Who remembers FUD? The Establishment have taken over from IBM on this art!

I don’t understand

The authorities are pushing how bad a complete break with the EU will be every single day. There are a few things they just cannot seem to comprehend.

These arguments of theirs are the same arguments put out before the “vote” -- they even got Barak Obama to come over to tell us how leaving would be bad for Britain.

In addition, Mark Carney of the Bank of England, the CBI, Richard Bransom and other leaders of Industry drummed into us how bad leaving the EU would be. And, to crown it all, David Cameron sent out a glossy fourteen page booklet to every home in the UK reinforcing all this fear, uncertainty and despondency.

In the sixties, this was known as FUD and was coined by IBM to persuade company buyers to only buy IBM computers. Until Brexit, IBM were the acclaimed masters of FUD.

However, 52% of the British people who took an interest in their country still voted to leave.

Now, over the two years since the referendum, not only the 52% but most of those who voted to remain in the EU are learning that all those “stories” were false, or to use modern parlance, fake news.

Now those same people have started up the discredited stories of FUD (fear, uncertainty and despondency) to persuade us to remain in the EU, should the establishment manage to get their aim of a second referendum.

Our Prime Minister is now well known as someone who has no understanding of negotiations, as she allows the EU negotiators to walk all over her and Britain. We know she was 100% remain when Home Secretary, and we must now consider whether she is really putting Britain’s best interest forward in these negotiations.

A lot of the British public were persuaded to vote remain through “fear, uncertainty and despondency”. The question to ask is, how many of those people who fell at the first hurdle would know now not be taken in by Establishment lies? Would they now vote to leave?

If just one in five were wise enough to see through the propaganda, that would mean the 52% would be increased to over 60%. But, personally, I think the British public are a lot wiser than the Establishment give them credit for and the number could be much, much higher.

Please send a link to every remainer you know!
