  1. Just a minor point of order – it’s only the ‘Union Jack’ when it’s flying on a ship at sea. And that may specifically be only in the Royal Navy. Otherwise, it’s the ‘Union Flag’…

  2. Could I have a comment from the other side of the Atlantic about the fact that your European Affairs Secretary has threatened Britain with dire consequences should she endeavour to pull out of the EU or even renegociate. Big business here has weighed in after him.

    40 years ago we were taken into the Common Market, what we thought was a simple European Free Trade Area like the EFTA we had been in, by our prime minister Edward Heath.
    He knew all along that it would lead to the Marxist Totalitarian undemocratic monster that it has become today.

    It would seem now that behind it were globalizers like those who are threatening us today and internationalists of which Heath was one, even though his people were not.

    How do the British people and the other peoples of Europe ever break free from this Leviathon and re-assert their democracy and independence? It would seem that we are mere pawns in an empire controlled by banks and big corporations and voting fodder for people who espouse a political ideology which nobody shares. America beware!! We are coming up to the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Jack Kennedy. Rumour has it that it was the former that he tried to fight and lost. Who do we turn to for our freedom?

  3. The indications are that Heath was
    yet another bought politician, andhis masters were the Rothschild cartel, behind their usual cloak of secrecy of course. There is even rumour that Thatcher was bought. All
    politicians of MP and above should be made to expose their entire
    financial situations and prove it.
    And what secret societies they belong to.I won’t hold my breath.

  4. This would explain where Heath got all his money from. We always did wonder. I assume you were talking about the Bilderberg Group by the way?
