Don’t believe the ‘we need the EU for trade’ myth

The EU is becoming less and less significant as a trading partner to the UK. We should be looking further afield to expanding markets such as Asia and the US. We can still trade with the EU, as other nations do, but we don’t have to pay a hefty price for membership of a club with no benefits.

Trade figures show we do more and more business outside the EU, which, for Britain, is a declining asset. Despite what we are being told by the mainstream media, and a political establishment intoxicated by visions of a federal Europe, the EU is not the future. It is the past

Barack Obama is wrong and hypocritical on EU Referendum

Obama shows his ignorance of history when he says the EU “is part of the cornerstone of institutions built after World War II that has made the world safer and more prosperous.” NATO has done this, the EU certainly hasn’t. The EU is a cause of division, splits and disharmony within Europe. For example do the Greek citizens feel “more prosperous” for being part of the EU?

Europe was plunged into a war when a dictatorship wanted to make a single state and impose it’s will on it. This undemocratic “European Union” is doing the same. Did we elect our president? When did the people of the UK say we want the EU to override our own parliament and laws and then pay for the privilege?

He is hypocritical in wanting the UK to be a member of the EU. He would not let the USA be a member of an organisation that allowed unlimited immigration and that imposed it’s laws and taxes on the US.

Like most Americans I don’t think he understands the world outside.

EU diplomats plan £2 million dinner service

The flabbergasting arrogance and waste of the EU knows no bounds.

Crystal whisky glasses, silver candelabras and fine china decorated with gold EU flags to form glittering dinner service for Brussels’ ascendant diplomatic corps

The fine dining comes as other arms of the EU instruct member states, including Britain, to cut their public deficits.

The bulk of the cost falls in the silverware, for which up to two million euros (£1.39 million) has been set aside.
