Unthinkable Severe Global Arson Implosion Damage

It could almost be as bad as Global Warming. In fact, it could be worse.

IMF:

Maurice Obstfeld, the IMF’s chief economist, said a decision to quit the EU was a “very real” possibility and would affect economic growth even if an exit was managed smoothly. The body also cut its forecasts for global growth – and for the UK and other advanced economies.

“In the United Kingdom, the planned June referendum on European Union membership has already created uncertainty for investors; a Brexit could do severe regional and global damage by disrupting established trading relationships,” he said.

Martin Schulz:

Martin Schulz: Brexit could trigger ‘implosion’ of EU

‘The EU has been on a sliding slope,’ Schulz said.

Martin Schulz, the president of the European Parliament, has warned of an “implosion of the EU” if Britain were to leave the European Union after the June 23 referendum.

In an interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung published on Tuesday, Schulz said that as a result of a Brexit other member countries will want “escape referendums” too.

David Miliband:

Here’s an interesting fact to ponder. Did you know that, by voting to leave the EU, you will cause the civilised world to go up in flames?

It’s true. David Miliband said so.

Leaving the EU, he declared in a speech in London today, would be no less than “an act of arson on the international order”. The public should vote to leave only if they “want arson”. In his view, however, this was “no time” for Britain “to join the ranks of the arsonists”.

A few minutes later he ridiculed the notion that the pro-EU campaign was engaged in scaremongering.

Bono:

Bono wades into EU debate: Britain voting to leave would be UNTHINKABLE, claims U2 star

BONO has waded into the European Union debate by telling US politicians they should be “be worried” about Britain cutting ties with Brussels.

I’m a bit surprised the europhiles aren’t making any sort of positive case for Britain remaining in the EU. But they don’t seem to be.

Currently, polls seem to show the Leave campaign slightly ahead of Remain.

I continue to think that, should they vote to leave, Brits simply won’t be allowed to leave the EU. The vote will be declared null and void, or with an insufficient majority, or nothing will be done about it. Or they’ll be asked to vote again until they get the “right” answer.

And they might simply just stop having referendums:

Look no further than this top Eurocrat for proof of Brussels’ loathing for democracy. After Dutch voters had the gall to defy the EU last week, Fraser Cameron, a former senior adviser to the Commission, wrote this on why “it is time for an EU ban on referenda”.

“Referenda are becoming a huge problem for the EU. The latest result in the Netherlands on the Association Agreement with Ukraine is probably the worst possible outcome. If the turnout had been below 30% the Dutch government could have safely ignored the vote…

  1. “A few minutes later he ridiculed the notion that the pro-EU campaign was engaged in scaremongering.” Amazing!

    “it is time for an EU ban on referenda.” And scary. Yeah, let’s just have a dictatorship if the peons get rowdy.

    I thought we were supposed to be all little and weak and unable to stand our own?
    Perhaps the EU should have shown us greater respect over the past decades if our leaving could cause all that mayhem.

    One against 27 isn’t good odds.

    “”The UK has not managed to block a single proposal voted on at European Council level since 1996.
    During that time, the UK has opposed 72 measures but has been out-voted every time.
    Since David Cameron became Prime Minister in 2010, the UK has voted against 40 measures and lost them all — 18 within the past two years.”

    I often wonder if they do it out of spite.

    There was a programme on T.V. a couple of days ago about the beginnings of the EU project where lots of emphasis was placed on Churchill’s influence. Nothing was mentioned about Hitler’s influence on the EU just as he is never mentioned in relation to smoking bans when it is clear he was the instigator of the current anti-smoker agenda. I have long considered that Hitler had a massive and lasting influence on the EU that emerged after the 2WW, that few want to admit. The anti-smoker agenda is a big part of this grand social experiment to control the masses by use of subtle coercion and well crafted propaganda; to ensure obedience and compliance.
    “The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”

    Some of Hitler’s quotes are enlightening and very relevant;
    “The [Nazi party] should not become a constable of public opinion, but must dominate it. It must not become a servant of the masses, but their master!” (Mein Kampf)
    *
    “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side.’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” (Speech in 1933)
    *
    “Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.” Adolf Hitler (from Hermann Rauschning, The Voice of Destruction)
    *
    “The seed has been sown that will grow one day . . . to the glorious rebirth of the National Socialist movement of a truly united nation.” (From Hitler’s last will and testament) (to which he could have added ‘there are more ways than one to skin a cat’)
    *
    It seems that others have also noticed this connection too;

        Also on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPOQ02l4Egc

        This is quite a good programme, telling the tale – mostly using the words of the key players – up until 1974 or so.

        I think the main difference between then and now is that back then the EEC was a big success, and Britain wanted to join in. Now, however, the EU has become deeply dysfunctional – in multiple ways – and more and more people want to get out (and not just in the UK). If the EU could reverse itself, and go back to being the EEC, with sovereign governments and currencies, it could again become something that everybody wants to be part of. But the “project” of political union would seem to be irreversible.

          There’s another episode next week.

          They’d already laid the plans for an ultimate single currency Federal single Europe. TPTB knew it, the British public were deceived (interesting that opposition, as today, came from the more extreme Left and Right) . The parallels with TC are quite close, with a small cabal in UK routinely lying and deceiving to further erode freedom. It’s ‘Nu-Socialism’ in action, despised by both ends of the political spectrum. I can understand the Right not liking it, but find it harder to understand why the some of the pinkos also do. Perhaps they want total power over us, rather than share it with foreigners. Funny thing is, the UK government accepts most of the EU directives and legislation without as much as a whimper.

    Is it just me, or is the constant ramping up of ludicrous scare stories actually going to have the opposite to desired effect? I’m beginning to think that the Leave camp should stop campaigning on why we should leave and let the Remain camp have a free run at at it. Even just encourage them to make more and more outrageous claims of death and destruction that will rain down upon us if we leave. My guess is the more the great and the good demand we vote one way the more people will want to do the opposite.

    • Frank Davis says:

      I have had much the same thought.

      What also puzzles me is why the pro-European “big beasts” like Michael Heseltine and Ken Clarke are so quiet. Shouldn’t they be out there shouting from the rooftops about how we MUST stay in the EU? But maybe it’s because they know that Britain can’t leave the EU. It simply won’t be allowed. Even if 60% of Britons vote to leave, they’ll just be ignored by Cameron and the EU. In short, the referendum is most likely meaningless.

      • nisakiman says:

        That’s rather the feeling I get. If the vote is to leave, then some reason will be found as to why it’s just not possible. Or, as others have already suggested, the referendum will be re-run for as many times as it takes to get the ‘right’ result.

      • Barry Homan says:

        Okay and what, pray tell, will the British public do then? Just sit there and watch the ugly guy in a beard and glasses (Schulz) shake his head and say no, we’ve decided you can’t leave? Because he and his mates say so? Tell him to go get fucked, we’ve voted and and we’re OUT!

        You let one guy dictate how it’s gonna work?

  5. Rose says:

    Don’t be without your copy of the 1975 Referendum pamphlet.

    “This page contains the text of the Government produce pamphlet advocating a vote to stay in the “European Community (Common Market)” in the 1975 British Referendum on continuing British membership.”

    O/T – Another one bites the dust.

    This time it’s South Korea where the ruling party for the last 16 years got a royal kicking at their general election.

    Esteemed commentators say it’s because they’ve messed up on the economy.

    I’d suspect that some of the ire displayed yesterday may have had something to do with this:

    Smoking ban in public places starts July 2013 and from 1 Jan 2015 it included all bars clubs restaurants etc.

    And they’ve doubled the price of a pack of fags since 1 Jan 2015.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoking_in_South_Korea

    So, like Labour in England and Scotland as well as the Indian National Congress (India) and PASOK (Greece) etc., etc., discovered: turkeys don’t vote for Xmas.
