The last two and a half years have told us a lot about Brexit.

What we have learnt most of all is that only a minority in Parliament and the Media back Brexit.  In fact from the day after the Referendum they were asking what sort of membership of the EU might be consistent with a vote to Leave.  Would we be in the Customs Union or Single Market (Common Market)?  The Conservative's red line was the Customs Union and they ensured that this was embedded in negotiations from the start (See Brexit negotiations began by accepting Customs Union).

However, David Davis pressed on with a Canada style option for Brexit.  We now know that even the Bank of England predicts that a WTO option with a transitional period would have almost no effect on our wealth (See Bank of England gives green light to WTO Brexit) even without a Free Trade Agreement.  Consistent with this we saw a Withdrawal Agreement by the UK and EU in March 2018 that permitted a Canada or WTO Brexit.  The only area remaining was to tidy up arrangements in Ireland.  Unfortunately, from the beginning, the Conservatives had inserted membership of the Customs Union as the preferred Brexit, the Irish stuck to this as their solution to the Irish problem and the WTO Brexit was in trouble.

Amber Rudd, George Osborne and Mark Carney went to the Bilderberg Meeting in Turin in June 2018 to find out what the European Movement wanted.  The Bilderberg Group was founded by the European Movement to provide funds and and focus for European Integration - See Inside Bilderberg.

Amber Rudd returned with the outline of the Chequers Plan which is now the substance of the "Withdrawal Agreement" and was re-appointed to the Cabinet.  Her Brother is a Director of "Best for Britain" which provides funds for the European Movement's activities in the UK such as "The Peoples Vote" campaign. (See Who is paying for Remain and Peoples Vote).  The European Movement/Bilderberg delegation that triggered Chequers was scarcely covered in the UK media:

What we now know about Brexit

We now know that the Conservatives are heavily controlled by the European Movement through its Business wing, the Bilderberg Group.

In 2016 the Treasury and Bank of England considered the possibility of a Leave Vote in the Referendum and produced predictions for the UK economy in 2017-2018 that were catastrophic.  They involved c.£120bn of immediate damage.  Within 6 months they had backtracked on these predictions (See Remain Predictions for Brexit).  We now know that the Bank of England and Treasury make predictions that are incorrect about Brexit.  However, the important point is that the recent predictions for the effect of Brexit are all for less than £120bn loss so we know that the population voted to Leave when threatened with a greater loss than is now threatened under the worst possible assumptions.

Since the Referendum wages are up and employers are "blaming" this on falling migration ( BBC article Wage Rises Accelerate to the Fastest Pace since 2008).  Unemployment is at the lowest level since the early 1970s.  We can see that for ordinary people the Referendum has been excellent.

There can be little doubt that Remain voters were influenced by the lack of information available in June 2016.  The corporate media exploited the fact that most Remain voters were ill informed in 2016 by saying that it was the "clever" people who voted Remain.  Remainers then ganged up telling each other that they were clever despite the fact that most of the Fear that was used by the Government to persuade them to vote Remain didn't happen. They might read Reasons for Brexit to find out why they might have voted Leave.


The current Bank of England and Treasury reports on the various scenarios for Brexit are, again, spun to exaggerate fear.  However, the good news is that even these reports show that Brexit will be fine deal or no-deal.   The only people that Brexit may disadvantage are the Multinational Corporations of the Bilderberg Group.  This is why they are financing the "Peoples Vote" campaign.

The European Movement is an organisation with considerable experience of getting Second Referendums.  Firstly they throw muck over the major opposition supporters, accusing them of every type of financial irregularity and indecency, then they say over and over that voters had too little information, then they get the EU to offer a few crumbs of concessions.  Partnered with Bilderberg they are able to control the advertising budgets of commercial media and also able to restrict and threaten to restrict political funding to opposition parties.

See Funding of the StrongerIn Campaign which describes the Bilderberg involvement.  It is a testament to the fortitude of the British that they have resisted the pernicious European Movement and its Multinational financiers. Just look at the names on this list of attendees for the secret meeting where Bilderberg set up StrongerIn (also notice that the BBC was in attendance!):
