Brexit events

Tomorrow at 6.30 pm I am speaking at the OMFIF debate at the Institute of Civil Engineers in Westminster.

On Thursday I am speaking at a Thames Valley business breakfast at Bearwood Lakes at 8 am, and at a public debate in the Willink School Burghfield, at 7pm.

I have recently spoken at the PLSA, Thomson Reuters, Politeia,  and Variety Club debates. I have also given pro Brexit speeches in Wokingham Town Hall, in Shinfield, and in Henley Town Hall.

    I’d like to see a lot more of you on TV. (Not your fault, I know.)

    The best publicity for Brexit is David Cameron’s failure on migration. His deliberate winding down of Border Farce and now boat people making their way across the English Channel.

    If he had (or could) have made some effort on these things then we might not have even be having this referendum.

    I expect the news on the migration crisis to disappear from BBC headlines in the coming weeks.

    People are very VERY worried about it and Mr Cameron is showing us no leadership or sign that he gives a toss – probably because he doesn’t. Priti Patel is absolutely right on that.

    I see your duplicitous leader who will stop at nothing to get his way is presiding over attempted electoral fraud in voting guidance papers issued by Bristol Council, and the Electoral Commission are sending out voting papers to some EU citizens who are barred from voting. They say it is all a simple mistake – pull the other one – how many EU citizens are recorded as British?

    It won’t take you long to check this, see Guido to start with.

    It is good to hear that you have been so busy on our behalf, and so many thanks for your efforts.

    I watched the commemoration of the Battle of Jutland on TV today, and was reminded again of the suffering and sacrifice made, to enable us to determine our own affairs, and to be proudly independent. These occasions only strengthen my resolve to vote ‘Out’ .

      That was a joint commemoration with the Germans, who were then our enemies but are now our friends. That’s unless we say that we’d prefer not to join them on their wild ride to political union with other European countries, when they will go back to being our enemies and will do whatever they can to hurt us even if it also hurts them and others. At least, that is what the Remainders claim.

    That’s great. Try and get tomorrow’s speeches on youtube, then post links.

    Interesting JR you speak of your… Debates.
    It is an odd feature of the Remain Campaigners, as seen on TV, that they stand in front of audiences who all seem to have identical tee-shirts and anoraks with the Remain Camp logo in blood-red BEFORE their “debates” begin.

    Each nods and claps in unison as though a puppeteer is standing above them working their arms on legs with piano-wire. Most of them seem hardly old enough to vote and surely must have glued-on goatee beards and intelligent spectacles.

      Re your comment on puppets, they are presumably the obliging “bussed into marginal constituencies brigade” of election time fame i.e. rent a crowd – the ones whom Cameron/Feldman apparently chalked up on national instead of constituency expenses. A sham, I fear.

    We hear that local authorities have sent polling cards to EU citizens who are not eligible to vote in the referendum.

    The Electoral commission needs to order local authorities to annotate the electoral register sent to polling stations to ensure that those who have been sent polling cards in error are prevented from voting.

    On polling day the electorate needs an assurance that the necessary measures have been taken.

    Was this another Downing St measure to rig the referendum? From where did the error originate?

    We are rapidly reaching the point at which the electorate will neither believe nor accept a remain vote, and that means that the Government will have effectively lost the people’s consent to be governed. That cannot be allowed to happen. If removing Cameron from office is necessary to prevent it from happening Parliament needs to take immediate action.

      Also take am indelible pen to the vote. (pencil lead can be erased)

      Note: This is probably not needed if you intend to vote remain.

      Given the pro- remain bias we should consider the gloves are truly off. I certainly do not trust Cameron or the BBC or the EU or anyone beholden to them.

    With all the lying and cheating that has gone on from the Remainians for the whole of this “campaign” and now with postal votes being sent out to people who do not qualify, is there not some legal authority that can declare it unfair and press the reset button or do we just accept things that we would heartily condemn a third world dictatorship for?

    Hi John,

    Would you be able to come to Amersham/Chesham for a talk or hustings? Our local MP is not enthusiastic, despite wanting to leave the EU. We are doing a lot of canvassing and campaigning, but could do with a high profile EUsceptic making an appearance.

    Regards.
    Daniel

    It seems magic that so many outcomes of postal votes here and abroad appear either being the opposite emphasis of the main ballot station vote or/and in favour with the established Party in the constituency and ward.

    I hear that in the Austrian recent President’s election the “Far Right” won with those who had chosen to walk to the polling station and lost by quite a margin by those who had plumped for a postal vote even though the postal votes were predominantly older voters and not “Young Things” with Green ideological problems. One village recorded more votes for the Green/Independent candidate than there were electors on the electoral register.

    Postal voting is not trusted here or anywhere.

    It is to be hoped the European ballot cards sent out, as mentioned by other Commenters on here do not result in an even more unlikely outcome to the Referendum. The utter bias of our media for Remain is rendering anything but a Leave vote more than casually questionable.

    Just watched the Laura Kuenssberg on bbc2 and I think I must me going soft in the head but like the Jeremy Paxman interview last week but the BBC are not as bias towards the eu as I thought they were, there was one point in The programa were Cameron was saying we would be OK outside the eu then we a had Osborne saying armagadan if we leave, let’s just go for it because there’s a lot of stuff the dreaded eu as planned for Europe of which in or out we have no control, I’m British and want full control of who goven us and if we don’t like them can kick them out at a GE, Vote Out

    A lot of talks – well done – what were the responses like? Were there questions put to you after? Was it mostly in front of the converted? Any changes of mind?

    Reply Yes some came over to our side as a result of these meetings.

    It is being said that no way will Turkey join the EU for ‘many years/decades’ (they go quickly!) and we have a veto, which might or not be used but whoever thought that Turkey would ever get visa free travel to the EU any time soon?

      I don’t believe that the UK would be able to block a Turkish entry, say ten years from now. But isn’t the idea that we are voting not just for ourselves, but also for our offspring? In any case, no one will convince me that QMV may not be introduced.
