Counterstrike Blair’s Brexit wrecking agenda


Counterstrike Blair’s Brexit wrecking agenda

The big news from the EU this week was the ongoing stalemate with the Brexit talks. But what we see lurking in the shadows is a campaign, led by Tony Blair, to derail Brexit.

There are many fronts that the Brexit negotiations are focusing on. Whether it’s trade, citizens’ rights, or the ‘divorce bill’, the EU Commission and the UK Government have a lot to resolve.

But the EU isn’t the only one that disagrees with the Government. The Labour Party earlier this week announced the latest in a long line of policy proposals regarding Brexit. There are also media outlets, such as the Financial Times, The Guardian, The Economist and London Evening Standard who are feeding into the frenzy of divisive opinions ignorant of compelling evidence in support of both Brexit and the Government’s approach. All this does is feed into an unhelpful atmosphere of economic and commercial uncertainty.

But what both the press and the Labour Party are trying to contribute to is a culture of negativity that is further fuelled by former Prime Minister, Tony Blair.

Despite being on the losing side in last year’s referendum, Blair has begun a new war against the majority of the British people. Asking people to ‘rise up’ in February this year was just the start. Just two months ago he claimed the UK could remain in a reformed EU, which still subscribes to the free movement of people.

By appearing on broadcast news outlets like Sky News, and by promoting his own agenda, Blair continues the campaign of misinformation that has come to epitomise the Brexit debate.

This week we saw the former Prime Minister’s latest strategy of deceit: Blair visited Juncker.

The two former Prime Ministers rekindled his relationship their fondness for one another by meeting to discuss ‘current European economics and politics’. This code wording for Brexit from the EU press service shows the access, the desire and the drive Blair has to undermine the will of the British public.

In a bid to fend off the Europhile counterstrike, The Freedom Association’s Better Off Out campaign has launched the Stop Blair Campaign, which looks to keep the positive message of Brexit alive, against the backdrop of all this negativity. We are looking to raise an initial £50,000 to design, print and deliver hundreds of thousands of leaflets across the UK to homes in specially selected areas in order to continue to promote the benefits of Brexit, both for Britain and its people.

To help in this effort, please visit The Freedom Association’s website and donate to the Stop Blair Campaign.

Together, we can stop Blair campaign against the Brexit process. With your support, we can keep the UK’s self-confidence up and ensure it’s free to make a better future for itself outside EU.

      I doubt that fascist Blair could even visit the local supermarket without several bodyguards in tow after his lies and spin caused the death of hundreds of British soldiers sent into an illegal war without the correct equipment including their useless rifles. He would receive a kicking from the nearest old granny.

      I am still waiting for HMRC to undertake a full and proper investigation into the Blair’s tax affairs. According to the anointed one he doesn’t really earn very much but frankly his lifestyle and property acquisitions look very suspect against that statement. And of course there’s that intricate latticework of companies set up to conduct Blair’s business through which all his “fees” doing his jobs for oligarchs, governments and despots around the world get funnelled.

      The whole set up stinks like a rotting fish. For all we know the EU could be putting money into the Blair Foundation.

      But given the predictable way the political class gathered around Blair to protect him from prosecution as a result of Chilcott, I doubt justice will ever be attempted, let alone served.

        Probably on a retainer from Soros.

    • Big Les

      We should first revoke Tony Bliar’s repeal of the Treason Laws. And then try him on those charges. He thought he may get caught, which is why he repealed them!
      F**k off Blair, you traitorous cnut.

    • Hampsteadpinko

      Blair is a busted flush.
      No sensible commentator or observer thinks the man has any credibility or mandate to stick his nose in.
      He lost. He can’t get over it.
      The man is no democrat but a perverse fabricator of WMD and other fairy stories.
      What a shame the Labour Party, the LABOUR PARTY, rolled over for its stomach to be tickled – even that fool Brown let him get away with it.
      But he wasn’t any good either.

    • The Economist is truly shocking in its rabid hatred of its host nation, and I was a subscriber since for 40 years, but stopped renewing when I couldn’t stand the unprincipled extremism with which they tried to strike down the sovereignty of our nation.

      There’s something more here than just Brexit – for certain groups this is turning into an exorcism as the demon of EU control is cast out.

    • derekandclive

      There is an easy way to stop Blair in his tracks – put him and Campbell in court to try and defend their behaviour over Iraq and the consequences and loss of life that followed. I am sure he wouldn’t have time to ponder over Brussels if he was made to answer for his actions – the fact that he believes he got away with it is simply fuelling his messiah complex and his belief that he can overturn democracy because he is untouchable

    • Debs

      Bring it on .The more Mr Blair puts his head above the parapet the more people are determined to leave the EU. The man needs to go away and do a bit of self reflection. He just doesn’t get it.

    • Nick

      I hope bad things happen to Blair.

      • Big Les

        Perversely, he converted to Catholicism a few years ago. I wonder how his god will view his actions, and whether Bliar gives a toss.

        • Nick

          Well as he no doubt views himself as the Messiah I guess he doesn’t care what God thinks.

        • wolfhound

          Probably to shut Cherie up.

    • Dr Evil

      No-one who thinks for themselves will listen to Blair. He is very much yesterday’s man.

      Blair and democracy – Peter Hain reveals in his memoirs that he struck the deal with the Spanish government in 2002 to end the UK’s 300-year control of the vital strategic outpost.
      He makes clear that he and Mr Blair were both prepared to ride roughshod over the objections of the people of Gibraltar in order to get their way, describing Mr Blair’s attitude to the inhabitants as ‘contemptuous’. (Daily Mail 24 January 2012).

      All based on a worthless sovereignty claim.

      Gibraltar – Some Relevant International Law:(1 page)

      Any such deal without the consent of the inhabitants would have been illegal.

      • Big Les

        Peter Hain is another traitor who ‘s head should be on a spike outside the Tower.

        • Lamia

          Not even really a traitor. Like those other notable Remoaners A C Grayling, Matthew Parris, Gina Miller and Jolyon Maugham, he wasn’t even born in Britain. It is a great shame he was ever allowed to come and live here. He’s not British.

        • wolfhound

          He’d prefer an assegai.

      • wolfhound

        Just like the Iraq War, but the small matter of legality would never stop a lawyer like Charles Lynton.

        • Steve Jones

          I saw what you did there !

          • wolfhound

            Be Careful CL doesn’t see you when he’s out late at night.

    • wolfhound

      Blair’s machinations will only increase the public’s support of Brexit. He doesn’t realise he’s soiled goods.

    • SonofBoudica

      You forgot to mention the “despite Brexit” approach of the BBC to all good economic news. Even today, when it was announced that manufacturing has risen to a 4 month high, you won’t find it on the BBC’s main news page.
      And as for Blair and Juncker – they are two dodgy dealers dissing democracy.

    • Ringstone

      But, but, if the UK “Brexits” I can’t become President of Europe – and then the World!
      It’s my destiny.
      Toxic Tony.

    • Chief cashier

      Is this the same Tony Blair who gave billions of pounds back to the EU from our hard earned rebate!!!!

      • MetricTonne

        There is a delicious irony here. The return of half of Thatcher’s rebate (predicated on a vague agreement to renegotiate the CAP which never happened) increased the (already strong) argument in favour of leaving. As such, Tony B. Liar can take a significant piece of credit for getting Brexit through. One of his few achievements I can respect 😉

    • blingmun

      As someone who hates Blair I feel he should be reminded that people like me never sought to undermine his premiership, except through the same democratic system through which he was appointed. The British electoral system has its critics and like any other system it is imperfect. But I never wavered in my respect for the outcome of the 1997 General Election and I always respected the democratic outcome more even than my own personal politics which, when you think about it, is the essence of democracy.

      • grumpyashell

        Plus we are still paying for his security detail….shows something that he needs one as no other ex- pm seems to to have that much need of protection

      • gs_schweik

        Good comment but Blair has neither the decency to take the reminder nor any respect for democracy.
