Johnson is right. Israel us the only liberal democracy in the Middle East. The avowed aim of Hamas, its paymaster Iran, and the palestinians is to wipe Israrel of the map, towards which they have bombarded Israel citizens with thousands of rockets, and now stabbings and other terrorist acts.These professors thereby condone and support Hamas & Palestinians in murder, homophobia,stonings, amputations,beheadings, female subjugation and all the other mediaeval practices of Islam 'the religion of peace'. against Israel, a small country that for its size leads the world in technology, medicine and the arts? Twisted thinking? Idiots? Anti-Semites? What do you think?
This 'core belief' cannoit be confirmed by facts. It's the usual scare story. We sell far more to the EU than they to us, so we will continue to benefit from free trade both ways.
As for influence, Britain has next-to-none, with a small minority of votes. Almost every piece of legislation UK has objected to has been passed in spite of it.If we stay in, it can only get worse. The dictatorship will decide.
Comment on: Exclusive: Big Labour donor John Mills explains why he’s bankrolling the campaign to leave the EU
Good to see wealthy and successful businessmen contradicting the lie that we will be worse off if we leave the EU. Putting their money where their mouth is!
Comment on: IoD denounces Theresa May’s anti-immigration speech as “myth” and “irresponsible rhetoric”
they would say that, would n't they? IoD mainly represents very large firms benefitting from cheap labour, whilst EU bureacracy discourages small firms from expanding into Europe and competing. The IoD have been wrong every time-including the time they wanted us to join the euro-and what a disaster that would have been. Other senior business figures think we would be better off out of the EU.
Comment on: CBI becomes the second organisation in a week to hit out at the government over this one issue
I may have got the wrong act-it's the one that ties us in to completely unrealistic carbon emission targets, also imposed on us by the EU. Germany, having abandoned nuclear, has reverted to coal, of which they have plenty. Tidal barrages are reliable and predictable, but there seem to be many practical and cost difficulties. On-shore or off-shore wind is almost totally useless, inefficient, costly and unreliable, and has to be backed up by diesel generators!. At the moment, nuclear is the only carbon-free option. Japan suffered a horrific tsunami-that was what did for the power station. Why Germany has reverted to coal, I don't understand. Our emissions are around 1% of the world's output, so we are crucifying our industry and holding consumers to ransom to minimal effect; even if I believed in the myth of CO2 causing global warmig, which has never been proved. A lot of theorising and dodgy computer modelling by people whose livelihood it is, whilst 'deniers' with no financial interest are castigated. People once believed the earth was flat...
