Don’t Put Your Faith In Polls

Britain is being hammered by polls at the moment covering the Brexit issue, and to be honest I think they are a waste of time. There have been dozens, and each one gives a different result ending in total confusion for the public. One says the ‘In’ People are winning and another says that the ‘Out’ people are, so what can you make of it. Well, nothing really!

Not Worth A Damn

Not Worth A Damn

It all depends on the size of the poll and where it was carried out. If you go to the heart of London where people are bankers or work for international businesses the answer is sure to be that we stay in. On the other hand if you go to a town in the Midlands the answer may well be that we should leave.

Do you ask 100 people or a thousand, or maybe several thousand, either way the result will be skewed depending on where it is carried out.

Polls in the past have led to some pretty drastic results which have all been nullified when the final results come in. The last election is a prime example where the poll results were turned on their head come election day.

To me polls are a total waste of time because they do not represent the true feelings of the public, and are usually so small as to be totally insignificant.

Leaning The Other Way

Leaning The Other Way

It is up to each individual in the country to make up their own mind and vote as they see fit on polling day. So from this you can gather that no-one will know the final results until they are in on the day of the election. It is important that people do not allow themselves to be swayed by the results of these advance polls, for they are not representative of the true feelings of all the public on this question.

We have our champions for leaving and staying, among them Boris Johnson and the P.M. David Cameron both of whom have their own views. There are of course many others, and it is up to each individual to make their minds up as to what they believe is right.

We hear so much scaremongering among some of the politicians who tell us  that we are heading for a fiscal catastrophe if we leave the union, but I don’t believe any of them.

Let’s face it, for a start we would save £362 million a week if we leave, which is our contribution to the E.U. Fund. It may not sound a lot to some people, but imagine what we could do with that money. As someone said, it would solve all the problems in the NHS! It would also solve a lot of other problems that we are suffering.

Currently A Free Ride

One of the best things that would come out of a Brexit is that we would once again be able to control our borders, something we have not been able to do since Tony Blair. Our problems do not only concern the immigrants from outside the E.U., but also those from within. We currently have hundreds of thousands of Polish migrants who have come here to work and open up shops etc, and we can add to that Romanians and others who come here to a certain extent to live off benefits.

Imagine what will happen when (a) the visa free travel for Turkey to Europe becomes law, or (b) when Turkey joins the E.U.. We will see hundreds of thousands of Turks moving into Europe, and many will want to come to the U.K. because of our lax benefits programme. Should Bexit become a reality we can at least close our borders and concentrate on getting our current problems sorted out. I am sure that Britain will go through a period of hard times, but we will recover and eventually turn out to be the winners in all this.

What The Papers Have To Say About Strasbourg

Another major advantage will be that we can get rid of the Human Rights commission in Strasbourg  and begin once again to practice the proven efficiency of the British Law System. There will be no more criminals let off because of these interfering idiots in Strasbourg who love to side with killers and criminal immigrants.

The people in Brussels are constantly trying to increase their influence in the running of member countries, for there is little doubt that their final aim is to form a United States of Europe ruled from Brussels. This means that at some time in the future we could see all the governments of every nation put out of business and Brussels makes all the rules and governs each country.

Will This Become The Flag Of All European Nations?

Will This Become The Flag Of All European Nations?

When the E.U. was formed everyone had high hopes of making Europe one of the most successful continents on the planet, but as we have seen over the years, things have steadily got worse, and it will get even more so as more years go by.

So the message is, forget these stupid polls, make you own mind up and don’t be swayed by them. In June we will see who comes out on top, and for myself I hope it is the ‘Leave’ campaign.

The Unbelievable Stupidity of Some Voters!

Speaks For Itself!

Reading a news article today I was amazed at how short-sighted and stupid some of the general public are when it comes to voting. The results of an opinion poll just released, say that support for Labour now stands at 43% over the Conservatives 32%. In broad terms, this means that should a general election be held today, Labour would romp home with an 11 point lead.

As saving grace, the public does seem to think that Con/Lib George Osborne is more likely to solve the countries economic problems than Labour’s Ed Balls.

But in general, it’s the same old story really, one Party makes a mess of things, and their replacement, while trying to sort out the problems they inherited, get kicked in the shins. What a short memory Labour voters have!

Most seem to have forgotten already that Britain’s problems were caused by the incompetent Labour Party in the first place.

Architects of Chaos

It was the Blair/Brown combination that instigated the massive overspend and the huge unemployment with their policies during the Labour years. Now that is thankfully at an end, a shaky coalition is now trying to get the country back on its feet and find jobs for everyone.

While this is not an impossible task, it is clear that everyone must make sacrifices in order to balance the books. It has to mean higher taxes, and less take-home pay for all, for the simple reason there is no other way! But do the voters understand this? It doesn’t look like it.

People voluntarily taking a cut in pay to ease the financial burden is not unheard of. In this time of crisis it is happening in other countries like Holland. The people don’t like it, but they have the common sense to see that it is necessary to get the economy back on an even keel.

Another Broken Promise From Brown

Conversely, according to reports, it looks very much like Britain is about to be overtaken by a wave of strikes as workers protest at the measures taken. So this year, the working class will perhaps have to limit their drinking to 8 pints instead of 10 at the pub, and the middle class may have to spend their holiday in Blackpool instead of Majorca, but its only temporary folks!

Thankfully, the excesses encouraged by the last Labour government had to come to an end. Britain’s financial state is more precarious than it has been for decades, and only action by a strong government will balance the books at the end of the day. But it means everyone must make do with a little less!

Of course, if things follow the normal pattern, once the Tory/Liberal coalition have got the country back on its feet and the books balance once again, the voter will think its time for a change and Labour will be in again.

Labour’s Legacy – Immigrants Queueing To Get In

Tony Blair and his henchmen brought the country to its knees with their ill-conceived policies. Perhaps the biggest mistake was opening the country’s doors to allow just about anyone to come and live here, even extremists! For decades these people have lived off the tax-payer, made a mockery of our justice system, and when they do finally do some work, take jobs away from ethnic Brits.

What seems to escape many, is that the jobs market in any country is a fine balance between the number of inhabitants and the number of jobs available. Its simple mathematics: Twenty into twenty goes once – forty into twenty goes a half! If you have two applicants for a single job one must lose out, which in turn means he/she is living off the state in the form of benefits and dole money. More governmental expense.

The Final Goal

So this leads me to the question, why did Blair & Co actively encourage hundreds of thousands of immigrants to enter the country during their term of office. Well, according to ‘those in the know’, it came down to two things; Blair had a vision of a multi-cultural Britain, and of course, the immigrants were sure to vote Labour in a general election.

What We, The People Pay For!

But look where it got us! Immigrants living in stately mansions in the centre of London with a weekly rent of £2,000+ paid for by the tax payer! Its disgusting, its insulting and it should never have been allowed.

The country had its share of illegal immigrants too, but what did Tony do, he gave them free housing and benefits for all the years it took their case to be heard, and usually ended up giving them citizenship anyway. More expense to the public purse, and more jobs lost to those with the right to them.

Now we see the Cameron/ Clegg combination attempting to sort out the mess they inherited and getting caned for trying. What we the people have to consider, is the job will be very hard and we the people, must be willing to make sacrifices to achieve the goal of economic stability for all.

The Cost

It just seems crazy that many will vote in those who caused the trouble in the first place because they may lose £20 pounds a week. Balancing the country’s books in the current economic climate will be a sore test for any government, and although mistakes will be made along the way (no-one is perfect) it will be hard but equally necessary. This is no reason to vote in at the next election the clowns who got us in this mess in the first place. Better two years of austerity and a return to ‘the good life’.

On The Right Track? – Give Them A Chance!

One can only hope that future polls will see the balance swing the other way, for as we all know, they are only a rough indicator of public feeling.
