Day One of the Official Campaign – Brexit

image001

 

Yesterday saw Boris Johnson speaking at a Leave campaign event in Manchester.  As always, he was ready with the memorable phrase, comparing the Remain Campaign to the notorious remarks of jeweller Gerald Ratner, which wiped half a billion from the value of his company.  Like Ratner (says Boris) the Remain Campaign has a dodgy product which they don’t really believe in themselves (as evident in Jeremy Corbyn’s EU speech), and of which they are secretly ashamed.  Yet they still try to pass it off on the unsuspecting public.

Never short of hard-hitting similes, Boris also likened voting Remain to “being locked in a mini-cab with a dodgy sat-nav and a driver who speaks no English”.   The Mirror describes Boris as “a joke that has ceased to be funny”.  Personally I find him hilarious – and also rather effective.

Michael Gove in Nottingham: Michael Gove spoke at a rally in Nottingham, saying Britain would be “stronger, safer and more prosperous” outside the EU.

George Osborne’s broken record:  Osborne repeated his warning that Brexit could cause market volatility (a small price to pay for freedom and democracy) and could also lead to a lower Pound (exporters will be grateful) and possibly higher interest rates (savers will be glad of that). Yes George.  Brexit could also lead to lower prices, cheaper energy, faster growth, more jobs.  And freedom and self-determination.

“Brexit pressure mounts on Cameron”

The FT headlines “Brexit pressure mounts on Cameron”, reporting that Ken Clarke, that old stalwart of the pro-Brussels movement, said “Cameron will not last 30 seconds after an OUT vote”.  For once I’m inclined to agree with Ken.  Meantime Tory Eurosceptics like Bernard Jenkin were issuing dire warnings of the consequences for the Conservative Party if Britain votes to remain in the EU.

The Express nails its colours to the mast

Under a massive headline “STICK IT TO THE EU”, theExpress offers a free window poster for Brexit. http://www.express.co.uk/comment/expresscomment/661551/Eu-referendum-sticker-Vote-Leave-Nigel-Farage-Brexit No doubt where they stand, then.

The Blair Rich Project

After the Panama Papers, the innuendo about Cameron’s off-shore bonds, and the farce of Corbyn’s failure to tell HMRC about his three pensions, The Times now takes aim at Tony Blair, devoting its whole front page to “The Blair Rich Project”.  If Cameron has recently been choking over his Weetabix, this could well have our Tony phoning his lawyers over the Œufs Bénédict.

Greeks shop for guns as migrant concerns rise

The Telegraph reports that Greeks are buying hunting rifles amid concerns over unrest among the many thousands of migrants building up in the country.  Let’s hope this is not a sign of things to come.

    Isn’t there a balance, in not being taken-in but wanting to find hope, where hope is due? I can’t think Brexit is an elaborate ‘all on the same side’. And Boris etc, all play-along for show. It’s hard to reconcile, because of what the top lot, must know about the bigger picture but consciences exist and maybe, this is their ‘do something’ in the face of ‘the cabal’. Somehow, we have enough freedom to overturn. They could have threatened all opposition to exit, not that I suppose it matters that much but looking at the stay-camp, appears this is, the behind the scenes much preferred.

    Economics beyond help, we should view what’s better, (not sure ‘best’ is the right word), once the crashing begins. Brexit, I’d say. For what it might be worth. A landslide to achieve. Would then be used/excused as the reason. If nothing more prominent said cause. And hasty switch-abouts, if this was the case, to get us back ‘in’ the E.U. (depending on how ‘out’ we really are?).

    Underlying, is the symbolic ‘no’ towards more one-world ordering and the E.U.’s heritage in this. Taking back responsibility, and more than ever, people talking politics. Referendum a gate-way.

    Perhaps we… ok ‘me’, should see as this as opportunity to go to any/if there are, related Referendum meetings, find like-minded more/awake and encourage tap-ing, talking… whatever it takes.

    Hope with legs on.

      Yes Coudenhove Kalergi. I do not see the Tribes of Israel choosing to weaken their genetic dharma yet it is promoted for the Goyim.
      Anyone else fed up to the hilt being part of these freaks social experiments?
      Anyone else fed up with being a guinea pig for vaccines that have never been shown to work but most definately are causing Autism ?
      Anyone else fed up with the GM toxins and Glyphosate in our food and water supply ?
      The first Supermarket to go totally Organic and Glyphosate free would be the fastest growing business ever witnessed, That I am sure of. Probably get bought out and closed down in lightning fast order as well.
      We would do better to Brexit and join Russia in going Organic totally than stay in an EU run by a bunch of self serving Humanity hating Mongrels easily bought and paid off by Corporations run by Tribes whom believe themselves chosen special people that educate their young at jew school that they are the Master race.
      I hope our establishment do not use the voting machines made by the same.

    Well, the insults usually say more about the people making them, don’t they? If ever there was a charlatan who didn’t really believe in what he is saying it is Boris Johnson. And anyone who believes his insults and waffle about democracy is very foolish – he’s just been installed to keep the establishment in power whatever the vote.

  4. Tapestry says:

    My enemy’s enemy is my friend. For these two months Boris Johnson is a friend. In earlier games he was an enemy. Maybe he will be an enemy once more in the future. BUt for now we need to try and win the referendum, however little trust we have in the system overall.

    Aid worker warns Britain many migrants have ‘no intention of living under Christian law’

    REFUGEES in Europe’s biggest migrant camps are routinely dishing out anti-Christian slurs to the kind-hearted volunteers who are supporting them, aid workers have told Express.co.uk.

    Christian aid worker warns over refugees
    A Christian aid worker has warned Britain to be tough when enforcing their own values on refugees
    Migrants take food and support from charity workers before insulting them in the next breath, he said.

    Charity employees have seen first hand the desperation and devastation of the migrant crisis caused by record numbers of people displaced from the Middle East and Africa.

    Since June 2015 the millions of asylum seekers fleeing Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa have had a huge impact on European member states who have opened their doors to them.

    The humanitarian effort is huge with thousands of charities working across Europe to feed, help and direct them.

    However, speaking frankly about integration and resettlement, one aid worker warned European nations, and Britain in particular, must handle immigration with a firm hand.

    The aid worker from Serbia, who asked to remain anonymous and has worked on the crisis in the Balkans, speaks Arabic and is often mistaken for a Muslim.

    Because of this he has been able to hear and understand scathing remarks made against aid workers providing help to refugees.

    These include the charity workers being branded “filthy Christian kuffars” – a derogatory Arabic word meaning non-believer.

    Now, the aid worker has warned European countries to get tough or face the consequences.

    He said: “The difference is I know these people, I hear them. I’m sorry, I have to say it, I hear what they say when they speak to their own people – not what they say in English.

    “I am not saying don’t take them, I am saying your country needs to be strong, get tough.

    “What happens is you let them build mosques and you let them practice their religion and then what? They don’t want to live by your rules. “You don’t know what is going on in mosques.

    “You have to make it happen or it won’t be your country anymore. They have no intention of living under Christian law.”

    Many aid workers in the camps, which are spread out across the Balkans, have been there since last year when thousands were arriving every day.

    Amid the chaos they spoke to hundreds of families from all over the Middle East.

    The charity employee once used his own money to pay for a phone for a young girl who had been separated from her husband.

    But when he went to ask her how the call went she refused to touch him.

    He said: “She said ‘please, no I don’t want to have to shower again’.

    “I asked her what she meant and she told me she had found out I was a Christian so she doesn’t want to touch me.”

    The aid worker has heard many people branded “kuffar” in the camps in passing, and some, mistaking him for Muslim have slated his colleagues.

    Another Christian aid worker provided a group of Afghani men with new clothes, food and water when they arrived near Croatia.

    He said: “After taking this from her, they refused to shake her hand, calling her ‘dirty Christian kuffar’.

    “This is how they repay you for help. You have to deal with this properly. Everyone here is helping. I am helping but that doesn’t mean changing your country for them.

    “They have to learn to respect Christian neighbours and Christian law.”
