APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Whether pro or anti the EU, all should watch this.

The video below is just over an hour (1:09:30) and covers what will happen if we got out of Europe. The presenter used to be an UKIP member who wrote that awful 2010 manifesto and, as a reward, Cameron signed him up as a Conservative MEP. One wonders whether he was ever UKIP!

The video concludes that we would be better off as an associate of the EU such as Norway or Switzerland, but there is absolutely no need for that. Let's face it, we don't need to join or take part in anything because we are the EU's biggest customer. There is no way the Germans will refuse to sell their heavy engineering, their Mercedes, BMWs or Audis to us, and the French will certainly not refuse to sell their cheeses, wines and champagnes to us. Think about it. And, most of our exports to the EU actually go to Rotterdam for onward journeys to the rest of the world.

When de Gaulle vetoed our application to join the Common Market in January 1963, he said:
"England, in effect is insular. She is maritime. She is linked through her trade, her markets, her supply lines to the most distant countries. She pursues essentially industrial and commercial activities and only slightly agricultural ones. She has, in all her doings, very marked and very original habits and traditions. In short England's nature, England's structure, England's very situation differs profoundly from those of the Continentals." 
Now, the Video…
