Thank You Herr Juncker!


Recommended Posts

...your "State of the Union" (now where have we heard that one before?) speech has gone down amazingly well in the UK.  It confirms everything the Leave campaign said about where the EU was surely headed.  I've now lost count of the number of if-only-we-had-known newspaper articles, and forum posts from people who voted Remain.  You've provided them with a admirable rationalisation for their change of mind.

There never was a "Remain" status quo to vote for, as it was always your way or no way!  I suspect ever-increasing numbers of our continental cousins will be telling you "no way!" from now on.  The reactions to TM's speech in Florence on 22nd September are going to be... er.. interesting!

Not at all what we voted for, and approaching a complete sellout.  In fact she has compounded earlier mistakes and allowed room for even more subterfuge.  Why on earth should British taxpayers shore up the anti-democratic EU for several more years?  Further proof - if any were needed - that our country is run for the benefit of London-based international bankers and not British citizens.

A prominent Telegraph reader writes:-


SIR – Theresa May’s announcement that the Government is  prepared to stay in the EU until 2021  is a betrayal on a par with Chamberlain’s sell-out to Hitler and a betrayal of the “will of the people”, who in 2016 voted to get out of the EU and back into the world.

Britain is stuck for at least four years with free movement, the customs union, the single market and control by an unelected body in Brussels.

The British people voted to leave the EU, not to continue paying £10 billion a year, with a trade deficit of £60 billion a year. Mrs May should resign for her act of treachery. The British people will never forgive her.

Whilst I agree with you 100% here Arthur aren't you a latecomer to this democracy thing?

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.

      Martin who?  Well the surname is Selmayr, and he's a 47-year-old German lawyer known as a "monster eurocrat", and the "Rasputin of Brussels".
      Nothing to do with me you say...  well, not quite.  By some mysterious process he just became "Secretary General of the European Commission".  Still nothing to do with me you say, as he's not even in the European Parliament.  You'd be right there, as he's now the guy that heads the junta that hands down law for the European Parliament to rubber stamp - law which our great and good have "wisely" made transcendent to English law.  Understand why he's got a smirk on his face, and old Juncks is looking like... well... am I going to get away with this?
      Why was this professional lawyer appointed by the Brussels mafia?  Well... "Mr Selmayr, who was previously Mr Juncker's chief of staff, is a vocal supporter of European federalism and one of the EU's most vehement opponents of Brexit."
      Getting the plot now?

      We must leave the EU completely in March 2019 - No transition period, No delay
      Elizabeth Watson's petition is doing amazingly well: 27,147 signatures now and about 5000 up on when I signed it last night.  Actually... pretty disgusting that we should even need to petition so very long after the referendum. Vested interest walks the corridors of power in our country, and we've a long way to go to "drain the swamp".
