ONE glint of light in the darkness of the ongoing Brexit struggle for independence is that the British people (not of course the plutocratic elite who run the establishment) have not been fooled by the EU’s propaganda on Northern Ireland. A poll has shown that the public does not believe the EU’s ridiculous claim that they care about keeping peace in that troubled Province. The survey for the Centre for Brexit Policy tells us:
‘An overwhelming 57 per cent of people say that the EU’s insistence on checking goods destined for Northern Ireland from the mainland risks reigniting the Troubles brought to an end by the 1998 Good Friday Agreement after nearly 50 years of strife and bloodshed . . . ‘The poll . . . reveals deep public anxiety about the Northern Ireland Protocol (NIP) – a part of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement that gives Brussels the right to check goods flowing from the UK mainland into the Province because under the terms of the treaty, Northern Ireland remains in the EU’s single market.’ The poll follows significant discontent in Northern Ireland over the NIP in recent months, which has resulted in shortages of certain products in the shops, as well as reports of EU bans on exports of chilled meats such as sausages, and British soil and pets entering Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK. PM Johnson needs to know that the situation in NI is not a little local difficulty he can ignore and leave to peter out. His dreadful schoolboy joke to Mrs Merkel that ‘the wurst is over’ could not be more wrong. The NIP and the EU protection racketeers wielding it are pouring fuel on to a volatile situation. And the public knows it. EU propaganda however rains down, demands for the British to obey what they signed up to, to earn EU trust, to be sensible and sign up to EU regulatory alignments and so end Brexit, and so forth. Former Taoiseach John Bruton even said that UK resistance to EU micromanagement of NI trade and economy is ‘a menace’ – whereas the truth is clearly the reverse. Irish Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney says that the UK must keep close to Eire in all its plans and let them know our intentions, yet at the same time the EU, totally out of the blue and with no consultation with the UK, dumps 800 new rules on the UK. The EU, with Eire, is waging an economic war and a propaganda war, but the public sees through it. We must not forget the ruthless and medicine blockading carried out by this organisation on vaccines, even using Article 16 of the NIP to block the passage of vaccines into the UK. And now there is a threat to medical supplies getting to the Province, such is the sheer malice of EU coercion. We do know that the driving purpose of EU policy is to keep the UK as a useful satellite state, treasure island, a trade colony to quote the aides of Guy Verhofstadt. Adrian Hill’s exceptionally important Briefings for Britain article in 2018 on the German national plan up to 2024, divulged in Der Spiegel, spells out their official plan. I make no apology for a lengthy quotation:
‘The Army planners are convinced that Germany must look after its own security. An obvious start is to concentrate on binding together the inner core of Euro Zone countries, economically, politically and militarily. An outer ring of satellite economies, which includes us British, must be kept within the political and economic orbit of the Euro Zone and its political and economic sun, Germany. The scale of Germany’s reliance on these satellite markets is best measured by the lengths to which the German government goes to disguise the size of the country’s huge annual trade surplus – somewhere around 340 billion Euros according to the economists Professor Heiner Flassbeck and Friedericke Spieker in their recent report – helped enormously by the existence of the Euro as a currency inside which hides a very under-valued Deutschmark. According to Heiner Flassbeck one can reasonably argue that German workers pay for this huge surplus through a lower standard of living than if their money floated at its real worth. Control of markets and money, in my view, becomes essential for managing this export machine as it sucks the life from once thriving industries in almost thirty satellite countries. One prospect still makes them nervous. A successful Brexit. That’s why the ‘European Union’ is so desperate to keep us aligned – controlled by them for as long as possible into the future. ‘
Barnier has said that his aim was to force a deal on the UK so horrible as to make it rejoin the EU. The NIP is their major weapon in this project to end Brexit and sabotage it into a Brino. The British public is not being fooled, although our government does seem to be, judging by its persistence in keeping the NIP and not triggering Article 16 to end the crisis once and for all. Lord Frost is fighting the good fight but he seems a one-man band, the Cabinet Secretary Mr Gove has again and again supported a Brino and PM Johnson always issues robust rhetoric only to cave in totally at the end, as with ending, and not ending, Covid restrictions.
