Aggression is born from anxiety and fear. We are witnessing some very unpleasant activities in the public domain in this immediate post Brexit period, it appears to be in two main area’s, one is the resentment by the disappointed youth and the other is by the more extreme right-wing elements of the British public.
Looking at the disappointed youth, unfortunately for them they have grown up in a system that has let them down. Those of us that grew up in that post second world war pre-common market period will remember that you had a much harder task to earn your way to a better education. In the 1960’s it was also means tested as just over one in 10 (12%) went to university. There were no student loans, fees were paid in full by local education authorities and there was a means-tested annual grant up of to £340 to cover living costs. On to the 1970’s, one in seven 18-year-olds were in higher education in 1972. That figure fell back to one in eight by the end of the decade as university funding was cut and vice-chancellors refused to squeeze the amount spent on each student. Many 16-year-olds opted not to go into the sixth form because there was no guarantee that after two years of A-levels a place could be found for them at university. The grant for students increased from £380 to £1,430 in 1980.
Quite simply it was a hard-earned privilege to go to university in those years unless your family had money you did not go to university, you had to face the facts that you had to go to work and earn your living, there was no god given right to further education, gap years, foreign travel etc. you were grateful for what you could get that’s a fact. Todays youth has had everything given to them on a plate, successive governments have made it easier to get them into further education even if the grades required have not met the standard, this has been done to manipulate the unemployment figures, the number of soft subject courses has grown to facilitate this policy.
So now we have more extreme right-wing elements of the British public, People will quite rightly be concerned when they see massive changes to society and they feel that they are being ignored by the government. The extreme right-wing supporters will seize this and try to use it for their own agenda, the people have spoken and are concerned about immigration so it is now time for the government to act swiftly to address this issue, they must give the people what they want which is more control over immigration. It will be in no-ones interest to let the right-wing grasp the nettle.
In the cold light of day there are some hard facts we must understand, the younger elements of society need to grow up quickly, work hard for what they get, respect democracy and family and most importantly listen to those that have gone before you and have prevented you having to suffer the hardships of their past. Your political views should not be swayed by the educational system bureaucrats, you need to get out in the real world and earn a living before you are qualified to form an opinion.
I don’t blame people for being resentful of migrants, it’s is our governments fault for not listening to the electorate, we are sick of being called racist’s & bigots, we could not get our voice heard but we have now had our day and the government had better listen, Labour and the Conservative party should be very worried as when we come to the next general election they will in all probability be a spent force. I cannot see the Lib-Dems being a threat but UKIP well that’s another story, Nigel Farage has proven true to his word as this man has done more to get the country to this point than anyone else and people will remember that, UKIP will grow and be a major party.
So the government need to understand that if you poke the hornet’s nest you will get stung, hornets are often considered pests much like the establishment have concidered the electorate, but be warned they will aggressively guard their homes and communities when threatened! Don’t blame the Britsh public for protecting there homeland.
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they’d be singing so happily,
Joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they sent me away to teach me how to be sensible,
Logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, intellectual, cynical.
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man.
Won’t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.
Now watch what you say or they’ll be calling you a radical,
Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won’t you sign up your name, we’d like to feel you’re
Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!
At night, when all the world’s asleep,
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man.
Won’t you please, please tell me what we’ve learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am.
Songwriters: DAVIES, RICHARD / HODGSON, ROGER
The words above mean a great deal to me, they are an anthem of my youth. I was 21 in 1979 when the Logical song was released by Supertramp. Britain had been in Europe four years and I had been working in the local steel works for five years but something was wrong, I remember going into work on one particular night shift and before we were allowed to start work we were instructed to go over to the staff canteen to watch a video, the company was telling us that we were loosing money.
During the video presentation which was presented by Brian Redhead of the BBC, we were told that Britain had been selling scrap steel to Europe so that it was stockpiled & then we were having to buy it back at a higher price. That was not logical! We also gave away our technology in special steel making to the Germans. A year before I started at the steel works which was 1974 there had been around 2,500 employees and by the early eighties that had dropped to about 900 due to prices being forced down.
I feel bitterly about this mighty work force that had being depleted, good honest hard-working men & women who lost a way of life which in most cases had been handed down father to son. We had instilled in us a great work ethic.
The rot had started in Europe but we did not realise until it was too late, we did not have the communications we have today, the social media which would have forged communities together to fight for their cause. some years later we saw some of that spirit coming out with the miners strike.
The rot had run deep, we allowed some of our families to lose the work ethic during those dark days. People had lost the will to fight but did not know why, benefits had become a way of life for many. some generations have grown up where not a single member of their family had ever held down a job & that also includes my family.
The first half of the logical song resonated with my life until my mid to late forties, Logical, responsible, practical, I was mortgaged. Then on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001 the world changed for me, my family and everyone else. Our world had closed up. Now move on to 2016 & the words of the song again “Now watch what you say or they’ll be calling you a radical, Liberal, fanatical, criminal” “Won’t you sign up your name, we’d like to feel you’re acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!” Supertramps words are so very prophetic.
Europe are wanting to gag us from using free speech to voice our opinions on the ideologies of the migrants that are trying to invade our shores. I say we should stand up for ourselves not for Europe, we have stood up for Europe on a number of occasions and it has got us nothing in return.
We only have one choice really, Vote Leave on 23rd June it’s the only logical choice.
I had the article below forwarded to me from a friend at work who had it sent to him via Face book.
If you’re undecided you should read this
On June 23rd, I am expected to make one of the most important decisions in my life which could affect my children and grandchildren in a way I don’t even understand yet. I am an average guy with a family, a house, and a normal lifestyle. I am sort of Joe average. Some people have asked me recently about how I’m voting, mainly because they don’t know themselves and want another view or opinion. I’ve actually been quite interested in the opportunity to vote in the referendum and I’ve done some research and a lot of thinking and I know how I’m going to vote and why.
I am however, concerned about the broadcasting from our elected government. They also know what they want and why but we, the people, need our government to provide us with a balanced view so we, the people, can make our own mind up. For that to happen, we need to understand all the good points, and all the bad points. At the moment, I can understand why some people are gripped by fear that the world will end if we leave the EU.
But will it?
Well, I see 3 main areas, which I thought about. Political, economic and immigration.
Before I go any further, I have already accepted one thing. Any change will result in good things and not so good things. I can’t think of one example, which has changed, which hasn’t created some benefits and burdens.
Let’s get the easy one’s out of the way….
Political. – As a UK citizen, I want my laws determined by the MP’s we elected as a democracy should be. Our Lords are the regulators of the decisions made in the commons and I’m good with that. What I don’t want are laws imposed on me by people who weren’t elected and are trying to find a “One size fits all” solution to many different countries who all have different tolerances, expectations and cultures.
Of all of the imposed laws from the EU, I can live without a law that stipulates that cucumbers must not have a bend in excess of 10 degrees. Some of our politicians quite fancy a career in the EU after their own political career has come to an end in the UK and this is the reason why I think some of them are so keen to stay.
Economic – This is where I see, and accept, that things will be a little worse before they get better. Let’s get one thing clear though. Big business leaders only want one thing. More sales and bigger profits. That’s not wrong, it’s their job, and what shareholders expect. Quite simply, if the companies they’re running don’t make more money every year, they lose their job.
Imagine owning the only supermarket in a town where for the past 10 years, more and more people have come to live there and for the next 10 years, more and more people will arrive. If you owned that supermarket, you’d be rubbing your hands together. Now imagine that someone said that no more houses could be built and some people had to leave. You wouldn’t want that to happen so would disagree. And that’s what the impact will be, less people spending less money is not good for business. You can’t blame them for voting for Remain, but they’re only concerned about themselves.
I’ve also thought about the impact on house prices and rent. In 2000, I remember renting a massive house while I was in between house moves. The rent was £750 per month. Since the bulk addition of several European counties in 2004, rents have consistently increased beyond the rate of inflation.
This is easy to understand, more people, not the equal number of more house increases competition for housing and increased rents. Increased rents mean better profits for landlords so people start to buy houses to rent out. Competition for houses increases which increases house prices.
And we all think this is great that the house some of us bought in the 90’s is now worth 3 times what we bought it for, we’re rich! But then I think of my children who can’t afford to buy a house now and I sometimes wonder whether they ever will. I was chatting to a guy at work last week who at the age of 32 had bought his first modest house with a 30 year mortgage. He was so pleased. But that doesn’t sit with me right. I bought my house (3 bed semi) when I was 22 with a 5% deposit and 3.5 times my salary. If the average salary is £22k, £77k doesn’t buy you anything now.
It might be an unpopular thought, but I want house prices to come down so my children can buy a 3 bed semi with a 5% deposit for 3.5 times their salary. And house prices will only come down if there is less competition and more houses built. I’m afraid you can’t achieve that by staying in the EU with an unlimited amount of potential people able to live and work here.
Also, on an economic front, there are too many people telling us that our economy will fall dramatically as we’ll have to negotiate new trade agreements with all the current EU countries. And let’s not forget Obama telling us all that we’ll be at the back of the queue with a trade deal with the USA.
Firstly, we’re a bigger importer than exporter, it’s always been that way. We buy more than we sell so therefore our buying power is more important than our selling power. For sure, some UK goods might be less attractive if import taxes are imposed on them from the EU if we leave but our customer is the world.
We have some of the most prestigious brands in the world. In no particular order, the one’s which come to mind are JCB, Rolls Royce, Burberry, Hotpoint, HSBC, Barclays, Tesco etc etc. I think we can confidently go global. Why do we want the EU to negotiate on our behalf?
And now for immigration. I have no idea why we’re all afraid to even bring up the subject but it does have a big impact and affects us all personally, socially and economically.
Over the past 12 years, since our immigration started to boom, I’ve met a lot of people who have moved to the UK to live and work. In general, I find the people I’ve met to be honest, hardworking people with families who intend to make the most of the opportunity of living and working in the UK.
Our service industry is better for it, with many EU migrants choosing to work in many different sectors from coffee shops, to supermarkets. We’ve benefitted from many skills including the main building trades. Many trained nurses and doctors have joined our NHS. No doubt many more have arrived who have filled a skills gap we just don’t have and we, as a society have and are benefitting.
But there’s a problem that comes with this.
As a UK citizen, my personal belief is that the UK is the most attractive country in the EU. If you create a law that says that any citizen can freely choose where in the EU they can live and work, many will naturally choose to move to what they believe will give them the best opportunity to better themselves. Nothing wrong with that, it’s completely normal behaviour.
But if that country does not invest in infrastructure and services at the same rate of population growth two things happen. Things go up in price e.g. houses. And services become overstretched e.g. Doctors, schools, hospitals, roads etc.
The other thing I have an issue with is the type of immigration we have. I am absolutely convinced that we need immigration to thrive and prosper. Not just to ensure we have the right skills but also to make our society richer.
OK, so I can have my car hand washed for £3 just about anywhere now but how many unskilled people do we really need? I don’t think we need any. We have around 2 million of them sitting at home most days looking for a job. The broader problem is that we have created a society that believes not working is a choice and if they can’t be an instant celebrity, they refuse to work for minimum wage. We could solve that problem if we really wanted to.
I also see communities within communities. There are street’s I walk down now that I used to walk down 12 years ago where I only ever hear foreign languages being spoken and European shops selling European goods to European people. That doesn’t feel like an integrated society and I don’t really like it.
I want immigration, but I want to attract people from all over the world who have skills we need and who can add value to the place I live and work. I want those people to choose to come here because they like the values we live by, and want to be part of it.
I also don’t like the laws which are imposed on us that says we have to pay all EU immigrants the same social security benefits as UK citizens when we have no control over where that money is spent. At least the 2 million people sitting at home claiming job seekers allowance are spending that money here, benefitting our own economy but I can’t get my head around how a working father from the EU can claim working families tax credits, family allowance, income support and send as much back to his family in his native country as he chooses. When the minimum wage in the UK is 10 times higher than some eastern European countries and benefits are higher, how can we allow that money to be used in another economy where the cost of living is a fraction of the UK?
Imagine being a call handler in a call centre, a pretty average job on £18k to £20k a year. Now imagine another country you could move to, to do the same job for £200k a year. It’s an opportunity not to be missed. You’d live as cheaply as possible and send every spare penny home.
There are many people who are doing just that in the UAE. But the UAE are a growing country who need and want our skills. They’ve already stated to create laws themselves to ensure emirate people are at the front of the queue for jobs and skills. And there’s no handouts or public services, everything is private sector and when you have no work, it’s goodbye.
I completely understand why Churchill had his vision for a “United States of Europe” after world war two. When created, the common market was brilliant and has served us well over the decades. But nothing lasts forever and things change.
I don’t remember agreeing to or voting for all the things which have been imposed on me. And I certainly don’t like what’s ahead of me either.
So on balance I’m voting to leave the EU. I accept it will have an economic impact. My house may reduce in value, some people may lose their jobs, the £ may fall in value so holidays might cost a bit more.
But if my children can buy a house and pay off a mortgage within their working life, if their children can go to a school that they choose, if I can get an appointment at the doctors or hospital treatment and not sit in hours of traffic every day then I’ll be happy with that.
And in the future, when the UK is back to being the greatest country in the world that attracts the most talented people from all over the world who create the industries and brands that create job opportunities for the future generations, I can look back and feel that I did the right thing.
#Voteleave #Remain #Brexit
it’s been the aim of the West to stop the spread of communism for decades, wars have been fought over it, families have been separated by it both in Europe, the Far East and elsewhere around the world. The Americans have a deep mistrust of the communist yet the American president is suggesting that Britain remains in the European Union which is as close to a communist state as you can get.
It cannot be denied that there are similarities between the ever-expanding EU and the ideology of the old Soviet Union perhaps Brussels is trying to revive the old idea of Eurocommunism, it’s well understood that sovereignty disappears under communism, we all know now what happened to the Russian royal family during the early part of the nineteenth century. We would like to think that kind of thing would not happen in this day and age, but the European Union is not a supporter of Sovereignty and history has a habit of repeating itself.
I suspect the vast majority of British subjects are in favour of British Sovereign rule, sovereignty is understood in jurisprudence as the full right and power of a governing body to govern itself without any interference from outside sources or bodies. This should be our primary concern as our national identity and British society has been founded and nurtured of these principles.
I admit that I am not a royalist by any stretch of the imagination but I would sooner be a royal subject than a state subject without freedom of speech and thought. The freedom to elect our government is our right and it should remain so. Eventually if we stay within the European union that right will be removed, this process has already begun in Brussels with the unelected Jean-Claude Juncker at the head of the European Commission along with a further a further 27 unelected commissioners.
We cannot be complacent about the European Union, if we care about our families it is our duty to learn from past history. you only have to look at the misery and suffering that came about due to communist regimes around the world. Don’t let Britain fall into that trap remember you owe it to your forefathers for giving you the freedoms you have now and to your progeny to ensure they remain free to live in a democracy not a version of a communist state.
Vote Leave on 23rd June 2016
I wonder how many of you actually watched the Eurovision song contest last night, I must admit my household didn’t as we fully expected us not to win. I have said for a while now the results could be used as a barometer of who supports Britain in Europe.
If you read todays Telegraph article on who voted for whom it is clear that Britain is not well liked, at least not for its song writing ability. Two very telling graphs show something very interesting. If you look at how what I now loosely call the British public voted you can see that at the top of the list is Lithuania, Poland & Bulgaria. Then look at how each of those countries voted, not a single vote for Britain!
It is clear that the Eurovision song contest is now being politicised, but whats more clear is that the our vote is being influenced by our migrant population. Furthermore what great shift in the tectonic plates suddenly moved the rather large continent Australia within Europe, It’s all getting a bit silly really isn’t it? The next thing you know there will be a man in a frock with a beard winning, oh! wait a minute that wasn’t my imagination was it?
The only love that our eastern european friends have for Britain is the love of stripping our benefit system, education and health care resources. They are taking the future away from our youth by undercutting the labour market then sending money back to their home land on the back of the taxes we have paid in to the system for many long years as indigenous Britain’s.
As part of my role at work I have to review and update our British Standards library and this week I had a notification email from the British Standards Institute informing me of updates and possible changes.
One that caught my eye is what’s called a “Draft for public comment” the document DPC: 16 / 30342018 DC is a proposed change to BS EN 60811-501 which describes test methods for sheathing compounds of electrical cables.
Whats so interesting about what to most people appear to be a very boring document? well there are some very interesting remarks contained within, First is the last date for receipt of comments: 23rd June 2016, next a warning that the draft must not be regarded as or used as a British standard and that the draft is not current beyond 23rd June 2016.
The introduction to the draft goes on to say that the standard is based on discussions in which the UK has taken an active part. Then there is this following statement. UK Vote Please indicate whether you consider the UK should submit a negative (with reasons) or positive vote on this draft.
This proposal was signed off by a representative of the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) going by the name H. Myland of Germany. I think you would agree that there is a lot of coincidence here with the date of the EU referendum being the same as the defining date for the comments submission. The committee is clearly trying to ask for good reasons to exclude the UK having a voice on the committee.
It just makes me and my employer more confident that we are doing the right thing by voting to leave on 23rd June.
Government climb down over forced academies plan in England.
Today we hear of yet another U-turn by the conservative government, but of course it is not really a U-turn. Today on 5 live Eric Pickles said ‘this is not a u turn’ in reference to the climb-down.
The government is once again running scared of industrial action by teachers & head teachers and rightly so, give these people the funding and the tools to do their job instead of asking for more than they can give with the education cuts. This is just another example of their poorly made decisions, how can the Education Secretary Nicky Morgan save face on this one?
A survey in January of nearly 900 mainly secondary headteacher’s and senior leaders by the Association of School and College Leaders confirms that more than 38% of those who completed the survey made redundancies in the previous 12 months, with even more staff losses hidden by the under-the-radar non-replacement of teaching (70%) and support roles (80%).
The country is sick and tired of the nanny state, the meddling by ill-informed officials taking orders from Brussels. Todays local election results have shown that there is a storm brewing. Beware Mr Cameron I think it maybe that perfect storm that sinks you and your government. Every one of your unpopular decisions of which there are many diminishes your credibility and your friends in Brussels will not be able to bail you out or throw you a life line.
June 23rd is looking more likely to be your judgment day. Better get practicing for that new job with the brush and shovel in the stable, I’m sure there will be a great big steaming mound of the brown stuff left now the horse has bolted!!
In the last two days David Cameron said the UK will take in more unaccompanied Syrian refugee children from Europe. He also said to the House of Commons Liaison Committee “I will be absolutely frank with you, I don’t think the accession of Turkey to the European Union is remotely on the cards. I don’t think it will happen for decades.
Both of these statements should worry us, the first is worrying because it is clear that we are clearly incapable of caring for children who’s parents have given up on them or have died as shown by the recent case of little Keegan Downer murdered by her foster mother Kandyce Dower, the child had been repeatedly beaten during her short life. it is unbelievable that our social services, who should have been making regular reviews of the child’s welfare failed to do so. How can we expect to look after the extra Syrian children that David Cameron wants to allow in to the UK when we cannot look after our own.
The decision to take these extra children should be left until we can be certain that we can review our child protection departments.
David Cameron’s statement to the House of Commons Liaison Committee should not be believed, the E.U.has proven time and time again that the opinion of the UK government is worth nothing when it comes to decision’s about EU policies. So with the referendum looming up in under 50 days, Cameron and his Pro-EU friends are running scared. They are desperate to take Turkey out of the referendum equation and defuse the panic it would cause if Turkey floods Britain with it’s unwanted hoards.
Don’t be fooled, unless we get back control of our own country we will be at the beck and call of Brussels at all levels until they have gained every ounce – sorry gram of power over us and we are assimilated into the United States of Europe.
If we remain in the European Union we won’t be able to use our own resources to look after our own children never mind the extra thousands proposed, in probability we will not even have an NHS left to look after them should they fall ill.
Did you realize that there is something in writing, that is formal that proves the NHS will be subject to a trade agreement. It is in a document that was filed in the European Parliament library in June 2015, specifically about TTIP. It says: “The EU reserves the right to adopt or maintain any measure with regard to the provision of all education, health or social services which receive public funding or state support in any form.”
As the referendum approaches David Cameron’s government should not be allowed to push through any decisions that are likely to affect the limited resources we currently have left. Better he wait until after the country has spoken on 23rd June.
Of course I can be controversial and ask why doesn’t some of the rich middle eastern countries take them in where they will be able to be looked after better by a culture closer to their own? at the end of the day these children when they become adults will hopefully want to go back to their country of origin. What good would it do for them to go back after being raised in a western country to make a new life, they would probably start another war because they would want to have a western culture.
Whilst reading Daniel Hannan’s Book Why Vote Leave I was struck by the thought what else could Brussels do to harmonize E.U. member states?
It is clear that there is no love for Britain within the E.U. just as they want us to give up our currency and sovereignty I can see that at some point as part of the united states of europe (USE) Brussels would want to us to give up the english language. The mantra for the forthcoming USE is harmonization, everyone and everything being standardised and ruled by un-elected bureaucrats. Perhaps they will choose Esperanto as the standard language as Esperanto was developed by the Polish Dr Ludovic Lazarus Zamenhof, and was an attempt to create a universal second language that would further international peace and understanding. it would be an ideal choice for the Brussels bureaucrats.
In plainer English, it is an artificial, amalgamated language of five vowels and 23 consonants based on the western Indo-European languages. Its grammatical rules are logical, its verb endings regular, its spelling phonetic. It is Franglais and Spanglish for grown-ups.
Do we want to lose our Currency, Sovereignty and our beautiful languages? imagine if you will listening to Shakespeare’s sonnets or Wordsworth’s poems in anything other than English. it should be noted that I am saying this as a Welshman, but as I am part of Great Britain I feel entitled to make this comment. Be under no illusion being a member of the E.U. will incur costs to Britain & we will continue to be changed beyond recognition until we are assimilated into the single pan European identity.
A development of European identity is regarded by supporters of European integration as part of the pursuit of a politically, economically and militarily influential united Europe.
Make’s you think doesn’t it? it’s your choice, better make sure it’s the right one so think about what we are about to vote for on 23rd June 2016.
Willful blindness / willful ignorance
Ignorance of the law, not knowing what you should know. Are the Stronger in & remain camp guilty of this?
Willful blindness (sometimes called ignorance of law, willful ignorance or contrived ignorance or Nelsonian knowledge) is a term used in law to describe a situation in which an individual seeks to avoid civil or criminal liability for a wrongful act by intentionally putting his or herself in a position where he or she will be unaware of facts that would render him or her liable.
For example, in a number of cases, persons transporting packages containing illegal drugs have asserted that they never asked what the contents of the packages were and so lacked the requisite intent to break the law.
Such defenses have not succeeded, as courts have been quick to determine that the defendant should have known what was in the package and exercised criminal recklessness by failing to find out.
Sounds familiar? well it is the type of sharp practice that David Cameron and his supporters are using to press forward with the E.U. dictates.
Just consider the following statements from the Stonger in EU and remain camps.
- 3 Million UK jobs are linked to our trade with the E.U.
- The UK gets £66 Million of investment every day from E.U. Countries
- For every £1 we put into the E.U, we get almost £10 back
- The benifits of being in the EU, £3000 per household through lower prices, More trade, Jobes & Investment.
- You save £350 every year because being in the EU means lower prices.
The pro-E.U. camps really do appear to be practicing Willful Blindness.
The stronger in campain et al would have us believe that the above statments are true but these are designed to cloak the issue’s, Just think we are losing our industrial heritage such as our steel and fishing industries, our flexability as a working nation is being restrained by crippling E.U. regulations, we are being financially drained. The denial by our government that the migrant crisis is not going to get worse if we stay in the E.U. and that we will be stronger if we remain. So the above statements are meaningless.
The government does not even know how many migrants we actually have in the U.K. saying that if we stay in we will have better control of our borders. We can therefore see why the the Pro-E.U. camps prefer to turn a blind eye to the facts.
I have always been a bit of maverick in that I have been unorthodox or an independent-minded person this is true.
So I don’t think anyone who knows me would be surprised that I am going to vote leave in the 23rd June referendum, I am a socialist at heart but I will admit that in the case of the referendum I am glad to share the views of eurosceptics like Nigel Farage, David Jones MP and Daniel Hannan MEP even with the later two being conservatives.
It appears that we have a similar deep mistrust of the european union & the european parliament in Brussels and so we should.
Daniel Hannan in the introduction chapter of his book Why Vote Leave tells the tale of how on his first day at Brussels as an MEP he was filing his travel expenses and the very nice lady dealing with it took his airline ticket and gave him his refund which he was entitled to as an MEP, Daniel was shocked by the large amount refunded and questioned the lady saying there must be some mistake.
The lady dealing with his expenses said that there was no mistake, it was correct. you see Daniel explains that it was more then he would have paid if it was a business class flight from Heathrow, the lady told him that is what the given rate for kilometerage rate from London. Basically thats where the gravy train starts, it gets worse with all the other perks. Daniel is being honest enough to let you know where some of our money goes.
So on and on it goes, an ever more corrupt misuse of our communities money from the relatively small hundreds of thousands it cost each year to pay the MEP’s to the millions paid to non government organisations or NGO’s who are funded by Brussels to secretly canvas on the E.U.’s behalf. Do a little digging and you will shocked to find out how many institutions are getting E.U. money for helping push the European ethos to the masses.
I don’t think we can justify this kind of waste of money when we see our NHS and educational system being driven on a downward spiral, but wait a minute our universities are funded by Brussels to promote the E.U. policies.
Yes Brussels will quite happily spend our cash on many other wasteful enterprises. Simply put these people are robbing the poor to pay the rich. We cannot let this continue so its a case of seize the day for our country and children’s sake.
If we don’t take the opportunity to put right this situation our offspring will never forgive us, we will have let their birthright slip through our fingers. Unfortunately we have let Europe and our successive governments dilute our cultural heritage to the point where we may not be able to depend on the U.K. inhabitants to feel 100% British and vote with their hearts. In all probability we may have lost the youth of today because of the multicultural policy we have adopted. Dual nationality marriages or partnerships will also have an impact, imagine a migrant who is married to a British national voting to block more of his or her extended family from joining them here in this benefit rich society.
I would like to ask a question of my fellow British nationals, given what we have experienced since1973 of the Common market, EEC, EU. Would they vote to join now in 2016 knowing what we know now about the great deception?
I think a vote to leave is a vote of confidence in our own destiny.
