We received the following letter from Anne Marie Waters this morning which we are happy to publish so it reaches a wide audience:
Thank you for your support at this important time in our politics.
I hope you will be able to join me at the launch of the ‘Manifesto for Forgotten Britain’. This will outline my vision for the future direction of UKIP under my leadership, and for the future direction of our country.
I believe that the majority of the British people have had enough of being ignored, and had enough of the politically correct lies that have created a fractured and uneasy society. I believe the Manifesto for Forgotten Britain will speak to and give hope to that majority.
The event will take place at 1 pm, on Saturday July 1st at:
AESSEAL New York Stadium,
Rotherham United Football Club,
New York Way,
I look forward to seeing you there.
My very best wishes,
Today’s next letter comes from our reader and contributor Jack T which speaks for itself:
I have refrained from commenting on the scenes that we have seen in the aftermath of the Grenfell fire out of respect for those affected; however the time has come to do so.
Even though I knew that the percentage of immigrants in London was high I was surprised to see the makeup of the displaced residents, many of whom could not string a few words of English together in a coherent manner. I was left wondering how many of them were here illegally, unemployed or even plotting against us. See this quote, today on Breitbart:
“The Home Office and police have made a promise of amnesty to illegal migrants who resided in the Grenfell Tower if they come forward to police. Many residents may also be given luxury flats – whilst 7,000 UK veterans remain homeless.”
If I were a resident or intending purchaser of a property on that development I would be extremely angry and likely to pursue legal action against those who would force us to accept such people as our neighbours with the obvious consequences. As it is I am angry that my taxes are being used in this way and angry that illegal immigrants are being given amnesty.
We have also seen the rallying round of the extreme left who are using this incident to pursue their agenda and using the victims to do so. Perhaps the worst offender here is Corbyn with his demands that property be seized from the “rich” to house them. I am waiting to hear that mobs are doing as he suggests and, without any hope of it happening, his being arrested for fomenting such action.
Of course May is responsible for all of this and more in the view of the left; Corbyn may move freely among them with no risk of harm coming to him yet May is criticised for not addressing the mob when she was surely at risk of harm if she had done so. This event is yet another warning of the unrest that is to come whilst government fails to deal with the invader.
Respectfully, Jack Thomas
Finally, a letter from our reader and correspondent Roger arthur, with a timely reminder:
This is for Remoaners who continue to question the bus advert, which was indeed far from complete. In fact the UK carries direct and indirect costs as indicated below.
To recap, the UK pays around £19.5bn pa (about £375m per week) in direct charges, of which the EU spends about £8.5bn pa on schemes in the UK. So the UK pays over £2, for every £1 that the EU spends on UK schemes. Added to the net £11bn cost, UK businesses carry an indirect cost for complying with EU Regulations.
In 2005 the UK Treasury issued a Paper, estimating that cost at 6% of GDP, which equates to £96bn pa (£1.85 billion per week) assuming a GDP of around £1,600 bn pa. More recently Economist Professor Tim Congdon estimated the compliance cost to be around 6.5% of GDP, only a little more than the Treasury’s 2005 estimate. While such estimates will not be accurate to the nearest £billion, the magnitude of the numbers speak for themselves. Once businesses are no longer so burdened, their output and contribution to Government coffers should increase, to the benefit of all.
None of the above includes the tens of £billions lost due to tax avoidance by big companies – because EU Law allows them to nominate the EU country where they are taxed. As Corbyn said: “The EU knowingly maintains tax havens … around the continent … and allows European companies to outsource their profits to countries where tax rates are low.” A Daily Telegraph article in 2013, puts the tax loss at around £120 billion pa.
The above also omits over £2bn pa taken by the EU from UK VAT receipts and it does not include UK contributions to Eurozone bail-outs. Neither does it include inflation in the cost of non-EU imports, due to tariffs. The above costs far outweigh any value attached to remaining in single market.
Respectfully, Roger Arthur
