If I wanted Britain to fail …To follow, not lead; to decline, not prosper; to despair, not dream. I would start with sovereignty. Even after the vote to leave, I’d continue to cede all law making to the unelected EU bureaucrats in Brussels. In return for this I would pay an exit fee of £100 billion and remain within the protectionst Single Market, ignoring the open possibilities for trade agreements with the US and Anglo spere nations. I’d police myself ruthlessly to ensure that I continue to comply with all EU laws and pay vast fines if I break rules whilst other members continue to flaunt the rules with impunity. I’d give up any remaining judicial authority that I have and look to the European Court of Justice to arbitrate in all our affairs I’d show the world how selfless I am by keeping our borders open to the vast Muslim hordes who have accepted Frau Merkel’s open invitation to come and live in Europe.
If I wanted Britain to fail…I’d cover up any Muslim attacks on our society with claims of lone wolf, no link to terrorism claims, quickly burying the news with fake stories about president Trump, President Assad or President Putin. I would demonise any perpetrator of a revenge attack as being part of a right wing, hate group that has to be eliminated. I would direct the police to stamp out any questioning of the multicultural message. I would effectively kettle the likes of Tommy Robinson, Nigel Farage and others to ensure their awkward messages are never given the oxygen of publicity by the mainstream media. I would introduce legislation to shut down websites like Going Postal and Breitbart to keep the public in ignorance. I would ensure talented, pragmatists such as Jacob Rees-Mogg, Owen Patterson and John Redwood are never elevated to positions of power.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I’d ban any mention of Christianity in our schools, I’d segregate classes into boys and girls and allow the wearing of hijabs or burkas. I would also ban crucifixes so that no offence would be given to our burgeoning Muslim population. I’d ensure young children are taught about the benefits of diverse sexual orientation and encourage them to explore and experiment with their sexuality. I would focus science education on manmade climate change and ensure that they were aware that we never had named storms before 2015 and worse weather would come unless they changed their lifestyles. I’d ensure that more and more children take out large loans to take University courses in subjects that add no value but provides an opportunity to extensively expose them to the thinking of the liberal intellectuals who have pervaded all our institutions.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I would create countless new regulations and make the old ones more draconian. They would be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers and lobbyists could understand them. That way small businesses with big ideas wouldn’t stand a chance – I’d give generous tax breaks to Google, Apple, Facebook, Goldman Sachs and others to ensure they help spread the right message, restrict the bloggosphere and reward the favoured elites. I’d force manufacturers to shut down production of successful British brands such as the Landrover Discovery and high performance Dyson vacuum cleaners for failing to meet EU safety and environmental regulations. Meanwhile I’ll allow German manufacturers like VW and Bosch to mislead the British public with exaggerated claims for their products without penalty.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I’d be the only country in Europe to enshrine impossible CO2 reduction targets in law. I’d take more than my share of the greenhouse emissions reduction targets and give others countries a free ride because of it. I’d make everyone feel guilty for using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses, and powers the economy. I’d make cheap energy like gas and coal expensive, so that expensive energy like wind and solar would seem cheap. I would all-but-outlaw Britain’s most abundant sources of energy. I’d shut down our existing nuclear and coal and make shale gas so difficult and costly it wouldn’t be worth doing. I’d announce a ban on diesel and petrol cars so that we would lose what is left of our car industry and only the elite would be able to have their own cars in the future. I’d turn a blind eye to Germany building new coal fired electricity generating stations. I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation to an economic suicide pact. I would concede entire industries to our global economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost billions. I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private.
If I wanted Britain to fail … For every concern, I’d invent a crisis; and for every crisis, I’d invent a bogeyman. I’d encourage the EU to expand into the Russian sphere of influence. I’d run down our own defences but support the creation of a European Army to stare down Putin. I’d bomb the allies of Assad even though they are the only ones fighting IS on the ground. I’d try and get Turkey into the EU so that we might have more workers willing to accept very low pay to come to the UK to prop up the Ponzi scheme that is our economy for a little longer. I’d bestow £12 billion a year in foreign aid ensuring it goes on rewarding placemen, crony executives, reducing carbon footprints and into the hands of the local despots – I’d seek to bring about regime change where strong leaders do not share my world view on human rights.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, fishermen to fish, miners to mine, builders to build and driller to drill. And because I don’t believe in free markets, I’d invent false ones. I’d devise fictitious products—like carbon credits—and trade them on imaginary markets. I’d raise prices and disguise this as a subsidy to prop up uneconomic green industries. I’d convince people that this would create jobs and be good for the economy. I’d make it easier to stop industry than start it – easier to kill jobs than create them I’d make it impossible to fire the lazy or incompetent. I’d completely open our borders and incentivise economic migrants with the promise of generous benefits and free health care paid for by ever increasing taxes levied on the few. I’d ensure that I could buy the votes by making beneficiaries of the handouts and plethora of public sector jobs greater in number than those actually creating real value. I’d put my like thinking cronies in highly paid executive positions of publicly funded charities and NGO’s. I’d encourage them to lobby the government to do my bidding.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I would prey on the goodness and decency of the ordinary people.
I would only need the BBC, the MSM, schools and the civil service to convince them that by fully leaving the EU would be to enter a dystopian world where there would be no jobs, no security, migrant camps, no future – a Britain unable to determine its destiny or be successful in a terrifying world of uncertainty and change.
If I wanted Britain to fail … I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing. Theresa May and her pathetic cabinet of lapdogs are doing an excellent job.
