BREXIT: THE MOVIE
"On June 23rd 2016, the British public will decide whether to remain a member of the EU.
Brexit: The Movie makes the case for Britain to LEAVE the EU"
BREXIT POLL TRACKER
"Britain's referendum on EU membership will be held on June 23rd.
The latest polling polling information for the 'Brexit' campaign can be found here"
"There have been four major attempts to have a single European state:
The Roman Empire, Charlemagne's Holy Roman Empire, Napoleon's First French Empire, Hitler's Third Reich.
The Nazi project was killed in 1945 or so we thought.
It has been reborn in conjunction with the Frankfurt School of Marxism as the European Union Project" [source]
"Our great nation ... will in practice take
over the leadership of Europe.
There are no two ways about that" [Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda]
"Europe's nations should be guided towards
the superstate without their people understanding what is happening.
This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation"
[Jean Monnet, founding father of the EU]
"There is no question of any erosion of essential national sovereignty" [Edward Heath, PM of Britain, 1970-74]
"When it becomes serious, you have to lie" [Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission]
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters and, most important, immigration policy from this hopelessly undemocratic organisation in Brussels. ... But ... where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? ... something greater; something more essential? You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton" [source].
"...it is still rather thrilling to see the British people stirring at last after a long, long sleep" [source].
A Question for Remainers:
Who runs your home, your household? Who determines its ethos?
Who controls its organisation? Who decides its practices?
Who manages its finances? Who oversees its safety and
wellbeing? Who runs its day-to-day details?:
"Do you believe that the UK has the right, and the ability, to govern itself as an independent, democratic nation?" [source].
"Should Westminster be the ultimate source of laws for the British?" [source].
"Do you believe that our laws should be made by politicians that we have elected (and can dismiss), rather than by unaccountable foreign institutions?" [source].
"Did you know that 50% of UK laws are now made in Brussels?" [House of Commons Library, quoted in Leave.EU].
"Would the country be better governed by Brussels (by being part of the EU) or by our own government and Parliament in London?" [source].
"Who would make fewer mistakes and correct them more quickly, our government in London or EU bureaucrats in Brussels?" [source].
"Who would protect our national interests better, our own government, accountable to the People, or unelected EU bureaucrats?" [source].
"Would we be happier, more democratic and peaceful as a sovereign, independent country with our own identity or as an anonymous region of an EU superstate?" [source].
"What is is about democracy that you don't like, Mr Jones?" [comment at source].
"What is it about the British people that you think makes us unfit to govern ourselves, Mr Jones?" [comment at source].
"What is is about unelected Brussels' civil servants that makes them especially qualified to govern us, Mr Jones?" [comment at source].
"When did the political class lose its confidence to rule the country, rather than have the EU run it for us?" [question asked by member of the audience, quoted at source].
"Is the EU Totalitarian? [source].
"Won't the 'special status' the prime minister negotiated with other EU leaders solve these issues? Answer: The only meaningful part of the agreement, the 'emergency brake' on in-work benefits for the EU migrants, is yet to be approved by the British Parliament. Meanwhile, promises to protect Britain from deeper integration are not legally binding" [Leave.EU].
"Did you know that the UK is unable to defend its interests in the EU? Did you know that the UK's share of the vote over European Union law is just 11%? Did you know that a mere 4% of EU policy makers are British?" [EU, quoted at Leave.EU].
A Question for Remainers:
When one of your children comes to you and tells you that your other
child has trampled over your rose bushes, ridden their bike through
your hydrangeas, and cut the flowers off your prize orchids, but the
accused child vehemently denies it, what is your response?:
"Would Britain's legal system change?" [source].
"Should the Supreme Court be the final authority for Britain, excluding any jurisdiction from any foreign court?" [source].
"Did you know that it's possible to trade with the EU without being a member, and that the three largest exporters to the the EU (Russia, China, the USA) have no preferential trade deals with the EU at all?" [source].
"Are you aware that on leaving the EU, Britain will certainly have a free trade arrangement with the EU and that the UK/EU trade (and the jobs dependent on it) will continue?" [source].
"Would we, as individuals and a country, be more competitive, productive and ultimately prosperous being heavily regulated by a centralised, costly EU bureaucracy or as a fast moving, low tax, entrepreneurial free society? [source].
"What would the impact on trade be?" [source].
"How can we profit from an EU with which we have a massive £500 billion trade deficit since we joined in 1973? In the last 20 years there are 27 non-EU countries whose exports of goods to the EU grew faster than the UK's" [source].
"Why should the UK with a national debt of £1.5 trillion continue to pay £13 billion a year (£60 billion in the last 10 years) just to trade with the EU when they would have to trade with us anyway, and when our membership of the British Commonwealth costs us less than £50 million a year, which is growing far faster than the EU and has a similar share in world trade?" [source].
A Question for Remainers:
Who controls your finances? Who organises your household's
budget? When you receive your monthly salary or invoices paid
from your clients:
"What would the impact be on the British economy as a whole?" [source].
"Won't leaving the EU make our economy weaker? Answer: The UK is the world's fifth largest economy, boasting among the highest economic growth and lowest unemployment rates in the developed world, not to mention the EU. It also receives the most foreign investment in Europe. Leaving the EU will improve our quality of life: with its right to strike deals restored, the UK will be able to gain better access to those markets that buy most of our goods and services" [Leave.EU].
"Did you know that only outside the EU can we be sure the UK never adopts the Euro?" [Leave.EU].
"How can we be stronger in a Europe which is the fastest declining economic region in the world? In 1980 the EU had 31% of world trade: today it is 17% and falling - with 24m unemployed (10%) [source].
"How can we benefit our people in an EU where there has been over 10% unemployment for a decade, with youth employment up to 50%" [source].
"How can there be any future for British Youth in the EU? Youth unemployment in Greece is 48.9% (but 200,000 have left Greece so 60% would be nearer the truth): in Spain it's 45.3%, Croatia 40.3%, Italy 39.1%, Cyprus 30.5%, Portugal 30%, and France 24%" [source].
"Do you agree that British farmers would be better off with a farm support mechanism designed for them in Britain, rather than a farm support mechanism designed in Brussels for French farmers?" [source].
"Do you agree that we in Britain should be able to control our fisheries in internationally recognised UK waters, rather than regarding these fisheries as a 'common EU resource' open to Spanish and other boats?" [source].
"Should Britain have complete control over fisheries and agriculture?" [source].
"Did you know that food is 17% more expensive as a direct result of EU policies?" [International Energy Agency, quoted by Leave.EU].
"Should all consumer protection matters [be] returned to Britain - e.g. power of vacuum cleaners, standards for light bulbs, etc?" [source].
"Are you concerned that the EU's Working Time Directive is creating mayhem in the NHS, driving up costs and preventing comprehensive training of junior doctors?" [source].
"Should Britain have sole responsibility for all public health matters, such as tobacco and alcohol policies?" [source].
A Question for Remainers:
Do you have a front door (and perhaps a back door too)?
When you are at home, when you go to bed each night, when you're out
for the day, or away on holiday:
"Do you believe that Britain should control its borders, so that we can decide on how many immigrants we should admit, and what qualifications they should have?" [source].
"Should Britain have sole control over immigration, including terms of entry and visa policy?" [source].
"Do you agree that immigration policy should not discriminate on grounds of nationality (as it does at the moment)?" [source].
"Do you think that we should be free to remove from the UK foreign nationals who are here illegally, or who have committed serious offences, or are implicated in terrorism?" [source].
"What about border control and immigration?" [source].
"Did you know that total immigration from the EU in the last 3 years is greater than the population of Leeds?" [Office of National Statistics, quoted at Leave.EU].
"Without the EU, wouldn't we be less secure? Answer: Only by leaving the EU will the UK have total control of its borders and be able to deport dangerous foreign criminals. Cross-border security and intelligence cooperation is in every European country's interest, and will continue, regardless of the outcome of the EU referendum" [Leave.EU].
"How can we sustain our own society when the EU opens our borders to the 17million unemployed from their bankrupt Eurozone? The EU is threatening Switzerland, which is not in the EU, both politically and economically, because the Swiss (25% of the population now foreign born) voted to limit immigration in a national referendum" [source].
"UK borders are open to 500m other EU citizens with another 120m now to be given access to our country from Ukraine, Turkey, Bosnia, Kosovo, Moldova and any other country the EU wants to invite - and about which the British people have never been consulted. How can we tolerate a German Chancellor inviting millions of refugees including Islamic terrorists, to Germany and then demanding that we and other member states take them?" [source].
"Why should the EU - through the European Convention of Human Rights - prevent us from expelling terrorists whom our Home Secretary describes as a danger to national security?" [source].
"Should our armed forces be merged into the proposed (but not disclosed) EU defence force?" [source].
"Will I still be able to travel throughout the EU freely?" [source].
"Do you think we pay too much for energy?" [source].
"Are you concerned that swathes of manufacturing industry are closing plants and moving investment and jobs off-shore because of high UK/EU energy prices?" [source].
"Are you aware that widely accepted estimates for the total costs of Britain's EU membership amount to an eye-watering 10 to 11% of GDP?" [source].
"How much money would Britain save on membership fees?" [source].
"Will I be financially worse off?" [source].
"Would taxes change?" [source].
"Wouldn't we lose many financial benefits if we leave the EU? Answer: No. Britain is not better off in the EU - we pay far more into the EU budget than we get in return. Leaving the EU would provide a £15.3bn windfall, enough to pay for 35 new hospitals and still double current EU spending on Research and Development in the UK. Britain's national and regional governments would also decide how this money is spent, not the EU" [Leave.EU].
"Won't we have less global influence? Answer: The EU takes the UK's place in many global bodies and overrules Britain in most of the others: climate change, the environment and standards are just a few examples. Once freed from the EU's gagging order, Britain will be able to capitalise on its enormous cultural, political, economic, scientific and business clout in global affairs" [Leave.EU].
"What does an EU referendum mean?" [source].
"What is the EU?" [source].
"When will the EU referendum happen?" [source].
"Why is a referendum being held?" [source].
"What are 'reforms', and what is David Cameron hoping to achieve?" [source].
"What happens the day after a vote to leave?" [source].
"What will happen to British citizens working in the EU, and EU citizens working in the UK?" [source].
"Would Britain have less influence in the World?" [source].
"Would it be acceptable to suffer short term pain, in leaving the EU when we choose, to achieve long term gain?" [source].
"How was it possible that Walter Hallstein, a promoter of the Nuremberg racial laws, could become the 'founding father' of the 'Brussels EU'?" [source].
"Why did the politicians of Europe then not inform their people about those relics from the Nazi past? Why did they not boycott the 'Brussels EU' then?" [source].
"How much money did the successors of IG Farben have to channel through the bank accounts of the 'Brussels EU' to buy the silence of the rest of Europe for more than half a century?" [source].
"How can the politicians of Europe today try to sell this 'Brussels EU' construct to the people of Europe as the basis for a future Europe?" [source].
"Is the EU Totalitarian?" [source].
The following is an extended extract from Battle for the Very Soul of Britain
"Nine hundred and fifty years ago, between two hillocks at Hastings, an Anglo-Saxon king took an arrow in his eye and England surrendered her independence. That was our last - should I say most recent? - defeat on home soil. King Harold's forces fought valiantly but they had been exhausted by two earlier battles ... A shrewd and ruthless Frenchman, Guillaume of Normandy, seized power and London's Witan parliament was never heard of again. ...
"I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently. ... As a schoolboy I visited the northern French town of Bayeux to see [the] tapestry and remember a sting of sorrow as I saw the needlework images of vanquished Anglo-Saxons. It was always the same when I read history yarns about British chieftain Caractacus fighting the Romans on his hilltop and later being paraded in Rome as a chained captive; or gallant ... Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, charging towards the Roman lines in her chariot ... In such accounts, I always rooted for the Brits. ... I always wanted the dwellers of our dank and foggy, sea-set isle to seize the day. Was it a nascent sketchwriter's innate bias or inherited love of country from my fiercely patriotic parents? Was that love wrong? Is that love wrong? I still feel that way.
"The likes of Mr Cameron and his fellow Europhiles ... presumably feel something different when they look at the Bayeux tapestry. I suppose they experience a glow of quiet satisfaction that William and his forces of European integration over came the locals. ... A deep-rooted part of me rebels against that. ... I grieve for the freedoms that were squashed. And I feel just the same when I look at an castle built by English lords to crush dissent in Scottish and Welsh territory. My sympathies lie with the invaded. ...
"Hereward the Wake [a] Lincolnshire freeman ... had his lands taken by the Normans and decided to do something about it. For a few years after 1066, Hereward and his small army operated out of the Cambridgeshire town of Ely, then an island. They were beaten only after a treacherous monk showed the Normans one of the secret paths to Ely through the Fenland marshes. ... Almost a millennium after the event, I feel a lively indignation on Hereward's behalf. What a cur that monk was to betray him. What if Hereward had continued to oppose William? Could he have combined with the still unconquered Celts and Northumbrians to drive out the 'ingengas'? Or was Norman rule as inevitable as supporters of the EU now say their governing body is inevitable? As for that treacherous monk, was he a sort of Roland Rudd of his day ... the City PR smoothie pulling strings for the Remain camp? ...
"My support for Hereward may reflect a surfeit of foolish romanticism. But it may also echo enduring truths about the importance of self-determination and of remaining true to one's ancestral heritage. For what are we if we deny the past? What is the point of being British if we are not able to say who governs us? And let there be no doubt: if we vote to stay ion the EU, we will not be able to dislodge the elite that runs Brussels. They will be impervious to our democratic disapproval. They will be as safe as William and his shaven-headed Normans were in their mighty castle keeps. ...
"The Leave campaign ... has urged voters to quit the EU for a range of reasons ... Hereward the Wake ... would have heard Vote Leave talk of how we must 'take control' and would surely have thought 'I don't really want control - I want liberty.' ...
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters, ... immigration policy ... But where is the optimism in Leave's campaign? Where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? The hearts of Hereeward the Wake and his 'green men' would have burned for something greater; something more essential. You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton. ...
"I think of my grandfathers. One was wounded three times on the Western Front in World War I. The other landed in Normandy - Normandy! - just before D-Day to clear the beaches of mines. They fought for king and country, yes, but they fought most of all for an idea: freedom. The days of ancestral sword and scramasax may have passed but that powerful notion of liberty, the spirit of British dissent which flared so wonderfully in the East Anglian fens 950 years ago, must never be allowed to die. Without it, we would be an island without pride, an island shorn of soul"

The following is an extended extract from Freenations
"Free nations, like free people, are the condition for democracy, free trade and international peace. No system based on freedom under the law and majority votes in elections can exist without a common language, history, [and] religion which form the basis of the law and a predominant culture to which immigrants must gradually assimilate. Such are the achievements of the Nation States. Supranational States achieve the opposite - war, internal conflict, economic failure, financial collapse and social decay, as the USSR, Nazi Europe and the EU today so clearly demonstrate. ...
"The great wars of the 20th century were fought to free the nation states from the hegemony of imperial powers, from fascism and from communism. The years of general peace after 1945 coincided with the rapid growth in the number of nation states, and the UN Convention on Civil and Political Rights of 1966 affirmed the rights of all peoples to self determination. But gradually over the last 50 years the power of supranational government (the EU being the most aggressive) and multinational corporations frustrated and overturned the will of voters and the power of the consumer. They formed that combination of corporate and State power that has always destroyed democracy and nationhood and has always been associated with the rise of fascism ad German imperialism in Europe.
"From the Single European Act of 1986 and the Maastricht Treaty of 1992, conflict and wars, ethnic cleansing, the break up of nations and inter-nation tensions have risen in Europe. The results of the wars which freed the nations have been reversed with the political map of Europe now looking remarkably like 1914 and the height of Nazi hegemony in 1941. The EU has now extended further East than even Hitler was able to venture as recent agreements between the EU and Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova testify. Those agreements - like the early trade agreements of the European Common Market - have already required constitutional surrender by those nations and now there is built by German Europe from the West something akin to the Russian Europe which Stalin built from the East. ...
"Corporatism and Fascism are cross party. They combine the left, the right, and in particular the unthinking centre. ... Therefore the solution is cross party. ...
"Nationism [describes] the (non-nationalistic) concept of the democratic sovereignty of nations trading and co-operating peacefully with other nations. Self-governing and democratic at home and free trading and cooperating abroad, there is nothing aggressive about the nation state.
"NATIONISM: (a) democratic people, (b) equality of nations, (c) cultural homogeneity to ensure democracy, (d) free movement of goods and capital, (e) diffused political and economic power, (f) stable money for people to save.
"NATIONALISM: (a) political State power over other nations, (b) multicultural imperial supranational power, (c) controlled trade to ensure political control, (d) central political and corporate control, (e) inflation for the State to reduce its debt"

"These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth" (Genesis 10:32-11:9).
