Flashback: British Nationalists Considering Leaving European Union

(Tea Party 247) – Back in 2013, there was a lot of discussion as to whether or not the United Kingdom should remain a part of the European Union, the overwhelming answer, as we know now, was no, but when you look back to this period of time, you can clearly see the tides of British nationalism rising, creating a desire for the UK to be independent.

This movement left Bilderberg luminaries very upset as the idea of the United Kingdom bolting from the European Union meant the death of their dream to see a “United States of Europe.” At the time, even one of their own members, Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, supported the rebellion that was rising up.

Bilderberg is full of powerful people who truly have the means to make things happen. If you wanted to be a member of Bilderberg, you need to own a multinational bank, a multinational corporation, or a country. The first meeting of these so-called financial giants took place in 1954. Ever since then, the most important, powerful brokers, financial minds, and world leaders have attended the group’s meetings.

Here’s more on the rise of nationalism in Britain from a 2013 piece published by American Free Press:

British Prime Minister David Cameron (pictured above) promised to offer citizens an up-or-down vote on whether to leave the European Union (EU) if his party can return him to office in the next election, expected in 2015. He said on January 23, 2013, that public opposition to membership in the EU is “at an all-time high.”

Cameron said in a speech in London that his Conservative Party should renegotiate the terms of the UK’s membership in the 27-nation EU.

“Once that new settlement has been negotiated, we will give the British people” a chance to vote on whether to stay or quit the EU, he said. “A one size fits all” approach to the EU is misguided.

Britain has always had reservations about EU membership. It refuses to use the euro and maintains the pound as currency. When Lady Margaret Thatcher was prime minister, she told The Spotlight in a private conversation that she would never surrender national sovereignty to an international organization. Membership in the EU was like belonging to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, she said. Treaties can be used for the benefit of nations without yielding a “bit of national sovereignty,” she added. Britain kept the pound because a nation’s currency is “a symbol” of its sovereignty, she said.

Martin Schulz, president of the European Parliament, said Cameron was “playing a dangerous game” dictated by domestic politics.

“This was an inward-looking speech that does not reflect European reality and will not impress many of the EU’s European partners,” he said.

Laurent Fabius, Foreign Minister of France, compared the EU to joining a sports club—“you can’t say you want to play rugby,” he told a popularFrench radio station.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said countries should not be allowed to write their own terms for EU membership. “A policy of cherry-picking won’t function,” he said.

However, Italian leader Monti countered that the EU “does not need unwilling members.” But he “hopes” Brits will choose to remain in the bloc and “help shape its future.”

Years later, after Brexit, it’s clear to see that the decision to leave the EU was a long time coming. This was no sudden, overnight movement started as a result of seeing the rise in nationalism on American soil thanks to the election of Donald Trump as president.

The United Kingdom wanted to protect it’s nation by having borders once again instead of just letting in whoever wants to walk in the front door, something modern day liberals abhor with every fiber of their being. The UK experienced a number of terror attacks over the last few years that were carried out by radical Islamic terrorists who came into the country through the EU’s all but non-existent immigration laws.

I’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for the UK years down the road from now.
