Yesterday David Cameroid laid out his pro-EU stall and set things in motion for a repeat performance of the lop-sited and shamefully biased 1975 Referendum on membership of the Common Market.
If you remember during that referendum everything the EU has become was flatly denied - there was not going to be any loss of sovereignty, there was no threat of a single currency, its laws would not override UK laws, there was not going to be a European police force or European army and of course, most importantly, we voted to remain as members of what was a Common Market – we have never voted on being members of this monstrous thing called the EU. Yet, here we are today, after being stitched up in 1975, with all of those things and more we were told we were not going to get and Dave is planning to repeat history if and when we get this promised referendum, hence the importance of UKIP being there to give an honest side to the debate which is now more urgent than ever the UK gets out of the EU.
If Dave gets what he says he wants and renegotiates our terms of membership, just as Harold Wilson told us in 1975 with his then renegotiated terms, and we make the same error again and vote to stay in the EU under those new terms, it won't be long before the EU reverts to normal and what we voted for will not mean a jot. There’s masses of evidence to show just how little the EU and its fanatics care for democracy - look at the 'No' vote on the Nice Treaty in Ireland, or the votes against the EU constitution in France and Holland, which was ignored with the Lisbon Treaty which is exactly the same as the EU constitution - does anyone think the EU will have any regard for the outcome of a referendum in the UK? After the furore the EU will soon return to its power grabbing life as normal.
Once the pro-EU fanatics have frightened the people of the UK with all their scare stories of wars in Europe, millions of jobs lost and with the UK marginalised and alone in the world if we leave, the electorate will, in their ignorance, vote to stay in under the new terms and the UK as a nation will be finished for all time. It will not matter who governs then as the EU will be in full control.
In Dave Cameroid’s speech there more if’s than a sewer full of the if’s in whiffs. If he is re-elected (which he won’t be), if and when the time is right, if he gets the deal he wants and so on. The one if he did not mention was the; if he does not break yet another promise as he is inclined to do.
In 1975 we got it wrong, we believed our pro-Common Market politicians and now we are facing a repeat performance – this time we have to get it right and vote for out of the EU despite Cameron’s false promises. The UKIP message is the only option for me, we have to ignore the siren voices and scare stories and remain focussed on the goal of full withdrawal from the EU - anything else will bring disaster. Forget Dave’s iffy speech and vote for out of the EU.
