Scared of Brexit? Don’t be!

Are you falling for the the bullshit that we are being spun by the political classes? We were lied to when our nation was dragged in the 'Common Market' and over 3 or 4 decades our country has been become wrapped up in so much red tape and political dishonesty it does not bare thinking about.

We have a youth who have been convinced that we will be isolated in some sort of poverty trap when we leave (if they let us) but in fact, we are in a different world to the one that gave up when we sold our soul to the EU. There is now a world trade agreement, we do not actually need trade agreements with Europe, they are already in place, but they are being used to scaremonger innocent people. We are worth more to the EU than they are to us....let us not forget that!

After a year of political high drama and turbulence, and given the seeming parliamentary impasse over the Prime Minister’s deal, there are massive anxieties about the consequences of leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement in place. Will it plunge us into an economic depression as some doom-mongers predict? Will prices rocket and essential goods be in short supply? Will there be riots on the streets as the ugly new social divisions opened up by Brexit play out?

I don’t doubt for one moment these concerns are wholly understandable and we are right to focus on them. But we should also count our blessings. We are not the only country experiencing turmoil — and for many of our neighbours it is far worse. Around Europe, many leaders are spending Christmas contemplating chaos and confusion politically, and widespread public dissatisfaction, growing unrest and even violence. For some, economic winter is already descending.

The level of corruption that has engulfed the EU is beyond imagination, but what are we to expect from an administration that does not have accountability? What are we to expect from a club that makes decisions in private, one that punishes it's members by making them forfeit their pension if they criticise the EU? This 'club' is rotten to the core.

We have seen this club create debt throughout Europe and then force the citizens who were INNOCENT to pay the price. The UK will have absolutely no commercial losses by leaving, despite the scaremongering, but we may just be saving ourselves from the downward vortex that is engulfing the EU, one that will not end well.

There is only one thing we should fear more than leaving, that is remaining.

President of Egypt is accused of ‘fat-shaming’

So the President of Egypt has taken drastic steps to deal with the country’s spiralling obesity problem. 

Egyptians have been cracking jokes on social media after the Egyptian president went on a 20-minute televised rant complaining about the country’s obesity crisis. Authoritarian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi went on his second tirade against obesity in as many months when health minister Hala Zayed presented new numbers on the weight of Egyptians on Saturday.

Interrupting her, he asked, “Why are we doing this to ourselves?”

35 percent of adults – some 19 million people in the country of 100 million – are obese, again the world’s highest rate, as well as 10.2 percent of Egyptian children, or around 3.6 million. Yet again, we are putting political correctness before what is right. Is it right to humour people who are killing themselves and their children with bad diet and total indifference to good health. This is reaching EPIDEMIC proportions in many countries now and something has to be done about it soon.
