At no stage did I suggest that I wished for totally open borders. What I said is that it was not worth voting out of the EU over. It did not enter my
mind, because it is a non-issue. Contrary to popular misconceptions on the topic, there is nothing at all wrong with the way our border rules work,
but enforcement is frankly sub par, which is the only thing that causes any trouble what so ever. Furthermore, its entirely legitimate to call out the
people who voted over immigration concerns as having missed the bloody point to a staggering degree. Any vote over these concerns cannot be counted as
anything other than phobic, the ballot of a limp wrist, a weak arm, because no matter any potential argument to the contrary, they ARE based entirely
on fear, not good sense, compassion, love of liberty or freedom, but ONLY in fear.
In my opinion, no one who voted out because of a concern about immigration, ought to call themselves British. No true Scotsman and all that.
Being British means being immune to such petty concerns as fear of this and that, whether that be increased personal hardship, or risk to our
physical lives from some perceived increase in crime that might come with an increase in population. Are we the sort of cowards who shy away from
hardship and danger, having seen fit to inflict ourselves on the rest of the world without any consideration for the lives of civilians elsewhere? Are
we really that utterly pathetic that we cannot take on a little risk to better enjoy liberty and freedom?
I say there are much greater concerns than threats from abroad. I did not vote out because of such a thing. I voted out because I want to isolate our
government from the support it was receiving from Brussels and elsewhere, I voted out because I want to take our government apart, and rebuild it to
be a slave to its people, not a slave to the private interests of the corporate entities that have their fingers in it currently. I know it will be
impossible to disentangle the mess that corporate infiltration of government has become, with yet another corporate infiltrated body, that being the
EU government, trying to prevent the downfall of this unholy union betwixt the corporations and the government.
I voted so that when we act to take back the country for the streets, and EVERYONE living on them, no matter where they might hail from or what their
religious or ethnic background, there will be no law but the law of the people to prevent us from actually achieving our aims. We must make a
government here on these isles which has no power in any matter, unless given power by the people to deal with a specific matter, a government of
slaves, not just servants, slaves to our will, to our needs, to our dreams and aspirations, not a government which lambasts the poor, tortures the
sick, starves its health services and murders justice by its every other thought, word and deed. We need to build a government not just to represent
the people, but of the people, the normal people of the country, not some group of well to do elitists who have never done a days real work in their
lives. We need accountable governance, not just by people who are prepared to represent the regular folk, but who ARE the regular folk, people who
understand that our principles are worth more to us than practicalities, people who understand that in order for a thing to be done, it must be done
with the correct ethical approach, not with total abandon for right and wrong, not done without compassion and noble intent.
We need our liberty protected, our freedoms reinstated, the mass surveillance culture to end, the involvement with oil war to end, the protection of
financial interests to the detriment of our reputation and our honour as citizens to END. The only way to do that, is to become the government, to
become the power in the country, to deny all else than the will of the people from EVER affecting a damn thing the government does, ever again.
This cannot happen while Britain remains in the EU. It CAN happen though, and now is the time to begin laying the ground for it. Real Britons will
join in, the rest will simply not understand the effort.
