Tsunami of EU Shit put back until after Referendum.

Anyone with a brain will have noticed that the first half of this year has been very quiet on EU matters.

The mass of immigrants over in Calais are still causing masses of trouble for lorry drivers, there are still immigrants being found tucked in and around lorries coming into the UK, we've now got boatloads of immigrants coming across from France.

But the way the media handle the reporting of these issues is very low key. But the problem isn't. We have hundreds of miles of coastline and as a sailor I know how easy it is for a lone boat to arrive at a small harbour and drop off a couple of dozen illegal immigrants. There are no regular patrols along the coastline and no regular checks. Those boats that have been discovered have been found because they got into trouble. One boat in the middle of Portsmouth harbour: a heavily Policed naval base. So currently it's only the idiots and the unfortunate that are detected entering the country. How many are smarter and successful?


There is also a raft of EU enquiries and committees that have deferred their reports until after the referendum. You can only conclude that whet they have to say and their recommendations will be enough to affect the outcome of the referendum if they were released before the vote.

So far there is a report on an security, which points towards an EU army. How that actually works will be interesting. Does it mean the EU has a level of control over the various armed services in the EU? Or do they basically take over all control and the various armed forces are subsumed into a single entity with Westminster removed from control. Also what happens to our nukes?

The EU are also unhappy that there are goods being sold in the UK they aren't skimming some tax from. There are few goods the UK doesn't charge VAT on. Historically these are goods that we consider essentials and it would be immoral to charge tax on. Kids clothes, essential foods, books, medicines and the like. The EU don't care about the morality, they want their VAT and after the referendum there will be a push to change and charge at least the lowest rate (5%) on all goods, including essentials.

Immigration will be another topic, with a push for the UK to accept a further quota of immigrants, to take the pressure of France, Germany and Austria.

We currently have a new class of warship on the books, the type 26 and a slightly less potent derivative as a cheaper option. With Portsmouth closing as a ship manufacturing facility, there will be even more pressure for these ships to be tendered and made in non-UK shipyards. Got to keep the yards in Germany and Holland going, sod our shipyard workers in Scotland.

The Turkish issue looms large as well. Despite protests to the contrary, the papers have details of documents that show that as part of the deal to take Syrian immigrants back, there will be a more open door to Turkish immigration. Something that benefits Germany and their already substantial cheap Turkish labour,  but some thing that will affect the UK as well. I suppose there is a slight upside to this, as more Kebab shops will appear on the high street. Late night drunken revellers rejoice!

Another is the security link between us and America will be further eroded. For decades, France and Germany have watched our close relationship with the American security services with jealousy and increasing venom. There have been a number of moves to either get us to share information that was supplied to us by the US (so the US stop supplying their most confidential information) or to force us to cut ties with the US altogether. There is yet another move deferred until after the referendum.

How that increases our security if we stay in, I have no idea, but cutting ourselves off from THE most highly resourced security and intelligence gathering operation in the world seems to me to actually worsen our security.

There is also a decision due by the European Courts regarding our "Snoopers Charter" laws. Again deferred, but it's assumed to side against the UK government and basically tie one hand behind their back when it comes to detecting, tracking and apprehending terrorists. Better security inside the EU? I don't think so!

There have been no calls from the EU commission for their ever-increasing pot of money from us... yet. But that's another thing that is... you guessed it : deferred until after the referendum.

In all there are at least a dozen reports, decisions and rulings that have been deferred until July so as not to affect the outcome of the UK referendum.

Now if the EU was as benign as it purports to be, surely those reports, decisions and rulings would be so beneficial to our way of life as EU citizens releasing them wouldn't affect the outcome of the referendum.

But, the fact they are being deferred leads me to think they won't be benign and beneficial at all.

If you vote remain, you only have yourself to blame when this avalanche of EU legislation drops on you. It's no good trying to get Cameron to change things (like the remain camp keep trying to get us believe we can against 26 other countries), the decisions, reports and rulings are already there, they've just been deferred.

Without any other reason, this wall of distraction and misinformation should be a huge incentive to vote leave. How can it be any other way? Why would you vote for an organisation that attempts to distract and deceive? It's not like Westminster, where you can vote the lying shits out. No, these are unelected lying, deceitful toads.The only way you can divest yourselves from them is Vote Leave.
