Quote of the Day

Dominic Cummings ponders how to deal with the CBI:

“Whenever you read ‘the CBI said…’, remember they also said 1997-1999 that we HAD to join the euro or else inward investment would flood out. Also, remember that many of the companies who keep the CBI afloat have vital legal interests in Brussels (e.g. BA and landing slots). Remember that many of their members do NOT agree with the leadership. When Business for Sterling polled CBI members in 1999, we discovered that the CBI leadership had been lying about the views of their own members. Within a year, the CBI had fled from the euro battle. The same can be done again…”

    Remember Stephen Sutton's Teenage cancer fund says:

    “The same can be done again…”

    Many of UK’s 4.4 million SMEs want out of the EU because it’s crippling us with over regulation, red tape and ever increasing costs.

    Please do it, Guido.

    The CBI are treacherous scum ,who seriously believe that our freedom to govern ourselves should come second to their imagined commercial interests.

      And guess who has beenin the thick of it recently and who was ‘elevated’ to Lord status and who is a lying two-faced fucking Rsole?

      Can you guess who it is?

      It’s Lord Digby Jones – who just happens to be a SHYSTER by trade.

    The BBC says:

    Half of our trade is with the EU! Think of the destruction to our economy if that trade was lost! And if that doesn’t scare you, remember: if we leave the EU, many experts warn that your fingers and toes could drop off and your nose might turn inside out.

“Digger” Murdoch says:

Is it just me, or is Nigel Farage just a top hat and a monocle away from being a Batman villain?
