LIAM HALLIGAN in The Telegraph writes that the case for Brexit remains strong

According to Liam Halligan:

1. The UK's £60bn trade deficit with the EU means powerful German auto producers, French wineries and Italian furniture-makers will make sure that Britain continues to trade with the EU.

2. In 1980, the EU accounted for over 30% of global GDP. 

Now, despite many more member states, the EU accounts for over 30%  of global GDP.

3. Brexit makes sense because 'Europe' isn't working. 

The EU today is slow-growing and tied up in red tape. 

The euro, which 'most economists' told us to join, is doing untold damage. 

Locked in a high-currency straitjacket, Greece and Spain are suffering 40-50% youth unemployment

Italy, having barely grown since the euro's 1999 launch, faces a major banking crisis. 

Unable to depreciate their currencies, such economies are being sacrificed on the altar of 'more Europe'.

The message in the landerette's window says: "Please note, I did not tackle the gunman. And no one shouted Britain First at any time." JO COX FALSE FLAG CONSPIRACY.

4. The UK currently sends 42% of its exports to the EU, sharply down from 55% just five years ago.

The EU is declining as a UK export destination.

5. Treaties including Maastricht and Lisbon have severely diluted British sovereignty. 

The European Commission (with its over-paid, unaccountable bureaucrats) and the European Parliament (a rubber-stamping factory for Commission diktats) are now powerful entities in our national life. 

Trade with the EU will still matter, but in a more inter-connected world, with the UK specialising in 'weightless' services and geography less necessary, Europe isn't economically important enough for us to succumb to a deeply undemocratic supra-national political body in order to trade with it.


6. Studies by the Treasury and the OECD say that UK households will be worse off, with Brexit.

Such 'studies' are designed to scare voters. 

When the euro implodes, the big EU economies - the UK included - will pick up the tab

The UK, free from onerous EU directives and the common tariff on non-EU imports, could grow faster. 

A Brexited Britain would focus more on trade with dynamic emerging markets in Asia and elsewhere. 

The EU suits big UK corporates, banks and professional firms, as Brussels-based lobbying and tortuous regulation keeps smaller challengers at bay. 

That's why so many small and medium-sized firms accounting for much of Britain's creativity and employment back Leave.

(Almost half of Europe’s tech businesses worth more than $1bn were founded in the UK. Read more)

7. If we vote Brexit, other countries will likely hold their own EU votes. 

The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland and Italy could also vote to leave. 

Only then will the eurocrats be forced to move to a looser, less hubristic, more democratic EU.

One focused on trade and co-operation between sovereign nations, not absurd nation-building appealing to elites. 


8. Then there is 'free movement of people' - good in theory but, I'm afraid, in reality naïve and dangerous. 

Massive wage differentials between EU members have driven record UK net migration: over 330,000 last year, double that if gauged by new national insurance numbers. 

When the pace is this fast and getting faster, low-income working people suffer, their wages flattened. 

This isn't about being 'racist' or 'stupid', but being deeply insecure economically – something much of our media class will never understand.

Continued here: the case for Brexit remains strong

In The Telegraph, AMBROSE EVANS-PRITCHARD writes that the Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else 
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard writes:

1. I will cast my vote for withdrawal from the European Union.

It comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error...

We are deciding whether to be guided by a Commission with quasi-executive powers that operates more like the priesthood of the 13th Century papacy than a modern civil service; and whether to submit to a European Court of Justice (ECJ) that claims sweeping supremacy, with no right of appeal...

2. The EU crossed a fatal line when it smuggled through the Treaty of Lisbon, by executive cabal, after the text had already been rejected by French and Dutch voters in its earlier guise.

It is one thing to advance the Project by stealth and the Monnet method, it is another to call a plebiscite and then to override the outcome....

It created a European supreme court with jurisdiction over all areas of EU policy, with a legally-binding Charter of Fundamental Rights that opens the door to anything...

Aangirfan getting ready to vote.

3. Has there ever been a proper airing of how the elected leaders of Greece and Italy were forced out of power and replaced by EU technocrats, perhaps not by coups d'etat in a strict legal sense but certainly by skulduggery?

On what authority did the European Central Bank write secret letters to the leaders of Spain and Italy in 2011 ordering detailed changes to labour and social law, and fiscal policy, holding a gun to their head on bond purchases? ...

4. We are a long way from the triumphalism of the millennium, when the EU was replicating the structures of the US federal government, with an EU intelligence cell and military staff in Brussels led by nine generals, and plans for a Euro-army of 100,000 troops, 400 aircraft and 100 ships to project global power...

5. We are compelled to make our choice at a treacherous moment, when our current account deficit has reached 7% of GDP, the worst in peace-time since records began in 1772 under George III.

We require constant inflows of foreign capital to keep the game going, and are therefore vulnerable to a sterling crisis if foreigners lose confidence.

I am willing to take the calculated risk that our floating currency would act as a benign shock absorber - as devaluation did in 1931, 1992, and 2008 - but it could be a very rough ride. 

As Standard & Poor's warned this week, debts of UK-based entities due over the next 12 months amount to 755pc of external receipts, the highest of 131 rated sovereign states...

One more reason to leave;-

The European Union spends .3 billion Euro on subsidies to wine producers, of which France takes the lion’s share.

Paul Craig Roberts says they Britain leaving the EU could cause other countries to leave too and this could break up NATO reducing the threat of WW3 with Russia. That's a good enough reason to leave in itself.

Thank you for the hearty laugh -

'Aangirfan getting ready to vote' LOL

So, cloistered sisters as well like the 'order of Sorcha Faal'?


There is a suggestion that the real Brexit vote needs to be round 60% of total in order to have enough margin to counter vote rigging & fraud

So hope everyone gets out there on Thursday

Yes, but the situation for Greece's neighbours outside the EU is worse. So what makes you think things would be better for Greece outside the EU? I'd suggest the examples of Ukraine, Egypt and Turkey proves otherwise.
Meanwhile, the fact that the leaders of the Leave campaign are repeatedly mocking sluggish economic growth in the EU while lauding the performance of nations where most of the population are dirt poor speaks volumes for their priorities.
These people are complete charlatans who fear the EU might temper their greed and help ordinary workers.

In practice no country NATO member are allowed to leave the organization and if so "they" activate the "stay behind" operatives, the civil unrest, and all the dirty tactics in the book.

It is necessary a social revolutionary movement like Woodstock 1969.

"a revolutionary movement like Woodstock 1969"

Jesus, that was bad. As soon as you have 30 minutes of spare time, I suggest you to look at some 'conspiracy theory' information about hippie movement and how it was derailed by CIA that offered free LSD to the masses.

NATO has no reason to exist after the USSR demise.

EU is a masonic dream that started with Napoleon.

Banks are giving trashy derivatives to gullible customers, there was a recent case in Italy with a man who killed himself after finding his life's money was down to aero after an investment he wasn't informed about.

Crude US Anti Putin Propaganda at Work

This is a terrific interview of Putin by Charlie Rose, but every now and again the editors have to cut in and add clips to counter what Putin says. These clips are shockingly crude propaganda and I was surprised to see them because they are so bad. But it only occurs in a few places and so it gives the impression that the US media is being fair to Putin. Americans who have had anti Russian propaganda fed to them all their lives are going to believe this crude propaganda.

In the second video Charlie Rose talks about his experience with talking to Putin and it's obvious that he really likes him.

The interview with Putin occurs after a couple of minutes and lasts about twenty minutes.

"Brexit makes sense because 'Europe' isn't working."
The whole world isn't working! Freedom? such a joke in times of the New World Order, we are about to experience the worst worldwide tyranny in history and Britain + Israel are on the top, together hand in hand. Thousands of europeans who have much more in common with the native britains are being discriminated in Britain and threatend with the removal of their Human Rights with this Brexit stupidity and the native britains are being fooled by their own jewish elite through the media.
Brexit is not going to fix anything, you were invaded and fooled long time ago by a non-european sect. On the contrary most of the europeans are your "brothers" and this non-european sect that took power in England long time ago is more than happy about the english euro-xenophobia.
