So all the promises made about the result being final and that it would be honoured were made by politicians who never believed that the British public could possibly ignore their dire warnings. In the immediate aftermath of the referendum those, like myself who had campaigned hard to leave, undoubtedly took our eyes off the ball.
We were exhilarated, filled with positive feelings about our country’s future outside the EU and so proud of those wonderful men and women across the country who despite the entire establishment urging a Remain vote went out and voted for an independent future for the UK.
We were even more proud of the millions who came along to the huge rallies and told us, some with tears in their eyes, that for the first time they believed that it was worth voting. I too believed that the promises made by politicians and enacted in the referendum legislation would be respected.
Yet two years later that same establishment backed by much of the broadcast media is bombarding us with messages of fear. Every day another “celebrity” pops up to support a “people’s vote” – shorthand for another referendum. Their aim is to demoralise and frighten, hoping that more and more people will just accept a watering down of the 2016 result.
MP and Leave campaigner Kate Hoey
The EU Commission assumed we would change our minds. There has never been a referendum result it didn’t like that it hasn’t overturned. The Danes, the French, the Irish, the Dutch and the Greeks all voted against the EU and then were forced to vote again or were ignored because apparently the voters were “misinformed”.
A friend told me last week of how a week before the referendum his uncle, a labourer who rarely voted in ordinary elections, said to him: “If we vote Leave, just watch. They will make us vote again until we give them the result they want.”
Having told him that would be unthinkable in this country he realises now he was being naïve. The fact that elements within the Cabinet seem to be aiding and abetting the EU by being so feeble in standing up for our country is a betrayal of the British people.
The EU will never accept when democratic electorates reject the push for further integration. The EU is a market project, not a democratic project. Mistrust of national majorities is at the heart of the EU.
Tony Benn described the EU as a coup d’état by a political class who did not believe in popular sovereignty. The EU is dominated by politicians who do not trust their own people. This is extremely dangerous.
Mistrust of national electorates is embedded in the political cultures of some European countries but it goes directly against the way the British constitution has evolved. Nye Bevan, another Labour EU sceptic, praised the tremendous power of the UK system, which gives to a party winning a majority in the House of Commons almost unlimited power.
UK socialists traditionally understood that there were few institutional limits on a Labour government with a majority. The EU is a major limit. The commission’s behaviour towards the Greeks and now the Italians is a warning. From their perspective national demo cracies cannot – indeed must not – have control over their own economic futures.
It could not have been put more clearly than by the German finance minister when he said after the Greek elections: “We can’t possibly allow an election to change anything.”
Brexit is fundamentally a constitutional decision, not a policy one. It opens up a new range of policy options but there is no single set of policies inherent in Brexit. This is why it doesn’t make any sense when people talk about a “Tory Brexit”. It would be like talking about a “Tory first-past-thepost,” a “Tory voting age”.
The latest stunt by Remainers is to quote polls supposedly showing that Labour Leave areas are changing their minds. But these are the same polls which told us Remain would win. The vote that mattered was on June 23, 2016. We have had the people’s vote and it delivered to the British establishment the biggest shock since Churchill was thrown out of Downing Street in 1945.
RALLYING CRY: There were many rallies in the run-up to the referendum on the EU
Just think if, after Labour had won that election, the Bank of England issued a warning that a Labour government would be ruinous to the public finances, big business threatened to leave the UK and then Churchill said that he would not resign as prime minister until there was a second vote because he felt the Labour campaign had been misleading?
It would amount to little less than an anti-democratic coup, which is exactly what is being staged by these People’s Vote campaigners now. So what should Leavers do?
As Callaghan said: “We do not need to throw our hand in, beset by a false and unworthy despair. We need to believe in ourselves again.”
We can no longer trust the Government to deliver the result of the referendum. It is time for all those who voted Leave to speak out and make their voice heard.
That is why I support the reinvigorated Leave Means Leave campaign. We have to show we will not allow politicians to betray the will of the people.

With an avg. 1.2M voters per MEP & Britain with 16% of EU GDP and 13% of the EU’s population yet having only 8% (if united) say, whilst holding less than 3% of the various offices within the EU Do note The EUropean Parliament has no ability to make policy and has a Commission of unelected bureaucrats, thus clearly the EU is not even a pretence of being a democracy despite its protestations!Do note that many senior apparatchicks and even elected politicians speak openly of the ‘Post Democratic era’ with no sense of shame or irony and in complete contempt of the so called electorate – yet The EU & many of its vassal States/Regions are all too willing to slaughter people in Sovereign States, to impose The EU’s chosen brand of democracy on them!
Now as President Junker announced in his ‘State of the union’ speech 2017 the aim is to create an EU military force and centralise ever more of the decision making and control!
The imposition of a Government and policies upon its vassal regions such as the peoples of Greece shows just how far from being a democracy the EU is.
Just follow the recent EU display of so called ‘Democracy’:
France and the Netherlands voted against the proposed EU constitution in 2005, only to have those votes ignored.
Ireland voted against ratifying the Lisbon treaty in 2008, but then later under pressure & threats had to change its mind.
Greece for me was the final straw. It became clear in 2015 that it didn’t matter which way the Greek people voted. The birthplace of democracy had become its tomb. That was enough. I was going to vote to leave the EU when the chance came.
No political party of any significance in Britain took active steps to achieve a Referendum – the task was eventually taken by an Indipendent West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire who personally launched and funded the gathering of a petition of 225,000 signatures delivered to Parliament via Downing Street, thus forcing a debate in the House of Commons on an IN/OUT Referendum, which led to David Cameron’s first consequential rebellion.
It was due to winning that debate, officially opposed by every party including Ukip that David Cameron was forced to include a promise of an IN/OUT Referendum in the Tory Manifesto at the next General Election. The rest is history & despite no Parliamentary Party backing the OUT vote & Government spending Millions of Pounds of public money leafletting & promoting ‘Project Fear’ to try to persuade the British people to Remain just as they had at the first Referendum in 1975 – This time their lies and threats were not heeded and in the largest vote in British history Britain voted by a clear majority to Leave.
Nikki Sinclaire’s OUT result left Cameron & his co conspirator Osborne with no option but to resign, sadly some of the other traitors have remained to try to hinder progress to BreXit, aided by their corrupt allies in the EU and \eu funding and bribes!
There will be little or no change in Britain’s economic position, if we leave the EU, using a better negotiated, customised & updated version of the ‘Norway Model’ as a stepping stone to becoming a full member of the Eropean Economic Area, where all will benefit, as we secure trade relations with the EU’s vassal regions, with an EFTA style status and can trade and negotiate independently on the global stage, as members of The Commonwealth and the Anglosphere.
This is of course dependent on a modicum of intelligence on the part of Britain’s politicians and negotiators but it also requires the integrity of Parliament to uphod democracy and the integrity of EU politicuians & apparchicks to act ethically and without their normal vindictive mallice.
I believe Leaving the EU will be turned into something of a rough ride by the ignorant and the corrupt but I have no doubt that in the long run Leaving the EU will prove conclusively to be in the best interests of Britain and our true allies. I also believe that Britain leaving the EU will prove to be the catalyst to great changes within the EU and hopefully its democratisation as without great changes it is indubitably doomed.
Do not overlook the fact that politicians have plotted and schemmed since the 1950s and we have actually been vassals of the EU, when it was still using the aesopian linguistics and calling itself The Common Market in the early 1970s, a name the bureaucrats arbitrarily changed to EUropean Union in the early 1990s as they worked towards their long term goals of an ever closer centrally controlled Political and economic Union with its own anthem, currency, flag and rigid central control by its self appointed bureacrats towards a new Empirate –
It will take many years to rectify the mess our political class got us into and we have no other peacefull means by which to extricate ourselves than to depend on that self same self styled elite, who all too often forget they work for us!
One huge benefit of BreXit will be that we can negotiate with bodies like the WTO, UN, WHO, IMF, CODEX and the like, directly, in our own interest and that of our partners around the world, in both the Commonwealth and the Anglosphere at large; rather than having negotiations and terms imposed by unelected EU bureacrats and their interpretation of the rules handed down, as if they were some great achievement of the EU’s!The greatest change and benefit will be political, as we improve our democracy and self determination, with the ability to deselect and elect our own Government, with an improved Westminster structure, see >Harrogate Agenda<.
