For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
A few Economic Truths about the EU and it's effet on Britain
A few Economic Truths about the EU and it's effect on Britain
By Ron Allen
don’t know if anybody else noticed on the ITV news after the referendum
questions and answers tonight, they dropped a bit of a bombshell over
the so called 90% of economists who say we would suffer economically if
we leave the EU. Now I didn’t catch the full comment, so I am hoping somebody else did. It appears the government asked 6,000 economists and only 400 responded of which 90% said the British economy would suffer. So the government’s claim of 90% of all the economists is false and misleading! OK,.. here's a short list of financial and industrial FUBARs from the EU...
Cadbury moved factory to Poland 2011 with EU grant.
Ford Transit moved to Turkey 2013 with EU grant.
Land Rover has recently agreed to build a new plant in Slovakia with EU
grant, owned by Tata, the same company who have trashed our steel works
and emptied the workers pension funds.
Peugeot closed its Ryton (was Rootes Group) plant and moved production to Slovakia with EU grant.
Army's new Ajax fighting vehicles to be built in SPAIN using SWEDISH
steel at the request of the EU to support jobs in Spain with EU grant,
rather than Wales. Dyson gone to Malaysia, with an EU loan.
Crown Closures, Bournemouth (Was METAL BOX), gone to Poland with EU grant, once employed 1,200.
M&S manufacturing gone to far east with EU loan.
Hornby models gone. In fact all toys and models now gone from UK along with the patents all with with EU grants.
Gillette gone to eastern Europe with EU grant.
Texas Instruments Greenock gone to Germany with EU grant.
Indesit at Bodelwyddan Wales gone with EU grant.
Alveo said production at its Merthyr Tydfil Industrial Park foam plant

Hoover Merthyr factory moved out of UK to Czech Republic and the Far East by Italian company Candy with EU backing.
integration into Holland’s AkzoNobel with EU bank loan and within days
of the merger, several factories in the UK, were closed, eliminating
to Italians Stefano Pessina who have based their HQ in Switzerland to
avoid tax to the tune of £80 million a year, using an EU loan for the
run by two Dutch men, bought up companies in the UK with £20 million in
EU 'regeneration' grants, created a pollution nightmare and just closed
it all down leaving 1,200 out of work and an environmental clean-up
paid for by the UK tax-payer. They also raided the pension fund and
drained it dry.
UK airports are owned by a Spanish company.
Scottish Power is owned by a Spanish company.
Most London buses are run by Spanish and German companies.
Hinkley Point C nuclear power station to be built by French company
EDF, part owned by the French government, using cheap Chinese steel that
has catastrophically failed in other nuclear installations. Now EDF say
the costs will be double or more and it will be very late even if it
does come online.
was once our producer of rail locomotives and rolling stock. Not any
more, it's Bombardier in Derby and due to their losses in the aviation
market, that could see the end of the British railways manufacturing
altogether even though Bombardier had EU grants to keep Derby going
which they diverted to their loss-making aviation side in Canada.
39% of British invention patents have been passed to foreign companies, many of them in the EU.
Mini cars that Cameron stood in front of as an example of British
engineering, are built by BMW mostly in Holland and Austria. His
campaign bus was made in Germany even though we have Plaxton, Optare,
Bluebird, Dennis etc., in the UK.
bicycle for the Greens was made in the far east, not by Raleigh UK but
then they are probably going to move to the Netherlands too as they have
who thinks the EU is good for British industry or any other business
simply hasn't paid attention to what has been systematically
asset-stripped from the UK. Name me one major technology company still
running in the UK, I used to contract out to many, then the work just
dried up as they were sold off to companies from France, Germany,
Holland, Belgium, etc., and now we don't even teach electronic
technology for technicians any more, due to EU regulations.
haven't detailed our non-existent fishing industry the EU paid to
destroy, nor the farmers being paid NOT to produce food they could sell
for more than they get paid to do nothing, don't even go there.
haven't mentioned what it costs us to be asset-stripped like this, nor
have I mentioned immigration, nor the risk to our security if control of
our armed forces is passed to Brussels or Germany.
Find something that's gone the other way, I've looked and I just can't. If you think the EU is a good idea.
1/ You haven't read the party manifesto of The European Peoples' Party.
2/ You haven't had to deal with EU petty bureaucracy tearing your business down.
