As Remembrance Day approaches it is fitting that we take time to remember and give thanks to those who fought in past wars to preserve our long-held sovereignty and democracy. Of course, we remember our armed forces but we should not forget the many who laboured for long hours in the aircraft, vehicle and munitions factories to support the efforts of those forces.
Now we face another enemy which is not so different in the way it wants to govern over us. That enemy is assisted by those so eloquently described in words attributed to Marcus Tullius Cicero in Roman times:
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
That enemy is also clear in its intent to govern us by a cabal of individuals we do not elect, supported by a sham parliament which effectively has no power in rejecting their proposed law. It relies on ignorance of its stated intent and is supported in its ultimate aim by unelected globalist organisations such as the United Nations, whose intent is also openly declared through its Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030. Maybe they have been inspired by the writings or Huxley and Orwell.
For now, it is also supported by the majority of the mainstream media who accept the propaganda and outright lies without question, even when spoken by a 16-year-old. Such propaganda is becoming embedded in our culture and the effect on our lives is growing by the day.
We have a duty to preserve our sovereignty and democracy for those, many yet unborn, who come afterwards. We simply cannot fail, whatever the cost. That requires opening the minds of those infected with the propaganda at every opportunity.

The Express reports that a WTO deal will be taken off the table by a win for Boris in the coming election, yet Briefings for Brexit suggests that a hefty Tory majority would give Boris a credible “no deal” threat to concentrate the minds of the EU – so will he use it?
The simple fact is that the Boris deal simply opens the way to further tortuous negotiations (or should that be “negotiations”?) with the EU over our post-Brexit relationship, whilst we remain in a position of compliant weakness, fettered by ongoing EU rules and regs over which we will have lost any formal influence and remaining under the effective jurisdiction of the ECJ, at least to the end of “transition”.
There can be no doubt that our negotiating hand would be very strong if we were to leave now on WTO terms – we could offer them an immediate temporary free trade deal (WTO rule XXIV) which they could not reasonably be seen by Europeans to refuse, then we could both take our time to resolve a permanent deal, in principle already free of EU restrictions. The EU would then be negotiating on the back foot, which some might consider a very welcome development!
I cannot help but think that if Boris was truly committed to our independence he would underline the point by seizing the advantage offered by the WTO route, and getting the ensuing negotiations done quickly from a position of strength. It’s a “no-brainer”.
Of course this would herald a crescendo of squeals of anguish from all the usual suspects, but the practical fall-out would be quickly contained and he would soon have the whole country behind him. People of all stripes (bar die-hard remoaners) now want this finished.
If he pursues his complex reheated May withdrawal deal that seemingly nobody fully understands, then the obfuscation pump is well and truly primed for yet more of what we have been force-fed these last three years. He absolutely risks the future of the Conservative Party if the Tories now drag this unnecessary torture out yet again.

While no-one should condone verbal abuse and threats of violence towards anyone of whatever gender or walk of life, has the current hand-wringing and self-righteous indignation of many MPs not gone a little too far?
Should all those deciding not to stand for re-election on 12th December, stating the aforesaid as their motivation, really be surprised by the expressions of anger being levelled at them? The reason is easy enough to understand: most constituencies voted ‘Leave’ in the 2016 EU referendum and most MPs have refused to honour that democratically declared majority decision, despite a written assurance from the then Prime Minister that it would be implemented. All MP’s first duty must be to represent their constituents, yet many have arrogantly neglected to do so. Have they conveniently forgotten that they voted in the first place by a large majority to abrogate their representative responsibility in favour of direct democracy, by way of that ‘once in a generation’ people’s vote? That this did not then go the way they hoped has been made increasingly clear over the intervening years, with ever more blatant attempts to reverse the result. Are we not justified in being angered by this?
Perhaps however there is another reason that they are ‘baling out’. It is not that they have been intimidated by those who have expressed their anger with abuse and threats but rather that they fear most of us will express ours at the ballot box and they will lose their seats. I suggest that in truth, they are merely ‘jumping before being pushed’!
Yours sincerely, Geoff Lazell
