Self explanatory title. I abhor that nicey nicey, politically correct, pseudo-Christianity which almost always supports leftwing attitudes - which in most cases are profoundly anti-Gospel. This Blog supports persecuted Christians. This Blog exposes cults. This Blog opposes junk science. UPDATED DAILY. This is not a forum. It is hardhitting and unashamedly evangelical so if it offends - please do not come to this site!

Tory Brexit Betrayal Nicely Under Way!
Tory Brexit Betrayal Is Up And Running
Published Jul 28, 2017
Today Philip Hammond, the Tory Chancellor gave out what some will see as
a contradictory message that following Brexit in March 2019 the UK will probably
continue to deal with the EU on much the same basis as before
Hammond claimed that the UK will leave the Single Market and Customs
Union, then indicated that an unspecified 'transition period' will be needed to
negotiate a 'new treaty'. During this time unlimited immigration from the EU
will continue, as long as EU citizens register their name with the Home Office.
It is also likely that during this 'transition period', which could last for
many years the UK will continue to be subject to ECJ (European Court of Justice
) oversight, be unable to sign any trade deals, continue to pay billions into
the EU's coffers, have to abide by EU law and not have control of its borders
with the EU or its fishing grounds.
John Bickley, UKIP's Immigration spokesman said, "Philip Hammond, a
Remainer who didn't want the UK to leave the EU, is telling the British public
that the UK will be leaving the Single Market and Customs Union, both core
constructs of the EU, by March 2019, in other words the Tory party will deliver
Brexit. However, in the same breath he appears to be indicating that the Tories
intend to keep the UK in the EU in all but name for an unspecified period, with
uncontrolled immigration from the EU continuing for many years after 2019. This
means that hundreds of thousands of EU immigrants will be added to the
population in the five years from last June's EU referendum to the 2022 General
Election. The 3.2 million EU citizens already here will not be asked to
Bizarrely, the chancellor commented on the unreadiness of the various
government institutions to manage the UK's borders and immigration by 2019. Why?
It is over a year since the referendum result and a clear mandate to government
to leave the EU. Why didn't the government immediately begin planning and
recruiting staff so that our borders could be controlled by 2019. Since 2015
UKIP has stated that at least 4,000 extra Border Agency staff are needed to get
a grip of our borders and uncontrolled immigration. Maybe the alleged comment by
the previous chancellor, that Cameron's cabinet didn't believe in controlling
immigration and that the Tories 'tens of thousands' immigration pledge was a
political soundbite tells the British public that the Tories are hell bent on
betraying the Referendum result and keeping the UK subservient to a foreign
power for many years to come."
