Dear Friends and Supporters,


Tomorrow will be exactly 2 years since this country took the bold decision to “Take Back Control” and Leave the European Union. In a move which sent shockwaves around the world, the Great British Public stood up and declared they no longer wish to stay under the yoke of unelected Eurocrats in Brussels. We’re sure many of you up and down the country will be celebrating Brexit Independence Day!

After months of disruption from Remoaners in both Houses, the EU (Withdrawal) Bill has finally passed through Parliament and is all set to become law. Following a tense debate in the House of Commons on Wednesday, the Government was able to fend off calls for a “meaningful vote” on any Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, by a margin of 319-303.

This significant outcome ensures Theresa May retains the ability to walk away from negotiations with the EU if they are unwilling to offer us a good deal. It has also thwarted what many viewed as an attempt from Europhile MPs to frustrate Brexit’s progress in general – hoping such a vote would provide an opportunity to overturn the Referendum result.
This has not been a smooth process, and it seemed at one stage Tory rebels would be prepared to betray both their party and their country, by voting against the Government. With intense negotiations having taken place in the days and hours before the vote, such an outcome was eventually averted when the rebels’ ringleader, Dominic Grieve acquiesced and ultimately chose to fall in line. However, this did not stop several of his cohorts from continuing with their anti-democratic mission. Remainiacs Anna Soubry, Antoinette Sandbach, and Kenneth Clarke were amongst a small gaggle of Conservative MPs who opted to sneer at the Great British Public and walked into the same lobby as the pro-EU SNP and Lib Dem MPs.

Huge thanks must be paid to the 4 brave Labour MPs who voted against this ludicrous “meaningful vote” amendment. Frank Field, Kate Hoey, John Mann and Graham Stringer deserve firm praise for having the conviction to vote against their party leadership, and ensure there were no new hurdles placed in the way of Brexit. If only their Leave-supporting colleagues in the Labour party supported their Leave voters and had the integrity to follow suit!
All in all, it was a bad week for the House of Lords intent on sabotaging Brexit. As they smugly debated The EU (Withdrawal) Bill on Monday, 18th June, on the other side of the estate in Westminster Hall a passionate group of MPs debated the abolition of the Upper Chamber. Robert McBride’s overwhelmingly successful e-petition calling for a referendum on the abolition of the House of Lords was introduced into debate by the Conservative Brexiteer, Paul Scully MP.

Scully declared the Upper House had abused their position following their dreadful and repeated attempts to thwart the Bill. MPs from Labour, the Conservatives, and the SNP, all agreed – at the very least – to a reduction in size, and a reform of the selection process was necessary. Get Britain Out, wholeheartedly believes it is time for this cartel of dredged up old has-beens (in the majority) to be abolished once and for all!

In other news, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, announced a whopping £20billion extra funding per year for the NHS, by 2023 as a “70th birthday present”. This amounts to £384million per week in real terms, into the NHS after Brexit, easily exceeding the £350million sum suggested by Vote Leave on their notorious bus, during the Referendum.
May proudly proclaimed the funding hike would be part-funded by the Brexit Dividend. Remoaners - foaming at the mouth at the prospect of us no longer sending vast sums of money to Brussels - have been desperately trying to rubbish this claim. Of course, they are wrong.

The Brexit dividend is obvious. We send around £10billion per year, net, to the EU. Once we Leave, it’s coming home!

Obviously, exactly when this vast sum of money will become available, is subject to the outcome of negotiations. If a proper deal is agreed, along with the Transition Period then the “divorce fee” has to be paid. This will clearly slow this process. However, it is clear the Government can spend more now, knowing the Brexit dividend will soon be available to boost the shortfall.

It is also the case that without the Vote Leave NHS campaign, there would have been no pressure on a post-Brexit Government to deliver the £350million sum. Brexiteers deserves sole credit for this initiative.

All eyes will turn to Brussels next week when EU Member States convene for the next European Council summit. The issue of immigration will undoubtedly be at the forefront of discussions, with deep divisions emerging between Germany and many other countries, such as Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. These nations - the Visegrad 4 - simply do not share Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel’s enthusiasm for throwing open their borders to an untold number of migrants, and will not give in to her demands to take more in. As domestic pressure grows on Merkel to adopt a tougher stance, Merkel could be just weeks away from being forced out of office. Something she would have unquestionably brought on herself.
However, it appears the Franco-German axis continue to push ahead with European-wide solutions to issues which should be the domain of national Governments. Merkel and Macron met again on Tuesday to discuss a continental approach to the current migration crisis. The French Finance Minister, Bruno Le Maire also said there needs to be “a new European Project” on immigration. Very worrying signs indeed for the EU!

Undoubtedly Brexit – another one of the EU’s existential crises - will also feature in discussions at next week’s summit. Now the domestic front has quietened down, it is vital Theresa May vamps up the Government’s approach to the EU27 and begins to adopt a tougher stance. Striking an uncompromising tone at next week’s talks is a must.

On top of this, her chief Civil Servant Brexit adviser, Olly Robbins, simply cannot continue to conduct negotiations on behalf of the UK. Time and again this Europhilic ‘Silly Servant’ has shown himself as an inept interloping negotiator, unwilling to push for concessions. It is time to put the Brexit Secretary, David Davis back – front, left, right and centre.

According to Sky News, the draft stance of the EU’s Council summit next week, will see EU leaders step up preparations for a ‘No Deal’ Brexit outcome. The UK should follow suit. Our lack lustre ‘No Deal’ preparations severely weaken our hand by implying the ‘No deal is better than a bad deal’ pledge is empty words. If the EU don’t believe we might walk away, they will have no incentive to offer fair terms. Chancellor, Philip Hammond : “Get a move on and properly support Brexit and the result of the EU Referendum!”
Yesterday, the Irish Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar and the European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker held a press conference in Dublin. Amongst the usual platitudes about there being ‘no border’, the two men hinted they do not trust the UK Government. An obnoxious slight on our people! Varadkar’s persistence in pushing for an EU annexation of Northern Ireland not only jeopardises the Good Friday Agreement he purports to value, but it also makes it less likely the Withdrawal Agreement will actually be concluded. In this ‘No Deal’ scenario, it is the Irish economy and Irish exporters, who will be most badly hit!

The threat from Airbus today, to consider its UK investment in the event of ‘No Deal’, needs to be taken with a very large pinch of salt. Having received £22 billion in European subsidies, it is unsurprising this company is rallying against our departure. However, these claims of walking away from the highly-skilled and capable UK workforce are bordering on the absurd. For this bluff is not a signal of intent, but merely an attempt to exert pressure on the UK Government’s negotiating position, and an attempt to keep us stuck inside the Single Market and Customs Union! They would be better advised to begin their preparations for our departure, rather than making outlandish comments and pandering to the EU.
Finally, for those of you who don’t yet have any plans for Brexit Independence Day tomorrow, a big rally will be taking place in London. It is not being run by Get Britain Out, and apologies for the late notice. These days this is really necessary to avoid unnecessary factions attempting to cause trouble!  There will be about 15 speakers, including UKIP’s Leader, Gerard Batton MEP. This is a fantastic opportunity to remind politicians – and the Remoaniacs – about the majority Leave vote in the EU Referendum - and to tell the politicians and Government to get on with it! ‘The Big Brexit Rally’ will be starting at Carlisle Place, Victoria, London (SW1P 1HX), near the rail and bus stations, at 1pm – so please be prompt. For further details, please see our social media.
