Here's what a Prime Minister who is not a pansy would say:

"I have a great belief in Britain, you know. We are not a nation of social workers, or clients of social workers. We are not, please God, a nation of deserving cases. We are a fierce, proud nation, and we are still, God willing, a nation to be reckoned with!"

Can I bet in Pounds Sterling, or Euros, or both?

Anonymous Quartermaster February 27, 2016 7:29 PM  

I remember when I lived in Germany in the late 60s. Britain wanted into the common market, and France did her best to keep Britain out. I think the fact that France wanted to keep Britain out should have been dispositive that it was a bad idea to get in to begin with.

Back then, Britain seemed like an island of sanity compared to much of western Europe. I several times wished my father could have gotten orders to Lakenheath instead of Ramstein.

A free Britain would be a shining example to all of Europe. It would give hope to the smaller states that the EU can be defied and show people all over the world that it's not just a one way street to global overlords.

Britain exiting the EU and Trump entering the White House would make for a most excellent 2016.

There's something entirely irrational about the argument. Like the bridge gets burnt and the chasm will never again be crossable. If five years from now there emerges good reasons to reintegrate the process will be no different to Turkey trying to join now; except that Britain might be, by then a Fundamentalist Salafi state applicant and Turkey a smoldering crater.

Cameron is scum. He is owned by people who regard mass war as a necessary part of the human game, like they are gods. They aren't. Their throats are as slittable as the scum they feel contempt for. Cackling Clinton thinks she is safe, see her going like Gaddhafi did the stupid arrogant cunt.

Get out now! Muslims will grow and outvote us or worse. Ive scared my mother into voting out, rape or the death of your beautiful young grandchildren has a way of doing that.

The problem is, and this is the genius of the Jew/Gamma winner, is that unless somebody hits a delta, or points at him, or fists at him, or makes it clear that he don't want to hurt him they often see no evil.

Things can change, hierarchies exist but they are not eternal, these people have to come crashing down. I don't no what to do, but I have felt for awhile that the hate in me will have its moment. I am ready to die to stop these fucking scum having their way.

Britain is gone; overrun by 3rd worlders, unsustainable trade and current account deficits. If not for foreign creditors (FED? BOJ?)/FX market, the UK would be forked. Exchanging sterling for yellow may not be a bad idea.

Given that Britain has its own currency, it is in a much better financial position than the European nations which gave up their own currencies, and thus their sovereignty, for the Euro.

Anonymous Steveo February 27, 2016 8:15 PM  

Dr. EU, do you really expect them to pay?

No, Mr. Powers. I expect them to die.

Go Brexit!

"slaughter house workers telling the cattle how scary life is outside those pens."

Europe are the cattle, who are the slaughter house workers? The Muslims are the SH workers? and the US jews own all the slaughterhouses?

Muslims are by nature looking to expand?

We are sitting ducks here. Read some of Matthew Bracken, just thought I cant do anything that matters. If something kicked off our gutted military would react how quick? Its horrible thinking about it. We are clueless and our leaders don't care. We've outsourced safety to people that might not be there.

Said this sort of stuff to my mother, "but somebody amongst them must know about all this, won't they do something". Its the the Euro feeling that the govt or an outside agency will save or protect you, right now its maybe the opposite.

Washington DC will put the screws to the British government just like they put the screws to the Greek government, and it will fold. If any of these European countries ever have any chance of breaking free they have to somehow rid themselves of all American influence before they shed the EU. Good luck with that.

And they need to disband NATO.

But the US isn't going to let any of that happen.

Blogger pyrrhus February 27, 2016 11:23 PM  

NATO has no reason to exist, except empire building by the US military and military contractors...so it keeps expanding.

I see the remain camp winning, but only after using rediculous scare tactics pushed through a leftist media lead by a BBC. A BBC which I might add, receives millions of €s from the EU each year.

The only chink of light at the end of the tunnel, is that once the puplic realise they've been duped once again, there might be a tremendous backlash in favour of UKIP at the next general election, as happened to the SNP after they lost their referendum.

Yes... leaving the American-run NATO and kicking out all American forces from the isles is a must.

Blogger Phat Repat February 28, 2016 11:00 AM  

Here's a good article from The Economist: "The Real Danger of Brexit"

To some Eurosceptics these hardships would be worth it if they meant reclaiming sovereignty from Europe, whose bureaucrats and judges interfere with everything from bankers’ bonuses to working-time limits. Yet the gain would be partly illusory. In a globalised world, power is necessarily pooled and traded: Britain gives up sovereignty in exchange for clout through its memberships of NATO, the IMF and countless other power-sharing, rule-setting institutions. Signing up to treaties on trade, nuclear power or the environment involves submitting to regulations set jointly with foreigners, in return for greater gains. Britain outside the EU would be on the sidelines: notionally independent from, but in fact still constrained by, rules it would have no role in formulating. It would be a purer but rather powerless sort of sovereignty.

Blogger Phat Repat February 28, 2016 11:17 AM  

And by no means am I arguing in favor of the EU or any other foreign entity. We, the US, are well down the path of having lost our own sovereignty through treaties and foreign entanglements; the very ones our Forefathers warned us against.

When the article is published by The Economist, then you have a bloody guarantee that it is NOT a good article!

The article is wrong. There is a world of difference to be in an inter-governmental organisation like NATO or the IMF and to be in a supra-national organisation like the EU.

Secondly, Britain would have more influence outside the EU; not less influence!

Anonymous Philipp February 28, 2016 12:26 PM  

What most people do not know is that 80-90% of all rules concerning the EU's single market do not come from the EU but from global trade bodies like the UNECE, Codex Alimentarius, WTO, ILO, IMO, UNEP and a whole host of bodies few have ever heard of, where the EU negotiates on its members.

An independent Britain could represent itself at these trade bodies and would have more influence when these trade regulations are drafted.

If Britain were to leave the EU and rejoined the European Free Trade Asscociation (EFTA), it would remain in the European Economic Area and thus enjoy a veto (official a "right of reservation") over new EU legislation. EU members do not have a veto. Thus again a Britain outside the EU would have more power and influence.

Blogger Phat Repat February 28, 2016 5:18 PM

While I don't necessarily agree with everything in The Economist, I don't believe they're far off the mark in this case.

I would also take issue with NATO and IMF being inter-governmental as both are controlled/directed by the US. And both are likely on their way out. Just look at how Greece (EU) refused to deal with the IMF during the Grexit debacle. And what about NATO support for Turkey? Denied. For better or worse, transition is occurring, though it appears glacial at times. Will we like the next system? Probably not, or so I've heard.
