Pete North Politics Blog : Brexit the Movie - as crap as we expected (12th May 2016)
The lack of a Brexit plan in the public eye means we're fighting a losing battle for economic credibility

__________________________________________

Pete North Politics Blog : Yes, Mr Osborne. You'll have to do your jobs. (12th May 2016)
They will have to get to grips with serious issues and behave like adults. And they are going to have to account for themselves when they get it wrong. So yes Mr Osborne. You and your ilk are going to have to do your jobs. That's what you're all afraid of, isn't it?

__________________________________________

The Brexit Door :What is the Single Market? (12th May 2016)

. . . the common position that all EU states must take on international bodies as mandated by Article 34 TEU, does not apply to the EEA agreement – so the EFTA states may take their own line in international affairs, at the WTO and other global regulatory bodies

__________________________________________

The Brexit Door : The Dynamics of Parliament (12th May 2016)

This of course should lead to one conclusion – the first stage negotiating principle will most likely be one for EEA retention via EFTA

__________________________________________

Pete North Politics Blog : Choose life. Choose Brexit. (11th May 2016)

To put it in the most basic terms, a sudden withdrawal and cancellation of all EU cooperation would be suicidal

__________________________________________

Pete North Politics Blog : The remain camp are in deep denial (11th May 2016)

. . . each time the EU refrain is that things would work better if only more power were in the hands of the few. Tyrants have always said this. And yet strangely we continue to believe them

__________________________________________

Red Cliffs of Dawlish : EU History: Destructive Emotions & Creative Thinking (11th May 2016)

. . . the widely held belief about the EU is itself a Myth taking the form of a "Creation Story" and that story is not factually/historically accurate

__________________________________________

ME Synon Blog : Michael Gove and Boris Johnson: dumb and dumber (11th May 2016)

EU law on human rights, deportation, asylum, the rights of the child, and the adjudication of the European Court of Justice, does not reach into EEA-EFTA countries. And not just into these areas. The EEA-EFTA countries are not bound by the ECJ in any way at all.

EUReferendum.com : Flexcit the Movie: The Plan – Part 3 (11th May 2016)

Progressively, therefore, we expect to see the EU's book of rules become less and less important in our trading arrangements

__________________________________________

EUReferendum.com : Flexcit the Movie: The Plan – Part 2 (10th May 2016)

. . . over the last few days, we have seen from Michael Gove on the Marr Show, and from Matthew Elliott in his oral evidence to the Treasury Select Committee, some extraordinarily muddy thinking about the nature of the Single Market

__________________________________________

EUReferendum.com : Flexcit the Movie: The Plan - Part 1 (10th May 2016)

To win them over, said the Telegraph, "leave" has to show that a prosperous alternative is possible. "They need to turn an intellectual proposition into a coherent, detailed plan".

__________________________________________

White Wednesday(Roland Smith) : EU Referendum: Read the question! (10th May 2016)

To be utterly clear about this, the question is not: “Do you wish the United Kingdom to remain a party to EU/EEA free movement or to leave EU/EEA free movement?”

__________________________________________

Red Cliffs of Dawlish : Bringing More People Into the Referendum (10th May 2016)

In terms of The Great Deception, it is so important because it creates a coherent system of thinking about the EU from an historically accurate context to subsequent future behaviour by the EU and it's advocates

EUReferendum.com : Flexcit the Movie: Introduction by Christopher Booker (9th May 2016)

This is the first of five parts. The main presentation comes next, split into three parts, which we will show respectively on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then, on Friday, we will have the separate Q&A session

__________________________________________


______________________________________

Christopher Booker : EU is paymaster for pro-Remain 'green’ charities  (4th June)

There is no way a Brexit could produce a more damaging outcome for nature than the kind we too often see from that collaboration between greenies and Brussels

______________________________________

Simon Heffer : The migration question that can’t be answered  (4th June 2016)

The EU had the chance to offer a limit on immigration within its borders during the “renegotiation”, and it refused

______________________________________

Janet Daley : Johnson and Gove have an exciting chance to shift the axis of politics  (4th June 2016)

Exit from the EU would offer a kind of national renewal: a chance to embed those values of self-reliance and resourcefulness into a political culture suited to a modern independent state

______________________________________

Michael Deacon : ‘It’s Project Lies!’ Michael Gove takes on the audience – and the experts  (3rd June 2016)

It’s always said that Mr Gove and Mr Cameron have always been, and will always remain, close friends. Tonight, Mr Gove described Mr Cameron’s performance on Sky News as “depressing”.

______________________________________

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard : Leave camp must accept that Norway model is the only safe way to exit EU  (2nd June 2016)

The Leave campaign is in effect lying about the Norwegian imperative because it dare not admit that EU migrants will continue coming to work in a post-Brexit Britain; and this in turn allows the Remain campaign to air its lies on economic Armageddon.

______________________________________

Allister Heath : There is no safety inside the arrogant, imperial, and dangerously unstable EU (1st June 2016)

When I was growing up in France, it was always clear that the EU was a political project that used economics as a tool of state-building

______________________________________

Norman Tebbit : Every day the EU further threatens our sovereignty – and David Cameron cannot stop it (30th May 2016)

Our masters in Brussels feel that mere legalities should not be allowed to obstruct the path to the European Republic

______________________________________

Boris Johnson : The only continent with weaker economic growth than Europe is Antarctica (29th May 2016)

We are in the throes of the fastest demographic change for 1,000 years

______________________________________

Christopher Booker : Vote Leave is handing victory to Project Fear (28th May 2016)

The unique advantage of the 'Norway option' is that it could provide an off-the-shelf means to neutralise all of 'Project Fear’s' catalogue of horrors

______________________________________

Simon Heffer : When – if ever – will the real David Cameron stand up?  (28th May 2016)

The scaremongering, according to a poll last week, has reduced public trust in Mr Cameron on Europe to a mere 18 per cent

______________________________________

Liam Halligan : Italy’s broken banks show the dangers behind the euro (28th May 2016)

The single currency is a powder-keg. It represents probably the largest systemic danger to global financial markets on earth

______________________________________

Colonel Richard Kemp : It is an EU army that could bring about war (27th May 2016)

An EU command structure, fraught with divergent and opposing policy agendas, will turn paralysis into rigor mortis

______________________________________

James Delingpole : G7 Leaders: Vote Brexit And The World Will End (27th May 2016)

. . . the more hysterical and dishonest Project Fear gets the better it will be for Brexit.

______________________________________

Allister Heath : Start-up Britain will thrive out of the EU  (27th May 2016)

The pro-Brexit case must therefore have at its heart a vision of a far more entrepreneurial Britain

______________________________________

Charles Moore : The Leave campaign has failed to allay the anxieties of Mr and Mrs Prudence (27th May 2016)

If you prefer the adventure of uncertainty over the dull predictability of expert-delivered diktats, vote Leave

______________________________________

Fraser Nelson : Europe's voters are getting angry. Leaders should listen to them instead of sneering (26th May 2016)

The way to thwart such insurgents is to respond to the legitimate concerns of their voters. This is the British way

______________________________________

Richard Littlejohn : Will their vile skinhead poster tip the see-saw against Remain? Take notice of this patronising, manipulative and scary advert... and then Vote Leave (26th May 2016)
. . . the clear, not even subliminal or subtle, implication is that those who want to get out of the EU are all knuckle-scraping BNP boot-boys brimming with hatred for non-whites

______________________________________

Laura Hughes : David Cameron would back Brexit if he wasn't Prime Minister, claims former strategy guru  (26th May 2016)

British people hate to be told what to do by the European elite

______________________________________

Asa Bennett : Eurosceptics are popular with voters across Europe. That's why Brussels wants to destroy them (26th May 2016)

Anyone who doesn't want the European Blob to gobble up more power and member states is deemed a dangerous populist that must be stopped

______________________________________

Allister Heath : Brexit will make us richer. That's why Leave could still win (25th May 2016)

The economic case for Brexit is remarkably strong. If Brexiteers want to reassure floating middle-class voters, it will need to be made again and again

______________________________________

Andrew Lilico : Why leaving the EU could actually be to our economic advantage (25th May 2016)

We should not be deterred from Brexit by stories of large negative impacts of Brexit that assume away all the economic benefits

______________________________________

Tim Cross : Stiffen your sinews and Vote Leave - Brexit will make Britain great again  (25th May 2016)

The economic case for Brexit is remarkably strong. If Brexiteers want to reassure floating middle-class voters, it will need to be made again and again

______________________________________

Allison Pearson : No wonder women back Brexit - mums know best  (24th May 2016)

Forget the men trying to scare us with dodgy economics. Mother knows best.

______________________________________

Asa Bennett : Brexiteers' lack of a plan is their greatest weakness, and George Osborne is exploiting it mercilessly  (24th May 2016)

The Leave campaign dwindles, having failed to quell ongoing concerns about the financial and economic consequences of a Brexit

______________________________________

Michael Deacon : David Cameron and George Osborne made a joke about Brexit... and it didn’t go down very well (23rd May 2016)

Silence. Total silence. Not so much as a titter. Even after the third telling

______________________________________

James Delingpole : Britain MUST Leave The EU Says David Cameron’s Strategy Guru Steve Hilton (23rd May 2016)

They know it is inefficient, democratically unaccountable, corrupt, bureaucratic, anti-market, arrogant, obdurate and hubristic – yet still they persist in claiming that Britain is better off remaining part of it

______________________________________

Samuel Hooper : The Narrowing Path To Victory For Brexit Supporters (22nd May 2016)

A big external shock or a rising tide of anti-establishment rage are now the only remaining paths to victory for the poorly-led Brexit campaign

______________________________________

Boris Johnson : Future Britons will find it hard to believe that anyone voted to stay in the EU (22nd May 2016)

The Brexit vote was followed by a powerful campaign for reform in Europe, and a widespread euphoria that at least one population had plucked up the courage to say that the emperor had no clothes

______________________________________

Tim Ross : Trade wars: memo shows EU is costing UK billions (21st May 2016)

The raw truth is that the EU hates genuinely free trade. That holds Britain back, costs us jobs, and keeps prices on the high street artificially high

______________________________________

Simon Heffer : David Cameron's disgraceful dishonesty over the EU is turning Britain into a banana republic (21st May 2016)

People say they want “facts” before deciding how to vote next month, so here’s one to mull over. The EU is a profoundly anti-democratic institution.

______________________________________

James Bartholomew : The EU has destroyed some of our most prosperous industries - and will continue to do so  (21st May 2016)

Did the EU deliberately set out to hurt our auction industry?

______________________________________

James Delingpole : Finally, The Wankerati Tell Us Which Way To Vote In The EU Referendum… (20thMay 2016)

But I can’t help noticing that Shakespeare actually predates the invention of the European superstate

______________________________________

Allison Pearson : Cumberbatch's artistic spirit should be rebelling against EU bureaucracy (20th May 2016)

But what are the 282 signatories actually extolling here? Surely not the actual functioning, or dysfunctioning, EU, which is elitist, white, male, dictatorial and hideously bureaucratic

______________________________________

Charles Moore : With its future assured, the BBC is now happy to toe David Cameron's EU line (20th May 2016)

. . . it is simply untrue that a Leave vote on June 23 necessarily involves an immediate two-year negotiation, after which, without a trade deal, no European will buy our goods and services

______________________________________

Richard Littlejohn : Government by gimmick: Driverless cars! A space port in Cornwall! The pie-in-the-sky policies of a Prime Minister paralysed by Brexit (18th May 2016)

This is pie-in-the-sky politics, displacement activity from a Government which is paralysed by the Brexit referendum and doesn’t have a clue what to do about the genuine problems facing the country

______________________________________

Allister Heath : Economists have a century of failure behind them. No wonder they back Remain now (18th May 2016)

Time and time again, the majority of economists make spectacularly wrong calls, and it is a small, despised minority that gets it right

______________________________________

Matthew Holehouse : EU delays deficits sanctions on Spanish and Portugal until after election (17th May 2016)

. . . the European Commission announced it would delay a decision to impose sanctions until after the Spanish elections

______________________________________

Lynton Crosby : EU referendum: 51 per cent back Remain as Sir Lynton Crosby warns Leave camp must focus more on voters and less on infighting (17th May 2016)

. . . the Leave campaign should spend less time arguing about whether Nigel Farage should have a TV platform and more time finding and delivering a clearer and simpler message in support of their case.

______________________________________

Allison Pearson : Angelina Jolie-Pitt should open her doors to refugees - or shut up  (17th May 2016)

The star dares to accuse us of taking a “hardline on immigration” when both she and her children are completely immune from its consequences

______________________________________

Michael Deacon : Hitler for Remain, Isil for Brexit... can the EU debate sink any lower? (17th May 2016)

. . . there’s still another five weeks to go. Where the two sides will go from here, we can only speculate

______________________________________

Tom Harris : The sinister John McDonnell is trying to sink the Remain campaign – good luck to him (17th May 2016)

. . . this transformation into a calm, moderate, sensible voice of reason is entirely believable. If you're an idiot

______________________________________

Richard Littlejohn : Balls and Cable? Osborne really is scraping the barrel: The electorate kicked them out in 2015, so why does the Chancellor think voters will take any notice of what they say about the EU? (17th May 2016)
Frankly, I found it difficult to suppress a belly laugh when I switched on Sky News to see Osborne, Cable and Balls striding towards the microphone like a low-budget remake of Reservoir Dogs.

______________________________________

Michael Deacon : Ed Balls and Vince Cable, reading out George Osborne’s soundbites. Is this a hostage situation? (16th May 2016)

Either the two really are fanatical about EU membership, or this was a hostage situation.

______________________________________

Toby Young  : The BBC's focus on immigration was a whole day of anti-Brexit propaganda (16th May 2016)

If you were looking for impartiality, you’d come to the wrong place. The entire day was like a 24-hour political broadcast for the Remain campaign

______________________________________

James Delingpole : Britain Really Could Vote to Leave the EU, Brexit The Movie Explains Why (15th May 2016)

We just need to regain our optimism, our self-confidence and get over all that self-loathing in which the English intellectual class has so long specialised

______________________________________

Simon Heffer : The Fourth Reich is here - without a shot being fired (15th May 2016)

It was not just deeply offensive, but ironic, that Mr Cameron should last week have evoked the idea of another world war in his latest intelligence-insulting act of hysteria aimed at making us vote to stay in the EU

______________________________________

Boris Johnson : Of course our City fat cats love the EU – it’s why they earn so much (15th May 2016)

If you want to back the entrepreneurs, the grafters, the workers, the innovators, the burgeoning and dynamic businesses of Britain – then Vote Leave on June 23, and give this cabal the kick in the pants they deserve

______________________________________

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard : IMF meddling on Brexit is scandalous skulduggery  (13th May 2016)

There may be compelling reasons for Britain to remain in the EU, but they have nothing to do with the bogus claims advanced today by the IMF

______________________________________

Tim Congdon : Valuing The EU (13th May 2016)

No theory proposes that the value of a currency depends on the nation’s loneliness, its geographical location or its abstention from this or that international organisation

______________________________________

James Delingpole : Brexit: Mark Carney can **** right off back to Canada (13th May 2016)

Just like the global warming scam, the Remain campaign is very heavily reliant on the “appeal to authority” of “expert” figures such as Carney

______________________________________

Charles Moore : Of course Mark Carney backs Remain – the EU will always benefit people like him (13th May 2016)

In domestic politics just now, almost the entire government programme is being bartered for a Remain vote

______________________________________

Tim Stanley : The graph that shows immigration could decide the EU referendum (13th May 2016)

Governments have long tacitly accepted high immigration because it boosts productivity and tax income

______________________________________

Allister Heath : Remainers are moving heaven and earth – but not the polls (11th May 2016)

The global establishment has gone nuclear but, astonishingly, it’s still all to play for.

______________________________________

Richard Littlejohn : Beware the invasion of the toxic caterpillars! David Cameron's absurd Brexit scare stories are insulting the intelligence of voters (10th May 2016)

The risible ramping-up of the scare stories is a sign of his increasing desperation

______________________________________

James Delingpole : Cameron’s Latest Desperate Threat: Vote Remain Or Get World War III (9th May 2016)

. . . it really is given to very, very few sentient creatures to be able to stand up on a stage and lie quite so blatantly with quite such pink-cheeked confidence and authority as our Dave

______________________________________

Charles Moore : Scotland has voted No to a second referendum (9th May 2016)

Since Leave supporters believe in the United Kingdom, it seemed too risky to some to vote to give the Scots this incentive for break-up.  Now that risk has evaporated.

______________________________________

Christopher Booker : Farmers fall victim to the maddest EU subsidy shambles of them all (7th May 2016)

One of the most bizarre examples of public maladministration this country has ever known, has now taken on an even more outrageous twist

______________________________________

Charles Moore : Turkey's President Erdogan is not a nice man. We should resist him rather than pander to him (7th May 2016)

The position the EU has granted him gives him the power to turn on and off the tap of Syrian refugees to Europe when he feels like it

______________________________________

Christopher Booker : Brexiteers! We need an exit strategy and we need it now!  (1st May 2016)

But even more terrifying is the quite deliberate refusal of the Leave campaigners to come up with a convincing and coherent exit plan which could reassure voters that, by leaving the EU we would not be excluded from the European Economic Area, allowing us to continue trading in the single market just as we do now

______________________________________

Charles Moore : The EU’s defenders are clinging to something that is weakening (1st May 2016)

The EU’s defenders are clinging to something that is weakening: those who want to leave are reaching out for something better. That is the exact opposite of 40 years ago
