Sing Hallelujah! The wicked witch is dead. The anti-democratic super-state, into which we were taken in 1973 (fittingly, without a vote being cast) thanks to Labour rebels providing Tory PM Ted Heath with his majority, is no more.

At least for us. Though I doubt we will be the last to leave the failing fading cluster.

Leading Labour rebel Roy Jenkins, the deputy leader of the Labour Party, former chancellor, former home secretary, later president of the European Commission, was dumped on his ample backside out of Parliament in 1987 by me. It was my greatest victory.

Without Jenkins and his 80 fellow apostates Britain would never have joined the cursed cluster, because the Conservatives – then, as now – contained enough of the patriotic bourgeoisie to stop the globalist prime minister and yachtsman Heath. Our membership of the Common Market, thus born in treachery, sailed ever deeper into public rejection.

Britain was always half-in, half-out of the EU. No power on Earth could have dragged us into the single currency, and the only way we could be dragged into the single market was by late-night parliamentary chicanery – against which, under the leadership of the late Tony Benn, I was fully engaged. None dared offer a referendum on what represented a qualitative change in membership, from being part of a common market to membership of a Union, ever wider, ever deeper.

Fittingly, the peoples of the EU member states were never consulted over this shift; those who dared to demur were forced to vote again until they came up with the right answer. The project – effectively the liquidation of the nation-state and the creation of a European Empire – had not only no democratic legitimacy, no democracy within its decision-making processes, but required its members to sign up in advance to an unalterable neo-liberal model of capitalism carved into the very pillars of its constitution.

No state intervention in defence of strategic industries, no public sector procurement preferences, no fiscal deficits beyond that which suited the European Central Bank, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of Germany. No public ownership of natural monopolies like rail, mail, water, electricity and gas, every one of which had to be made happy hunting grounds for the privateers and buccaneers of globalised capital – Sir Richard Branson being the poster boy.

In our 47 years of membership, Britain lost its coal, steel, car, truck, bus, motorcycle, shipbuilding, ship repair and railway workshop industries, and much more besides. All in exchange for the fools’ gold of the casino economics of the City of London, the devotion to which almost destroyed the country in 2008. Germany was to be the industrial power, France the agricultural, Britain the financial. This all led to the desertification of post-industrial Britain and the mounting anger which swept EU membership away in the Brexit referendum.

I was, and always will be, proud to have been at the front of the fight for Brexit in the 2016 referendum. But unlike others in that leadership, I believe that Brexit is a necessary – but not sufficient – condition for the building of a better Britain. Regaining our national sovereignty without putting it to good use would be next to pointless. Equally, swapping EU domination for American domination would be worse than pointless. Becoming the 51st state of the USA, the worst state of all.

We now can and should rebuild Britain as an industrial and trading nation of the first class. ‘Made in Britain’ must become brand new again. All of our people capable of being so must be put to meaningful work as the process of sucking the youngest, brightest, and best from their homes and families in eastern and central Europe comes to an end. The low-wage, cheap-cuts British economy must be transformed into a high-wage, high-quality, educated, cultured and knowledge-based future. We must bear no ill-will to anyone, invade, occupy and sanction no-one. We must be a broker of peace and conflict resolution, no longer the auxiliary we were in Iraq and Libya, and so many others.

We must remake a real Commonwealth; we share language, culture and history with literally billions of people there. We can build Jerusalem in this green and pleasant land. But only if we resolve to.

BREXIT – Deal or No Deal It Is the Issuer of Britains Currency Which Will Decide Britains Fate. The Queen and Britain are stony broke save for that which the foreign owned non national Bank of England provides. The Crown City of London wherein is situated the Bank of England is not a part of Britain nor the EU. The queen requires permission to enter. Except for a handful of nations, Bank owned corporations have administrators called governments running the worlds economies. Bank law is the Law of the Sea/Statute law/Admiralty law. The queen has jurisdiction over the Law of… Read more »

Agreed, all they have done is swap out the middle management, the victory is symbolic. But for now at least, we must celebrate what victories we can. I am with Galloway, every avalanche begins with one rock.

Oh dear – more drivel about the Germans in Buck Pal. I suggest you check your facts before spouting. Liz & Co are worth over £1 billion & rake in £300 million a year from the tax payer. That UKania is run as an Oligarchy is not news…it always has been run by the richest few.

terryindorset – you say Liz & Co are worth over £1 billion & rake in £300 million a year from the tax payer. So, for how long could she run Britain on that paltry amount?

Just as every country has a right to be a free and independent nation, so does each and every individual deserve the right to be free of being dominated by others, if they are harmless in there actions.

Problem is, to prove the harm in it, planet earth was designed to be an intelligence dictatorship.

“planet earth was designed to be an intelligence dictatorship.”
Looks like Ellis is finally coming out of the closet. Some of us had his number from day 1. Lots of neo-fascists on here now, there was a huge influx starting with the Soleimani assassination.

I wish someone would explain to me what the border problem in Ireland is. I live on the Franco-Swiss border and we cross back and forth all the time. In fact in the 1980s I lived in France and worked in Switzerland (as do masses of other people from the countries around Switzerland) and the smaller customs posts were often unmanned. So where is the problem with the Irish border? I just don’t get it.

Olivia Kroth

Right, Diana. I also live in France, rather close to the French-Swiss border, and cross back and forth without any problems. I have a EU passport but Switzerland is no EU country. They do not even check my passport when I cross the border. People cross back and forth as they wish. Some countries make problems where there should not be any. Making an elephant out of a mouse ….

Try the novel Trinity, by Leon Uris.
N. Ireland is a bastard son of the most cynical Brit Empire.
An industrial heartland of Empire, the poorest-paid protestant workforce in Europe were maintained by the threat of the destitute catholic population.
Nowadays the border only matters if politicians or other psychopaths want to create some trouble.

The UK has been a Bankster/Royalty partnership since 1694. With the Charter for the Bank of England, the ‘Royal’ debt of £1,250,000, of King William of Orange, was transferred onto the shoulders of the Brit public, creating the National Debt. William of Orange, a Dutch protestant, was maneuvered onto the Brit throne after ‘European financiers’ funded Cromwell in the overthrow of the original Brit Crown. Fractional Reserve Banking, the biggest fraud in the world, started, on a national scale, 1694 also. Book, by WWII Canadian naval intelligence officer William Guy Carr, Pawns In The Game, 1955.

I wonder if William Paterson University of New Jersey was named after former pirate on the high seas and the first Governor of The Bank of England – William Paterson?

I have that pdf of Carrs book saved to my hard-drive, but haven’t got to it yet. I really need to read that.

I am finding it difficult to believe George Galloway said that.  Most of the bad things he says the EU did were actually done by Thatcher and her monetarist experiment.  He must know that.

“..the UK’s new found freedom to make trade deals with the world as it wishes as a sovereign nation.” This is a puzzle. Which countries can we now trade with that we don’t already trade with? What goods or services will we be selling them that we don’t already sell them? I can’t help wondering whether Johnson and Trump have a secret deal to sell Supertech to the world. Trump does seem to believe the ‘aliens’ have given it to him.* And Johnson’s behaviour suggests he has an ace up his sleeve, or thinks he does. *The aliens claim to… Read more »
