Many aspects of Brexit are the polar opposites of what might be expected – Assuming that we believed everything told to us by our betters.
1. The Generation Paradox
The BBC and remoaners tell us that:
Does this make any sense either logically and economically? What are the reasons for these assertions?
Whigh group would be better off if the UK remained as a subservient EU Region? Logically, the older generation has a lot to gain financially by remaining subservient to the EU. If personal financial gain was the only driving force, then the older generation should all be remainers.
Conversely, the younger generation are being crucified by the EU. Young people’s lives and futures are being ruined by the EU. Young people should all be supporting independence and freedom to regain control of their lives.
Why does the older generation tend to support freedom and independence? They will be worse off – at least in the short term.
Why does the younger generation want to remain as a subservient EU region? Will younger people really be better off handing over their freedom to an unelected colonial master?
a) The Older Generation Paradox
Older people should gain massively from living in an EU region. Some of the vast array of EU benefits for old people include the following.
Why would the deplorable old folk want to give up these benefits? The older generation should all be remainers.
b) The Young Generation Paradox
Are the progressive young people really better off by remaining subservient to the EU? For example,
Many young people now have to pay huge student fees.
(Student fees are an indirect result of EU membership rules. [See English Student Debts]. Even Nick Clegg had no choice but to vote to increase student fees. The alternative would have been funding from increased Government borrowing. As a good European, Nick knew that breaking EU rules on government borrowing was not an option).
Costs of EU membership does not just involve the membership fee. For example, indirect EU costs include the Working Tax Credits to subsidise the new low paid workers. (Or unemployment benefits for native workers whose jobs have been moved to low cost centres).
Another large but indirect cost of EU membership is the interest on the UK National Debt. Interest on the National Debt will continue to be paid by todays young generation long after the deplorables are dead and gone.
A large part of the UK National debt has been created by trading with the EU at a net loss since 1972. (1972 was the last year that the UK traded at a profit with the area now covered by the EU). Every annual UK-EU trading loss since 1972 has added to the UK’s National Debt “credit card” and its debt interest repayments).
EU membership is crucifying young people, yet they still want to remain shackled to the EU?
2. The Party Political Party Paradoxes
The majority of Conservative MPs support freedom and independence. With a few exceptions, Labour MPs and some Unions support remaining as a subservient EU region. Why?
a) The Conservative Party Paradox
Labour and their champagne socialist friends claim that the Conservatives are the party of big business. If this is true, then one would assume that all Conservative MPs would be remainers. EU policies have been shaped through 70 years of lobbying by big business. The EU policies of free movement for both workers and businesses keep wages low, prevents strikes and neuters the Unions.
How long would Arthur Scargill’s 1984 coal strike have lasted if Mrs Thatcher had been able to use the 1 million new European workers recruited by Tony Blair?
A return to UK freedom and independence will also mean freedom and independence for the Unions. Surely, if the champagne socialist propaganda was true, then no Conservative MP would vote to give less strength to big business but more strength to Unions?
b) The Parliamentary Labour Party Paradox
Support by nearly all Labour MPs to remain as an EU member is the mother of all paradoxes.
