Britain’s Independence

To the citizens of Great Britain:

Does July 4 mean anything to you?

Probably not.

How about July 4, 1776?

Does that mean anything to you?

If you are a student of US history, you will know that July 4, 1776 is our independence day here in America.

What are you may not know is that July 4, 1776 is your independence day also.

Not only is it your independence day, it is the independence day of all people around the world who suffer under the tyranny of a fool who wears a crown.

On that wonderful day, July 4, 1776, common people mustered the courage to defy the fat fuck, King George.

Of course, these commoners thought they were fighting for American independence alone, but they were also fighting for their cousins in Great Britain although they may not have realized such.

Once the fat fuck was defeated, so were you liberated also.

Perhaps not physically, but spiritually.

It still took some time for things to get better in Great Britain, but they did get better.

Slowly.

You still had to live under the reign of the tyrant monarch, Victoria the Whore, for nearly a century, but in time the pig elite from Eton and Oxford could not hold back your liberation.

Your cousins in America, unshackled from the lords, dukes and earls, were able to progress and make a better life for themselves than they otherwise would have enjoyed.

Your pig elite recognized that they would have to make some concessions as people from your homeland could not escape fast enough.

That is why life improved for you.

Of course this did not stop the whore queen and her henchman, Cecil “Pig Bigot” Rhodes, from trying to bring America back into the fold of the evil monarchy.

They succeeded. The cocksuckers at Harvard line up to pay homage to your Queen, Elizabeth the Clueless.

I know that you may think that today’s monarch, Queen Elizabeth, is a figurehead without power, but unfortunately she is much more than that.

Queen Elizabeth is a focal point, the rallying point, the essential glue that holds criminal Corporate Britain together.

It has always been that way.

The entire system of peerage exists as a cement to enable the corporate crooks of Britain to cling together as a united forced so as to rape the world.

And that they have done in spades – all in the name of free trade and looking out for your best interests, of course.

Free trade benefits everyone is their credo.

Veto.

Your elites conned you in primary education, and through the BBC, that Britain was a great empire and that you were able to share in that greatness.

But you did not share in that greatness.

They say that the sun never set on the British Empire. Unfortunately it never rose on the slums of London.

You did not share in the wealth at all.

When you look at television programs like Downton Abbey and you see how Lord Grantham lives in comparison to regular people, you can easily see that the British Empire existed for the elites, not for you or your ancestors.

When you read Oliver Twist, you can see the horrors of 1800s Dickensian England. This is what your ancestors lived under.

This is what today’s queen is all about. This is what Victoria the Whore was all about. This is what Cecil “Pig Bigot” Rhodes was all about.

This is what Eton and Oxford are all about today.

This is what Pig Boris Johnson is all about.

You’ve heard the stories of Pig Boris smoking a roll of money in front of a homeless person.

This is what he is. This is what the elites are.

But you have been liberated. On July 4, 1776 your cousins, distant cousins, stood up to King George and defeated him.

You will have to do that again.

Eton, Oxford, the peerage system, and the monarchy must be pulverized into dust.

The Queen, her family, the rotten members of the peerage system, and the financial criminals who operate within the City of London, must be stripped of their possessions and compelled to clean toilets in the cheesiest Motel 6 for the remainder of their lives.

Sincerely,

American Traitors

I would like all of you to watch the movie Oliver which of course is based upon the book Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.

Or, you can always read the book.

What you are seeing there is the cancer of poverty that was 1800s England.

That’s the way it was.

That’s the way criminal Corporate Britain treated its own citizens.

We call it Dickensian England.

Now, I want you to look at the show Downton Abbey.

I want you to look carefully at Lord Grantham‘s mansion.

That’s the way post-Dickensian England was.

That’s how criminal Corporate Britain treated its own citizens. It was a little better but not by much.

The rich lived in splendor; the poor ate dog food.

This disparity of wealth was built upon free trade, free trade instituted by criminal Corporate Britain.

Criminal Corporate Britain raped the world.

They raped the people of China. They forced them to purchase opium because the Chinese didn’t want to buy the shitty pots and pans from Manchester.

Criminal Corporate Britain raped the people of India. They subjugated them for centuries. They starved them to death by mismanaging their farms and food supplies.

They tricked many illiterate Hindu people to sign a document with a thumbprint which relegated them to indentured servitude so that the British elites could work them to death on their slave plantations in Fiji.

So noble those British elites, eh?

That’s why you see people from India in South America and islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

The Hindu people didn’t get there by sailing there.

Criminal Corporate Britain enslaved them, shipped them there and worked them to death.

Queen Victoria was the rallying focal point of criminal Corporate Britain. She was not a figurehead at all. Her presence was the essential glue that held that criminal cartel together.

The Queen, when she was not raping Indía, was brutalizing the peoples of Kenya and Ireland.

The Queen, a greater mass murderer than Mao, Hitler and Stalin, starved the people of Ireland to death. Her criminal crony’s conventional wisdom was that the Irish had brought starvation upon themselves by reproducing too much. They thought the hidden hand of God was dispensing divine justice to the Irish.

Any Irish who rebelled against the Queen’s wisdom were shipped off to penal colonies in Tasmania and Australia. That’s how Australia got founded.

Now, with all this criminality, you would think that the citizens of criminal Corporate Britain would have thrived. But they did not.

The nation ruled by Queen Victoria was a criminal empire, and the people knew it.

They say that the sun never set on the British Empire. Well, it never rose on the slums of London.

The people of England couldn’t get out of England fast enough. The immigration rates into the United States from England during the 1800s were staggering.

To keep their criminal enterprise going into the 20th century, criminal Cecil Rhodes set up the Rhodes scholarship to rope Americans and other dopes around the world into Corporate Britain’s criminal enterprise.

One of his goals was to bring America back into the fold.

He succeeded.

Suckers at the Ivy League bought into Cecil the Bigot’s bullshit. They still do.

Bill Clinton bought into this nonsense as have many others such as EJ Dionne, Michael Kinsley and George Stephanopolous.

Shame on them.

Harvard University bought into this nonsense in full. They cozied themselves up to criminal Corporate Britain and admired them.

This is one principal reason why Harvard University is so dangerous today. Harvard University is not a truly American university anymore.

It is a criminal university that sidles up to criminal Corporate Britain and their ways. Harvard University now rapes the world along with Oxford and criminal Corporate Britain.

The people at Harvard are are no longer American as our Founding Fathers envisioned an American should be.

Harvard revealed its true colors when they invited criminal Prince Charles to speak at its 350th anniversary.

America was built for the little man, not the big man.

Harvard University and its graduates scoff at this vision.

They brag, they strut, they celebrate themselves.

Harvard University is a traitor to the United States of America.

Harvard University is a traitor to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Harvard University is a traitor to the Founding Fathers and the decency in which they believed.

Harvard University is a traitor to God.

Harvard University must be relegated to the dustbin of history.

Harvard University will enslave the people of the United States of America. They will rape the world. They will return us to Dickensian England.

Walk away from Harvard. It is a smallpox virus, an Ebola virus, and a COVID-19 virus all wrapped up in one.

Shun John Harvard and his filthy, dirty school.

Sincerely,

A New Strain

Currently there is a new strain of COVID-19 moving across the United Kingdom.

For that reason the devious or hapless Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has shut the United Kingdom down again.

This lockdown is worse than the last.

I expect we will see this here in the United States as events in the two countries commonly parallel each other.

THEY, the all knowing THEY, say that this strain of virus is more contagious than the original COVID-19. What they don’t say is why. They just say that it is.

Well, I’m a skeptic, and I need to know why.

I’m thinking that our governments are lying again.

I suppose it is possible for a virus to have greater invasive speed into the respiratory epithelium than another virus.

I suppose it is possible for a virus to have certain tricks up its sleeve which make it more amenable to evading the immune system.

The problem with this approach is that any such mechanism still depends upon people interacting with each other.

People interacting with each other is going to be the rate limiting step.

Now, how is it possible for a virus to transmit faster than the original virus when everyone is already in some type of lock down?

Remember, the people of the UK are in a greater state of lockdown then they were eight months ago.

Plus more of them are accustomed to washing their hands and using hand sanitizer.

So how is it possible for this virus to transmit faster?

In my mind it isn’t possible. It’s just another example of the government relying on people’s lazy minds in order to spread its nonsense and propaganda.

As we said before, the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom are controlled by the same criminal cartel who have an agenda.

Their agenda is fascism.

They want to wipe out as many small businessmen as possible. They want everyone to be an employee of their giant corporations so that they can control people more easily.

The last thing they want are independent businessmen with money who might use that money to oppose their rule.

They see us, the small operator, as a threat to the planet even though it is they through their corporate products that have polluted the Pacific Ocean, polluted the Baltic Sea, polluted the rivers of Indonesia, and polluted the rivers of India.

They see us, the small operator, as a threat to wage equality even though it is they who have exploited and impoverished the peoples of Southeast Asia by paying them a grand total of six dollars per 13 hour workday.

They see us, the small operator, as a threat to wage equality, even though it is they who have enriched themselves en extremis by shipping our jobs out to China.

So to accomplish their goal of fascism and the universal basic income, which will produce poverty that will put Kolkata to shame, they will exaggerate the COVID-19 virus with half-facts and Nazi junk science.

Turn off your brains. This virus transmits faster. It is more virulent.

Now, today, THEY have not shown that this virus is deadlier. Nor have they shown that this virus will kill the young to the degree that it kills the elderly.

So if it does not, then why are we taking the same approach that did not work before?

If a virus can mutate in the face of a lockdown, in the face of a facemask, in the face of handwashing, then what is the point of doing any of these measures?

Of course, to the thinking individual, there is no point.

A rational person would conclude what every species on the planet has concluded since the beginning of time: unless we are dealing with a mortal threat to all people, the solution is for people to get along with their every day lives while protecting those who are most vulnerable.

There was no Louis Pasteur for cockroaches.

There was no Louis Pasteur for humanity 10,000 years ago.

Yet we are all here.

We are all here because our immune systems have evolved to handle all these various viruses. Our immune systems are the soldiers against infectious disease. We are the Louis Pasteurs.

Allowing the best Louis Pasteurs the world has ever devised to get on with their business is what will conquer COVID-19 and it’s various variants.

Our leaders, like Boris Johnson, are either devious or hapless. Either way they need to move out of the way.

Let the brave, the people, the ants, the unwashed, conquer this virus.

Sincerely,

Christmas in Britain

Dear Great Britain,

You need to walk away from your leaders.

You need to walk away from Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson, with a heavy heart, just canceled Christmas because of this new COVID-19 strain that is supposed to be 70% more infectious.

How convenient.

Can your authorities tell you how they know that this new strain is 70% more infectious?

Assuming that it is, so what?

In the same breath, Johnson and his band of merry fascist men say that there is no evidence that the new strain is any more lethal or will escape the benefits that the recently rolled-out vaccine brings.

Not yet.

So then why bring this up?

Why cancel Christmas?

The answer should be obvious. Your elites in Great Britain, like our elites here in the United States – knuckleheads all – have an agenda.

Their goal is the same as it has always been: to rework society – to take it as far away from the principles of Christ as they possibly can.

They hate Jesus’s guts.

Jesus Christ, and his birthday, represent a liberating force in humanity, a force that helped people escape from the crushing yoke of slavery that knuckleheads like Johnson have imposed upon you throughout history.

The goal of the elites was and is to break you down and destroy you economically, spiritually, mentally, physically.

They will now ask you to do more of the same – masks, distancing, lockdowns.

All of these measures have served to hurt the little man. None of these measures have affected the owners of large corporations, nor will they.

Do you hear any outcry from the large corporations?

Very little.

Large corporations don’t care because they’re connected with the powers that be.

They are going to get all the bailout money they need. Plus their leaders are already richer than the richest man in Babylon.

They couldn’t care less if their corporations go under. Their exit plan is secure.

The effect of all these lockdowns is to create even more impoverished people. These impoverished people will then have a greater dependence upon the government which is what our leaders want. They don’t want anyone challenging their authority. They certainly don’t want small independent businessman challenging their Supreme rule.

This is their New World Order.

They are the new Sun Kings.

The elites will keep this COVID-19 virus going as long as they possibly can.

As stated before they didn’t invent remote education for it to go away this quickly.

They want Zoom to be the new normal in education.

With Zoom they get one step closer to replacing teachers altogether. In this manner they can mass indoctrinate young children into their secular philosophy.

There is another benefit to the lockdown; the elites can shut down the churches which serve as a venue for people to communicate opposition to them, the idiot elite.

They can also shut down other venues of communication such as bars, restaurants and gyms.

Is it surprising that the government has targeted these venues as the number one source of COVID-19?

Look for this COVID-19 crisis to go on for as long as you will permit it.

There is another way.

Walk away from your leaders. Congregate as freely as you desire. Wash your hands but do not wear facemasks which only serve to dehumanize you so as to take away your individuality.

Our elites fear individuality.

Be brave, not fearful.

Double down on your efforts to have young people and young adults interact as aggressively as they possibly can.

Of course you should take precautions for people who are elderly or medically compromised.

Beyond that, live life to the fullest.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

A World of Lies

We live in a world of lies.

Now, come on guys and gals, I know you want to be a good citizen and go along, but at some point you have to admit that someone might be pulling a con on you.

Watch this video; it’s a masterful performance. Do you really believe that this guy, Boris Johnson, was on death’s door step and then recovered this quickly to give a speech like this.

He never coughs once. Only a few times does he look short of breath, but that is minimally so and probably due to his obesity.

Many of you are in healthcare, so you know that people don’t recover like they do in a Hollywood movie.

One of the problems with COVID-19 is the damage that it causes to the lungs. If you are sick enough to be on death’s door step, you must have suffered a moderate amount of damage to your lungs. That takes time to recover.

Many of you know Idalia. She had COVID-19, and she was on the vent for over two months. She could barely talk without coughing even after leaving the hospital.

Damage to the lungs causes decreased gas exchange which in turn causes shortness of breath; the damage also causes hyper-irritability to the lung tissues which prompts you to cough.

I encourage you to watch as much British television as you can. It’s worthwhile because the two countries, the UK and the US, often mirror each other politically.

The UK is our principal partner in global war mongering and exploitation.

We picked up many of our bad habits of empire building from the British.

Many times what occurs in the UK also occurs in a modified form in the US and visa versa. Currently Boris Johnson has implemented more draconian social distancing rules in the UK to prevent another lock down.

These draconian measures might be what we will see here in the US even though coronavirus deaths seem to be slowing down at the moment.

In conjunction Trump may be pulling the same con that Boris Johnson pulled in this video. Let’s see if Trump follows the Boris Johnson script.

I am betting that he will.

Sincerely,

Swamp Creature

If Trump is so opposed to the swamp, then why is Kayleigh McEnany his spokesperson?

Kayleigh McEnany graduated from Georgetown University, aka CIA University, aka Third Reich University.

After graduating she attended Oxford to do some course work there.

Oxford supplies the officers to Corporate Criminal Britain.

Upon returning to the United States, she diddled around before ending up at Harvard Law.

Excuse me, for the record, Georgetown is the swamp; Oxford is the swamp; Harvard is the swamp.

Kayleigh McEnany is bright, very bright, just the kind of person that the swamp creatures cultivate.

They’re going to keep her. She’s a very effective front person for Trump the fraud.

She’s very good at her job which is to fight fellow members of the swamp in the press corps.

It’s not exactly a scripted pro wrestling match, but it’s pretty close.

She fights the press on the facemask, yet it is Donald Trump who feeds into the Nazi junk science of the facemask by not resolutely denouncing it as the Nazi junk science that it is.

Trump gives it life, and so does McEnany.

When she’s not fighting the press on the facemask she’s fighting them on mail-in ballots, yet it is Donald Trump who gave the mail-in ballot life.

Trump gave it life by not taking a leadership role in limiting its use, by not foreseeing the calamity it would cause.

Or did he foresee the calamity?

This is the modus operandi of the President. He gives life to stupid issues and methodologies by not being resolute. He talks but does not walk.

His talking but not walking gives license to bad ideas.

Kayleigh McEnany is an extension of the President.

By fighting with the press, McEnany gives the issues even more life as her words will most assuredly be broadcast over Facebook and Twitter.

If you want to extinguish an impulse, you ignore it. If you fight the impulse, you give it more life.

Why talk if you can walk. Actions speak louder than words.

You’re the President. Be quiet and enforce the Constitution.

McEnany is too smart to not know this.

And so in the face mask and the mail-in ballot, we now are the proud owners of two crucial tools which will lead to massive chaos in only a few months.

This election will most assuredly be contested thanks to the mail-in ballots.

Whoever loses will cry fraud.

Now, given that Corporate America controls both parties, and that it doesn’t matter who gets to be Pesident, because nothing will change for the better for the average American, the very act of crying fraud is a fraud.

But that’s the whole point. Chaos is the goal.

This electoral confusion will cause riots en extremis which is why the junk science of the facemask is important.

It’s important to not identify who the perpetrators of these riots are with any precision.

Do you think it is an accident that the facemask has been embraced by the elites in both parties?

Let’s be clear. The purpose of the facemask is not to protect you from the coronavirus; the purpose of the facemask is to hide the perpetrators of the riots.

And you can be sure there will be riots.

The riots will then be used as a pretext to enact laws to cause more restrictions on your liberties and freedoms.

Clear violations of the Constitution will be enacted by law, and nobody in the Democratic and Republican parties will challenge these laws.

Now, Kayleigh McEnany poses as a conservative. As a conservative, and as a graduate of Harvard Law, she should be familiar with the Bill of Rights and the infringement thereof.

Will she stand up for the Bill of Rights?

She will not. Nor will any of these other fake conservatives in the Trump administration.

They will not because neither Kayleigh McEnany nor these other so-called conservatives are constitutional conservatives.

Have these people stood up for Julian Assange and his rights?

Did they stand up for Alex Jones right to free speech when he was booted off all major internet media in one day?

Did they stand up substantively for Otto Warmbier when he was effectively executed by North Korea?

The Constitution means nothing to them.

These people are officers of the swamp.

The swamp is Corporate America; Corporate America is the New World Order, and the New World Order is the Third Reich which never died.

Currently, Kayleigh McEnany speaks for that Reich.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

Wrestling with Sanity in the UK

What do I think of Boris Johnson’s policy of restricting gatherings to six people?

What do I think of Operation Moonshot?

Let me begin by telling you about one of my favorite movies that I like to quote.

It’s called Barton Fink; and in this movie a screenwriter asks a studio boss a few questions about a movie that the studio boss wants written.

The studio boss looks at the screenwriter and says: It’s a wrestling movie; what do you need, a roadmap?

When I first heard that line in the movie theater, I nearly fell out of my seat laughing.

Why do we laugh at such simple lines that merely state the obvious?

I suppose we laugh because when people state the obvious to a clueless person, and we hear it, our mind must protect itself with an emotional release of pleasure (laughter); because if it didn’t, our minds would implode with anger.

So we can either get angry, or we can laugh.

Which is why we must laugh at the Prime Minister’s new restrictions on gatherings. Which is why we must laugh at Operation Moonshot.

A better name might be Operation Longshot.

Or, Operation Sureshot, because it’s sure not to work, it’s sure to be a boondoggle for corporations selling unreliable tests, and it’s sure to be another monumentally stupid idea from the government.

The name itself is beyond silly. The actual practice of it is beyond ludicrous.

I won’t even go into the testing aspect of Operation Moonshot. Let’s leave that alone for now. Plenty of other people can denounce that.

I am more concerned with the Prime Minister’s new social distancing guidelines. I find these far more dangerous.

No more than six people can congregate?

So, umm, as I understand it, to prevent psychological damage of the citizenry which a lockdown will produce, we will continue to wreck the psychological health of the citizenry by not allowing more than six people to congregate?

Is that about the size of it?

I’ve got a better idea. It’s a wrestling movie. What do you need a roadmap?

Dear Boris Johnson: look out the window to your northeast. There’s a country there called Sweden. Move your legs toward Sweden, and the body will follow. It’s not complicated. There you will find the answer.

His name is Anders Tegnell, and he will tell you all you need to know about herd immunity.

I could tell you, but I’m a commoner in your value system. I did not attend an elite school, therefore I am not worthy for you to listen to.

Actually, any commoner in the United Kingdom can tell you what to do.

Forget Operation Moonshot, and forget social distancing, which is a colossally stupid idea, and allow people to congregate.

Do what every species on the planet has done for millions of years to ensure their survival.

Or was their a Louis Pasteur for cockroaches in One Million, BC?

It’s not complicated; it’s a wrestling movie; what do you need, a roadmap?

Listen, my friend, you were elected to serve and protect the British people, not to harm them. Lockdowns, moonshots and social distancing cause severe psychological harm to human beings and to children.

Man is a social animal and as such needs to interact with other human beings. Interaction is an essential part of our existence. Human interaction is the sine qua non of our existence. Take away interaction and humanity dies.

Am I driving that point home? Humanity will die if we stifle human interaction. It’s a wrestling movie; what do you need, a roadmap?

Brexit and Dignity

So what we have today in Great Britain is a classic case of domestic violence.

For a long time now, the working class in Great Britain has suffered.

They have been punched in the face again and again.

The bruises are clearly in plain sight now.

Sunglasses won’t camouflage this beating anymore.

The political class, living in the deluded cerebral confines of London, has done its best to suppress this abuse beneath its consciousness.

Yet the abuse exists.

Nobody wants to admit that they are being abused. The pain and humiliation is too great.

There comes a time though when you’ve been struck too many times to ignore it.

The Brexit vote was a statement by the British politic that something is desperately wrong.

It was a cry for help.

It was the first cry of an abused spouse stuck in a codependent relationship that has gone sour.

Often we don’t want to admit that we desperately need a refuge.

We feel ashamed.

We rationalize away our pain. We try to see the best in the abuser who has punished us.

Yet we know in our guts that things must change.

At first, we make the attempt to move away from home.

We ask for a divorce – which Great Britain has done.

We go through the motions and secure an attorney.

But it’s a big step.

We’ve grown accustomed to that spouse who abuses us.

Plus it’s been a while since we’ve been out on our own.

We begin to take counsel of our fears.

We scare ourselves that we can’t make it on our own.

The abusive spouse, in the case the EU, who likewise needs us to beat up upon in order to feel good about himself, assures us that we will never make it on our own.

The bully diminishes our worth.

We begin to listen to him.

We think about moving back.

But to what?

The abusive spouse has not changed.

He is above all else a recalcitrant debaser and humiliator.

Theresa May scurries to Brussels to genuflect before the abusive spouse.

She pleads to no avail.

The abuser smiles.  He knows a weakened partner when he sees one.   He’s abused others before.

It’s my way or the highway, says the abuser.

It’s time for Great Britain to take the highway.

Leaving may be painful, but it is the only path to dignity.

Brexit Finale

What’s wrong with Great Britain?

Did it have its balls ripped off?

Are American presenters over there wimping down the nation like they’ve done here in America?

Is GB seriously the nation that once conquered the world?

I can hardly believe it.

What’s wrong with Great Britain when it comes to Brexit?

Have they never been suckered by a used-car dealer?

I can’t believe they’re falling for this take it or leave it ultimatum ploy by Donald Tusk.

The general rule in ultimatums is that when someone issues you one, you tell them to fuck off.

So what’s wrong with Great Britain? The people are panicking. Many are calling for a new referendum.
What can I say?
I know. Man up. Keep a stiff upper lip.
A few days ago the Bank of England came out with a report essentially stating that the sky would fall in if GB left the European Union.
Their predictions were apocalyptic yet comical.
In a worst case scenario, unemployment will rise to 7.5 percent, house prices will fall 30 percent, and the economy will shrink by 8 percent over the course of a year.
Wow! Does that sound like bullshit? It sounds like a Y2K prediction.
Do you remember that one?
One was led to believe that the world would end at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 1999.
And it did end, for the Chicken Littles who made those dire predictions.
As it will end soon for the EU when GB tells them to shove off.
They know it too. That’s why they issued the ultimatum.
Duh.
They want – no, need – to stick GB with a lemon which is them, the EU.
My advice: Walk away.

Brexit Exit


What the British can do and must do is use this Brexit mess as an opportunity to reform Brussels.

That’s where the smart money lies.

There is a brilliant opening to do so.

It works as simple as this: 

Dear EU,

We the British would really prefer to stay, but we want a revised governmental structure more akin to the way laws are enacted in the our country.  We value British freedoms and liberty which is not the same as typical Continental autocracy.  We believe that law should emanate from those people who live closest to those whom the laws will affect.  Yes, we know this is messy, but we’ve developed messy habits which work for us.  We’re not accustomed to sitting back and “taking”  it.  It’s a bad British habit we have of voicing our opinion.

Consequently if you desire us in your union we must insist that all European law emanate from the people whose representatives are found in the European Parliament.  We would also prefer that no law come from the Council of the European Union, nor do we desire any good ideas from the European Council.

Only in this manner can we be  assured that our fishermen will be allowed to fish.  Fishing is another bad habit  we islanders on this rock called Great Britain acquired.  We like it and can’t quite give it up despite your best efforts to compel us to do so.  Not fishing would be like asking the French and Germans  to stop making wine and sausage respectively.  We’re sorry, but we grew up surrounded by water, and, well, fish live in the water.

There are a few other things we’d like as well.  We  British don’t like to delude ourselves, so if we are to be a union, let’s be one. We know a few things about unions having won and lost a few.

What will work best is a shared destiny which means shared responsibility as well.  So if we are to incur debt we must share it as a true union.  We’ll have none of this nonsense where some live well while others suffer under austerity. Either we all suffer or none of us suffer at all.

As we British are fond of saying:  What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.  

Ah, yes, immigration.  Well, we shouldn’t leave that out, should we, since you have gone to the trouble of labeling so many of us as uncultured, jingoistic racists.  Well, maybe we are, and maybe we are not, but one thing we British hold dear is tradition.  We’re not in the habit of slaughtering our royals or renaming our month of November to Brumaire at the whim of a crazed Jacobin.  We are accustomed to order, discipline and civility.  We believe that when in Rome one must do as the Romans.  Permitting hordes of people from foreign cultures to swamp the boat does not loan itself to assimilation. As such we must insist on strong borders.  Europe without borders is no Europe at all.

Well, there, I think that hits the main points.  Can you live with that?  If not, well, as Larry Grayson, one of our own, would say:  Shut that door.

Thank you and good luck.   You know where to find us.  We’re that noisy little nation of shopkeepers sitting to your west.

Sincerely,

GB
