Author: Kittens for Brexit

It doesn’t matter how many times the doomsayers have been proven wrong about Brexit, they will continue to “be surprised” whenever the economic outlook improves. U.K. manufacturing expanded at the strongest pace in four months in August, lifted by both export orders and domestic demand. A measure of factory output rose to 56.9 from a revised 55.3 in July, according to IHS Markit’s Purchasing Managers’ Index. That exceeds the 55 forecast by economists in a Bloomberg survey and is well above the 50 level dividing expansion from contraction. Read the full article at...

UK motorists face HUNDREDS in speeding fines under shock new EU rules

The punishment of UK citizens continues for having the temerity to stand up to the EU overlords. The regulations, introduced this May, mean Britons caught breaking the speed limit in European Union countries could face a fine of up to £640. However, a shock new survey has found 81 per cent of UK drivers are unaware of the recently amended European speeding laws. And more than a third of those polled – 38 per cent – admitted their knowledge of speed limits on the continent is not up to scratch. … The Brussels directive covers eight motoring offences, giving EU member...

Farage threatens to come back should the government fail to deliver on Brexit

Now I know that Mr Farage has a bad reputation, but if you really want to see the end of him, deliver on Brexit so he’ll go away. From twitter… Cabinet ministers are gutless and weak on Brexit. I will come back to frontline politics if Leave voters are betrayed in 2019. pic.twitter.com/Sgxwl3ZtaH — Nigel Farage (@Nigel_Farage) August 7,...

Lib Dem Leader Cable Savages Leave Voters as ‘Brexit Jihadis’ Prepared to ‘Martyr’ Themselves

When the rhetoric is dialed up to 11, you have to start asking yourself, “How insane will I appear to be after saying this?” In a word?  Completely. Vince Cable has accused older Leave voters with “nostalgia for an imperial past” of “shafting the young”, in an article warning that keen Brexiteers could become “jihadis”. Writing in the Mail on Sunday, the Liberal Democrat leader attacked Brexit-backing voters over-65s as “self-declared martyrs” after a YouGov poll showed more than a third of Leave supporters would sacrifice their own job to get out of the European Union (EU). Stating that he was “struck by...

Asian merchant bank Ion Pacific expands into European market with new HQ… in London

It would seem that there are some people not listening to the gloom and doom that the pro brexit soothsayers are proclaiming.  I wonder why that is? Could it be because they continue to be completely wrong? Founded in Hong Kong in 2015, the bank’s UK office is being led by Claire Hoey, a former Lehman Brothers and Rothschild investment banker. … The investment in a London office comes at a time when many international banks with European bases in London are seeking to expand elsewhere in Europe ahead of Brexit in March 2019. “As part of our international expansion,...

Theresa May says free movement to end in March 2019

Better late than never. Keep reminding the politicians to do their fluffin’ job and make Brexit a reality. Downing Street has quashed suggestions that EU citizens will still be able to come to Britain to live and work after Brexit takes effect in March 2019. A spokesman for Theresa May, the UK Prime Minister, said that the principle of free movement — one of the guiding pillars of the EU — would end when the UK leaves. There had been suggestions that the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, favored a post-Brexit transition period during which immigration would remain broadly the same...

Poland and Hungary are forming a new Eastern powerhouse in a bid to outmanoeuvre Brussels.

As the EU Bureaucrats get more and more authoritarian, more and more countries will reject the diktats coming out of EU.  Poland and Hungary’s recent responses are just a recent example. Brexit Now, and let the Eurocrats send their proclamations and demands to themselves. The leaders of the two countries have been holding regular secret meetings in a bit to improve relations and work together. One political expert said the two countries were putting the European Union (EU) on the spot by working towards their own power hub – with Brussels unable to “do much about it”. Hungarian-Polish political scientist Dominik...

The Good News on Brexit They’re Not Telling You

What continually catches my attention is the ways that the news continues to overlook the good news related to Brexit, or continues to spin any news as being bad. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so bad. — On July 24, trade talks began between Britain and America. All right, they weren’t formally called trade talks: As long as Britain is still in the European Union, it is supposed to contract out all its commercial decisions to Brussels. Officially, the United States trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, and the British trade secretary, Liam Fox, met for broad discussions about what might happen...

Brexit is a chance to slash food prices

Brexit gives Britain the chance to look at agricultural policy from first principles for the first time in 40 years. We can now ask what sort of farm policy Britain needs to maintain the countryside we want – and in our new report we make very clear that liberation from the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy presents us with a huge opportunity. The starting point for a new British Agricultural Policy must be the consumer. It makes no sense to develop a policy working backwards from what might suit the farmer producing the food, as the EU has consistently done. The centrepiece of...

BREXIT doom-mongers are facing calls to apologise as figures show the economy has thrived since the EU vote

“Despite Brexit” (hahaha), the UK Economy is doing well.  Perhaps these pundits could look at little sharper if they said “Because of Brexit” which is a little more in tune with reality. Nevertheless, the fear-mongering will continue until the proles gratefully accept the embrace of the all controlling bureaucrats at the EU.  Oh wait, that’s why we voted for Brexit in the first place. Britain’s Gross Domestic Product defied the warnings of Project Fear to rise by 0.5 per cent in the three months after the historic decision to cut ties with Brussels, according to the Office for National Statistics.

More Kitty Litter from Brussels – EU can block any trade deals

The EU continues to demonstrate how inept, incompetent and anti-democratic an institution they really are.  With blatherings like this coming over from their political “elites”, is there any question we need to separate from the EU sooner rather than later? As for the threat, let them send their army to stop future trade deals, we’ll scratch them with our little claws and watch them run screaming back to the mainland to Mommy Juncker. — A FORMER European Union trade commissioner, Karel De Gucht said, in no uncertain terms, Brussels would not allow Theresa May to sign any global trade agreements...

US Trade Secretary in the UK to discuss potential 40 billion pound trade deal

Liam Fox (the US trade secretary) flew to Washington for talks with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in a bid to prepare the ground for a U.K.-U.S. trade deal to be signed following Brexit. He will meet with members of Congress on Tuesday. Removing commercial barriers with the U.S. could generate an additional 40 billion pounds ($50 billion) in trade with the U.K. by 2030, according to the U.K. government. Fox will also tell lawmakers that 700,000 U.S. jobs are supported by trade with Britain, and he’ll present them with a U.K. government report that outlines...

Brexit: Its the EU, not the UK, thats at peril.

Brexit is happening. Britain has invoked Article 50 of the EU treaty, starting the 2 year clock on the process of its leaving the European Union. The EU is in serious trouble, more so than Britain itself.  At question is the very justification for its existence. If the EU makes Brexit easy, it faces the risk of other restive member states also walking out, which would leave the EU an irrelevant shell of its current self. But If it makes Brexit hard for this reason, its will destroy whatever moral authority it has. After all, how can it be...

Britain is thriving now it is finally leaving the EU

WHITHER the doom-mongers now? Following one dire warning after another about the consequences of Britain leaving the EU, the purveyors of Project Fear are looking more foolish by the day. Good news continues to flood in: Britain’s economy grew by 0.5 per cent in the third quarter and now Japan’s Nissan has announced it is to build its new Qashqai car in Sunderland. And so where, you might ask, is a word of contrition from those who warned that Britain would fall off a cliff outside the EU, especially those in the Treasury? Their silence has been deafening. Indeed,...

WRONG! and WRONG again – the utterly useless ‘forecasters’ we should stop listening to

Britain’s Gross Domestic Product defied the warnings of Project Fear to rise by 0.5 per cent in the three months after the historic decision to cut ties with Brussels, according to the Office for National Statistics. The surge exceeds expectations of many City experts and contrasts starkly with predictions of recession from George Osborne and other supporters of the UK’s membership of the EU, including former prime minister David Cameron and Bank of England governor Mark Carney. And Britain’s economy was given another ringing vote of confidence yesterday when car giant Nissan announced plans for building two new models...
