EU Referendum Date Announced

It has been ten months since our fearless leader David Cameron renewed his place in office, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/general-election-result.html. In his election manifesto he pledged a binary in-out referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union. This was because he needed to head off the UKIP voters; and also because he thought his new term would continue his coalition with the Liberal Democrats, allowing him a way to conveniently welsh on his commitment. To his dismay, he has won a majority government and so cannot wriggle out of his promise to "let the people decide" the country's place in Europe. But as Henry Kissinger said: "This is too important to let the people decide!" Cameron is now going to scavenge a whole attic full of dirty tricks to get what he wants while insisting that "the people have spoken and I have listened!" He has spent the last few months in Brussels "renegotiating" the UK's EU membership conditions in order to make an In vote look more appealing. This is the equivalent of the devo-max bribe that the Scottish people were offered to stop them voting for independence; by electing to stay in the UK they were offered a maximum devolved government in exchange. I hope nobody falls for the same scam twice in as many years. That is one of many parallels between the Scottish independence referendum and the upcoming EU one, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/programme-104-podcast-scottish.html.

The European Union is made up of twenty-eight "member states", meaning formerly sovereign lands that have joined it. The EU never refers to its constituents as "nations" or "countries" which in itself is very revealing and sinister. It has expanded in size, gathering new members, as of 2013 stretching from Ireland to Cyprus; with a population of half a billion. Its origins are shrouded in mystery and obfuscation. It has developed incrementally through a set of pacts relating to trade, defence and travel, all portrayed as unrelated and self-contained, beginning in 1948 with the Treaty of Brussels. It is clear that there was an underlying long-term strategy behind all these accords, and this brings us onto the justification for the EU. The biggest argument against a new referendum is that the British people have supposedly already decided to be in the EU because of the vote we had in 1975 in which we agreed. It's true that there was a referendum in 1975, but it was over Britain's membership of the EEC, the European Economic Community. This was essentially a free trade zone. The Prime Minister Edward Heath had entered the UK into the EEC two years earlier so the referendum was also a retrospective one. This was before the Maastricht Treaty and the transformation of the EEC into the European Community and then eventually the European Union. In 1975 the British people were given no hint that their choice would eventually lead to them entering a political federation (although Tony Benn warned us about it, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/tony-benn-dies.html). The EU is little different in form to the United States of America or any of the other federations of the world. In fact in some ways Nevada has more independence from the Federal US government than the Netherlands does from the European commission. The only reason we don't all use the Euro as our currency is because of the resistance a lot of the people have shown, especially in the UK. However, the EU has forced us all to abide by the metric system of measurements. I remember when all British retailers were obliged by law to sell goods in grams and kilograms. Pounds and ounces were banned, even though British people have used imperial measurements for all our history and words like "foot", "inch", "mile" etc are ancient native English terms; very different to the French-derived metre, gramme etc. I remember a shopkeeper in a small village was fined heavily and even threatened with prison when he resisted. The EU regulators have set about making Europe a no-go area for traditional herbal medicine and organic food. They have imposed taxes, levies, reforms and caps on national imports and exports of everything from wine to sausages. Red Leicester cheese almost lost its unique colour because carotene, the agent used, was banned by the "Eurocrats". They're all set to impost the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership too, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/oxford-ttip-meeting.html. At the moment opinion polls are finely balanced with a large undecided pool; exactly as it was in Scotland in 2014. During the next four month we are going to see the authorities go overboard with scaremongering. They're going wheel out every big gun of fear to try and convince us Britain will return to the dark ages in we leave the EU. As a last resort they will simply fix the ballot. British elections always work the same way. There is just a single day to vote, called "polling day" and the electorate vote by putting a cross on a piece of paper. This in itself is sinister because the cross is traditionally the signature of the illiterate, the serf, the fool. The count begins on polling day as soon as the polls close at about ten PM. This means that the vote-counters work through the night. Why not wait until the next day and count the votes then? Because as I've written about before, it is unnatural for humans to be awake and night and we are always drowsy, more suggestible and lose alertness, see: http://hpanwo-hpwa.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/shiftwork-health-risks.html. Therefore any tampering with the count for the purposes of rigging the election becomes much easier, This incriminating footage was taken during the independence vote in Scotland during the count, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZRYVE4naHc. As none other than Joseph Stalin said: "It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything." I'm surprised at how Cameron has announced the date of the referendum with such short notice. Thursday the 23rd of June, just four months away. Why? Perhaps he hopes to steamroller through and get the result he wants before the Out campaign have got their act together. As the establishment position, the In camp will be far better funded and organized than the Out one. With a currently ambivalent electorate, it will not take much pressure to knock them off the fence. Also there are predictions of another financial crash looming, "the Big Drop" as it has already been dubbed. Cameron will be scared that if he delays we might end up voting in the middle of it and that might influence us away from the Eurozone.
If this were a free and fair election then the Out tendency would win hands down, but it will not be fair. Sadly we have a population that has proven to be very vulnerable to manipulation and intimidation by authorities who are experts at psychological warfare; not to mention the means to commit electoral fraud. The only chance we have is if every conspiratorially-aware person spends all night at the polling stations watching the counts with cameras on the room. Personally I am the ultimate Out-er. I think Britain should leave the European Union completely and immediately. I would even say that having a referendum is wrong because the UK's entry into the EU was an act of treason. You can't have a referendum on treason. You just tear up the membership papers and jail those responsible. I wouldn't describe myself as a nationalist, but it's a fact that the nation state has functioned as the basic unit of geopolitics very well for centuries, and the modern trend is towards abolishing it should concern us all, no matter what our beliefs. I hope the people have the will to resist, yet the path to independence will be rougher and steeper than even getting through this referendum. One of the most unusual events in British history was the dismissal of the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher from office because of her refusal to enter Britain into the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, the precursor to the Euro. This was essentially a bloodless coup-d'├ętat. This shows how important the EU is to the powers-that-be. The formation of a one-world government can be done in several ways, but one method they seem to prefer, to cite Joseph Stalin again, is the two-stage model. First there would be giant super-states covering whole continents; and only after that would they be amalgamated into the New World Order. George Orwell also warns us of this in his book 1984. In the story the world is divided between the blocs, Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia. This is why if the vote is to leave the EU, Britons must be prepared for more struggle. To what lengths would the elite not go to hold their embryonic world federation together? They might impose economic sanctions on an independent Britain... which Cameron would of course then claim were not deliberate, but were the inevitable economic consequences of leaving the EU. Maybe they would try to kick us back inside with a trade embargo, perhaps even war. I have no doubt that an alert and steadfast population can scupper the agenda for a New World Order, but we must be prepared for some bad days ahead.

A prescient piece Ben. The similarity of the EU membership Referendum to the Scots vote and extrapolating from there to the likely outcome in particular.

From where I am writing, the Irish Establishment were secretly very concerned by the prospect of an independent, resurgent Scotland and were very pleased with the British Establishment-led result. I suspect the Germans, French et al. feel the same way about the independence of a famously ingenious land free of the burden of Euro regulation. However, as with the Scottish question, it would appear that your independence will not be countenanced, by fair means or foul.

Cheers, Laurence. I had a feeling this would ring a bell with you, being an Irishman. Ireland has been gutted by this crooked regime, as the musician and activist Jim Corr has pointed out.

Laurence said...

Yes indeed. As you demonstrate in the piece, it is a measure of the sorry state of UK sovereignty within the EU empire. It appears that you have been so poorly served by the Establishment since Thatcher that seceding from the EU is now tantamount to Irish independence from the Empire, ironically. Unfortunately, in the Irish case, the EU and their indigenous willing apparatchiks took up where the Empire left off. This year's centenary of 'The Rising' is ringing very hollow over here as a result.
