Stock markets rallying?
An interesting piece in The Guardian – a report claims stock markets are rallying as polls show the Remain campaign clawing back ground ahead of Thursday’s EU referendum vote.
As our leader Nigel Farage says though, Brexit would not be a major shock to the economy as European countries would be keen to strike a trade deal quickly.
So, let’s stay positive – let’s not fall victim to Project Fear! The scaremongering may increase over these final days but we must stand up for what we believe in and vote OUT on Thursday.
Polls swing back towards Remain
Following on from that it appears the polls are stating to swing back towards Remain – The Independent claims YouGov says it has detected a shift in opinion, with more undecided voters backing Remain.
Meanwhile, a Comres poll also showed that the number of people delighted if the UK votes to leave the EU fell from 45 per cent to 38 per cent and the number delighted if we stay rose from 27 per cent to 36 per cent.
The polls are close whichever way you look at, witht he ‘undecided’ able to swing the result either way – let’s not be complacent as every vote is crucial.
Migrants will swim to Britain from Calais
According to The Daily Express increasing numbers of migrants will try to swim or sail from Calais to Britain.
Lieutenant Pierre-Joachim Antona, spokesman for the maritime prefecture which covers Calais, was speaking after the port was closed on Saturday after they jumped into the sea as they tried to board ferries heading for Britain.
He said the migrants tried to get onboard car ferries bound for Dover, by bypassing security checks on the quayside.
All had to be plucked out of the sea by a rescue helicopter, supported by craft including customs and fishing boats.
This comes as ministers revealed the number of ‘clandestine entrants’ who made their way into Britain through Dover and other ports has risen from 1,432 in 2013 to 2,935 in 2015.
More UKIP smears
I was astonished to read in The Guardian a comment piece, So Britain, are you ready to enter the United Kingdom of UKIP?
This piece is a deliberate and scurrilous attempt to link UKIP with a group called Britain First – a far right group, apparently.
I can safely say that in all my years in politics, including the last four years with UKIP, I had never even heard of Britain First until the past few days. To link UKIP with these extreme groups is absolutely disgraceful.
