need to worry so much about export markets. And think of the jobs that will be created!
And if the farmers are struggling to fill those vacancies, instead of importing cheap labour from Europe, how about we introduce schemes where we ‘mobilise’ our own labour force? Support the unemployed with financial assistance to help them relocate where the jobs are.
Of course, positive visions we can’t be having! How dare I suggest the UK would be better off outside the EU! I must believe Project Fear, and get scared that I’ll starve because there will be no food etc etc…
And that is the ultimate goal: because Theresa May’s ‘Chequers Deal’ is so lousy, rather than presenting the ‘No Deal’ scenario as ‘win-win’ for the UK, people must be otherwise frightened into thinking that her lousy deal is the ‘best option’ for us.
And of course we also have the Remainers clamouring for another referendum, or “peoples vote”.
This is pure propaganda, which I believe is just the starting point, and there may well be another referendum, which this Project Fear campaign is just softening us up for.
The EU is not willing to negotiate a ‘good deal’ for the UK. And our Government, led by Remainer-in-Chief Theresa May, seems unwilling to carry out the result of the last referendum, in which a majority of those who took part voted to Leave the EU.
And now because the Remainers still can’t get their way, they are resorting to LIES.
