They Haven't Bothered to Read It (01 June 2019)
"Rory Stewart, Mrs May's Minister of International Development, has said that if MPs want Brexit then they should vote for her Agreement and stop quibbling over its details. But how many MPs know what the details in the WA are? There are nearly 600 pages in the Agreement with its Articles often having clauses & subclauses which refer to EU legislation elsewhere ... Also there are two different versions of the WA online ... There are many evils in Mrs May's misnamed Withdrawal Agreement..."
Mrs May's Withdrawal (of Democracy) Agreement (02 May 2019)
"Mrs May said 109 times at the Despatch Box in the HoC that the UK would leave the EU on the 29th March 2019, in accordance with the provisions of Article 50 in the Treaty of Lisobn. But the EU has brushed its own Article 50 aside at Mrs May's request. Britain did not leave the EU on 29th Marerch because Mrs May's misnamed WA with Angela Merkel has not yet got through the HoC
The Law, International Law and Ms May's Withdrawal Treaty (27 April 2019)
"It may just be that people like Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson are intending to agree to May's dreadful WA Treaty, with the idea that, even if it provides within itself no escape mechanism like article 50, later we will, if all else fails, be able to leave it unilaterally. What they seem not to realise is that as soon as it is passed, the treacherous Mrs May intends to stipulate a separate Security Treaty with the EU, which will involve the amalgamation of our armed forces with theirs, and the placing of their hobnailed boots on our soil. Once that is achieved, well, they will old the guns and we will have none..."
The Withdrawal Agreement Is A One-Way Ticket back Into the EU (26 March 2019)
"The twin disasters of the WA and the Political Declaration are now very well known. Less well discussed is the ultimate consequence of these proposals being passed by the UK Parliament. Passing the WA/PD effectively guarantees that the UK returns to the EU on far worse terms than we currently have - within the next 5 years. here's why..."
"The government is claiming that, if its WA is rejected, parliament will take over and impose a 'softer' form of Brexit. This line of argument is dishonest, because the differences between the economic end-state that would result from the government's WA being passed, and the end-state resulting from 'Common Market 2.0' or 'Norway plus', are almost non-existent..."
The Withdrawal Agreement Is An EU Trap (20 March 2019)
"The government and even Brexiteers spooked by the latest offerings from Project Fear are now saying that Theresa May's WA, despite its manifest flaws (not least the fundamental failure to deliver any kind of Brexit) ... is the only option to 'deliver Brexit'. Nothing could be further from the truth ... MPs should realise the full dangers of surrendering to fallacious arguments from Number 10 at this late stage - for never has a full Brexit that restores full sovereignty to the UK been more possible than now. But it can only happen if the WA is permanently consigned to the dustbin..."
"The threat of an Article 50 extension is causing anxiety for some sincere and committed Brexiteers. Some say they should back Theresa May's deal to 'get Brexit over the line'. But the deal won't deliver Brexit. Worse than that, it'll lock us into not delivering Brexit for many years to come. If the deal goes through, the next day we will not have left the EU in anything but name ... The Brexit process will not be 'over', or 'done and dusted' by signing the deal. Those 21 months - or longer - will be filled with the turmoil of ongoing negotiations about our future relationship. We will be negotiating against a real 'cliff edge' at the end of the transition - unlike the largely mythical and Project Fear 3.0. 'cliff edge' we face now..."
Is the Withdrawal Agreement Legal?
(26 February 2019)
*** VITAL READING: ARTICLE BY CIVIL SERVANT WHISTLEBLOWER ***
"The EU's triple lock guarantee is so constructed that never again will Brussels be troubled by an explosion of democracy in the UK. Parliament has one last chance to escape total eclipse - and it is now, by rejecting the Withdrawal Agreement in its entirety"
Everything You Need to Know About This Dog's Breakfast of a Brexit Fiasco (11 December 2018)
"Here is where I think we are: ... Forget all the confusing details about the Single Market and the Customs Union and the Backstop, the bottom line is this: if in March 2019, Britain finds itself 'leaving' the EU but still constrained by its court rulings and unable to negotiate whichever trading deals it wants with whatever non-EU member states it wants, then democracy has lost, the British people have been betrayed, and the Remain Establishment has won. Last weekend's Brexit Betrayal March was just a polite dress rehearsal..."
Fake Democracy (11 December 2018)
"What should happen if the UK is a truly democratic nation? ... The result - to LEAVE the, in my opinion, corrupt EU gets implemented immediately and the UK once again becomes a proud, independent nation in full control of its own affairs. But of course, 'they' won't do this. These inexperienced know-it-alls are so smart that we must listen to them and appreciate their superiority..."
Delay May (11 December 2018)
"Ms May scrapped today's 'meaningful vote' (one assumes that any other vote in the HoC is meaningless?), postponing it until January 21st while gong to Brussels (going? Crawling on her knees, more like!), to ask her overlords for more of the same ... Well, good luck with that! Mr 'Backstop' Varadkar said immediately that there was nothing to negotiate ... It is of course pure coincidence that she took this decision on the same morning when the ECJ ruled that the UK could unilaterally scrap the Article 50 application..."
The EU's Duplicitous, Destabilising Withdrawal Agreement (06 December 2018)
"The EU largely set the direction for negotiations and resulting actions by Mrs May which ultimately resulted in the proposed agreement. Yet their statements were sometimes disingenuous with the potential to lead to actions damaging to our country ... there was misinformation on the Single Market, free movement of people, costs of Single Market membership and the jurisdiction of the EU's ECJ..."
Humphrys Blasts May: You're Not Listening! (06 December 2018)
"It has to be said that the PM's promised 'tour' to 'open a national conversation' about her wretched Withdrawal Agreement has been nothing of the kind. Basically, it has consisted of her sofa-surfing and channel-hopping from one radio/tv show to the next. However, it has been refreshing to see her roasted and toasted by members of the public and hosts alike. John Humphrys is the latest. Confronting May, he said:..."
Brexit Betrayal: Establishment Will Betray Brexit 'At Any Cost' (04 December 2018)
Gerard Batten said today: "The entire strategy of Mrs May and the political class over the last two years has been to arrive at a 'deal' that was so bad neither Leavers or Remainers would accept it. The narrative they are pushing is that leaving the EU is impossible and therefore Britain has no option but to stay ... I have said all along that Article 50 was a trap designed to delay, impeded and overturn our attempt to leave the EU. I have also said that Article 50 could be discarded, not to stay in the EU, but to unilaterally leave" / Reader's comment: "Although we knew the blighters would oppose us, I think to be honest that the lengths they have gone to, to deceive, blind, twist and insult the British public are quite beyond extraordinary. The hatred is no longer in the closet but out there for all to see. They have behaved like a pit of poisonous snakes, hissing and spitting ... God help us all. We really do have to drain this swamp, utterly and totally"
Brexit: May Deal Set to Fail (03 December 2018)
"We know the Lord delivered the referendum result on 23rd June 2016 solely of his mercy and grace ... Why did our negotiators not simply tell the EU: 'We are leaving on 29th March 2019 on WTO terms'? They could then have said: 'Now, after that date, do you want to trade with us on WTO terms or with a Canada-style arrangement?' But we are, as they say, where we are..."
The Withdrawal Agreement has been drafted by a small number of Remain-inclined civil servants under the direction of a Prime Minister who campaigned for Remain. It will pay £39bn in reparations without any agreement on a future economic relationship with the EU. it isolates Northern Ireland ass a colony in preparation for its future absorption into the EU ... It locks the UK into a 'single customs territory', where the UK is subject to the laws of a foreign power without having any influence on how those laws are determined and without any unilateral right to leave..."
Why We Need to Ditch Treacherous Theresa's Dreadful Betrayal of Our Country (28 November 2018)
"May keeps rabbiting on about the great future Britain will have outside the EU. But the problem is that May has sold out any chance of us ever getting to this future ... Britain and the EU still have to negotiate our future relationship. Furthermore, as far as I understand, every single European country will have the ability to veto any future trade deal. This gives 27 countries the ability to blackmail Britain and demand anything they want. But Britain hasn't got any cards to play in the negotiations to come..."
Unconditional Surrender (26 November 2018)
"Yesterday was the day our Government, in the form of our PM, unconditionally surrendered to the EU by signing the Withdrawal Agreement. The other, the winning side, not only jubilated - it is already tightening the screws even further. There are some very illuminating remarks made by EU 'diplomats' during that signing 'ceremony' yesterday..."
May's Betrayal Agreement Signed: Britain on the Road to Brexit In Name Only (25 November 2018)
"EU leaders have signed off on the Brexit agreement negotiated with Theresa May, described as 'the worst deal in history' by Leavers. The Remain-voting PM's deal with the EU - if ratified by the British parliament and European parliament - could condemn the United Kingdom to 'perpetual purgatory' or even no Brexit at all, as Britain's departure would be followed by a lengthy 'transition' period in which it would remain subject to all the rules and regulations of an EU member-state, but without representation in the EU's institutions..."
Can People Vote for Slavery? (24 November 2018)
"If a democracy can elect a Marxist government, then there's something fundamentally wrong with the democracy. This conclusion may sound uncomfortable and politically suspect, but it has more to do with logic than with politics. The very essence of Marxism is transferring power to the 'people', which is the Marxist jargon for a small group of bureaucrats running a tyrannical, omnipotent state..."
The Worst Of All Worlds (22 November 2018)
"Brexit is finished, washed up, beaten hollow, dead and gone. That's only the half of it: the other half is that Theresa May - the most duplicitous politician since Edward Heath and the biggest traitor since Judas Iscariot - is still prime minister. That is the shape of it..."
The Great European Union Lie (22 November 2018)
"Most MPs are for Remain because, for 40 years, Westminster deliberately deceived voters about EU domination and control. The May 'deal' is an extension of that program. Most MPs agree to conspire because they could never be MPs, had they refused. This was a key qualification ... MPs were disciplined, if they had any career aspiration, to toe the line and participate in the gigantic lie. Shouty press excepted, broadsheets participated and academia was cheaply bought. Business was blackmailed into participation ... Meanwhile, the EU poisoned society with Project Contempt (misnamed Project Fear)..."
Realpolitik - Where Have You Gone? (19 November 2018)
"Think back to that balmy night on 23rd June 2016. The night when the United Kingdom voted for its independence and freedom from a failing experiment ... That great feeling that the people had taken back control of their destiny and future has been slowly worn down and put through the grinder until it has now been replaced by frustration, anger and despair. Parliament no longer engages with the people. They treat us ... with contempt, insolence and disdain..."
Mrs May: Brussels' Colonial Governor (18 November 2018)
"For those of us who participated in the modern-day Peasant's Revolt ... we must have known in our hearts that it was all doomed, that the establishment would never permit us to leave the EU. For a day or two last week, Mrs May's grotesque deal having provoked condemnation from all sides of the House, it seemed that new leader might emerge and that something of Brexit might be salvaged..."
No Brexit This Way (18 November 2018)
"I wrote at the time of the EU referendum on Britain's future in the EU that, if the vote was to leave, it would never be implemented as Britain's version of the deep state simply would not allow that to happen. In the same way that Trump was never going to be allowed to govern as president in any meaningful sense, too many powerful and Machiavellian forces were at work to keep Britain in the EU in perpetuity..."
May's Headlong Tumble from the Moral High [sic] Ground (18 November 2018)
"'The UK agrees not to prosecute EU employees who are, or might be deemed to be, criminals' (Art 101). Criminals? Actual proven criminals? ... fraud, violence, theft, rape, money laundering, murder, disappearances? And no prosecution, Liberty Hall? ... Anyone who would even contemplate signing the nation up to such an outrage is not just morally bankrupt, but a very dangerous individual indeed."
The Top 40 Horrors Lurking in the Small Print of Theresa May's Brexit Deal (17 November 2019)
"Speaking on Friday, Liam Fox - the International Trade Secretary - gave a speech in which he declared 'a deal is better than no deal'. This is rather different to May's old claim that 'no deal is better than a bad deal' ... [L]et readers decide for themselves..."
The Deal - A Brief Look Back in Anger at the Last Four Days (17 November 2018)
"'One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.' That quote came to mind when I looked back at the presentation of the 'Withdrawal Agreement'. I was also reminded of the old footages of a nuclear explosion, after the mushroom cloud..."
Where Do We Go From Here? (16 November 2018)
"May's soft-remain, BRINO-Deal must immediately be repudiated and taken off the table. The EU must be told unequivocally that there will be no further discussion on it, and that it is to all intents and purposes dead. We must still leave all of the EU, the customs union, the internal (single) market, and the jurisdiction of the ECJ, as intended on 29 March 2019, but on No-Deal, WTO terms ... For the Vichy-Tories, the moment of truth has arrived..."
Humiliation: How May's Deal Put Party Before Country (16 November 2018)
"Theresa May has achieved something truly remarkable: she has negotiated a Withdrawal Agreement which is worse than remaining in the European Union. Since the announcement of her universally loathed Chequers plan, it has been clear that a betrayal of the referendum result and the democratic decision of the British people was under way. Yet few could have imagined just how bad the final result would be..."
How to Save Brexit (15 November 2018)
"Take this in. The people of Britain demand control - democratic, sovereign control, over borders, over immigration, over trade - and yet May cedes control to the EU. The largest bloc of voters in the entire history of this nation calls for a clean, radical wresting of political sovereignty back from Brussels, and yet May sells off our sovereignty to Brussels. We say, in our confident, teeming millions, 'Leave the EU'; our political leaders say, 'We're staying in it. In its thrall, under its purview, beholden to its controls.' It's time we reckoned with the enormity of what is happening here ... Which is this:..."
Betrayal In Our Time: Mrs May's Brexit 'Deal' (15 November 2018)
"Last night, watching Mrs May deliver her studiously impassioned (any deal is better than no deal), statement in Downing Street, this question of when is a compromise a betrayal echoed down the decades. May would rather threaten her own people with 'Brexit Reversal' than square up to the EU. Their declarations are 79 years apart but the similarities between May and Chamberlain struck me - stubborn, vain, self-opinionated and dishonest, and under the delusion that what they 'achieve' is the pinnacle of what is politically possible. Well, some may decide to join in this game of pretence and act co-conspirator, but most won't be taken in..."
Briefing Paper on HM Government's Draft EU Withdrawal Agreement (15 November 2018)
"Mrs May's long-awaited Withdrawal Agreement is a complete betrayal of the Referendum decision. It is exactly what I have said would happen for the last two years - we have been presented with a 'Not Really Leaving the EU Withdrawal Agreement.' It will not satisfy Leavers or Remainers. Its intention is to make it possible to reverse the Referendum decision or, if it is implemented, to pave the way for a re-entry to the EU in a few years' time..."
My first thought, when Theresa May was made Prime Minister just after the referendum in June 2016, was that putting a Remainer in charge of Brexit would be like putting the Pope in charge of the Protestant Reformation: It ain't gonna happen...
"To the best of my knowledge no democratic country has ever voluntarily agreed to a treaty in which it agrees that a foreign power may, if it so wishes, overrule that country's laws forever. In a week following the centenary remembrance of the WWI armistice, the UK government has agreed a deal arguable worse for the UK than the Treaty of Versailles was a hundred years ago for Germany ... It was always naive to hope that somebody who campaigned against democracy could be trusted to respect the referendum result. Thanks to Theresa May a strong hand has been deliberately misplayed, taxpayers' money wantonly thrown away, divisions deepened and a precious two and three quarter years to prepare for the future squandered. No doubt the pain and trauma of no deal will be the greater as a result of her Brexit betrayal. There will be more drama ahead in what May has made into an all or nothing game of chicken. True democrats of any party however now have no choice. We must all prepare to crash out of the EU gaol come what may" [source].
"Time wouldn't be running short if we hadn't wasted two years on Oliver Twist-like supplicancy, begging our European masters to be kind, whereas all they want is to punish us, discourage others and, ideally, torpedo Brexit. A PM committed to Brexit, rather than to the warped ruling elite, could have invoked the Royal Prerogative, left immediately after Parliament activated Article 50 - and only then started negotiating 'deals'." [source].
"The Withdrawal (of Democracy) Agreement is Whitehall's response to the 23rd June 2016. The EU has always been the bureaucrats' idea of Heaven, and Whitehall bureaucrats feel far more loyalty to their opposite numbers in the EU than to the British electorate, who they regard as ignorant yokels. The Referendum victory for Leave showed that the Commons could soon have a majority of Leave MPs. So the EU had to act fast. Mrs May's mission from Angela Merkel is to force her Agreement through Parliament as the EU's Final Solution to the British Problem. And in that mission to withdraw democracy she has the support of those MPs in the Commons who campaigned for Remain before the 23rd June 2016. Remain MPs would much rather be ruled by EU bureaucrats, than by the dangerously unpredictable and swinish multitude of British voters. Remain MPs regard the vote for British Home Rule on 23rd June 2016 as a racist & xenophobic Hate Crime. Consequently Remain MPs are wary of the ballot box itself, and see universal suffrage as a dangerous indulgence of populism. Populism gives a voice to the vulgar, plebian concerns of the common herd, and those concerns can speak through the ballot box, as they did on 23rd June 2016. Whitehall and Westminster both agree that the 2016 Referendum revolt showed that British voters are dangerously patriotic. Better therefore that democracy is withdrawn altogether thorough the covert imposition of direct EU rule through a secret junta. The Joint Committee in Mrs May's Withdrawal (of Democracy) Bill is just the junta to do that, it is a masterpiece of bureaucratic cunning" [source].
"It was widely reported that Theresa May paid a visit to Angela Merkel in Berlin shortly before the Chequers meeting. What actually did they discuss? We weren't told at the time. According to a confidential source who has seen a complete transcript of the meeting, the two leaders agreed to a plan that Mrs may allegedly told the Chancellor would 'appease' Brexit voters while nonetheless enabling her to get rid of those Tories who were (in her words) 'against progress and unity on the EU'. According to the transcript, Mrs May is also reported to have agreed 'to keep as many EU laws and institutions in effect as she could despite the current groundswell of anti-EU hysteria in Britain (again, apparently her words). It is claimed that both leaders agreed that the only realistic future for the UK was as a member of the EU, and that in the likely course of events Britain would rejoin the EU in full at some time after the next general election" [source].
Battle is Fierce, Friends
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"

"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).
