The Long Con, Definition : A "long con" is an extended setup in an attempt to rob or cheat someone else. it usually involved an elaborate story that is executed over many weeks to months, aimed at convincing the target that the con artist (or thief) is legitimately a friend and trustworthy resource. at the end of the long con, the con artist gets the victim to voluntarily put themselves in precisely the position the con artist wants them in"
After a couple of UKIP shockers, "the powers that be" are now genuinely worried that we are getting far to popular than is comfortable. That's good for us but very bad for them. Nigel's outspoken "truths" in Brussels are going viral each time they are released. Why? Because he speaks for us, he speaks the truth and he's got bottle!
Although the People's Pledge seems like a genuine attempt at getting our referendum on the EU, unfortunately, some of the public will be involved in a cross party "Long Con".
The Daily Mail launched the campaign and it is backed by one and all as a promise of true democracy and fairplay. Those two well known stool pigeons that we trusted long ago to "change the party from within", Douglas Carswell and Dan Hannan are also involved. I've often wondered why men who claim to be Eurosceptic don't leave the Conservative Party and I've long since come to the conclusion that they are in place to keep the Eurosceptic Conservative voters happy.
Once the EU funded propaganda machine is in full swing the message will be: "We will have the referendum to prove to you that the British People are not stupid enough to vote us out, they realise we need Europe!"
Infact, The Daily Mail insists "The Mail doesn’t support a wholesale withdrawal from the EU. There are many important trade partnerships to preserve".
Paul Remfry from UKIP quotes Nigel Farage on his blog
"This is transparently not the case. We can have free trade with the EU without being a member of that organisation.
"Currently the EU has trading deals either completed or in negotiation with over 60 different countries. And everyone from Neil Kinnock to Giscard d'Estaing has said that if Britain wants to set up a trade only deal then it could.
"And on Commonwealth Day we are reminded that there is a whole world out there that Britain should be trading freely with. But our membership of the EU's antiquated Customs Union prohibits us from negotiating such deals.
"I call on everybody to get in touch with the Daily Mail to make these facts clear to them."
Read the wording :
"The People's Pledge
All the political parties make pledges about policy and manifesto commitments. We believe that ANYONE standing for elected public office should now make a simple pledge that will restore faith in British politicians and in British politics.
The idea is simple – let’s start a mass movement that sends a clear message to EVERY politician in Britain. Before we vote for ANYONE, we want three commitments from the candidate - straightforward, simple and easy to understand.
1. Tell the truth (shouldn't that be a given?)
2. Admit when you are wrong. (they have this one down to a t, just say sorry and it will all go away).
3. Listen to the voices of the voters more carefully.(this should already be happening, what's going to change?)
What utter baloney!
When you commit to real integrity and honesty again, we’ll commit to voting.
YEAH RIGHT... In how many manifesto's have the three parties promised a referendum? How many times have promises been broken by the Conservative Party this time?
Take the current fiasco with the "Votes for Prisoners" issue. Our politicians know that the majority of the public don't agree with this stupid policy, it goes against everything that's decent and British yet they are still not going to repeal it. The most we are going to get is another kangaroo Committee (consisting of Europhile "experts") declaring that it will be illegal/impossible for us to ignore the European Human Rights Act. It will take a while of course because they're hoping we will have all calmed down when they break the news.
The choice is simple. If you want to get out of Europe don't vote for the three major parties because THEY WILL GO BACK ON THEIR WORD, THEY WILL LIE AND THE EU WILL SLOWLY SWALLOW US WHOLE!
Of course, the only way we will get out of Europe, is to vote UKIP
