Cameron’s EU Package: Not A Deal But A Few Turns In The Spin Machine

As we and almost everybody else predicted, David Cameron's deal to improve Britain's relationship with the EU is worthless. It changes nmothing, and can be vetoed once we have voted to stay in.

Cameron’s EU Package: Not A Deal But A Few Turns In The Spin Machine

No doubt the traitors and neo - fascists who think We The Punters would all be better of as serfs in a Federal European Superstate will over the next few months be hailing the little piece of paper Cameron brought back from the EU summit in Brussels as a great triumph.

One Cameronite has even echoed Neville Chamberlain's 'Peace in our time' by declaring that the deal will keep Britain in the EU but outside the Euro and the federalising push for a single European state will guarantee peace and security in Europe for the foreseeable future.

Does this shit-for-brains pillock not realise that ISIS jihadists, Volksfuhrer Merkel (most recently heard threatening economic sanctions against EU member nations who disagree with her) and the Turkish lunatic Erdogan who is finacing the ISIS terrorists by facilitating the buying their oil by Turkish gangsters (including Erdogan's son), laundering it through oil terminals on the Mediterranean coast and selling it into western markets (after creaming off a generous piece of the action).

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (one of Merkels closes allies) announced the threat of sanctions against other EU states

Dave's deal will change nothing, all it will do is commit us to accepting every piece of Marxist shit the ruling bureaucrats of Brussels decide to dump on us. And as we will be in the EU but outside their beloved single currency and not part of their dream of ever closer integration, you can bet they will get very creative in formulating gigantic, festering turds to drop on our heads.

And then, under the headline "Europe Disintegrates" The Daily Express reports the details of Hausfrau - Voklsfuhrer Merkel's is threat to impose economic sanctions against EU nations that refuse to comply with her diktat on 'refugee quotas' as she seeks to spread the rape and sexual violence epidemic her 'open doors' immigration policy has inflicted on the working and middle class people of Germany.

Because the main contributors to this blog, the founding old gits as we like to think of ourselves, though all former professionals, live in an industrial area of northern England we are no fans of Margaret Thatcher, but even so we found this interesting as several Cameronites who are too young to have really known her or what she did, have been trying to claim that were she alive and politically active, now she would vote to stay in the EU, we found this interesting.

Lady Thatcher’s Official Biographer Slams The Deal, Predicts Trouble Ahead:

Writing in The Daily Telegraph, Charles Moore has highlighted some of the problems David Cameron faces from his own party.

From now on, therefore, the internal pains of the Tory party on this subject will be brought into the open. As for us the voters, from today we will no longer have the agenda of the referendum controlled by Mr Cameron. For four months until the vote, his deal will lie on the table for us to look at and ask: “Is that it?”

None of this automatically means that the Leave vote will win. There are arguments, chiefly of fear, for Remain. You have heard them all before – the uneasy mixture of “It’s good to be among friends” and “They’ll be really nasty to us if we leave” – but many will still believe them to be strong.

Mr Cameron’s problem is like that of the conjurer who has turned up for the magic show with the hat, but forgotten the rabbit. He chose the deal as the base for his leadership of the Remain campaign, but has not secured that base.

To the extent that the deal tells us anything, it reminds us of things which Leave, not Remain, likes to point out. The row about child benefit, for example, has told voters, who beforehand did not know, that the benefit is paid to foreign residents even if their children are back home in Poland (or wherever). Yet the deal does not reform this abuse.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is supporting the IN camapign, has slammed the deal as a “sideshow”. He said in a press statement:

His priorities in these negotiations have been to appease his opponents in the Conservative Party. He has done nothing to promote secure jobs, protect our steel industry, or stop the spread of low pay and the undercutting of wages in Britain. Labour’s priorities for reform in the EU would be different, and David Cameron’s deal is a missed opportunity to make the real changes we need.

To understand the extent of the global government supporter Cameron's betrayal of the British people and British interests we need to remind ourselves of what he has promised us. This is what Cameron said he would set out to do

David Cameron's broken promises

David Cameron has always promised the British people he would win a host of concessions from Brussels that would convince them to vote to stay in the EU.

In his Bloomberg speech in 2013, when he offered to hold an in-out referendum on the issue, he was emphatic about reform and called for a full EU treaty renegotiation.

Here, we highlight some of his past promises to show the huge gap between what Mr Cameron said and the minuscule reforms he is likely to achieve — and which may still be voted down by MEPs...

New EU Settlement

‘We need a real choice between leaving or being part of a new settlement in which Britain shapes and respects the rules of the single market, but is protected by fair safeguards, and free of the spurious regulation which damages Europe’s competitiveness.’

‘Those of us outside the Euro recognise that those in it are likely to need to make some big institutional changes.’

British lion to roar

‘They (Brussels) want a federalist pussycat, not a British lion. It’s up to us to make sure that lion roars — because when it does, no one can beat us.’

‘We need fundamental, far- reaching change.’

‘At some stage in the next few years, the EU will need to agree on Treaty change to make the changes needed for the long-term future of the Euro and to entrench the diverse, competitive, democratically accountable Europe that we seek. I believe the best way will be a new Treaty . . . ’

Ineffective Brussels

‘We urgently need to address the sclerotic, ineffective decision- making that is holding us back.’

‘In the global race, can we really justify the huge number of expensive, peripheral European institutions?’

‘Can we carry on with an organisation that has a multi-billion-pound budget but not enough focus on controlling spending and shutting down programmes that haven’t worked?’

Bonfire of red tape

‘It’s neither right nor necessary to claim the single market requires the working hours of British hospital doctors to be set in Brussels, irrespective of the views of British parliamentarians and practitioners.’

‘We should have a clear imperative, which is that we need to bring back the powers over social policy and employment policy that are causing so much damage to British business.’

‘I want us to be pushing to exempt Europe’s smallest entrepre-neurial companies from more EU directives.’

No automatic access to benefits. ‘If an EU migrant’s child is living abroad, then they should receive no child benefit, no matter how long they have worked in the UK and no matter how much tax they have paid.’

‘We want EU job-seekers to have a job offer before they come here... if an EU job-seeker has not found work within six months, they will be required to leave’.

Strong terror laws

Said he wanted increased powers to strengthen Britain’s defences to ‘stop terrorists and other serious foreign criminals who pose a threat to our society from using spurious human rights arguments to prevent deportation’.

Promised to negotiate ‘a complete opt-out from the Charter of Fundamental Rights’.

Vowed to ‘limit . . . the European Court of Justice’s jurisdiction over criminal law.’

‘It will be a top priority for the next Conservative government to restore social and employment legislation to national control.’

On sovereignty ‘Power must flow back to the member states.’

‘It IS national parliaments which are, and will remain, the true source of real democratic legitimacy and accountability in the EU.’

‘We need to examine whether the balance is right in so many areas where the EU has legislated, including on the environment, social affairs and crime.’

‘We want national parliaments to be able to work together to block unwanted European legislation.’

Clearly the 'deal' falls way short of any of this, as UKIP leader Nigel Farage puts it, the concessions Cameron has obtained do not even amount to true changes, only tinkering around the edges of Britain's memberhip conditions.


EU Chief Warns of 'Implosion' as Trust in Europe Fades
What has the European Union done for us, as the Monty Python tream might have said has they made a movie about the idiocies of the European Union. With the EU close to collapse anyway, the outcome of Britain's in / out referendum is probably academic, but we Brits ave always been a bloody minded lot and some of us still care enough about the future of our contry we would like our descendents to be able to say, 'Yeah our country beat Hitler and it beat the bureaucrats too'

EU Chief Warns of 'Implosion' as Trust in Europe Fades
EU leaders show almost every day they are desperate for Britain to vote to remain in the EU, so why do they keep doing things certain to alienate patriotic Britons. It's bad enough that the idoiots in Brussels want to destroy European civilisation by allowing unrestricted immigration from backward cultures without admitting such backward countries as Turkey so that its 80 million Muslim inhabitans will be able to enter Europe freely.

Brussels Reaction to Dutch EU-Kiev Deal Vote Heats Up Brexit Issue

Dutch Referendum This Week Shows why We Should Leave The EU.
Few of you were aware probably that there is an EU referendum vote in The Netherlands this week. As usual with anything negative about the EU barely a word has been printed in the topic in mainstream media and the silence from our notionally unbiased national broadcaster The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has been deafening.

Massive Influx of Migrants 'May Start Civil War' in EU As Germanys immigrant crisis shows no sign of easing and nobody in Chancellort Merkel' s ruling coalition seems to have a clue how to deal with it, left and right wing politicians are starting to talk of the crisis dividing netions so deeply it could lead to civil war

RIP the British Steel Industry, murdered by The EU. Vote Leave
As the future of not just Port Talbot steelworks but british steelmaking hangs in the balance with Indian conglomerate Tata Industries deciding the fate, we reflect that (A) the latest disaster for manufacturing is the fault of the EU and (B) We've been here before with Tata, a steelworks and a carbon credits scam.

EU-funded BBC documentary on Obama sparks allegations of anti-Brexit bias As this is the ultra left wing BBC we are talking about, this news blog would go so far as to say the documentary is a sign of the national broadcaster's anti British bias.

Ex-Scottish National Party Leader Says Democracy Requires Mainstream Brexit Case
As it becomes clear the Cameron Clowns and Euronazis of Brussels between them can only offer lifes, misrepresentations and scaremongering to support their emotional desire to keep Britain in the EU and then make us part of a Federal European Superstate esxtending into Africa and the middle east, a spilt appears to be developing in the Sottish National Party as many senior figures think an 'in' vote would see Scotland regegated to irrelevance in Greater Germany.

Euro Uber Alles Eurogeddon European people turn against integration European Union boss defends secrecy Europe democracy E U on fast track to fascism Europe becoming a german superstate European human rights court defends right to rape and murder European dictator Schultz Cameron’s EU Deal Worthless. It Can Be Vetoed In European Parliament?

EU Bosses Fear Brexit Domino Effect
European leaders met for the first time today to discuss the deal reached over changes to the conditions of Britain’s membership of the European Union. Public opinion in member states has led to fears that an out vote may prompt other EU member states to follow Britain’s lead.

Cameron's EU Deal As Worthless As Neville Chamberlain's 'Peace In Our Time.'?
Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision. How they cast their vote will shape the future of the world’s fifth largest economy and the EU itself.

Obama’s intervention in UK politics triggers angry backlash Angry Britons have launched a petition calling for U.S. President Barack Obama to be prevented from speaking in the UK parliament on Britain’s forthcoming referendum on European Union (EU) membership.

Merkel Isolated As Europe Splits Over Refugee Crisis
With the UK Prime Minister David Cameron still desperately trying to convince his 'revised terms' of British membership of the EU are a really good deal, when in fact they will change nothing, our attention should shift to developments elsewhere in Europe.

Cameron Plays Deal Or No Deal In Europe
David Cameron, who was apparently up all night trying to make other European leaders understand why his country needs a better deal in order to poersuade the prople it is a good idea stay in the EU. Unless Cameron gets what will enable him to sell the idea of surrendering national sovereignty to a Federal European Superstate ruled by a committee of unelected bureaucrats in to the British public he will not campaign for the UK to remain in the bloc

EU Refuses to Block Eurozone Integration to Reach Agreement With UK
Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said at the E?U summit on British membership terms that the European Union wants to reach an agreement with the United Kingdom, but it is not prepared to compromise the banking union (financial integration) or the further integration of monetary union (UK being forced to abandon the pound join the Euro?) to achieve this goal.

Worlds Biggest Luxury Liner To Be An Immigtant Hostel?
Ocean Gala, a luxury cruise liner which when launched was the world’s largest passenger ship will be converted into a concentration camp floating hostel to house Sweden’s third world migrants. The only thing that may derail the deal with US Shipmanagers for floating migrant accommodation, would be failure to find a berth in any of Sweden’s large deep water harbours. Sweden’s open doors immigration policy has led to ...
