As the dust settles from the most electrifying election in recent history, we are now on the final stretch towards an In/Our referendum, possibly as early as May next year. This election ended with a firm Conservative majority, 99 seats ahead of Labour, and UKIP winning the third largest share of the vote. By denying Labour many seats in its northern heartlands, UKIP confirmed Euroscepticism is a high priority for the 'left behind' working-class voters who’ve been betrayed by Labour’s blind support of Brussels.
Brussels has been busy causing trouble again: the EU Parliament provoked fury by blocking moves to reveal how they spend their expenses! This perpetrates a fraud against British taxpayers who fund their so-called “office expenses”, which MEPs are totally free to spend how they like. We are quoted in the Daily Express: “It’s high time the great British public upended the trough these Europhile politicians all seem to have their snouts in, by voting to get Britain out of the EU.”
The Daily Express reported newly released figures by the Office of National Statistics which showed Britain is trading less with Europe, and more with emerging economies around the globe, especially our Anglosphere partners. This confirms a long-running trend: the EU’s declining importance to world trade, and its increasing irrelevance as Britain’s trading partner. These findings conclusively prove Britain can flourish on the global stage, outside the sandbox of Europe.
After the election, it is clear the Great British Public is increasingly Eurosceptic. The results shattered the Europhile Liberal Democrat party, leaving them with just 8 MPs in Parliament. As we discuss in our piece in The Commentator, Nick Clegg got exactly what he deserved for reneging on his 2008 promise of an In / Out EU Referendum.
However the illiberal undemocratic “Lib Dems” were not the only ones losing out due to a surge in Euroscepticism. A flocking of former Labour voters to UKIP cost the Labour Party dozens of seats, including Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls’ seat of Morley. In our latest article for The Commentator we point out the Shadow Cabinet was evenly split on whether or not to hold a referendum. Had Moribund Miliband not over-ruled his colleagues, the election result could have been very different!
Unfortunately for England, the Nationalist parties in Scotland and Wales also did well. What we must remember, as we discuss in The Commentator, these parties do not want independence. They want a nominally independent Scotland and Wales inside the EU. We can only hope the inherent contradiction in the SNP’s vision of “independence” is exposed over the next few years.
It is now open season for the CBI to peddle their falsehoods about Britain leaving the EU. Sir Michael Rake was on BBC News on Wednesday, saying leaving the EU will mean Britain won’t have access to the EU Single Market. Our campaign responded quickly in a blog published in Breitbart London, refuting his fallacies, and highlighting the extensive taxpayer and EU funding the CBI receives.
Our campaign gets flooded with messages from our supporters, many repeating the myth the EU is able to veto Britain's exit from the EU due to the Lisbon Treaty. It is not surprising people are cynical about the EU and whether it might respect an Out vote by Britain in a referendum. However, it is just a myth the Lisbon Treaty would prevent us from Brexit. Read our blog and be rest assured: we can leave the EU - and should.
Now we are on the final stretch before the Great British Public can vote in the first referendum on Europe in 40 years. Our campaign will keep articulating why staying inside the only declining trading-bloc on the planet, will be a death sentence for Britain. As the fourth largest economy in the world, the fourth largest exporter and fourth largest importer, Britain is already the most globalised country in the world. We don’t need to be a satellite state of Brussels. It will be a hard contest, but I urge you all to get ready to Get Britain Out of the EU.
ONWARDS AND OUTWARDS
With best wishes,
Get Britain Out
