This week we will leave our continued review of the Great Deception until next week. But last week I did a discussion on TWR with Dave Piper, Dave Thompson (SNP) , Jonathan Thame (Jubilee Centre) – should Christian leaders speak out about Brexit – and how should we do so? It was a fascinating discussion. You can hear the discussion by clicking on this link … Continue reading Should Christian Leaders Speak out About Brexit? TWR Panel.
Brexit Update: Is Brexit not getting boring? I think we all just wish they would get on with it…But I suspect after all the huffing and puffing we do not have politicians who have either the nerve, desire or courage to actually go through with it. (unlike the politician featured in todays chapter – see below). If we did then we would end up with … Continue reading The Great Deception 14 -No! No! No! The Fall of Thatcher
Before going on to Ch. 12 of The Great Deception – lets catch The Brexit saga rolls on and this week took another turn. After Mrs May’s Brexit agreement was roundly defeated by over 200 votes, this week it passed by a surprisingly comfortable margin of 16 votes. Except of course it didn’t because it was not the same plan. The amended plan would seek … Continue reading The Great Deception 13 – In A Minority of One
We return to The Great Deception – but before doing so, let us note where things currently are in the great Brexit debate. It appears as though the momentum behind a second referendum has stalled – with its advocates arguing amongst themselves – and the government seeming less and less likely to support it. The EU meanwhile is refusing to budge on the question … Continue reading The Great Deception – Part 12 – The Creation of a ‘European’ Identity.
Continuing our review series in which we attempt to make some sense of Brexit: Chapter 10 of The Great Deception is one of those chapters that revealed to me so much fascinating information that at the end I just wrote ‘Wow’…but before we get on to that here are some of the best articles on Brexit over the Christmas New Year Period. My favourite is this brilliant … Continue reading The Great Deception – Part 11 – The Awkward Partner…and Mrs Thatcher
Over Christmas and Boxing Day it was good to have an internet and social media fast (and before I get the comments – yes blog posts continued – they were scheduled from last week!)…Did I miss much? Apparently not – the Brexitmania continued – with Lord Adonis, Lord Foulkes and Alistair Campbell tweeting with all the fervour of religious zealots throughout Christmas. The SNP of … Continue reading Brexitmania and The Great Deception – Part 10 -The First Referendum.
Before we go on to learn from what happened in 1970-1973 (as you will see, the parallels are uncanny) let’s get up to date with what is happening this week. The bottom line is, that as in the early 1970’s, the EU is playing hardball and the UK’s political class are largely caving in and deceiving the British people. Theresa May has (I suspect through … Continue reading The Great Deception 9 – The Politicians Deceit and the Fishermen Betrayed
Before we go on to look at chapter six in The Great Deception – which is a fascinating insight into the formation of the EEC and Britain’s growing interest in joining up to 1961. Again the historical background really lets us get the bigger picture of what is going on today – speaking of which, the Brexit farce continues. Here are a few developments and articles that … Continue reading The Great Deception 7 – Merkel, Peoples March, Spectator Debate, Monnet and Engrenage
One of the difficulties in discussing is how many people just repeat myths they have heard as though they were facts. This weeks review of The Great Deception deals with some of those. For example the view that the EU was set up after the Second World War to preserve peace and it has been the primary reason for peace in Europe over the past 50 years. … Continue reading The Great Deception (Part 4) – Is the EU an American Creation?
The Brexit saga rolls on. This week Nicola Sturgeon demanded that the UK stay in the Customs Union (in effect the same as remaining in the EU – but without any say!); numerous panic buttons were hit as Project Fear was ratcheted up; and the attempt to stop Brexit was continued with Tory, Liberal, Labour and SNP Remainers upping their hysteria. It’s interesting how everything … Continue reading The Origins of the EU – Greek Workers, UK Remainers and Jean Monnet – (The Great Deception – Part 2)
