Those who still see politics as business vs government don’t understand how the world actually works:
A group of businessmen and retired mandarins are waging a behind-the-scenes propaganda war aimed at derailing moves to take Britain out of the EU. Appalled by the prospect of a vote to withdraw, they have formed ‘Business For New Europe’ to fight a public and private campaign to keep Britain in the union.
They are raising a multi-million-pound war chest to secure support from international leaders in the run-up to the vote which they now suspect is inevitable. Campaign: A group of businessmen and retired mandarins are waging a propaganda war aimed at derailing moves to take Britain out of the EU. They are lobbying world leaders to go public with warnings that Britain will become isolated economically and politically if it votes to quit the EU. They hope if enough of them speak out British voters will take fright and vote to stay shackled to Brussels.
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it. And notice that the greater part of the conquest of Britain by the EU has been done entire undemocratically.
“It will be the first national vote on Britain’s membership of the EU since 1975, with the latest YouGov poll suggesting the number who want to leave comfortably outnumber those who want to stay by 43 per cent to 35 per cent.”
If the lessons of Greece and Italy mean anything, it is that the British will lose their right to vote before they will be permitted to leave the Eurofascist union. The first step was to try to avoid the referendum. The second step is to try to see it fails. The third step will be to try to call it off for one reason or another. And the fourth step will be to abandon all pretense of obeying the will of the people.
The best hope for the British is that the economy continues to worsen, causing the corporate elite to become more focused on survival, golden parachutes, and bailouts than imposing their political vision on the nation.
