BoJo Sartorial Elegance

It remains to be seen whether it’s encouraging to know that Boris Johnson is supporting Brexit.  However, we shouldn’t delude ourselves as to the challenge ahead for those of us arguing the case for the restoration of the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

Why?  Well, because the European Union is an institution founded upon deceit and which to this day is controlled by unelected, politico-bureaucratic elites in the European Commission and the European Court of Justice; unaccountable elites who operate under a veil of secrecy.

The European Commission has the monopoly of proposing all EU legislation, which it does in secret.  Its ‘Regulations’ are automatically binding on all Member States which, of course, includes us here in the UK.  The European Court of Justice – which is not an independent court of law – is the engine of ‘ever closer union’ required by the Treaty of Lisbon, of which the UK is a signatory.  For as long as the UK remains a signatory to the Treaty of Lisbon we are doomed to become a vassal state of a supranational government, the United States of Europe.  Cameron and his ilk will tell you otherwise.

The challenge we now face as voters in the referendum in June is that the ‘Remain’ campaign will be, by definition, infused with deceit.  The Remain campaign will reflect the culture of its master, the European Union: an institution founded upon skulduggery and operated today entirely in its own hegemonic interests.  It will be vital, therefore, for the ‘Leave’ campaign to emphasise at every twist and turn of the debate over the coming months the extent to which virtually anything and everything emanating from the Remain camp will not necessarily be fact, but will more than likely be propaganda, or heavily skewed that way; of that we can be pretty certain, because of the very nature of the European Union.

Let’s bear in mind the words of George Orwell: ‘And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed – if all records told the same tale – then the lie passed into history and became truth.  “Who controls the past” ran the Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”’  In context, Orwell tells us that we need to be acutely conscious now of being manipulated by the European Union machine, a huge component of which comprises the British political class – itself led, ironically, by the Prime Minister of our country.  How desperately sad is that?


PS I would also ask Scottish Nationalists to think hard about what’s happening here.  You, the SNP, declare your fervent desire for independence from the United Kingdom, whilst swearing eternal allegiance to the European Union.  You need to be prepared to explain this perverse political logic to the people of Scotland, which includes me.


  1. This is an interesting video, I’m sorry if it’s a little bit of topic.

    Have look at this: where do these bankers think they’ll hide when they’ve driven us all into the dirt, or have they another plan?

    No surprise there then, back after the stay in side win I reckon. The giant fit up begins, no surprise there either.

    You’re a long way from Londonabad, up there on the beautiful Moray Firth, nevertheless, you are on the ball with the description of the €USSR and likely events these next few months. I’ve lived several years under BoJo’s reign and see you as being too generous by half. That he should be (ostensibly) supporting Brexit fills me with horror.
    One paper today had BoJo ‘leading the UK out of the EU’, in the same way as another last week had Gove doing the same.
    As if these latecomers to the party will do anything but insidiously attempt to subvert the real Brexit campaign . . . as if. Checkout Breitbart London for many comments in a similar vein.

  4. The lies, deceit and subterfuge going on globally is appalling, it’s not just Europe any more: these people want the World now.

    I’ve just found out that I need to be living in the UK to vote in the referendum on June 23rd: I’ll see what I can do.

    This is one person that has made their mind up a long time ago: no amount of lies, propaganda or any other bu*lsh*it will make me change my mind.

    I can see these evil people for what they are: power crazed dictators pretending to be altruists, philanthropists even. Vote to remain in the European Union and you’ll soon see these people in their true colours.

    (I know there’s no danger of you voting to stay in MM)

    I wish I had confidence in Boris, but I don’t. I also have a feeling that the Dave “in” and Boris “out” show was cooked up between them, and the Boris whilst having inveigled himself into the “Leave” group, will continuously report the “leave” group tactics back to Cameron.

    I’m not suer that the Former UK will EVER be permitted to vacate the EU, and that the “referendum”, however it goes, will merely be a palliative for the months and years ahead, of protracted (and futile) argument. meanwhile, hopefully, the accursed EU will smash itself asunder.

    Good article, though Moraymint – I look forward to more.

      Thanks Old Goat, and I’m preparing a much more measured exposition of the in/out debate to be posted later (am working away this week, so hiatus) …

      An interesting thesis that Boris is a fifth-columnist; I’ll believe virtually anything when it comes to matters European Union these days – such is the madness of the topic.

  6. Agree with all you write here – the watered-down slops grudgingly (and not bindingly) thrown to the Prime Minister is an illustration of the EU’s contempt for ‘subsidiarity’. Brussels has always wanted a federated Union – the UK has wanted (mainly) a relaxed membership of a local golf club; these aims are incompatible, and we should leave.

    Excellent article, thank you.

    It’s not just the skulduggery one needs to watch for, it’s the (media-assisted and unchallenged) downright lies that will do us harm. I refer to the interview on all the news channels the other day with Richard Branson who lied about how the EU has kept Europe safe since WWII, conveniently not mentioning it’s actually NATO who have done this and when the EU has become involved (e.g Ukraine) the results have been catastrophic.

    Of course Branson also forgot to say how he’s skipped the UK these days. These people will be popping up every day between now and the election to trot out Tory/EU sound bites In the hope of scaring the undecided to not be brave and hence maintain the status quo.

      Thanks John. I’m drafting a more substantial overall consideration of this debate and will post it up presently.
