The Bloomberg Speech: Dave EU Speech Tomorrow 8am

Guido was at lunch when the news emerged that Dave is heading to Bloomberg tomorrow morning at 8am for that speech.

It’s where Nick Clegg launched his 2010 manifesto and Ed Balls conceded defeat in the Labour leadership race and set out his unsuccessful job application to be a Miliband’s first choice Shadow Chancellor.

More glamorous than Brugge…

        Issue is simply this. Cameron will give a vote on something he will negotiate. Answer will be yes or no. No will be voted by people who want to stay in EU as it is now, people who want to leave EU and by people who want more integration.

        If no wins what happen next? Does Cameron ask for another 5 years to negotiate?

          Back to the Future says:

          Cameron is lying.

          He can ‘negotiate’ the sum total of jack shit.
          Any negotiation regarding terms of membership must, under the Lisbon treaty, invoke Article 50, a nations intention to leave the EU, something Cameron will never do.
          Then and only then, can negotiations regarding terms of membership begin and those negotiations could drag on for decades.

          Worse still, the terms negotiated may well be worse than actual membership itself, leaving little or no choice but to remain.

          The ONLY viable option is in / out, now and build our futures accordingly, outside of the current fear and loathing relationship, we have at present.

            Cameron well tell or do ant thing to continue to be a PM after 2015. His speech will be just around getting votes for this propose.

            Clegg wants to be an EU Commissioner, if Clegg even thinks Cameron wants UK to be out of EU, Clegg will bring down the government.

            What still keeps this government going is Cameron’s need to be PM and Clagg’s need to enjoy trappings of power and then become an EU Commissioner before the next election.

        Some of you seems to think EU is forcing UK to stay in EU. EU hasn’t occupied UK or colonising UK.

        EU is a members club with rules to stay in as members, UK can stay in or leave. It is entirely up to UK.

            It is true the average person has no idea how much pressure is being put on the Westminster elite to obey the European Empire. Pressure, bribes, threats, scaremongering and blackmail are what the EU is good at. Is that a good reason to stay in?

          I don’t think anyone really knows what the EU is for. And you don’t seem to know what Marriage is about.


          • Lie back and think of Europe says:

            That’s one thing that’s been absolutely clear about the UK being a memeber of the EU. We are being throughly fucked by the rest of Europe all of the time we are members. I think that a little respite from the rape would be great.

      Dave, your long awaited speech
      Puts referendums out of reach
      We’ve not forgot the CAST IRON VOW
      And nobody believes you now
      So even if you makes it law
      No dice, we’ve heard it all before

      The Tory troops you try to muster
      All realise the speech is bluster
      Your hope to shoot the UKIP Fox
      Won’t surface in the ballot box
      Now UKIP’s got you on the ropes
      And blown away all Tory hopes

      We’re all fed up pissed off and grumpy
      Sick to death of Ange and Rumpy
      We do not want your EU flag

All of you must now realise that the very best you can hope for is a decade or two in opposition if you are lucky, However a large swathe of you will become unemployed so over the next couple of years you need to do some serious sucking up to those who may see fit to employ you. Pontificating about what needs to be done in order to win in 2015 is pie in the sky. Gay marrige, the EU, Immigration and the economy have already destroyed any glimmer of a victory that may have existed. Its time to wake up and smell the coffee. Political defeat is stareing you in the face.The electorate will all be watching the major influx of immigrants from Rumania and Bulgaria collecting their family allowance, disability benefits, housing benefits, jobseekers allowances not to mention there free acess to the overloaded NHS and free education after contributing absolutly nothing. Meanwhile their family allowance and other benefits are cut and Granny is forced to sell her home to pay for care after a lifetimes contributions to the states coffers. You couldn’t make it up

      “We expect that this is causing the smell but we are working with partners locally to rule out other potential sources.”

      He added: “The odour is detectable at very low concentrations and should dissipate naturally over time.”

      The HPA said in a statement: “The smell drifting over Southern England today poses no risk to public health.

      “The odour, which is similar to rotten eggs, has been noticed by people mainly in Kent, East and West Sussex and some parts of Surrey.”

    Re Dave’s Director of Public Prosecutions and his proposals for tax prosecutions:

    · Will the Director of Public Prosecutions please advise how many new policemen and nurses will be appointed, and how many schools and hospitals will be built with the monies harvested from prosecutions for tax evasion?
    · Will the Director of Public Prosecutions please advise when these policemen and nurses will be in post, when work on building the schools and hospitals will begin and when they will open?
    · Can he please direct us to documents evidencing the government’s commitment to the provision of these new and very welcome resources?
    · Will Mr Starmer please confirm that the monies harvested from the prosecution of tax evasion will be hypothecated for the purposes he has stated?
    · Will he please confirm that these funds have not already been committed to government expenditure on welfare payments, interest payments on the national debt, social work, the government car pool, MP’s expenses, foreign aid, civil service pensions, defence, health care, education et al?
    · Is Mr Starmer aware that even recovering all of the £14b additional revenue which he states is being lost to tax evasion it would not pay the interest charges on the national debt for more than four months?
    · Can he explain how it will therefore pay the wages of policemen and nurses in perpetuity, and also finance the building of the schools and hospitals?
    · Is the Director of Public Prosecutions lying his head off about the use of tax revenues to persuade the people of the nation not to lie to the government about their tax liabilities?
    · Does he believe this is an efficacious and morally defensible strategy?
    · Will he begin the prosecutions with members of the civil service, government special advisers and high profile BBC presenters, thousands of whom are reported to have been paid through personal service companies to avoid tax?
    · In scraping the bottom of the barrel for £14b to service a national debt of about £1 trillion has he inadvertently revealed how desperately close the country is to bankruptcy?
    · Would Mr Starmer care to swap his high horse for a nice motor with all the bits? Or does have the latter already?
