it is well worth reminding readers that it seems all too clear that neither the Remainers, the BreXiteers nor those seeking to acquit their duties to the electorate, who in a People’s Vote unequivocally voted as a majority for an Unconditional BreXit, have the vaguest clue what the meaning of an EU Customs Union is!

What little it might seem to solve is better solved in other ways, particularly in view of the problems it brings with it. Problems that are an integral part of being a member of the Customs Union, problems that in reality would leave Britain as members of the EUropean Union in all but name a problem exacerbated by the fact that we would no longer have a say in law making at the top table.

The same of course is true of any plan to remain as members of the EU Single Market.

Our politicians hang onto the concepts of a Single Market & the Customs Union, bandying these names around primarily because they know the mantras even if they haven’t a clue what they mean!

Yet again I make the point that our politicians have little understanding of what the EU is or what it does or how and even less understanding of what its aims are. The lack of understanding amongst our politicians and MSM (MainStream Media) is quite staggering – what is even more staggering is their willingness to have signed Treatiers and agreements without reading them and even more astonishing without asking, let alone establishing under what laws and legal principles the agreements were founded and or enforceable!

It is my belief that to this day neither the media nor the politicians in Britain are aware that the Treaties and agreements signed were and are founded on EUropean Law and not British Law – Legal systems which in many ways are diametric opposites.

Is it any wonder then that now, when dissassociation is in contention negotiation is proving all but impossible – not only are the two sides divided by language but also by fundamental concepts of ethics, integrity and justice.

Roman Law is not only alien but the complete antithesis of British Law – in Hegalian philosophy of course the negation of the thesis is the second stage in the process of dialectical reasoning – little wonder the negotiations are proving a failure!

To take but one example: How can we possibly be on the one hand honouring the democratic wish of the majority of our electorate yet on the other be taking instruction on how we should treat any given region of these United Kingdoms – such a situation is a complete nonsense yet the EU believe it is in their remit under Roman Law to make such demands – How can that possibly be ethical or Justice in any meaning of the word in terms of British Law?

Now then let us get on with the task of leaving, seeking the best deal possible which in no terms make it possible to be answerable to the EUropean Courts, EU instruction or integration within either the Single Market or The Customs Union.

We could however continue our current membership of the EEA (European Economic Area) within EFTA (European Free trade Association) – a structure that permits negotiation of varied conditions to suit the member as with Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland minded that with Britain that would provide a block of more than 80 Million people – this would provide an ideal solution which if in the long term was found wanting could at least provide an interim status that would clearly work.

Minded of course of the opportunity to move forward to an even more comprehensive and custom built interface similar to that between Canada and the EU, or China and the EU or Mexico, America, India etc and the EU – none of which are members of the introspective, largely undemocratic, political, economic and increasingly militarised EUropean Union, yet manage trade on rational grounds without seeking to tell either side what the must or must not do, save in terms of specificly defined matters of standards in trade of goods and services.

If it is expedient for either side such an agreement can be defined as ‘No Deal’, but it will be honouring the democratic choice of the British peoples to Leave-The-EU, with no need for either parties and an ability to progressively and with integrity improve the relationship between Britain and the EU, where we have no interest or desire to dictate the politics, economics or structure of the EU just as they should not seek to influence or demand actions from Britain or whom we wish to trade with or in what manner or terms.

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<.
