Give it all you've got, folks!

Between now and the referendum, I aim to spend much more online time posting on sites and places where the undecideds and the waverers are likely to be, making a presence in media comment sections and on social media site sites and generally campaigning for 'leave'. As an independent campaigner with expenditure under £10,000, there is no obligation to register with the electoral commission. 

I urge all of you to do likewise; we can't win against global corporate budgets and the economic power of entrenched interests, but what we can do is have a million ordinary folk on the blogs, messageboards and discussion groups pushing the 'leave' message - something the elite just can't do. 

This is a once in a lifetime chance, and the only chance we'll get to regain our freedom and sovereignty peacefully. Let's give it all we've got!

Way to go Radders!

You realise this will mean reading the Grauniad and so forth - truly, greater lover hath no man...

I assume you mean "greater LOVE"......although you know your own business best! ;>)))

I fully endorse your plan Radders, I will start with my immediate family to make sure they will turn out to vote to regain our once fair land.
Then I shall be taking every opportunity to open anyone's eyes to the truth about the federal monster that is sucking the life blood out of our country.

I was staggered that my sister has changed her mind and will now vote 'leave'. She is left wing, staunch Labour supporter for over 40 years and, was pro-Europe until only last week. So I said "why did you change your mind", and she replied "the same feeling I had about Blair in '96 I now have about Cameron."

She was right about Blair, at the time she said he was a "wrong'un" and it was her personal intuition speaking to her. She asked why I was voting 'leave' and I told her I couldn't support anything that was founded on a lie.

"Europe's nations should be guided towards the superstate without their people understanding what is happening. This can be established by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose, but will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation." - .Jean Monnet, Founding Father of the EU.

Because Anna Raccoon is a widely read blog, I'd be interested to read your take on the recent article http://annaraccoon.com/2016/02/22/they-long-to-be-close-to-eu/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+AnnaRaccoon+%28Anna+Raccoon%29 regarding 1/4 million ex-pats "swarming" back to England if we vote Leave successfully.

You could perhaps give some thought to debunking this, in case it carries some sway?

My thinking is it would work both ways. How many Europeans would move elsewhere if their Benefit payments were more attractive across the Channel? Net flow of people leaving exceeding the ex-pats returning? Have we not had a larger number of Rumanians arrive, who would no doubt move to another European country which would have to pay them Benefits?

And surely there could be Agreements negotiated between us and individual countries to assist our 1/4 million ex-pats.

@Steve - what a fantastic quote to show the EU's true colours. How could anyone want to remain after reading it?

So far, the reason of every 'stayer' I've heard amounts to "And always keep ahold of nurse for fear of finding something worse" (Belloc)

My own efforts to bolster the Leave campaign has two complications.

The SNP independence supporters and their intransigence on EU membership.

Given that an independent Scotland may well devolve to the status of an east European economic model, financial support in the form of EU membership is central to their survival post Scotxit. If they can't get finance from 'England' they'll get it from the EU instead (or 'England' anyway if they vote to stay in).

Similarly the SNP supporters fail to recognise the hypocrisy of 'independence' from the UK and their inevitable TOTAL reliance on the EU.

Sturgeon is happy to whip up support for Scottish independence amongst their many low-browed supporters but is unlikely to admit to them that EU membership is a fundamental necessity for this to happen hence her faux support for 'in'.

I'll keep trying though.

"How many Europeans would move elsewhere if their Benefit payments were more attractive across the Channel?"

Immigrants already in the UK and receiving benefits are unlikely to see those benefits reduced/removed even post-Brexit hence those already here will be happy to remain so.

No need for propaganda with so many negative EU stuff in the news, each and every day.

I've been doing that for quite a few years now, with a variety of identities.

But I'll up my efforts and spend rather less time on the Daily Telegraph, where most commentators are for LEAVE, and a lot more on the Guardian.

Speaking of the Guardian, Mandelscum has written a column which has been ripped apart by the CiFers with comments closed before I got to it.

Nice to see......

@Dave_G: I've often wondered why the SNP (aka "The Party" here in the SSSR*) is so mad keen on the EU. Is it, as I suspect, that they are in favour of anything the English are opposed to, and vice versa, just on principle?

Dave_G said...

@ WY - the media, as well as the SNP themselves, seem to exaggerate the support base for both independence AND the EU issue. Based on my own local experience support for both is far less than would be indicative of media reporting. That said, this is usually the case for areas outside the central belt anyway but there isn't really a 'common outlet' for people to express their opinion in Scotland.

The only thing that can be guaranteed is that the SNP supporter base FOR independence is populated by very aggressive members and that those with contrary opinions simply dare not make their case openly or publicly therefore we'll have to rely on the relative 'safety' of the potential referendum themselves (in/out the EU and in/out the Union) for the facts to reveal themselves.

One thing for certain, the 'hatred' for all things English is NOT something that's tangible in everyday life up here. It's a media construct.

AND NOT ONE OF YOU, not even Radders, have outlined the real & true threat.

NOT "immigration", which is an annoyance to some in some areas - but compare to immigrant-proportions in Germany/Italy/Greece, please.
No, there is a real permanent civil danger here.
That of European Law, the over-riding of the Bill of Rights by the vile European Arrest Warrant, &, in England & Wales, the supercession of Common Law by rule of & by Roman/Code Napoleon fiat.
This is a deliberate strike at our (supposed) fundamental liberties & must be resisted.

You are quite right of course. However the masses will probably be swayed by the garbage about cheap mobile phone charges and roaming data coast.

To paraphrase an American.

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little bit of cheap mobile data, deserve neither Liberty nor phones.

I cannot help but think your 'paraphrasing' of that bespectacled Terrorist from the Revolted Colonies would be greatly appreciated by him.
I see you share my contempt for the ignorant masses.
To quote, not paraphrase, a German;

"How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think."

Budgie said...

Sterculian Rhetoric, I suppose being "silly" is a tad better than "a thalidomide stump-sucking moron and an Epsilon Minus". However your posts still demonstrate that you are pompous and vain. It's all about you innit?

Budgie said...

G Tingey, Immigration is a problem because it is overloading the infrastructure. There are 8.4 million people living in the UK not born here (that are known). If that number were halved there would be 4 million fewer people using roads, trains, hospitals, GP surgeries, schools, and houses. That would make an enormous difference, particularly for our children.

Moreover, the point about immigration at the moment is it is uncontrolled. Even if the current population size is acceptable, with roughly half a million new migrants every year for the foreseeable future, UK population will be 100 million in 50 years time. It has to stop sometime. No one can seriously believe this can go on as it is.

Chum of mine works for Tesco. She thinks there are over 70 million people in the UK now, rather than the official 64, based on food consumption. Either that or we all eat wayyyyyy too much.
