Not to alarm you on a Monday morning, but after this weekend there seems to be a lot to be an awful lot said for getting naked. Over this weekend, Economists for Free Trade have swung into action, launching their new website and releasing one paper with the Institute for Economic Affairs and another one of their own. The renowned set of economists proposes Britain undress post-Brexit by lowering its tariffs and reducing its prices by leaving the EU’s customs union. You can watch Professor Patrick Minford discuss his findings on Channel 4 News here.

The Spectator: Will UKIP survive as an anti-Islam party?

PEGIDAAnneMarieWatersEd – I have met and spoken with Anne Marie Waters, she is a thoughtful and principled woman. Some accounts of who she is and what she stands for in the media are so far off the mark you would think it was another person they were talking about. Pre-disposing the general public to dislike what she has to say is the purpose of bias and propaganda and the Mainstream media with the left liberal BBC at the helm is full of it. What are they afraid of?

In this article you can see a microcosm of Politicians and Media happily making statements based on years of media conditioning where not once are Anne Marie’s views on Islam sought. The debate is starting and it is about time. You can be better informed than the mass media by visiting www.shariawatch.org.uk.

The Spectator: Will Ukip survive as an anti-Islam party?

thespectatorWritten By, , Spectator
The decision to allow Anne Marie Waters – co-founder of anti-Islam group Pegida UK alongside former EDL leader Tommy Robinson – to stand for leadership of Ukip has created fresh fractures within a party that is preparing for its third leadership contest in a turbulent twelve months.

Restrictive Transition Period Means UK Loses Trade Opportunities

LEAVEMEANSLEAVERichard Tice & John Longworth
Co-Chairmen

The Government’s proposal for a transitional customs arrangement are more like a tunnel with only a dim light at the end, rather than a springboard to grasp future opportunities. It is not clear what lies on the other side or how long we are to be left in limbo. Britain should not be limited to just negotiating trade deals with the rest of the world during the transitional period – we must be able to implement them.

Brexit gives the UK the chance to rebalance the economy – we cannot allow Brussels to stop the UK from benefiting from the economic opportunities of Brexit.

Billions for the EU’s wars

euarmyWith billions in arms programmes at the EU and national levels, the European Union is seeking to become an operating global military power. At its last summit it agreed not only to enhance co-operation among the member states’ armed forces to facilitate their combat deployment—for example in Africa—but also to rapidly establish a “defence fund” to reallocate funds from civilian to military use.

In a few years, Brussels will already be allocating €1½ billion annually for both research and development of new military technology.

Get Britain Out: Will we ever take back control of our borders?

WE AT GET BRITAIN OUT ARE STILL FIGHTING FOR THE BEST BREXIT FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM!

By Jayne Adye, Campaign Director, and the Team at Get Britain Out, 17/08/2017

Yesterday the Government began to release its post-Brexit EU immigration policies. They have now committed to maintaining visa-free travel so EU tourists can travel to the UK with no prior checks and no need for advance visas – presumably pushing for the EU to return the favour. Not sure if this will turn out to be a great idea – we will have to see!

The Government is also supposed to be committing to a limit on the number of permits to work, study, claim any benefits, and settle in the UK for EU citizens. This is not a guarantee of meaningfully controlled immigration after March 2019, flying in the face of the vote to ‘Leave’ the European Union.

Whatever Happened To Leave.EU’s Patriotic Alliance

PatrioticAlliance2Something is not quite right in the Leave.EU campaign.

The lights are on but there is nobody home.

One of ukipessex.org’s readers, Grahame, wrote in to find out what was going on with Leave.EU’s offshoot The Patriotic Alliance. You can read the enquiry and my attempts to communicate with the Leave.EU team at the end of this email.

Along with Grahame I signed up for the The Patriotic Alliance, but since then except for a few emails asking for policy ideas nothing has happened, no progress update, no contact or campaign in formation. So I tried to find out what progress if any had been made…..Without success as of todays date

  • No contact recently from Arron Bank’s Patriotic Alliance. Website remains an un developed subscription page
  • The Leave.EU campaign phones and email are set on auto-pilot. answerphone and no response respectively.
  • The phone number given for press for Andy Wigmore goes through to a cab company
  • The website tickers on the front page have not been updated for a very long time.
  • There are only sporadic blog entries appearing

Campaign Appeal: Labour Leave Are Ringing The Brexit Alarm Bells

LabourLeave_150The Labour Leave Team, www.labourleave.org.uk

Even Christmas isn’t safe from the underhand plotting of the terminally outraged Remainers. Nick Clegg is releasing what he hopes to be a festive best seller – How to Stop Brexit. 

His new book talks of ‘resistance‘, typical of the extraordinary self regard of elite remainers. What he is attempting to do is not resist unjust rule, but overturn the biggest democratic mandate in British history.

It is the same complete reversal of reality that has recently seen talk of a new anti-Brexit party called – wait for it – The Democrats. We can only doff our caps to their brazen audacity.

Clegg and his ilk have shown they have no respect for democracy whatsoever, and the reason is very simple – they have no respect for the public whatsoever. They enjoyed the pre-Brexit world where all decisions were made by men like them, and the public had no real opportunity to influence the way the country is run.

UK Brexit position paper commits to open and invisible Irish border…

BrexitCentralBanner

Extract from BrexitCentral newsletter available at brexitcentral.com

The government has said there must be an “unprecedented solution” for the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic after Brexit. A paper detailing its proposals focuses on the need to avoid a hard border. The government stresses there should be no physical infrastructure, such as customs posts, at the border, which has almost 300 crossing points… The government’s paper does not envisage CCTV cameras or number plate recognition technology at the border, or set back from it. Instead, the government is arguing for a wide-ranging exemption under which small and medium-sized businesses will not have to comply with any new customs tariffs. – BBC News
