Brexit clashes and reasons to consider to bring out the right vote

On May the 9th David Cameron, prime minister, raised the spectre of European wars in making the case for staying in the EU. It followed George Osborne, chancellor, on Sunday appealing to the darkest British psychoses with a warning that Brexit would sink house prices.

Europe needs people coming out to say why it is necessary we should have a strong Union. the Netherlands and Great-Britain are a thorn in the eyes and the Greek crisis is undermining the European Union as well.

The Australian analyst Sir Lynton Crosby has said supporters of leaving the European Union are more motivated to turn out on referendum day and could give Brexit the edge. He said Brexit backers were more likely to turn out on June 23 – turning a knife edge two point lead for Leave into a much more significant seven point advantage. In analysis for the Daily Telegraph, Sir Lynton said the final result remained ‘in the balance’. 

We can notice an ungrounded fear of uncontrolled immigration as the main reason for not immediately backing ‘Remain’. Though we should seriously reconsider if this refugee crisis is really so much bringing Europe in unbalance.

All European governments should realise that the strength of Europe can only be insured by making clear that the citizens will have enough stability by having enough funds to live reasonably well and not to be squeezed out by the greedy parliaments of the individual countries, like Belgium is trying to squeeze its inhabitants as far as they can and those citizens seem to be reluctant to accept it or not to go into the counter-attack.

Whether Britain and the Netherlands will remain in the Union depend on how much that assembly of countries is willing to look at a reformed Europe enjoying all the benefits that brings, like lower prices in the shops, more jobs and safer streets, or whether those benefits are put at risk by leaving. And for sure the citizens should know they are putting them more at risk by leaving the union and such exit shall exclude them form the market advances of a strong union and giving them less voice and lesser opportunities to press for their own advantage.

Mr Cameron knows that

‘Britain is stronger, safer and better off in Europe. Families across the country have more security and greater opportunity as part of the European Union.’

but it is to the government of Great Britain and the European Union to proof this.

Dutch people reject the deal and crushes expansionist Brussels, looking forward to a Brexit and a Nexit

Last month stunning rejecting of a plan by EU bureaucrats to bring Ukraine into the bloc’s sphere of influence was a fair sign showing many Dutch citizens do not see the use of such a greater Union. 61.1% of the Dutch people who voted to block the deal, compared to just 38.1% who want it to go ahead, has also to be seen in the light that for many Dutch people this referendum was more a vote against than for the European Union, the referendum effectively acting as a barometer for anti-EU feeling in the country.

Eurosceptic MP Joram van Klaveren rubbed his hands declaring:

”The Netherlands is overwhelmingly against this.”

The Dutch Anti-EU campaigners in the country urge Britons to take their chance to leave the undemocratic bloc by voting for Brexit in their June referendum.

The proposed deal with Ukraine, which has been signed off by David Cameron, proposes a huge shift in political, trade and defence cooperation between Brussels and Kiev which is seen as the first step towards Ukraine becoming a full EU member.But it has gone down like a lead balloon with the Dutch public, who are increasingly turning against the EU as calls for a Brexit continue to gather pace.

The ‘no’ vote is yet another disaster for beleaguered Brussels and will only add to the rising anti-EU sentiment sweeping Europe. The pressure of the refugee crisis is not helping either to get people to see that we all need each other to stand strong against the upcoming new powers, like China and to protect ourselves against incoming goods form the United States and other Great Powers.

Already in 2005 Dutch voters broke from a pro-European tradition and rejected controversial plans for an all-encompassing EU constitution.

Their overwhelming no vote followed a similar verdict from French electorate just days earlier and led to the plan being scrapped, although Eurosceptics fear it is only a matter of time before Brussels revives it.

Meanwhile Michael Gove, justice secretary, confirmed that a vote to leave the EU will also mean a vote to leave the single market  – arguing that the Germans would continue to trade with the Brits regardless. Jürgen Maier, chief executive of Siemens UK, shot back that Gove’s remarks are “unbelievable” and lack “any understanding of what the single market is all about”. {Financial Times}

Ipsos has conducted a Brexit-related poll in nine leading EU states, and the results are worth a look. There are widespread fears of a contagion effect and other countries seeking their own referendums. The nation that seems closest to follow Britain out the door – should it go – is Italy. Some 58 per cent of Italians want a referendum, according to Ipsos. Then the vote would be on a knife-edge, with 48 per cent saying that they would want to quit the bloc.

The British Government believes that voting to remain in the EU is the best decision for the UK. British citizens should take the opportunity on the 23rd of June to decide their own future and the future of the UK. It is important that they vote. In a certain way they should also recognise how they are so privileged, the UK still having a special status in a reformed EU. It has kept the pound, will not join the euro and has kept control of the UK border. The UK Government has negotiated a new settlement with the EU ahead of the referendum. The Government believes this deal gives the UK within the EU the best of both worlds.

The deal gives the UK the best of both worlds. The UK is stronger, safer and better off in a reformed EU. We have access to the Single Market and play a leading role in determining the rules that govern it.

EU membership contributes to the attractiveness of the UK for international investment. It also gives us access to trade deals with over 50 countries around the world. EU membership means opportunities, jobs, and greater economic security for the people of the UK.

This special status means that it is the Government’s view that the UK’s national interest – the interests of every family, household, business, community, region and nation within the United Kingdom – is best served by their country remaining in a reformed EU.

The citizens of the UK should be aware that if they decide to leave the EU they will stand on their own having less speaking partners to regulate prizes with the different countries at the European continent.

Some British  argue that the UK could strike a good deal quickly with the EU because they want to keep access to their market. But they can be very mistaken, having to face it that now England shall need the continental products so shall have to pay more for them, because the continent do need them not any more. Government’s judgement is that it would be much harder than that – less than 8% of EU exports come to the UK while 44% of UK exports go to the EU.

Funny that the Brits do not see that until know they had a privileged position, no other country having managed to secure significant access to the Single Market, without having to: follow EU rules over which they have no real say; pay into the EU; accept EU citizens living and working in their country.

A more limited trade deal with the EU would give the UK less access to the Single Market than they have now – including for services, which make up almost 80% of the UK economy. For example, Canada’s deal with the EU will provide limited access for services like air travel, broadcasting and banking. The deal has been seven years in the making, and is still not in force.

The European Union shall continue to make good trade agreements with outside countries, but will know that the UK is not such a trustworthy partner any more. The UK herself would seek to renegotiate trade agreements with more than 50 countries outside the EU which would take years without any guarantee that the UK would manage to negotiate terms as good as those they can enjoy today under EU arrangements. A vote to leave would damage the economy, certainly in the short term and probably in the long run.

The benefits of the trade deals currently being negotiated by the EU, including with the US and Japan shall be of no profit to England, which also risks loosing the connection with Scotland that shall have a stronger reason to ask (demand) for independence it staying in the EU.

Hopefully enough Britons shall understand that 82% of total UK exports is at risk and that after after 15 years this could mean:

  • a cost per year equivalent to £4,300 per household in the UK
  • a hit to tax receipts of £36 billion a year
  • this is the equivalent of an extra 8p on the basic rate of income tax

In April, speaking in the German city of Hanover ahead of a summit with Mr Cameron and other EU leaders, the American leader Barack Obama acknowledged that European unity involved “frustrating compromise”, but hailed the multinational union as

“one of the greatest political and economic achievements of modern times”.

Though with a Brexit Europe shall be hit in the kidneys. It would uncouple the world’s fifth-largest economy from its biggest market, making it also weaker and to be reliant on the balancing forces of America and Europe and having the EU giving a strong sign what shall happen when an other country wants to leave the union. The EU would have a strong incentive to impose a harsh settlement to discourage other countries from leaving.

Our world is so caught up in a globalist system that power is necessarily pooled and traded. Those going to vote, or not going to vote, should wonder if it shall be worth it  Britain giving up sovereignty in exchange for clout through its memberships of NATO, the IMF and countless other power-sharing, rule-setting institutions. Signing up to treaties on trade, nuclear power or the environment involves submitting to regulations set jointly with foreigners, in return for greater gains. Britain outside the EU would be on the sidelines: notionally independent from, but in fact still constrained by, rules it would have no role in formulating. It would be a purer but rather powerless sort of sovereignty. Shall they be happy with that and shall it bring them further in easier living circumstances?

I think they shall be come more isolated and after some years having to rethink their situation of solo slim parader.

    The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, nonetheless I genuinely thought you would have something helpful to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

    Dear Gary Boulet or Duggan Poe of at @weinstein65owenx,

    Thank you for reading and reacting to my posting.

    I was not and I am not seeking for attention.
    You made me also curious by writing “All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.” So, I wonder how I could fix those matters of Brexit? How could I as a lonely citizen living in Belgium avoid this beloved (mother-)country step out of the European Union? Living at the continent, how could I or can fix the problems caused by the majority of Britains to go out of the European Union?
    Furthermore how can I take care of Great-Britain with England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that they shall stay united and working together with the continent to withstand the globalisation?
