He wants your corporate loyalty 24/7, your savings, your pension, your citizen benefits, your home, your car, the clothes off your back, and your soul


“I had a recent brain scan – am waiting for another, medics are querying – re a rare degenerative brain disease. I am 61 worked all my life paid full stamp like many other ladies who are hardworking honest members of society. I have done voluntary work and during my working career help to nurse terminally ill patients in a Hospice environment.

Receiving my pension at 60 instead 66 would have taken the financial strain away – feel I have to keep my stress levels now under control, trying my best.”

Sally, Cheddar Gorge


“I inherited my aunt’s 100m2 retiree corner flat but I can’t possibly afford to live in it, since the inheritance tax is fixed by Troika at €72,000 – payable in 12 monthly doses of 6,000. So I have to sell by Feb 1st – if I can. If I can’t sell I lose it, and the Troika grabs it. It’s terrifying…with €80 to get through the month I am struggling to keep the electricity going at least to show buyers.”

While obscenities like this take place, calm debates are had about six figure bonuses at failing and already bailed-out banks, multi-billion dollar global businesses pay net tax rates of 3.2%, eurocrats retire on €360,000 pensions, and the Labour Party works hard to overturn an overwhelming vote in favour of the existing leader…using the medium of Owen Smith – a pro-austerity chancer who wants to negate the accusatory votes of Labour heartland Brexiteers, and was a Blairite about the Iraq War.

The European establishments have failed us. The British political Party establishments are now ironically  whoring with each other to stop us escaping from this failure.
