The EU Referendum Con
The British Government is in the process of giving the British people who are also known as tax mugs, a referendum whether to stay in or out of the EU.The Prime Minister of Great Britain has made his position very clear that he is firm supporter of the EU project and intends to campaign to stay in .This is a strange statement as politicians are to represent the will of the people. The arrogance of the Prime Minister David Cameron clearly shows why Politicians are bad for democracies and even worse for the people of this country.
We live in a highly technocratic world and electing a bunch of amateurs mostly from the legal profession will not solve our problems. These well meaning know nothing, do nothing people will do us great harm. Our politicians being mainly lawyers, their main means of solving these countries problems is to pass endless legislation. The country is being legislated to death. More laws mean more lawyers, a job creating scheme for lawyers. This must stop, the tax legislation alone amounts to over 17,000 pages, and more are added every year. This has created a whole industry of lawyers and accountants, who are able to find loop holes, which enable their clients to avoid, evade or minimize their tax liability.
Now in the Mass Media you the public will be subject to an intense bombardment of lies,deceit,mis-information.It has already started with Cameron warning that if we leave the EU,there will be serious consequences.The classic technique of the fear factor is being used.
Before I lay out the shortcoming of the EU project and why it will fail, i am old enough to remember the last EU referendum to get us into the EU.It was sold as a common market where people would be able to source the cheapest and best quality goods and services, at no time did anyone tell us there would be no border controls or mass migration or it would be a political project. On the common market basis most people took a sensible option of this arrangement as being of benefit to them and voted for it.
The EU project is becoming a nightmare for many of its citizens. The idea of free flow of capital and labour and access to the benefit systems of other countries is creating huge resentment. With so much disparity between income levels of the new East European countries, it was inevitable that citizens would migrate from poorer countries of the EU to richer ones which are what has happened. Smart countries like Germany knowing of this maintained a restrictive policy of transition, of how many they would let in, since they did not want a massive influx de-stabilizing their societies.
Merry little old England did an analysis under the then labour government that only a few thousand would come. This was badly wrong, since other countries put restrictions for a number of years and those countries that did not, the UK would inevitably receive far more than they would be able to absorb in such a short period. Britain now has the highest Polish population in Europe, and Eastern Europeans in less than five years are the largest minority. Before them the Indians who have been here for over a hundred years were the largest minority.
While the debt based economy was booming there was work available. Employers found a cheap, compliant and flexible workfore.It must be said many of the migrants like other migrants are very hardworking as are many British people. It is gross insult to suggest only migrant’s work hard, if people in the UK did not work, the economy would have collapsed many years ago.
The UK is rapidly becoming a minimum wage economy and this is partly due to the EU and mass migration. The effect on our public services has been tremendous, many at breaking point, a housing shortage, and longer waiting times for hospital appointments or to see your local doctor. Despite mass migration from the EU and the rest of the world, the tax base is shrinking. Being on the minimum wage means your taxes paid are simply recycled through the benefit system.
Migration watch website have done some calculations that a person on the minimum wage with a wife and two children can claim more in benefits than their income. These perverse incentives high lights who benefits. The employer gets cheap labour, the worker gets access to the benefit system, while the rest of us you the public or tax mugs pay for this ridiculous system.
Ask yourself who benefits from arrangement, if you have free flow of capital and labour, and no restrictions, which benefits, some citizens will do well but most will not. The people who benefit from this arrangement are the large corporations. The EU is the biggest Con job in history and their intention is turn us in to debt slaves and wage slaves. In the UK and the rest of Europe young people the next generation, the most educated and articulate, their prospects are less than their parents. Youth unemployment in countries like Spain and Greece is 25% or more.
This is a double tragedy, the social capital of society is being eroded. With so much manufacturing located abroad, and automation requiring less skilled labour, there is a hollowing of the labour market, even professionals are being affected. The debt based economic model of EU countries with the exception of Germany is not sustainable.
By remaining in the EU we have locked ourselves in to death trap, a stagnant EU unable to come up with solutions that work. The recent Refugee crises has laid bare the inability of the EU to come up with a solutions to this problem, each country ignoring EU rules and reverting back to nationalist policies. The idea that 28 countries with different cultures, languages, traditions and agendas will agree on common polices that work for each country is ridiculous.
By voting to get out we will be able to control our borders, decide who, how many and quality of people we will let in just like Australia and the US does. We will trade with whoever we want and will only do so if it is in our interest. We will not lose jobs as some say; the EU does more trade with us than we do with them. As for those British residents living abroad, they will have to make a decision, take up the citizen of the country you’re living in or come back home, you decide where your future lies. This also applies to EU migrants living here, stay here and become UK citizens or go back home.
China has more trade deals with other countries than the EU has. They have their own version of the common market. In its region it has done trade deals with many countries ,like India,Pakistan,Indonesia etc.By being part of the Chinese trade block these countries are able to get goods and services at preferential rates,i.e at rock bottom prices, this means Chinese jobs are secure, unlike the EU which has become a poverty enhancement project.
So do not be taken in by all the horror stories about leaving the EU, by being an independent country we will do a lot better. The EU project will not last it is doomed it has a maximum life of 10-20 years, before it implodes. Remember most our laws are from the EU and what’s the point of electing politicians here, when they have no power to decide the future of this country.
As for young people who are worried because they like to go anywhere in the EU and have fun, you will not be disappointed. You can still go all over the EU you just need a visa as you would if you go to Australia or the US. It’s not difficult, you need to give a reason for visit and few checks, if you have a criminal record, or no income to support yourself, then you will have problems but, these are sensible measures which all countries should have, you do not want to let in undesirable people into your country.
Ignore the pro-EU propaganda and vote with your head not through the fear factor, remember the EU is a poverty enhancement project backed by big business who are the main beneficiaries able to access cheap labour, a consumer market of 500 million, pay the minimum wage and pay little or no tax by playing one country against another, a corporate con game where there is only one winner and 500 million losers.
So when the EU referendum comes vote no and let’s get our own country back and a better future.
