Referendum: How the Government rigged the Question-Without being Noticed!

 

eurofacts - March 11th 2005-03-21

Vol 10 No 11

 

 

 

The outcome of the referendum on the [New European] Constitution could depend on the readiness of eurosceptic politicians to admit they were wrong.

 

“We do accept the question”, Michael Howard, Reuters 26th February 2005.

 

“it certainly seems a fair question” Theresa May, Today programme 26th February 2005.

 

“The question seems straight forward” Michael Ancram, The Independent 27th February 2005.

 

“I think that sounds a very neutral, balanced question to me. It enables the argument to be enjoined fairly and squarely on both sides”, Charles Kennedy, The Independent, 27th February 2005.

 

“EU realists may justifiably breath a sigh of relief that the question to be asked in the 2006 referendum will be a fair one”, Jeffrey Titford MEP UKIP. Letter to The Times 27th February 2005.

 

The Leader of the UK, Independence Party today said that the referendum question on the EU Constitution was apparently benign, but masked the consequences of a ‘No’ vote. Roger Khapman MEP said that while the question was neutrally worded, it simply raised another question-what does a ‘No’ vote mean? UKIP Press Statement, 27th February, 2005.

“It must be acknowledged the question is neutral”, Daily Telegraph, 27th February 2005.

 

How can so many people who ought to have been on their guard have been so wrong? In articles in our two previous recent issues we suggested that the question chosen by the Government hands a huge advantage to the “Yes” campaign.

 

We explained why we believed this to be the case and pointed out that when the pollsters put it to voters the result was a tiny majority against the Constitution while the polls, which employed a genuinely neutral question, produced a majority against the Constitution of around two to one.

 

However, at the time we were not aware of a poll carried out by ICM on behalf of the ‘NO’ Campaign, whose findings (see below) demonstrate even more clearly how cleverly the question has been skewed to get the result the Government wants.

 

The poll shows that if the Government’s preferred wording was put to the electorate the responses would be evenly split between those for and against, while the neutrally worded question produces a massive majority against.

 

Q1. Should the United Kingdom approve the treaty establishing a constitution for the European Union?

 

Yes ----------------------- 39%

No ------------------------ 39%

Don’t know --------------- 22%

 

Q2. If there was a referendum tomorrow would you vote for Britain to sign up to the EU Constitution or not?

 

Vote to join------------------26%

Vote not to join--------------54%

Don’t know-------------------20%

 

Quite how the Government succeeded in both rigging the question while convincing others that it had done no such thing is now a little clearer.

 

On 20th January 2005 the Financial Times, perhaps the paper closest to the Blair government reported that the Government was likely to produce a question that was blatantly biased to the ‘Yes’ vote. Elsewhere in the Press, there was speculation that the question would contain a reference to the Constitution’s endorsement by Parliament-with the aim of influencing voters.

 

When on 25th January 2005, the Government published the European Union Bill containing the actual referendum question

 

-“Should the United Kingdom approve the Treaty establishing a Constitution for the European Union?”- there was an audible sign of relief. Perhaps-s this was because none of the cruder methods for rigging referendums had been used.

True, the use of the “yea-saying” phenomenon is quite explicit, and this should have been immediately apparent but otherwise those who drafted the question have been subtle.

 

Many eurosceptics consequently concluded that the question was fair, or at the least, that it was a lot better than might be expected from a Government well-versed in spin and media manipulation - and they expressed their satisfaction with it.

 

More apparently they did not notice that the title of the Treaty: -

 

“Treaty Establishing a Constitution for Europe “-

 

has been changed to:

 

 

“Treaty

Establishing a Constitution for the European Union”

 

Or indeed, that this formulation is a reflection of the Government’s strategy. After all, a constitution, which governs the European Union, has very different connotations from one, which controls the political life of Europe.

 

Meanwhile Mr Straw was busy on the Today programme assuring listeners that the Constitution was indeed a way of halting the runaway tendencies of European Federalism and that was its great virtue.

 

On 26th February the Daily Telegraph, which apparently did not notice the modification of the Treaty title, declared in an editorial:

 

“It must be acknowledged that the question is neutral.”

 

This may go some way to explain why the entire Tory Front bench has taken the same view. Extraordinary though it seems, no one on the Tory benches or the Conservative Research Department and no one in the leadership of UKIP seems to have examined the wording of the question with the intense scrutiny that it undoubtedly warrants.

 

[Well! with the Conservatives(?) there is no excuse - all they had to do was ask Kenneth Clarke and chums -I’m sure they were not in the dark over this jiggery -pockery by the Pro-EU constitution enthusiasts in all the Parties at Westminster-YES!- ALL -New Labour- Conservatives- but we reserve our opinion on the LibDems for now.

 

While mentioning the LibDems we must correct our previous observation that the LibDems were for a compromise on the suspension of our rights and liberties from Magna Carta. We now understand that they in fact fought to the end to save our liberties and did not consent to the traitorous compromise antics of the New Labour and the Conservatives (?) It is a great tragedy that the LibDems with their passion for ‘Liberty’ are not fighting for the ‘No’ campaign on the EU Constitution and for withdrawal. Many of their great statesmen of the past must wonder what had happened to TRUE Liberal Principles.]

 

To continue:

 

Five days later on 3rd March-the Electoral Commission gave the question their blessing - despite the fact that the wording breaches its own guidelines. (See our Bulletin Board for details.)

 

When the Electoral Commission was asked to justify its conduct by eurofacts and by others it either refused to reply or failed to keep its promise to do so at a later date.

 

[The Electoral Commission is a Public Body answerable to the General Public and more so than most because of their important status as a watchman to protect the integrity of Elections on behalf of the People.]

 

How, precisely the Government came up with the wording of the question remains something of a mystery. It seems inconceivable that a government that has put spin and the manipulation of opinion at the heart of its programme did not roadtest the referendum question as one of a number of possible questions.

 

We know it was not devised by the Electoral Commission and that the Government did not consult Opposition parties or the ‘No’ Campaign -despite the obvious need to build confidence in the referendum arrangements.

 

But we do not know what professional advice, focus group or polling techniques it employed. A series of questions put down by eurosceptic Labour MP Ian Davidson on these matters has produced a Government denial that it used polling data in formulating the wording.

 

In our last issue we suggested that the government’s referendum question is open to criticism on three grounds:

It exploits the ‘Yea-saying phenomenon’

 

It distorts the title of the treaty in order to create the impression that its purpose is to control EU institutions.

 

In the absence of an objective summary or the mailing of the Treaty Text to voters-it is unintelligible.

 

Neil O’Brien, campaign director of the ‘NO’ Campaign has suggested a further criticism, which should be taken seriously:

 

That the Government’s wording gives the impression that the Treaty is already in place.

 

Since the publication of the European Union Bill the Dutch Government has published the question it will ask in a referendum. Despite the europhile convictions of Dutch Ministers and the major Dutch political parties this is infinitely fairer than the question chosen by the British Government.

 

It reads:

 

“Are you for or against The Netherlands agreeing to the treaty to establish a constitution for Europe.”?

 

Many of the points made above were made in our two previous issues. We repeat them because it seems unlikely that the passage of the European Union Bill will have been completed before a General Election is called and that the Bill will therefore have to be reintroduced in the autumn.

 

It is devoutly to be hoped that by then those politicians who gave the question their blessing when they should have known better will emerge from their collective stupor and revisit the issue of the referendum question. Britain’s political future may depend on their readiness to admit they were wrong.

Elections in the British One Party State

If you vote Conservative, Labour, Lib-Dem, UKIP or the BNP, you'll be voting for the EU dictatorship. All five party leaderships are EU controlled. That's why your vote doesn't make a difference - all these five parties have the same policies: the EU's policies.

The 17 most senior politicians in the Conservative, Lib Dem and Labour parties, including Ken Clarke, Francis Maude, Cameron, William Hague, George Osborne, Nick Clegg, Brown, David and Ed Milliband, Ed Balls, Peter Mandleson are Bilderbergers, the 140 strong band of ultra senior Freemasons who are bribed by the EU to build the EU dictatorship.

No Bilderberger, Freemason or Common Purpose graduate should ever be allowed to hold public office.

UKIP and the BNP are honey traps to neutralise activists: UKIP is riddled with Freemasons and Common Purpose like a cancer, and the BNP controlled by the Edgar Griffin (father) and son Nick Freemasonry family. The 350,000 freemasons and the 40,000 strong Common Purpose Organisation are the (mostly unknowing) foot soldiers of the EU in Britain. (Which makes the BNP the easiest party to clean up - get rid of the Griffins, and put in a real anti-EU leadership.)

IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF

UKIP

 OR

 INTEND TO JOIN THEM TAKE NOTE OF THE MESSAGE ABOVE

 

 

THE EDP HAS BEEN CRITICAL OF THE MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP OF THE UKIP FOR SOME TIME NOW AS IS SHOWN IN A NUMBER OF BULLETINS  OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS WHERE WE HAVE CRITICISED THEIR LACK LUSTRE PERFORMANCE AS THEY FAILED TO MOTIVATE THEIR MEMBERSHIP TO A MORE DETERMINED CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE CAMPAIGN WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE THE GOVERNMENTS TREMBLE BUT THEY HAD NO WORRY BECAUSE THEY HAD THEIR OWN PERSONS IN CHARGE AT THE TOP OF THE ORGANISATION.  THIS FIGHTING SPIRIT HAS BEEN LACKING AND WE CAN CONFIRM THIS OURSELVES BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT WHEN A MARCH WAS CANCELLED - AND WATCH THE FARCE WHEN CANDLES WERE HELD AND THOUSANDS OF LETTERS SENT TO MPS WHO KNEW WHERE TO DISPOSES OF THEM -AND ALL TO NO AVAIL.  IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF UKIP YOU HAVE BEEN BETRAYED BY YOUR OWN LEADERSHIP SOME APPEAR ON THE ALEX JONES SHOW WHICH HAS BEEN UNDER CLOSE SPOTLIGHT RECENTLY AS BEING CLOSE TO AN ISRAELI SECURITY FIRM DETAILS ON OUR WEBSITE .    IRONICALLY IT WAS A CHANCE LOOK ON THE INTERNET A FEW YEARS AGO  TO COME UPON THAT SITE WHICH OPENED OUR MIND TO THE ILLUMINATI.   THOUGH WE HAVE SOME DETAILS OF THE BILDERBERGERS ON OUR SITE  A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO WE FAILED TO DO MORE RESEARCH- WE ALL HAVE TO LEARN.  THE FAILURE OF UKIP WE HAVE SUSPECTED  FOR MANY YEARS   THAT MANY AT THE TOP OF THEIR ORGANISATION MIGHT BE UNDERCOVER MEMBERS OF THE ILLUMINATI.  IT IS A FAVOURITE TRICK OF THEIRS TO SUPPORT ANY PARTY OR ORGANISATION AT THE OUTSET WHATEVER ITS POLICY AS IT ALLOWS THEM TO PUT THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN TO CONTROL ITS POLICES AS THEY BEHIND THE SCENES SUPPLY THE VITAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT.

  Our intention is not to benefit from this disaster as since the 1999 European Election we have NOT! accepted a DONATION! from ANYONE! and we closed membership also because we did not wish to split the vote for UKIP but have stated in the past that we would contest another election if it was ever necessary to enter into the affray again and with the reputation of UKIP under scrutiny we will keep our options OPEN!   As we mentioned some time ago we have been almost two decades on the campaign trail to free our once FREE INDEPENDENT NATION STATE of ENGLAND from the SATANIC EU and those who have for centuries have planned for an EVIL ONE-WORLD CORPORATION/GOVERNMENT and EXTERMINATE! at least 5 BILLION of the WORLD'S POPULATION and therefore if we are right about those mentioned above they are not only TRAITORS to their COUNTRY but also a THREAT to WORLD PEACE.   However, of late, matters have NOT! been going well for the ILLUMINATI as you will observe BELOW.

 

The Queen, Treason and the Coronation oath

Together with Churchill, King George VI saved our nation; he was a Monarch to be proud of. But his daughter the Queen is the only monarch to have broken all her coronation oaths, by signing these six treaties that abolish our common law, the British Constitution, the British and English nations, and our sovereignty. She has also committed treason, together with co-signatories Ted Heath, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Realising that under the five Treason Acts they should already be hanging by the neck until dead, Tony Blair and the Queen signed the Crime and Disorder Act, 1998, which secretly abolished much of the crime of treason (s36.3) and reduced the penalty to life imprisonment - they didn't tell the MP's what they had just voted for.

1.4 million British Servicemen gave their lives for our independence. The Queen has thrown their sacrifices away and made them worthless.

At no physical risk to herself, she could have fulfilled her oath and duty as a constitutional check and balance, by refusing to sign the six treaties until an in/out referendum had been held. In the unlikely event the vote went against her, she was even more unlikely to lose her crown (not her life or a limb), and would keep her 9 billion plus palaces either way. Those servicemen's lives would still have meant something.

But she was always keen to sign; and said in advance she would sign the last treaty. Princes Charles, William or Harry can now never be King. You can't have a King without a Kingdom: they can only be princes of a region (principality) within Europe.

King Edward 8th was forced to abdicate because he was too overt as a German Nazi supporter. Mrs Simpson's divorce was merely the excuse. The Royal Family is a German Family - real surname Saxe-Coburg Gotha. Windsor is an adopted surname. All four of Prince Phillip's sisters married high ranking German Nazis. After they lost the war the EU was switched from a Nazi basis to a communist basis.

Between the ages of 12 and 22 Queen Elisabeth's political and constitutional tutor was Sir Henry Martin, a Fabian Communist. It seems clear she was well trained for her subversion and treason.

Because she waves and smiles at us most are fooled into thinking she's lovely; in fact the Queen is a member of the Illuminati, a Bilderberger, head of Freemasonry, is wholly pro the (German) EU, and has abolished this nation with ruthless determination. It is so obvious she cares nothing for Britain or the British.

The Queen's aspirations are not ours; she clearly serves a much darker master; the faith she defends cannot be the one we think it is. King George VI, the one recent monarch not indoctrinated with Nazi or Communist philosophy, must be turning over in his grave.

I ask that the law be enforced, and the Queen be tried for treason before 12 honest people, and not by our corrupt judges. And that the illegal section 36.3 Crime and Disorder Act be declared null and void, so that she can hang by the neck till dead.

The new EU Hitler doesn't have to get elected
Its worth noting that Adolf Hitler first had to get elected, if on a 35% minority vote, and then get his Enabling Act passed. An EU dictator has no such problems. Our EU rulers do not submit themselves for election now. And the Queen has already signed the Enabling Act (Civil Contingencies Act 2004).

The EU's Hitler will have a much easier rise to power, and will have the formerly British and French nuclear weapons from day one. Adolf Hitler killed 54 million people. The EU's dictator could kill a billion at the touch of a button, with no democratic checks and balances to answer to. How could any aspiring dictator resist the EU opportunity?

 KNOWN GOOD GUYS UNDER SUSPICION OF BEING PROVOCATEURS ON BEHALF OF THE ILLUMINATI.

As we have explained elsewhere it is this typical situation which we must fear the most and expect this insidious practice of the satanic ILLUMINATI who wish to ensure where possible that it is THEIR STOOGE in CONTROL! within their ENEMIES camp.  We suspect that there are many more within UKIP [-possibly even MEP's-one talking about a deal with the Conservative party ] and  BNP and other declared advocates across the political spectrum pursuing  FREEDOM! and NATION STATE! who will soon share the space below.

There are always great difficulty in these matters and one can only go on the actions and contacts of the individuals involved.

There can be no greater or more heinous crime imaginable than for one to betray the TRUST of a COMRADE fighting for a JUST! and GOOD CAUSE!

'It is said: 'No man can justly censure or condemn another, because indeed no man truly knows another'

But what we are considering is at a time when those who intend to destroy the majority of mankind and make serfs of the majority allowed to live and  It is a WAR we are FIGHTING for SURVIVAL! and in such circumstances a persons ACTIONS or lack of ACTION! are the ONLY basis on which one can JUDGE! another.

Finally it is up to the membership of UKIP and BNP to purge THEIR PARTY of the TRAITORS within and look for those who have the fire in their belly to carry the party forward to VICTORY!
