Dave asked for virtually nothing and didn’t even get that!

(Weekend blog)

The great negotiator?

It’s difficult to know whether to laugh or cry. Britain had an incredibly strong negotiating position with the useless, corrupt, undemocratic, collapsing EU. If we left, this would be catastrophic for the EU for two main reasons:

Firstly financially: Britain is the second largest contributor to EU funds:

eu net contrib by country

If we walked, the EU would have to fire thousands of useless over-paid, over-pensioned parasitic bureaucrats and make massive cuts in all its subsidies to agriculture, fishing, industry, education and much else. Also EU fisherman would lose the rights to fish in UK waters which would cause massive bankruptcies in the fishing industries of several EU countries. In fact, if we walked, the whole EU would risk going bankrupt.

Secondly – risk of others following: If Britain left and was seen to be more successful outside the EU than in, then voters in other countries would start demanding their rulers also look at getting out from under the stifling control of the self-serving, venal and incompetent Brussels elites. This is probably an even greater risk to the Europhiliac elites than losing Britain’s money. If other countries walked, their great EU dream of a EUSSR run by them and benefiting only them would be destroyed.

With a negotiating hand like that, Cameron could have demanded radical change to both the EU and in Britain’s relationship with the EU. So, what did Cameron do? He asked for virtually nothing. No right for Britain to control its own borders. No right for us to deport people who are a danger to our country. No right for Britain to make its own laws. No reduction in the EU’s bloated budget. No crackdown on the widespread endemic corruption and waste in EU spending.

What did Dave ask for? Just a small reduction in in-work benefits for EU migrants – and he didn’t even get that. If he wanted to do this, he would first have to ask permission from the rotten gravy train that is the EU parliament. As most countries in the EU are shipping their unemployed off to Britain, the EU parliament would block this with glee, overjoyed at the opportunity to punish Britain for daring to question the EUSSR project.

Moreover, PR-man Dave said in advance that whatever the EU gave him, he would accept and campaign for Britain to remain in the EU. That’s not the best way to start a supposed ‘negotiation’. How they must have laughed in Europe’s capitals as they humiliated Britain and its useless leader.

Cameron’s Plan B

But Cameron has a Plan B. He was hoping he could use Plan A to keep us in the EU – big up his ‘negotiating success’ by telling us how great it was for Britain. But now everyone (except the Europhiliac BBC, Channel 4 and Financial Times) can see that Cameron has come back with nothing, he’s going to revert to Plan B – try to scare voters into wanting to stay in the EU. So we’ll hear all the lies that were trotted out when the elites wanted us to join the Euro – millions of jobs will be lost, Britain won’t be able to trade with EU countries, Britain will lose power and influence etc etc. Lies, lies and more lies.

So, please ignore the torrent of lies that we’ll be subjected to by the elites over the next few months. The EU is a disaster. It is especially a disaster for a country like Britain with its long history of democracy and international trade.

We have to leave. And hopefully our departure will cause the whole rotten EU project to collapse and free other countries from the catastrophe of German domination.

Vote leave!

    this is neat and concise we save lots of money get our fishing grounds back plus agriculture land. Just by leaving the EU.Against the wishes of the enemies of our country such as the anti- English BBC.
    At the end of the movie Trainspotting all the choices come down to one CHOOSE LIFE.
    Deuteronomy 30- 19
    Choose life so that England and her descendants will live.

    ” If other countries walked, their great EU dream of a EUSSR run by them and benefiting only them would be destroyed.”
    The EU is collapsing anyway and it is only a matter of time.
    Dave doesn’t want to go down in history as the mere ‘grain of sand that started the avalanche’.

    And now it’s grown to the size of a ‘rolling stone’.
    “European Parliament president Martin Schulz says in London today: ‘Many of my colleagues say behind closed doors: ‘Don’t stop a rolling stone. If the Brits want to leave, let them leave’.”
