Pommy bastards seem to be making the right decision on Brexit

The Pommy bastards seem to be making the right decision.

The decision over whether the UK remains inside the European Union could depend on whether young people shake off their apathy and vote in sufficient numbers on 23 June, a revealing opinion poll conducted for the Observer shows.

In a blow to David Cameron and the pro-EU camp, the online survey by Opinium puts the Leave side on 43%, four points ahead of Remain, on 39%. Some 18% of voters said they were undecided, while 1% refused to say.  

While most of the “don’t knows” said, when pushed, that they were leaning towards Remain, offering hope to the pro-EU side, the survey will serve as a wake-up call to leaders of all four main Westminster parties, who are urging people to back their calls for continued membership.

Above all, it will be deeply worrying for Cameron, who will almost certainly have to resign as prime minister in the event of a vote to leave. But it also adds to pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Only 47% of those asked said they identified him as being in favour of remaining in the EU, while 40% said they did not know his view and 12% believed he wanted to leave. Some 78% knew that Cameron wanted to remain in.

Government strategists and pollsters privately admit that the central problem for the Remain side is that its support for staying in the EU is strongest among young people, the group least likely to vote. Opinium found that in the 18-34 age group, 53% said they backed staying in, against 29% who wanted to leave. But only just over half (52%) in this age group said they were certain to actually go out and vote.

If they were smart they’d rid themselves of the porridge wogs at the same time. Unfortunately they were too canny at the last vote to ditch all their welfare.

    Great piece today in the Telegraph by Boris. Makes a number of very insightful comments that clearly illustrate the folly of the EU. Much of what he says could easily be used to describe the other folly known as the UN.

    Good stuff! Go the “Leavers”!

    Cameron’s so called Eu deal ;
    No treaty change
    EU law remains supreme
    No repatriation of powers
    £55M Gross handed over every day
    Open Borders…..etc.
    All in all, a big fat zilch! The discussions were just to deceive the electorate to vote stay and Cameron’s remuneration package ( more lucrative ) if the deception
    is successful.
    GO – Brexit – Leave

    I hope to God they vote leave. Poor old Brits – utterly shackled by the Eurocrooks in Brussels, that multicultural hellhole. What is amazing is that Cameron and his cronies are saying stay in! What in the hell? Churchill must be spinning in his grave.

    What has happened to Theresa May, a woman for whom I have always had the greatest respect? I’m not talking about the surprise appearance of the Home Secretary’s embonpoint during the Budget. Mrs May can wear what she likes, and if that turns out to be a va-va-voom red suit showcasing what you might call her oeufs en coquette, then good luck to her. Whether Mrs May’s breasts are falling out need not concern us, but her brains are a different matter.

    “Whether Mrs May’s breasts are falling out need not concern us, but her brains are a different matter”

    I’m afraid there is mounting evidence that the Home Secretary is taking leave of her senses. Yesterday, the former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor accused Mrs May of standing idly by while Operation Midland trashed the human rights of men unfairly accused by Scotland Yard’s “bizarre” inquiry into VIP child sex abuse. Mr Proctor, who was exonerated after a year’s investigation, was right to point out that what started as a police inquiry became a witch-hunt and a scandal on Mrs May’s watch.

    Then there are Mrs May’s increasingly barmy warnings on the EU. Only last week, she claimed that leaving the EU would put the UK’s security at risk. Catching criminals and extraditing suspects would be under threat if Britain votes Leave on June 23rd, she insisted. Faster than you can say Abdelhamid Abaaoud, jihadists mounted a lethal attack on Brussels, proving that Belgian security is so catastrophically inept it presents a clear danger to all of its European partners.

    May: Public should be ‘alert but not alarmed’Play! 02:20

    For instance, Mrs May’s Home Office has refused to reveal the extent of potential terrorist activity in Birmingham after reports that Mr Abaaoud, the Belgian ringleader of November’s Paris attacks, may well have visited the British city last year. Just a hunch, but I don’t think he was there to go shopping in the famous Bull Ring. Mr Abaaoud, whose hobbies included tying infidels to the back of a truck and dragging them to their deaths, seems to have entered the UK via a Kent ferry port, despite being a wanted terrorist and despite all those terrific EU criminal databases which Theresa is so convinced will keep us safe. British security services are watching scores of potential terror suspects in the West Midlands, but they can do zero to stop EU citizens dropping in to give indigenous nutjobs some handy hints on mass murder.

    Your columnist was among several people taken to task last week for pointing out that the appalling Brussels attacks had implications for our own safety. Not least because the de facto capital of the EU shamefully turned a blind eye to its flourishing jihadist community. David Cameron said it was “not appropriate” to score political points amid a terrorist outrage.

    I suppose the Prime Minister standing at the Great War cemetery at Pozières, at the start of this month, telling us that British soldiers died for Europe, is wholly appropriate political point-scoring, is it? What the PM and his Home Secretary are desperate to avoid is the British people joining the dots between the EU, with its free movement of terrorists (sorry, citizens) and the imminent threat of attack in our own country.

    Sir Richard Dearlove, our greatest living spymaster, tells Prospect magazine that Brexit would make Britain safer because it would be easier to control our borders and to deport terrorists. Theresa May knows that full well. She spent several frustrating years doing battle with the European Court of Human Rights, which refused to let the Home Office deport the hate preacher Abu Qatada. That gave Qatada even more time to poison the minds of impressionable young Britons while claiming £515,778 in legal aid, paid for by thee and me.

    “Belgium has Inspector Clouseau, split catastrophically into two, French and Flemish. And they’re not talking to each other”

    It’s not only terrorists who enjoy the benefits of EU membership. A damning dossier published yesterday by the Vote Leave group shows that EU rules allowed 50 of Europe’s most dangerous criminals into the UK, with 45 going on to commit crimes here, including rape and murder. Visitors from outside the EU need a visa to enter the UK and must declare a criminal record. EU law does not require member states to inform British authorities about a citizen’s criminal record, unless the offender is on the run.

    Take Victor Akulic, a Lithuanian. Akulic had committed several terrible crimes in his home country, including the rape of a seven-year-old girl. After moving to the UK without any difficulty whatsoever, he raped a 40-year-old woman and subjected her to three unbelievably vile assaults. (His barrister admitted that it was incredibly hard to get hold of information on earlier offences.) When Akulic appealed against his sentence, a scathing Judge Lady Justice Hallet demanded: “Do we have to take in anybody? Even if they have a conviction for raping a child?”

    Mrs May knows the answer. The answer is Yes. Generally, we do have to take in any EU citizen, no matter how ghastly, while we slam the door on primary school teachers from Auckland because that’s the only way we can keep the immigration numbers down. Madness.

    As for Mrs May and the Remain camp implying that, post-Brexit, other EU countries will refuse to co-operate with us on security matters, have you ever heard anything quite so ridiculous? First, why would the EU choose to stop sharing information with its most valuable source of intelligence? They get much more help from us than we get from them. Sir Richard Dearlove, as I know from personal experience, is far too much of a gentleman and a sweetie to be discourteous, so let me say it for him: Britain has GCHQ. Belgium has Inspector Clouseau, split catastrophically into two, French and Flemish. And they’re not talking to each other.

    Secondly, Britain’s Rolls-Royce security services, drawing on the Five Eyes alliance with countries we can actually trust (Canada, the US, New Zealand and Australia), collect more data on terrorists than most other European countries put together.

    Theresa May is aware of all of the above, but I regret to say the EU referendum has warped the judgment of some of our government’s clearest thinkers. She knows full well what is in the best interests of this country, as she has shown time and again, but now she seems to be putting party politics – or career – ahead of country.

    Message for the Home Secretary’s office: some lost marbles have been handed in. Could she please come and collect them before it’s too late?
