BoREXIT is go

The Mayor of London declares his support for reclaiming British sovereignty:
Boris Johnson tonight declared he will campaign for Britain to leave the EU because it would save money and regain control for the British Parliament.

The Mayor of London electrified the EU referendum campaign by ending months of speculation and dismissing David Cameron's EU deal as insignificant, saying he could not turn down this 'once in a lifetime' chance to quit the EU.

And he told the Prime Minister he was making the announcement by text just nine minutes before he appeared on live TV outside his north London home.

Mr Cameron was said to be 'absolutely furious' with the Mayor of London's decision and earlier today he made a last ditch attempt to persuade him to join the In campaign by warning against 'linking arms with Nigel Farage and George Galloway'.
Good on him. Johnson not only just ensured that he will become the next Prime Minister of Great Britain, he just significantly increased the probability that the title will actually mean something.

If you are British, vote BREXIT. Vote leave. Vote out. Escape the Fourth Reich while you can.

I think Boris, by going so rightly against the establishment globalists in Britain, has probably ensured himself as a future Prime Minister. Boris is kind of the anti-McCain....

Yes, I will have to discover whether, though formally resident in Italy, I still have a vote.

In a sense, Boris is the British Donald. We will see what pull he has among the voters.

Yes, please. NZ can and will provide you all the lamb, butter, wine, cheese and Despair (when we trounce you at rugby) that you need.

Australians can provide all the gold, beef, proving grounds for aerospace, and despair when they trounce you at cricket.

The Canadians can provide oil, more gold, cars (they have to learn to be civilized and build cars with Right hand drive, and how to spell correctly)
and cute quebeciose.

You all just need to dump your social welfare system and start building decent ships and guns. (The Type 22 frigate, and the current British assault rifle will not suffice).

Britain was prosperous when it used the empire instead of Europe.

This is great news, not just because BoJo is a household name in Britain, but also because beneath his carefully sculpted bumbling toff persona he's one of the sharpest and most self-serving politicians we have.

So if Boris is willing to stake his career on the success of the Out campaign, that is a poweful endorsement indeed.

Boris is indeed the British version of McCain, with all the same tricks up his sleeves too. He is an expert on knowing which side his political bread is buttered on, and it sounds like he is doing a better job of listening to his constituents than Parliament is too.

He could indeed be looking very good for future PM if he shows he can take care of business, instead of making a big show of just being a paper shuffler.

Are there enough whites left in London to re elect him mayor, or are the minorities too stupid to know this wont be good for them?

UK was never a good fit for the EU (yes, neither are the rest, but...).
Between it's currency, it's weights and measures (still mostly pounds/inches/Fahrenheit) it's ''We're British, not European!'' culture, and it's reluctance to join in when the Euro was introduced, meant the UK wasn't going to embrace the EU.
I'm aware that several other countries had to be dragged in kicking and screaming also.
The main point is Boris is seeing the handwriting on the wall: ''Why finish joining and cause all that disruption when the EU could well fall apart soon?''

Weka - We have Type 23 frigates now, but there are only 8 planned Type 26 replacements, which would barely be enough ships to secure a seaside pier.

Once we get out of the EU, we need to hang the politicians who've been running down the navy. Pour encourager les autres. Then scrap foreign aid and put the money into building new hulls.

At least we've got an aircraft carrier now, albeit with no operational fixed wing aircraft to fly from it until the underwhelming and crazily expensive F-35B comes into service.

The L85A2 is a pretty decent weapon now. With ongoing upgrades and maintenance it'll do for a good few years yet. When it's eventually replaced, we should go for a proven off-the-shelf design rather than waste money on another British assault rifle that nobody outside the UK wants to buy. The SCAR-L or HK416 would do the job nicely.

Boris is just a shill for CoL. I guess the exceptions to the law they arranged for themselves in Camerons deal weren't enough.

Blogger Doom February 21, 2016 4:24 PM  

Wow. That really surprises me. I wonder who said he could say this *cough* (next monarch) *cough*, and why. Is the crown up against it, and not willing to lose it all? Or is there something else going on? Cool. If it works. Yeah, no, I don't think the queen would endorse it. I swear though, I hear the cheer, the queen is dead, long live the ....! The eldest of the three, I do believe. I'm also thinking, ding dong the witch is dead. It's coming.

YIH - all shops sell in kilos and so on now. People have gone to jail for selling in pounds and ounces.

If they tried to change motorway signs to kilometres instead of miles I reckon there'd be a revolution though. Or a lot of lost drivers at least.

We were never a good fit for the EU. For one thing, we're not European in the sense that the French and Germans and whatnot are. We like Continentals, for the most part, but they're foreigners. They think differently.

Britain joined the Common Market, as it was then called, because our political elites thought it would replace the Empire as a means for allowing them to preen on the world stage. And because the American government encouraged them to.

We should've heeded de Gaulle, who wisely tried to keep us out.

Wasn't there an uproar last week over Obummer speaking at a British institution pushing the EU. The British wanted him to mind his own business.

Anonymous McOxford February 21, 2016 4:39 PM  

Johnson knows he won't hold another term as mayor and there'll be no cabinet positions for him under Cameron who loathes him. But if the out campaign wins he can be part of the inevitable vote of no confidence Cameron will face with all the potential for gain that entails. The mans a snake, but its a daring and ambitious move and I admire that, plus maybe he knows something ...

OT Hey John C Wright- its Bender Kora's last episode again this time with mudsharking.

Disney Channel show Gravity Falls wrapped its final episode recently and confirmed what many fans had long suspected and hoped for: that two of the characters on the popular cartoon series, Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durand, are gay and in love...

Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch has previously spoken about including an LGBT character in the series. In a Q&A on Reddit, Hirsch said he wanted to, but was afraid he wouldn’t be allowed.

“I would love to but I doubt they’d ever let me do it in kids T.V. But man I would if I could,” Hirsch says

David Cameron is an ersatz conservative. The European Union is a un-conservative project.
For example, conservative political thinkers stress the importance of de-centralizing political decision making. Conservative thinkers also point out the importance of local knowledge, which planners fail to take into account. The European Union runs counter to these views of conservative philosophy.

Cataline - George is hoping we join the Arab League.

Don't misunderestimate him though. He's a nutter, but a very effective campaigner and public speaker.

Remember he made fools out of the US senators who thought they'd skin him alive on TV?

Well if Galloway is backing it, it has wide-spectrum support, I can say that for it.

Which he appears to be doing.

And yes he is still the leader of the Respect Party. For those that aren't read up on it. Respect is a watermelon party; Green on the outside, Red on the inside.

You might remember Galloway from about ten years ago when he came to US to testify at a Senate hearing and played Slap the Stupid Senator. It was most amusing.

I was under the impression that Boris Johnson was a big old lefty. Was I mistaken? If not, why does he want to exit the EU. Obviously, it would be better for Britain to do so, but that doesn't seem to be a consideration for the left or the right.

Anonymous Steve February 21, 2016 5:17 PM  

Cataline - sorry buddy.

Ron - BoJo is a sort of squishy wet conservative. Maybe not as wet as Cameron, but not exactly Mrs Thatcher in trousers either.

People want to leave the EU for different reasons. The left traditionally hated the EU, seeing it as a threat to British jobs, British trade unions, and the Soviet Union they secretly hoped we'd join.

Boris doubtless has self-serving reasons in mind. He's not on the EU gravy train and unlikely to be made a Commissioner while Cameron is in power.

But he's also a canny political wind-sniffer who avoids losing more often than not. This bodes well for the FU EU campaign.

The ANZAC frigates are OK, the Aussies have some decent subs, and NZ needs to hang Helen Clarke for getting rid of our strike aircraft. Of course, she's now in the UN, but they are also the enemy.
