In 2016, the people of the UK were asked to cast a vote on Britain’s membership of the EU. The overall results were as follows:Leave: 17,410,742 (51.9%)Remain: 16,141,241 (48.1%)Total electorate: 46,501,241 Turnout: 72.2% A simple binary choice was given to the British people, should we stay or should we go? (to quote The Clash!) Admittedly it wasn’t a huge majority, and I now believe that … Continue reading Divide And Conquer: The Truth About Brexit
It is ironic that M. Juncker is complaining of “Brexit fatigue”, while the British public are themselves becoming tired of the charade being played out in front of us, just going round and around in circles not getting anywhere. Theresa May desperately wants to get her Withdrawal Agreement signed off, so she can proudly announce that she has “delivered on the referendum result” and “achieved … Continue reading “Brexit fatigue” – sick and tired of our politicians and their lies yet?
In a blaze of triumphant glory, Nigel Farage announced yesterday that the all new “The Brexit Party” had been formally recognised by the Electoral Commission and would be ready to stand candidates in any forthcoming election. The party was founded with my full support and with the intention of fighting the European elections on May 23 if Brexit has not been delivered by then. I … Continue reading The Brexit Party – or “Making Plans For Nigel”
Following the defeat last week in the House Of Commons of Theresa May’s “Withdrawal Agreement” (WA), our MPs are now insisting that the “no-deal” Brexit must be “taken off the table”. One soundbite we keep hearing is: “There is no majority in parliament for a no deal Brexit… “ Ahem, well actually there is. The invoking of ‘Article 50 of the Treaty Of The European … Continue reading Brexit: “No Parliamentary majority for ‘no-deal’”?
Breitbart: “Project Fear Latest: Brexit to Ground Planes, End Sandwich Trade, Cause ‘Super-Gonorrhoea’ Epidemic” 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 … Continue reading “Project Fear” – Scaring us with LIES
My biggest criticism of Theresa May during the so-called Brexit ‘negotiations’ with the EU, is that with her being a ‘Remainer’, the woman has no vision or desire, or even imagination, to envisage what a future Britain could/should look like beyond our withdrawal from the EU. Our Remain-leaning politicians, of which there are a great many, can’t seem to give up the ‘comfort blanket’ of … Continue reading My vision of a post-Brexit Britain
I’ve written in previous posts here about how the Brexit that we voted for is turning into a ‘rebranding charade’, and that the LibDem/Tory/Labour parties are one and the same. So what alternative option is there? UKIP of course! Now, don’t get me wrong, UKIP did/does still have its faults. But under the helm of Gerard Batten, the future does look much brighter, and the … Continue reading Only UKIP can save our country
Anyone who recently signed the Petition “Ensure that the U.K. leaves the EU Single Market & Customs Union.” will have this morning received the following response: The UK is leaving the EU’s Single Market and Customs Union. We are seeking to establish a deep and special partnership with the EU and a new customs arrangement outside the EU’s Customs Union. As the Prime Minister has … Continue reading Brexit ‘rebranded’
I have never been a fan of Tony Blair. Even when he swept into power in 1997 as Prime Minister, I sensed that there was something slimey about him. This was a man who won three General Elections, each time promising the British people he would hold a referendum on the UK’s acceptance of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. And he never did. After he stepped … Continue reading Tony Blair is a hypocrite
On June 23rd 2016, 17.4m people voted in a referendum for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. However it seems our Government and the EU have different ideas on what ‘leaving the EU’ actually means. The talk from Theresa May and David Davis is of a ‘transitional arrangement’, with a wish for ‘frictionless trade’, as well as gushings of ‘deep and special relationship’ … Continue reading Brexit: are we leaving or really staying?
