Newsnight: Brexit surge leaves pro-Brussels politicians 'VERY NERVOUS', journalist says

Newsnight: Brexit surge leaves pro-Brussels politicians 'VERY NERVOUS', journalist says | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
PRO-BRUSSELS politicians are 'very, very nervous' about the campaign to quit the EU gaining momentum, according to a top journalist.
britishroses's insight:
Vote OUT we will prosper as a country and individually without the constraints of a failing EU. We can hold our small elected government to account, we can not hold the EU to account. There is no reason that we can't deal with the EU as an individual country on the outside of the EU as we will deal with the rest of the world. The EU are holding us back as a country and for those who think we can make a difference from the inside, I'm sorry but you are deluding yourselves, we haven't been able to do that for the generations we have been in already as the project consumes more and more countries we will have even less input! For those who I've heard comment that they don't want to lose the money that the EU have given to the areas they live in, they have NOT given you anything that money is our money to begin with that we have paid into the EU.

britishroses's insight:
London will remain a leading financial centre outside the EU and banks will still want to be headquartered in Britain due to low tax rates. Osborne and Cameron just months ago talked of how capable we are of prospering and growing outside of the EU, now making yet another U-turn they continue to manipulate and deceive the people of this country, so beware when they open their mouths of what comes out! We are been held back by the EU, it's time to once again spread our wings and soar!

Here's the one law that should have been included in the Queen's Speech | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The Queen’s Speech covered a number of important issues this year – extremism and free speech, turning our schools into academies, the bill of rights, electric cars, the list goes on. But there was one glaring ommission: mental health. When are the Conservatives finally going to deliver the huge influx of funding they promised for mental health care? In today's list of new legislation, the mental health of prisoners was mentioned fleetingly – but that was it.
