This Scepter'd Isle
This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle,

This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,

This other Eden, demi-paradise,

This fortress built by Nature for herself

Against infection and the hand of war,

This happy breed of men, this little world,

This precious stone set in the silver sea,

Which serves it in the office of a wall,

Or as a moat defensive to a house,

Against the envy of less happier lands,

This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England

William Shakespeare - 1595

SAFE EUROPEAN HOMES
When most of the detractors about leaving Europe seem to be predominantly rich,
privileged, industrialists, bankers, politicians or celebrity's. It makes you wonder whose
pockets or lifestyle are really gonna be hit most by leaving a sinking ship? Do any of
these fuckers have to live day in, day out with over crowded A and E departments, non
existent council housing lists or being educated in a classroom where your child is the
only English speaking kid? And lets not delve into some of the ludicrous laws that
faceless Euro-crats make on our behalf to run our daily lives and govern us by their
totally detached bureaucracy. Can't sell eggs by the dozen, water does not prevent
dehydration and cucumbers and bannana's should not be bendy Ha! You could almost
laugh if it wasn't so bloody hair raising. Talking of which, the scare tactics alone about
leaving the European Union are so stage managed and one sided they do not put fear
into our minds, but merely give the man on the street the incentive to realise, that once
you peel back all the 'spin', these bloated relics with money and power moan the loudest
when some of their ill gotten gains are threatened! The English people should see
through the money laundered bullshit, because we have all had enough of the lies and
deceit. Perpetrated by the same cunts who fraudulently blew taxpayers money on a daily
basis, secretly molest our children and get away with it, then amazingly expect us to
believe every word they say on Europe ha! So what was life like before we joined the EU?
Some of us can recall it. We could still travel, we can still appreciate our European
counterparts without having them manage our affairs and we could still trade, all be it on
our terms not theres! And it certainly wasn't as depressing or gloomy as the prospect of
what life will be like if we continue on the European slide into oblivion. Most of us know
the damage is done already, coz we live with it on a daily basis. But unlike the rest of
Europe we can still salvage some of our Septic Isle and keep our heritage and culture
intact. If not just look at Germany and France for example, who can't possibly cope with
the Schengen system. We need to get out before they drag us all down further into that
European quagmire of leading the way, then dismally regretting their brave new steps as
they retract as fast as their Euro set can coz they've realised too late they are out their
depth on all fronts.
But we (England) are currently facing a mass invasion on our borders, particularly from
economic transients in Calais, who regularly take on a more aggressive stance with UK
bound lorry drivers facing gangs of men brandishing knives to obtain access to their
vehicles in order to cross our borders. Or Albanian gangsters chartering fishing boats to
sneak in through the back door on the English channel. It seems England has become a
haven for less happier lands to squat in and generally take advantage of. In most cases
they despise our language, customs and culture and even plot against us, or just wanna
basically take whatever they can from our welfare system at any cost, because they know
they can! How can we really sustain such an enormous amount of parasites, when we
can rarely house, educate and look after our own citizens? Some of whom have been on
council housing waiting lists for years, while migrants are housed almost immediately.
I always wonder where this extra funding will come from when the Government claim we
need more cutbacks to fill the deficit black hole? Then amazingly pull out from thin air a
new bag of coffers to pay for the latest influx of transients. Something's not right? I often
feel like a stranger in my own town when I'm the only British speaking local in a queue at
the supermarket or train station. I fear we will loose our national identity and our heritage
(never mind the Euro's) because England is a beautiful land and we love sharing it, but
our health care, welfare and education systems are at bursting point, how much longer
can this last? Sometimes we don't appreciate what we really have until its all gone!
So lets hope on
June 23rd its a fair count and an overwhelming vote to leave! If its to
remain then so be it. If that's truly what the British public want !'ll bow to defeat. All I
require is a fair democratic vote. Coz believe me if its really close I do not have faith, that
the powers that be do not try and rig the vote in their favour, because we all know that
they can and will! Just look at the cover ups like MP's expence accounts, Hillsborough
and even Jimmy Saville which were all hidden from public view for far too long. Vote
wisely, it might be your last chance to savour what remains of England for a very long
time!
