With the UK holding an EU referendum as to whether to exit or leave we have a look at the over eager £9.2million expenditure leaflet sent out by the conservatives and how effective it is at making your mind up as to whether to stay or whether to leave the EU at vote time.

I will note that at the time of recording the leaflet stated around 250thousand EU permanent migrants per year, however since recording this number is up above 333Thousand migrants from the EU alone from the year 2015 to the beginning of 2016. However this isn’t the true statistic on migration as around 750 thousand national insurance numbers have been issued to EU nationals during that time period alone, under the promise by the conservatives to reduce immigration below 100thousand things are clearly out of control, and up from around 40thousand per year before the conservatives came into power.

The leaflet focuses on stating how the UK has a special relationship protecting it’s borders and how we are different from other EU countries however in recent weeks daily politics and other news outlets all you ever hear is how we have to have open borders the same as the shengen area simply because we are part of europe, and it is very clear that under david cameron and the conservatives any “special relationship” held by the uk has been slowly stripped away as we become just another nation within europe as is constantly stated towards an ever closer union.

It would appear however that despite his assertions the prime minister himself is a closet brexiteer, wanting to remove the human rights act and enable a bill of rights which could strip many rights from both workers and the unemployed, which has previously been prevented by the human rights act, of course the queens speech enabled a beginning to this bill of rights, and people have stated that if this fails you there is always the human rights act to fall upon however leaving the EU this would no longer be the case, as cameron wishes this gone so if we leave we would not have these rights in our country, and there are many issues cameron wishes to pursue which are prevented by the eu for the protection of our citizens.

Being on the side of remaining serves two aspects for the conservatives, with a split bench following both sides they can claim victory regardless of the decision, with boris jhonson set to take over as prime minister should we vote to leave and still have conservative issues being pursued which are not for the best of the rest of the country, while if we remain cameron remains in charge and continues his reign of austerity, removing public services, being in control of councils proven to illegally withold benefits and delay applications in order to remain within ridiculously low budgets set by the conservatives, all the time reducing taxes for the rich where I have proven in europa documents the EU had demanded reform by the UK in the opposite direction, to reduce taxing upon the poor and increase taxing to the rich where no change had occurred for far too long. These issues along with many more were country specific recommendations towards a 2020 target set by the eu, which I refer to as europa2020. Other problems looming with europa2020 are the fact that we will never be able to repay the deficit by the deadline even with ridiculous and increasing austerity measures set by the prime minister effecting the poor in all forms whether working or looking for work, and those who can afford taxes and to reduce their luxury spending get further tax cuts which creates a truly unfair and divided nation.

Parliament petitions have passed the hundreds of thousands demanding a vote of no confidence in the conservatives however under laws passed by the conservatives themselves in their first act of coalition when elected the new law is that parliament must serve a fixed term and cannot be voted out in no confidence no matter how terrible their reign or how many electoral promises they fail to deliver upon, claiming they need a full 5 years to do things, and even if they fail after those 5 years they will blame previous administrations, even if that previous administration is themselves!

Tv interviews revolving around immigration point towards one clear aspect, whether we leave or not they state how useful to the economy european migrants are, which is under biased data as low paying jobs which would be taken by the unemployed of this country naturally born here and reduce unemployment in one fowl swoop seems to be ignored completely, and the other aspect they over dramatize is stating how we would be shutting out entrepreneurs or highly skilled workers which again isn’t the case, having a more selective process over who can live long term in the country to be a higher skill level than a basic worker would be beneficial and having taken “aptitude tests” which essentially check can you speak english, can you resolve an impossible quandary to prove you’re not an AI who explodes at a paradox (a future article), can you do basic maths, you might think well this is stupid of course anyone coming to this country and claiming benefits and looking for work can do that, I have seen too many people walk out stating they cannot speak english, hello we’re england if you’re living here to look for work that is pretty much essential skill number one, being able to speak the language.

The main thing any side would need to do in order to gain advantage would be to point out a control over immigration numbers, firstly being the leave campaign which could guarantee no more than 100,000 migrants per year as a hard limit rather than a “points based system” which could be abused and difficult to implement, while the remain campaign could promise much like the scottish referendum to leave the uk a reformed agreement with the EU to set a hard figure of 100,000 per year and regain our special status in the EU controlling the number of people coming the uk as we are not part of the shengen system, so being able to impose limits would be something which would be required and being able to negotiate these as a requirement for staying would give a great boost to the stay campaign solving the main issue of the debates without backlash and without losing the majority of the benefits of being inside the EU.

Personally I am finding it hard to decide but at present staying in the EU seems safest as the leave party will not do anything significant enough to reduce migration levels and will cause us to lose many protections and laws coming across from the eu with little to no benefit.

Since publishing jeremy corbyn made a speech to manchester highlighting many of the issues I raised and you should listen to his speech as it shows not only why we should stay in the EU and what we would lose, but also it shows why he should be the rightful leader of our country as he represents the common people, the working people, the disadvantaged and the disabled instead of the elite at the top who can afford to be taxed instead of those who cannot who face the deepest austerity measures to pay for those rich people to get tax cuts and benefit most from times of austerity. He was calm and decisive and spoke the truth without spin on the matter in a way that shows his leadership potential. I hope he gets to see a general election as he deserves to be prime minister rather than david cameron who lies and avoids questions during prime ministers question time instead goading the house and the speaker about how “nobody gets away with avoiding questions” while he does that very thing. It’s time for a straight politician who can reform the country for the good of the majority and make britain great again.
