It’s people’s jobs, prices in the shops and the proper funding of public services

With astonishing mendacity Lord Mandelson froths about the Leave campaign, accusing them of every vice he can think of.

But in one passage the prince of cats is absolutely right.

"“The economy is not something that can be opted into or out of in this debate – it is the future of this country that is at stake. It’s people’s jobs, prices in the shops and the proper funding of public services that are on the ballot paper in June" he tells LabourList.

We can agree with him on that:


  • The EU has swamped the United Kingdom with cheapo migrants that have taken the jobs from British men and women by pricing them out of the Labour market.  
  • In 1974 the entry of the United Kingdom into the then EEC was accompanied by a stratospheric spike in food prices as we were forced to buy food from French farmers with expensive socially-constructed framing models rather than from Commonwealth producers where economies of scale are able to deliver very low cost and high quality food - food prices that are still available if we will only free ourselves from the EU.
  • The millions of eastern Europeans that have flooded into the country in the last 15 years have imposed an intolerable burden on public services, and effectively stolen the assets paid for by British taxpayers over the past five decades.
So thank you Lord Mandelson for drawing attention to these issues.
