What should we do about the steel industry
Whatever the final result of the crisis over the British steel industry it has clearly demonstrated that this country’s future is in dire peril. In order to preserve their personal positions on the EU gravy train our political class is prepared to bend the knee to the dictators of Brussels and allow them to prevent us taking whatever measures are necessary to save this strategic industry. While the Labour and LIberal Democrat parties, because of their insane lust to remain supplicant members of the European Union, and because of their inbuilt pacifism, are quite prepared to see our defences undermined it is doubly sickening to see that the Conservatives, the party which always claims to represent patriotism, allowing short term, financial considerations take precedence over the vital needs of the country.
Without an indigenous steel industry we will be totally reliant on foreign countries for the means to manufacture the heavy military equipment needed in the event of war. Should such an eventuality arise the sources of steel would dry up and we could not make the ships, planes or tanks needed to survive. The spivs of the Tory party would be reduced to throwing financial instruments and other such meaningless rubbish at an invading army and the utter betrayal of the British people would be complete.
Whatever it costs we must save the steel industry if we are to survive in a violent world.
A list of questions about the EU Referendum, and what would happen when Britain leaves the EU. Every effort has been made to make the answers as accurate and as factually correct as possible.

1. Would leaving the European Union (‘EU’) endanger jobs and trade, and could the EU put up trade barriers against the UK?
When we leave the EU, it cannot put up arbitrary trade barriers against the UK, since to do so would be in breach of World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules which govern world trade. All EU countries have agreed to follow them. And even if they could do so in breach of WTO rules, why would they want to? We have a massive trade deficit with the EU – they sell us far more than we sell them. Britain currently exports goods and services to the EU to the value of £228.9 billion, whereas their exports to us amount to £290.6 billion: therefore we have a trade deficit with the EU of £61.7 billion. Germany, Spain, France, Italy, etc.will still want to sell us their cars, wine, holidays, etc. Trade will continue as normal. Britain’s is the fifth largest economy in the world. We are a world-class trading nation; while we have a trade deficit with the EU, we have a trade surplus with the rest of the world. Our trading success stems from hundreds of years of experience, from English being the international language of business and science and from the trust that foreign companies put in the English legal system and contract law.
