100 Days – News Round-up – Leave.EU

Tomorrow marks 100 days since the largest exercise in democracy in the history of our country. On June the 23rd seventeen and a half million patriotic Brits joined together and spoke with one voice, telling a distant Westminster elite that the people they are paid to represent didn’t share their ideological obsession with slowly abolishing our nation and surrendering her government to a set of foreign institutions.

Britain looks quite different now, with a new Prime Minister and a top team filled with Brexiteers. We’re on our way to enjoying global trade with all of the world’s continents, not only stagnant Europe.

The wind has been taken out of the sails of ‘elite’ experts who sneered at the pathway chosen by the British people as the UK economy stands strong against all the naysayers. Meanwhile, across the Channel, we’re given constant reminders of the wisdom of our decision as the EU grows more and more dysfunctional by the day.

The first televised debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took place earlier this week ahead of November’s vote to elect a new President of the United States. The event highlighted the contrast between the two candidates with Trump firing from the hip and Clinton looking carefully rehearsed.

The debate most likely won’t prove to be a pivotal contest, but it exposed 80 million Americans to the competing visions offered by both candidates. Much commentary has called the debate for Clinton, just like most Westminster insiders and professional pundits wrongly thought that Remain had the best arguments ahead of June’s vote. So far it appears the debate has done little to stall Trump’s forward momentum among the voting public, with recent polling seeing him win in key states like Iowa, Ohio, and Florida.

Newly re-elected Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn is now armed with an even stronger mandate to relocate the Party further to the left wing of British politics. Mr Corbyn won a historic 62% of the vote share. Given that the Labour Party is now by far the UK’s largest party with 515,000 members, Mr Corbyn would appear to possess considerable grassroots credentials.

But appearances can be deceiving, Corbyn’s support-base – powered by the 100,000 strong political movement Momentum – is still marginal in size compared to the electorate and many of its core values are profoundly
un-British. In his speech at the party conference in Liverpool this week Corbyn claimed that immigration does not need to be cut in spite of it being the number one priority for so many Labour voters. He may claim to be a champion of the grassroots, but only his very narrow caucus of grassroots activists.

Political pressure continues to mount on the Prime Minister for an early ?General ?E?lection. Policies by Theresa May, such as grammar schools are distancing her administration from David Cameron’s original mandate, which unlike Mrs May’s carries the electorate’s seal of approval. And as Labour makes itself a less and less attractive choice for No. 10, the temptation for the Conservatives to extend their thin majority in the House of Commons is becoming ever more irresistible.

Although unwanted by Mrs May, according to new YouGov polling?,?a majority of the public, together with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn favour an early election. At the ?Labour Party conference this week, Mr Corbyn pledged to put the party on an election footing to fight a general election in 2017 and outlined ten pledges he would make to the British people.

French President Francois Hollande has vowed to dismantle the notorious Jungle camp at Calais, insisting that such monstrosities have no place in France. The move will also dismantle one of the persistent scare stories peddled by bitter Remain campaigners who still cannot accept that they lost June’s EU referendum.

One common theme of their desperate arguments was that somehow the French would be willing to maintain this lawless migrant camp within their own borders for the two years it will take to withdraw from the European Union simply so they can eventually punish Britain by moving our land border back to Dover and unleashing the occupants of the camp on us. With every week that goes by, their arguments appear more and more absurd.

Many of Britain’s financial institutions use EU granted ‘passports’ to operate across the EEA. The benefits of EEA (aka, the Single Market)? membership are grossly inflated. Nevertheless, financial passports, which are part of the single market package, have been considered a necessity for one of the British economy’s largest sectors.

However, according to figures published by financial services regulator the FCA, almost twice as many EU companies use? passports to enter the UK market than vice versa, opening the possibility for David Davis’s negotiating team to secure passports for Britain’s financial institutions without recourse to staying in the EEA. But there are other options too.
