Julia Hartley-Brewer DESTROYS Guy Verhofstadt on Twitter after he makes HUGE ERROR

0

Julia Hartley-Brewer’s Twitter account is becoming one of the Internet’s most entertaining destinations for die-hard Brexiteers, and her latest exchange with ‘Mr EU’ Guy Verhofstadt shows that she isn’t afraid to call out the EU’s Brexit Coordinator whenever he starts mouthing off on Twitter.

In his latest piece of social media buffoonery, Verhofstadt even makes a ‘school boy’ error about the safety of security of the European Union compared to the rest of the world.

On Thursday, he said:

The EU has its flaws, but it’s a miracle we have built a Union in which we have been living in peace for more than 70 years

Oh Guy! You can add as many hashtags as you want but it won’t hide one very important point.

This all looks nice and cuddly enough, but it is clear that he is trying to knock the United Kingdom yet again by taking an underhand swipe at our decision to leave.

Fortunately, Julia Hartley-Brewer was quick to point out a glaring mistake in his tweet.

Name any two democratic nations *outside the EU* that have fought wars with each other in the past 70 years . You can’t. It’s never happened. It’s got nothing to do with being in the EU.

Basically, she is saying that peace in Europe has absolutely nothing to do with the presence of the European Union – it is everything to do in fact with the concept of these countries all having democratic systems in place!

Here’s where it all gets even more hypocritical – Guy Verhofstadt is using the example of the Second World War to try and push the EU’s ridiculous agenda of ‘togetherness’ – many EU-lovers also churn out the same twaddle on a daily basis.

However, Remoaners love to attack people who use Winston Churchill to promote a sense of pride in being British!

You really couldn’t make it up.

While keeping the peace in the years immediately after 1945 may have been down to a new era of cooperation between European nations, to say that the EU is responsible for 70 years without a European war is just ludicrous.

The truth of the matter is that Europe looked at the horrors of World War 2 in the immediate aftermath and said ‘never again.’

It is also slightly ironic that Verhofstadt’s EU is in love with the idea of a United States of Europe.

A continent under the control of one single power. OK mate.

Some of the other Twitter replies are equally as scathing towards Verhofstadt.

@MorrisTwon saidNATO still pre-dates them and Verhofstadt clearly said EU. The EU’s predecessors, in whatever form, lacked the political and military frameworks to keep any peace. He is blatantly attempting to credit the current EU with an outcome that it had no part in playing, NATO kept peace.

That pretty much sums up the stupidity of Verhofstadt’s tweet. He seems to think that the EU has been going for longer than it actually has.

@RealTomEvans saidOne country in particular is trying a different tack to rule Europe. Twice marching through countries didn’t work but fiscally it may.

Greece. Enough said.

 

Nigel Farage attacks Corbyn and Khan, and it’s brilliant to watch

0

The ex-leader of UKIP Nigel Farage has been warming up for a key conference presentation in the USA by appearing on Fox News and telling the American people to IGNORE British left-wing politicians like Sadiq Khan and Jeremy Corbyn.

Speaking on the US rolling news TV channel, he told millions of Americans that the United Kingdom shouldn’t be judged by the words and actions of people like Khan and Corbyn, and he also made the point that Trump’s message is beginning to take hold across the Atlantic.

Naturally this was also an attack on the screaming hysterics in the United Kingdom who insist that Trump ‘isn’t welcome,’ and it has already been proved that these people do not speak for everyone.

Farage’s comments included:

“Please do not judge my country by the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, Mr Corbyn and the left.

The truth is in the UK too, people are beginning to get the Trump message. I very much want to say, he’d be very welcome coming to our country.”

Of course he would!

After all, he is the President of the United States, and people who worship those who are screaming blue murder about Trump’s travel plans should look at those far more hateful individuals who have had the red carpet treatment in Britain.

Even Khan himself has fallen into this trap of hypocrisy in the past.

When looking at some of the reactions to Farage’s latest TV interview, it is clear that there are many people who are also keen for Britain to not be judged on the basis of Khan and Corbyn’s words.

Thank you for that Nigel. it is so embarrassing to have such disgusting ignorant fascist Labour ministers and the Mayor of London being so rude and hostile to our foreign allies. Who the hell do they think they are?

Whether you are a Trump lover or a Trump hater, the USA is always going to be the United Kingdom’s most powerful ally, and this makes the current wave of anti-Trump hatred all the more ridiculous.

If we allowed Anjem Choudary to preach his hate speech for years, we can let the President of our greatest ally pay a visit.

That’s a very good point! It’s amazing how some of the anti-Trump brigade remain hilariously silent about the past record of people like Anjem Choudary. Yet again, hypocrisy is running at the heart of left-wing hatred in this country.

To all those left wingers who don’t want Trump here. You want open borders, you can’t keep him out in that theory. Have a nice day! Mr Trump, I’ll stick the kettle on.

This is perhaps a simplified way of looking at the situation, but it’s pretty funny nonetheless. How can these people scream ‘Britain Is Open’ and then move straight onto saying that Trump must not be allowed into the UK?

The above point may be good for starting an argument in the pub or on Facebook if nothing else.

Theresa May is about to give in to Brussels AGAIN, and Brexiteers are furious

0

It has been reported today that the government’s top Brexit negotiators are on the verge on allowing EU residents who arrive during the Brexit transition period to stay in Britain permanently.

Although the original plan was to apply some sort of limit or restriction on this happening while the Brexit transition phase was underway, it now appears that our government is prepared to perform a complete U-turn on this to try and kick-start negotiations once again.

Rough translation? We are capitulating to the EU’s demands as our negotiators are under the illusion that it will actually push them into making concessions of their own.

According to a report in the International Business Times:

Theresa May is looking to reverse her initial plan to stop EU citizens arriving in the UK during the Brexit transition phase, it has been reported.

Three weeks after the prime minister said that those coming from the EU after 29 March 2019, when the transition phase starts, would not have the same rights as those already in the UK, Downing Street is said to be looking at changing this policy, the Times reported.

Although a final decision has not been reached, a source told The Times: “This is a big U-turn in the offing, with another source confirming that planning was under way, adding: “That’s where thinking at the centre/Dexeu (Brexit department) etc now is.”

The move would be an overture to Brussels to ensure a quicker agreement on a Brexit deal, the paper said, although if the EU did not offer an equivalent deal, it could mean Britons living in Europe would have fewer rights than Europeans in the UK.

Brussels has said that a Brexit deal could be in danger if the UK stopped people arriving during transition and could not settle permanently during the transition period, which will last until the end of 2020.

However, this could anger Brexiteers, who are concerned that it could lead to an open-ended transition. Jacob Rees-Mogg, head of the European Research Group said: “There has to be some difference on March 30 from March 29 otherwise we haven’t left.”

The biggest problem with this isn’t so much that EU arrivals are being encouraged during the transition period, but more the fact that it is now unclear exactly how long this is going to last.

At least with a clear plan in place and a set date in mind, the United Kingdom can be clear about the whole process.

However, with more and reports now emerging that our government is pushing for an ‘indefinite’ Brexit transition period, this would mean that any processes within it would also continue for the same never-ending period of time.

As the last paragraph above suggests, this could be yet another giant leap towards the dreaded BRINO – Brexit In Name Only.

If EU arrivals have their right to stay in Britain indefinitely extended because the Brexit transition period goes on and on and on, people will ask if the country has even left the European Union.

Jacob Rees-Mogg’s feelings on this manner will be replicated by Brexiteers all over the United Kingdom if this change in Theresa May’s thinking is pushed through.

 

Jacob Rees-Mogg just attacked Theresa May’s extended Brexit transition, and it’s brilliant

0

The Conservative MP and Brexiteers’ Champion Jacob-Rees Mogg has just launched an astonishing attack on Theresa May and her plans for an extended or even INDEFINITE Brexit transition by making it clear that it would be a betrayal of the British people.

Writing in The Telegraph, JRM destroys the idea that it would benefit Britain, and his brutal points show exactly why he would be a far better choice to head up our team of so-called negotiators in Brussels.

He writes:

“Concern over lost control over migration was a significant issue in the referendum.

“Whoever compiled this document proposes no changes to it for an indefinite period and would thereby let down millions of voters for whom this was an important issue.

“To avoid the perversion of democracy that Brexit in name only would be it is essential that we are able to sign trade deals in the fixed transition period even if they are implemented when it is over.”

Very well put. Immigration issues are being ignored completely, and it is a complete insult to every single Leave voter who only made this decision because of concerns over this very thing!

Rees-Mogg is only saying what millions of other people are saying here, and every passing cock-up like this Brexit transition proposal simply strengthens the case for walking away from Brussels.

Think of the money that we would save while simultaneously applying an almost instant ‘control’ on our borders.

Why is it being left to Rees-Mogg to provide the only reassuring soundbites in this whole sorry mess?

Theresa May is full of bluster and waffle that frankly sets nobody’s minds at ease, and she never sounds like someone who is prepared to put Britain’s best interests first.

Perhaps this is indicative of someone who has been a Remainer all along, but enough is enough.

The latest news below is further evidence that negotiating with Brussels simply won’t work.

BREAKING: EU demands an even BIGGER Brexit divorce payment from the UK

The latest reports from Brussels have indicated that the European Union’s negotiators are set to demand an increased Brexit divorce bill if the transition period is extended after March 2019.

In the last week, it has emerged that the original planned final date for the transition on 31st December 2020 could be put back ‘indefinitely,’ and now the EU has hit back by saying that any extension to this period could add £4 billion or even £5 billion onto the final bill.

Naturally this extortion could be avoided altogether if we just walk away, but we’re sick and tired of saying this.

Like many Brexiteers, we are fed up with our own government not listening to our points of view, and now it looks like we could all be hit in the back pocket by this madness!

Remember that every extra penny that is sent to Brussels doesn’t come out of thin air – it comes from every single hard-working taxpayer.

According to a report in The Independent:

Britain’s Brexit divorce bill will rise by up to £5bn if Theresa May seeks a longer transition period than Brussels wants, a commons inquiry has been told.

A government minister did not dispute the figure, which was put to him by the chair of the European Scrutiny Committee.

“This is something which, like the Roald Dahl Tales of The Unexpected, has suddenly appeared,” said Sir Bill Cash, the committee’s Conservative chair.

The transition period was beginning to look “as long as a piece of string”, Sir Bill told Robin Walker, the Brexit minister, and Sir Tim Barrow, the UK’s ambassador to the EU.

In reply, Sir Tim acknowledged that the Government’s estimate of the financial settlement – between £35bn and £39bn – was based on the transition concluding at the end of 2020.

Guidelines issued by No 10 yesterday hinted that the transition could be longer, while repeating the aim for it to be “around two years” from Brexit Day, in March 2019 – therefore, extending into at least 2021.

However, Sir Tim insisted there was no question of a transition of “unlimited duration” – pointing to the EU’s directives seeking a conclusion at the close of 2020.

“That is the basis on which we are currently talking to the Commission,” he told the committee.

We really don’t know where to start with this one!

There are more and more cases of the word ‘indefinitely’ appearing in the press at the moment in relation to any sort of Brexit transition, and therefore there is a real possibility that the Brexit divorce bill could just go up and up and up.

Like so much else at the moment, this is not a negotiation – this is extortion.

It is like the EU’s top brass are trying to see how far they can push Britain before our own team decides to just walk away, and all that we are seeing is a complete lack of spine on our part.

Enough is enough.

Let the EU talk big, but respond with an ultimatum of our own.

‘No deal’ has to be better than the current insulting package that is being put on the table.

BREAKING: EU planning Brexit revenge by BANNING UK DRIVERS from their roads

0

It has been reported today that Brussels chiefs are planning to BAN UK drivers from the European Union’s road network once we leave the EU.

Under proposals put forward by the European Commission, the plan is to achieve this by simply refusing to recognise the validity of the UK’s driving licence.

This in turn would make it impossible for British motorists to drive their own vehicles within the EU, hire a car or even obtain insurance.

According to a report in The Telegraph:

British drivers could be stopped from travelling on the continent after Brexit because UK driving licences will no longer be recognised, the European Commission has suggested.

Failure to secure a deal on transport during the negotiations would see the mutual recognition of licences among member states withdrawn, meaning travellers would also potentially be unable to hire cars or take out insurance.

The warning was issued in presentation slides released by the European Commission on Thursday morning, just hours before Theresa May and her Brexit ‘war’ Cabinet were due to meet at Chequers to agree on the UK’s final negotiating position.

For starters, if this were to happen, surely it would go without saying that our own government would return the favour.

That threat alone should be enough to make sure that this simply doesn’t happen.

After all, why would the EU want to inflict a punishment upon their own citizens as well, unless they are determined to ‘cut of their noses to spite their faces.’

More to the point, this doesn’t sound like the sort of idea that would come from a team of negotiators who are interested in, well, negotiating.

Let’s just hope that our government is prepared to ‘fight fire with fire.’

 

EU students owe British taxpayers a STAGGERING amount, and we won’t get it back

0

The latest statistics have revealed that EU students owe a staggering £592 million in terms of student loans that have been taken out to cover tuition fees and other costs.

More worryingly, it has also been revealed that there is hardly any chance that our government will be able to recoup this huge amount of money once we have left the European Union.

Ultimately it is British taxpayers who will be taking the hit for this, and it now also seems that many foreign students have been advised to take advantage of the Brexit vote and ‘rip off’ the British people in this way.

This may explain why EU-based applications to study in the United Kingdom skyrocketed after the Brexit vote in June 2016.

According to a report in The Sun:

STUDENTS from EU countries owe British taxpayers £592million — and it may be impossible to recoup once we leave the EU, The Sun can reveal.

The Brexit vote has triggered a 27 per cent surge in applications to study in the UK as students rush to start before we leave the EU in March next year.

EU students are currently entitled to borrow up to £9,250 a year to pay college and university tuition fees, just like British applicants.

But Sun inquiries have found some students, for example from Romania, are being told by go-betweens they will not have to repay a penny.

One agent encouraging Romanian students to apply for UK courses told a Sun investigator posing as a student: “This is the last year — your last chance.”

Others firms offered assistance to applicants for a £60 fee.

One Romanian-speaker working for a UK agency told us: “(After Brexit) it is over. Everybody who misses residency after 2019 will not be able to get into the UK.”

Asked whether he would have to pay back the loan if he returned to Romania, the agent said: “Even if they search for you, you will not have earnings registered . . . they can’t find you.”

Another Romanian-speaking agent from a London-based call centre firm told The Sun man: “You are not going to miss Romanians.

“There are a lot of Romanians in this programme on every course. You will find them everywhere.”

The Brexit vote has triggered a 27 per cent surge in applications to study in the UK
She added that a simple “declaration” would be enough to stop British authorities chasing loan debts.

She told him: “You have to repay when you finish the courses and your income is more than £21,000. After 30 years the debt is cleared.

“They think you will receive a good job here and repay.”

How the hell have they been able to get away with such a blatant attempt to fleece the British taxpayer?

There are even people offering ‘consultancy’ services who take a fee to advise students about taking advantage of this scam!

The idea that 100% of them will remain in the United Kingdom and make an active contribution to our society and economy is cloud-cuckoo land to the extreme.

Perhaps this extraordinary sum should be mentioned in the next round of talks about any sort of Brexit divorce bill as it clearly eclipses any figures that have been mentioned so far.

Annual migration into UK PLUMMETS by 45% to under 100,000, but there’s bad news too

0

It has been announced by the Office For National Statistics that net migration into the United Kingdom has fallen by around 45% to less than 100,000 people over the last twelve months of recorded information – the first time that it has fallen to this level in five years.

However, there is mixed news for the government, as it is still clear that their own net migration targets are being woefully missed.

According to a report in The Express:

UK MIGRANT numbers from the European Union (EU) have fallen below 100,000 for the first time in five years – but overall net migration is still way above the Government’s target, official figures show today.

Estimated net migration to the UK from the EU was 90,000 in the year ending September 2017 – the first time it has fallen below 100,000 since the 12 months ending March 2013, when it was at 95,000, official figures show.

The number is the lowest since 2012 when EU migration was 82,000.

And the fall, from an estimated 165,000 the previous year, is a 45 percent drop year on year.

However, overall net long-term migration – the balance between the number of people arriving and leaving – was estimated at 244,000 in the year to September.

While the latest figures show the Government is still failing to meet its target of 100,000 overall net migration, the numbers represent a fall of 29,000 – 11 percent.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the measure was now at a similar level to early 2014 and follows record levels of net migration during 2015 and early 2016.

EU net migration has fallen over the last year, as fewer EU citizens are coming to the UK and the number leaving the UK increased, according to the ONS.

However, there are still more EU nationals coming to the UK than leaving, statisticians added.

So to sum this all up like your average government speech, ‘there is progress being made, but there is more that can be done.’

Government confirms Britain WILL NOT be forced to obey these EU rules after Brexit

The British government has confirmed harmful and costly EU regulation will not be forced upon the British people and businesses after Brexit.

Ian Duncan-Smith appeared on the Daily Politics show and outlined the EU regulation the British government will look at changing after Brexit.

Mr Duncan-Smith also confirmed that the UK will not be tied down to obeying EU regulation.

Brexit Secretary, David Davis, today said that Britain and the EU should be able to trust each other with “regulations and the institutions that enforce them”.

Ian Ducan-Smith said: “Let me give you a list of them, I wrote them out before I came. I will give you a whole list.”

“The clinical trials directive which, has dumped non-commercial trials in the UK, we were the leaders in commercial trials.

“Let’s go on, the MiFID II which is coming in is going to destroy a lot of ordinary small stockbrokers with a massive amount of new extra regulation.

“The other one which is quite interesting is Solvency II. Solvency II damages the UK because the UK has this equity market where people equity release as they get older. What’s actually happened is that puts one to two percent extra cost on that. We will want to look at that.

“Labelling, for example, some of the labelling is so vast, it’s bigger than the packages that they now label.

“There are more than that. I am simply saying there are lots of areas that we will look at. What Mr Davis was not saying today was we won’t ‘look to change’. What he was saying was ‘we will always look to discuss that with our European partners in a free trade arrangement and explain to them why we want to change stuff where it’s necessary, that’s all.”

ANGER as Diane Abbott compares UK immigration concerns to PRE-NAZI GERMANY

0

There has been an angry reaction about the Labour MP and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott compared concerns over current levels of immigration in the United Kingdom to the situation shortly before the Nazis came to power in Germany.

It was reported that she made the comparison during a speech in London.

Her remarks have been met with disbelief as it has already been established that immigration concerns were pretty much at the heart of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union in June 2016.

According to a report in the Daily Express:

DIANE Abbott has been blasted as “out of touch” after she compared people who have concerns about immigration in the UK to those who “scapegoated” minority groups in pre-Nazi Germany, it has been reported.

The Shadow Home Secretary said the economic debate “heightened” the discussion about immigration and compared the atmosphere to Germany between 1919-1933.

Speaking to an audience in London, she said: “Economic collapse has always led to scapegoating the other.

“The debate around immigration has been incredibly heightened by the economic consequence of the 2008 crash.

“Historically such as in the period of the Weimar Republic in Germany between the wars, economic collapse has always led to scapegoating the other.”

But her remarks have caused fury among MPs.

Conservative MP for Kettering Philip Hollobone said: “Diane Abbott has always been wrong about immigration and her latest remarks demonstrate how completely out of touch she is with the majority of public opinion out there in the real world.

“I’m afraid her London centric anti-Brexit views appear to be more warped than ever.”

If someone as high-profile as Diane Abbott is prepared to potentially lump millions of Leave voters into the same category as some of the most horrific scenes that humanity has ever witnessed, we are entering into very dangerous territory.

When are people going to realised that it is perfectly acceptable to have concerns over immigration?

The left, and ironically the extreme-left, have created this ridiculous narrative where anyone who tries to debate the issue with legitimate concerns is met with an extraordinary level of bile.

More to the point, with a Corbyn government in the future (shudder) this sort of ridiculous comment could be coming from the actual Home Secretary.

A Home Secretary who would clearly despise millions of the people who she supposedly represents.

We’re not even going to mention the sheer hypocrisy of anyone in the Labour Party mentioning how bad the Pre-Nazi situation was, considering the rampant anti-Semitism that is still rife in Labour no matter what the official line may be!

Having said all of this, a Diane Abbott gaffe simply isn’t a shock anymore.

She drops clanger after clanger, and any sort of criticism of her approach is met with the predictable Momentum-inspired howling.

Thank heavens that this circus of a Labour Party is further away from real power than ever before.

With so many people actually having genuine concerns about immigration into the United Kingdom, her arguments simply do not add up.

Quelle surprise …

HUMILIATION for anti-Brexit protest bus organisers after it is BANNED by local council

0

A bus that has been decorated with anti-Brexit slogans has been hilariously banned by a local council from using a major street shortly after it began its UK tour.

The so-called ‘Brexit Facts Bus’ wanted permission to go on display in a prominent Oxford street, but local authority bosses were having none of it!

According to a report on the BBC:

A council has been criticised for “banning” an anti-Brexit bus from stopping in a street in Oxford.

The “Brexit Facts Bus” started a tour of the UK earlier but has been told it cannot park in Broad Street when it comes to the city on Monday.

John Tanner, secretary of the Oxford European Association, called it an “extraordinary” attack on free speech.

But Oxfordshire County Council said it could not “permit political advertising on the highway”.

The Conservative-controlled authority added the rules were the same whether they were “signs or vehicles parked on the road for an event” and applied to all councils under the Local Government Act 1986.

“The county council appears to be saying that anything that’s political has no place on the public highway, which is news to me,” Mr Tanner said.

Dare we say that other political vehicles have been allowed to visit the area during election time because at the time they were related to an ongoing issue that hadn’t been settled, i.e. before voters had gone to the polls.

On the other hand, the question of Brexit IS DONE AND DUSTED, no matter what anyone may tell you!

We just hope that other local authorities around the UK follow suit. After all, this is now the time for the country to come together behind Brexit.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Brexit

Here are 5 interesting facts that you didn’t know about Brexit.

There is a lot of doom, gloom and scaremongering in the news lately about Brexit so we thought it will be a good idea to report on something else – interesting Brexit facts.

  1. 20,833 laws will be affected by Brexit.

You read that correctly…more than 20,000 laws will be impacted by the UK’s (correct) decision to leave the European Union.

The majority of these laws refer to external relations, agriculture and fisheries. Surprisingly, only 189 taxation laws will be affected by Brexit.

2. The UK’s name will be removed from the Lisbon Treaty.

According to Politico: “The Parliament’s Constitutional Affairs Committee says Brexit may mean “at least material changes” to the Lisbon Treaty, the core legal document of the EU, and related protocols and declarations.”

3. The EU will continue to monitor the UK financially until 2024.

EU-funded projects are subjected to ex-post evaluations. The UK is expected to cut the majority of her ties with the EU in 2020.

“The U.K. government has promised to guarantee funding beyond the point at which the U.K. leaves the EU, in respect of structural and investment projects where the U.K. bids directly on a competitive basis,” citing university participation in EU research projects as an example.

4. The European Parliament will have to remove 73 British MEPs

The Parliment will either increase the number of MEPs other countries have or remove 73 MEPs altogether.

Currently, the European Parliment has 751 MEPs.

5. The UK will leave the European Nuclear Agency. 

The U.K. government has announced it will be leaving Euratom, the EU nuclear agency.

We hope you found some of these facts interesting!
