Ed – The boys and girls at Labour Leave have a huge task ahead of them which only they are in a position to do, influence their fellow Labour supporters about the huge damage the EU has done:
in keeping wages down
passing Brits jobs over to mass illegal and legal immigration
and how the EU elitist corporatocracy intends to subjugate the British workers under ‘deals’ like the detested Transatlantic Trade And Investment Partnership (TTIP)
Establishing anti-democratic rule by dictate from Brussels euphemisticaly called the Democratic Deficit
The elimination of democracy by treaty is the plan
From: John Mills, Chair, Labour Leave Today is the 1st anniversary of the referendum, an historic vote that we still hope will permanently change British politics. We just want to thank you for supporting Labour Leave over the past year and more.
We genuinely think Labour Leave made the critical key difference to the referendum result, helping many Labour supporters know that there were strong traditional Labour voices advocating for our democracy by disengaging from the European Union and charting our own future as a self-governing, independent nation-state.
As Brexit Negotiations Begin, Happy Independence Day!
Against all the odds – the full force of the EU machine, the Westminster bubble, a tide of big banks, naive celebrities and against foreign rulers – we built a Leave movement and we got our country back on this day last year. Happy Independence Day!
The British General Election on June 8th this year saw the Conservatives take the most votes and the most seats, but fall just short of a majority, as explored in our special election roundup last week. Unfortunately, the election also rallied Tory Europhiles – including Chancellor Philip Hammond – who still try and conspire to water down Brexit. They want to throw out the possibility of no deal, leaving us vulnerable to having to accept a bad one. Some in Labour are scheming with the SNP too, to attach wrecking amendments to the Great Repeal Bill, potentially forcing a second referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal. Continue reading →
Your Essential Brexit Briefing Saturday, 24th June 2017
The response is in to Theresa May’s ‘big, generous offer’ on EU citizens’ rights. made at the European Council meeting in Brussels. Instead of granting British expats in Europe the same offer, Donald Tusk, the President of the Council, said it was ‘below expectations’ and demanded a continuing role for the European Court of Justice in an independent Britain.
Jean-Claude Juncker agrees.
Whilst summit attendees tucked into macerated cherries and almond milk ice cream, Theresa May was permitted to speak for a few short minutes. EU leaders reportedly chewed their dessert in silence. The Express headline this morning, May stands up to EU bullies, just about sums it up.
Express Headline: BREAKING: Tusk and Juncker REJECT May’s EU migrants plan in bid to make Brexit impossible
BRUSSELS chief Donald Tusk this afternoon launched an extraordinary attack on Theresa May’s approach to Brexit, telling the prime minister her stance on citizens’ rights is creating a “worsening situation”.

While the debate about a common EU army continues in Brussels, such a force is being incrementally put in place, in a good example of EU “competence creep” But Germanyڈs recent defence white paper revealed its own ambition to lead a pan-European force. “German security policy has relevance— also far beyond our country,” the paper states “Germany is willing to join early, decisively and substantially as a driving force in international debates ; to take responsibility and assumE leadership.
The paper argues that the EU’s arms industry is at present “organised nationally and seriously fragmented,”raising costs, preventing it from competing internationally, and making it difficult to mount joint operationsڅ“It is therefore necessary,”the paper states, “that military capabilities are jointly planned, developed, managed, procured and deployed to raise the interoperability of Europe’s defence forces and to further improve Europe’s capacity to act”
At the EU level, Germany’s ministry of defence wants to see joint civil-military headquarters for EU operations, a council of defence ministers, and the co-ordinated production and sharing of military equipment. The thrust of the paper displays a new-found confidence in German defence policy, and a new drive to take the lead on military matters within Europe.
This issue of People’s News has an unusual number of articles on military matters, and regular readers will have noticed that over the past few months these types of articles have steadily increased in number. This reflects the alarmingly rapid development of an EU army and its support mechanisms. It is a development about which there is very little awareness in Ireland, and one that may have serious implications for us all.

Ed – The principle that everyone pays taxes, according to their ability, to build a fair and civilised society is a just and good one. One worth fighting for. It is not about sticking it to the rich, it is about fairness. Allowing the talented to enjoy the fruits of their labour at the same time protecting the vulnerable and the weak. The Tax Justice Network is going from strength to strength, I can see why…
In our June 2017 Taxcast we ask – has the UK just had its first tax justice general election? Why was economic debate around the election so ill-informed? Are we seeing a popular shift towards tax justice in the UK and in the USA? Is this the beginning of the end of our long austerity winter? How much do people REALLY care about taxes, who pays them and who doesn’t?
If it wasn’t obvious before it is becoming so now. The German and French elites are determined to assert hegemonic power over ALL European states through the EU Commission proxy. Any opposition to their polices, put into action by anti-democratic, unaccountable Juncker, is cause for threats, intimidation and punishment.
Frankfurt and Paris are salivating over British trade and carving it up between them, Liberte, egalite, fraternite my ar$e more like lip-service, carvery and robbery. This is their big chance to put us down and they are going for it.
Its time for Brits to pull together, think very hard about our purchasing habits and ensure British jobs for British workers by demanding shops stock and sell British manufactured products.
Well the British Parliament is still standing and about to regain its sovereignty once more. If it can there is a good chance we will be able to protect our democracy and trade. Unlike the rest under the Franco-German elite’s heel.
In this story Macron is dictating to the Eastern Europeans what they may and may not think. Macron should be reminded such words were uttered by these countries Soviet masters in the recent past. They have been forced to listen to dictators before and they know what they look and sound like. You, Juncker and Mrs Merkel are going to need an army to put them down Mr Macron. Maybe your former employers the Rothschilds can arrange one for you…
