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]

 

The Referendum Question:
Should the United Kingdom Remain a Member of the EU or Leave the EU?

"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].

 

Overviews and General Discussions

Dying War Veteran's Final Wish: 'Post My Leave Vote'  (22 June 2016)

"When Leonard Moore, a Second World War submariner, knew that he was dying he made sure his family knew his final wish. He had registered for a postal vote, had put a tick in a box and his last words were 'post my Leave vote'. After his death, aged 91, on June 1 his family honoured his wishes. ... 'He believed what he fought for wasn't what we have now. He was so passionate about England'..."

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13)

"Leonard Moore. His dying wish is to help save England once more"    /    "How sad it is that their generation fought nazis so that our generation can now be called 'nazis'."    /    "Rest in peace, Mr. Moore. You've fired your last volley, but the battle rages on"    /    "May this brother rest in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior. Rest well, Brother, your watch is over"    /    "The young men of Britain have an opportunity to do just as much as this fine man did and all they have to do is go to the polls tomorrow and vote leave. It'll be time to repay the blood, toil, tears, and sweat of the World War II generation and throw off the chains of Berlin and Brussels"    /    "The Brexit campaign will determine whether your men who gave their lives for Britain at Hastings, repelling Viking invaders, Agincourt, stopping the Spanish Armada, Trafalgar, Waterloo, the Somme, in the skies at the Battle of Britain, El Alamein, Arnhem... shall or shall not 'have died in vain. Choose well"    /    "Rest in peace, Mr Moore. Thank you for helping to defeat the fascists"    /    "...and thank you for continuing to help defeat the new fascists"    /    "Whatever the outcome tomorrow and in the months and years to come, we're in it 'for the duration', and we won't settle for anything less than full independence and national sovereignty. Anything less wouldn't just be a surrender to our enemies; it would be far, far worse. It would be a betrayal of men like you, and of the women who backed you to the hilt. RIP Leonard"    /    "G-d bless Leonard Moore, who started fighting for his country at age 17, and at 92 was bravely doing the same"    /    "It is still not easy to understand how any free people would consent to be bound, as the British people are bound by membership of the EU. 'Lord, open the eyes of the British nation!'"    /    "I'm happy that Mr. Moore got his final say, and I hope his wish is granted. May Britain wake up to the sound of freedom this morning"    /    "God bless all who fought for our freedom. I pray we do not throw it away and shackle ourselves to the very people they gave their lives and youth for. Please vote OUT today" [readers' comments at source].

Today, June 23rd 2016 - Independence Day  (23 June 2016)

If You Truly Believe in Britain There's Only One Way to Vote Today...  (23 June 2016)

"My American friends at the Ricochet Podcast asked me the other day what exactly I meant by Britishness. In the last few years there have been some cringemaking official attempts to define this quality ... For me, though, all it means is a heartfelt sympathy with our island story - 1066; Magna Carta; the Civil War; the Glorious Revolution; Waterloo; 1940 'Our Finest Hour'; and so on; and an appreciation of the heroes and heroines who made it possible..."

Some Questions for Remainers  (23 June 2016)

Concerning our Sovereignty.  Concerning our Justice.  Concerning our Finances.  Concerning our Guests.

Together We Can Make Real Change  (22 June 2016)

"UKIP leader Nigel Farage has given his final set piece speech of the EU referendum campaign, a fight which he characterised as 'the people versus the establishment'..."

UK Was 'Sick Man of Europe' Now We're Racing Ahead - We Must Leave  (22nd June 2016)

"This country has always been at its greatest when we've looked outward, when we've steered a course for freedom and exploration - the great Elizabethan age, the Industrial Revolution, the spirit of Churchill. That was not the Britain which joined the Common Market in 1973 ... the bulldog had lost its bounce ... Now Britain is back. Free of the euro, we have raced ahead of the continent and beyond it ... for Britain, the EU has had its chance and it has had its day..."

Quote of the Day  (22 June 2016)

"Having right on one's side is no small thing, and we Brexiteers have it. The human desire for freedom and self-determination is not a fad or a passing fashion. It does not grow old, and despite the EU's continual attempts to snuff it out, it will only grow stronger the more the EU infringes on our right to exercise meaningful control over our lives and communities, and hold our leaders to proper account..."

Why We Must Vote Leave in the EU Referendum  (21 June 2016)

"Most importantly of all ... the British people must seriously consider what this EU will look like in 10 years. ... A few days after the EU referendum it's the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. We should never forget just how much [past] generations have sacrificed ... [and] what sort of future do we wish to leave our children and grandchildren? ... This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment. I believe in this country and its people..."

Why Britons Should Vote to Leave the EU  (20 June 2016)

"Later this week the British people will vote on whether to remain a self-governing democracy or to ratify their absorption into an undemocratic European polity. It may sound extreme to state the choice so bleakly, but that has been the immanent reality since 1950, when Clement Attlee, Labour's greatest prime minister ... rejected British membership in the proposed European Coal and Steel Community..."

There's a Faint Chance We May Get Our Nation Back One Day...  (19 June 2016)

"The part of the referendum campaign that has angered me most is this: the suggestion, repeatedly made by pro-EU persons, that there is something narrow, mean and small-minded about wanting to live in an independent country that makes its own laws and controls its own borders. I can think of no other country where the elite are so hostile to their own nation, and so contemptuous of it. I have spent many years trying to work out why this is..."

Lexit - the Movie  (19 June 2016)

"There are some great commentaries, not just from the usual Kate Hoey, but also George Galloway (never thought I would agree with him on anything), David Owen, Tony Benn and a whole lot of Labour commentators. Many points are well made, especially on mass immigration ... [and] how the EU doesn't really protect workers' rights..."

An Atmosphere of Contempt  (18 June 2016)

"Euroscepticism is not whipped up by the press. It is an authentic response to real problems. Transformative decisions have been taken without ever seeking consent from the public ... concerns [have been] cast aside, labelled and belittled. If there is an atmosphere of contempt, then it is born of the contempt shown to voters. It has been made clear over the last two decades that the views of the public do not matter. They are not listening to us, and they do not respect us. And it's not surprising either because look at who they are..."

The British People Have Risen At Last  (12 June 2016)

"If - as I think we will - we vote to leave the EU on June 23, a democratically elected Parliament, which wants to stay, will confront a force as great as itself - a national vote, equally democratic, which wants to quit. Are we about to find out what actually happens when as irresistible force meets an immovable object?..."

John Cleese in Epic Anti-EU Rant  (12 June 2016)

"Veteran British Comedian John Cleese has gone public with his support for Britain leaving the EU, and has revealed a remarkable plan for the continental power bloc to improve its ailing fortunes in the absence of Britain..."

Here's What My Vision of Britain Really Looks Like  (10 June 2016)

"The principle of self-government is more important to me than anything else. So many fought and died to preserve our democracy. It is precious. Yet our birthright has been handed away by the political establishment. Central to my vision of Britain after June 23 is that our Parliament is sovereign, empowered and able to make all of the big decisions, rather than leaving it to those unelected old men in Brussels. By leaving the EU, we would once again be a proper democracy. We would once again the ability to govern our own country..."

Exit Britain?  (06 June 2016)

"For at least a quarter of a century, there was no greater bore in British politics than the Eurobore, who warned against Britain's loss of sovereignty to Brussels. From the moment the HofC narrowly passed the Maastricht Treaty in the early 1990s, turning the EEC into the EU, the species could be sighted around Westminster. ... But for at least a generation, people said to be 'banging on about Europe' suffered from the political equivalent of halitosis. And then things began to change. Of course, nobody wanted to credit the fact, but over the course of recent years the wilderness dwellers began to assume the mantle of prophets..."

Dave's Waning Credibility Puts Remain in Jeopardy  (06 June 2016)

"It is called the trust thing. Whom do you trust to tell the truth about the EU? Is it the PM and his legions of intergalactic number crunchers, warning that the sky will fall in on June 24 if Britain votes to leave the EU. Or is it Boris Johnson and his merry Brexiteers, pointing to the sunlit uplands of a country freed from foreign rule?..."

Brexit Poll Bump: Populism Winning Across Europe... We're Not Going Away  (06 June 2016)

"Breitbart London Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam has said the recent poll surge for Leave in the EU referendum campaign shows how 'populist' ideas on immigration and nationhood can win out over Establishment scaremongering..."

Brexit: The Unique Perspective from Liberty GB  (05 June 2016)

"Possibly the most alarming development yet in the EU's never-ending quest to tighten its grip around the throat of our nation-state democracies and to choke the life out of our ever-diminishing freedoms, came to us last month from the desk of none other than the notorious and anti-democratic Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission..."

Battle for the Very Soul of Britain  (04 June 2016)

"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. ... I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently..."

What Happens If We Vote Remain?  (01 June 2016)

"If we vote to leave, we will have set in motion the means to regain control of our country and free ourselves to interact with the rest of the world as we see fit. If, however, we vote to remain in the EU then we can look forward to experiencing the wrath of the European Commission and the other EU institutions for having dared to question their supremacy in the governance of the nations of Europe..."

Why Do the Vicious Remain Campaigners Value Emotion Over Reason?  (21 May 2016)

"Like a lot of keen games-players I'm a stickler for the rules. this is not because I'm an especially honourable person; merely a recognition that without a rigorous structure and a sense of fair play, a game can be no fun and winning can afford no satisfaction. I feel much the same way about politics. Take Hilary Benn's recent contribution to the Brexit debate, wherein he professed to have taken grievous offence at Boris Johnson's use of the word 'Hitler' in an article about Europe..."

Why We Must Leave the European Union  (19 May 2016)

Why I'm Voting for Brexodus  (15 May 2016)

Remain or Leave? Leave or Remain?  (10 April 2016)  :-)

"There are those that want to keep the UK as part of the EU. And there are those that want the UK to leave the EU. With me so far? The cumbersome mechanics of a referendum (even an honest one - which it isn't and won't be) mean that only only side can win. Whichever side wins, ... everyone else will be disappointed and angry. Myself, I can see both sides of the coin. ... So, I'm going to put forward a way that both sides can win. It's simple. So simple, you'll think I'm a genius..."

EU Referendum: Who Speaks For You?  (17 March 2016)

"[D]emocracy has gone a bit pear shaped when it comes to the debate about whether the UK should 'Remain' in the EU, or 'Leave', the Union. The political class in Moray in particular, and in Scotland as a whole - the Scottish Nationalists, the Tories, the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party - have all decided to coalesce around a predetermined view: the UK will be better off remaining in the EU. Full stop. Too bad if you wish to explore the alternative option; nobody in Scottish politics is interested in your case..."

The British Are Going: 101 Days Until the UK's Very Own Independence Day From the EU  (15 March 2016)

Farage for Breitbart  (22 January 2016)

"The relationship between the big corporates and governments and the even bigger government of the EU is there for all to see. When they fail, as they did in 2008, their friends in power come to their assistance. And so it is here. The EU is one of the biggest corporatist clubs that mankind has ever seen..."

Cameron Fiddles While EU Plans Massive Power Grab  (15 January 2016)

"Don't believe the spin. The EU's drive towards centralisation continues at break-neck speed. This was illustrated just last night when a report - an ultimate EU wish list - was discussed in the European parliament by the federalist fanatics in Brussels..."

The National Interest  (January 2016)

"This brisk paper by Dr Lee Rotherham makes the cogent case for the UK leaving the EU and negotiating a brand new relationship with EU institutions. It helpfully lists the significant range of options and precedents available, as the EU already has different arrangements of all shapes and sizes with countries in Europe and around the world..."

One Rational Argument in Favour of Staying in the EU? Please?  (20 December 2015)

"Dave hasn't so much as declared his hand as confirmed it: he'll campaign for staying in no matter what. If the Commission demands that the Queen abdicate, Dave will campaign for staying. If the demand is that Britain transfer her whole nuclear deterrent to the EU, he'll campaign for staying. If we're told to accept at least five million Muslims next year... well, you get the picture. ... let's look at the arguments put forth in support of staying - and pretend they're offered in good faith..."

Why Britain Needs to Leave the EU  (06 November 2015)

"We will soon have to make up our minds in a referendum as to whether Mr. Cameron's renegotiation with the EU has been worthwhile and whether we should vote to continue to be a member of the EU or whether we should leave. We at UKIP do not believe it will be possible for Mr. Cameron to achieve any meaningful changes to our relationship with the EU, and here are a few reasons why we believe we should vote to leave:..."

Remember, Remember, the Fifth of November - It Speaks To Us Today  (05 November 2015)

"Anyone taking their cue from the the mainstream media would imagine that Guy Fawkes night is merely an archaic piece of religious bigotry. The papers and airwaves are alive with mediafolk and politicos tut-tutting over the 'anti-Catholic festival', with the more advanced liberal bigots amongst them musing whether it should be banned as it 'incites hate', ... The truth, as ever with liberal bigots, is the exact opposite of what they claim. ... The festival has renewed relevance today ... Today Britain is subject to a foreign power (the EU) to whom she pays an annual tribute and from whom she suffers constant interference with her internal affairs..."

Brexit Through EU Eyes: It Ain't a Pretty Sight  (05 November 2015)

"UK-hating propaganda mills, such as the Grauniad, the (EU-funded) BBC, and the Times have, together, infected the UK with a catchy meme: the UK needs the EU more than the EU needs the UK. ... But is this meme true? As an objective statement, it's obviously not true. The problem, though, is that catchy memes don't need to be true to be adopted as common knowledge. ... I want to consider how the needy-UK meme is perceived, first from the UK's perspective, which comes pre-loaded with fear mongering and the Islington presumption of hate for our own beautiful culture and nation, and then from the sordid and terrified perspective of the EU..."

Britain's Independence Day  (04 July 2015)

"Imagine it - hate it as they must have done, we've finally forced our Europhile politicians to give us, the British people, a Referendum on our membership of the European Union, a straight IN/OUT Referendum. And we've voted OUT!  We're free at last! No longer ruled by a group dictatorship, Britain will be back to the democracy her people have fought for over so many generations..."

Say N.O. to the E.U.  (21 June 2015)

"The EU referendum question is yet to be finalised but Cameron is itching to lumber the Out camp with the 'No' option. Fair enough. Cameron is the EU's man in Whitehall so no surprises there. The challenge to those who believe in the UK will be to make 'No' look cool; to make 'No' the new black. That won't be as difficult as it might seem..."

You Say Euro-, I Say EU-, And That Matters  (04 June 2015)

"What's a Europhile? Someone who loves Europe? I certainly think so. But, oddly, the term now defines someone who loves the European Union, not Europe. I say oddly because, in my experience those who love the EU actually hate Europe with a passion. Their hatred runs so deep that they want to replace a beautiful, mature and diverse continent with a pastiche of homogenous, nation-destroying technocratic regions devoid of all vitality, democracy, diversity, and cultural and national identity. The bizarre truth is that the object of their love - the EU - has no connection to Europe at all beyond its name..."

Six Predictions for That EU Vote  (31 May 2015)

"Now that David Cameron has finally pressed the button on his long-promised negotiation of a 'new relationship for Britain' with 'a reformed EU', to be put to an in-out referendum perhaps as early as next year, six things seem pretty certain about what is likely to happen..."

EU Referendum: Ask the Right Questions  (28 May 2015)

"As I write, I'm still not quite sure what the EU referendum question will be. But 'Do you agree that Britain should stay in the EU?' seems a likely option - with all the advantage of 'positivity bias' accruing to the 'IN' Campaign. That's wrong, but I suspect there's little we can do about it. meantime, I'd like to suggest some alternative questions..."

Referendum?  (24 May 2015)

As Of Now, Chances Are Cameron Will Lose EU Referendum  (22 May 2015)

"Prime Minister David Cameron flew off to Friday's summit of EU leaders in Latvia with the tail wind of his election victory and the head wind of Thursday's immigration figures leaving the whole question of whether Britain will ultimately vote to stay in or quit the European Union in 2017 pretty much where it was before the election..."

The UK and the European Union: The Facts  (No Date)

Seven Reasons Why We Should Leave the EU  (No Date)

"It is not just about the Euro. Or the fact that we're having to bailout a currency we chose not to join. It is not the Euro sclerosis - the fact the the trade block we joined in the early 1970s which then accounted for 36% of world GDP, will account for less than 15% in 2020. It is not even really about the anti-democratic nature of having decisions made for [us] in Brussels. ... No. The reason we need to quit the EU is even more elemental than all that..."

How the EU Affects Your Life  (No Date)

Sovereignty

None Dare Call It Fascism  (22 June 2016)

"The Elizabethan poet Sir John Harrington uttered an eternal truth: 'Treason doth never prosper: what's the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.'  In other words, emotively pejorative designations no longer apply if those who merit them emerge victorious. Hence, because so far the EU has swept all before it, none dare call it fascist. However, fundamentally that's exactly what it is..."

EU Referendum: The Final Shot  (21 June 2016)

"The EU Referendum isn't about a European group hug; it's about retaining or relinquishing a way of life that our forebears' fought for - literally - over centuries. In one stroke of a pen on a ballot paper on Thursday, millions of my fellow citizens will vote to cede the sovereignty, freedom and democracy of the United Kingdom to a foreign oligarchy without a shot ever having been fired. One thousand years of the history of these isles will be scrubbed within a moment. In the fullness of time, we shall come to rue the day and may once again be forced to recover our freedom and democracy by force of arms. If, on 23 June 2016, the consensus is indeed for the UK to remain in the EU, history will show it to have been one of the blackest days in the annals of our nation. That so many people still seem to fail to comprehend this is utterly depressing..."

For Democracy and Freedom - Vote Leave  (21 June 2016)

"We will be clear about only one thing after the EU referendum on 23rd June. Either we will be living in a more democratic society, or we will not. This is just as it should be, given that this is a constitutional referendum focused not on particular economic or social policies or outcomes but on process, the process by which we organise and relate to democratic government ... There are risks and there will be consequences - either way - as to trade, GDP, immigration, unemployment, house prices, and so on, but not only are these almost impossible to assess or predict, they are also beside the main point. The main point is that we are voting about democracy, and democracy is about freedom, and democracy and freedom matter..."

Brexit is About National Identity vs Globalist Conformity to the Liberal, Left Agenda  (19 June 2016)

"Despite being clearly at odds with Sir Ian [McKellen] on many issues, I find it somewhat refreshing to find someone on the Remain side who is prepared to categorise the vote for what it really is: globalism versus sovereignty. It actually makes a pleasant change from listening to those who try so hard to convince us that we can be part of the EU and still retain sovereign statehood. We can't. Either we take up our position as a region/colony/vassal of the EU ... which is itself a mere colony of the Globalist Empire ... or we go back to being an independent nation-state..."

The Petition to Cancel the EU Referendum Showcases the Remain Campaign's Dim View of Democracy  (19 June 2016)

Title of Petition started on 2nd March 2016: Cancel the Planned Referendum on Britain's Continued Membership of the EU.  "The text read: '444MPs of (almost) all parties have declared their support for Britain staying a member of the European Union on the basis of the reform package negotiated by the PM ... Constituting more than 68% of the votes in the HoC, this represents a rare and overwhelming cross-party Parliamentary majority'.  The divergence between the strong preference of most MPs and the sentiment of the British people is the main reason we are having this EU referendum, not a reason to cancel it ... the whole purpose of this referendum is to settle what is in effect a dispute between past and present parliaments on the one hand, and the British people on the other. ... the very existence of this petition shows a contempt for the will of the British people..."

Brexit: Facts Not Fear  (14 June 2016)

"In the official government pamphlet urging us to vote 'Yes' in 1975, the British people were given a guaranteed that no law could be imposed on them without the consent of their elected representatives. 'No important new policy can be decided in Brussels or anywhere else without the consent of a British Minister answerable to a British Government and British Parliament... The Minister representing Britain can veto any proposal for a new law or new tax if he considers it to be against British interests.'  That 'veto' turned out to be a figment of the government's imagination..."

Battle for the Very Soul of Britain  (04 June 2016)

"If the EU wins this vote, what will be the point of being British? What will be the point of having a national flag, an Army, even a Crown? Already the first two words on the front of our passports are 'European Union'. The Queen's head on our stamps will become meaningless. The royal imprimatur on land documents, in our courts, in our Parliament, will become no more than symbols of a shrivelled power..."

Liz Mountbatten, EU Citizen  (19 May 2016)

"One wonders how Her Majesty really feels about the de facto change in her legal status. Surely she knows that a single European state makes a mockery of her sovereignty over her realm? That, should it arrive, our ancient constitution will no longer be worth the paper it isn't written on? That, if our spivs' frantic efforts to rig the referendum succeed, such a state definitely will arrive? Of course she does. Of course she hated every vapid word put into her mouth by a PM with the puny intellect and petty selfishness of a child and the moral sense of a skunk - and I hope my neighbourhood skunks won't take too much of an offence at this comparison..."

Brexit is About Democracy. If Remain Wins on June 23, European Democracy is Over  (17 May 2016)

Signing Away Our Soul - What Europhiles Don't Want Us To Know  (16 May 2016)

"The EU Referendum looms ever closer, with increasingly horrific prognoses and predictions, ranging from recession (mild) to world war (catastrophic). Now Boris Johnson has further stirred the water by comparing the EU's aims to those of Hitler, claiming a similar plan to unify Europe under a single authority. Remainians say the comparison is offensive and desperate, but is Boris right? It would appear that the answer to that, given a recent report which notably has not been brought to the attention of the general public, may be yes..."

Europe's House of Cards  (02 May 2016)

"So far, the EU referendum debate has been channelled mainly along the lines of immigration and money. Both are of course very important considerations as to whether the EU is a good thing for Britain or not. However, there is also another consideration that so far has been ignored and that is, will the EU stand the test of time? And, if not, wouldn't leaving now be better than waiting till the whole thing falls apart?..."

It has come to this - that the PM of one of the largest donor countries in the EU has been going around EU capitals, begging humbly for a hearing, asking to be allowed to keep some paltry sums. That is what is so enraging. The fact that he has been scurrying around the EU capitals in the way he did to 'achieve' this is truly despicable. Those who fought and died in the real 'battle of Britain' are turning in the their graves!..."

Spurious Arguments About the EU Are A Sign Of The Times  (05 January 2016)

"There's something fatuous and dishonest about arguing for or against Brexit simply on the basis of economics. The EU is a political, not, as its champions claim, an economic construct. Economic tools are used there only as auxiliary means of either bribery or blackmail. Hence logically any argument about Brexit should proceed from constitutional and sovereignty premises first, second and tenth. There can be no valid argument in favour of reversing two millennia of constitutional history for whatever economic gain..."

EU Law - The ECJ and Primacy Over National Laws  (No Date)

"Many treaties bind states with rules at the internal or external level - but it is this internal penetration which marks out the European treaties (formerly the Treaty of Rome) as different from other treaties. In fact, this internal penetration is a classic characteristic, not of international treaties, but of the internal constitutional arrangements of federal states. And like a federal state, the EU has its own supreme court, the ECJ, which has ultimate power of decision over both the content and the scope of EU law. This court is not a neutral or impartial interpreter of the rules..."

The Background: The Constitutional Crisis  (No Date)

"Through membership of the EU, the UN and other supranational organisations successive British Governments have given away your democratic rights and refused to govern for the benefit of the British people. ...

None of these changes to our democratic constitution was made with the authority of the British people. British Freedoms and Democratic Rights, forged over centuries of battle at home and abroad are being improperly withheld..."

Ignore at Your Peril!  (18 May 2016)

"The biggest single factor threat to us winning our freedom on June 23rd is ignorance - the ignorance of the voters about what our continuing membership in the EU monster will mean for them personally. While the pundits and politicians are busy scaring us to Remain, with their ludicrous arguments about war in Europe and ISIS liking BREXIT, or that we'll have to eat grass if we LEAVE, the most important, really frightening reason to Leave hasn't even penetrated the public consciousness..."

European Human Rights Court 'Going Easy on UK' in Run Up to Referendum  (02 May 2016)

"European courts appear to be going easy on the UK in the run up to the Brexit referendum because they are scared of provoking voters into choosing to leave the EU.

Be Afraid - Be Very Afraid!  (08 April 2016)

"Like murder, one always thinks such horror couldn't happen to ordinary people like us. That's why so many think what the EU, what our governments have done to our centuries-old judiciary system in the name of 'ever closer union' and 'reform' doesn't really affect us that much. Sorry - it does, and it's worse than unsuspecting people think. Here are two examples:..."

History of the EU's Attempt to Take Over UK Criminal Justice  (06 February 2016)

"In April 1997, at a specifically convened seminar in Spain, the EU Commission unveiled its 'Corpus Juris project', for a single system of criminal law for the whole of Europe, based entirely on Napoleonic-inquisitorial principles. It takes the form of an embryo criminal code. It would sweep away our own Magna Carta based system, and in particular our Trial by Jury and Lay Magistrates (art. 26.1), our Habeas Corpus (art. 20.3g), our protection against double jeopardy (art. 27.2)..."

"There is one word which thinking Brexiteers will do almost anything to avoid using to describe an opponent, however much they may want to: the T-Word. While sanctimonious, virtue-signalling EU apologists are often quite happy to sneer at eurosceptics and make baseless charges of xenophobia and racism (accusations which can do grave real-world reputational damage in the modern world, Brexiteers are generally much more reticent to deploy their own nuclear word..."

The EU Links of Pro-Remain Fat Cats  (15 June 2016)

"George Osborne has threatened to raise taxes and cut spending if we vote for Brexit. However, some of the organisations producing the doom-laden economic evidence which could justify these threats may have a conflict of interest. This would not only bring their own research into question, but also the judgement of a chancellor ... such a situation is not illegal, but most accept it should be avoided to maintain independence and impartiality while guarding against corruption and bias. So, what of the economic research that might support Osborne's drastic measures?..."

The Banking Industry is Global and Will Continue to Thrive in Britain Post-Brexit  (10 March 2016)

"HSBC previously warned it would relocate in the event of Brexit, until the board voted to remain in the UK in a decision that drew a line under almost a year of uncertainty over the future of Europe's biggest bank.

Brexit, Schmexit - All Irrelevant Without Islamexit  (23 June 2016)

"In 2011, 4.5% of England was Muslim. Now, it is nearly 5.4%. This is an increase of 20% in just five years, and growing. There's a reason London elected its first Muslim mayor. In some parts of London, Muslims are nearly half the population ... As of January 2014, one in every ten babies born in England was Muslim ... Trend models show that by 2051, just 35 years from now, half of the UK will be Muslim. The Muslims already in Great Britain, like Muslims everywhere, have zillions of kids. ... If I were a Brit, I'd vote for the Brexit. But again, it's like voting about a paper cut, when Muslims are about to behead you."

Immigration... The EU's Weapon of Choice?  (19 June 2016)

Letter to a 65 Year Old Briton Living in Britain 2080  (02 September 2015)

"I think my generation has had the best of it you know; by that I mean the Britain I was born into, which was battered and bruised after the Second World War but still ruled itself as an independent nation with a very strong sense of history, identity and pride. It wasn't easy in the post-war years with rationing and privations. However, every kid in my working-class school knew exactly the calibre of the country to which they belonged, and which unquestionably belonged to THEM; and they knew what it had achieved. ... We were unaware that the country our fathers, grandfathers and uncles had fought to save from enemy invasion was going to be invaded anyway..."

What possessed him to persuade to promise to cut immigration to tens of thousands a year when he knew he had no powers to restrict immigration from within the EU?  There are 440 million people living in other EU countries and there is absolutely nothing which the Government can do to stop any of them coming to Britain..."

The Only Way is Swiss: How We Can Regain Control of Our Borders  (23 December 2013)

"Switzerland controls its own borders while maintaining friendly relations with its European neighbours ... We need an immigration policy modelled on the Swiss arrangement. But, because we are a member of the EU, we have been forced to surrender control of our own borders and we are powerless to halt a new wave of immigration from Romania and Bulgaria when the transitional controls on these EU citizens are lifted on January 1. The result of our open door policy is the arrival of 157,000 EU immigrants on our shores every year, while Commonwealth citizens with established family ties in Britain are struggling to obtain visas to come here..."

"Along with immigration and tax issues, the potential creation of an EU army has been one of the main complaints from anti-EU campaigners. ... Media reports claim a white paper on the EU army has already been drawn up by Berlin - but hoped to keep the plans secret until after June 23. But the proposals have been leaked..."

Hidden Plans For EU Army Command Centre Leaked Ahead of Brexit Vote  (27 May 2016)

"Federica Mogherini, head of foreign policy in the EU, has allegedly spent years preparing the plans, conveniently due to be discussed by EU leaders just one week after Britain's referendum. The plans will, of course, be seen as a major power grab, and an incursion on national sovereignty and the effectiveness of NATO in the lead up to the Brexit vote - thus the secrecy. The UK vetoed similar proposals in 2011, and David Cameron and the Ministry of Defence continue to deny an EU army is possible..."

 

Scotland

EU Referendum: Who Speaks For You?  (17 March 2016)

"[D]emocracy has gone a bit pear shaped when it comes to the debate about whether the UK should 'Remain' in the EU, or 'Leave', the Union. The political class in Moray in particular, and in Scotland as a whole - the Scottish Nationalists, the Tories, the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party - have all decided to coalesce around a predetermined view: the UK will be better off remaining in the EU. Full stop. Too bad if you wish to explore the alternative option; nobody in Scottish politics is interested in your case..."

The SNP is Not a Nationalist Party, and That's Why They'll Campaign to Give Scotland to the EU  (13 March 2016)

"Nicola Sturgeon is happy for Scotland to be a tiny member state, even province, of the emerging EU state; not in control of her laws or her territorial waters; and potentially to be forced to sign up to a treaty that will commit Scotland to join the euro. ... Scotland inside the EU would not be independent. The SNP are not a nationalist party. They will be campaigning on June 23rd against independence for the United Kingdom, including Scotland..."

Euroscepticism in Scotland Soars to Record High  (24 February 2016)

Young People Have Most to Lose in the EU  (No Date)

"Mass youth unemployment began in Britain in the mid 1970s when we joined the EU ... It is deeply unnatural and takes away pride and hope and skill and causes mental illness and anguish early in life. Youth suicide rates are on the rise right across the EU ... In some EU countries there is 50% youth unemployment. This sucks life out of the economy and hope out of a generation..."

"In the wake of a potential 'Brexit' a top French lawyer ... called direct democracy 'populist suicide' and claimed that people's opinions in the internet era are invalid ... criticising European elites for having 'bought into the simplistic, demagogic' argument that Europeans should have a say in how they are ruled..."

Cameron's Elite Will Stop at Nothing to Win This EU Referendum: Here's Why We Mustn't Let Them  (22 June 2016)

"Why [this referendum] matters above all is that it's the last chance most of us are ever going to get in our lifetime to vote for an outcome which is genuinely in the interest of us the people - the demos - rather than that of the increasingly powerful, ever-more-deeply-entrenched elite. Whether you  consider yourself on the political left or the political right really doesn't matter as far as this particular referendum is concerned. I'm proud to be in the company of of Labour MPs like Kate Hoey and Gisela Stuart and, of of lefty rabble rousers like the turbulent priest Giles Frazer because they feel as passionately as we Ukippers and Conservatives do that democracy is all that prevents powerful elites trampling all over us..."

Dr. Herbert London: Brexit Part of Worldwide 'Populist Uprisings' Against Globalist Bureaucracies  (22 June 2016)

"'We are seeing, percolating under the surface, all kinds of new movements, that I think in some ways are dangerous, in some ways are appropriate, in some ways democratic, and in some ways anti-democratic. But there is great change on the horizon, and we are living thorough it, even though it's sometimes difficult to recognize."

'Every EU Member Should Have a Referendum'...  (22 June 2016)

"'We want all the peoples of Europe to take back these liberties. The will of the people has to be respected.' ... 'our politicians governing today no longer look after their own people. Away with these incompetent and unwilling politicians'."

Remain Have Revealed Their Own Hateful Prejudices  (20 June 2016)

"This is now the key Remain outlook: where We, being clever, have considered all the facts. They, being dim, are howling and emoting rather than thinking things through. ... It's the view that has informed every elite feeling of agitation with the expansion of democracy ... This snobbery now finds expression in the Remain camp ... As part of this sneering at the emotional public and their sewer-like minds, certain constituencies are being singled out for special ridicule. The old, for example. The ageism of the Remain side has been astonishing. ... And then there's the white working classes, such a terrible disappointment to the well-to-do leftists of the Remain side. Surveys consistently show that around 60% of those in the two lower social classes want to leave the EU. Barely a day passes without an anthropological-style article in the Guardian trying to work out why these voters are so fearful and angry and emotional (they can't possibly be rationally anti-EU) ... and their temerity to reject the 'facts' of Polly [Toynbee] and her band of 'eager young London graduates'. Seriously, can these people hear themselves?..."

Convinced by Unreality  (18 June 2016)

"'It's not ... entirely surprising that the people are reacting strongly against the EU, the epitome of an elitist institution: a technocratic bureaucracy designed to remove many questions from the democratic control of voters in the constituent countries ... Elites shouldn't be too shocked when ordinary people respond: ... "But you see, I don't trust you anymore".'..."

The Arrogant Labour Party Pathologises Pro-Brexit Working Class Sentiment  (16 June 2016)

"Owen Jones ... the 'Chavs' author frets that 'working class Britons feel Brexity and betrayed'.  [He] doesn't say that working class people have conducted a rational assessment of their social, material and economic interests and decided that Britain would be better off outside the EU, in the way that a middle-class professional might deliberate and weigh their options. No, when it comes to working class people, they just 'feel Brexity', like babies might feel gassy after feeding, or tetchy while teething - a simplistic emotion or reflex, not a considered thought..."

The Immediate Consequences of Brexit  (24 May 2016)

"Despite apocalyptic warnings of the 'In' crowd, on 24 June this country will still feel largely the same: people will still go to work, the shops will still be open, and David Cameron will even still be Prime Minster. The question of what Brexit would like look has been answered by [various] MEPs ... but, of course, the essence of our position is that, once we've returned to being a grown-up democracy, the British people, through their elected representatives, would decide. What, however, would be the short-term trade consequences of Brexit?..."

Brexit Would be Catalyst for Better British Laws, Say Senior Officials  (19 March 2016)

"In preparation for a possible Brexit vote, civil servants are preparing government departments for the most ground-breaking shake-up of the British state structure since the Second World War.  They say a Brexit would allow Britain to be released from the 'shackles' of the 'European corpse'. Decades of existing legislation on almost every area of life, imposed on Britain by Eurocrats over the years, would need to be unpicked - and that would create the perfect opportunity for ministers and civil servants to question the need for each and every ruling during a vast 'de-accession' process..."

What's the Plan?  (20 January 2016)

"Have you heard a convincing argument for remaining in the EU yet? Forget convincing. Have you heard a valid argument for remaining in the EU? I'm yet to hear one. There's a lot of noise emanating from the usual pro-EU suspects, but all of it, all of it, can be boiled down to half-truths, scaremongering or simply attributing benefits to our EU membership that aren't in fact dependent on EU membership at all..."

'We Can't Leave the EU' Myth Debunked  (22 May 2015)

The IEA Brexit Prize: A Blueprint for Britain - Openness Not Isolation  (09 April 2014)

Iain Mansfield Named Winner of IEA Brexit Prize  (08 April 2014)

"His winning entry calls for the UK to join the EFTA, as well for the introduction of a 'Great Repeal Bill' to bring about a comprehensive review and, where appropriate, repeal, of EU regulations. These measures would prevent economic shocks in trade and would reduce the bureaucratic burden on British business, unshackling the wider economy. It concludes that a Brexit must ultimately be a political rather than an economic decision, yet calculates that if it occurred, the UK economy would experience a 1.3bn increase in GDP. Significantly fewer regulations, coupled with greater trade with emerging economies, could provide an overwhelmingly positive future outlook for an independent Britain..."

Remain Campaigners Jeer British Independence as BoJo's Rousing Speech Wins Standing Ovation  (22 June 2016)

"Boris Johnson stole the debate last night with his closing speech urging voters to make Thursday Britain's 'Independence Day' - a rousing call for democracy, self-belief and sovereignty which was booed by Remain supporters. ... [His closing speech] won the loudest most sustained cheers of the night, and the only standing ovation. Remain supporters in Wembley Arena were so enraged they felt the need to boo and jeer..."

The Debate That Never Was...  (20 June 2016)

"The plan was simple. Just four days before the EU Referendum, the BBC would provide a special BBC Question Time forum for David Cameron to proclaim that a surging Remain campaign will win.

Farage v Cameron: Anatomy of a MSM Mugging  (08 June 2016)

"Last night we had the long awaited Farage v Cameron ITV Referendum 'debate'.  Not really a debate as such, because Cameron has consistently wimped out, most recently from challenges by Michael Gove and Boris Johnson. Instead, we had to put up with a highly choreographed mainstream media mugging, posing as an audience 'Q & A' session. Farage went first and it was clear early on that this would be a rough night. ... Here is a dissection of how they carried out the mugging:..."

"There are a million reasons to hate politics: the groupthink of the establishment is one of them. Cowardice is another. It's like being governed by jellyfish: spineless synchronised swimming in one terminal direction.

As a former Europe Minister, it pains me to say that I have reached a tipping point and concluded that it is in both our best interests and the EU's best interests that we seek our future in the wider world. ...

The EU 'Deal' Is a Political Stitch-Up  (21 February 2016)

"Almost everything about the EU debate so far has been a fraud. The 'Remain' campaign has lied to the public about what David Cameron achieved in his renegotiation.

EU Deal: Who is Left to Hail David Cameron's Puny Gains as a Roman Triumph?  (20 February 2016)

"People will put up with a great deal of play-acting in politics if they think the master of ceremonies is here to stay. They too can play their parts and bask in the applause.

EU Deal: Any Self-Declared Eurosceptic Must Now Campaign for Brexit  (19 February 2016)

"According to some EU activists, David Cameron has secured the deal of the century. 'For the first time since 1975, a British PM has returned from a summit with more powers than when they arrived,' announced Conservatives for Reform in Europe, a group that includes 60 Tory MPs. Unfortunately, they made this announcement at 2.25pm, some seven-and-a-half hours before the deal was unveiled..."

The EU Has Just Called Cameron's Bluff - and Won  (19 February 2016)

"So in the end, David Cameron's attempt to renegotiate Britain's EU membership served to remind us of the case for leaving: the EU is designed in such a way that almost no sensible proposal can be passed. ... The resulting deal is a woeful substitute for the fundamental reform that he rightly set out to achieve. They called his bluff, which is bad in itself. But worse, he has now been sent back to London to try to call the bluff of his country..."

Grubbing for Pennies in the EU Mud  (19 February 2016)

"Have we lost our pride? ... It has come to this - that the PM of one of the largest donor countries in the EU has been going around EU capitals, begging humbly for a hearing, asking to be allowed to keep some paltry sums.

Beware the Rabbit in the Hat  (January 2016)

EU Referendum: We Must Quit Europe  (13 December 2015)

"With a referendum promised by the end of 2017, people are rightly asking whether Britain can thrive outside the EU. Well, we managed pretty well for hundreds of years before we joined the EU so it shouldn't be too difficult. We led the Industrial Revolution that transformed our economy and, eventually, much of the world. We brought democracy and the rule of law to countless countries through our Empire, which once covered a quarter of the Earth's surface. We crushed Napoleon's attempt to impose his version of European unity and won a war against fascism. Countries such as the US, Japan, and Australia run their own affairs without interference from abroad. They trade freely across the globe and cooperate with their allies. Britain can do the same, just as we did before 1973 - but first we have to quit the EU and take back control of our destiny..."

Cameron's Bogus Bargaining With Europe  (29 May 2015)

"The outcome of the referendum will decide whether Britain regains its full sovereignty and reasserts its right to self-determination as a free and independent democracy or commits to pan-European socialist federalism and the eventual governance of an unelected politburo-esque clique in Brussels. Given the monumental importance of the decision to be made, you would have hoped that just for once the political class would do the right thing and allow the referendum to be held n a fair and honest manner..."

France Talks EU Footie to Dave  (29 May 2015)

"Dave is currently on a trick-or-treat junket to Europe, or rather treat-and-trick. He wants the EU to treat him to a few ploys enabling him to trick us into voting Yes in the referendum. As any marketing man will tell you, respondents in any survey find it much easier to say Yes than No..."

At Last, Dave Triumphs Over the EU  (22 May 2015)

"As our re-elected PM embarks on a whirlwind tour behind EU lines, one hopes all those little-Englander vermin in Ukip feel suitably ashamed of themselves.

Petitions

PETITION:  David Cameron is Precluded from Negotiations with the EU in the Event of Brexit

"The Prime Minister has patently shown himself to be a total advocate of membership of the EU at any cost. In the event of Brexit, he should not be involved in any subsequent negotiations, nor be responsible for appointing representatives. Negotiators should be drawn from or appointed by a caucus of MPs who have consistently shewn themselves to be advocates of leaving the EU. The Electorate would have no confidence in Cameron's diligence in securing the full aims of the Referendum question to LEAVE the EU and NOT some alternative scheme that would leave the UK in any way tied to the EU 'Aquis' including rejoining EFTA/EEA. The only way that Britain should agree to trade with the EU is through a Free Trade Agreement under the WTO."

PETITION:  Stop Cameron Spending British Taxpayers' Money on Pro-EU Referendum Leaflets

"Prime Minister David Cameron plans to spend British taxpayers' money on a pro-EU document to be sent to every household in the United Kingdom in the run up to the EU Referendum. We believe voters deserve a fair referendum - without taxpayer-funded biased interceptions by the Government. We, the petitioners, demand the Government STOPS spending our money on biased campaigning to keep Britain inside the European Union. The Great British Public have waited since 1975 for a vote on our relationship with Brussels. No taxpayers' money should be spent on campaign literature to keep Britain inside the EU.  Sign this petition."

 

Liberty: the Battle for the Very Soul of Britain

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"

Norman and Saxon

"'My son,' said the Norman Baron, 'I am dying, and you will be heir to all the broad acres in England that William gave me for my share
when we conquered the Saxon at Hastings, and a nice little handful it is. But before you go over to rule it I want you to understand this:

"The Saxon is not like us Normans. His manners are not so polite. But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow with his sullen set eyes on your own, and grumbles, 'This isn't fair dealing,' my son, leave the Saxon alone.

"You can horsewhip your Gascony archers, or torture your Picardy spears; But don't try that game on the Saxon; you'll have the whole brood round your ears.
From the richest old Thane in the country to the poorest chained serf in the field, they'll be at you and on you like hornets, and, if you are wise, you will yield.

"But first you must master their language, their dialect, proverbs and songs. Don't trust any clerk to interpret when they come with the tale of their wrongs.
Let them know that you know what they're saying; let them feel that you know what to say. Yes, even when you want to go hunting, hear 'em out if it takes you all day.

"They'll drink every hour of the daylight and poach every hour of the dark. It's the sport not the rabbits they're after (we've plenty of game in the park).
Don't hang them or cut off their fingers. That's wasteful as well as unkind, for a hard-bitten, South-country poacher makes the best man-at-arms you can find.

"Appear with your wife and the children at their weddings and funeral and feasts. Be polite but not friendly to Bishops; be good to all poor parish priests.
Say 'we', 'us' and 'ours' when you're talking, instead of 'you fellows' and 'I'. Don't ride over seeds; keep your temper; and never you tell 'em a lie!"

[Poem by Rudyard Kipling]

 

Free Nations

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"

The Tower of Babel: EU / UN / NWO

"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).
