Ever since we (the UK) dared to vote for Brexit we’ve been bombarded with pro-EU messages by various Remain supporting personages and organisations. The idea is to convince us that we’re hopelessly out of touch xenophobic bigots and morons AND that our vote to leave the hallowed EU was the biggest mistake ever made in a referendum. The actions of the leading lights of the EU, since the Brexit vote, have made me ever more certain that my vote for Brexit was the right thing to do. Not just for me but for the UK and for the rest of the EU. Here’s one example…. Chancellor Merkel (Germany), President Hollande (France) and Prime Minster Renzi (Italy) had themselves a mini-summit to[…]

I’ve noticed that a lot of Remainers have used the idea that the EU, or its ancestors, has been responsible for a lack of European conflict since World War II. Now call me old fashioned but I was under the impression that Europe, okay Western Europe, has been kept conflict free due to the actions and existence of NATO rather than the European Coal and Steel Community, or the European Economic Community or even the EU itself. After World War II Germany was partitioned and shared out like a birthday cake – although one that had been bombed to bits and left in ruins.

…..is for the UK to leave. Sounds crazy? Perhaps. But I have noticed that much of the Remain campaigning seems designed to upset and annoy rather than encourage waverers to vote for the UK to continue as a member of the EU. Just look at what the Eurocrats, political leaders and even the IMF have been saying: If we dare to leave the EU then our economy will die, World War III might result, Western Civilisation might collapse overnight, the EU might disintegrate (I actually believe that “threat”), the UK will become a political and economic backwater and we will be placed at the end of the line when it comes to trade deals etc. In addition, various EU types[…]

You have to hand it to the Russians, or should I say Mr Putin? They/he have completely wrong footed the so called Western Powers over the Ukraine Crisis. Watching the news has become an almost surreal experience, like watching old newsreels but in colour and with better commentaries. But while the imagery and words are much improved I cannot help but think that I’m seeing a reworked version of the 1930s. A charismatic nationalist leader using what I’d call a jumped up pretext to justify moving troops into a neighbouring country. Is the word “annexation” about to rear its ugly head? I am left wondering if we’re seeing the start of a long overdue European war? Putin may have correctly[…]
