I responded recently to a questionnaire issued by Open Britain principally Ann Soubry MP and Chukka Ummana. I took issue with them over their “roll over” procedures. The following is a pertinent paragraph from their response, which I quite frankly find hard to believe. I have responded to this email with a series of question, listed below, which I trust they will give some thought to and make an appropriate response.
“Our judgement, and indeed the judgement of the majority who responded to our consultation, is that there is a more immediate task at hand. We have a Government who claims ‘Brexit means Brexit’, but in truth has no idea what Brexit means – for families, businesses, universities or communities. We have to shape that outcome, so we have a close and constructive relationship with Europe, not a distant and destructive one, and we need to create a culture in which pro-Europeans such as us feel able to make the positive and patriotic case.”
Thank you for your response to my questionnaire however I do have some questions for you which I list below.
I will start with what we know.
Why did Teresa May, whilst Home Secretary, withhold part of the report prepared by her office listing the benefits of immigration? This report was prepared before the referendum. Has this matter been raised in Parliament?
Why is Teresa May making immigration the main issue together with free movement? She is aware that free movement is not on the table in any negotiations. EU leaders have made this abundantly clear.
Why have Teresa May and Liz Truss not condemned the horrendous spike in racial violence. Have questions been asked in the house?
Why did Liz Truss, Home Secretary, fail to condemn the Daily Mail for it’s unprecedented assault on the high court judges? This was an attack on the law of the land and our democracy.
Why has there been no statement from Teresa May on the daily disasterous financial news? The latest being that Lloyds of London an establishment of some 328 years moving some of it’s base abroad. This was followed by a warning from the Japanese they too would move their banking activities. This followed another announcement from the insurance industry that it too is looking to move.
Why is Teresa May ignoring the CBI? Britain is a trading nation and has been for centuries. It was what has helped mould and create wealth in the UK. There have been reports of small companies going to the wall. The latest being Rimmington Biscuits in Wigan which has laid off 99 workers. I know Wigan voted out but to lose your job just before Xmas is tough. Have you or anyone from Open Britain talked to them? Len McClusky is blaming immigrants. The parent company here is Dutch!
To continue with what we don’t know:
Why are the press barons so anti EU? These specifically include the owner of the Express Richard Desmond UK domicile, the owner of the Daily Mail Lord Rothermere domiciled in France, the owner of the Sun Rupert Murdoch domiciled in the US and finally the owners of the Telegraph the Barclay Brothers domiciled in the Channel Islands. So what is it these enormously rich individuals want?
I believe there is a sinister underlying issue here. Immigration is a blind and Teresa May is rabble rousing to cover what is really happening. I firmly believe enormous wealth is behind all of this and as such I remain committed to fighting it.
However I am willing to listen. For your information I am posting this on varous Pro-European FB pages and circulating it to the reputable press.
