In a New Year message to 350,000 plus supporters of Leave.EU, the co-founder, Arron Banks, of the campaign for the UK to regain control of its own destiny, has claimed that Brexit will be the biggest political earthquake since the fall of the Berlin Wall, stating:

2015 has been a year of EU crises – the Eurozone Greek debt crisis, the migration crisis and now the security crisis. Next year will be no different, already we can see the problems of the floods in England made possible by EU laws that have halted dredging of our rivers. New crises and repeats of the existing ones will certainly follow in 2016. The EU is not the solution to our problems it is the cause of many of them.

“Leaving the EU will be the biggest political earthquake in Europe since the Berlin Wall fell. It will not just liberate the UK so that we can decide our laws for ourselves it will also initiate change in the EU itself

“A stiff breeze should be enough to knock down this crumbling edifice, and we’ve spent the last year building a referendum machine which, with your help, should roll right over it.  Let’s get that motor running! Let’s make 2016 a year to remember and one our grandchildren will thank us for.

Let’s make 2016 a year to remember

When David Cameron promised a referendum EU membership at the beginning of the year, no-one — least of all Mr Cameron himself — believed he would end up being held to his word.

EU Flag large (PD)He didn’t have a majority, and no ruling party had increased its vote share between normal elections since 1955.  With Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg both opposed, a referendum bill would never pass.  It was supposed to be just another empty PR gesture to please party supporters.  (Remember that previous “cast-iron” pledge?)

But he didn’t reckon with the determination of the Great British Public to finally have our say, after spending forty years being led down the path towards a United States of Europe we never asked for.

Mr Cameron has had to keep his word this time.  The referendum is on, and no-one is better placed to fight it than our team here at Leave.eu.  With endorsements from politicians and campaigners across the political spectrum, we’ve signed up well over a thousand councillors, more than three-thousand businesses and three-hundred-and-fifty-thousand grassroots supporters — that’s more than the Conservative Party, the Liberal Democrats and UKIP have put together.

Without question, this is the biggest, fastest-growing political movement in our country’s modern history, backed by an amazing team of professional analysts and campaigners from Cambridge Analytica, who worked on Nelson Mandela’s presidential campaign, and Goddard Gunster, who have been fighting referendums for decades achieving a 90% success rate.

Up against us are the Remains: a rogues’ gallery of Brussels bureaucrats, disgraced politicians and EU-funded academics, trying to defend an out-of-date, out-of-touch customs union which has spent the past year bullying its members in Eastern Europe and squeezing the poor Greeks mercilessly.  Its handling of the ongoing and self-inflicted migrant crisis has been abysmal and ultimately tragic, while the former head of Interpol has come out to condemn is fast-collapsing Schengen Area as “an international passport-free zone for terrorists”.

We know that David Cameron’s fudged renegotiation isn’t going to change it.  He isn’t asking for an end to the supremacy of unaccountable EU law over the laws of our own courts, elected parliaments and assemblies. He isn’t asking for the power to be returned to strike trade deals with our friends outside the EU, or for our independent vote on global bodies like the WTO to be restored.  He isn’t even asking for us to be given back the power to manage our own fishing waters and farm policy, despite decades of ruinous mismanagement.

As for migration… Well, we might be treated to a great, choreographed row over benefits and a few trivial concessions, but this is politics mimicking professional wrestling.  What you see is not real, it is staged and it is fake. Real powers to control who can come into the country are NOT up for discussion.

2015 has been a year of EU crises – the Eurozone Greek debt crisis, the migration crisis and now the security crisis. Next year will be no different, already we can see the problems of the floods in England made possible by EU laws that have halted dredging of our rivers. New crises and repeats of the existing ones will certainly follow in 2016. The EU is not the solution to our problems it is the cause of many of them.

Leaving the EU will be the biggest political earthquake in Europe since the Berlin Wall fell. It will not just liberate the UK so that we can decide our laws for ourselves it will also initiate change in the EU itself, forcing it to face up to its many failures that will have caused the British people to relinquish membership of a failed attempt to force proud countries into an unaccountable superstate.

A stiff breeze should be enough to knock down this crumbling edifice, and we’ve spent the last year building a referendum machine which, with your help, should roll right over it.  Let’s get that motor running! Let’s make 2016 a year to remember and one our grandchildren will thank us for.
