It is a year since the Referendum and the economic events etc. around Brexit are clearer. What Remain voters say:
“Peace in Europe is due to the EU”
Whether or not Peace in Europe was due to the EU we can now see it had nothing to do with whether the UK should Remain in or Leave the EU. The EU has not broken up after the British decision to leave and the remaining 27 countries are still keeping the peace in Europe. We now know Brexit has almost nothing to do with keeping the peace in Europe (see note 1).
“Only racists support Brexit and I am Anti-Racist”
Few if any of the issues around Brexit, even the issue of migration, were racist (migration is about fellow Europeans occupying UK jobs, population density, housing etc. etc.). The UK did not suddenly elect a UKIP or BNP government after the referendum and indeed, support for what is called the “right” in UK politics collapsed. Although there was a spike in racist reports after the referendum these returned to pre-referendum levels within 2 months.
Many Remain voters are still inflated with the idea that they are holy because they support Peace and Anti-Racism and they have not spotted that the EU and UK are still at peace and still have the same laws and attitudes about race after the referendum. This is because being holy had nothing to do with the referendum.
(The Racist and Peace in Europe arguments were spread during the referendum by PR companies in an attempt to divide the campaign into “holy” Remain versus “evil” Leave. The arguments are now known to be irrelevant to Brexit).
“The pound has fallen because of Brexit!”
The pound has indeed fallen, but not because of Brexit. The UK has an ongoing Balance of Payments Crisis (see Single Market: good or bad for UK? ). No-one in the broadcast media was moaning about the larger fall in the pound that happened in the 18 months before the referendum as a result of the Balance of Payments Crisis. Don’t believe this? See Raw data here
The pound fell more in 2014-15 than it did in 2016-17 but the media said nothing. The continuing fall in the pound since 2014 is due to the persistent Current Account Deficit of the Balance of Payments:
“A persistent current account deficit could lead to a sudden adjustment in capital flows or depreciation of the exchange rate, with adverse consequences for UK financial stability.” Bank of England
“Inflation is terrible because of Brexit”
Inflation rates in the UK are not far from the target value of 2% per annum. Prior to the referendum economics journalists were bemoaning the low inflation rates and spreading fears of deflation. The recent rise in inflation is a global phenomenon. Don’t believe this? See raw data here
Countries are printing money to increase government ‘funding’ of the economy and to stop a dangerous deflation that happened in 2015-16.
“Economists say Brexit will wreck the economy”
They don’t say this any more! Remoaners are out of date. Don’t believe this? See raw data here
(See Review of Remain Predictions)
If you were a Remain voter you should be getting worried that so many of the “truths” you are being sold by the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Guardian and other Remain supporters are lies. Especially when they all run “fact-check” and other propaganda services. Don’t believe this article? Check the links to the original data for yourself.
“No-one voted to leave the Single Market”
The Single Market was called the Common Market until 1993, when the EU renamed it. Don’t believe this? See data source. Most Leavers were voting to leave the Common Market. What you should ask is why are the broadcast media failing to tell you that the “Single Market” is the “Common Market”?
“Without the Single Market (Common Market) trade will collapse”
The UK is undergoing a severe balance of trade crisis with the EU but trade with the rest of the world is buoyant:
Don’t believe this? See Balance of Trade in Goods and Services EU 28, Balance of Trade in Goods and Services NON-EU 28 and Single Market: good or bad for UK?
This trade deficit with the EU is partly causing a balance of payments crisis which is affecting the pound and damaging the whole economy:
“… a reduction in the current account deficit from its current record [peacetime] levels will be important for any government wishing to claim that the UK is making a balanced and sustainable economic recovery.” See Parliamentary Report to confirm this.
“Nationalists are all racists”
This is just a slogan. Those who lead the Internationalists have promulgated a belief amongst their followers that Nation States are nothing more than reservoirs of racism that elevate their own ethnicity above all others. The truth is very different, Nations are organised groups of people who operate an economy and social system based on a particular area of land. They have cultures and economies that are usually dynamically adapting to local conditions and to the relationship between the locality and the world at large. Nations are the diverse socio-economic organisations that are essential for the flowering of humanity. Without Nations most differences will disappear. Independent Nations are a “good thing”: they saved the world from the ideology of fascism in the 20th century. Few people seem to realise that WWII was a battle between the Allies and the Axis, the Axis being much of Europe, including Vichy France, which supported National Socialism. (See Axis Powers). WWII was just not a battle against Germany but a fight against a whole political system.
The true racism is the desire to destroy the diversity of nation states because of fear.
Are Remain Voters Stupid?
Given that Remain voters will still be able to get work permits or temporary work permits to work in the EU, the economy will not collapse after Brexit, supporting your own fellow citizens is not racist etc. why do people support Remain?
Those who still support Remain are certainly more gullible than Leave voters. Most are younger voters who have been indoctrinated and believe the lies told by the broadcast media and teachers operating within what were pro-EU guidelines. They bask in the idea sold to them by Remain Journalists that they are clever and Leave voters are stupid when all the Remain arguments are demonstrably false.
Did you know that the Remain campaign was orchestrated by a group of foreign banks? See Funding of the StrongerIn Campaign
Note 1: Peace in Europe
As late as 1993 there were over 50,000 British troops in Germany (See British Army of the Rhine) at which time the USA had over 100,000 troops in Germany. Prior to the 1990s the numbers were considerably higher. There is no chance that war could have broken out within Europe between 1945 and 1993.
