EU Election - Great Britain is a lion, led by donkeys.



The Brexit Party - The likely winners of EU Election and our only chance to actually leave.
















Our embarrassing Prime Minister  has U-turned on absolutely everything.  We must not put up with this a moment longer.

Three years after voting to leave the European Union, our government has failed to deliver on their promise.

Thursday's European Election of MEP's, would not involve the British people, if our government had honoured their pledge.

You will recall Mrs May saying 108 times that Britain is leaving the EU on 29th March, but we did not.  Then we were definitely leaving in May, in June and October.  Strong'n'stable Theresa, then told us, No deal is better than a bad deal, and this too was quickly forgotten as she capitulated for the umpteenth time, and removed our most critically important bargaining chip from the table.

Just go!
Next, the Prime Minister threatened us with either her lacklustre deal, or no Brexit.  Her deal was essentially staying in the EU without ever having a say on how things were run.  Her final and most desperate betrayal was yesterday, when she declared that MP's would get to vote on a second referendum if they support the rehash of her insane treaty. A treaty akin to a surrender from a country that has fought and lost a war.

Can anyone believe a word she says?  There is only one more possible U-turn she can make, and that would be to revoke Article 50.   Do we seriously believe her, when she says that will not happen?

Thursday is our chance to send a clear message to the Government, for more of the same flimflam that has dogged our country for so long, or to give them a bloodied nose for ignoring the results of the largest ever democratic vote in the UK.

The only good thing to come out of this EU election tomorrow is that its boiled down to a polar vote.

If you still want to remain, you need to vote Liberal Democrats.
To tell them you still want to leave, vote for The Brexit Party.

European Elections, Thursday 23rd May.  Polling from 7am to 10pm.

What sort of Remain do you want?



Okay chaps, we're going out on a limb here, posting an event for March in London City.

We're so sure (not), that the UK will be leaving the European Union as scheduled on 29th March, that we're holding a Brexit Party.

Be sure to write this in your diary, it is bound to happen!

The defeat of Mrs May Brexit deal by 432 to 202, might be the biggest government defeat in modern times, but we predict, good ole Mrs May will get past this piffling annoyance, and pull a rabbit out of her hat.  By this time on Friday the worlds problems will be solved!

Leaving the European Union






Today is the day that Britain files Article 50, it's formal notice of intent to withdraw from the European Union.  By triggering this Article, Britain agrees to leave the bloc by 29th March 2019.

From then on, treaties that govern membership of the EU will no longer apply to Britain.

The terms of exit will be negotiated between Britain’s 27 counterparts, and each will have a veto over the conditions.

After the Brexit, Britain will be able to self govern again, create its own trade routes, control its borders, and will no longer be required to pay into the EU, which currently costs £50m per day.

Since joining the EU, Britain has been largely prohibited from trading with countries outside of the European Union.

It is hoped that the UK will re-open trade routes with the Commonwealth.   The Commonwealth is the remnants of the original British Empire and is a voluntary association made of 52 sovereign states, including Australia, New Zealand, Cyprus, Malta, Canada, Jamaica, Trinidad, India and Pakistan.

You can listen live and debate the exit, in London City today from 12pm UK time (4am SL)  and enjoy the street party and VE dances.

London City Votes



We polled visitors again this week about the American Presidential Election.  These are the results from the three polls from March, June and November.

If this is at all reflective of how America votes, this could be one of the closest elections of all time with the Donald gaining significant ground on Clinton who has always been in the lead.

March
Trump 43.0%   Clinton 57.0%

June
Trump 41.6%   Clinton 58.4%

November
Trump 49.3%  Clinton 50.7%



That said.. remember when we polled you about In/Out of Europe just ahead of the big vote and only 38% thought we should leave.  On the day itself 52% voted to Leave!

European Union Referendum Day in UK




Whether you choose to leave, or remain; today is the day you cast your vote.   Unlike General Elections where you can boot out the offending party in favour of a different one, this is a once in a lifetime vote as to whether or not Britain should leave the EU or remain in it.  We will not be asked again, so choose wisely!

European Union, The result



Since November 2014, we have polled London City visitors 3 times, to see how they felt about Britain in the European Union and if they wanted to be In or Out of the EU.

November 2014  Out: 60%  In: 40%
February 2016    Out: 46%  In: 54%

We polled you again this week, directly after the Eurovision song contest thrashing to see if you had changed your minds. More than ever, you want Britain to remain a part of Europe.

May 2016          Out: 38%  In: 62%

It is worth remembering our poll is only of a hundred-fifty people each time, and those outside of the UK are also voting.  It does however still demonstrate that those who visit London City are keen for the UK to remain part of the European Union.

It costs the UK £16 Billion a year to be part of the EU (US $23 Bln).

Whether or not these votes indicate that Brits think the EU is good value at £55m a day, or if it is those from other countries wanting us to stay, remains to be seen.

The UK gets to vote in an In/Out referendum on 23rd June.

For more information on remaining in the EU see: http://www.strongerin.co.uk/
For more information on leaving the EU see: http://www.voteleavetakecontrol.org/

Whatever happens, remember to vote.
This is not like an election where we get to change our minds every five years.  This is one vote, one time and we will never be asked this question again.... unless we vote 'Out' (and if that happens, expect a second referendum).   Should we vote 'In', we are in forever.  Choose wisely.

Britain in the European Union



Sterling is doing well. In fact the British economy has grown much faster than other countries in the European Union, that tomorrow on 1st December we are due to pay our punishment fine of £1.7 billion to bail out the Euro again.

Hot on the heels of Britain being asked to pay the EU an additional £960 million on top of the £1.7 billion, we did a just for fun flash poll which asked our visitors:
Should Britain remain the European Union? Yes/No

Our board registered the first 100 votes, so the results are both people and a percentage.   It is worth noting that anyone could vote no matter which country they are in, so those benefiting from the fines levied on our growth may well have voted for Britain to stay in Europe, lest the gravy train runs out.


60% of people voted for Britain to leave the European Union, whilst 40% voted for it to stay.

Of course, if Britain ultimately decides to leave the union, various trade embargoes could come into effect initially, so start clearing some space in your garden so you can grow potatoes and cabbages and dig for victory once again.

Thank you for taking part in the poll.
