BREXIT: THE MOVIE
"On June 23rd 2016, the British public will decide whether to remain a member of the EU.
Brexit: The Movie makes the case for Britain to LEAVE the EU"
BREXIT POLL TRACKER
"Britain's referendum on EU membership will be held on June 23rd.
The latest polling polling information for the 'Brexit' campaign can be found here"
"There have been four major attempts to have a single European state:
The Roman Empire, Charlemagne's Holy Roman Empire, Napoleon's First French Empire, Hitler's Third Reich.
The Nazi project was killed in 1945 or so we thought.
It has been reborn in conjunction with the Frankfurt School of Marxism as the European Union Project" [source]
"Our great nation ... will in practice take
over the leadership of Europe.
There are no two ways about that" [Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda]
"Europe's nations should be guided towards
the superstate without their people understanding what is happening.
This can be accomplished by successive steps, each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation"
[Jean Monnet, founding father of the EU]
"There is no question of any erosion of essential national sovereignty" [Edward Heath, PM of Britain, 1970-74]
"When it becomes serious, you have to lie" [Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission]
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters and, most important, immigration policy from this hopelessly undemocratic organisation in Brussels. ... But ... where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? ... something greater; something more essential? You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton" [source].
"...it is still rather thrilling to see the British people stirring at last after a long, long sleep" [source].
"BetterOffOut is a cross-party campaign that works to take Britain out of the EU. While we have supporters from politicians, business leaders and academics, our primary focus is on working with the great British public. We campaign right across the UK - manning market stalls, delivering leaflets and engaging with the public in every corner of the UK. BetterOffOut was founded in 2006 by the Freedom Association as a response to the proposed Constitutional Treaty (now reborn as the Lisbon Treaty) that legitimised further levels of integration into 'the European Project'. Since then, BetterOffOut has looked to put the positive case for why the UK should be independent of the EU. Whether it be concerning democracy, immigration, taxation or trade, the campaign has looked to illustrate what the effects of the EU are on the UK ... This has led to a range of thought-provoking publications that have illustrated the binds that the EU have placed the UK in. ... The mission of this campaign is to explain why the UK would be Better Off Out of the EU and to fight for the UK to regain its freedom and independence from the unelected and unaccountable EU"
"Our organisation was formed in 1969 as a cross-party coalition to oppose the UK's entry in the Common Market in 1973. Although we were unable to prevent this happening and did not succeed in reversing that decision in the 1975 referendum, we have continued to maintain that the UK should withdraw from what has now become the European Union. On this website, you will find not only much evidence to support our position but considerable analysis on how best to achieve a seamless withdrawal after being trapped for over 40 years in this mistaken political project."
"Get Britain Out is an independent, cross-party, grassroots Eurosceptic group campaigning to get the UK out of the EU. We want to restore UK Parliamentary democracy and take back control from the unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels. We want Great Britain to be free of EU interference, and we want to decide who can come into Britain by controlling our borders once again. The Prime Minister's so-called 'deal' in advance of the Referendum is pathetic and we must now fight to Get Britain Out of the EU as soon as possible."
"Grassroots Out (GO) is the national, cross-party, grassroots campaign ... made up from a significant number of politicians and supporters from across the political spectrum ... including Conservative, Labour, DUP MPs and UKIP MEPs ... with a single aim: to get the United Kingdom out of the European Union. GO ... brings together existing 'Leave' campaigns and gets them to work as one in local areas. We are an organisation that unites people from all political parties, and none, into one effective anti-EU ground campaign, which is working towards winning the referendum, door by door, vote by vote. This is a mass volunteer nationwide movement. If we are going to win this historic Referendum to release Britain from the European Superstate, everyone will have to play a part."
"In 1975, the British public voted 'yes' to a free trade deal with Europe. What they didn't vote for was 'United States of Europe'; one that would go on to crush our democracy, and in the process create a class of politicians clearly in it for themselves. ... We will always be a part of Europe. But the EU is run for big business, big banks and big politics - not for ordinary people. ... We believe Britain could do so much better outside of the EU."
"On 23 June, there will be a vote to decide whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union, or leave and take back control. It's a big decision - and there may not be another chance to vote for years. Technological and economic forces are changing the world fast. EU institutions cannot cope. We have lost control of vital policies. This is damaging. We need a new relationship. What happens if we 'leave'? We should negotiate a new UK-EU deal based on free trade and friendly cooperation. We end the supremacy of EU law. We regain control. We stop sending £350 million every week to Brussels and instead spend it on our priorities, like the NHS and science research. We regain our seats on international institutions like the World Trade Organisation so we are a more influential force for free trade and international cooperation. A vote to 'leave' and a better, friendlier relationship with the EU is much safer than giving Brussels more power and money every year. If we vote to remain in the EU, we'll be locked in the back of the car going somewhere we don't want to go. We'll keep subsidising other EU countries and losing more control every year. If we Vote Leave, UK laws will have ultimate authority and we will take back control. We'll be free to spend our money on our priorities. Which do you think is safer for you and your family?"
"Scottish Left Leave seeks to bring together organisations and individuals on the Left in Scotland to campaign for a Leave vote and do so on a platform that stresses the EU's anti-democratic character ... We believe that the EU's current policies and direction represent a fundamental denial of our democracy, and especially our economic democracy, and that EU membership will fatally compromise any progressive programmed of economic and democratic transformation whether Scotland is independent or not."
"UKIP believes that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland should only be governed by her own citizens [sic] and that its governance shall at all times be conducted first and foremost in the interests of the UK and its peoples and that the only laws that should apply within the jurisdiction of the UK are those wholly made by the Parliament of the UK. To that end it shall be the policy of the Party that the UK shall cease to be a member of the European Union and shall not thereafter make any treaty or join any international organisation which involves in any way the surrender of any part of the UK's sovereignty. The Party further believes that the integrity of the UK should be maintained."
"UKIP Daily is a news and commentary outlet for all things UKIP."
"While the EU stagnates, the UK has jobs, growth and investment. But Brussels waste is holding us back. Brussels is forcing zero hours contracts to prop up the failing Euro as part of their austerity regime. With the head of the world's largest car maker, Toyota announcing that his company's future lies firmly in the UK, even after we leave the EU, you know it makes sense to VOTE LEAVE. Every day, the EU costs is £50m. That's what the UK Treasury sends to Brussels every day. ... £350m every week. £19bn every year. We get less than half back, but Brussels stops us spending on our priorities in jobs, manufacturing, energy, transport, regeneration, agriculture and fisheries. And every year Brussels takes more powers away from us. As UK exports decline to the EU and soar to the rest of the world, we must look seriously at the price we are paying to be members of a declining club that wants more powers to dictate our future, The UK will be far better off freed from undemocratic Brussels rule."
"Conservatives for Britain is the campaign representing the large number of Conservative Party supporters who want to see a new relationship between Britain and the EU based on free trade and friendly co-operation, rather than political union. We are supported by thousands of Conservative Party councillors, members and supporters from all parts of the UK. Conservatives for Britain originally launched in June 2015 to help underscore the Prime Minister's renegotiation. Now that this process has only resulted in minor reforms, we are fully supporting the Vote Leave campaign in advocating a 'leave' vote in the forthcoming EU referendum. We take an optimistic, globalist view of Britain's future. We believe that Britain will both increase its global influence and be economically successful by taking back control from the EU. As we predicted at our launch in June, the EU has let us down so we will stand up for Britain."
"We believe power should be held as closely as possible to individuals and their communities, whether that's taking power from Westminster to local government - or from bureaucratic and unaccountable EU institutions to our elected parliaments and councils. We believe the EU's commitment to freedom and equality is too often only skin-deep. ... We believe the EU is too often run with the interests of large multinational companies at heart, rather than small businesses and individual citizens. ... The EU bureaucracy is too far removed from ordinary citizens for us to have any meaningful power over its decisions, with many crucial meetings held behind closed doors in the Council of Ministers. We reject the pro-EU argument that its undemocratic nature is a good thing, forcing rules on Britain that we might be less likely to agree ourselves. ... The insularity of the EU has meant that Britain has turned its back on the rest of the world, especially the Commonwealth. ... We believe the liberal principles of free and open trade are the best way of increasing prosperity in developing countries. But far from promoting trade, the EU imposes tariffs on countries like Africa and Central America, seeking to sell their goods to Britain..."
"We are a campaigning group which brings together lawyers interested in Britain's relationship with the EU. We draw support from solicitors, barristers, legal academics, retired judges and constitutional specialists. We believe that there needs to be a fundamental change in Britain's relationship with the EU. This could not be achieved until we voted to leave the current Treaties, and are now able to build a new and constructive relationship which preserves our trading links but restores our ability to be governed by our own laws. Our membership of the EU is governed by the European treaties, the powers of the EU Court and its other institutions. As lawyers we have a duty to explain these complex issues so that the debate on EU membership and what now replaces it is conducted on the basis of reason and informed understanding..."
"Business for Britain is an independent campaign, involving people from all political parties and none, calling for a leave vote in the forthcoming referendum on the UK's membership of the EU. Run by business people for business people, we believe that leaving the EU will create a better, fairer, more enterprising and prosperous United Kingdom. Free from unnecessary, restrictive and financially punitive regulation, able to make our own trade arrangements and to better invest our wasted EU 'tax', Britain will be the best place in the world to do business. The voice of Business is central to the debate on the UK's membership of the EU and Business for Britain has launched regional councils across the UK to ensure that companies of all sizes and sectors have their say on our membership of the EU. ... Business for Britain is supporting Vote Leave."
"Economists for Britain is a campaign headed by some of Britain's leading economists and economic commentators who believe there needs to be a substantial change in Britain's relationship with the EU. Via new research, speeches and seminars along with letters to the media we aim to inform the debate about Britain's EU membership, highlight some of the problems that exist today and suggest solutions for politicians and decision makers. Our research looks at the economic consequences of EU membership for the UK, ways we can reform the UK's membership of the EU and analyses the opportunities that lie for Britain in the wider world."
"Historians for Britain is a campaign headed by some of Britain's leading historians and academics who believe there needs to be a substantial change in Britain's relationship with the EU. Via new research, speeches and seminars along with letters to the media we aim to inform the debate about Britain's EU membership, highlight some of the problems that exist today and suggest solutions for today's politicians and decision makers. Our research looks at the historical myths that surround the EU and at Britain's troubled history with the Union. Our reports have exposed how former political leaders failed to tell the public about the consequences of EU membership."
"Students for Britain is a new campaign pushing for fundamental reform of Britain's relationship with the EU. The time has come to pick a side in this referendum, and we now feel that the only way to deliver fundamental reform to Britain's relationship with the EU is to leave. A vote to remain is a vote to continue to send £350 million to the EU every week, rather than spending it on our own priorities such as higher education and scientific research. We will be stuck with the lack of transparency or accountability of EU institutions. We will continue to be unable to make our own free trade agreements with the wider world. It is safer to Vote Leave, to take back control, end the supremacy of EU law, and ensure our country has a prosperous and independent future."
"Christians for Britain is a new campaign group set up and run by Christians for Christians to address the fundamental political and moral issue of 'Who governs Britain?'. This site ... explains the who, why and how of the coming campaign, which is both cross-party and ecumenical. We seek to offer a platform to represent British Christians of all denominations who believe that Britain would be better off leaving the EU. Insofar as the EU is anti-democratic, unaccountable, bureaucratic and opaque, we believe that the only way to restore democratic accountability and justice is to vote Leave. That way, our elected politicians will once again be free to enact or repeal legislation demanded by the British people, to whom sovereignty rightfully belongs. Europe is a natural; geographic entity: it is united by a shared history of organic, cultural and religious diversity. We have absolutely no problem with forging strong links with other European nations in pursuit of the continental and global good. But the EU is an artificial supranational construct which has ridden roughshod over the rights and liberties of the peoples of Europe time and again. Referendum results which do not accord with the EU's 'ever closer union' trajectory are discounted. Democratically-elected governments which do not abide by the fiscal rules of 'economic governance' are summarily replaced by Brussels technocrats. "In a true democracy, it is the people who decide which powers to lend their leaders. In a false democracy, it is the leaders who decide which freedoms to lend the people. The EU's bureaucratic, corporatist mindset is antithetical to the UK's democratic traditions and historic Christian values. ... Christians For Britain are not anti-European, anti-cooperation or anti-immigration: we simply believe that a vote to Leave would restore power to the people and allow us to make our own decisions about political policy and our national destiny."
"We believe in an optimistic vision of Britain and we hope to inspire a generation to make an informed and rational choice. We want to put forward the optimistic case for leaving - a truly global community, unlimited employment opportunities and a future with unleashed potential. While unemployment rates in EU states as a whole have dropped, youth unemployment is at an all-time high - reaching around 50% in Greece and Spain. Young Britons should never be in a position in which their generation is worse off than that of their parents. We can buck the trend by voting 'leave' and re-engaging with the world, looking beyond the continent to attract inward investment to unlock opportunities for our nation's young people..."
"Workers' rights are being eroded by the EU. The EU its turning human beings into commodities to be shunted around Europe while local workers are excluded from being able to provide for their families. TUAEU believes that the time is right to offer the peoples of Britain an alternative view of Europe outside of the EU. The working peoples of Europe are clearly not happy with the direction the EU is taking. The failure of the mainstream parties to represent this feeling has led to a political vacuum. We want to see a Europe of democratic states that value public services and does not offer them to profiteers; a Europe that guarantees the rights of workers and does not put the interests of big business above that of ordinary people. We believe this is not possible within the EU."
"Our objectives are: (1) to campaign vociferously for British withdrawal from the EU to allow the restoration of sovereignty to the British Parliament and with national control over the 200nm limit and all waters and resources therein, (2) to raise public awareness of the surrender of a valuable national resource and the ensuing decimation and plight wrought upon British fishing and dependant coastal communities, (3) to ensure in the event of a leave vote that, in the ensuing British withdrawal malevolent interests are held to account, and not One Ton of British fish is bartered away in the extrication process. ... We will detail the devastation wrought to the British fishing industry by the EU and show the betrayal of a critical national resource to a public, who remain largely unaware of this national tragedy. In undertaking this mission we aim to feed support and momentum to the wider 'Brexit' campaign. ... For too long Britain has been made to beg for the scraps of our own fish from the EU table. Therefore we appeal to each and every boat, business and individual to sign up to support and assist Fishing for Leave."
"The Bruges Group is an independent all-party think tank. Our independence is our strength allowing us to be free to follow our own policy agenda and put the national interest above party political considerations. Set up in 1989, its aim was to promote the idea of a less centralised European structure than that emerging in Brussels. ... Through its groundbreaking publications and wide-ranging discussions the Bruges Group has spearheaded the intellectual battle against the notion of ever closer union in Europe and will continue its fight against further integration and, above all, against British involvement in a single European state. ... The Bruges Group aims to promote discussion on the EU and to advance the education of the public on European affairs. The Bruges Group's research also explores alternative international relationships and policies. Equipping politicians, key opinion-formers and the media with the information needed for a complete restructuring of Britain's relationship with the other European countries."
"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 law and a predominant culture to which immigrants must gradually assimilate. Such are the achievements of 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 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 Freenations website has for nearly 20 years (and the founder, Rodney Atkinson's, work for some 35 years) exposed the powers behind this dangerous return to the past."
"For democracy to survive it is essential that the voters are told the truth by our political elite. They [are] not. It is [the political elite's] contention that having to grovel to the stupid public to get elected is a cause of great humiliation. They lie, use weasel words to deceive us voters and provide their bureaucrats with excessive rewards (civic bribery) to ensure their support with similar misinformation and malfeasance. The establishment have, in fact, lowered an 'iron curtain' between the facts of the EU and the citizens. The BBC and the media are just as complicit. Where they do give the facts they are distorted or truncated to give the reverse impression of what is the true situation. Of great importance is to use your vote. But you must use it with the knowledge of what you are voting for - not what the candidates say. This website is to provide that information on the European Frankenstein Union (by 'Frankenstein' Union I mean it is disparate countries stitched together with [by?] an evil brain. If you find it of interest and worthy of wider readership please forward it ton to all your contacts." [EMcD: Please be aware that on the home page a reader includes an anti-Zionist sentiment within a posted comment. Although the blogger doesn't address this sentiment in his reply to the commenter, from what we can see elsewhere in his writings he nowhere appears to share the commenter's view.]
"Britain has become a parochial and unambitious country. As globalisation advances into an exciting new era with a vast network of global bodies facilitating intergovernmental cooperation between independent nations, we are hindered by our parochial and submissive mind-set. By accepting our subordinate status we are sleepwalking into a post-democratic age and failing to grasp an opportunity to become an international force for progress ... We are becoming an illiberal, undemocratic, politically stagnant and conformist country and I believe this will worsen progressively if we remain subject to supranational government. Accepting our decline into a regional council of a European state will see further degradation and mediocritisation of our politics and our culture. We need a cultural revolution and a political revival. Leaving the EU is a necessary first step. To vote Remain is to cower from progress."
"Migration Watch UK is an independent and non-political think tank ... We believe that sustainable levels of properly managed immigration are of distinct benefit to our society. Many migrants make a valuable contribution to our society in terms of both their skills and experience. Britain also has a long history of welcoming genuine refugees which must continue; nowadays those granted protection comprise only about 10% of net immigration. At present immigration is neither sustainable nor well managed. In 2015 net migration was over 300,000. If net migration continues at recent levels the latest ONS statistics project that our population will increase by 500,000 per year - the equivalent of a new city the size of Liverpool every year. ... Our purpose is to monitor developments, conduct research, and provide the public with full and accurate facts placed in their proper context. We also make recommendations for policy. ... Unlike most organisations in this field, we receive no funds from the government in any form and have no intention of seeking any."
The Market Solution: An Exit Plan for the UK (08 January 2016 v.01)
"The purpose of this book is to set out the mechanisms the UK might employ in leaving the EU. It is a 'roadmap' to demonstrate that an orderly exit is both plausible and practical and largely risk-free. Originally produced as a submission to a competition organised by the IEA, this far more extensive version is written for the specific purpose of supporting the current referendum campaign. Without an effective and realistic exit plan, a 'leave' proposition is unlikely to prevail. ... Our intention is to show that an orderly withdrawal from the EU, using these procedures, is eminently practical and that there are mechanisms available which will allow us to capitalise on the opportunities afforded to us as a newly independent country. We argue that, in exploiting these opportunities, there need be no fears about the exit process. Far from taking a 'leap in the dark', we propose a series of measured steps in our continuing evolution as a global player in a multipolar world..."
Flexit: A Flexible Approach to Leaving the EU (20 December 2015)
"Our vision is for a United Kingdom as a self-governing, self-confident, free trading nation state, releasing the potential of its citizens [sic] through direct democratic control of both national and local government and providing maximum freedom and responsibility for its people. The history of Britain for a thousand years has been as a merchant and maritime power playing its full role in European and world affairs while living under its own laws. It is our view that the UK can flourish again as an independent state trading both with our friends in the EU and the rest of Europe, while developing other relationships throughout the world as trading patterns evolve..."
'European Demos': A Historical Myth? (2014/2015)
"Historians for Britain is an independent, non-partisan group established by Business for Britain, to represent the historians and academics who believe in a renegotiation of Britain's relationship with the EU, backed up by an In/Out referendum. ... The historical debate over Britain's EU membership s in dire straits. Talk to the historians who cover this period and you will soon hear about various myths, such as the well-known and fatuous assertion that the EU is solely responsible for peace in Europe, or the outright scaremongering about the economic consequences of securing a looser, freer relationship between and Britain and the EU. Political leaders in the continent, and even influential figures in Britain, frequently defend these myths, preventing academics from having a rigorous and thorough discussion about the pros and cons of EU membership..."
A Blueprint for Britain: Openness Not Isolation (April 2014)
"This paper assumes that, in the result of an 'out' vote, the Government of the day, regardless of party, would respect the position of the British populace in demanding a substantive change in the UK's relationship with the EU and would therefore not seek to essentially duplicate the current status via a series of bilateral treaties. Equally, it assumes that the purpose of leaving the EU would not be to reject everything connected with Europe, but simply to regain the sovereignty to choose which aspects of the EU and European law should apply in the UK. The paper further assumes that the objective of the Government upon exit is to promote a free and prosperous UK economy and that it would therefore wish to take steps to achieve this aim..."
"This pamphlet is to a large extent a response to a lie, or at any rate, a factoid. ... 'A factoid is a questionable or spurious statement presented as a fact, but with no veracity' [or] 'an item of unreliable information that is repeated so often that becomes accepted as fact.' The lie or factoid in question arose from a 1999 report by the NIESR on the costs and benefits of EU membership..."
"The EU and coming referendum is very important to the nation and its spiritual well-being, ... This referendum is a once in a generation event ... This booklet is not designed to address all of the endless political and economic arguments with regard to the EU; although it will contain some, it is intended to be a Christian perspective. While it addresses political issues, it is not intended to give a political opinion, but to look at the current situation and the choice before us, and to seek to understand the issues from a Christian perspective."

And Into the Fire: Fascist Elements in Post-War Europe and the Development of the EU (2015)
"This book reveals the Nazi and Fascist ideas and individuals in the foundation and governance of the European Union - and their influence today. The author describes the covert and antidemocratic methods chosen to destroy the constitutions of democratic nations states and the (entirely predicted) catastrophe of the Euro ... He describes how the rise of State and corporatist power over enterprise capitalism and democracy, and the appeasement of multinational companies and political institutions by national Governments removed democratic power from the people and prepared the way for a new corporatist fascist European Union. ... The book poses the alternative to the democratic and economic disaster of the EU - The Charter of the Free Nations of Europe." [For other books on the European Union by the same author, please see here.]
The Last Days of Britain: The Final Betrayal (2001)
"Over the past thirty years both Labour and Conservative governments have undermined the independence and sovereignty of Britain. This book explores these decades of dishonesty, as British independence has been shamefully handed over to a multi-national establishment with growing features of independent nationhood. Few in Britain, even at the highest levels, realise just how much power has already been forfeited. This book illustrates what power has gone and what little is left. Today, Britain is in danger of becoming a theme park of extinct traditions and monuments controlled by a cancerous Brussels bureaucracy."
Britain Held Hostage: The Coming Euro Dictatorship (1997/8)
"This book reveals who created the European Union and why. Even before the Second World War, British and American friends on high places planned one Europe. Resistance leaders fought for a superstate like Nazi Europe but without Hitler, but it took the Americans to make it happen. Today Britain has a new constitution, the Treaty of Rome; British law is subservient to European law. Shortly Britain will be a province in a German Europe. Proposals for one army and one police force are only the latest in a long line of 'small steps' leading to 'major consequences' for British voters. Soon the British will know they won the war but lost the peace."
The Principality and Power of Europe (1997)
"The right of the United Kingdom to remain independent politically, economically and religiously has been surrendered to Brussels without understanding or consent. The blind are leading the blind into an irreversible and irrevocable 'ever closer union'. This timely and lucid book throws light on the spiritual and political powers at work throughout Europe. It examines: (1) the importance of sovereignty; (2) the role of the Vatican and the political nature of the papacy; (3) the threat to the monarchy and the throne of the United Kingdom; (4) the nature of biblical government; (5) the supremacy of the European courts over British acts of parliament; (6) the implications of monetary union; (7) the European propaganda machine; (8) the potential consequences for evangelical Christians of a European parliamentary directive on cults and sects."
The Castle of Lies: Why Britain Must Get Out of Europe (1996)
"This book will explode a bombshell at the heart of the debate over Britain's place in Europe. It reveals for the first time, and over a vast canvas, how in recent years Britain has been through a hidden revolution - a revolution that is already beginning to have devastating effects on almost every aspect of our lives. Today, far more than most people are aware, we are living under a wholly new system of government, run not by elected politicians but by anonymous armies of officials in Brussels, Whitehall and all over Europe. It is a system that carefully disguises its true nature behind a labyrinth of lies. Furthermore, as the authors demonstrate beyond doubt in this chilling expose, it creates havoc in whatever it touches. It is a system that is heading for disaster."
The Rotten Heart of Europe (1995/2013)
"When first published in 1995, [this book] caused outrage and delight - here was a Brussels insider, a senior EU economist, daring to talk openly about the likely pitfalls of European monetary union. Bernard Connolly lost his job at the Commission, but his book was greeted as a profound and persuasive expose of the would-be 'monetary masters of the world'. His brave act of defiance became headline news - and his book a major international bestseller. In a substantial new introduction, Connolly returns to his prophetic account of the double-talk surrounding the efforts of politicians, bankers, and bureaucrats to force Europe into a crippling monetary straitjacket. Hidden agendas are laid bare, skulduggery exposed and economic fallacies are skewered, producing a horrifying conclusion. No one who wants to understand the workings of the EU, past, present, and future can afford to miss this enthralling and deeply disturbing book."
The Trumpet Sounds for Britain (Volume I - 1980, Volume II - 1983, Volume III - 1985)
"There is abundant evidence to show that the hand of God has been on the history of this country from its very earliest beginnings, and at work on its behalf in at least five ways by: (1) constituting us an island (or group of islands); (2) giving us Christian foundations; (3) preserving those Christian foundations whenever they have been in danger of being lost or destroyed; (4) ensuring that our laws are based on the Bible; (5) bringing about mighty acts of deliverance. These facts are quite irrefutable, and are explored in Volume I of this trilogy. ... [the author] has watched with concern and alarm Britain's spiritual and moral situation deteriorate unarrested. He [has] warned of the very real danger of a 'takeover' by the enemy from without. He now sees this as imminent, and hence the urgent need to 'sound the trumpet' for Britain..."
Prospects of the Ten Kingdoms of the Roman Empire (3rd Edition [abridged] 1955)
"It is distressing to observe that, whilst the principles and arrangements of the nations are every year approximating more and more nearly to that specific form which the Scripture says they will assume at the time of the end, men, instead of recognising this marked verification of God's Word, continue to mistrust, if not to revile that Word, more and more..." [from the Preface to the Second Edition, December 1873] / "Apart from the more academic discussion concerning the extent of the Roman Empire, the author shows from Scripture the certainty of a coming ten-kingdom confederacy governed by the anti-Christian principles now so rapidly developing. The EEC, of which [the author] of course knew nothing, brings us much nearer the fulfilment of those things of which he treats, and fore-shadows the time of which the Scripture foretells when the ten-kingdoms shall 'agree and give their kingdom unto the Beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled'. The author shows how the insatiable thirst for commercial prosperity has been instrumental in breaking down all distinction between truth and falsehood; between light and darkness; between that which is of God and that which is of Satan; so that the nations are being given over to the strong delusions..." [from the Foreword to the Third Edition].

"Nine hundred and fifty years ago, between two hillocks at Hastings, an Anglo-Saxon king took an arrow in his eye and England surrendered her independence. That was our last - should I say most recent? - defeat on home soil. King Harold's forces fought valiantly but they had been exhausted by two earlier battles ... A shrewd and ruthless Frenchman, Guillaume of Normandy, seized power and London's Witan parliament was never heard of again. ...
"I have been contemplating poor King Harold a fair amount recently. ... As a schoolboy I visited the northern French town of Bayeux to see [the] tapestry and remember a sting of sorrow as I saw the needlework images of vanquished Anglo-Saxons. It was always the same when I read history yarns about British chieftain Caractacus fighting the Romans on his hilltop and later being paraded in Rome as a chained captive; or gallant ... Boadicea, Queen of the Iceni tribe, charging towards the Roman lines in her chariot ... In such accounts, I always rooted for the Brits. ... I always wanted the dwellers of our dank and foggy, sea-set isle to seize the day. Was it a nascent sketchwriter's innate bias or inherited love of country from my fiercely patriotic parents? Was that love wrong? Is that love wrong? I still feel that way.
"The likes of Mr Cameron and his fellow Europhiles ... presumably feel something different when they look at the Bayeux tapestry. I suppose they experience a glow of quiet satisfaction that William and his forces of European integration over came the locals. ... A deep-rooted part of me rebels against that. ... I grieve for the freedoms that were squashed. And I feel just the same when I look at an castle built by English lords to crush dissent in Scottish and Welsh territory. My sympathies lie with the invaded. ...
"Hereward the Wake [a] Lincolnshire freeman ... had his lands taken by the Normans and decided to do something about it. For a few years after 1066, Hereward and his small army operated out of the Cambridgeshire town of Ely, then an island. They were beaten only after a treacherous monk showed the Normans one of the secret paths to Ely through the Fenland marshes. ... Almost a millennium after the event, I feel a lively indignation on Hereward's behalf. What a cur that monk was to betray him. What if Hereward had continued to oppose William? Could he have combined with the still unconquered Celts and Northumbrians to drive out the 'ingengas'? Or was Norman rule as inevitable as supporters of the EU now say their governing body is inevitable? As for that treacherous monk, was he a sort of Roland Rudd of his day ... the City PR smoothie pulling strings for the Remain camp? ...
"My support for Hereward may reflect a surfeit of foolish romanticism. But it may also echo enduring truths about the importance of self-determination and of remaining true to one's ancestral heritage. For what are we if we deny the past? What is the point of being British if we are not able to say who governs us? And let there be no doubt: if we vote to stay ion the EU, we will not be able to dislodge the elite that runs Brussels. They will be impervious to our democratic disapproval. They will be as safe as William and his shaven-headed Normans were in their mighty castle keeps. ...
"The Leave campaign ... has urged voters to quit the EU for a range of reasons ... Hereward the Wake ... would have heard Vote Leave talk of how we must 'take control' and would surely have thought 'I don't really want control - I want liberty.' ...
"It would obviously be good for us to retrieve national control of trade decisions, tax matters, ... immigration policy ... But where is the optimism in Leave's campaign? Where is the appeal to something more positive, more human, more ardent? The hearts of Hereeward the Wake and his 'green men' would have burned for something greater; something more essential. You could call it self-determination or independence but it is basically the right to plant your feet on the clifftops of Kent, raise your eyes to the cloud-scudding sky, and relish your ancient liberty as a free-born Briton. ...
"I think of my grandfathers. One was wounded three times on the Western Front in World War I. The other landed in Normandy - Normandy! - just before D-Day to clear the beaches of mines. They fought for king and country, yes, but they fought most of all for an idea: freedom. The days of ancestral sword and scramasax may have passed but that powerful notion of liberty, the spirit of British dissent which flared so wonderfully in the East Anglian fens 950 years ago, must never be allowed to die. Without it, we would be an island without pride, an island shorn of soul"

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

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