Paul Joseph Watson: The Truth About #Brexit

The Truth About #Brexit

Things aren’t going to plan in Briton.

Firstly, polling suggests the Brits are revolting.

Following the two polls overnight pointing to a significant lead for “leave” over “remain” in the Brexit vote, as we noted, cable tumbled and volatility premia spiked as Brexit odds surge to their highest yet. This pushed UK PM David Cameron into full panic mode, explaining that “we’re not scaremongering,” Cameron then said during an interview that Brexit would put a “bomb under our economy, and the worst thing is, we’d have lit the fuse ourselves.”

Secondly, every time Dave “we’re not scaremongering” Cameron ratchets up the Project Fear rhetoric he provokes a more determined [and more devastating] response.

Thirdly, the issue that mustn’t be mentioned [immigration] won’t go away.

“The risks of remain are massive,” Mr Johnson will say. “Not only do we hand over more than £350 million a week to the EU, but if we vote to stay the British people will be on the hook for even more cash. It is a triple whammy of woe: the eurozone is being strangled by stagnation, unemployment and a lack of growth, it could explode at any time and we will be forced to bail it out.

“The botched bureaucratic response to the migration crisis means the Eurocrats are demanding even more of our money. And now we find that there is a £20 billion black hole in the EU’s finances.”

Fourthly, the Political Class are increasingly perceived as a self-interested Pilfering Class that is simply riding the Gravy Train.

At a time when unemployment festers like a disease across Europe’s stricken labour market, there’s one class of people still doing pretty well – the politicians.

For starters, the annual pre-tax salary for an MEP is currently €96,246.36 (£78,000, $131,500). The basic salary is fixed to 38.5% of that of a judge at the European Court of Justice.

The European Parliament runs a non-contributory pension scheme, which means it pays into a pension pot but MEPs don’t have to add anything if they don’t want to. As it stands, the EU – so taxpayers – pop 3.5% of the annual salary into a pension for MEPs.

There is an extra travel allowance of up to €4,243 for trips outside of the EU on whatever official business may arise in, say, a Bahamas beach resort.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, the poor saucissons who are burdened with their electoral duties as MEPs are given a €304 a day “subsistence” allowance for when they’re on official business.

Two-thirds of a medical bill can be claimed back by MEPs from the European Parliament.

For their office costs, MEPs can claim a general allowance of €4,299 a month to fund things like phone bills and computers.

And to pay for their sty of wonks, bag-carriers and spin-doctors, MEPs can claim up to €21,209 a month for staffing costs.

Fifthly, the power of the mainstream media appears to be waning even as the BBC ramps up its “analysis” and Glorious Leader “overlays”.

  1. Tim,

    An apt corollary is the war between Elizabeth I and the Catholic Stuarts/Rome. It’s the war that has never really ceased and Brexit is the final battle.

  2. malagabay says:

    It seems that way Louis….
    And the hits just keep coming:

    A few days ago, for instance, the European Commission released details of a tax directive that will create a pan-European tax system, complete with a brand new Tax ID number for all the good citizens of Europe.

    The proposal also aims to increase taxes across the board if they feel that a member state (like Ireland) doesn’t charge enough tax.

    According to the proposal, other European countries like Ireland and Estonia “distort competition by granting favourable tax arrangements.”

    Apparently it’s not ‘fair’ that high-tax France and Belgium have to compete with low-tax Ireland and Estonia.

    So rather than the bankrupt countries getting their act together to attract business, the solution is to penalize everyone and make the entire continent less attractive.

    It’s genius!

    The directive goes on to demand more onerous reporting, attack anyone who takes legal steps to reduce what they owe, and even threaten businesses with exit taxes if they try to leave Europe.

    This really is like a return to the feudal system.

    From Roger Tallbloke’s Talkshop…

    On the economic front, there has been an interesting intervention by Jim Mellon, who published a book in 2006 warning of the impending US housing bad debt bubble burst in 2007 which precipitated the worldwide economic crash we’re still recovering from 8 years later.

  5. tempestnut says:

    John Paul Watson should stick to the emotional cry for democracy. He does it well. When he tried to give examples he descends into fantasy land as have the office leave campaign and the official remain campaign.

    The immigration problem we have is not because of the EU, but because our politian’s starting with Blair have deliberately encouraged mass immigration, most of economic migrants from outside the EU. Leaving will of itself not solve this as the free movement of Labour within the single market will remain. But being out will force our politian’s to look at things differently or they will be out. The sentiment from the people is we want out of the EU so we can make our politian’s to do what we want, rather than do what their masters in the EU want.

    Still touch and go because of the leave campaign will not explain how we leave and the steps needed to get there. It is exasperating just how ignorant our political class is.

    • malagabay says:

      My guess it’s mainly wilful ignorance because so many of them are riding the EU Gravy Train.

      The British media also seems to specialise in Mushroom Management whenever the EU Project is mentioned.

      Some commentators seem to think [and many politicians hope] Brexit is John Bull’s Last Stand.

      But if UKIP continue to flourish then every General Election is potentially a Brexit vote.

      Interesting times…

      • tempestnut says:

        “But if UKIP continue to flourish then every General Election is potentially a Brexit vote.

        Exactly. The fight will go on. Cameron is already damaged goods and Corbyn does not know what day it is and completely missed the boat. The Lib Dems have been invisible, so the sentiment in the country is for out, and the political class are in panic mode. I just wish that Farage was not such a one man band surrounding himself with yes men and pushing those who challenge him away. He can never win like that. You have to have people from all walks and of all views and be prepared to step aside when you win and say “I was the person for this job, now let other who are better qualified to run things” Unfortunately many people, rightly or wrongly, don’t trust Farage and see him as just another politian lusting for power and glory.

  6. malagabay says:

    Unfortunately many people, rightly or wrongly, don’t trust Farage
    “Trust” in the political class seems to be evaporating rapidly…

    It has been kept remarkably quiet, for instance, that the EU intends to divide the UK into eleven administrative regions, all reporting directly to Brussels.

    Although Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will remain intact as individual national regions, England will be split into eight regions.

    Worse still, the coastal counties of England will be teamed with regions in Portugal, France, the Netherlands and Germany, where they will remain in a minority role.

    Even the English Channel is to be renamed.

    Very little mention is of the EU proposal for EU-wide ID and tax numbers, likely heralding a heavy EU taxation regime.

    And a classic from RT.

    European Commission technocrats have banned the word ‘Brexit’ from official communications, instead encouraging staff to use the ominous-sounding “British situation.”
