    Let Every Brit Vote – That’s Democracy! 


    The risk of a second referendum –

    ‘Keep voting till you vote the way the political elite require!’

    voted

    ….continues to loom larger and larger.

    Two of Theresa May’s most senior allies are preparing for a second EU referendum behind her back…David Lidington — May’s deputy in all but name — held talks with Labour MPs on Thursday in an effort to build a cross-party coalition for a new vote…Gavin Barwell, the No 10 chief of staff, told a cabinet minister last week that holding a second referendum was “the only way forward…”   https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/theresa-mays-team-plots-new-eu-referendum-cl5xrwh52

    We must prepare.

    I missed a bit of important news last month, but so did most of the bigger media.

    referndmlet peole vote

    By this, I mean the issue of British people being denied the right to vote. You’d think that such a denial would be front-page news, but not so, hence I must give the far-left Guardian a rare pat on the back.

    Committee Debate: 4th sitting: House of Commons 14 November, 2018 (1) (2) |

    When the Brexit referendum was held, it was billed as an historic opportunity to let all British people make a choice between independence or continued subjugation to the EUSSR.

    But a million or more Brits living overseas got no such chance, thanks to a previous Labour Government deliberately taking their right to vote away, if they had been resident abroad for 15 years or more.

    Now a Conservative MP is pushing for reform, but Labour is resisting, although last month the bill was debated and it is going to reach its support stage next month.

    • Report stage: House of CommonsReport stage: House of Commons | 25.01.2019

    https://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/overseaselectors.html

    I know some people say that this reform would be detrimental to the Brexit cause, due to a number of UK expats on the Continent voting on perceived self-interest rather than patriotic principle.

    That may be, although

    A – many Brits resident in Europe are surely not that self-centred, and

    B – there are many more in distant lands around the world who would put their country first no matter where they live.

    Yet in fairness to democratic fundamentals, ALL UK citizens should have the right to determine the destiny of their nation.

    If you have not contacted your MP,  or your former MP, if you are one of those affected, then you should do so. before the Report Stage, specified above.

      You are very fair-minded, after all the quisling noise we have heard from UK citizens resident on the Continent. Many of them seem to have gone native.
      Despite their choice to side with their own country’s oppressors in Brussels, if they are British, they ought, like us expats in Asia and Australia, to be allowed the right to vote.

      Labour is quite agreeable to giving those Eire enemy aliens a vote in British referendums, so how can they justify denying genuinely British people that right just because we have lived abroad for years?
      HM Inland Revenue keeps sending us tax return forms, after all.
      No taxation without representation!

      That Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, who is completely unfit for the job, has now started mixing into politics again, warning us against a clean break, which is a much better way to describe what she calls a no-deal.
      I can just picture her compiling a list of ‘Brexit-Crimes.’
      She can add europhobia to her list of arrestable offences. She loves the political police role.

    …Hungary shows welcome realism!

    …additional provisions make it impossible for anyone to claim asylum in Hungary if they passed through a country deemed safe prior to their arrival.

    ——

    Hungary’s admirable endeavours will without a doubt bring down EUSSR fury on the brave but small nation, and while Poland may well have Orban’s back, otherwise the Magyars will face the foe alone.

    Theresa May could preempt that problem right now with a short sharp speech announcing that the UK won’t endorse ANY punitive measures against Hungary, and if the Juncker clique does push such measures through, the UK will defy them.

    Oh, and the same should go for Poland.

    SPIN-OFF BENEFIT?

    If the British voice and vote in the months to come creates havoc for the malign leadership of the Evil Empire…

      Obviously she should have her Home Secretary ban Soros, who is much more dangerous to this country than those young rightwingers that were banned from the UK a few months ago.
      That last little bit of what you have written here has got me interested.
      Why has May never used this very powerful bargaining chip against our enemies in Brussels during all these shadow-boxing negotiations?
      It’s not just the Hungary issue but a whole range of things that one big country making trouble could derail or at least delay.

    Gutless Gove’s ‘Disappointment?’ Very Fishy! 


    The EU is prepared to allow the UK a say in the negotiations on setting the allowable catch for the EU fleet even after the formal departure date of 29 March 2019.

    Mr Gove said the government had pressed for the UK to be an equal partner in fishing negotiations during the 21-month “implementation period” – but the EU had blocked this.

    What a wet!

     Has the Royal Navy been dismantled?

    “We were disappointed the EU would not move on this,” he told MPs, saying that the UK only had to wait a further year for complete control of its waters.

    Why the HELL should British fishermen wait a year to get their rightful haul of British fish?

    “It’s important that all of us, in every area, accept that the implementation period is a necessary step towards securing that prize.

    It is NOT ‘necessary’ – if Gove had any guts at all he would declare parliamentary war on Theresa The Appeaser and tell her to immediately authorise measures to stop and detain any continental fishing boats caught stealing fish within UK territorial waters.

    Effective naval operations were undertaken in the famous ‘Cod Wars’ with Iceland in the Sixties and Seventies.

    The Tory Brexiteers should be excoriating her treachery, not least Gove, who was a prominent figure in the Leave campaign.

    NB Team Brexit! Brussels’ Swiss Lackeys War Down Democracy! 


    I try not to write at immense length, although if you go back to my early blogging days, you’ll see I used to succumb frequently to that temptation.

    ====

    However, this article from Spiked.com will give you a good Sunday morning read, which many Brits, if I remember right, DO enjoy very much, in between munching on buttery toast and slurps of coffee.

    ANDREA SEAMAN EUROPE
    Even in Switzerland, the EU erodes democracy
    How Swiss leaders use the EU to weaken popular sovereignty.

    It’s common for Brexiteers to single out Switzerland as the most democratic country in Europe…

    ……

    ……..

    …and how the UK could learn from its position vis-a-vis the EUSSR.

    But that Swiss democracy would be overnight erased  were it ever foolish enough to  surrender its sovereignty to the Brussels Evil Empire.

    And worse, by legislative pandering to the Euro-Commissars, the parliament in Berne is selling out their nation’s heritage of self-determination.

    =

    Liar Juncker was actually telling the truth when he warned EUSSR-ruled nation-states not to think for one moment that they had any right to determine their own futures.

      It’s so wrong how these cheap politicians are prepared to give up Switzerland’s freedoms.
      A lot of our states have direct democracy-referendum systems and citizen initiatives too, but the American courts have taken aim at democratic control and told us very loudly that they are not on the side of the American people.

      The Founding Fathers would turn in their graves over the way the Supreme Court imposed ‘gay’ marriage. That ruling showed us all how fragile our democracy is.

      We can only hope and pray that Donald Trump gets the chance to replace a few more of the worst judges there. .

    Pin-Head Pants-Down! A Racist Slur On Ulster Brits 


    Paddy Pants-Down was always something of a dork, as we have noted before.

    =

    =

    Paddy Pants-Down Rides Again, Enraged By Democracy! 

    But his latest racist slur against to Ulstermen –“you never let the Ulstermen get their hands on the nation” –  which, in this egalitarian day and age, insults Ulsterwomen too – has provoked stern rebukes from patriots there.

    ==========

    =

    Not least TUV’s Jim Alister.

    “I found it deeply insulting, indeed I found it racist. To pick out people on the basis of cultural identity and say because you are an Ulsterman you can’t be in government is outrageous.

    Too true.

    Imagine if somebody said that about British politicians of Scots, or Welsh origins?

    Lloyd George, Alec Hume, Gordon Brown…all would be excluded if the ‘Pants-Down Principle’ were made law. Maybe the UK could have been better without their ministerial ministrations, but that’s NOT the point.

    To brand the best and most loyal British as unfit to hold the reins of government responsibility is GROSSLY offensive.

    Jim’s entirely justified indignation was echoed by Ulster Unionist chief whip Steve Aiken:

    “Paddy Ashdown’s comments were offensive, crass, and totally hypocritical..

    .http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/uk/dup-talks-ashdown-pilloried-for-sectarian-danger-warning-35823341.html

    Jim concluded his denunciation by saying that the effort to put together an arrangement supported by a majority of MPs was the constitutional way to do things.

    “It’s called democracy!”

    But then Pants-Down detests democracy.

    ..the peer and former Liberal Dem leader  – branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.                                            http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/749212/PaddyAshdown-Brexit-1930s-Adolf-Hitler

     

    One must assume the fifty-plus percent of the electorate who dared disagree with the Liberal Democrat dork are thereby relegated, along with Ulsterfolk, to the ranks of those not entitled to participate in the governance of their country?

      Ashdown is a waste of space. He should be told to shut up but he’s nothing compared to Corbyn.
      Did you see that skunk weep at the mosque in Finsbury Park?
      Corbyn is rotten to the core, I would say in his soul but the man has no soul or if he once had he sold it to the devil..
      How many times did he ever shed even one tiny wee tear for the victims of his IRA heroes?
      He needs to be prevented from ever getting near the doors of 19 Downing Street..
