Our Politicians sold out our Farming and Fishing Communities to appease other EU Members when we joined. It would be as contradictory as it would be treacherous for them to do so again when the British People Voted to Leave

I’m proud to be British. To be part of the whole Community which populates the whole of this, our UK. To know that by striving to put what is in our best interests first, will allow us to contribute bigger, better and more considerate things to the World all around.

Yet I know that as businesses and as individuals we all have our part to play. That we are as a Nation, the sum of all our different parts. That if we purposefully neglect any type of business, industry, individual or group of people, we will disadvantage ourselves not in part or as a fraction, but collectively, together and in sum total as a whole.

It is shameful that our Politicians have reached a place where they do not see any need to do the same, and that they put self-interest before that of the people who directly elected them.

They have outsourced the responsibility with which they have been entrusted, instead looking upon their position of influence as something for their own use which they effectively own.

Two of the Communities that have rightly expected to have a different experience as a positive consequence of Brexit are those in and around Farming and Fishing.

Because British Agriculture and Fishing and the control of both our related resources and their markets were so prized by the Europeans – and particularly the French who as now were one of the most influential and key beneficiaries of the European Project – they were both key targets for industrial subjugation by the Michel Barniers and Guy Verhofstadts of the day.

As with Theresa May today, her predecessors of the time were so hell-bent upon winning what they perceived as being a beneficial relationship with the EU, that they were not only prepared to, but actively sold out and compromised these two World renowned and identifiably British Industries purely for what they wrongly told us would be an overall gain.

Joining the Common Market and becoming enslaved by the evolution and thereafter legitimised assimilation of everything which was once under our own control, through undemocratic rule making, implementation and administrative control creep of the European Project has left both UK Agriculture and UK Fishing as mere shadows of what they would otherwise now have been.

There was no gain for Farming and Fishing.

UK Farming and Fishing have only experienced a net loss.

Subsidies have removed competitiveness from smaller scale specialist farming and created a dependent culture through the industry whilst making it near impossible to build a genuinely profitable business either without the scales of economy or without diversifying businesses into a range of areas which either have to be uniquely niche or have the ability to buck the online retail trends.

The travesty we have witnessed where fields stand idle because it is more cost effective for farmers to do nothing with them, and huge swaths of land have become more useful to owners for leisure rather than production has hurt our farmers, but the Country too. And it is clearly no accident that as a result of the requirements of EU Membership, we could not be further away from self-sufficiently as a Nation, if national emergency were to require that of the UK too.

Our Fishing rights were always prized by all the European Countries who have their own Fleets too and the EU must have thought all of it’s Christmases had arrived all at once, the day that an out of touch politician ceded those Rights and with them access to all of our Fishing, leaving greed on the part of Foreign Powers to lead to overfishing and abuse of our Fishing Stocks, without us having any ability to influence or bring a halt to this very unwelcome tide.

Many of our trawlers were simply scrapped to adhere to the EU’s implementation of quotas, where the idea of balance between 28 nations is to share out access to resources and markets. We are one, they are twenty seven. When we have great things which we give away to be shared, the point of balance move not towards the one and to a point which is not difficult to picture. Is this fair? You decide.

Within both industries and despite the buy-offs from The EU, which have ironically only ever been our own money, repackaged and sold as a form of benevolence which would otherwise be denied, Farming and Fishing communities up and down the United Kingdom votes Leave and instructed Politicuans to bring back their futures, like all of ours, to the determination of our own democratically elected politicians. They rejected The EU, it’s autocracy and inherent self-interest and said we have a much better future ahead.

Yet as Remsiners have taken ever step possible and used every opportunity possible to overturn the democratic will of the people and that which our farming and fishing communities displayed, they have continued to overlook and ignore the realities of the power and potential benefits that all of our businesses, industries, people and communities hold.

These lacklustre politicians want to sell us out yet again, completely oblivious to the many great worlds we have throughout the UK, dismissing the validity of anything they do not understand and attempting to create an even closer union with the EU whilst telling us they are delivering the will of the people with the assumption that what they say will be taken as being the truth, whilst the truth itself can from the safety of London always be cleverly denied.

Feeding the UK is a vital part of our future. We must prioritise UK Agriculture and Fishing once again and dismiss these destructive EU systems which have never benefitted any of us in the UK in any meaningful way. We know they aren’t good for us because we’ve had decades of them being tried.

For the UK to achieve everything that is possible, we must have an open international trade policy that is ours and only ours to decide

Capitulation by a British Prime Minister to what we now know as the EU is nothing new.

One of the differences between what Theresa May is now attempting to do to appease a foreign power and the activities of Prime Ministers such as Edward Heath, is that there is now much more information available on what the EU actually does and what Theresa May’s predecessors did to appease it. Many more people and Politicians are certainly awake to where the best interests of the UK would actually be.

The other is that the Prime Minister is simply attempting to ignore the will of both the people and many of the politicians around her. She has complete contempt for the process of democracy in everything that she now does.

On the face of it, the motivation of those Prime Ministers who took us in and then bolted us into the forerunner of the EU is a puzzle. That is until you appreciate that Leaders who are driven by fear soon lose track of what is actually needed, bypassing what is right and proper as they are driven by what they see as safe decisions, rather than those which no matter whether they come easy or hard are the essential part of all they have been empowered to do.

When we went into the Common Market, the price that we paid in terms of International Trade was exceptionally high.

Not only did we turn our back on very lucrative relationships right across the World, but also trashed our relationships witht key trading dependents placed right across what we now know as the Commonwealth.

It was a move that was as disloyal and neglectful to the Countries which share common ancestry to our own. All for the price of harmonisng and subjugating ourselves with the designs of a range of European Countries, who had many priorities which were written into the terms of our entry into the European Project. Priorities which cost many of our industries as benefits to other Members and their own Industries were made the priority with a massive cost to the efficiencies, productivity, creativity and above all profitability of our own.

These are not messages which we hear widely spoken.

They are messages that give the lie to the suggestion that in terms of trading, Membership of the EU is better and more beneficial for the UK than the alternative.

The alternative being for the UK to stand on its own feet in the World and accept that it has much more to gain in just about every respect by being brave and going back to our natural disposition of going it alone.

The UK will and always has been most successful when standing on its own.

But our relationship with the World changed as the World itself changed when the true impact of World War 2 manifested itself right across the Globe.

As is often the case, Politicians then, as they are still doing now, completely misread and misunderstood that change for what it was, what it should be. What the real opportunities were and what it would require to evolve the UK to get us there.

They let their own fear of that change and their fear of the responsibility that they held dictate what they thought the right solution would be.

Instead of being brave, they opted for what looked like the certainty that grouping together with other European Nations would offer them and their place in history.

They did so by saying damn the consequences and without any thought for the real price for the people they were elected to serve then, and for the generations that would follow thereafter.

As historical figures show, our trading performance before we joined the Common Market was significantly better on a worldwide and unhindered basis than it has ever been under the restrictions of being an EU Member.

Put simply, the UK is likely to have been in a much better place if Politicians of the day had possessed the metal to actually lead us, rather than take what looked like the safe bet or easy option – tying us in to a tightly restricted relationship led by a Foreign Power and in which we should never have been involved.

The similarities between what happened then, and what Theresa May is trying to do now is simply staggering. The difference is that as history has shown, the first time around, there was still the opportunity for us to remove the UK from the EU. Whereas if Theresa May were to achieve her aims, there would never again be any contractual mechanism for us to escape the EU’s bureaucratic tyranny and follow a friendly pathway to remove the UK from being involved.

It would be foolish to suggest that the transition from leaving the EU properly would have no turbulence involved.

But turbulence is inevitable whatever path we now take. It would simply be better that the turbulence ahead is something we experience and embrace by choice, rather than accept as an affliction at the hands of a Foreign Power that will have no concern for the specific consequences for the UK economy. Instead doing nothing other than prioritising what is good for them and good for it’s ‘own’.

What is certain is that in the medium and longer term, the UK is almost certain to perform much better once we have leadership that reflects the needs of UK Businesses and our Population, and we no longer have to prioritise the decisions of 27 other Countries first – a relationship which guarantees that our interests will only ever register at a level like we have never and will never actually be involved.

UK security is best served kept in our own hands. The EU would only increase risk to itself by burning the bridges between us when they benefit disproportionately from what we already give

To hear Theresa May and her coterie of die-hard Remainist Ministers speak, you would think that the UK is backward in just about every respect and incapable of making its way in the World without the stewardship and direction of a load of unelected bureaucrats shouting demands at us from an office across the English Channel and somewhere in the EU.

With the history we have – some of which will still be within the living memory of the Politicians who surround her – it is as amazing as it is sickening that people elected to the highest positions of power in the UK, could have not only adopted, but are hell bent on convincing everyone else of the validity of this view.

Yet this is where we are, and for as long as people who can only prioritise themselves are able to influence our destiny as a Nation, there remains a risk that they will take the UK and our people to places that we never belonged.

Security is once again a multifaceted and complex issue relating to Brexit which many of us do not understand.

In reality, we should never need to do so as we should be able to trust our decision makers to have a complete and objective view of everything which has happened, is happening and of course, that which either wont be or simply hasn’t yet come into view.

Regrettably they don’t.

This means that we are yet again being sold a story of our place in the World which is thoroughly demeaning. One that is only ever intended to convince us wrongly, that the UK risks finding itself out in the cold and that we have a dependence on the EU which has never ever had any reason to exist.

Defence & The Armed Forces

The EU now has very ambitious and documented designs on developing a Euro-Army of its own. A clear sign that the plan for a United States of Europe is clearly manifesting itself and one which makes clear that it would be foolish to believe that the phyrric freedoms that Theresa May is trying to tell us she has won, would continue to exist for very long.

Militarily, the World is an increasingly dangerous place. The Russians are already testing borders around Eastern Europe itself, but are also parked on our doorstep, even testing the airspace which is above the UK itself.

Meanwhile the USA and China are on a competitive journey both in trade and in places like the South China Sea which in less than a decade could escalate to a level which leaves military action the only way it can be resolved.

With the seemingly limitless level of chutzpa that the EU leadership already employs, it is clear that their own ambition for power and control and to be seen as a de facto world player will soon get them into significant trouble if they are ceded power over so much military power.

If we were to be tied in on the Terms of any form of Remain or May’s Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, it is almost certain that we would be dragged in and inevitably involved in anything that the unelected bureaucrats with power over 28 different Countries decide that they we and other Member States would be required to do.

The only way that we can guarantee complete control over the use of our Armed Forces and the choice over what future wars we may or may not wish to become involved with is to Leave the EU without an unnecessary and avoidable deal. We must take back control of everything with the first step being the reestablishment of trade with everyone – i.e. Leaving on WTO Terms.

Intelligence

On the gathering and use of security intelligence, Theresa May and her Remain-bent supporters are selling the UK very short too.

We have one of the best security and intelligence services in the World. We were at the forefront of intelligence service development and many Countries – not least of all the USA – have developed their own abilities based on the ground breaking and innovative work that we have done historically here in the UK.

There is and has never been any need for the UK to operate in any way other than alone.

We have always shared data with our allies and we survived very well indeed before the EU and its fearful disciples came along.

It is ridiculous to believe that we can improve the security of the UK by removing borders and harmonising everything that we do and have with foreign powers.

Those Remainers who read this and suggest that simply remaining would have meant that everything would stay the same as it is now are being either ignorant or disingenuous at best.

The evolution of the EU is and has only ever been one way. That is the centralisation of power of all kinds in Brussels and the removal of localised – ergo Nationally identifiable structures which could be used to initiate a democratic claw back by Nation States or in any other way get in their way.

Remember that it is not we the UK who are threatening to withdraw cooperation with the EU once we have finally rescinded our Membership.

It is the EU that is creating the problems.

It is the EU’s desire for overall control which is overriding the continuing benefits of working together sensibly.

It is the EU that has so much more to loose.

Cyber Security

Whilst the topic still remains without great attention from the media, it is the area of cyber security where the benefits of our continuing to work alone and without the dilution of other misleading interests that tell us the UK must continue to steer its ship and be happy standing out in the World alone.

We face threats of a technological kind, leveled at us from World players who in conventional military terms are not even on the risk list. Yet in terms of their current and developing abilities to access and potentially disrupt vital infrastructure at the touch of a button, they may already have the power to affect this and other Western Countries in ways which could only be more severe if we were to experience the fallout of a full scale nuclear war.

Joking aside, countering such threats is not something to be all communal about and leave to people who have no interest in the people and businesses of the UK.

We simply cannot trust the EU to protect us from the threats that we are already working against in the UK and have been for a considerably long time.

Terrorism

Terrorism is the final thing that we hear scare stories about that are used as a basis for our Independence to be denied. Yet returning our own borders is a much safer option for us to ensure that both malevolent would-be terrorists, foreign actors and arms shipments will be continually denied and not made more likely by the mission creep of the EU to abolish any form of meaningful self-government, its policy and rule.

Yes, we must continue to collaborate with our friends wherever possible. But giving them control over our future security is foolishness in the extreme. We must take back all power that has already been granted to foreign powers and share whatever we can when it is possible, whilst accepting that it will always be best to keep security as a key policy for our own Government to determine and decide.
