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.
