It’s Not Britain That Should Be Worried
Amidst all the hyperventilation from financial pundits, what might these figures be suggesting? Contrary to the propagated bunk that Britain would suffer economically from withdrawal from the European Union is the simple fact that Britain is a net contributor to the European Union. According to published figures, it appears Britain contributes around 21% of European Union net receipts. In other words, membership of the European Union is a net drain on British finances. Could the markets be telling us that it is the Eurozone, not the United Kingdom, which is facing a financial crisis?

To call for a Canadian National Referendum to stop fast tracking Immigrants into Canada
Many Canadians were not aware that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals would “fast track” 35,000 refugees into Canada at the taxpayers expense which cost Canadians millions upon millions of dollars and increased security risks to everyone across the entire country.
The Liberal government did not ask Canadians if this was OK. They just went ahead and bypassed policy and spent our tax dollars. Now the “refugees” are here, getting settled and the aftermath from bypassing due process and policy is showing. This cannot happen again and this Liberal Government must be stopped.
