minimum-wage-poverty

An excellent article from the Guardian Money editor on why he is voting Leave. The arguments of the Remain side that Brexit will hit the poor are based on the bogus claim that Brexit will trigger a recession. What they ignore is that unlimited cheap labour destroys the need of low pay employers to compete for workers by offering more than the minimum wage. Furthermore, the Common Agricultural Policy and the Common External Tariff artificially inflate food prices taking a huge chunk out of the budget of the poorest. VAT on household fuel bills cannot be abolished inside the EU.

NO REFORM FROM WITHIN

British voters have to know there will be no kind of any negotiation. We have concluded a deal with the prime minister. He got the maximum he could receive, and we gave the maximum we could give, so there will be no kind of renegotiation.

– EU Commission President Jean Claude Juncker

NO EU TARIFFS FOR UK AFTER BREXIT

“Imposing trade barriers, imposing protectionist measures between our two countries – or between the two political centres, the European Union on the one hand and the UK on the other – would be a very, very foolish thing in the 21st century. The BDI would urge politicians on both sides to come up with a trade regime that enables us to uphold and maintain the levels of trade we have”

Markus Kerber head of the BDI (German CBI)

IF WE REMAIN WE WILL JOIN THE EURO

 

There will come a time when Britain will join [the Euro].

“[T]he English intelligentsia are Europeanized. They take their cookery from Paris and their opinions from Moscow. In the general patriotism of the country they form a sort of island of dissident thought. England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality. In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings. It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box. All through the critical years many left-wingers were chipping away at English morale, trying to spread an outlook that was sometimes squashily pacifist, sometimes violently pro-Russian, but always anti-British.”

– George Orwell (1941)
