TIME TO GET OUT?

By David Vance On July 21st, 2012 at 12:44 pm

As you know, I firmly believe that the UK must leave the EU. No good will come from staying within this failed totalitarian project. Here’s a rather interesting angle on the issue;

“The only shot the pro-Brussels brigade have left in their locker is the claim that three million jobs in Britain depend on trade with the EU and could be lost if we left. This argument is nonsense. We import far more from other EU countries than we export to them and thus they would have no possible reason to put up the shutters on trade. In any case, continued free trade is guaranteed in European law for any country leaving the EU.

 Now this scare tactic has suffered a fresh body blow with a landmark moment being reached for ourexports: for the first time since the early Seventies we are exporting more to the rest of the world than to the EU. For the three months to May 2012 there was a 7.3 per cent fall in EU exports and a 13. per cent rise in non-EU exports. This trend is likely to accelerate as the eurozone remains mired in crisis, while other parts of the world economy –including many Commonwealth countries – go from strength to strength. With every passing month the fear factor will further recede and the clamour for a referendum will build. The EU is in terminal decline and the future for Britain lies as an outward-looking merchant nation trading once more with the whole world.

I entirely agree.  It’s a BIG world, lots of commercial opportunities outside the failed EU.

SOLVENCY ABUSE

By Pete Moore On June 18th, 2012 at 3:55 pm

One of the deliberate evils of quantitative easing in the last few years has been the lowering of pension fund annuities. It was a conscious act of mass plunder on behalf of the politially connected.

Don’t hold out any hope then that the traitors of Westminster will do anything about new EU pension rules, due to be inflicted on January 2014. They decree that our private pensions must hold higher amounts of government bonds than now. According to the Mail’s crib sheet, these are “safer” than “riskier” corporate bonds with higher rates of return. In reality, the peons cannot be trusted to buy the debt their children must repay, so the EU assumes control over our funds to make us do so.

The effect, according to Deloitte, “suggests annuity rates will plunge by between five and 20 per cent when the directive comes into force in January 2014. A £100,000 pension pot currently gives an income of £5,837, but once the regulations come into effect they will be between £292 and £1,167 a year worse off.”

The Mail quotes Dr Ros Altmann, director-general of Saga: “The EU rules will make the value of pensions fall further. Its a series of pieces of bad news for British pensioners. As a result of these rules everyone will get much less pension out of their fund. We don’t know exactly how much less. We are anxious that the UK Government should stand up for UK pensioners.”

Don’t be daft love! The British government exists to plunder us. It’s why all governments exist, to paint a respectable mask on that pack of thieves writ large. If ministers and MPs had to put up with the same pensions as the rest of us, well then we’d see some fight, but the priestly caste uses the law to live differently and, through force, violence and coercion, makes us pay for their priviledge.

The Secret Super-State

By Mike Cunningham On June 5th, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Many things have been written and spoken regarding the many failings of Gordon Brown, In fact, if they were all shuffled together, they would probably form a rather large book. But the one redeeming stance taken by Gordon Brown sets him up as possible the most unlikely saviour this sovereign Nation has ever known.

I refer to the decision to block any possible move by Blair towards joining the Euro.

Knowing the ‘Comrades’ and their beloved ‘Projects; as we now do, is it likely that Brown himself foresaw this, which is why he nearly resigned in order to prevent it?

As the old card game saying goes, “Read it and Weep”, for there are many in or adjacent to power today who still believe that the Euro is the only game in town!

IRELAND CHOOSES SERFDOM, AGAIN

By David Vance On June 1st, 2012 at 1:02 pm

The Irish seem to have learnt that when it comes to matters EU, they must vote YES, or else…

Voters in the Republic of Ireland have approved the EU fiscal pact, early unofficial results indicate. Both the “Yes” and “No” camps have now acknowledged that the treaty, aimed at enforcing budget rules in the eurozone, was approved in Thursday’s referendum. Tallies at count centres indicate a 60/40 split in favour of the agreement. Counting is still in progress in Ireland, the only eurozone state to hold a referendum on the pact. Official results will come early in the evening. Opinion polls had suggested a “Yes” camp win.

Angela Merkel will be pleased to know that even if Francois Hollande says NON to her austerity plan, the poor Irish always say YES!

WE WANT OUT!

By David Vance On May 17th, 2012 at 9:22 am

As the Eurozone lurches deeper and deeper into crisis, this is an interesting poll…

PUBLIC support for Britain remaining in the European Union has slumped to an all-time low. More than half of voters (54 per cent) think we should quit, while barely a third (34 per cent) want to stay in.   Each month YouGov quizzes 1,000 voters for the British Election Study.

So, if more than half of us want OUT, how about a referendum right now, Mr Cameron? Might it be that you are scared of what we will say once given the chance? The EU is going to collapse, so why stay IN when we can get OUT?

.and the dust is brushed under the carpet.

I listened to a short broadcast on the Today Programme  at around 07.17 which examined the history behind the commencement of the trial of Ratko Mladic, the planner and instigator of the Srebenica massacre. One piece of the short history of the siege of Sarajevo, as spoken by the BBC’s Alan Little, spoke volumes about our understanding of that war, in that hardly any of the atrocities carried out with precision by mainly the Serbs, but also the Croats, Bosniaks, Montenegrins and the Muslim portion of all three areas; were known about because everyone concentrated on Sarajevo. The ethnic cleansings, which resulted in the deaths of thousands of Muslims, Croats, latterly Serbs after the Croats became better-armed, are only now coming under scrutiny, albeit in a half-hearted way. The deadly statistics are better understood when taken in context, as in the statement by Nigel Rodley, expert from the United Kingdom when he recalled that only eight former Interior Ministry officials had been prosecuted for 49 crimes associated with the Batajnica massacre, whereas 889 bodies had been found in that area.

I write of these matters because we, as in our political membership of the European Union, have already welcomed in Croatia, despite the new member having to wipe the blood of the massacres off their boots, and are now preparing to welcome Serbia, despite their protection of Ratko Mladic for over fifteen years and Karadic for some 13 years.

Are we just going to shrug, and let bygones be bygones. The former black-clad killers sit in their homes, secure in the knowledge that their Serbian protectors are high in the Government, and after all, the dead are still dead, and the Croats, and the Muslims gave as good as they got, in their humble opinion.

So the welcome mat gets laid out, and the blood has already been washed away, and only the families remember!

THE VIEW FROM GERMANY…

Excellent article here from Der Spiegel.  Bye Bye Greece — back to your Drachma.

GREEK CHAOS

By David Vance On May 13th, 2012 at 10:22 am

It just gets worse by the day.

Greek President Karolos Papoulias has begun talks with the heads of the three main parties, in a last attempt to form a coalition and avert another election. All three – conservative New Democracy, far-left Syriza and socialist Pasok – have failed in bids to form coalitions. Voters deserted New Democracy and Pasok at last Sunday’s polls, amid anger over tough austerity measures imposed as part of an IMF-EU bailout deal. Polls suggest the popularity of anti-bailout Syriza continues to grow.

The EU demands Greece implement austerity. Greece refuses to implement austerity. Only ONE place for Greece to go – out!

THE PENSION POT

By David Vance On May 7th, 2012 at 9:41 am

As you know, the British pension scheme is basically bankrupt. We can thank Gordon Brown for a large part of that but don’t despair, I bring you good news;

“Britain faces paying pensions to all migrants under an EU plot to seize control of the benefits system. It would allow people who have never worked in this country to claim welfare and retirement cash. Last night the European Commission denied it was trying to harmonise social security systems, saying the deal would mean migrant workers were not put at a financial disadvantage when moving between states.”

Well, it would say that, wouldn’t it? The truth is that the EU will continue to try and seize control of ALL our residual sovereignty over issue such as Pensions and our only defence against this sustained onslaught is to leave the EU.  Yet all of three largest parties remain committed to keeping us locked into the system that corrodes our democracy and makes a joke out of our law.

TODAY IS EU SELF DESTRUCT TODAY – CELEBRATE!

By David Vance On May 6th, 2012 at 10:21 am

Interesting day ahead for European politics! France and Greece go to the polls. In both instances, this will be the first chance that either electorate gets to pass judgement on those politicians and parties who have presided over the Euro-mess of the past few years! I forecast Hollande will defeat Sarkozy in the French election and that the two major Greek Parties on the right and left will get a drubbing. In both cases, the electorate will reject “austerity” and instead support “investment”.

As you know “investment” is a EU-phemism for spending money that the Government does not have. The primary cause of the economic crisis afflicting the EU was central Governments spending that which they could not afford – today will see a massive endorsement for more of the same! We have an electorate satiated with Government largesse and demanding that it continues at all costs.  They will get their wish, with a vengeance. It’s clear that Germany aside, there is little desire from the other EU countries to ease off on the drug of Government spending and borrowing so the obvious consequence should be that Germany leaves the EU. That’s when the deck of cards will really collapse.
