In the last week and to the dismay of the crying liberal commentators, the British government have added more meat to the proverbial bones of ‘Brexit’. Some questions have been answered and if we take the Prime Minister at her word, we know now that immigration controls will be prioritised over Britain’s membership of the single market, we know that the ‘Great Repeal Bill’ will be introduced to end the supremacy of EU courts and finally, the long awaited news that Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty will be invoked in Q1 of 2017 at the very latest. This is all music to the ears of those of us who believe in Britain and her future prospects and, wonderfully, it is showing the liberal metropolitan elitists that they’re fighting a losing battle.
It seems that the Prime Minister, as was explained very articulately in the Daily Telegraph yesterday, is finally doing what Enoch Powell cried out for all those years ago – listening to the people on Europe and immigration. For too long we have been ignored and our concerns brushed aside or silenced with cries of ‘xenophobia’ and ‘racism’, whilst foreign workers have been shipped into our communities against our will and with no prior consultation. We saw the loss of sovereignty over our nation to the European institutions, whilst the traitors Ted Heath, John Major, Ken Clarke and co told us not to worry, that it was just a trading arrangement – well, what a pack of lies that turned out to be! But, finally the British people were told the truth about Europe and we rejected it in record numbers. The Prime Minister now must deliver on the will of the people as, after all, that is the primary job of elected officials.
But, there are a few snags that even this newly emboldened Tory government will not address.
The problem with immigration is not limited to just workers’ rights and wages. Yes, as a people we are rather irked that companies hire exclusively in Eastern Europe whilst British people are out of work. Yes, we are very annoyed that immigrants get instant access to the National Health Service, without paying a single penny into the system. But, do not make the mistake of believing that the British people’s issue with mass immigration is primarily an economic one, because it is not. The primary concern that the vast majority of Britons have with immigration is an ethnic/cultural issue, something that not even UKIP are willing to acknowledge! We do not wish to see Polish enclaves cropping up in our towns and cities, or Bulgarian street gangs sleeping rough under bridges. We do not want our children exposed to negative cultural influences in the classroom, or have to tolerate those who do not seem to care to speak our language correctly. And, crucially, we do not wish to see native Britons become a minority in our homeland – this would not be tolerated by other nations, so why should we tolerate it? The government must acknowledge the ethnic and cultural arguments against immigration or if they won’t, somebody else must step up who is willing.
Furthermore, there seems to be some conflict within the government in regards to the economic issues of ‘Brexit’. On one hand, we hear the Prime Minister rightly advocating a more interventionist approach to the economy, to ensure that big business is regulated and taxed fairly – it would be welcomed if Theresa May had the wherewithal to tackle the banks, but of course her party is owned by them so that is hopeful at best. However, we then hear the minister for international trade, Liam Fox, advocating the predictable libertarian approach, praising free trade as the bringer of all that is good in the world. So, do we have a mixed-market economy? Or do we have international free trade? The problem with the latter is that it will always disadvantage Britain, particularly if our currency continues to decrease in value, as we are becoming too dependent on imports. International free trade ensures there is always some 10 year old in Indonesia who will make a product cheaper than you or I ever could – this disadvantages British workers and innovators. Throughout the referendum campaign we heard this line that ‘Britain would leave Europe to embrace the wider world’ – no, whilst a catchy soundbite, this is not the way. Protectionist policies must be pursued in order to protect the livelihoods of the small businesses and production workers here in the UK.
Finally, we must address of course the threats and warnings coming from the continent. We have Frau Merkel, the traitor of Europe, claiming we can have no access to the single market without free movement. Then, we have Francois Hollande claiming Britain must be ‘made to pay’ for our decision to leave the EU – Hollande would do well to remember that under his watch, his country is close to bankruptcy and Islamic terrorists freely roam to kill and maim his citizens – he has no authority to be issuing threats to Britain. These globalist fools, along with their friends at the EU, have done more to damage European peace and unity than a little referendum ever could! With their records they should not have the audacity to threaten a nation like Britain. With elections coming up next year in both France and Germany, these so-called leaders would do well to remember that they have citizens who’s livelihoods depends on a good trading relationship with Britain. Hopefully their people will see through this nonsense and recognise that Britain’s only crime has been to take the first steps towards national freedom and self-determination, a natural right set out in the United Nations charter.
A ‘hard Brexit’, where we are tough on immigration, tough on trade and tough on the supremacy of British courts is essential if the government wishes to be remembered for fulfilling the will of the people. This is all we ask, no more or less, that our expressed wishes are adhered to. When politicians realise that they need only ask of us our vote in return for their honesty, perhaps some justice will be returned to the electoral system and we will really get what we vote for.
A word of caution, however. This government is led by Theresa May, who famously claimed that ‘Sharia Law has a place in British society’. She is flanked by the arch-liberal Boris Johnson, who is in fact an advocate of increased migration to London and of Turkey joining the European Union. There are morons like Amber Rudd at the home office, an ardent ‘remainer’ who cannot in any way be trusted to bring down immigration. The Tories have a track record of deception for votes, so to trust them on this issue would be foolish. We must now sit back and see what grows from the ashes of the referendum and, if it is not what we want, we must make it known, loudly.
