Whose side is Theresa May REALLY on?

So far, it doesn't appear to be ours.

Theresa speaks a good speech.

The actions, however, have, so far, rarely matched the rhetoric.

Carry on as usual and hope the British people don't notice would be my guess.

As for this:
"Brexit means Brexit and we're going to make a success of it. There will be no attempt to remain inside the EU."
We are watching you, Theresa.

We really are.

A French politician anticipates a tragic event

French politician, François Asselineau, anticipated a tragic event affecting the outcome of the EU Referendum a week before Jo Cox was killed. 

Cui bono, ladies and gentlemen. 

Who profits?

Not Brexit, that's for sure.

The death of Jo Cox - Cui bono?

Since the sad death of MP, Jo Cox, MP, the Remain campaign and the left-wing generally have been at pains to point out that the mentally deficient, care-in-the-community type who ended Jo's life appears to have had the odd tenuous connection with right wing websites and groups.

One of their favourite images of Thomas Mair, the alleged killer, currently making the rounds of social media, is this one.

Here's a photo of the killer at the time of arrest:
Check out the arms of the men pictured.

The 'Heil Hitler' chap is tattooed. The arrested gent is not.

I've pointed out this factual error to quite a few of those gleefully painting Jo's killer as a neo-Nazi but, as yet, none of these has seen fit to amend their inaccurate tweets.

You see, ladies and gentlemen, to those who would have us remain forever at the mercy of globalisation, to those who would not have us take charge of our own affairs, the lie that might facilitate victory is a thousand light years more preferable that a truth that will not.

The day before Jo died I asked David Cameron how the Global Few intended to stymie the rise and rise of Brexit.

Dave did not reply

Two thousand years ago, Cicero popularised the term, 'cui bono.'

If you want to find out whodunnit, and you're not sure how to go about it, ask yourselves this: 'Who profits?' ('Cui bono')

As regards the murder of Jo Cox, the Vote Leave campaign has certainly NOT profited. Many of the Remainers, however, have done their damnedest to link Thomas Mair with Brexit, UKIP, the EDL, 'Britain First,' and anything or anyone that smacks of British patriotism.

They seem to have had some success in this endeavour. This, alongside the halting of the tremendous momentum achieved by the out campaign in the days leading up to Jo's death, may well be enough to swing the vote.

Thomas Mair isn't right in the head. That much is certain. Such people, I reckon, are more easily influenced than the rest of us. Who influenced him? The far right? At a time when the most important matter any of us will ever partake of in a democracy is being decided?

Cui bono, ladies and gentlemen.

Cui bono.
R.I.P. Jo Cox.

In conversation with Baroness Hussein-Ece

If you want to know how one gets to be a Baroness these days, try studying fine art. (Wikipedia )

After college, you get a job as a librarian and become a Lib Dem councillor. At which point Islington Council will appoint you to the Race Equality Unit.

Just after this you somehow metamorphose into a senior NHS manager.

Then you get a top gong.

That's it. That's your career path.

Being of non-indigenous origin has nothing to do with it.

On 21 June 2016, I (and others) had this Twitter conversation with Baroness Hussein-Ece.

The lady's interest waned at this point.

Not sure why.

Frank Field: the EU referendum

There are one or two decent MPs in the British parliament.

Frank Field is one of the very best of these.

Pat Condell: The moment of truth!

"We're being swindled out of our sovereignty, our democracy, our security and our freedom by corrupt self-serving politicians... The European Union is... akin to a new Soviet Union... It's primary purpose is to eliminate the need for democratic consent and to empower politicians at the people's expense and to make them our rulers, not our servants.

Career politicians hate democracy because it holds them to account, at least up to a point. It means that every few years they have to justify themselves to plebs like you and me. It must infuriate them to think that their influential well-paid jobs and their grand Utopian political projects depend entirely on the shallow opinions of idiots like us. Of course they're going to try and remove us from the equation. WE ARE THE PROBLEM!

The European Union was designed from the outset to take care of that problem by removing the people from from the governing process entirely so that career politicians and their friends in big business could form a cosy cartel for their mutual convenience...

If you look into many of the people urging us to stay in you'll find that they are motivated by grubby self-interest...

The real question? Who makes the laws that we have to live by and how accountable are they directly from us... If you can't remove the people who govern you, you live in dictatorship... (and) we cannot remove the people who run the European Union, no matter what they do.

Everything they've touched has been a disaster, they couldn't have done a worse job if they'd purposely set out to screw things up. And we want to give these people even more power?

Are we insane?

Their reckless insistence on wide open borders has turned a manageable refugee crisis into a full scale illegal invasion by hundreds of thousands of fighting age, third world Muslim men who never stop telling us how much they hate our society... And because none of them is screened in any way Europe is now riddled with Islamic State terror cells and everybody knows it's only a matter of time before the next massacre.

The two countries that have opened their doors most widely, Sweden and Germany, are now plagued by an epidemic of migrant rape and sexual assault while the police and the media do their best to cover it up.

Soon all those men will have EU passports and then they can come here and terrorise British women and there's nothing our miserable excuse for a government can do about it because they've sold out our sovereignty to a bunch of unelected bureaucrats who don't have to care what we think about anything because we've been left high and dry with no means of making them care.

Why would free people ever sign up to an arrangement like that?"
There will be some out there to who don't want to believe that what Pat is saying here makes perfect sense. Well, if that's the case, I reckon you must be stone thick, nuts or a bought-and-paid-for traitor to your tribe.

Or, perhaps, you're one of THEM. You know, a 'grubby, self-interested,' 'big business' and 'cosy cartel' type?

Ladies and gentlemen, whatever the grubby types encourage you to do, do your children, your children's children and the rest of us a great, big British favour and DO THE OPPOSITE! Always! Whatever THEY want, don't let them have it.

I promise you, as does Pat and, nowadays, so many others, THEY do not have your best interests at heart.

Vote leave on Thursday June the 23rd.

Alfie speaks for England!

On 30 May 2016, Alfie, a Tower Hamlets taxi driver, spoke for the working-class people of this country when he said his piece on Andrew Castle’s LBC show:

"I am ashamed of my politicians, they are putting money before people. I drive all around this country and all I see is towns and cities that are completely gone forever... I live in the East End and it’s gone, our way of life has gone, our communities have been decimated.

I have to wait three and a half weeks for a doctor's appointment. Ten years ago, I could walk in on the day. I was on a housing waiting list for four years!

No one asked me. No one asked my friends to be forced out of our area. No one asked for our wages to go down. We’ve just had it dumped upon us. I am sick to death of middle-class people and business people telling me how great it is! Because it doesn’t affect them!

There is no East End any more. They are going to talk about the East End as history. Everything is about money, money, money! It incenses me.

The politicians doing scaremongering offend me. I'm ashamed of them. I'm ashamed of the people who voted them in. It riles me so much. All these people for staying in haven't got a clue what it's like to be a working class man in this country."
Tony Blair: The Future of Europe!
"We all know who the biggest traitor, the person whose going to go down as the person who broke this country, who killed Britain, is Tony Blair, with his uncontrolled immigration. He didn't care about it...Mandelson has told us he didn't care... he sent people out to get people here.
David Cameron's done exactly the same... He has no interest in stopping immigration... He could have stopped it completely.... Politicians have no interest. It's all about big business, as usual."
Thanks, Alfie.

WE ARE NOT ALONE! Huge numbers are now alert to the bestial century-long scam that is globalism and its melting-pot consequences. Essentially, the scam is anti-White. It's anti-Alfie. It militates savagely against the lowly white majority in the lands that they made.

As one London taxi driver so eloquently elucidates.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn speaks

On 4 August 2008, the BBC reported thus:
"Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who exposed Stalin's prison system in his novels and spent 20 years in exile, has died near Moscow at the age of 89... He was one of the first to talk about the inhumane Stalinist regime and about the people who experienced it but were not broken...

His works 'changed the consciousness of millions of people', Gorbachev said.

Solzhenitsyn served as a Soviet artillery officer in World War II and was decorated for his courage but in 1945 was denounced for criticising Stalin in a letter. He spent the next eight years in the Soviet prison system, or Gulag, before being internally exiled to Kazakhstan, where he was successfully treated for stomach cancer.

Publication in 1962 of the novella Denisovich, an account of a day in a Gulag prisoner's life, made him a celebrity during the post-Stalin political thaw. However, within a decade, the writer awarded the 1970 Nobel Prize for Literature was out of favour again for his work, and was being harassed by the KGB secret police.

In 1973, the first of the three volumes of Archipelago, a detailed account of the systematic Soviet abuses from 1918 to 1956 in the vast network of its prison and labour camps, was published in the West. Its publication sparked a furious backlash in the Soviet press, which denounced him as a traitor. Early in 1974, the Soviet authorities stripped him of his citizenship and expelled him from the country.

He settled in Vermont, in the US, where he completed the other two volumes of Archipelago. While living there as a recluse, he railed against what he saw as the moral corruption of the West."
Solzhenitsyn was a captain in the Red Army when it entered East Prussia in January 1945. In The Gulag Archipelago, he says this:
"All of us knew very well that if the girls were German they could be raped and then shot. This was almost a combat distinction... In Allenstein, which had been taken almost without a fight, the sacking and raping lasted for weeks."
In his poem, Prussian Nights, he described what he saw in the east Prussian town of Neidenburg in 1945:
"Twenty-two Hoeringstrasse. It's not been burned, just looted, rifled. A moaning by the walls, half muffled: the mother's wounded, half alive. The little daughter's on the mattress, dead. How many have been on it? A platoon, a company perhaps? A girl's been turned into a woman, a woman turned into a corpse... The mother begs, ‘Soldier, kill me'!"
Solzhenitsyn was sent to the gulag a short while after describing the above events.

In The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn also tells us of the period in 1934 and 1935, when Genrikh Yagoda was head of the secret police.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: what would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand...

The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!"
Yagoda was Jewish.

In the second volume of The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn informs us that:
"We have to condemn publicly the very idea that some people have the right to repress others... In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousandfold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers... We are ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations."
In an address at Harvard University on 8 June 1978, Solzhenitsyn described western decadence thus:
"A loss of courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days... European democracy was originally imbued with a sense of Christian responsibility and self-discipline, but these spiritual principles have been gradually losing their force. Spiritual independence is being pressured on all sides by the dictatorship of self-satisfied vulgarity, of the latest fads, and of group interests."
On 30 June 1975, Solzhenitsyn told an audience at the Washington Hilton of a long-standing but well-hidden alliance between the Soviet and US leaderships.
"At first glance a strange one, a surprising one but if you think about it, one which is well grounded and easy to understand. This is the alliance between our Communist leaders and your Capitalists."
Solzhenitsyn explained that American capitalists had assisted Lenin 'in the first years of the Revolution' and that since then:
"We observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet Communist leaders."
Solzhenitsyn then stated that the Russian masses could have thrown off Communism several times had not Western assistance been poured into the USSR to sustain the Communist leadership!
"The major construction projects in the initial five-year plan were built exclusively with American technology and materials. Even Stalin recognized that two thirds of what was needed was obtained from the West. And if today the Soviet Union has powerful military and police forces... used to crush our movement for freedom in the Soviet Union ... We have Western capital to thank for this also…

In the Soviet Union today, Marxism has fallen so low it's simply an object of contempt. No serious person in our-country today, even students in schools, can talk about Marxism without smiling…

I would like to remind you about the kind of system the foreign relations, have been taken up with. It was a system that got into power by armed revolt, that dispersed the constituent assembly.

It was a system that liquidated political opponents without any judicial proceedings, that suppressed the strikes of the working men, that pillaged the villages and drove the peasants to rebel, such rebellions were crushed bloodily. It was a system that destroyed the church.

It was the system that was first to introduce concentration camps in the twentieth century. It was the first to introduce the method of taking hostages, not by catching those the regime wished to prosecute, but by taking their families and, ultimately, any one at all and, indiscriminately, shooting them.

It was the system that deceived the working people with all its decrees: the decree concerning the land-reform, the decree concerning peace, the decree concerning the manufacturing plants, the decree concerning the freedom of the press.

It was the system that liquidated all the other parties. Get this right. It did not, actually, destroy the parties as such, it did not, actually, dissolve the parties, it liquidated their members instead.

It was the system that introduced genocide of the peasantry: 15 million peasants were deported and liquidated. It was the system that reintroduced serfdom.

It was the system that provoked an artificial famine in the Ukraine during peace time. 6 million people died of hunger in the Ukraine at the border of western Europe during the years 1932 and 1933.

During the years 1918 and 1919 the Tcheka shot more than a thousand people a month without legal procedure. At the climax of the Stalin-terror, during the years 1937-1938, the number of people shot to death averaged more than 40,000 a month. And with this country, with this Soviet Union, the whole allied democratic world entered a war alliance in 1941."
The above speech was followed by another in New York on 9 July 1975, where he, once again, emphasized:
"The whole existence of our slave owners from beginning to end, has depended on Western economic assistance… We are slaves there from birth. We are born slaves. I'm not young anymore, and I myself was born a slave; this is even more true for those who are younger. We are slaves, but we are striving for freedom. You, however, were born free. If so, then why do you help our slave owners?

Our country is taking your assistance but in the schools they are teaching and in newspapers they are writing and in the lectures they are saying, ‘Look at the Western world, it's beginning to rot. Look at the economy of the Western world, it's coming to an end. The great predictions of Marx, Engels, and Lenin are coming true. Capitalism is breathing its last. It's already dead. It has demonstrated once and for all the triumph of Communism…

All I ask you is that as long as this Soviet economy is so proud, so flourishing, and yours is so rotten and so moribund - stop helping it then. Where has a cripple ever helped along an athlete?

In my last address I only requested one thing and I make the same request now: When they bury us in the ground alive ... please do not send them shovels. Please do not send them the most modern earth-moving equipment."

Pictured on page 79 of the second volume of the original version of Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago were the leading administrators of the Gulag System.

These were Aron Solts, Yakov Rappoport, Lazar Kogan, Matvei Berman, Genrikh Yagoda and Naftaly Frenkel.

All of these gentlemen were Jewish.

On 25 January 2003, Solzhenitsyn was quoted thus in The Guardian:
"In the camps where I was kept... The Jews whose experience I saw - their life was softer than that of others…

To explain the actions of the Kiev cheka only by the fact that two thirds were Jews, is certainly incorrect…

My book was directed to empathise with the thoughts, feelings and the psychology of the Jews, their spiritual component…

I have never made general conclusions about a people. I will always differentiate between layers of Jews. One layer rushed headfirst to the revolution. Another, to the contrary, was trying to stand back. The Jewish subject for a long time was considered prohibited. Zhabotinsky once said that the best service our Russian friends give to us is never to speak aloud about us."
The Guardian continued:
"In his latest book Solzhenitsyn, 84, deals with one of the last taboos of the communist revolution: that Jews were as much perpetrators of the repression as its victims. Two Hundred Years Together… contains three chapters discussing the Jewish role in the revolutionary genocide and secret police purges of Soviet Russia…

Solzhenitsyn… states that all the nation's ethnic groups must share the blame, and that people shy away from speaking the truth about the Jewish experience…

In an interview given last month he said that Russia must come to terms with the Stalinist and revolutionary genocides - and that its Jewish population should be as offended at their own role in the purges as they are at the Soviet power that also persecuted them."
In the 14 November 1972 edition of The Jerusalem Post, Mikhail Grobman reviews The First Circle thus:
"Solzhenitsyn's novel, The First Circle, is frankly directed against the Jews. It contains a number of Jewish characters, and they are, without exception, scoundrels, traitors and provocateurs... In Solzhenitsyn's writings the Russian people is presented as a victim of unforgiving Jewish cruelty."
In Solzhenitsyn: A Biography, Michael Scammel describes Solzhenitsyn's childhood thus:
"By the age of ten he had the cross ripped from his neck by jeering Pioneers and for over a year was held up to ridicule...

Solzhenitsyn was, as a boy, exposed to students whose parents had an officially superior status. Most of the members of the Young Pioneers and Komsomol movements, at least in Rostov, were Jewish children."
Solzhenitsyn's wife was Jewish.

On 2 September 2009, BBC 2’s This World featured Liviu Tipurita’s 'Gypsy Child Thieves.'

In this documentary we learn that, in Spain, the sight of eight-year-old Gypsies robbing grown men at cash machines has become a commonplace. No less than 95 per cent of all the children under 14 whom the Spanish Guardia arrest up for stealing are of Gypsy origin. As they’re minors, however, they cannot be charged and are therefore freed to continue their criminal activities.

In Madrid, there is a residential centre which is supposed to assess every child who passes through its doors. However, most often, they are handed back to their minders who waste no time in getting them back on the streets.

In Milan, Italy, a state of 'gypsy emergency' has been declared. As one angry Milanese resident told Tipurita:
“These people should be killed!”
One Gypsy said he’d sold his daughter and made a tidy sum in the process.
“I got 25 million lei for my daughter in 2004. THIS IS OUR GYPSY CUSTOM; IF SHE’S A VIRGIN, IF SHE’S UNTOUCHED, SHE’S VALUABLE.”

In an attempt to trace the origins of this exploitation, Tipurita travels to his native Romania, home to the largest Gypsy population in the world. There, he meets up with Brillian, one of the most powerful leaders of the Gypsy underworld.
Tipurita: “Romania is home to the largest Gypsy population in the world. The Gypsies came here about a thousand years ago, from northern India. This man is 38 and HE HAS SO MANY CHILDREN THAT HE HAS LITERALLY LOST COUNT OF THEM…

I’ve come to one of the Gypsy crime strongholds, the city of Cryova. MOST OF THOSE IN PRISON FOR CHILD ENSLAVEMENT as a result of the police operation in Milan COME FROM HERE. This is a dangerous place…

I’m here to meet up with the powerful leader of the Gypsy underworld. (Brillian) The neighbourhood where he lives is home to over ten thousand Gypsies. Most of them belong to one clan - THE THIEVES.”
Brillian: “That’s my father, one of the greatest Gypsy leaders of Cryova. And HE WAS PART OF THE CLAN OF THE BEST THIEVES. I AM PART OF THIS FAMILY THAT OCCUPIES ITSELF WITH STEALING.”
Tipurita: “FOR HIM STEALING IS A PROFESSION THAT HAS BEEN PASSED ON FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION… Having come from a long line of thieves Brilliant has a special insight into the history of Gypsy crime…

When did the Romany Gypsies from Romania start going West?”
Brillian: “Between 1980 and 1989. They earned quickly because, HAVING ESCAPED A COMMUNIST COUNTRY, THEY HAD THE RIGHT TO ASYLUM AND RESIDENCY IN THESE COUNTRIES and they came back with special cars and built outstanding houses and they came back to use the power that they had and they said WHOEVER GOES TO THESE COUNTRIES GETS RICH!”
Tipurita: “When Brillian was a child this district was dirt poor. But at the beginning of the nineties, when THE GYPSIES FROM HERE WENT TO THE WEST TO STEAL AND BEG, the neighbourhood started to pick up.”
Brillian: “When they saw the possibility of making money, at a certain point they no longer wanted to go BEGGING themselves… Then, IN ORDER TO KEEP MAKING MONEY, UNDER THE PRETENCE THAT THEY WANT TO HELP OTHERS, THEY TRY TO PERSUADE THEM TO GO AND BEG.

Look there! What a house! What a courtyard! This guy’s called Philip, he initiated many departures. He opened the road, as they say, in a few countries: ENGLAND, IRELAND, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, America… That house and this house and this house are all his. There’s no need for him to go abroad any more. He now makes money as a loan shark”.
Tipurita: “In the last twenty years the neighbourhood has flourished. And nowadays EVERY STREET HERE HAS DOZENS OF IMPOSING VILLAS THAT BRILLIANT SAYS ARE BUILT ON THE PROCEEDS OF CRIME ABROAD.”
Brillian: “Look at this house… now there’s a guy who stayed for a long time in Italy… HE BEGGED HE STOLE, HE MADE A LOT OF MONEY. And he sent it home and started lending at interest…

These two houses belong to Merisi and Calistrada. Calistrada is my first cousin… THEY SORTED THEMSELVES OUT IN ENGLAND. A LARGE PART OF HIS FORTUNE WAS MADE FROM STEALING… IN ENGLAND...

THE THIEVING, what they’re doing now, it’s no longer a national problem. IT’S HAPPENING ON AN INTERNATIONAL SCALE. Now the whole of Europe, the whole of the world talk about the Gypsies… If the new generations growing up now continue in the same way NO ONE WILL HAVE US! THE WESTERN COUNTRIES WILL CHASE US AWAY”.
Tipurita: "Over the last twenty years I've seen the anti-Gypsy feeling getting stronger, not only in Romania but across Europe. I'VE ALSO SEEN GYPSY PETTY CRIME TURN INTO SERIOUS CRIME, INTO INTERNATIONAL ORGANISED CRIME. Most Gypsies in Romania still live in shacks but THERE ARE ALSO MANY WHO NOW LIVE IN PALACES!" 
On 14 July 2009, 'Cohesion Minister,' Shahid Malik, commented thus in a House of Commons debate highlighting the difference between treatment doled out to the Gypsy and Traveller communities at the expense of local people:

We must all be aware now that, with a good deal of multicultural relish, New Labour has been importing lots and lots of lovely, fluffy, non-indigenous 'organised crime' types into the UK in recent times. But if anyone can tell me why the law-abiding Brit should be treated less 'equally' than the beggarman thief of Romanian Gypsy origin, I'll kiss the behind of every foreigner-first PC wagtail in parliament. And, trust me, folks, that is a lot of behinds!

On 12 July 2008, The Daily Mail quoted Denise Milani, Director of the Met's Diversity and Citizen Focus Directorate and a protégéé of former Metropolitan Police chief Sir Ian Blair, thus:
“We welcome the celebration of the community's history and contributions to London's culture and diversity. The Met Police works to make London a safer city for all and we are committed to understanding and working with all communities, including the Gipsy Roma Traveller community.

The Mail added:
“Their arrival in the capital is said to have led to A HUGE RISE IN THIEVING AND PROMPTED THE CREATION OF A SPECIALIST POLICE SQUAD TO TACKLE THEIR SINISTER ACTIVITIES. Yet in a move which has caused disbelief amongst rank and file officers, Scotland Yard has asked staff to 'celebrate' the contribution of Roma gipsies to 'London's culture and diversity'...

Following the expansion of the European Union, the number of Romanian criminals known to police in central London rose from 12 in 2006 to 214 last year.

Earlier this year, police staged a dramatic series of dawn raids in Slough, Berkshire, in a campaign to stamp out a Fagin-style crime ring involving Romanian slave children smuggled into Britain. TEN CHILDREN WERE TAKEN INTO CARE AND 24 OF THEIR SUSPECTED CONTROLLERS ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND ORGANISING THEFT INVOLVING UP TO £1BILLION A YEAR. MANY OF THOSE ARRESTED WERE UNDERSTOOD TO BE ROMA GIPSIES...

Here’s what a 'furious' detective had to say about Ms Milani on the Metropolitan Police's intranet website notice board:

In my book Ms Milani is committing a criminal act here. Her directive aids and abets a community whose criminal activities are directed at us. If I was the boss she would be locked up in the same jail cell as the Romanian Gypsies she seems to like so much. I doubt she'd be celebrating their culture after five minutes with your average bunch of Pikey child-traffickers.

Speaking of criminal acts, in October 2009, Milani’s son, Karl Josephs-Milani, who was still living with his mum at the time, appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court to deny two charges of sexual assault on the London Underground.

A campaign verging on the squalid

On 6 June 2016, former Prime Minister, John Major, said this on the Andrew Marr Show:
"Firstly on the economy and what would happen if we actually left, the Leave campaign have said absolutely nothing to the British people and what they have said about leaving is fundamentally dishonest and it's dishonest about the cost of Europe. 
And on the subject that they have veered towards, having lost the economic argument, of immigration, I think their campaign is verging on the squalid. 
I am angry at the way the British people are being misled. This is much more important than a general election. This is going to affect people, their livelihoods, their future, for a very long time to come and if they are given honest straightforward facts and they decide to leave, then that is the decision the British people take.

But if they decide to leave on the basis of inaccurate information, inaccurate information known to be inaccurate, then I regard that as deceitful."

For those who aren't aware of what Major did or did not do during his time as premier, here's a little refresher:

John Major, who succeeded Nigel Lawson as chancellor in 1989, took the pound into the ERM. It went in at a rate of 2.95 marks, which most economists thought was too high. The inflationary effects of the post-unification boom caused the German Bundesbank to raise interest rates sharply at this time and they inflated to a record 8.75 percent in mid-1992.

Britain, shadowing the German currency, had, thus, to keep her own interest rates high. This, added to the fact that the economy was already paying the price of the predictably unsustainable 'Lawson boom' of the late 1980s, proved disastrous.

In 1992, Major and a dutiful Lamont were CATEGORIC in their assertions that the pound would stay in the ERM. They asked Bundesbank chief Helmut Schlesinger to help out by cutting German rates. He refused. The government put up interest rates to 10 to 12 and then to 15 percent to defend the pound, but as Lamont well knew, it was never going to work.

In the end the government threw in the towel and left the ERM. The amount of money spent defending the pound has never been fully revealed but Lamont acknowledged that many billions of pounds, the bulk of the country's foreign exchange reserves, had been wasted.

This shoddy episode in British history has come to be known as Black Wednesday.

Since retiring from politics, Major went on to become European Chairman of the Carlyle Group, (2001-2004) the most politically connected investment firm in the world. Directors, former Directors and shareholders of this corporate behemoth include both Bushes and Frank C. Carlucci, former US Defence Secretary and Deputy Director of the C.I.A.

At the time Carlucci was appointed to the Carlyle board, he held no less than 32 other seats on the board of top multinational companies. He also just happens to have been Donald Rumsfeld's room mate at Princeton.

Olivier Sarkozy (half-brother of the former President of France) has been the co-head and managing director of its global financial services division since March 2008.

James A. Baker III, Chief of Staff for Ronald Reagan and George Bush snr., former Treasury Secretary and a former Secretary of State, is also director; as are former President of The Philippines, Fidel Ramos; former South Korean Prime Minister, Park Taejoon; Thailand's former Prime minister, Anand Panyarachun; Saudi Prince Al-Walid; Colin Powell, George Bush jnr.'s first Secretary of State; Caspar Weinberger, former Defense Secretary; Richard Darman, former White House Budget Director; Madeleine Albright's daughter, Albright being another former Secretary of State; Karl Otto Poehl, former Bundesbank President and Henri Martre, who was the President of Aerospatiale.

And then there is Shafiq Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden's half-brother, and several other members of this top Saudi Arabian family. Which is pretty interesting, don't you think?

Frank Carlucci was Carlyle's Director General from 1989 until 2003.

A 'Le Monde' exposé said this of him:
"Six days after officially quitting the Pentagon, January 6, 1989, Frank Carlucci became Carlyle's Director General. He brought trusted lieutenants from the CIA, the State Department, and the Defense Department with him.

Nicknamed ’Mr. Clean’, (perhaps because of his involvement in the Iran-Contra affair, from which murky episode he is rumoured to have profited greatly) Frank Carlucci has a sulphurous reputation for alleged arms trafficking and questionable conduct, including the assassination of Patrice Lumumba while serving as number two at the American embassy in the Belgian Congo in 1961.

For a while he directed Wackenhut, a security company with a hateful reputation, implicated in one of the biggest espionage scandals ever, the hijacking of Promise software and the murder of its inventor."
Colin Powell first came to prominence in US politics as Carlucci's assistant as National Security Advisor.
