Remainer MP THREATENS to Tell POLICE if Public Write to Her

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit by

Remain-supporting Tory MP Antoinette Sandbach has threatened to report non-constituents who email her to the police.

She has set up an email auto-response saying: “For the avoidance of doubt any further contact from non constituents, who have received this bounceback and are therefore aware that I can not deal with their query may be classed as harrasment may be reported to the police and other relevant authorities including the House of Commons authorities and the Member of Parliament for the non constituent.”

This comes shortly after Linda Banahan, 64, wrote to Antoinette Sandbach’s local Conservative association accusing her of treachery after she backed rebel amendments in the Commons over Brexit.

In the email, which she copied to Ms Sandbach, she warned that she could no longer vote for her because of her lack of loyalty to the party.

But Mrs Banahan, who volunteers on the chaplaincy team at a local hospital, said she was left suffering from anxiety and high blood pressure after Ms Sandbach sent a ‘heavy-handed’ response warning that she had passed the message to police.

Mrs Banahan accused Ms Sandbach of ‘seeking to shut down freedom of speech by reporting emails she does not like to the police’.

The text of the ‘abusive’ email is as folows: “Her disloyalty and untrustworthiness has destroyed any chance of my ever supporting the Eddisbury Conservatives whilst she remains in post.

“In fact she has ensured I will do everything I can to make her treachery known. I will work hard to ensure her lack of loyalty to her party, Prime Minister, Government and voters is as widely known as possible to make sure people wishing to vote Conservative know she cannot be trusted.

“I hope the Eddisbury Conservatives will seriously consider deselecting her for such a selfish and self-centred betrayal of the party and country.”

Ms Sandbach replied: “Your email address has been added to my blocked email as there is a strict policy against abusive emails operated by this office and your email has also been reported to the police. In future if you wish to contact me you will have to do so in writing.” Mrs Banahan has now said she lives in fear of a knock on her door from the police.

This is a shocking overreaction from someone who should be prepared to take such mild criticism as part of their job.

If she fails to support her party, then it is only reasonable that someone who voted for her on the assumption that she would follow the party manifesto on which she stood should let her know of their disappointment and disillusionment.

How can this constituent’s message be deemed abusive? Is she trying to bully Brexiteers into silence? Is the call by the plebs for democracy too stressful for her to face?

EU Copyright Reform Proposals will harm freedom of expression online

in Brexit/Tech by

The EU is proposing to make changes to online copyright laws. Three of the articles within the proposal, however, have raised serious concerns in regards to how they would change online behaviours, specifically in terms of uploading and sharing media.

These proposals to reform EU copyright were presented by Günther Oettinger shortly before leaving his post as Digital Commissioner. The previews of news articles that appear on Facebook will be deemed a copyright violation. No one will be allowed to share preview links to a news site without direct permission of the publisher.

Article 3 would create a copyright exception when used for Text and Data Mining research methods for research institutions and only for the purpose of scientific research. However, this has drawn significant criticism as it will prevent independent researchers, journalists and companies from using the technique for products and services, placing more limitations on startups and other organisations existing outside of the scope of “scientific research.”

Even more concerningly, Article 11 would require extra copyrights for news or media outlets, requiring anyone who would like to link to a news site to first get a licence from the publisher. This has been condemned by critics as a “link tax”. The proposed law gives media giants the power to charge fees for sharing links, by copyrighting tiny preview snippets.

This link tax is a broken idea that will harm access to news and information.

Article 13 requires that internet platforms that rely on hosting large amounts of user-uploaded data must monitor that content. Additionally, they must moderate the content to identify copyright infringement. The proposal could limit freedom of expression and harm independent creators.

Upload monitoring software cannot tell infringement apart from legal uses like parody. Filters also frequently malfunction. As a result, legal content will be taken down.

Filters like these always end up blocking legitimate legal content, and therefore will lead to masses of lost creativity. Links routinely include snippets, so restricting snippets restricts linking.

Julia Reda, Pirate Party Germany MEP, states in her article ’10 everyday things on the web the EU commission wants to make illegal: Oettinger’s legacy’:

“These proposals are pandering to the demands of some news publishers to charge search engines and social networks for sending traffic their way, as well as the music industry’s wish to be propped up in its negotiations with YouTube.”

“These proposals will cause major collateral damage – making many everyday habits on the web and many services you regularly use downright illegal, subject to fees or, at the very least, mired in legal uncertainty.”

An open letter signed by over 80 signatories states that “[The Copyright Directive is] on the verge of causing irreparable damage to our fundamental rights and freedoms, our economy and competitiveness, our education and research, our innovation and competition, our creativity and our culture.”

In short, these requirements place a huge burden on internet companies and discourages investment in user-generated content startups, preventing competition to the dominant US platforms from arising, effectively locking in YouTube’s dominance.

German MEP THREATENS that the EU will control Italy’s finances

in Brexit/World News by

Earlier this week, Italy’s two anti-EU populist parties tried to form a coalition government but were blocked from power by the country’s President Sergio Mattarella, because he rejected their choice of a deeply Eurosceptic finance minister.

Then on Wednesday, Five Star Movement leader Luigi Di Maio attempted to resurrect the populist coalition by offering to withdraw Eurosceptic Paolo Savona as his choice for finance minister.

Now a German MEP has raised the prospect of the EU taking control of Italy’s finances if the Northern League and Five Star Movement do manage to form a government in future. Markus Ferber said the EU Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund could ‘march into Rome’ in echoes of the Greek crisis.

There may well be a new general election later this year in order to break the deadlock.

“The upcoming elections will not be political, but instead a real and true referendum … between who wants Italy to be a free country and who wants it to be servile and enslaved,” League leader Matteo Salvini said on Monday.

“Today Italy is not free; it is occupied financially by Germans, French and eurocrats.”

On Tuesday, European Budget Commissioner Gunther Oettinger said he hoped Italy’s poor economic situation would keep populist parties out of government.

“I can only hope that this will play a role in the election campaign… sending a signal to voters not to hand power to populists on the right and left,” he told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

So, every time a country disagrees with Brussels they either have to vote again (Ireland) or lose control of their finances (as in Greece, and now possibly Italy).

Brussels is telling Italy it HAS to retain half a million illegal migrants, vetoes (via its stooge Italian president) a Eurosceptic Italian government, and now threatens to take over its economy and finances. How can ANYONE think this is normal and acceptable democratic behaviour? But Remoaners in Britain apparently do! Thank goodness we are escaping from this dictatorial mess – EVEN if it takes years to do so.

Teen Raped: ANGER as Police Constable Demands Sympathy for Criminal GANG

in Anglophobia / Marxism by

Yesterday, Norfolk Chief Constable Simon Bailey wrote a ridiculous virtue-signalling article about travellers in the Eastern Daily Press.

We don’t want to jump to conclusions, but some might suggest he appears to be justifying people breaking the law when he writes:

“While I recognise illegal encampments within your communities causes concern, we then must appreciate the fact that members of the Travelling community have rights too, such as access to a private and family life and education for their children.

“With a chronic national shortage of authorised Traveller sites, which is not the responsibility of the police service, the vast majority of people are opting to live on unauthorised land despite the issues this causes for all involved.”

Then a few paragraphs later, he contradicts himself by saying “We know that only a small element of the Travelling community is connected to criminality.”

With this sort of attitude to crime, I can’t believe he’s even a police officer, let alone a chief constable!

Why should travellers get free camp sites? They can pay for a caravan pitch or rent a static caravan. Everyone else has to pay rent, after all.

The article makes a passing reference to the events in Cromer last summer, which you can read more about here.

One evening last August, a mob of about 100 travellers descended on the North Norfolk seaside town and a teenage girl waiting at a bus stop was raped, reportedly by 2 men.

Groups of travellers went into restaurants and pubs demanding food and drink and refused to pay for it, and also intimidated staff and other customers. All the locals were told to stay in and lock their doors and all the shops and pubs were closed.

Even at the time, some felt the local police tried to downplay the matter, when stating “People’s perception of disorder is one for themselves…What we need to put balance on is reports over the weekend as dramatically exaggerated as a town in lock down. In actual fact disorder of any level had calmed down dramatically by yesterday morning.”

Although the police and council refused to say who was responsible for the disorder, a statement from authorities in the wake of the drama revealed they had evicted 23 traveller caravans that had pitched up at the same time illegally.

There are many angry comments below Simon Bailey’s article, including “No Mr Bailey, if I went into a restaurant in Cromer and helped myself to a bottle of drink you would get a police constable to arrest me, however if the travellers do that as they did last year you will sit back and do nothing. Is that equal and balanced treatment? You are a disgrace to the uniform. I know a few of your officers who share the same opinion.”

Another commenter summed up the situation well by saying: “Most of us have a sense of natural justice and are happy to see people live a lifestyle of their choice so long as it does not impinge on the majority…All we ask is that the law is used fairly and not used to bully the settled community into accepting behaviour that is not accepted from anyone else.”

Will Brexit DEADLOCK Mean a SNAP Autumn General Election?

in Brexit by

Conservative MPs are reportedly preparing themselves for a snap general election over fears Theresa May will not be able to break the Brexit deadlock. Such a scenario would see a ‘no deal’ occurring or Theresa May backing down to the EU’s demands. If the Prime Minister backs down, a vote of no confidence will likely pass and a snap general election will be on the table.

Brexit negotiations reach their crunch verdict in autumn when EU leaders are due to meet and decide whether or not to sign off on the deal.

But the PM’s plans for a future partnership with the Brussels block has hit the buffers again amid a row over customs arrangements.

Some MPs are said to have spoken to their local party associations asking to be re-adopted as parliamentary candidates in preparation for an election later this year.

An un-named Tory MP told the Sunday Times: “It’s becoming clear there’s no compromise that will keep remainers such as Nicky Morgan, Anna Soubry and Dominic Grieve happy as well as the likes of myself and Jacob Rees-Mogg…

“The numbers are against us and if we face repeated defeats when the withdrawal bill returns to the Commons, the only alternative will be to kick over the table and trigger a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, which will likely lead to another general election.

“After speaking with like-minded colleagues, I have raised this with my association chairman and asked them to get on with readopting me as the candidate in my seat in anticipation that we could go to the polls as early as the autumn. I am even preparing my first leaflet drop for the summer.”

Labour MPs have also picked up on the prospect of a new election, with an unnamed MP saying: ‘I heard two separate reports from MPs who said they had heard Conservative MPs planning for an early election.’

May called a snap general election in June 2017 to try and widen her small majority in Parliament and improve her negotiation position. Instead, the Tories lost their majority and had to make a deal with the DUP to avoid a hung parliament.

Before the 2016 referendum, numerous senior politicians including the then prime minister and chancellor said that in the event of a Leave vote, the UK would leave the single market. So, MPs should respect the will of the people.

Brexit Threatened: Cabinet STUCK in Bitter Deadlock Over Customs Union

in Brexit by

The government has announced that a decision on the UK’s position on the customs union will be made next week.

Today’s announcement should be taken with a pinch of salt, however, as the government has said the decision will be made ‘next week’ three times now.

On Wednesday 2nd May the cabinet voted 6-5 in favour of a Brexit ‘maximum facilitation’ plan for the customs union, however, a final decision was delayed until the following week.

A week later, on Tuesday 8th May, the customs union was not discussed during the cabinet meeting and was again delayed until the next week. Two days later, the Prime Minister cancelled plans to discuss the customs union.

This brings us to today, where during a Cabinet sub-committee meeting, the decision was set to be announced ‘next week’.

Theresa May has reportedly rejected plans to stay in the customs union. Such a partnership would restrict the UK from making free trade deals, effectively destroying chances of a real Brexit.

However, ministers are at war over two customs proposals. The customs partnership – Mrs May’s preferred option – would see the UK collect tariffs on behalf of the EU and then pay them back. Brexiteers regard the proposal as unworkable and cumbersome – and they were joined by Sajid Javid and Gavin Williamson in criticising it at a tense ‘War Cabinet’ meeting last week.

The second option – maximum facilitation, or ‘Max Fac’, would see technology used to help ease trade with the EU for ‘trusted traders’.

But whips also fear Theresa May has no chance of getting the Brexiteers’ ‘Maximum Facilitation’ proposal through the Commons. At least a dozen Tory Remainer rebels are threatening to side with Labour in a looming vote on whether to stay in the customs union.

It is essential we are able to do our own trade deals and are governed by British law. This is what we voted for!

Think tank proposes tax raid on elderly to give millennials £10k each

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Student Politics by

A report into inter-generational fairness suggests that a £10,000 payment should be given to the young and pensioners taxed more in order to pay for it. The research and policy organisation, the Resolution Foundation, claims these radical moves are needed to better fund the NHS and maintain social cohesion.

Its chairman, Lord Willetts, the former universities minister under David Cameron, said the contract between young and old had “broken down”. Without action, young people would become “increasingly angry”, he said.

This is somewhat similar to the often-mooted idea of a universal basic income, except that it would be a one-off payment and would only be available to 25 year olds. It would be funded by a new “lifetime receipts tax” that would replace inheritance tax.

This is divide and conquer. It would be very expensive and also cause a lot of tension between the older and younger generations. Many elderly people would resent paying higher taxes to fund handouts for millennials, many of whom they perceive as spoilt snowflakes.

The proposals as stated would also lead to many anomalies – for example, a wealthy 25 year old investment banker would receive a £10,000 payment, whereas a homeless person in their 40s would not. It would also cause resentment amongst those who are just slightly older than the cut-off point.

One of the reasons given in support of the £10k payment is that house prices have risen so much that many millennials cannot afford to buy their own home. This is true – house prices now stand at an average 7.6 times the average annual salary, whereas in 1997, house prices were on average about 3.6 times workers’ annual gross full-time earnings. This means that the median price paid for a home leapt by 259% over this 20 year period, while median individual annual earnings could only manage a 68% rise.

So supposedly the issue of unaffordable homes is the fault of pensioners and not the government for allowing millions of extra people into the country and not building the infrastructure for them! Also, too many old people using the NHS even though they have paid their taxes, is not the government’s fault for mismanagement of the NHS! Pensioners do pay taxes if they earn enough, unlike rich tax avoiders like Richard Branson.

Also, if you give all 25 year olds £10k for a housing deposit, what do you expect will happen to property prices? Surely it will just inflate them even further. So the proposal won’t actually achieve anything for the people it’s supposed to benefit, whilst making things financially harder for everyone else.

Is this a case of the Remoaner Lords seeking to hammer the ‘Oldies’ they stereotypically blame for Brexit?

WhatsApp co-founder QUITS over privacy concerns dispute with owner Facebook

in Tech by

The billionaire chief executive of WhatsApp, Jan Koum, is planning to leave the company after clashing with its parent company, Facebook, over the popular messaging service’s strategy and Facebook’s attempts to use its personal data and weaken its encryption.

This means a loss of one of the strongest advocates for privacy inside Facebook.

Facebook has battled European regulators over a plan to use WhatsApp user data, including phone numbers, to develop products and target ads. The plan is suspended, but WhatsApp said last week it still wanted to move forward with it eventually.

The independence and protection of its users’ data is a core tenet of WhatsApp that Koum and his co-founder promised to preserve when they sold their tiny start-up to Facebook. It doubled down on its pledge by adding encryption in 2016.

At the time of the acquisition, Koum and Acton said Facebook had assured them that WhatsApp could remain an independent service and would not share its data with Facebook.

“Part of Facebook’s success has been to digest acquisitions, successfully monetise them, and integrate them into their advertising machine,” said Daniel Ives, chief strategy officer and head of technology research for research firm GBH Insights. But WhatsApp has been more challenging because of resistance from the founders, he said. “This was a massive culture clash.”

It remains to be seen what impact Koum’s departure will have on the privacy of WhatsApp users. Perhaps even more worryingly, will we also begin to see the sort of censorship that Facebook has been pursuing on its main website?

Project Fear got its sums WRONG by £100 BILLION, claims economist

in Brexit by

Treasury predictions during the EU referendum campaign were wrong to the tune of £100billion, according to a report which accuses former Chancellor George Osborne of overseeing a “gross miscarriage of government”.

The author, Timothy Congdon, a world-leading monetary analyst, describes Mr Osborne’s doom-laden forecasts as “preposterous”, pointing out that they were incorrect by nearly five per cent of GDP.

He said: “Instead of employment falling by hundreds of thousands, it has risen by hundreds of thousands. Instead of house prices going down, they have gone up. Instead of the public finances lurching more heavily into deficit, they have been better than at any time since the Great Recession.

“Above all, Mr Osborne’s scary rhetoric about a return of the Great Recession now looks preposterous. Despite all his supposed capability, he could not have been more wrong.”

He continued: “The grotesque misjudgment was not about something distant from his department’s area of responsibility.

“This was a subject where he had direct ministerial accountability and which was perhaps the defining public policy issue of his career.”

The report, which will be published in the May edition of Standpoint magazine, calculates the difference between the Project Fear forecast and the reality was 4.6 per cent of GDP.

Do you remember George Osborne threatening that there would be an emergency tax-raising budget if the UK voted to leave the EU? This threat, of course, never materialised. It was just an attempt by the elites to scare ordinary people, rather like these unrealistic economic forecasts.

With all of this news, it’s difficult to figure out why the House of Lords are backing us staying in the Customs Union, unless of course it’s self interest, EU pensions and so on!

House of Lords STOPS Real Brexit

in Brexit by

Theresa May has been dealt a humiliating blow in the Lords. A wrecking amendment to the EU withdrawal bill has been passed.

Peers have just voted 348 to 225 to back an amendment in the name of crossbencher, Lord Kerr, with cross-party support – meaning a defeat for the government.

The amendment requires the government to report to Parliament by 31 October 2018 on the steps it has taken to negotiate continued participation in a UK-EU customs union before the European Communities Act 1972 can be repealed.

Remaining in the customs union will stop us doing trade deals and wreck Brexit.

Conservative ex-chancellor Lord Lawson of Blaby said during the debate that he was chair of Vote Leave and “made it absolutely clear that leaving the EU meant leaving the customs union and single market”.

He went on to insist it’s “nonsensical to say you can’t trade without a free trade agreement”.

This is the latest attempt of the undemocratic Lords to thwart the will of the people who voted by a majority to leave the EU. This is establishment forcing through Brexit in name only.

Damp squib Remoaner campaign launch attracts just 1200 supporters

in Brexit by

Yesterday the Remoaner “People’s Vote” campaign was launched, in a bid to get a second EU referendum.

According to Open Britain, this was supposed to be the grand culmination of 350 protest events around the country.

It was supposedly bringing together 9 Remain organisations, backed by countless millions of pounds from billionaires like Soros, tax exile Branson, disgraced WPP founder Martin Sorrel and many more.

This great event was supposed to be the climax, after months of campaigning by toxic has-beens like Blair, Major, Mandleson, Heseltine, Patten, Blairite spin doctor Alastair Campbell (he of the dodgy dossier fame) and his “New European” newspaper, and self-appointed celebrity rich girl Gina Miller.

What was meant to be a huge national Remain protest movement ended up as a sad, pathetic damp squib with just 1200 attending the launch of this “mass movement” in the Remainer stronghold of Camden, where the average house costs more than a million pounds.

Incredibly there were NO political heavyweights attending this event – NOT EVEN any of the above mentioned toxic political has-beens.

For this campaign to succeed they will have to win a vote in the House Of Commons. However, the 4 speakers represent a tiny minority in the Commons:

  • the Green Party leader and sole MP;
  • a Lib Dem spokesperson, for the party who have just 8 MPs;
  • Tory outcast Anna Sourbry, who represents nobody but herself;
  • Chukka Umanna, who leads a tiny Blairite, anti-Corbyn faction of Labour MPs.

So, without support in the Commons this People’s Vote campaign will need a MASS POPULAR MOVEMENT. But this supposedly great popular event has embarrassingly exposed this claim to be totally delusional.

Just 1200 hundred people attended this great inaugural meeting despite

  • a huge publicity boost yesterday morning by the BBC Andrew Marr interview with Patrick Stewart, the latest “luvvie” deluded enough to think people care what he thinks, living in his privileged Camden celebrity bubble;
  • a call to arms by Open Britain and the 9 Remain campaigning organisations they claim to represent;
  • numerous plugs in the usual media suspects, with their millions of viewers, listeners and readers, including Alistair Cambell’s New European Remain campaigning newspaper which claims to have 20,000 supporters!

WHAT A DISMAL FAILURE!

Figuring prominently in much of this event publicity was a “businessman” called Peter Cook. Peter who? It took a lot of Google searching to find who is this great business leader backing this mass movement campaign. He turns out to be someone who believes music will change the tide in favour of Remain!

Fishermen to set vessels and EU flags on FIRE in mass protest

in Brexit by

Fishermen are to stage a mass protest in which they will burn EU flags and vessels in a furious stand against the Government’s transitional deal that was agreed between the UK and the European Union.

The transitional deal agreement effectively means Brexit Britain will remain as part of the Common Fisheries Policy until the end of 2020.

Fishing for Leave, who organised a protest on the Thames last month which saw Nigel Farage hurl fish into the river outside the House of Commons, are now staging a fresh protest on Sunday April 10.

Around 200 fishing vessels across the country are set to unite to take part in the demonstrations which Fishing for Leave say will be joined by Brexiteers and Tory MPs.

Demonstrations will take place at Hastings, Whitstable, Portsmouth, Milford Haven, with larger turnouts expected in Newcastle and Plymouth. During the protest at Whitstable, Fishing for Leave say they are planning to set a vessel on fire, while at Hastings, EU flags will be torched. Fireworks and horns will also mark the occasion.

Fishing for Leave spokesman Alan Hastings said: “The European Union would be free to easily eradicate what is left of our fleet and has every incentive to do so.

“The EU can achieve eradication of our fleet using the failed quota system that forces fishermen to discard fish to try to find the species you are allowed to keep.

“The discard ban addresses the discard symptom not the quota cause. Now, when a vessel exhausts its smallest quota it must stop fishing, this will bankrupt around 60 percent of the British fleet, this is why we discarded fish outside parliament to highlight this existential crisis.

“Our nation’s fishing and communities were surrendered to the EU and have suffered immeasurably through EU mis-management.”

Statements are expected to be given by Fishing for Leave spokesmen and MPs at the location of each demonstration.

Who does May actually represent? She supports the EU yet she is supposed to be be representing the UK. She is giving our fishing grounds to the EU and gave the contract to print British passports to a French company rather than a British one!

Vince Cable claims INCORRECTLY that Salisbury nerve agent victims are DEAD!

in Anglophobia / Marxism by

Lib Dem leader Vince Cable just said on BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions show being held tonight in Romsey, Hampshire, that the victims of the Salisbury nerve agent attack are dead. They are not.

Vince Cable was taking part in the panel event alongside Brexit campaigner Richard Tice, Brexit Minister Suella Fernandes, and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott.

A party leader really ought to be better informed and more intelligent than this!

Urgent, immediate investigation into CSE in Telford demanded by MEP

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Islamism by

Rotherham MEP Jane Collins has called for an “urgent, immediate investigation into the apparent industrial scale child sexual exploitation in and around Telford.”

Ms Collins, who has spent years campaigning for justice for the Rotherham victims, also said the West Midlands PCC and nine councillors who wrote to Amber Rudd saying an inquiry was ‘not necessary’ need to be named and held accountable for their actions.

“It brings me to tears to think that despite everything people said had been learnt from the scandal in Rotherham, and the suffering and abuse of those victims, we still have young girls being raped by predominantly Pakistani Muslim men, just as they were and, I believe, still are in Rotherham.”

“When did some people in the police, in social services and in local and national government start thinking that the systematic rape and abuse of children was acceptable, which trying to stop an investigation seems to indicate?”

“In Rotherham, South Yorkshire Police treated the victims like criminals. And we hear again from one of the mothers of a victim who died in a car crash described as a “prank” after suffering from two years of abuse saying the same thing.”

Torron Watson, mother of Becky, who died aged 13 said “Girls like Becky were treated like criminals.”

“A girl of 13 is not a criminal for being raped and abused, she is a victim and it is the disgusting perverts who abused and violated her who are the criminals.”

Ms Collins, who is facing bankruptcy over her outspoken criticism of how the authorities handled CSE in Rotherham, said she was also “deeply worried that people are more concerned about not offending ethnic minorities than in protecting girls.”

“Dennis MacShane admitted that the reason things were not really investigated in Rotherham was because he didn’t want to ‘rock the multicultural community boat’

“Nothing is more important than safeguarding our children from vile sexual abuse and the associated drugs, violence and even murder that comes part and parcel with it.

“If one good thing were to come out of what happened in Rotherham it should have been that people stopped treating people based on the colour of their skin and the communities they belong to and instead looked at the reality of systemic abuse of predominantly young, white girls treated like sex slaves.

“Yet years on, evidence suggests that even that hasn’t permeated the bubble in which some local authorities and politicians appear to live.

“We need to rock that boat and drain the swamp of anyone who thinks child sexual exploitation is something which can be covered up.”

Chester Council Compete with Diane Abacus for Idiot of the Year Award

in Anglophobia / Marxism by

A spectacular Twitter fail erupted this week for Cheshire West & Chester Council when they tweeted what they hoped was a good bit of PR with a photo of their employee Darren measuring a pothole. He explained it wasn’t deep enough for immediate repair.

The image showed Darren using his spirit level to measure an enormous hole while seemingly resting one end halfway down inside the crater.

The council’s tweet claimed as the hole was supposedly under 50mm deep, it will not be filled in “at this time”.

But eagle-eyed social media users hit back saying if his spirit level were longer, it would have rested on the road’s surface and proved the pothole was cavernous after all.

Hundreds expressed incredulity at the council’s claim, as this selection of tweets shows.

The council responded by claiming the picture angle is confusing – but failed to convince residents that the spirit level was resting on the road surface.

 

Top bants!! CW&C, humiliated, rather unsportingly, later deleted the tweet.

Disgraced former UKIP leader Henry Bolton starts new party

in Brexit by

The disgraced former leader of the UK Independence Party, Henry Bolton, says he is setting up a new political party called OneNation.

Has he become a sudden fan of Pauline Hanson? Her Australian party opposing Sharia law has such a name.

Luke Nash-Jones, Director of the People’s Charter Foundation stated, “The name of the new party is absurd and very disingenuous, because it is inappropriately taken from Disraeli’s one nation philosophy – a burning patriotism, that unites Britons across class divides. He famously clashed with liberal Gladstone, the inspiration of Bolton’s beloved Liberal Club, and his former party, the LibDems.”

At a UKIP meeting in Frimley two months ago, Bolton said that he’s an old school liberal. That would make him more like Gladstone, not Disraeli.

Nash-Jones continued, “Postmodernists David Cameron and Ed Miliband both also tried to lift the phrase ‘one nation’, which was a ridiculous stunt m, because traditionalist paternalistic conservative Benjamin Disraeli would have no time for them, or Horny Henry.”

Bolton is hardly a traditional Disraelian social conservative. In fact, he was turfed out as UKIP leader after just 5 months when it emerged his partner Jo Marney, a 25-year-old ex-model for whom the 54-year-old had left his wife, had sent racist messages, including one about Meghan Markle.

Bolton was ousted as UKIP leader at an emergency general meeting (EGM) last month, when two-thirds of the party membership backed the vote of no confidence by the NEC, thanks to the People’s Charter Foundation’s successful #BinBolton campaign.

Attempting to explain his bizarre formation of the new party, Mr Bolton said: “There is a need for a truly professional political party that believes in Britain, that preserves our national identity, culture, heritage and confidence and talks our great nation up rather than down; a party dedicated to the full independence of the UK in all areas of law, government and public administration.”

Fortunately the conflicted Bolton’s party has yet to register with the Electoral Commission – meaning that it has missed a deadline that would have allowed it to field candidates in May’s local council elections carrying the party name.

It is unclear where the new party will get funding from. Questions have arisen as to whether Jo Marney will be standing as a candidate – as suggested by a UKIP member earlier this year, maybe the couple should stand in Lambeth and see how unpopular they are.

On its website, OneNation says that UKIP “has sadly lost much of its credibility, influence and ability to shape national events”.

If Bolton wants to talk about losing credibility then he should take a look in the mirror. Dumping your wife and kids by text message at Xmas to get into a relationship with a racist young enough to be your daughter is a great way to lose all credibility.

Tony Blair’s OWN POLL shows 66% want UK to leave EU ‘whatever the cost’

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit by

This week, almost 175,000 people voted in a Brexit poll on Tony Blair’s Facebook page, with 66% of respondents slamming the former prime minister’s desire to stop Brexit.

This is particularly amusing since Blair set up the poll in a bid to prove that the British people no longer want to leave the EU.

The Facebook poll, which you can see below, backfired on Blair spectacularly as tens of thousands of Brexiteers demanded that we leave the EU at all costs.

This clearly shows how out of touch Blair is with the British people. Establishment demands for a second referendum are way off the mark.

Former YouTube recruiter sues Google for allegedly REFUSING to hire white and Asian men

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Tech by

YouTube stopped hiring white and Asian men in a blunt attempt to make the company more diverse, a lawsuit claims.

Arne Wilberg, a former recruiter at the Google-owned video website, said he was fired for speaking out against the company’s practices last year when it cancelled interviews with candidates who were not female, black or Hispanic for technical jobs.

Mr Wilberg’s lawsuit said YouTube implemented “clear and irrefutable policies” meant to exclude white and Asian men in an attempt to increase the company’s overall diversity, and claims the company broke discrimination laws when it dismissed him after nine years working for Google.

The lawsuit targets Google and 25 unnamed Google employees who allegedly enforced discriminatory hiring rules. It claims that for several quarters, Google would only hire people from historically underrepresented groups for technical positions.

In one hiring round, the team was allegedly instructed to cancel all software engineering interviews with non-diverse applicants below a certain experience level, and to “purge entirely any applications by non-diverse employees from the hiring pipeline.”

California labour law prohibits refusing to hire employees based on characteristics like race or gender.

Wilberg also alleges that several employees complained to Google about the company’s hiring policies, but were either ignored, transferred, or demoted.

The only thing that should be considered in the recruitment process is whether the candidate possesses the right qualifications and experience/aptitude for the job, not what colour or gender they are.

Independent MEP Janice Atkinson urges Boris Johnson to ACT NOW to prevent human catastrophe in South Africa

in World News by

Independent MEP Janice Atkinson has demanded that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson puts pressure on the South African government to prevent constitutional changes which many believe will pave the way for the ANC government’s seizure, without compensation, of property and land.

Such moves, she warns in a letter to Johnson today, are imminent. They threaten to turn South Africa into another Zimbabwe where Robert Mugabe’s government ruthlessly and often murderously seized property belonging to white settlers and farmers. She adds that such seizures could even be the precursor to South Africa descending into a Rwandan nightmare of genocide and ethnic cleansing.

In her letter Janice says: “The British government has a duty to South Africa because of our cultural links, trading partnership and because it is a Commonwealth member. It is our duty to step in and mediate.

“For far too long the hard Left of the ANC has been taking control. Their policies are increasingly shaped by the Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) because they are losing votes to that Party’s hatred, divisive racism and its promise to under-educated South Africans that they will be well if they simply take white people’s farms and businesses.”

Janice has been fully briefed on the developing crisis by leading members of the Freedom Front Plus Party (FFP), including Chief Whip Dr Corne Mulder who is an architect of South Africa’s post-apartheid constitution. The FFP is committed to defending the constitutional rights of Afrikaaners.

Janice said: “Scandalously the European Parliament has refused my repeated requests for a debate on a situation. If this were happening in other countries, the EU would properly regard it as a humanitarian catastrophe in the making. Because it is South Africa the EU chooses to turn a blind eye.

“It is clear is that imminent constitutional changes in South Africa will enable the government not only to seize land belonging to white farmers, but also to expropriate businesses, homes as well as conservation projects in the Kruger National Park.

“The world must open its eyes now to what is happening. If it does not it will have blood on its hands for not acting to prevent what will, tragically, be an entirely predictable catastrophe. Hand-wringing after the event will not be good enough.”

Yesterday in South Africa Dr Pieter Groenewald, leader of the FFP, warned that ANC amendments to an EFF Parliamentary motion to amend the Constitution to allow for expropriation without compensation raised fundamental questions about any form of private ownership of any property in South Africa.

He added that the assertion by the ANC and the EFF that the principle of willing buyer/willing seller was a hindrance to land reform would encourage President Cyril Ramaphosa to use every mechanism at the State’s disposal to carry through his plan of land expropriation.

He said: “I am telling every person in the country that the ANC and its opposition partners will amend the Constitution in this regard. They have a two thirds majority and once the Constitution has been amended, your property can lawfully be taken away from you without compensation.”

EU WASTES British tax money on statue of Marx whose ideology KILLED 110 MILLION

in Anglophobia / Marxism/World News by

Jean-Claude Juncker, the unelected President of the European Commission, has agreed to open an exhibition to Karl Marx, the father of Communism, in Trier to mark the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. The exhibition will also feature a statue of Marx – a waste of British taxpayers’ money!!

The plans have been strongly condemned in Britain and across Europe, especially in the former Communist controlled Eastern European countries where far-Left tyrannies murdered and imprisoned millions of people.

In total, Marxist regimes murdered nearly 110 million people from 1917 to 1987. For perspective on this incredible toll, note that all domestic and foreign wars during the 20th century killed around 35 million. That is, when Marxists control states, Marxism is more deadly than all the wars of the 20th century, including World Wars I and II, and the Korean and Vietnam Wars. (Source: WND.)

Tory MP Daniel Kawczynski, who as a seven-year-old boy fled to Britain with his family from the brutal Communist regime in Poland, demanded that Juncker rejects the invitation and does not attend the commemorative event.

He said: “I think it’s in very poor taste we have to remember that Marxism was all about ripping power and individual means away from people and giving to State.

“Marxism led to the killing of millions around the world as it allowed a small band of fanatics to suppress the people we must learn the lessons from this and share with our children.”

This is all very telling and it sums up what Juncker has in mind for his dream of a European superstate where democracy is just a meaningless word. Indeed, the EU’s lack of democratic accountability and desire to centralise power in an unelected Commission has already been compared to the old Soviet Union by its former leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Perhaps now some of the Remoaners will understand what the EU is really all about!

Government says Make Your Choice: Soft Brexit or No Deal

in Brexit by

Remoaners set up a petition calling on the government to give parliament the option of voting to remain in the EU when a vote on the ‘final deal’ takes place. However, this has backfired on the Remoaners spectacularly, as the government has responded to the petition saying that a vote against the final deal will be a vote for a ‘no deal’ option.

“The British people voted to leave and the Government will implement their decision. The vote on the final deal will give Parliament the choice to accept the agreement or leave the EU with no agreement.”

“The result of the referendum held on 23 June 2016 saw a clear majority of people vote to leave the European Union. Parliament overwhelmingly confirmed the result of the referendum, on 8 February, by voting with clear and convincing majorities in both of its Houses for the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill. The Government is clear that it is its duty to deliver on the instruction of the British people and implement the result of the referendum.”

“The Government has committed to hold a vote on the final deal in Parliament as soon as possible after the negotiations have concluded. The terms of this vote are clear; Parliament will have the choice to accept that deal or to move ahead without a deal.”

So, in summary, if the government is unable to get a majority in parliament for its Brexit deal, we will be leaving the EU with no deal at all, rather than Brexit being cancelled as the Remoaners wanted.

UKIP kicks out Henry Bolton in EGM no-confidence vote

in Brexit by

MBGA News has been reporting from the UKIP emergency general meeting in Birmingham today. Around 3000 members arrived at the ICC in Birmingham this afternoon to listen to speeches and cast their ballots on whether to endorse a motion of no confidence in Henry Bolton’s leadership passed by the party’s ruling national executive committee (NEC). It is the party’s first emergency meeting in 18 years.

The meeting started off in scathing fashion for Henry Bolton – former acting leader Steve Crowther said Bolton lied on his CV, acted inappropriately regarding the whole Jo Marney saga and said he’s developed a reputation for being unavailable and habitually late. Crowther also called out Henry for failing on media.

Paula Waters and Paul Oakley slammed Henry for trying to sue the NEC to ban Anne Marie Waters. Oakley also said Henry tried to push a judicial review in court against the NEC to stop the EGM.

All press have been banned in case criticism of Henry is heard by the public.

Speakers backing Henry claimed Soros is trying to take over UKIP. Another mentioned Batten to a loud round of applause and cheers which showed the people didn’t share the speakers’ attack on Batten that followed. Another pro-Bolton speaker tried brushing off Marneygate by saying the speaker has had many wives younger then him whom he has left including one wife who had a see-through catsuit.

Bolton concluded the event with words that could be understood to suggest he will take legal action if he loses the ballot.

It has just been announced that scandal-hit Henry Bolton has lost the no confidence vote. 63 per cent of members voted to kick Bolton out. The full results are as follows:

CONFIDENCE: 500

NO CONFIDENCE: 867

SPOILT: 11

TOTAL VOTERS: 1,406

VOTED: 1,378

Farage warns ‘Brexit betrayal’ would plunge UK into constitutional CRISIS

in Brexit by

Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage has said that if Prime Minister Theresa May allows Brexit to be watered down or halted by the likes of George Soros, Britain will be plunged into its “gravest constitutional crisis since World War Two”.

Farage cast May, who voted to stay in the EU, as “Theresa the appeaser” for giving in to Brussels on almost every element of Brexit negotiations and said Britain was being humiliated by the EU.

“The best-case scenario right now under our current pathetic leadership is Brexit in name only – that is about as good as it gets.”

“At worst they are going to make us fight the whole thing again.”

“That is a significant betrayal of what many millions voted for.”

Farage continued: “The real crunch point is ultimately going to be the meaningful vote in the House of Commons on whatever deal we get and that is the point at which it is not impossible to see this country plunged into a constitutional crisis,” Farage said.

“The chances of this being the case get higher with every week that goes by,” he said. “If the deal is rejected on a confidence motion, then you are looking at general elections or you are looking at another referendum.”

We must not allow the globalist elites to thwart the will of the people. The people spoke loud and clear on Brexit and May has an obligation to follow through despite her personal feelings or the feelings of the elites.

Twitter’s statement on Russian Brexit bots is DEVASTATING for Remoaners

in Brexit/Tech by

According to Britain’s Pro-Remain media, including the BBC, ITV, The Guardian and Buzzfeed – the Russians used 400 fake accounts to tweet about Brexit and to promote a Vote to Leave the European Union. However, this false narrative has been blown apart by Twitter.

In a fake news evidence session in Washington DC attended by UK ministers the social media company gave the following statement.

“We can now update the committee that our broader investigation identified a very small number of suspected Internet Research Agency-linked Twitter accounts.”

“Forty-nine such accounts were active during the referendum campaign, which represents less than 0.005% of the total number of accounts that tweeted about the referendum.

“These accounts collectively posted 942 tweets, representing less than 0.02% of the total tweets posted about the referendum during the campaign. These tweets cumulatively were retweeted 461 times and were liked 637 times.”

“These tweets cumulatively were retweeted 461 times and were liked 637 times. On average this represents fewer than 10 likes per account and fewer than 13 retweets per account during the campaign, with most accounts receiving two or fewer likes and retweets. These are very low levels of engagement.”

Twitter’s statement doesn’t specify whether the 942 tweets were pro or anti Brexit, or a mixture of the two. In total, over 62 million tweets were sent during the EU Referendum campaign.

The Remain camp’s claim that Brexit was won by “The Russians” is just another attempt to smear the Brexit result and try to push for a second referendum. Therefore, it is good news that these claims of Russian interference in the referendum have been refuted.

CONFIRMED: Soros is behind Gina Miller’s campaign to SABOTAGE Brexit

in Brexit by

George Soros was today confirmed to be backing Gina Miller’s “Best For Britain” campaign to reverse Brexit, according to a strategy document leaked to the Daily Telegraph.  The investor, famously known as the man who “broke the Bank of England” in the early 1990s, has donated £400,000 to the movement through his Open Society Foundation.

The investor is one of several senior figures linked to the Best For Britain group, who plan to launch a national advertising campaign later this month, in an attempt to turn the public against Brexit. It also plans to target MPs and convince them to vote against the final Brexit deal to trigger another referendum or general election.

Soros had invited guests to his home in Chelsea at the end of January to listen to a pitch to launch a campaign to convince the British people to overturn their vote to leave the European Union. The 87-year-old host became famous for making more than a billion pounds betting against the pound before Black Wednesday, in 1992. The Hungarian-born businessman has made himself a persona non grata to governments across Eastern Europe, and has been accused of having a hand in the fall of several governments.

Also at the launch dinner were Stephen Peel, a businessman and former Olympic rower who is also said to be putting money into the new campaign and is on the board of Best For Britain, Lord Malloch-Brown, the former Labour minister and chairman of Best For Britain, and Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive of advertising firm WPP. However, the guests at the dinner left without donating any money to the campaign.

The key objective is to convince MPs to vote against the deal Theresa May negotiates with Brussels, regardless of its content. Malloch-Brown and his backers believe that if Parliament rejects the Brexit deal when it comes to a parliamentary vote in October, the Government will fall, and Brexit can then be stopped. He was quoted as saying last month: “If we can achieve that, I think it will trigger either an election or a referendum, or a change of government without an election, or at least a change of prime minister.”

A group of billionaires colluding to stop Brexit only affirms what ordinary voters already suspected, that the EU exists to promote the interests of the wealthy elite. For Remoaners to be talking about triggering a change of government without an election is particularly sinister.

How ironic of US Democrats, and Remoaners, to be complaining about foreign interference in the democratic process of sovereign states when Soros is doing exactly that. Young people (who will be the main targets of the upcoming Best For Britain advertising campaign) need to realise that Soros and his cronies are not doing this to save you, they are doing this to make themselves even richer – these people don’t give a damn about freedom, democracy or ordinary citizens.

Remoaner thugs send DEATH THREAT to 80 year old woman

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit by

Pro-EU fanatics have sent violent letters to Brexit voters threatening to KILL them.

An 80-year-old woman in London got a note through their door containing a horrific death threat from an anonymous troll, her MP Zac Goldsmith revealed.

The letter said: “If you attempt to take away part of someone’s identity. There are consequences.

“We have watched have you have stoked the fires of Brexit and led us to this moment.

“You can no longer be tolerated. We are coming for you. We are going to kill you.”

Mr Goldsmith passed on the note to the Metropolitan Police after it was brought to his attention.

A lot of the blame for this lies firmly with the pro-EU media and the way the Remain campaign pointed the venom at older voters, and this is the result.

Remain has become a toxic brand.

Labour Party activists tell university students to vote TWICE

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Student Politics by

Yesterday a group of Labour activists set up a stall outside Plymouth University with a poster telling students to register to vote twice in the upcoming local elections – once in their home constituency and again from their university residence.

The poster read “In local elections you can register and vote both here and at home”.

Currently, it is legal to vote more than once in local elections, but not in general elections. However, rather worryingly, there were reports of students voting twice in last year’s general election and in the EU referendum. In fact some students openly boasted of voting twice for Labour. A man was also convicted in December for voting twice in the general election, by using different variations of his name.

The Electoral Commission received up to 1,000 complaints about people illegally voting twice at the general election on 8 June last year. They said there were “troubling” reports of double-voting, with 38 MPs raising concerns about the activity in their constituencies.

This sort of behaviour makes a mockery of our democratic system. It is clear that they are targetting students because they are more likely to vote Labour. Jeremy Corbyn has also bribed students by pledging to end tuition fees.

In some very marginal seats, double voting could be enough to change the overall result. It should be one person, one vote, and the rules need to be enforced to ensure there is no abuse of the voting system.

Gina Miller THREATENS new court case against Brexit

in Brexit by

Remain campaigner Gina Miller, who rose to prominence after winning a legal challenge against the Prime Minister on Article 50, has threatened a new court case against ministers over the deal with the DUP to spend an extra £1billion in Northern Ireland.

She claims the government failed to follow the proper process when it signed a confidence and supply deal with the Ulster party, claiming there should have been a Commons vote.

The campaigner sent a letter to ministers last year warning she would contest any payments without a vote.

On Sunday, Ms Miller told ITV’s Robert Peston she had learned two chunks of cash have been allocated to Northern Ireland without a decision by MPs.

I wonder why Ms Miller never challenged Gordon Brown’s signing of the Lisbon Treaty without holding a referendum first. What about all the laws that the EU passed – will she be doing something about that because our Parliament didn’t have a vote on them either?

Originally she demanded Parliament ratify Brexit, then when they did she changed her mind and said she’d lost faith in them, and that the people should be asked to ratify the final deal in the form of a referendum.

The aim here is not to be open and fair but to bring about the collapse of the government and secure a second EU referendum. It would seem that her concerns are not for the good of ordinary people.

The UK has ALREADY agreed to a Norway-style transition period

in Brexit by

According to reports in the Independent yesterday, senior EU figures stated that the United Kingdom has already “agreed in principle” to a Norway-style Brexit transition period. This will likely mean that the United Kingdom will have to adopt all new EU rules with absolutely no influence at all.

We will be forced to contribute huge sums to the EU budget, continue with free movement of people and our legal system will remain under the jurisdiction of the ECJ. But worst of all: we will NOT be able to negotiate any new international trade deals during this period.

Labour’s Shadow Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner suggested earlier in the year that such a model would render the United Kingdom as nothing more than a “vassal state.” The Belgian MEP Philippe Lamberts said that the United Kingdom would go along with this proposal for at least two years after Brexit.

Following these revelations, Conservative MPs have also told Theresa May that Britain must not be bound by EU rules during the Brexit transition period.

Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg told The Independent: “If civil servants are doing that then they are surreptitiously wiping out the Prime Minister’s red lines.

“She has been clear that leaving the European Union means that we are no longer subject to the Court of Justice, that we stop making payments and that we control our own borders.

“If the transition doesn’t give us those then it isn’t a transition, it is remaining a member of the European Union and it is simply an extension of our membership without any votes – that would be a negotiating failure for the Government.”

This all means that Britain will continue as a member of the EU in all but name until at least December 2020. This is not what we voted for!

Over 100 MPs will demand END of free movement after Brexit

in Brexit by

Jacob Rees-Mogg and more than 100 other MPs are set to come together and demand that free movement into the UK from other EU nations ends from the very moment the country leaves the European Union on March 29th 2019 at 11pm.

They will also pressure Theresa May to stick to her “red lines” and hold back any payments to the EU until a free trade deal is done.

However, Theresa May remains in control of the Conservatives, with the 1922 Committee holding back potentially-patriotic leaders such as Leadsom. Mogg can lobby all he wants, but the government will continue on a path of soft Brexit.

Rees-Mogg, the newly-elected chairman of the influential European Research Group said he will call for the post-Brexit “simplementation” period to end in 2020 – sooner than the two-year period previously suggested.

“We must have control of free movement of people as soon as we leave,” said Mr Rees-Mogg.

“This idea that we can let them carry on coming for another two years is absolutely absurd.”

“Staying in the single market or an approximation to it is a bad deal because it means we still suffer from EU control but have no say in it.

“The Norway version would be the worst of everything – it would be better to stay in the EU.”

“We want to ensure the implementation period is genuinely an implementation – not a transition that means we are basically still a member of the European Union.”

This sort of news demonstrates why Jacob Rees-Mogg has become a very popular figure over the last year or so. He should have been in government long ago but he is a threat to May because he is so popular with Brexiteers on same wavelength.

Remoaner Lord Mandelson secretly VOWED to help Brussels in Brexit talks

in Brexit by

Lord Mandelson secretly offered to help Brussels in Brexit talks. In a letter to the European Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, the Labour peer pledged his loyalty to the survival of the EU project.

He is a former EU commissioner and is in line for an annual pension of £35,000, even though he was in the role for less than 4 years. In return for this, Lord Mandelson must remain loyal to the EU, despite no longer working for them.

In the letter, obtained from the European Commission using Freedom of Information laws, Lord Mandelson suggested that they held private talks at a conference they both attended in Brussels in November.

He wrote: “I would welcome the opportunity to put some time aside for us to share some thoughts on the Brexit negotiations.

“As you know, I am deeply committed to the future of the EU as it strives for solidarity in the face of growing challenges from populist movements, geopolitics and a still recovering economy.

“I would be happy to brief you on the current pressures in British politics and share with you my assessment of how these will play out.”

Lord Mandelson added that he had already held discussions with Frans Timmermans, the European Commission’s First Vice-President.

Mr Barnier’s office was unable to arrange a meeting for the dates suggested by Lord Mandelson, but expressed his ‘sincere thanks’ for the offer and asked if it would be possible for them to meet at another time.

In April, Lord Mandelson was branded a traitor by opponents after he advised the EU to ignore the interests of Britain in Brexit negotiations.

He told a German newspaper: “Basically, one can only advise the Europeans one thing: Forget Great Britain and take care of your own interests.”

It is absolutely disgraceful for a British politician to put the EU before his own country. And as for being entitled to a guaranteed pension of £35,000 for just 4 years’ service, most pensioners who have worked hard all their lives don’t even get that! It’s another example of politicians and civil servants looking after themselves at our expense.

Theresa May REFUSES to say she’d vote for Brexit in any second referendum

in Brexit by

Theresa May has refused to say that she would vote for Brexit in an interview with French TV, and has even hinted that she would vote Remain again if there were another EU referendum.

“If a vote was to come up, I would do what I did last time round which was sit down and look carefully at the issues,” she told the France 2 TV channel.

“But there isn’t going to be another vote, so this is not an issue. What is going to happen is the UK is going to leave the European Union. There will be no second referendum on Brexit. We took the decision as a parliament that the British people should have their choice.”

The Prime Minister was criticised when she made similar comments in October 2017 when she again refused to say how she would vote in a second referendum.

Pressed for an answer on LBC radio, Ms May said: “I could say I would still vote Remain or I would vote Leave just to give you an answer to that question. I am being open and honest with you.

“What I did last time round was I looked at everything and came to a judgement and I’d do exactly the same this time round.”

How on earth do the public expect her to deliver on the will of the people when her heart isn’t in it? We need a prime minister who believes in Brexit and will implement the will of the people.

Sadiq Khan BLASTED for gloomy Brexit impact report

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit by

The Greater London Authority this week released a gloomy impact assessment report on Brexit, produced at London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s request.

The report claims that a no-deal Brexit could cause the UK to lose half a million jobs and nearly £50bn in investment by 2030.

The Leave Means Leave campaign group said in an email to supporters: “Project Fear’s expert cheerleaders such as the IMF, World Bank, OECD, and the CBI couldn’t even forecast with any degree of accuracy how UK GDP would perform for 1 year from the end of 2016 to the end of 2017 – they were mostly 50 per cent wrong! So what chance do these supposed experts, Cambridge Econometrics (who, by the way, are ardent supporters of Corbyn and unashamed Remainers) have of being accurate over 13 years to the end of 2030?”

Sadiq Khan’s gloom and doom report doesn’t reflect the facts – for example the 2017 Financial Times financial centres ranking placed London in their top spot. Not one single EU city even made it into the top 10. Two large recruitment firms dismissed fears of a Brexodus of workers from the City: Robert Walters recorded “record results” due to hiring in London during the final quarter of last year, while PageGroup rejects the notion that Paris or Frankfurt will pinch the best talent from London.

Furthermore, manufacturing output is at a ten year high, factory growth is at its highest level in seven years and during December 2017, spending growth hit an eight month high.

Despite all this good news, Remoaners are still determined to stop Brexit.

It looks like the intention from the outset of the study was to prove that Brexit is bad. The Mayor of London is wasting taxpayer funds to suit his own personal anti-Brexit political agenda. His role as Mayor is to promote London and he should be focusing on the many opportunities that Brexit will bring for London.

A second referendum must not happen: not because Brexiteers fear losing it, but because of the damage it would do to the UK’s global reputation and the loss of confidence in democracy amongst tens of millions of British voters.

Right-wing PragerU SUES YouTube for CENSORING their videos

in Tech/World News by

PragerU, a conservative educational site, is suing Google and its subsidiary YouTube, accusing the video site of censoring its online videos because of their political leanings.

In a statement sent out to its subscribers, PragerU said:

“YouTube has chosen repeatedly to restrict some of our videos for violating their ‘Community Guidelines.’ Those guidelines are meant to protect users against viewing sexual content, violent or graphic content, and hate speech.

“As a PragerU viewer, you know as well as I do that our videos contain nothing even remotely close to any of these categories.

“To date, YouTube has restricted nearly 40 PragerU videos, addressing topics ranging from religion and freedom of speech to the history of the Korean War.”

More than a year ago, PragerU filed a complaint with YouTube, hoping that the deletion of the videos was an innocent mistake.

Yet they were told by YouTube that after reviewing the videos they determined that they were indeed “not appropriate for a younger audience.”

The statement continues: “Think about the millions of actually inappropriate videos on YouTube and then ask yourself, ‘Why is our content restricted?’

“Unfortunately, the answer is rather obvious, isn’t it?  YouTube has restricted PragerU videos for only one reason: Ideological discrimination.”

Before taking legal action, PragerU did attempt to take a more diplomatic approach, but were completely ignored by YouTube. On the one-year anniversary of Google blocking their content, PragerU renewed their complaints to YouTube and re-circulated an online petition urging Google to change course, all to no avail.

Politically motivated censorship is exactly what Google/YouTube, Facebook and Twitter do. YouTube are frequently demonetising videos MBGA News, deleting videos, channels and comments, while Facebook are ghosting comments on our pages and so on. This happens both in the US and other nations.

They don’t want people to express their anger and concerns about their nation’s problems and calling out failed politicians – instead they censor the people.

Virgin Trains depart for 1984: BANS Daily Mail for being right-wing

in Anglophobia / Marxism/Brexit by

Virgin Trains should perhaps be known as the Siberian or Snowflake Express, after in a true Orwellian spirit, it has announced that it has stopped selling the Daily Mail newspaper, due to being triggered by the right-wing content.

Drew McMillan, head of colleague communication and [lefty] engagement at Virgin, told staff in an internal memo: “Thousands of people choose to read the Daily Mail every day. But they will no longer be reading it courtesy of VT.”

Let’s not forget that anti-democratic Virgin chief Richard Branson is very pro-EU and wants the Brexit vote – the will of the people – to be overturned, whilst the Daily Mail is strongly in favour of Brexit.

McMillan ranted about the need for a safe space with only left-wing political views, “There’s been considerable concern raised by colleagues about the Mail’s editorial position on issues such as immigration, LGBT rights and unemployment.”

The Snowflake Express head of comms expressed his support of thought-police, “We’ve decided that this paper is not compatible with the VT brand and our beliefs.”

“We will continue to offer The Times to customers, but we won’t be stocking the Daily Mail for sale or as a giveaway.

“This won’t suit all of our customers or all of our people – it’s certain to draw some criticism. But we’ve listened to many colleagues over the last few months, and we feel that this is the right move to take.”

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage tweeted: “We are heading in a worrying direction. Banning things because you don’t like them solves nothing.”

A spokesman for the Daily Mail spokesman hit back, saying that at a time when fares were rising, it was “disgraceful” that Virgin was announcing that “for political reasons it is censoring the choice of newspapers it offers to passengers”.

He added: “It is equally rich that Virgin chose to launch this attack on free speech in the Aslef trade union journal.

“For the record, Virgin used to sell only 70 Daily Mails a day. They informed us last November that to save space, they were restricting sales to just three newspapers: the Mirror, FT and Times.

“They gave no other reason, but it may be no coincidence that all those titles, like Virgin owner Sir Richard Branson, are pro-Remain.”

What would Richard Branson know about how the EU affects us, the British people? He lives outside the EU in his own island. He moved his business to Switzerland to escape EU laws and taxes.

EU open borders means uncontrolled immigration, higher unemployment, lower British wages and a boost to his profits. Some patriot he is!

Perhaps Virgin Trains should stick to improving their train service and not waste time and resources getting involved in politics. What will Virgin’s customers make of this?

Thought Police Republic Germany Demands Facebook BAN Rightwing Politics

in Brexit/Tech by

Many of you are fed up with Facebook and Twitter restricting free speech, attacking those who lean right. For a taste of what Britain will soon be like if Brexit doesn’t happen, look to Germany, the thought police. On January 1st the Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (network enforcement act) came into force in Germany.

Germany’s hate speech rules, known locally as NetzDG and which came into full force Monday, demand that social media giants promptly remove potentially illegal material, some of it within 24 hours of being notified, or face fines of up to €50 million.

The anti-EU party Alternative for Germany (AfD) have already felt the consequences of the new law – two of their MPs have had their Twitter accounts blocked. But they aren’t alone. The satirical magazine Titanic was also unable to use Twitter for two days, after it posted a tweet satirising the AfD.

Tech executives and lobbyists have said Germany’s new hate speech rules have the potential to limit freedom of expression of the country’s citizens, and that it should not be left to private companies to determine what should be allowed online.

The hate speech rules “put companies under tremendous time pressure when examining reported content,” said Bernhard Rohleder, chief executive of Bitkom, a German trade body. “The high fines reinforce this pressure. This will inevitably lead to the deletion of permitted content.”

AfD leader Alexander Gauland responded to the blockades by saying that “private individuals, in this case Twitter employees, should not be taking over the work of judges.”

More concerningly, the European Commission also is mulling potential new pan-EU guidelines to expand on its existing voluntary code of conduct, to which almost all of the social media companies have signed up. In an interview last year, Vĕra Jourová, the Commission’s justice commissioner, said large tech companies must deploy more resources to tackle the problem, or face potential new rules by the spring that may force them to comply with existing hate speech legislation, which was created for the offline world.

“We want the rule of law to be applied in the internet sphere,” Jourová said. “If the situation becomes unbearable, then we will act with legislation.”

Hate speech laws in the EU will end up being used against those that oppose the EU’s Big Brother agenda. Opposition will not be tolerated and alternative world views will not be tolerated. It will be used as a way for politicians and bureaucrats in Brussels to increase their control; they will never relent.

Hypocritical Google REMOVES YouTube app from Amazon Fire TV

In recent days, Google has withdrawn its YouTube app from Amazon Fire TV as retaliation in an ongoing dispute. Fire TV users wanting to access YouTube videos now have to use a web browser instead.

At the turn of the year, Google followed through on its threat to remove its YouTube app from Amazon’s devices in retaliation for Amazon refusing to sell Google products, such as its home speakers or Chromecast devices, on its website. In addition, Amazon had refused to offer its Amazon Prime Video as a Chromecast app.

Just weeks ago, the Silicon Valley elites were crying foul about the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) move to repeal Obama-era “net neutrality” rules. “The End of the Internet as We Know It,” declared a CNN headline.

It is hypocritical that companies who were pleading for net neutrality are banning and blocking content to the detriment of consumers.

Christie-Lee McNally of campaign group Free Our Internet has compiled a list of examples of censorship carried out by the Silicon Valley tech giants. It is rather a long list!

In this case, Google should practise what it preaches.

House of Lords warned not to BLOCK the will of the people

in Brexit by

Prime Minister Theresa May has been urged by MPs from the Bow Group and the Bruges Group to call on the Commons to reject any amendments by the House of Lords if peers attempt to block or water down Brexit.

However, it may be rather moot, because such a delay would probably hold up Brexit beyond the two year period in which we have to formalise a deal with the EU. Further, the Commons already rebelled against Theresa, so probably will again.

They raised concerns that Remain-backing Lords will change the EU Withdrawal Bill in a way which keeps Britain tied to Brussels rule; perhaps meaning Britain will maintain open borders with the EU.

According to figures collated by ITV’s Peston on Sunday, it was revealed more than 600 peers backed remaining in the EU compared to just 165 peers who wanted the leave the Brussels bloc.

Philip Davies MP insisted Parliament “must act on the will of the people not the Lords”.

Shipley MP Mr Davies said: “Whilst the House of Lords has a Remain majority, they would do well to remember their unelected nature and the potential backlash to their shunning of a majority decision taken by the public.

“Parliament must act on the will of the people not the Lords.”

Benjamin Harris-Quinney, Bow Group Chairman, added: “What these MPs have told the Bow Group is that their red lines are very clear and they will not support a government that does not deliver on them.

“They are far greater in number than the remain rebels and many of them have spent 30 or 40 years campaigning for Brexit – they aren’t going to give up now.

“Whilst technically Theresa May has enough support in Parliament as a whole to pass a soft Brexit – 130 Conservative MPs being opposed to it will topple the government immediately preventing such a bill from being passed.”

It is shocking that a few hundred unelected Lords have the power to overturn a mandate that 17.4 million people voted for. It is especially disturbing that the 102 unelected Lib Dem peers can halt this bill, even though they only have a handful of elected MPs. Any attempt to create a constitutional crisis will very likely lead to calls for disbandment of this unelected chamber of unrepresentative politicians.
