JUDAS GOATS First Now a herd of MYRTLES!

JUDAS GOATS First Now a herd of MYRTLES!

70 Tory MPs set to join new group to fight EU integration

Up to 70 Conservative MPs are to join a new group dedicated to "reversing the process" of closer European Union integration in a move likely to place fresh strain on the coalition.

Dozens will attend a Commons meeting next month to discuss the formation of the Eurosceptic group which aims to provide "helpful advice" to the government.
The move carries echoes of the formation – more than 20 years ago – of the Bruges Group, which took its name from one of Margaret Thatcher's speeches in which she attacked the formation of a European superstate and which became a focus for Eurosceptic Tories in the 1990s.
The new grouping is being put together by three MPs who were all elected for the first time in last year's general election: 3, who was David Cameron's former media chief, Chris Heaton-Harris and Andrea Leadsom.
The trio wrote to fellow Tory MPs last month to invite them to a meeting in the Thatcher Room at the Commons on 12 September. Mr Eustice last night said the letter had so far attracted 71 positive replies – around a quarter of the party's MPs.
The letter states: "It has ... become clear that events in the European Union are going to dominate British politics in the coming years across a wide range of policies.
"We think it might be helpful if we set up an informal group of like-minded MPs who could come together to talk, receive regular quality topical briefings, exchange ideas and, indeed, provide support and helpful advice to the government.
"The political objective of the group would be to reverse the process of ever-closer union."
The move risks incurring the wrath, however, of the Tories' Liberal Democrat coalition partners, whose party continues to maintain broad support for Brussels.
Mr Eustice said: "There is a lot of interest in such a group. It aims to be constructive and the ensure that we make the most of the opportunity presented by a Eurosceptic PM and a changing context in Europe."
The new breed of younger Eurosceptic MPs takes a much more pragmatic view of the EU than the veterans of the old ideological battles over the Maastricht treaty that hamstrung John Major's government in the 1990s, some of whom, such as Bill Cash, are still in parliament.
Nevertheless it is estimated that up to half of the 148 Conservatives elected for the first time in 2010 think Britain should quit the EU altogether, with scores more believing the UK's relationship with the EU is ripe for a fundamental overhaul.
As well as the financial crisis gripping the eurozone and the lead-up to the future funding of the EU from 2014, several flashpoints are mentioned by MPs, including moves due to take effect in 2014 that would see the Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice have greater say over policing policy in the UK.
"As the fundamental nature of our relationship with the EU changes over the next couple of years, there will be greater pressure for referendums on key issues," one Tory MP predicted.
Plans to do away with all or part of the Human Rights Act will also carry on being a major issue.

"David [Cameron] promised a British Bill of Rights before the election," a Tory MP said. "But he can't deliver it – the Lib Dems won't let him. In extremis that could be a coalition breaker and the PM won't risk it."
Away from Europe, taxation is a thorny issue. Many of the new intake support moves to scrap the 50p top rate of tax on incomes above £150,000 in a bid to boost business – as Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, advocated this weekend.
Like Mr Pickles, and unlike among Lib Dems, there is little or no appetite for replacing it with another form of imposition on the wealthiest.
"I don't want to scrap the 50p tax band and bring in a mansion tax," one Conservative elected last year said. "In any case our main efforts should be focused on helping business and promoting growth."
Even moves to repeal the ban on hunting with dogs, brought in under Labour, and a touchstone for many rural Tory supporters, is likely to be a big problem for Mr Cameron.
Some new Tory MPs, many of them women with urban or suburban seats, favour keeping the ban in place – as do the overwhelming majority of Lib Dem and Labour MPs.
One backbencher confidently predicts there is no way the ban will overturned. "The numbers don't exist. The PM should just get on with it – lose the vote and move on."
An indication of the strength of feeling about the direction of travel the party should take can be seen from the fact that no fewer than three books are scheduled for publication around the time of the forthcoming party conference season in which Conservative MPs will attempt to seize the agenda.
One of them, provisionally entitled After the Coalition, features contributions from Kwasi Kwarteng, Dominic Raab, Elizabeth Truss, Priti Patel and Chris Skidmore, all members of the 2010 intake.
David Davis, Mr Cameron's main opponent in 2005 for the party's leadership and the former shadow home secretary, is also overseeing a book with contributions from mainly right-leaning MPs – including new members Steve Baker, Therese Coffey and Richard Drax.
A third tome, snappily-titled Masters of Nothing: The Crash and How It Will Happen Again Unless We Understand Human Nature, is being written by another pair of up-and-coming MPs, Matthew Hancock and Nadhim Zahawi.
Younger MPs are careful to couch their desire for change in terms of support for Mr Cameron and the coalition.
Mr Raab, a former business lawyer who is MP for Esher and Walton, said: "The mood is positive because the coalition is delivering – whether its deficit reduction, welfare reform or raising teaching standards.
"The challenge for us comes from the unforeseen and the unpredictable. The riots inevitably feel like a vindication of David Cameron's diagnosis of the broken society and the importance of family, while the Eurozone crisis has created a crossroads for the EU as a whole."

Tracey Crouch, a former head of public affairs for the insurance company Aviva who is now MP for Chatham and Aylesford, said: "Constituents understand that we've had to prioritise reducing the deficit in our first year of Government, but now they want to see us deliver on the key manifesto promises that they voted me and others into parliament on the back of.
"Every time there is a story in the paper about some ridiculous human rights claim, or outrageous EU spending commitment, I get reminded by constituents of not only what was on my leaflets but what was in the coalition agreement too."

However I am far more inclined to agree with Richard North in his article which follows - particularly having seen the self interest group that gathered around Dan Hannan, Marc Glendenning, Blob Crow and the other misfits who were disapointed at not being able to Hi Jack The People's Pledge funded by Toby Blackwell and run by James Pryor and Bridget Rowe nor - although they fed in the recycled Democracy Movement names I gather - they were unable to steal and l;ay claim to Nikki Sinclaire's Petition for an EU Referendum Campaign names - well aware that she had topped the 100,000 whilst they were still squabbling!

I am clearly of the opinion that although out manouvered Dan Hannan's relaunch was merely a manipulation by pro EU Labour party senior ranks seeking to embarrass David Cameron over a referendum just as this latest excercise is far more interested in the wishes of The Tory Party than the wishes of the electorate who have made it VERY clear that the majority wish to disassociate themselves from The EU and a huge majority wish to be distanced from it in political law making terms and the plethora of damaging trade regulations the costly scam forces upon us.

A herd of Myrtles - by Richard...



The Sunday Failygraph is making a big deal about an old story, one we covered well over a month ago. This is how those mythical creatures, "eurosceptic" Tories, are going to get together to do something or other.

Of course, this has nothing to do with the coming euro-elections, and the Tories wanting to avoid utter humiliation as the voters show they prefer even the dysfunctional UKIP to them. Thus, do we have Myrtle the Judas goat, but now in herds, as the Tory claque collects together their licensed dissidents, a grouping with all the credibility of the people's front for the liberation of Judea. When all is said and done, they are still Tories.

The more substantive point, though, is that euroscepticism is old hat. Given its current travails, there is little chance of the European Union surviving in its present form to the end of the next decade. The better odds are on a complete collapse.

Moreover, as it becomes increasingly apparent that our membership of the EU is a symptom of a greater malaise, and that leaving the EU would not actually solve anything, given the corruption and incompetence of our political élites, the idea of Tory Boys (of both sexes) getting worked up about the EU frankly lacks appeal. In truth, though Рas Wittering for Witney points out - they are taking the piss.

Even if we take the initiative at face value, this is a case of generals fighting the last war. We have the advanced guard of the politicals fighting yesterday's battle. One should perhaps be grateful that they can deal with such an advanced concept, but even that has little more than academic interest.

The real battle is elsewhere. This parliament has had its day. It has become little more than a self-interest pressure group.

TORY CALLS FOR EU POLL GROWING

Story Image
The findings starkly show how David Cameron is defying the wishes of his natural support base
Wednesday August 10,2011

By Alison Little, Deputy Political Editor 



TWO-thirds of Tory supporters would vote for Britain to leave the EU if given their say in a referendum, poll findings showed yesterday.
And three-quarters want a referendum to be held.
The findings starkly show how David Cameron is defying the wishes of his natural support base by refusing to hold such a vote.
The Daily Express bid to force a referendum passed an important milestone when our petition on the Government’s e-petition website passed the 10,000-name mark.
The scale of Tory support for a referendum emerged in fresh findings from a YouGov survey for independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire’s long-running campaign.

Press Conference in London

Press Conference in London


In London today with the completed petition forms

 PRESS RELEASE FOLLOWING THE PRESS CONFERENCE
Cameron has disengaged with Tory voters on Europe.
A YouGov poll shows that the Prime Minister is at odds with the majority of Tory voters.

In a poll commissioned by Independent MEP, Nikki Sinclaire for her Campaign for a Referendum, 74% of Tory voters want a referendum with 66% saying they would vote to leave the EU altogether.

Ms Sinclaire said "Mr Cameron should listen to the country at large pay particular attention to the people that put him there - it is time to let the people decide"

Nikki Sinclaire also announced that her campaign had collected in excess of 100,000 signatures with 70,000 on paper. She criticised the coalition for breaking it's promise in it's 'programme for government' which stated that any petition that collected  100,000 'signatures' will eligble for a formal debate in Parliament.

Ms Sinclaire criticises the government for disenfranchising 9.2 million people who according to the Office of National Statistics report have never used the Intern - the government is only accepting e-petitions.
Ms Sinclaire said "this is wrong and undermines the basic principle that in a democracy we are all equal - I call upon the Prime Minister and his government to allow this petition and to hold a debate in parliament and then a debate in the country followed by a binding referendum on our membership of the EU.

~YouGov / Nikki Sinclaire MEP Survey Results!

I Believe This Is The First Poll EVER to show a clear majority for leaving with as high as 68% of Conservative voters wishing to leave.

Of all the regions of Britain only Scotland & London did not show a majority for leaving The EU.

In every sector - region, gender, age there was over 70% who wanted a greater national debate of the issues.

Only Scotland did not want a referendum and even there 49% did!

CLEARLY BRITAIN'S POLITICIANS ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF STEP WITH THE PEOPLE & Seem To Be Representing Their Own Interests At The Expense of Britain, our peoples and democracy!

EU REFERENDUM IN SIGHT AS 100,000 DEMAND A SAY

The campaign for a referendum on Britain's EU membership is given a double boost today. (Tues)

A petition demanding a straight "in or out" vote has now attracted more than 100,000 signatures  - which should be enough to force a Commons debate.

The breakthrough is bolstered by a new YouGov poll which reveals a clear majority  want ordinary people to have the fInal say on whether we pull out.
 
For the first time the YouGov poll shows a majority of people would actually vote to leave the European Union in an referendum.

The mountain of signatures has been collected in a cross-party campaign led by West Midlands MEP Nikki Sinclaire.

It will pile pressure on the Prime Minister to hold the first referendum on Europe since 1975.

Mr Cameron has pledged to dedicate House of Commons time to any issue which has the support of at least 100,000 people.

While he insists the names must be collected on individually entered electronic petitions, the Commons Leader's  office has indicated that a traditional pen-and-ink petition could be lodged with the backbench business committee if it has one or more MPs sponsoring it.

Nikki will tell a London Press conference today: 
"This is an encouraging development and raises the prospect of an early debate on our continued membership of the EU - Almost eight in ten people want a national debate on the pros and cons of EU membership"
"To insist that only an online petition will count would disenfranchise millions of people, particularly the poor and elderly, who do not have an email account or access to a computer.

"The huge response to our campaign, together with the findings of our poll, show that most people want their say."
Today's poll shows overwhelming support for letting the public decide our future in the EU - and if they got their way they would vote to pull out.

Some 60% of voters want a referendum on whether Britain should remain a member of the EU, according to the YouGov survey commissioned by Nikki's campaign.

If there was a vote, a massive 52% would vote to leave, with only 30% preferring to stay in and 15%  undecided and 4% not bothering to vote.

Nikki, an independent MEP, added: 
"Clearly the people of Britain want to decide who governs Britain. It must be alarming to the government that despite all their assurances on sovereignty and cast iron promises, more and more people have given up on this European project.  This argument has gone on far too long, we must decide our course once and for all in a binding referendum"
MPs are already facing demands to debate bring back hanging after 100,000 backed the move in an e-petition.

But Nikki points out that Britain is powerless to restore the death penalty while still in the EU because it would breach the UK's membership conditions by breaching the EU's Fundemental Charter on human rights.

She believes we get the worst of both worlds while inside the EU but outside the EUroZone.

"We have one foot in and one foot outside it," she said. "This is detrimental to our interests and to those of the EU, both politically and economically. We need to take a decision as to where our future lies.

"Despite numerous promises, nobody under the age of 54 has ever had a say on Britain's relationship with the EU. This issue needs to be resolved."
EU membership costs Britain £48 million a day - or £4,912 per household over the last 11 years.

But we have signed away power to decide our own future, with 75 per cent of British regulation coming from EU law.
 
Nikki also pays tribute to the hundreds of people across the country who have helped collate the petition including one gentleman in Dorset who has collected 2,000 signatures. Nikki said 
"I'm overwhelmed by the level of support and the dedication of these people who truly are an inspiration."

~THE Nikki Sinclaire Petition for an EU Referendum reaches over 100,000!

Press coverage in a number of papers was earlier promised I hear but with tonight's mindless and moronic violence British Patriots may be disapointed by the sensationalism of the media!
.

Hi,

congratulations to UKIP member and Independent MEP Nikki Sinclaire  - it was great to see the progress with the Petition for an EU Referendum Campaign which she launched and now has The Sun also involved.
Thank you SUN readers!
 
Further to the advert in the SUN last Friday Nikki Sinclaire's office received a substantial postbag this morning - in fact two!

Well that's a start with the first bag!

congratulations - it was great to see the progress with The Sun also involved. I presume these letters include some full sheets of signatures that some may have downloaded and are vetted to remove duplication, as with the initial 100,000. I trust the signatures on line have also grown significantly. Good luck with the massive mail out of 65,000 magazines when that happens. Well done to Mike Nattrass & Trevor Colman as MEPs ex EFD for having contributed to help. It was sad to see the rump Faragistas all trying to run flack by supporting the rather muddled Express campaign which seems to have run into a sand trap!

Huge response again for the Campaign today

Today Nikki Sinclaire's office was extremely busy answering calls about the campaign with huge media interest. 
 
In the photo below you can see almost a full bag of post she and her team managed to send out following the huge demand for petition forms and more info. 
 
65,000 glossy printed copies of the campaign magazine published on line last week will be dispatched in the post by an independent mailing company this Wednesday.

 All of this obviously costs a great deal of money and has been utterly dependent on donations by Nikki Sinclaire herself and her supporters.

I'm fairly sure any donations to help pay for adverts or to keep the ad vans on the raod would be more than welcome!


Now badged to The Petition Campaign
Having done sterling work in The HS2 Campaign
It looks as if tomorrow will be a big day in the media with the results but let us as Patriots working for withdrawal from The EU hope that neither the unrest in London nor the petty band wagon jumpers try to harm this initiative which has done so well.
