The Brexit anomaly

There have been a few things strange about the UK’s attempt to leave the EU. I use the word ‘attempt’ because the process has barely started. It’s not guaranteed to happen. Parliament can overturn the referendum result or the EU can demand we do it again and again until we get the right answer. They have form on this one.

They haven’t though. I haven’t heard a single call from the EU to re-run the referendum. They would have a case: the margin between ‘out’ and ‘in’ is only 4% and a hell of a lot of people didn’t vote at all. Yet, they haven’t said a word.

Just before the referendum, Cameron was saying that ‘In the event of a Remain win, renegotiation of our relationship with the rest of the EU would begin the day after the referendum’.

The day before the referendum, a chap called Junckers stated that there would be no further renegotiation within the EU. The EU was not going to concede anything more to the UK. The day before the referendum.

He could have waited until after the referendum to say that. Waited 24 hours or so but no, the day before the referendum he stated that Cameron had no more to negotiate. The deal is settled. That could have been enough to swing the vote.

There was a petition to re-run the referendum which gained 4.1 million signatures. Oh we know it was rigged, there were some giving UK postcodes to people overseas so they could sign it. Still, the Government could have said ‘well 4.1 million people want this so…’

They didn’t. They rejected the petition out of hand (correctly, since they will also know it was rigged because as well as your postcode, it can log your IP address).

Even so, they could have accepted it. They’ve accepted so many rigged results and fake science, who would notice one more?

So both the EU and our own government reject the idea of a second referendum even though both have ample excuse to call for it. Also, a high ranking EU minister made a statement that would have swung wavering voters on the day.

Now we have a leadership battle between Andrea Leadsom and Theresa May for the Prime Monster’s job. I have no idea why anyone would want that job at this time. Still, there they are. One strongly pro-Brexit and one strongly pro-Remain. Is this a second referendum by the back door? Except of course, only Tory party members get to vote.

Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and others have moved aside for the unknown Andrea. She takes on the very well known Theresa.

Is anyone else wondering if they are watching a carefully choreographed series of events?

I don’t think I can predict the ending of this one but I think this is all going according to someone’s plan. I have no idea whose plan, but it’s all going too smoothly to be random.

I don’t like the feeling of being manipulated.

  1. I think you might be surprised by the level of support that Leadsom has in the rank and file of the party. And May seems to have learned nothing from Project Fear because now they’re turning it on Leadsom.

    It seems they never learn…

  3. Sorry, this is a rather long comment.
    I think there is a stitch up of sorts going on. The Remainiacs are still stoking fear and revulsion at the prospect of leaving the EU. Probably with the intention of reneging on Brexit once they feel the public are behind them.

    Fear – Economic worries:
    As the stock market has risen way above the pre-referendum level, they can’t use that. However, the value of the pound is down just as they predicted. What the BBC and other media don’t mention of course is that the Bank of England has two major levers available to enable it to control the value of the pound. Both have been used to the max to lower its value. Firstly, quatitive easing, aka printing money. I don’t believe there was any good reason for this but it was announced immediately after the result was known. Secondly, interest rates. Again lowered for no good reason.

    Revulsion – The threat of mass deportation of the 3 million EU nationals already here:
    The Leave campaigns always stressed that everyone already here had an absolute guarantee that they could stay indefinitely with no complications. There are various international treaties etc backing that, such as the Vienna Convention. UKIP (I’m a member) have always been clear on this
    .
    However, since the vote, the Remainiacs have been arguing that EU nationals here should be used as bargaining chips in exchange for good deals for UK nationals in the EU. A bit like a human shield. At first, it seemed to me that the media was trying to blame Leave campaigners and interrupting when they tried to clarify. Fortunately Andrea Leadsom and supporters have now issued a very clear statement confirming the guarantee. See Daily Politics BBC from Friday. Only Theresa May and supporters are refusing to give a guarantee.

    I think this is utterly vile. I know several EU nationals living here who are now terrified for their future and feel extremely unwelcome in Britain. With repulsive characters like May around there is little I can do to reassure them.

    Of course Brexit is blamed by parts of the media for all of this. Though it is neither the fault of the concept or of the supporters.

  4. I’ve been thinking myself that the whole shebang is a piece of theatre, with more twists and turns than the World Gymnastics Championships.

    It’s like a ‘reality’ TV show: “I’m a Celebrity Politician in the Westminster Jungle, Put Article 50 on Ice, Because Britain Hasn’t Got Talent to be Independent”.

    The two main Brexit faces, Farage and The Boris, were summarily dismissed, the latter being allegedly stabbed in the back by his pal, Gove, who suddenly realised, after decades of friendship, that Boris wasn’t up to the job.

    So, it looks like we’re getting St Theresa, who says there is no rush to invoke Article 50. Quite right. Who do these proles in Geordieland and the Welsh Valleys think they are to vote ‘Leave’?

    Then we have the comic capers in the Labour Party. So much distraction. More theatre to confuse matters?

    To complete the three-ringed circus, we have Scotland’s First Monster, Nicola Sturgeon, and her hilarious efforts to be taken seriously by anyone at all during her whistle-stop tour of the EU in a bid to get special treatment.

    Despite the obvious contempt for the SNP by the EU, Spain, France, etc., the Scottish Nannying Puritans are still obsessed with staying in a club which doesn’t want them. It’s the opposite of the old (Groucho Marx?) gag that I wouldn’t want to belong to a club that would admit someone like me as a member.

    Sorry, but this is another longish rant as well, but it gets potentially more interesting and worrying.

    So far, we have what could be the illusion that Brexit won. I am even wondering if the vote was fixed contrary to the way I expected it to be fixed (if you are going to commit electoral fraud, where better than in Labour areas?) and that the Jo Cox staged? event was to pretend that the PTB really wanted a Remain vote.

    It is complicated to work through, but I watched a video recently, which I’ve been unable to find again, but the gist was that the PTB really wanted a Brexit (the delay might be another pretence that the Establishment is worried) so that they could destroy the UK over the next 7-10 years, meanwhile the rest of the EU would become a single country, perhaps even with Russia and China joining! Eventually, Brits will be so poor that they’ll be begging to get back into the EU and have to totally submit to every jot and tittle of a new EU constitution.

    Not sure about Russia and China, but it is possible that without the UK, the EU can be fast-tracked into a single political entity, while our traitors work away at finishing the job of ruining the UK for it to be slipped back into the EU superstate in a few years’ time.

    Whatever the truth is, I’m sure we’re being stitched up.

    • I think some of that may be correct.

      The UK is already in serious, possibly terminal trouble, but most people haven’t yet worked that out because the status quo is maintained by borrowing and spending.

      We’re heading for a slump this year or early next, followed within a couple of years by a major recession. Both of these will be blamed on Brexit result – whether we actually leave or not.

      The major problems will be in 5-10 years and will revolve around energy, social change, and especially debt. It will be during this time that the masses, especially the unionised masses, realise that they have no pensions. Those with private (funded) pensions will discover that
      a) These have been quietly moved under government control (happened 2 years ago)
      b) Government has been systematically borrowing against them (or directly using them) to oil the unfunded public sector pensions et al.
      The public sector workers will find
      a) Their funded pensions are being used in the same way
      b) Their unfunded pensions (the majority) are either going to be woefully short. They will strike over this and demand more money. They will strike against raising the retirement age again – leaving that to the private sector.

      If only you’d voted to remain….

      It will be during this that the real squeeze will happen. See Greece, Cyprus and other, historical examples of what happens when government need to handle unpayable debt.

      I think ALL of the above is going to happen, irrespective of EU membership.

      • I think you’re right. The globalists want us skint so they can take over completely. I didn’t know about all the pension stuff, but it makes sense. Then industry continues to relocate abroad (with the help of EU grants), our energy needs aren’t met due to reliance on renewables (huge EU fines if we stay in and open mothballed coal-fired stations), etc., etc. I’m sure they have it all worked out.

        Trouble is if/when the overdue revolution comes, they’ll probably introduce martial law.

  5. Like your good self Leggy I believe we are once again being shafted by our political elites.

    Quisling Cameroon started it by not invoking Article 50 on June 24th at the same time as his pathetic resignation. Another one of his promises given whilst he crossed his fingers behind his back. Since then it has been a careful choreographed plan to kick Brexit into the long grass.

    Once May has been installed in Number 10 I believe we will see her call a snap general election to give her the “mandate” to invoke Article 50. See what she is doing there!

    As for the shenanigans in the Labour Party: it’s only the Westminster MPs throwing a tantrum because they fear that when the snap genaeral elction comes the “great unwashed” might not return them to the Westminster trough.

    So, all in all, our political masters are going to get the result they wanted and really short of a civil uprising they know they are going to get away with it.

    • Barnacle Bill,
      Two things

      . 1.We now have fixed term parliaments, so the new PM will not be able to call a general election unless there is a 66 percent majority to do so. I don’t see MPs queuing up to forego nearly another four years of salaries, pension contributions and perks.

      2. Civil servants were forbidden to formulate a Plan B in the event of a vote to leave. So there is a policy vacuum. It would be pretty stupid to start rigorously time-limited negotiations before working out an exit plan in some detail and
      (2a) The negotiations will now be the responsibility of the incoming new PM. Whilst officials can do a great deal of “scoping” if they forego their August holidays, they will have to wait until early September for definite political direction from ministers in the new cabinet.

  6. It’s a sorry state of affairs if you feel, as I do, that if you’re at odds with HMG you’ll be shafted. If the offer of a referendum hadn’t been a cynical ploy on the part of Cameron then the government (whose responsibility it was, not the Brexit campaigners) should have had a plan in place in case of a Brexit vote (and the vote really, really shouldn’t have come as the utter shock to the politicians that it did) and should have been outlining it to the country on 24th June with timescales. Cameron should have been neutral throughout the whole campaign so that, irrespective of the vote outcome, he could have fulfilled his responsibility to the country by continuing as PM instead of triggering a contest.

    I too have been surprised by the EU’s response. Looks as if they can’t wait to get shot of us. Perhaps they’re just genuinely fed up with having to drag a reluctant UK along with their plans. On the other hand they’re losing a significant contributor to the coffers and that usually outweighs everything else. I read on another blog a comment saying that if Article 50 isn’t triggered by April then the UK needs unanimous agreement by all the other member states to be allowed to leave. If that’s so then all that May needs to do is sit tight. What’s struck me about the whole thing is how starkly it’s exposed the disconnect between government and those whose interests it’s supposed to represent.

  7. I wonder if we are all being a bit too pessimistic?
    I think that one of the problems that now faces the Government is that, during the campaign, no one really spelt out what ‘Leave the EU’ actually means. I can’t speak for others, but I was quite happy with the Common Market and the general coming together of the people. By that, I mean cooperation in science, travel, education, prosperity, and so on. Where things began to sour for me was when the WHO, IPCC, and the UN in general started to move in and take over. How on earth did the healthy, wealthy West become a target for the malign influence of those international organisations? Did they not have enough on their plate with the poverty-struck rest of the world – Africa, South America, India, Pakistan, etc? So, for me, quitting the EU meant extracting the UK from international shenanigans of a political nature.
    So we are now in a position where no one knows what to do. What treaties or parts of treaties need to be abrogated? I don’t know, but I would say that we must withdraw from the EU Parliament for a start and stop paying towards its upkeep. In other words, take it piecemeal and withdraw a bit at a time, retaining those treaties or parts of treaties which are not directly political.
    Everything will depend upon the integrity of our Government.

    • We desperately need to get out of the UN as well. Many of our laws are handed down from there. The UN gained people’s confidence with its supposed humanitarian façade for a few decades before seriously attacking the underpinning of national sovereignty – all with the collusion of the various traitors in governments around the world.

      The various agencies of the UN are now well geared up to the continual removal of personal freedoms through the usual methods, such as political correctness, healthism and environmentalism. The latter also enables virtual land grabs around the world, thus reducing the available space for human activity via world heritage sites, biospheres and control of the entire Antarctic region.

      But try telling Joe Bloggs that the UN is anything but super-friendly and not a major re-engineering scheme to control and depopulate the world.

        • The UN makes it simple, because they ‘care’ so much about us (smoking bans, flu vaccines, abortion ‘clinics’ for Africa, etc.) so they can hand down any old ‘laws’ and everyone falls over themselves to comply.

          The supposed Illuminati bloodline families, or whatever demons are ruling the earth, would still be able to exert control through the Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, etc., but the UN probably makes it much neater for them to hide behind and be accepted by the cattle (as they supposedly refer to us as).

          Yes – I would much prefer if Max Boyce and Aled Jones ruled the world… or ‘managed’ by Chris Coleman.

          How to get to such a situation? The ‘sheeple’ won’t wake up, so it would probably have to be a battle-ready massed army of Godly men who could take the globalists all out, but I reckon only the Almighty Himself can manage the job.

          There are far too many ‘metrosexual’ dedicated followers of fashion, busy taking selfies, to bother about what’s going to happen in an hour’s time.

  8. Occam’s Razor says that we ought not to multiply possibilities beyond what is strictly necessary.
    I think the following happened:-
    (1) The Remain vote _was rigged_ , but not by enough. They thought they didn’t need to do very much to win, and decided to err on the side of safety in that the results would not be challenged as being too farcical to be real.
    (2) There was no “plan B” for Brexit, because (yes, see what I said above) they decided there’d be no point. All Bureaucrats are “intelligent and lazy”, just like the “Prussian Army recruitment Joke” says. (I’ll tell it on here sometime, if Legiron would like me to.)
    (3) Cameron made a strategic error in backing remain after getting NOTHING from the EU table. If he’d campaigned for Brexit and lost as had been planned (see above), he could have trumpeted that “The People have decided to stay in the EU, and we must respect their decision.” He’d still be master in his own house. If the Remain-margin had been even 1% in favour, he’d have “honoured that” and then anyway who can see “Leavers” demonstrating angrily and repeatedly in their thousands for a rerun or a legal challenge? We Leavers are all those people who have to work so hard that we have no time for such rubbish.
    (4) The EU Bigwigs are now privately fed up with us, and quietly wish we’d just bugger off. But they can’t say it in public. Specially as they now have a chance that May will ruin us for our sheer brass neck and temerity.
    (5) The BritishPoliticalEnemyClass, not the EU hierarchy, is the real enemy of British People. This has increasingly been the case since after WW1 when it began to take our guns away. It despises them, and thinks they probably smell and eat unhealthy food and drive cheap nasty naff cars and don’t holiday in Rock or Umbria, and just fly to Padstow or Venice for supper. The BPEC is actually far deeper in the pockets of “globalists”, whatever those might be, that even someone like Jean-claude Juncker or Donald Tusk, who most Poles regard as an A1 prat and a failed PM.
    (6) I agree that whatever the vote for Leadsom, we’ll certainly get May, and she’ll sit tight until she can’t trigger Art-50. Then Mark Carnage will reverse all the money-levers again when we’re put back in the cage.

    • Also I think the cross-hairs were on poor Jo Cox’s back the moment the referendum was declared to be a fixture. She was a globalist, very minor, slightly photogenic being a woman, had children (a shot-dead mother of little kids plays very well on the MSM) very green and refugee-loving….and entirely dispensable. This was to be the timed-substitute for very very heavy vote-rigging. I said so on facebook within 12 hours, and the Police didn’t even trouble to visit me in the small hours.

          Everyone deals with grief differently but I’d be too distraught to tweet within hours of a partner’s death, particularly if I had my hands full with two small children.
          Only have to watch Derren Brown to see how minds can be manipulated. Just thinking aloud: I wonder if it is easier to do so when someone is suffering from mental health issues and on mind altering drugs.

I’m still trying to figure out how someone whose cause of death was repeated shots to the upper torso & head with a nail gun could be ruled a suicide. I know about hesitation cuts, but hesitation shots?
