Once again the shameless cynicism of the British political class knows no bounds. The death of Mrs Jo Cox MP was indeed another one of those ‘beneficial crises’ which the Eurocrats love so much, appalling as it was. Short of a ‘Black Swan’ emerging from the flawed science of opinion polling, then I suspect that 50 years of Europropaganda will win the day on Thursday 23 June 2016.
For me, it is truly scary how powerful and effective that propaganda has been. With the greatest of love and respect to them, a significant proportion of my educated, professional, middle-class friends (that’s not me being a snob, it’s the reality of my peer group) appear to have made little or no effort to research and understand the reality of The Lisbon Treaty, the history and ambitions of the European Union, the history of our own nation, nor the true meaning and implications of voting Remain.
The EU Referendum isn’t about a European group hug; it’s about retaining or relinquishing a way of life that our forebears’ fought for – literally – over centuries.
In one stroke of a pen on a ballot paper on Thursday, millions of my fellow citizens will vote to cede the sovereignty, freedom and democracy of the United Kingdom to a foreign oligarchy without a shot ever having been fired. One thousand years of the history of these isles will be scrubbed within a moment. In the fullness of time, we shall come to rue the day and may once again be forced to recover our freedom and democracy by force of arms.
If, on 23 June 2016, the consensus is indeed for the UK to remain in the EU, history will show it to have been one of the blackest days in the annals of our nation. That so many people still seem to fail to comprehend this is utterly depressing.
All that said, I accept and respect the fact that my Vote Remain friends may well have taken a considered and perfectly rational decision to vote in favour of government by foreign oligarchy. Indeed, I have to believe that that’s what they’ve done, or at least they’ve concluded that by whom and how we’re governed is of virtually no significance, compared to us remaining within a declining trading bloc.
Come the weekend, we could discover that we are a nation that’s lost its backbone, entirely consistent with the objectives of the European Union project.
So, vote Remain and, on Friday, this man becomes the United Kingdom’s de facto Head of State, as indeed he has been for some time already. But, after Friday, he will revel in his role, exploit every unchecked and unbalanced power that he has – and there will be nothing that you nor I can do about it, ever …
