The Queen backs Brexit

I found the item Queen Elizabeth Reveals She Is Ready To Flee Britain, which, coming from a less-than-reliable source seemed rather far-fetched,

However, this following item seems to partially confirm the story. 

The queen inconveniently,is a Brexiter.

Revealed: Queen backs Brexit as alleged EU bust-up with ex-Deputy PM emerges
Her Majesty reportedly let rip at Nick Clegg during lunch at Windsor Castle

8 March, 2012

THE Queen has been hailed as a backer of Brexit tonight after details emerged
of an extraordinary alleged bust-up between her and Nick Clegg over Europe.

Her Majesty let rip at the then Deputy PM during a lunch at Windsor Castle,
The Sun has been told.

The 89-year-old monarch firmly told passionate pro-European Mr Clegg that she
believed the EU was heading in the wrong direction.

Her stinging reprimand went on for “quite a while”, leaving other guests
around the table stunned.

The account of the bombshell lunch during the last government – which a
handful of other government ministers also attended – has been relayed to
The Sun by a highly reliable source.

The senior source said: “People who heard their conversation were left in no
doubt at all about the Queen’s views on European integration.

It was really something, and it went on for quite a while.

The EU is clearly something Her Majesty feels passionately about.”

The monarch is also said to have revealed her Eurosceptic feelings during a
separate conversation with MPs at a Buckingham Palace reception.

One of a group of Parliamentarians in a circle with her at the time asked Her
Majesty for her thoughts on Brussels.

The Queen is said to have snapped back angrily: “I don’t understand Europe”.

A parliamentary source, who relayed the remark to The Sun, said: “It was said
with quite some venom and emotion. I shall never forget it”.

The claims will explode a furious controversy.

Brexit-backing Tory MPs are already leaping on The Sun’s revelations as a
strong sign the Queen is secretly on the side of Leave ahead of the landmark
EU referendum on June 23.

But British monarchs are deemed to be above politics and have always tried
hard to stay out of divisive issues.

The upcoming EU referendum is one of the most divisive in decades, splitting
the country down the middle on whether to remain or leave.

Buckingham Palace and Mr Clegg tried to pour cold water on the bust-up claim,
but neither expressly denied a heated debate between the Queen and the
former Lib Dem leader had taken place.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen remains politically neutral, as she has for 63 years. We would never comment on spurious, anonymously
sourced claims.

The referendum will be a matter for the British people.”

Former Lib Dem boss Mr Clegg told The Sun: “I have absolutely no recollection
of it.

I don’t have a photographic memory. But I think I would have remembered
something as stark or significant as you have made it out to be.

No doubt you’ll speak to someone else and they’ll say, ‘I was there I heard
it’. Fine.

But I really can’t remember it at all.

Anyway, without sounding pompous, I find it rather distasteful to reveal
conversations with the Queen.”

Despite the longstanding tradition for Royals to stay out of politics, The
Queen was seen to have controversially intervened in the referendum on
Scottish independence in September 2014.

In remarks widely judged to have been a call to keep Great Britain together,
Her Majesty told well-wishers after a Sunday church service that voters
should “think very carefully” before making their decision.

It is believed the remark had been carefully cooked up by the Queen’s top
official Sir Christopher Geidt and Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood —
who is the PM’s most senior mandarin — after the government appealed for her
help when polls showed a surge in support for the ‘Yes’ campaign.

The only other time the Queen was embroiled in a major political controversy
was in 1986, when The Sunday Times reported that then PM Margaret Thatcher’s
social policies and attitude to the Commonwealth caused Her Majesty dismay.

Buckingham Palace issued a string of denials but the Sunday Times stood by its

It emerged the source was the Queen’s Press Secretary Michael Shea, who was eventually forced to leave his job

Fears are also growing the Queen will come under heavy pressure from No10 to make a pro-EU intervention during her official 90th birthday celebrations in
mid-June, just days before the nationwide vote.

Every word of the monarch’s public utterances at the time will be pored over
by observers for any sign of her personal feelings.

Within Royal circles, the Duke of Edinburgh’s anti-EU views are also widely

The 94-year-old has been overheard making his significant dislike of Brussels
very clear in private remarks.

But the views of younger members of the Royal Family are less well known.

Prince William was dragged into a bitter row last month when remarks in a
speech he made at the Foreign Office were interpreted as being a tacit
signal that he wants the UK to stay in the EU.

Kensington Palace insisted the Duke of Cambridge had not meant give any
backing to either side.

Anti-EU campaigner and Tory MP Jacob Rees Mogg said: “I’d be delighted if this was true and Her Majesty is a Brexiter

The reason we all sing God Save The Queen so heartily is because we always
believe she is there to protect us from European encroachment.”

Another leading Tory Eurosceptic, MP Steve Baker, said: “This is a happy day
for those of us who have sworn allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen, her
heirs and successors.

I would be delighted to welcome Her Majesty to our cause.

I’ve insisted the government must not to drag the monarchy into this debate,
but I may have to make an exception to my high principles on this occasion.”

Don’t voters have a right to know what the Queen thinks on the EU?

By TOM NEWTON DUNN, Political Editor

OUR revelations will trigger an almighty row, because the Queen loathes little more than being dragged into an ugly political knife fight.

Constitutionally, it is vital for the monarch to remain about the fray, no
matter how important the issue is – and they don’t come much bigger than Brexit.

Buckingham Palace may even go as far as formally denying her anti-EU
remarks that we are reporting were ever made.

Yet Her Majesty’s most senior officials pointedly did not do so tonight.
Neither did Nick Clegg.

We would also not be taking the big step in reporting them if they had not come from two different and impeccably placed sources.

The Queen is very arguably the most respected stateswoman in the world.

If she has a view on something as big as Brexit, don’t voters have a right
to know what it is?

Hate it as she might, Her Majesty now has form for political interference.

It is now beyond doubt that she made a very careful intervention in the
Scottish independence referendum to back a vote for the union.

Can it be right that the Queen’s politics should only be known when she and
the Prime Minister deem it so between them?

It is a massive debate. But remember who started it.

Queen Elizabeth Reveals She Is Ready To Flee Britain
The Queen was overheard saying that military intelligence suggests that if Britain doesn't leave Europe then World War 3 will occur.

19 May, 2016

Queen Elizabeth stunned BBC production staff yesterday while preparing to deliver the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament, hinting that she is planning to abdicate the throne and flee the UK, a BBC insider claims.

One is making the necessary preparations to abandon ship,’ Her Majesty said. ‘Aviolent storm is coming, the likes of which Britain has never seen.

BBC staff ‘stunned’

Her Majesty was speaking to her advisors while taking on the Parliament Robe of State and Imperial State Crown in the Robing Chamber, however she was already wearing a microphone and her comments were heard by the whole gallery.

She seemed angry that she had to remain neutral in her speech.  She said there is solid intelligence from military top brass that if we don’t Brexit there is an inevitable World War 3 scenario that will play out,’ the insider said.

World War 2 will seem like a bump in the road compared to this.  I must warn my subjects,’ the Queen said.

BBC cover up

The line was cut off at this point and BBC production staff were urgently addressed by the director John Kirby.  He said he had been warned by BBC executives that the Head of State had been ‘shooting her mouth off a lot lately‘ and that ‘we must all ignore, forget, delete from our memories everything that we heard.’

He said there wasn’t going to be a scandal on his watch.’

Queen Elizabeth’s abdication

What does Queen Elizabeth know that we don’t?  She is certainly privy to information that is kept from the public.  The possibility of a geopolitical conflict, culminating in World War 3, has been discussed by Britain’s politicians this past week.  By warning advisors that she has made the necessary preparations to flee the country, is she hinting that she has inside information of the darkest kind?

Brexit: Voter registration website crashes due to surge in enrollments

Brexit or not Europe s voters cooler on Union survey

9 June, 2016

United Kingdom lawmakers are demanding that Britons get more time to register to vote in the referendum on European Union membership after a technical glitch prevented last-minute registration.

The latest betting odds on website Betfair show the implied probability of a British vote to stay in the European Union have risen to nearly 76 percent on Thursday.

About 132,000 of the 525,000 people who did successfully register on Tuesday were aged under 25, compared with about 13,000 from the 65-74 age group.

Urging voters to think of the next generation he said: "I hope that when people go to vote on June 23 they think about their children and grandchildren, they think about the jobs and the opportunities they want for them, the sort of country we want to build together and they vote to say "we don't want the little England of Nigel Farage", we want to be Great Britain and we are great if we stay in these organisations and fight for the values we believe in".

Although the website was down for only two hours, a Downing Street spokesperson said it had been chose to extend the deadline by 48 hours to allow potential voters a further chance to sign up.

European Commission technocrats have banned the word ‘Brexit’ from official communications, instead encouraging staff to use the ominous-sounding “British situation.” RT takes a look at EU censorship and the latest in the referendum contest.

Mandarins in Brussels have lately avoided the term ‘Brexit’ in official press conferences, although officials say they still use the ‘B’ word in internal communications.

While the ban does not apply to commissioners, EC President Jean-Claude Juncker avoided using the term at the G7 gathering in Japan.

According to a leaked email obtained by Politico, the EU commission has issued official lines to take on the June 23 referendum.

'Brexit could lead to the fragmentation of the West' - William Hague

These include the noble recognition that it is “for the British people to decide if they want the UK to remain a member of the European Union,” and the worrying admission that the commission has no “plan B” in the event Brits actually decide to leave.

The Commission does not want to enter into the details of plan B, because we do not have a plan B, we have a plan A: Britain should stay in the European Union as a constructive and active member of the EU.

Partisan pasties

The Remain camp won a ringing endorsement from an unusual source on Monday – the Cornish Pasty Association (CPA).

The industry body announced its support for remaining in the EU, citing the bloc’s protected food names system.

CPA chairman Jason Jobling said as there is “no clear evidence available to demonstrate that Brexit would enable that protection to continue, the CPA supports Britain remaining in the EU and being able to participate in that system.

Voter registration extension faces legal challenge

Whitehall’s controversial decision to pass urgent legislation extending the voter registration deadline for the EU referendum could face legal action.

Leave.EU founder Arron Banks said there are grounds for a judicial review into the move, which he described as “unconstitutional.

Urgent legislation was tabled after the government’s voter registration website crashed under the weight of user traffic on Tuesday night, two hours short of the original cut-off point.

France sharpens the guillotine

French officials are reportedly keen to punish the UK in the event of a Brexit as a way of deterring other nations from leaving the union.

According to sources quoted in Politico, France plans to push other EU states to rapidly void all existing treaties and agreements binding Britain to the EU.

Paris will be in a rush to withdraw subsidies, re-evaluate trade relationships sector by sector, and deny British supervisory bodies recognition from the EU.

Ironically, France has the second highest level of Euroskepticism in the bloc, according to a Pew Research Center survey published on Tuesday. Just 38 percent of French people support the EU.

London’s pre-vote gold rush

Gold sales have risen in the UK since the latest polls indicate the Leave campaign is gaining momentum.

London-based ATS Bullion reported a 5-10 percent rise in sales, while said the growth in demand from the UK is outstripping other regions.

In the coming weeks, we’re expecting to be busy,” said GoldCore director Mark O’Byrne.

The recent polls [on Brexit] are going to create more jitters ... that should lead to quite robust demand as we run into polling day.

"This desperate scaremongering from the British govt and its organs, the EU, and the ‪#‎Remain‬ campaign they are running is getting absurd.

"Behind closed doors, the Russian govt may very well prefer to see ‪#‎Brexit‬ for geopolitical reasons.

"But more to the point - unlike Obama, Merkel & Hollande who have all issued open threats against the British people, and nearly every other Western leader, institution, and org - Russia is NOT taking an official position or interfering in the vote, as it is a domestic affair and process.

"Because ‪#‎Russia‬ as a matter of principle supports sovereignty as the bedrock of international law and relations, while the West does everything in its power to erode it. The UK's referendum on continuing membership in the EU or not, is just one more crystal clear example of that fact."

Russia's Silence Conceals a Preference for Brexit

On balance, a British withdrawal from the EU would bolster Russia's preferred geopolitical narratives and make it more difficult for the West to counter Russian power plays.
