@GuyVerhofstadt - How Dare You!

Guy Verhofstadt said today in the European Parliament "What makes it so hard for me...is the way it succeeded. The absolutely negative campaign. Mr Farage's posters showing refugees like in Nazi propaganda, which he copied at that moment. I never thought it was possible that somebody in this house should do a thing like that."

How dare you suggest that the British people were persuaded by what you call Nazi propaganda. You are free today to make such comments because British men and women lay down their lives for you. Almost 1.5 million British citizens died in World Wars 1 and 2. We didn't fight in England, our parents and grandparents fought in Europe to free Europeans. We could very easily have stood by and done nothing but we stood up for what we believed was right and just against evil. Even in WW2 when no one else came to Europe's aid we stood alone against the Nazis for years until finally the Americans came in to help. There would be no EU now without our intervention then.

I voted to leave the European Union because I and many others in the UK are tired of the corruption and money laundering that's going on in Europe, supported by the very organisation you're defending. I lived in Eastern Europe between 2004 and 2010 and saw the thieving first hand, seeing huge EU grants to fund projects that were completed at a tenth of the original cost with the remainder going in to various pockets along the way. Banks being allowed under their so called 'passport', to set up branches anywhere in the EU. I saw the Royal Bank of Scotland building lots of branches in Bucharest in 2008 after Romania joined the EU in 2007. They then lent millions in unsecured loans and then surprise, surprise, got caught out. You remember the Banks financial crash and the subsequent recession I suppose.

Our politicians didn't expect this result, you didn't expect this result, well tough, we've given the EU a chance to put its house in order whether you like it or not. You can now move to a full federal Europe, one state, one currency and with no interference from us, except if you sink into a war, when no doubt we will try to save your sorry arses yet again.

Stop your ranting and raving and start acting in a responsible manner. We made a democratic vote. Respect it!

Brexit - Both Campaigns Caught With Their Trousers Down!

It has become clear to me that just a few days after the historic referendum result where the UK voted to Leave the EU, both campaign sides were really caught with their trousers down. Neither side really expected us to vote to leave. Even Farage said just a few hours before the result that his 'pals' in the city money markets had done an extensive survey which gave the Remain camp the win with a comfortable margin. The bookmakers got it wrong, the money markets got it wrong, the vast majority of the polls got it wrong.

Even Boris was caught out. As the celebrity front to the lacklustre leave campaign, it seemed obvious to me that Cameron must have offered him a Cabinet post if he led the Leave campaign and kept it half hearted, so the stupid public would be so afraid by the Remain's scaremongering they would vote accordingly. Whose stupid now? I'm sure both sides behind closed doors on Friday morning screamed "Oh shit!!!! what do we do now?"

Now that we've voted to Leave, both sides are running around like headless chickens because they haven't got a clue what to do next. Neither side had any sort of strategy planned for such a result, such was their arrogance that we would vote the way they expected us to.

Expect to see in the coming months (although in reality you won't actually 'see it') a deal cobbled together that in effect will mean we will have exactly the same relationship with the EU i.e. full access to the single market, visa free movement for all EU citizens etc. etc. We will also pay in exactly the same amount as we do now, the only difference will be that we won't have any voting rights. I can hear the civil servants now to the EU "look we're really sorry this has happened. We really didn't see this coming. Please can we have exactly the same relationship as before, with no voting rights and don't tell anyone.... ssshhhhhh. You can say you've punished us and we'll stand in the naughty corner for a few months.

What both sides forgot is that through hundreds of years of British history we have never liked being told what to do and we very rarely take the easy route that our European cousins mostly favour.

Why Isn't The EU Pleased ?

Apparently the English and Welsh still have some backbone left as we voted to leave the EU on Thursday. I was wrong in thinking that the voters would be swayed by the fear of fire, famine, and pestilence that was put out by the Remain campaign. But why isn't the EU pleased with our decision? I and others like me who voted Leave have just removed the most major obstacle the EU had, the UK. We were always half in and half out of the EU. We didn't want the Euro, the Schengen Zone or the Exchange Rate Mechanism plus we argued and held back the EU on so many other issues. Now they are free to forge ahead with greater union into a Federal Super State that was their intention all along. It's clear therefore that it was our money that was the reason they tolerated us for so long.

Scotland and Northern Ireland also showed their backbone in wanting independence to choose their own destiny which is why we should give them referendums of their own to leave the UK if they wish and forge their own path unshackled from Westminster.
