If it means the end of the UK’s E.U. membership (and the crack it’ll create within the EU) then i’m all for it.
Under Corbyn, there will be a debate about TTIP, about the way Greece has been treated, and about the role of national parliaments and democracy.
I have no idea which side of the fence Mr. Corbyn himself will come down on, but I feel the Left is finally waking up to what a corporatist, big business club the EU really is.
I have to say I hope he wins. The best news of all? A Corbyn win will be the death of the Green Party. Hooray.
NIGEL FARAGE FOR BREITBART: I HOPE CORBYN WINS, HE’S GOOD FOR THE REFERENDUM AND WILL KILL THE GREEN PARTY
For fifteen years now I have believed that the folly of the Euro currency would break up the European Union. It was perfectly obvious to me that economic and monetary union between Greece and Germany could never work and that political union was an impossibility.
But now I see a mistake even greater than the Euro folly: the EU’s Common Asylum Policy.
The divisions between North and South are growing wider by the day. As I’ve said before, European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker’s policy is that anyone that comes across the Mediterranean can register for asylum.
And that indeed is what is now happening, as the numbers that arrive dwarf all estimates and begin to head towards a potential exodus of biblical proportions.
Just look at the scenes in Kos this week. Migrant arrivals in Greece this year are at over 124,000, an increase year on year of 750 per cent for the same period. And there is no sign that these numbers will begin to slow.
The scenes of near riots we have witnessed this week are of people desperate to register. But what then?
Mr. Juncker thinks that under burden-sharing, the countries of the North of Europe will be happy to share the load. He seems astonished that the Northern countries now don’t want to play ball. But frankly that doesn’t matter in the EU; because of the Schengen Agreement there is nothing to stop people heading towards the richer North.
Indeed given Greece’s current financial plight, who can blame them for wanting to see these people leave their already impoverished country?
And so the Northern inwards migration continues, with the scenes at Calais no more than a symptom of a wider problem.
Thank goodness the United Kingdom did not join Schengen and is opted-out of the Common EU Asylum Policy. Despite those moves, businesses and people in Kent and elsewhere in the UK are already paying a heavy price for Juncker’s error.
