STOP-BREXIT! DO NOT BANKRUPT BRITAIN!

WE DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS. WE DO NOT HAVE TO BREXIT. 

STOP THIS SUICIDAL MADNESS. 

26 June 2017 - to the Leader of the Labour Party, UK.

Dear Jeremy Corbyn,

We just voted for Labour and congratulate you on your great personal campaign for this month’s election. We pretty much agree with the content of your manifesto. But – I personally fear that you might revert to extreme socialism if you gain power.

STERLING COLLAPSES 17% ON
BREXIT VOTE.
We are REMAINERS, representing the 16.8M – the 48% of gagged and muzzled voters – denied any representation by all politicians and the media – despite the recent strong swing away from Leaving. You and Labour could have won the Referendum for REMAIN, stopped Article 50 and you could – and should – STOP BREXIT. The majority of your younger supporters are mostly internationalists, Europeans and Remainers. If you again fudge the issues – and then damn REMAIN with faint praise, as you did at the Referendum, which you swung behind the Quitters, the 48% and your new youth wing – will again be betrayed. It is their future – not yours.

My 40+ years’ experience of tax & economic analysis is that BREXIT will bankrupt Britain. We will continue to insult 47% of our best customers – known as “Doing A Ratner”. All major blocs will circumvent us and deal with the EU. Devaluation is already costing £20 billion a year. It will take 10 to 20 years of detailed trade negotiations to replace the past 50 years of many hundreds of careful arrangements made and UK privileges won, via the EC. There will be 15 miles of freight queues at all our air and sea ports. We will be ruined and isolated. We risk losing Scotland and Ireland.

I am a member of the Tax Justice Network TJN and similar groups. I think the Quitters main motive is to escape the currently tightening net that will cut off tax-havens. Most VIPs are now tax-evaders (about £2.4 trillion of collectable UK tax and capital-flight is hidden tax-free in 75 tax-havens). The tax-evaders are desperate to back-pedal from EU jurisdiction – you have helped them. Theresa May’s husband, Philip, is an executive in $1.4 trillion Capital Group, an offshore, tax-free hedge-fund. $1,200,000,000,000. Such immensely powerful tax-evaders fund BREXIT. Farage is from that clique.

So, we urge you to put your old anti-EU prejudice behind you; step up and vow to STOP BREXIT, gain the support of the 48% - keep faith with your youth vote – and resoundingly win the next election. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain – including the necessary +60 seats. For our grandchildren and the nation please STOP BREXIT.

Regards,

Pauline and Noel Hodson

10 July 2017  - LETTER TO THE LEADERS OF LABOUR AND LIB-DEM PARTIES, UK.

“LABOUR CAUSED THE 2008/09 ECONOMIC CRASH” – OR DID THEY?


Dear Jeremy Corbyn and Vince Cable,

The Alt-Truth-Tories never tire of repeating that they inherited a broken economy from Labour – blaming Labour for the 2007-09 collapse. It seems the Lib-Dems and Labour are too weary to keep rebutting this lie. But please do counter such calumny, no matter how often repeated. “IT WAS THE BANKERS – STUPID”. Gordon Brown won high-praise for rescuing the UK  from collapse. Obama should have won a prize as he saved the US system from meltdown. The US Treasury count the cost to US Households as $19.2 trillion. It cost UK Households £1.2 trillion (Two years entire Budget). Please don’t be browbeaten by repetitive liars, insist on the truth every time.

Regards,

Pauline and Noel Hodson

BREXIT SHRUGGED

BREXIT SHRUGGED
By Mel Cooper
(Arithmetic by Noel Hodson)

BREXIT  MEANS  BREXIT ! 
Did the men and women who painted on their campaign bus that we would get £350 million a week for the National Health Service and other good causes forget to do the maths? Did anyone on the Remain side ever do the maths? Even if the figure were true – and we all know it is vastly inflated because most of our EU contribution comes back to the UK in grants – the whole total we contribute to the EU amounts to just two-point-four percent of the annual necessary spend of the UK government on all things. Yes, folks, just 2.4% percent of the UK's annual budget will no longer be sent to the EU that will, as they promised, clearly solve all the problems of our health care system, failing pension plans, welfare bills, infrastructure expenses, and education costs, to name but a few.

After we get back all the carefully negotiated special concessions, regional grants, shared Euratom, European Space Agency, Interpol and other vital cooperative projects - less than one percent of the UK's budget is used, with our enthusiastic input, authorship and agreement over forty-years, to support the development of poorer regions of Europe; who we then trade with and export UK goods and City services to - which makes us and them wealthier. 

With that one-percent* will we re-clad hundreds of buildings that are unsafe fire hazards, renew the infrastructure of the railways, fix all the pot-holes in the land, and pay to send all the pesky refugees and migrant workers back where they belong?

That is a whole one percent of the annual UK budgets that you are not going to have to disburse to the EU, to buy our membership of a trading community, of 550 million people, that gives us: 

unfettered access to the largest, wealthiest free market in the world, 

...EU subsidies for our farmers, universities and scientists,

...and many other things, including a strong voice and influence in decisions that are being made about problems like climate change, NATO, security against terrorism and so forth.

Brexit means we do not have to put anything into a common EU pot! Clearly, being a member of the EU means we must be supporting Socialism, or even quasi-Communism. Nigel Farage says so! And Nigel Farage is an honourable man! David Davis, Boris Johnson, Michael Gove: clearly they are all honourable men! Or conspiratorial liars. 

And we may, at present under the current system, be able to go to live in other countries in Europe on a whim, with various benefits, which of course means that they must need us more than we need them, and are happy for us to bring our magnificent culture and history and powerful pounds with us; but it also means that they, those people, can come and take jobs in our country if they want to. Who needs their taxes, their money spent on rent and food and clothes and entertainment? Who needs their exotic food and ways? Who cares if the jobs of nursing, teaching, strawberry picking, house building, or serving in pubs and cafes go unfilled by Brits, who don’t like such work; as long as we don’t have to put up with all those pesky foreigners? Well, at least the UK government won’t have to start thinking about how to welcome them, receive them, help them acclimatise, teach them English, or any of that other hopeless stuff.

We really have done a clever thing voting for Brexit. We are going to get all that sovereignty back for a start; control of our borders; laws on issues like worker’s rights that we can tinker with and dilute to our heart’s content. And we don’t have to sit around in Brussels or Strasbourg any more influencing a damned thing as the EU moves forward on issues such as trying to repatriate offshore money so that it can be taxed. One estimate I have heard is that the UK could repatriate £3 trillion pounds of illicit offshore UK money and solve all its debt problems in one go. But who wants to stay in the EU and help promote Europe-wide back-tax legislation to do that?

So your vote for Brexit is a dream come true. Just ask Rupert Murdoch, Paul Dacre, the Barclay twins, and Theresa May’s husband. Well done you, voting for what they need and believing what they told you!

And of course the Remainers must stop moaning. All this Freedom of Speech is so distracting. If you ask me or some of the Brexiteers I could name, it verges on being downright unpatriotic. Brexit means Brexit means Brexit and we are leaving the EU because the referendum, as everyone knows, definitely has the force of law and is an example of the Will of the People and not a foolish, wasteful invitation to a kind of mob rule.

"Brexit means Brexit" has become a standard joke across Europe, said with a dismissive Gallic shrug, used when nobody has a clue what to do next or how to solve a problem. 

Nevertheless, one thing does sadden me. The whole issue of the dream of a united Europe, living at peace with itself, recognising a commonality of culture and brotherhood and sisterhood, legislating for the best and most humane and kind aspects of humanity and community. We are turning our back on all that, on the idea that we have some responsibility for our neighbours and friends. Well – Ayn Rand would be very proud of us and we should immediately replace every copy of the Bible in schools and hotels and in the country with a copy of The Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged, because those texts will be our new Bible.

 *UK Budget 2016 £762 billion. £350 M per week = £18.2 billion; or 2.4%. One percent of UK Budget is £7.62 billion. UK gets back at least 2/3rds of its EU contribution - via policies that Westminster and UK MEPs have proposed and voted for.

BREXIT BANKRUPTING BRITAIN















26th June 2017 - LETTER TO JEREMY CORBYN - LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY:

26 June 2017 - ANOTHER SERIOUS WARNING in my latest letter to The Guardian:


Jonathan Freedland does not go far enough in his article, Can Brexit be stopped? The answer is in our hands – Guardian 24th June 2017. We do not have to proceed to commit economic and political suicide, urged on by obsessed Serial-Liar-Farage, adopted by autistic Tight-Lipped-Theresa, Boris-the-Clown, Et-Tu-Gove, Head-Boy-Rees-Mogg, Corbyn-the-Sly, and a bunch of IQ challenged red-necked, tax evading, octogenarian Colonel Blimps. The-People-Who-Have-Spoken haven’t the faintest clue of the complex dire consequences. Re-negotiating will absorb all our political resources for 10 to 20 years. Devaluation has cost us £20 billion per year. The EU will snatch The City’s trillions of transactions (£70 billion p.a. in tax). All global players will circumvent us to deal with the EU. We will lose Scotland and Ireland. Our migrant-labour industries will go bust. There will be 15 mile freight queues at all sea & air ports. Brexit will bankrupt Britain. We do NOT have do it. It is not a game. We can STOP BREXIT - and reform the EU from inside. Grow-up! Stop now, today.

(NB - Why Corbyn the Sly? Because, while I admire his surprising sterling performance and sensible ideas expressed in the run up to this Election; at the July 2106 Referendum Jeremy Corbyn did slyly damn Remainers with faint praise, letting in the Quitters. He is a long-time committed Leaver, and he voted with the Tories on triggering Article 50 to leave the EU, which Labour could have stopped. Like all the politicians and media, he refuses to acknowledge and colludes with gagging the 16.8 million, the 48%, who voted REMAIN. He is now slyly "sitting on the fence" about Hard or Soft Brexit, refusing to face the destructive realities of quitting the Customs Union and The Single Market. In this Hung-Parliament, The Labour Party, which Corbyn leads - could ally with all the other minority parties, against the Tories, and stop Brexit now. The EU leaders are saying they would welcome the UK back with open arms. We do NOT have to proceed with this crazy self-destruction; scrapping 60 years of careful building of the UK's relationship with the other 27 Members and insulting 47% of our best customers.  This sly, querulous old man, 50 years a naysayer, this back-room-lawyer turned celebrity leader - could and should STOP BREXIT.) 

WHO WON THE ELECTION?  13TH JUNE 2017 -  I agree with Polly Toynbee (Corbyn has rescued Britain from the chains of austerity. This is his moment – Guardian 13 June) where she writes “opinion polls may now be regarded as no better than political
astrology”. But I question her reasoning. Pollsters ignore a new force in politics. We, and most of our Remain friends, among the totally ignored 16.8 million 48% Remainers, along with the youth vote, did as Gina Miller, of Best for Britain, urged and voted tactically – not for Corbyn, not against May, not for the DUP – but against Brexit. Reality is dawning on the Quitters; this morning with The City losing more billions per day of Euros of business to the EU. Another election will bring the same tactical voting result. Britain does not want to be bankrupted by leaping off the White Cliffs of Dover with the ideological ill-informed Brexit lemmings. Gina Miller won the election. STOP SUICIDE BY BREXIT.

Sci-Fi & Socio-Economics


9 JUNE 2017 - THE UK RESULTS ARE IN. It is a Hung Parliament. Mrs May has lost her big gamble. "They" will all have to cooperate, until the next uncivilised, back-stabbing, sour, stupid-soundbite, time-wasting election. Dear God - we are bored and weary with banal political posturing - and tedious, endless, meaningless, idiotic gabbling. They could and should say what they mean to say in a fraction of the words and time. And we would get more progress. 

In the meantime - what to do about BREXIT? 

Form a negotiating team of 27 experts, representing ALL the UK parties. 27 to match the 27 EU heads of state. Include eighteen year olds. Publish the targets and process - because the public have a right to comment on this nation's future. Tight-Lipped-Theresa will have to grow-up and discuss things. Barrack-room lawyer Corbyn will have to grow-up and risk stating positive ideas that others might criticise and snipe at; as he has for 50 years.

Send the fascist, EU insulting, obsessed Nigel Farage, to Trump Towers, to join the sweaty-handed incontinent, serial liar Demented Donald, to work for the break-up of the United States of America. THE DISUNITED STATES. It will be Donald's and Nigel's revenge on The Establishment - before they are found secure and safe lifetime beds in a suitable mental-hospital. "Mr Comey! Ya don'ta showa me no respect. You is terminated" 

(PS - URGENT - do take Donald's nuclear codes away, before he presses buttons, imagining he is tweeting. Put him in a fake White House with a huge TV screen).

PARIS, CHINA AND DEMENTED DONALD

“The installation rates are absolutely mind-blowing,” says Lauri Myllyvirta, an energy and air pollution expert at Greenpeace in Beijing. China added 35 gigawatts of new solar generation in 2016 alone. “That’s almost equal to Germany’s total capacity, just in one year,” Myllyvirta says.
Every hour, China erects another wind turbine and installs enough solar panels to cover a soccer field, according to Greenpeace estimates.

WE ALL LOVE DONALD.  2ND June 2017. 



Trump’s attempted sabotage of the Paris Accord illustrates what a short-sighted bad businessman he is. The world is rapidly converting to renewable energy. There is no attempt to block USA growth by reducing fossil-fuels. That is paranoid talk from Demented Donald and Big-Oil. To rescue the Rust-Belt, Trump should pump-prime massive new green industries that will compete with China and others on renewables. Is it that America can’t compete? Instead of being a Luddite clown, he should convert all his Trump-buildings to green energy.  Like this Cotswold village:

Many new housing developments will be self-sufficient in energy – green energy – even in the UK. Solar panels now work well under cloud. Wind energy is very efficient and competitive. We have infinite amounts of wave & tide energy.

Three Reasons to Believe in China's Renewable Energy Boom

12 May 2017 - It has atrocious air pollution. It fears climate change. And it wants to be a "manufacturing monster" in renewables too.

From 2005 to 2014, production of solar cells in China has expanded 100-fold. As Chinese renewable manufacturing has grown, the costs of renewable energy technologies have dropped dramatically. Innovation has helped, but the main driver of reduced costs has been market expansion.[4] In 2015 China became the world's largest producer of photovoltaic power, with 43 GW of total installed capacity.[5][6] Sources from Mr. Perez states that the renewable energy and emissions from China as the new world leader of the Paris Climate Accord will reduce their emissions sooner than the year 2030

It is a brave new world. Think it through.

Well, the opposite view of USA withdrawing from the Paris agreement is that it is the only way to make America great again.

Look at China saying they will take up green policies "in the long term". Yes after the West's industries have been killed off by "climate" policies, you can see China's game a mile off.

And it goes on .......

BEST FOR BRITAIN - HUNG PARLIAMENT


31 May 2017

Dear Noel HODSON

WHAT IS TACTICAL VOTING? on YouTube

We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend which ended with last night’s TV Q&A with Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May. Last night we learned that May is as keen as ever on her bogus line that ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’ and Corbyn sought to delineate his party from the Tories on Brexit by committing to keeping trading arrangements and upholding rights from the EU.

We’re gearing up for the last 9 days of the campaign and we need your help more than ever!
As always, sharing our Tactical Vote Dashboard is top of our wish-list and generally talking about tactical voting with your friends, family and work colleagues. We've put together a great animation on tactical voting which explains the difference it can make. If you've also found a good way to explain tactical voting, then let us know!

We have another favour to ask of some of you. With the promise of an extraordinary turnout, particularly of young people we want to make sure we get out their vote. Thanks to your donations amazing organisations like Bite the Ballot, Citizens UK, My Life My Say and RizeUp got over a million 18-24 year olds to register, and we have some exciting projects in the pipeline and we would love to hear from you if you are:
  • Age 18-24
  • In the London area
  • Could come to central London at 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday) evening...
If you’re up for that please write to us at info@bestforbritain.org and we will tell you more.
Thanks so much, and please keep spreading the word so we can reduce May’s majority and fight an extreme Brexit.
Very best,

Eloise Todd
CEO, Best for Britain

MIND OVER MATTER

New Scientist 27 May 2017 reports three items which I link together as indicative of more subtle forces being recognised by mainstream conservative science. 

FIRST: "Quantum tests could show if minds are matter - by Anil Ananathaswamy."  This reports on proposals to yet again test "spooky action at a distance" or entanglement, whereby sub-atomic particles that were once together (entangled) then split apart and whizz off to opposite ends of the universe; but mysteriously stay in communication and mirror each other's state - instantaneously, faster than light speed. My outline partial idea is that all energetic events broadcast their presence and behaviour as expanding spheres. The particles are patterns on, and of, the spheres. When one particle is disturbed, the sphere is disturbed, which changes the other particle. I draw a simile from accepted science, being the carrier wave that travels outside a telephone cable, while we suppose that electrical pulses race along inside the cable carrying the "real" signal. Faraday, one of the pioneers of the trans-Atlantic cable signals, realised this reality after other engineers several times tried to boost the signals by increasing the voltage and only succeeded in melting the cable. The mysterious, ephemeral electromagnetic carrier-wave is the reality that accurately transmits the message. The electric current focuses the data. I liken the carrier-wave to the surfaces of the expanding spheres. The author asks if the brain has the quality of "action at a distance"? My guess is that it does, as does the telephone wire. Our thoughts are energetic, coherent events that exist outside of ordinary-conventional-science-space and are broadcast as spheres. 

SECOND: "Electrical tweak lets worm grow two heads - by Jessica Hamzelou." It is relatively "old" conventional science that DNA is in turn organised by electromagnetic forces which link the atoms, that make the molecules and that probably switch on sequences of  allegedly "junk DNA" in Epigenetics. My guess is that there is no "junk" in DNA and that all DNA is potentially useful - with uses built up since the beginning of time - which are triggered by environment factors. We, humans, have the entire history of all of life in our genes. I conjecture that the DNA forming electrical signals exist in The Aether, as stable radio-electromagnetic-data, which is just as robust as signals our telescopes receive from the edges of the observable universe. These signals, these waves and wavicles are in-formed and re-formed by all energetic events - which, as in the paragraph FIRST, above, are broadcast in spheres to the horizon of the observable universe. In turn these patterns, these signals, this robust, legible data, forms our DNA. DNA is now known to change rapidly in response to the environment.

THIRD: "Narwhals may help monitor ice sheet - by Adam Popescu." What strikes me about this report of global meltdown, is the use of transmitters attached to narwhales (whales with a spear for a nose) and the scattering of many floating disposable transmitters, to transmit data to satellites about polar sea temperatures. Science takes for granted that weak, battery powered signals - less than mobile-phone or human-brain signals, are coherently transmitted from the oceans, to space satellites - and back to ground based laboratories for analyses. Considered with the FIRST and SECOND articles above it is astonishing and significant that such broadcasts remain legible, and of course, eventually fill the observable universe as do all broadcasts. An alien civilisation with instruments more sensitive than LIGO (searching for Gravitons - see my GRAVITY theory), could receive and read this data from our oceans. I think that all such broadcasts re-form and in-form the stuff of the universe, the Aether. All things, from galaxies to photons, broadcast their presence and processes - which is how we know they exist. 

"There are more things in Heaven and Earth Horatio..."

These notes link up with my Gravity idea:
