Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 


The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name! 


Fortunately Christopher Booker Seems To Have Recovered From His Recent Senior Moment, when he seemed willing to put our Referendum in jeopardy espousing we should vote for the Ukip Cult and went all gooey over that other enemy within Dan Hannan!

Fortunately Christopher Booker Seems To Have Recovered From His Recent Senior Moment, when he seemed willing to put our Referendum in jeopardy espousing we should vote for the Ukip Cult and went all gooey over that other enemy within Dan Hannan!

One has to worry at such a lapse of good sense by someone who was so clearly up to speed on EU matters in the past and co-authored the definitive book on The EU ‘The Great Deception’ there was a moment when one wondered just how easily Christopher Booker had been deceived by the lies and showmanship of Nigel Farage and his lack of any vestige of a responsible workable EU eXit and survival strategy for Britain, despite 22 years of claiming to wish to Leave_The_EU.

Ever the entertainer and showy salesman I guess Nigel Farage’s style and the bully boy tactics of the pond life that are his claque leading the Ukip Cult forward as clearly some are beguilled by it, it would seem Booker included! Little wonder that the electorate, having voted 2 to one to keep First Past The Post (FPTP), the Farage cult appreciating that with approaching 4 Million votes they have reached their zenith and without a change in electoral methods they will never break through the glass ceiling their odious behaviour has created.

As for the Dan Hannan approach we must be minded that all too often we are cautioned of the enemy within, and it is of course our own elected servants who have so unfailingly betrayed us for their own greater glory and a broader stage on which they can strut their vanity and nurture their expenses – it is these very politicians who have landed us as a vassal region in the supra national EU Empirate with its over blown, over paid and unelected armies of bureaucrats.

All too often such as Dan Hannan in persuit of their incomes and their cosy relationships have acted as Judas Goats leading us like lambs to the slaughter!

It is clear that neither Nigel Farage nor Dan Hannan have much of a clue as to how the EU functions having both failed to have any kind of responsible workable or plausible EU eXit and survival strategy and seem not to even understand Article 50 let alone the fast track version in Article 48!

Thaty is of course to give Dan Hannan & Nigel Farage the benefit of the doubt that they do not understand the EU nor either Article 48 or 50, there is a more sinister consideration and that is that they do understand and are duplicitously acting as Judas Goats – let us hope it is stupidity rather than outright dishonesty.

Either way it is increasingly clear that if such individuals are associated with the EU Referendum or if it falls under the control of the crano rectally retentive and self serving egos of the Westminster Bubble and their crassly ill informed media luvvies we can count on the EUroSceptic cause being lost and our status as a vassal of this failing behemoth being locked in until it finalluy collapses into pennuary and the wars of disassociation as member states squabble and then fight to retain the assets they can grab.

That said it is a relief to see Christopher Booker would seem to have overcome his senior moment and is back on track – though I readily understand the concept of mistakes made in desperation, the ‘old man in a hurry’ syndrome!

Booker: united to keep us in the EU

Sunday 24 May 2015  

000a Booker-024.jpg

In this week’s column, Booker picks up on CBI president Mike Rake, and this thoroughly disreputable bank, Barclays, the very firm of which Rake is deputy chairman. It is, is facing a record-breaking fine of £1.5 billion for its fiddling of exchange rates, yet Rake feels he is entitled to tell us how we should be governed.

Booker notes that the CBI and the BBC have been shamelessly in cahoots over their support for Britain’s membership of the EU ever since the days when they were propagandising together for Britain to join the euro.

Almost daily they told us how, unless we joined the single currency, we were doomed. Foreign firms would pull out of Britain en masse. And of course they are both playing exactly the same game today, as David Cameron launches his campaign to negotiate for Britain a “new relationship” with the EU.

The one thing the Europhiles are absolutely desperate to keep out of the debate is the possibility that, even if we did leave the EU, we could continue trading with the single market just as we do now by remaining within the European Economic Area (as was superbly illustrated by the way Jim Naughtie impatiently tried to stop Owen Paterson making precisely this point yesterday morning).

The only argument we ever hear is that, if we left the EU, our trade with Europe would collapse: much as we shall hear from Mr Cameron when he returns from his “negotiations” with no more than a few little fig-leaves, to persuade us all to vote “yes” for staying in.

One considerable danger, however, is that the dressing-up of these “fig-leaves” will be so intense that a gullible media will fall for it, and present the Cameron deal as if it was something substantial, just like the treaty that he supposedly vetoed.

But the chief reason why this shabbily deceitful argument is being allowed to dominate the debate, says Booker, is the Eurosceptics’ inability to unite in explaining that there is only one possible route whereby the EU can be made to give Britain that “new relationship” Mr Cameron talks of.

Certainly, the likes of Rake are making a big thing about us not having a “credible alternative future to EU membership”, only to have Ruth Lea pop up with her utterly mad idea that the post-exit UK could rely on WTO rules, by which – she says – many countries, “including China, very successfully conduct much of their trade”.

I wouldn’t mind so much if this arrogant woman took the time out to keep herself informed but, as we pointed out, China has a substantial number of agreements with the EU, which transcend WTO rules and are vital for the conduct of trade. Not least is the raft of Mutual Recognition Agreements on conformity assessment, without which the flow of goods would be seriously hampered.

Fortunately – for the moment – many of the “inners” seem as ignorant as to the realities of international trade as is Ruth Lea, but if any of them had to wit to call her out, Mike Rake’s claim about the absence of a “credible alternative future to EU membership” would certainly stand if all we had to rely on was this woman’s dogma.

For us, though, this is a real problem, where our supposed allies are all over the place, doing – as Autonomous Mind asserts, more harm than good. Nevertheless, Booker wants Cameron to do the one thing he says he cannot agree to: by using Article 50 of the treaty to say that we wish to join Norway and others outside the EU, but still in the Single Market.

Booker also asserts that his bluff is finally being called, although that is not always the case. What we are getting is the likes of Prof Mark Taylor, of Warwick University Business School – who was on the Today programme yesterday, just before Owen Paterson. He told us: “We would be worse off outside the EU because we wouldn’t have access to the Single Market”.

This, bluntly, is an outright lie, but then Taylor probably feels he has to protect his income stream. In 2013, Warwick University took €7,462,052 in EU funding (and a share in a further €54,330,432-worth of projects, amounting to €8,030,622). Thus, in that one year (the latest figures available), their coffers were swollen by over €15 million from the EU.

However, money-grubbing euroids are only part of the problem. With Ruth Lea and many others who regard themselves as the Eurosceptic “aristocracy”, strutting their stuff, we stand at risk of remaining firmly shackled to all the superstructure of this failing political project.

As we point out elsewhere, those who are serious about winning this referendum are having to fight on three fronts. We have to deal with the underhanded lies of the pro-EU camp and also the brain-capsizing ineptitude of the Ukip. But there is also the selfish, self-absorbed right-wing think tank “aristocracy” who are neither use nor ornament.

We can only win if the anti-EU movement ups its game and starts doing its homework. But there is also the danger of the campaign being hijacked by Westminster careerist campaigners who get paid either way. Against that, we will have our “credible alternative future to EU membership”, but it is pointless doing all that work if it is lost in the noise created by our own side.
