In 30 seconds: Why Brexit is going to win on June 23

With five and a half weeks to go to the June 23 referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union, Brexit now looks certain to win. Here's why:

1) In order to secure victory, Remain should be 8-10 points clear by now in the polls. This is because turnout will be much higher on the Brexit side. Yet, polls of polls show a dead heat, with a slight lead recently for Brexit. See analysis here, also on why online polls (favouring Brexit) are likely to be more reliable.

2) Remain has fired off all of its big guns. But there has been no movement in the polls. They don't have any options left. See here for why.

3) David Cameron is a technocrat. He does not have the mental capacity, or the charisma, to engage an issue as substantive as Britain's membership of the EU. This is why he is so easy to ridicule. See here.

UK prepares to send warship to tackle Libya refugee crisis

The British government is preparing to send a Royal Navy warship to the coast of Libya to lead new attempts to tackle people and weapon smuggling amid fears of a surge in refugee boats following the closure of the Turkish route into Europe.

Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to outline a new EU plan on Friday, and a government spokesman said late on Thursday that a formal request for help was imminently expected from the UN-backed Libyan unity government.

The plan comes in a week in which nearly 200 people have died in shipwrecks off the Libyan coast. On Thursday, 80 people were said to have drowned when a boat carrying hundreds foundered about 64km off Libya, while the toll from a sinking on Wednesday rose to 100 when rescuers said many had drowned in the hold of the capsized boat. Hundreds of others were rescued from the ships.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what, precisely, is the British Government going to do with these battle-scarred, PTSD-haunted, hungry, and desperate refugees, attempting to get away from the monstrous civil war in their country, created courtesy of the US and NATO?!?

Yes, they can intercept the boats and get them to turn around, but what then, for these war refugees?!?

I would like to hope that SOMEONE at #10 Downing Street, and the British Naval High Command have been giving some thought to the long-term consequences of this policy.

‘All we have to fear is fear itself’

It is irresponsible to enter the polling booth on June 23 without trying to assess the reasons why so many citizens in the UK want to leave the EU. That disillusionment with, and sense of detachment from, Brussels is becoming widespread all over the EU.

There is a sense that austerity applies to all but the rich. A belief that the social part of the social market has been cast aside; deep unease at appalling levels of unemployment in some EU countries; shock that the commission negotiated in total secrecy with America the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership...

MPs warn voters being 'conned' as Brussels keeps plans for EU army secret until after referendum

British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.

Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.

The backlash came as it emerged plans to move towards the creation of a European army are being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is so horrific about this plan for a unified, European Army that Brits are not supposed to know about it until the day AFTER the referendum next month?!?

IF I were a Brit, I would want to know, and right the heck now, what Brussels had in store for this Army, and what the British commitment to it would be.

UK to Lose Out on Millions Due to Tax Loophole For Fracking Firms

Brussels fears Brexit will be ‘THE END’ of EU due to devastating domino effect

EUROPEAN leaders are scrambling to avoid a total collapse of the EU amid fears Brexit will inspire other countries to quit the union.

Senior officials are terrified a ‘Leave’ vote in next month’s referendum will cause a domino effect in the 28-state bloc - with one official revealing Brexit will be a “historical disaster.”

High-ranking Eurocrats have held a series of meetings in recent weeks to thrash out how the union will exist without Britain and how to stop other countries from following suit.

One senior French official told the Financial Times: “Playing down or minimising the consequences would put Europe at risk. The principle of consequences is very important — to protect Europe."

Bank in the UK? Plans afoot to make YOU liable for bank fraud

Bank customers may be obliged to bear the bill for fraud against their accounts, under proposed changes under consideration between banks, the UK government and GCHQ.

Under the plans, individuals or companies with poor online security could be “frozen out of banking services or even excluded from the system whereby banks compensate customers whose accounts are hacked”, the Financial Times reports.

UK banks - unlike those in the US - routinely cover the costs of online fraud, at least in cases where customer negligence (such as sharing PIN codes or cards with third parties) is excluded. Pushing the burden of fraudulent losses towards customers is likely to be hugely controversial.

Why we MUST quit the EU, by Cameron's guru: Friend and strategist Steve Hilton breaks ranks on Brexit to say Britain will be 'literally ungovernable' unless we take back power from the self-serving elite

Personal information on the lives of every person in Britain could be passed around between government departments, quangos, town halls and even private firms under new powers buried in the Queen’s Speech.

Economists have a century of failure behind them. No wonder they back Remain now

Over the past few weeks, David Cameron and George Osborne have been claiming, over and again, that those of us who support Brexit have lost the economic argument. They want us to concede that we only really care about “sovereignty”, and to accept that this would come at a heavy cost in terms of forgone prosperity.

It’s a convenient narrative for the Remain side, and one which underpins its strategy to win the referendum. It’s also utter nonsense.

Glyphosate EU approval decision postponed as concerns refuse to go away

Commenting on the development, Green environment and food safety spokesperson Bart Staes stated:

"This latest postponement is a sign that the significant opposition to reapproving glyphosate is being taken seriously by key EU governments. It is clear that the EU Commission and the agro-chemical industry were hell-bent on bulldozing through the approval of glyphosate for unrestricted use for a long timeframe but thankfully this push has been headed off for now. We hope this postponement will convince more EU governments to join in opposing the approval of this controversial substance and, at the very least, to proactively propose comprehensive restrictions on its use.

"The Commission cannot keep coming back with proposals that do not address the concerns with glyphosate. Instead, it needs to finally recognise that there are major problems with glyphosate and legislate for this.

Depending on which poll you read this week, the UK is either baulking at the thought of leaving the EU or on a clear path to Brexit and the ensuing apocalypse world leaders have predicted. RT asks: what is going on?

If the Greeks can save Feta cheese from TTIP, why can’t David Cameron protect the NHS?

Currently there is a row between the USA and the EU over what you can and can’t call Feta cheese under the controversial trade agreement TTIP.

Only products made in certain geographgical regions can be sold under these original names according to EU regulations.

In fact, so strong are views of the French when it comes to food, that French President François Hollande threatened to veto TTIP if this issue is not resolved stating: “We will never accept questioning essential principles for our agriculture”.

This national pride and protectionism doesn’t seem to have spread to this side of the Channel however. Despite being one of the cornerstones of British identity, David Cameron has failed to take such defensive measures over the NHS.
