The outcome of the EU Referendum has resulted in an unforeseen crucial warning that our very democracy is under immediate threat.
The attempts to overturn the result under the guise of “ A People’s Vote”, coupled with the threat of a Communist Government , under the guise of Labour, places this country in the greatest danger since World War Two, when at least we knew who the enemy was.
“Project Fear“ was launched in an attempt to bully anyone considering voting Leave, to vote Remain, and continue to be controlled by the unelected
Commissars of the EU. This attack, on those wanting to regain our sovereignty, failed, much to the horror of the establishment, including the EU.
David Cameron announced that his Government would accept the outcome and would act accordingly. He then jumped ship and in effect, we were left with a Cabinet consisting mainly of Remainers who have proved incapable, or unwilling to negotiate with the EU, which has no intention of negotiating at all.
Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt quite rightly has accused this undemocratic organisation as a replacement for the Soviet Union.
The negotiating team should have included the vastly experienced Crawford Falconer, our Chief Trade Negotiation Adviser, and Sir Bill Cash MP and Nigel Farage.
The conflict within the Conservative Government is matched by that in the Labour Party whose clear intention is to attempt to topple the Government, despite the fact that comrades Corbyn and McDonnell have always been anti- EU.
Business organisations, the CBI and Chambers of Commerce, who have been part of “ Project Fear”, have now launched another “Project Fear” at the prospect of a Labour Government, as outlined at the conference in Liverpool. They estimate that the nationalisation of utilities alone would add an extra £2000 to average household bills, in addition to rail, post office, and PFI contracts.
John McDonnell is proposing that they would repeal many employment laws and reinstate collective bargaining and flying pickets. The plan to take 10% of the shares of a limited company with over 250 employees has not been thought through.
The company must be listed in the UK and this means that Aldi and Lidl could not be raided nor Jaguar Land Rover, owned by Indian company Tata Motors.
Employees would not be able to trade shares but would receive dividends up to a maximum of £500 each. The Treasury would collect payments above the cap, placing them in a national fund. So much for employee benefits.
Much has been made of the “close margin” of 52% Leave and 48% Remain in the EU Referendum but this basis was not challenged before the result. Closer to home, Laura Smith, who was elected as Labour MP for Crewe and Nantwich in 2017, received 47.11% of the vote, against 47.03 by the sitting MP Edward Timpson. With this huge margin, she attended the Liverpool Conference and received a standing ovation when she proposed a General Strike in an attempt to topple the Government.
The Labour mantra of “REBUILDING BRITAIN FOR THE MANY NOT THE FEW”, demonstrates the sheer hypocrisy of the Momentum controlled political party.
The current membership of Trades Unions is about 7.5 million, of which around 6 million are in the public sector. This compares with a joint total of over 12 million by the end of the 1970s.
In reality, many union members do not now automatically vote for the Labour Party and as a percentage of adults eligible to vote in a general election, ie in December 2017, 46,148,000, union membership represents 15.33%.
There is another more serious union-related situation relating to Defence.
Messrs Corbyn and McDonnell have constantly shown their allegiance to a wide range of terrorist groups and have refused to accept that comrade Putin had anything to do with the Salisbury poisoning. They clearly do not recognise that Defence is the first duty of a government to its people.
It has been disclosed that Labour is working on a plan to scrap Trident without falling out with unions over job losses, by moving the workers to other highly skilled jobs.
There are around 11,500 workers at three major locations in Rosyth, Barrow-in-Furness and Devonport and whilst all jobs are important, the intention to abandon this crucial protection, by this cynical procedure, is another affront to democracy.
Following his election as the Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn appointed on 8 November 2016, Fabian Hamilton, MP for Leeds North East as Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament. A rather strange appointment as there is no Government post to shadow
Mr Hamilton is working on a “peace doctrine” and a 25-page outline has been shown to Jeremy Corbyn who hopes that it will have the backing of the Shadow Cabinet, paving the way to scrap the missile project altogether if he were to win power.
This would, of course, lead to a growth industry in the manufacture of flags with a growing need of white flags to join the red flags.
Regrettably, successive governments have failed to address many of the outdated outcomes of capitalism. The answer to bad capitalism isn’t less capitalism but good capitalism.
However, what successful socialist regimes can we regard as the utopia for the working people? Venezuela is the latest disaster but we can also look back in horror at over 50 million deaths under Chairman Mao and over 20 Million in Stalin’s Gulags.
The economic consequences of a communist government would make those of the worst case Brexit, pale into insignificance.
The question of membership of the EU requires a whole new consideration by all those pressing us to remain, with the revelation of a secret document FCO30/1048 which has remained locked away for almost five decades under Official Secrets Act rules.
It was prepared by an unknown author, a senior civil servant in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office(FCO) and advised the British Government to cover up the realities of EU membership so that the time the public realised what was happening it would be too late.
This is proof that successive governments have continued to lie about the original concept of a “Common Market” and the referendum to remain was based on lies as shown by this document. Our governments have continued to cede sovereignty to the EU either in ignorance or part of the deceit.
Arch Remoaners from all parties, must check this out and consider why they are MPs if they don’t actually want Westminster to be in charge of this country.
I believe that our top legal brains, outside of the EU, should consider whether,
the United Kingdom is legally a member state and whether we need to continue Brexit discussions, as opposed to the so-called negotiations.
Answers on a postcard, please.
