The London Speech – Wednesday

snowdaveSo, Acts of God permitting, Cameron’s speech will be held on Wednesday morning before PMQs and before the PM heads off to Davos.

Keen to give the speech abroad and having trailed most of it already, Guido imagines the rewriting is ongoing.

The speech will be held in a central London location rather than somewhere historical or memorable like Bruge. Details to follow.

He could have done it at Davos, except it would have gone down rather badly with that one world crowd…

    I support the muslim patrols. They have the right to harass women late at night and to call them animals for wearing skirts. Islam is peace. Our council would be more than happy to house foster children with a muslim family. Just today I got a call from a Mr Ibrahim asking if he and his 13 cousins can foster a 12 year old white girl. I said of course.

        If Cameron gives a cast iron guarantee vote on EU in 2018

        1) UK government bond yield would increase

        2) investors will stop investing in UK

        3) industry will move to EU. Including car manufacturing.

        So if UK is going to have a vote on EU, it should have it asap.

          But we should have the referendum ASAP.

          • Anonymous says:

            Markets hate uncertainty, UK economy will be destroyed by 2018 if vote is delayed by 5 year. They there might not be much choice if UK waits 5 years, UK will have to go cap in hand to Germany for money.

            So if we are going to have a vote on EU have it now. Cameron can say what minimum is acceptable, people vote on it. Cameron goes and negotiate, if he cannot get it UK leave EU.

          • Misternedderry says:

            I agree that having 5 years of not knowing is going to create unnacceptable uncertainty in the financial markets.

            We should have a 3 month campaign followed by the referendum, with business leaders and the true wealth creators, giving their opinion of what sort of independent UK they would like to do business in.

            Cameron and the Pro EU, ANTI-British establishment are going to use every dishonest, dirty, lying trick in the book to try to con the people to vote to stay in the EU.

            They will try to fool us again into believing a promise that this time, honest, it will ONLY be a trading agreement. No REALLY, WE MEAN IT THIS TIME… They would deliberately disrupt our markets and undermine international confidence and then blame the pro UK side for the disruption claiming that leaving the EU would be even worse.

            DO NOT TRUST Cameron and the rest of the Pro EU, ANTI UK traitors.

            They are going to spread as much shit as possible to stay in their corrupt, profoundly anti-democratic gravy train.

            Of course is the referendum is defeated we will need to have another one and so on until we get the right answer.

          you need to do much better than call me a little Englander says:

          I think you are trying to say bond rates would increase, well, er, no, they’d go down, for a start we’d have £20bn a year less we’d need to borrow to give away

          Investors would leave the UK, er, well, no, more likely they’d flock here as a very safe haven

          Industry move to the EU, er, well, no. Including car manufacturing, cobblers.

          Do you seriously think if UK was not in the EU we’d stop eating pizza, no more driving French and German cars, no more holidays to Spain. Are you on the EU payroll by any chance?

          • Anonymous says:

            Issue is uncertainty. Markets and investors hate uncertainty. UK cannot afford uncertainty for 5 years.

            What is the problem of having a vote now on what is acceptable? Then negotiating within the next six months. By the end of the year another vote to decide whether UK is in or out.

          • Living in 96.98 percent white Merseyside says:

            We’d have to import many more foreign workers if investors flock here. Surely the UK’s benefit scroungers would be the last to snap up all the jobs created.

      Has worked exactly as designed
      When they the Lisbon Treaty signed

      Who Want's Some! says:

      That is why UKIP must be used to bring Dave down in 2015. As I’ve said before this is a ‘long war’ that will take at least till 2020 to play out and we will pay a high prize over that time. But the alternative is to leave the current LibLabCon elite in power. That is why Dave will scare the party faithful with a Millebean win if they vote UKIP, but the reality is that Dave and Millebean really are the same they just take cash from two different ends of the Ponzi scheme that’s all. We need to remove the current elite and the best way to do that is to trigger a war in the Tory party that sees real Conservatives in power. We might have to endure Millibean for a couple of years and i do not underestimate the damage the clown could do, but Labour will be destroyed in the GA of 2020 with a new Tory Party that puts English needs first (Scotland will have gone UDI and Wales and NI will want the same by then). That is the only long term hope

        in the real world most of the other parties have MPs not just MEPs

        whereas Ukip

        Got a real world average of 3.3 % of the vote in the last twelve by-elections (abit on a poor turn out but despite the EU being discussed daily by the MSM)

        No MPs in Westminster.

        No members in the Welsh Assembly.

        No members in the Scottish Parliament.

        No elected mayors or police chiefs.

        No members in the Northern Irish Assembly.

        More non-members than current members.

        Lead by an MEP based in Brussels who couldn’t even defeat the Squeaker.

        2. Timing and Liebor. Somtimes events move quickly… Poll tax riot in Trafalgar Sq pretty quickly led to poll tax abolished and Maggie sacked..

        The same could happen during a Con or Liebor government. This terrifies the establishment. And so we should be talking about it more.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
