Brexit Battle, Deal/No Deal, EU Army… Does It Matter To Catholics?

As the week ahead looks set to be exciting, politically, to put it mildly, the selection of opinions in the video clip below provide food for thought…

 Comment: 

As the Brexit Battle heats up, and the UK is becoming more divided by the nano-second, we learn that the long-standing desire of the EU to build its own army is now being pushed by the French President – click here to read more.   So, perhaps it’s time to reassess our thinking on the whole European project and the question of the moral, Catholic attitude to Brexit. 

Is there a “Catholic” attitude to Brexit, or is it acceptable for a Catholic to be a “remainer” or a “brexiteer” as individuals choose?  And what about those Catholic politicians who are being less than loyal to their leader. Are they right to be calling for a vote of confidence in Theresa May’s leadership, or should they humbly submit to her authority, in the Gospel spirit of  “Give unto Caesar”…  

Tell us what you think of the agreement/deal currently causing so much controversy – assuming you’ve read and understood all 585 pages that is… 😀

“Brussels Laid Bare” – Special Offer…

The following extracts are from a letter from St Edward’s Press Ltd received this morning, offering special rates for readers who order the book Brussels Laid Bare by end of November. The offer has come too late to include in our November newsletter, but bloggers may wish to take advantage of it…

From St Edward’s Press…

In view of the recent events in Westminster and Mrs May’s Chequers [proposal], we are running an autumn offer which may be of interest to you. 

It concerns Marta Andreasen’s Brussels Laid Bare – a book that tells the inside, and chilling, story of what happened to the EU’s chief accountant when she tried to expose a 200 million euros fraud in the EU’s accounts.  We are offering this book at £2 off its cover price (£10 instead of £12 by post – it’s been selling so well we’ve recently had to order an extra print run.)

If you place your order by the end of November, we’ll also send you our two popular booklets for free: 101 Reasons Why We Should Leave The EU (2018 edition) and also Brexit Choices, a layman’s guide to Brexit and what the various options mean, including a Canada style agreement with the EU, as is currently in the news.  

This offer is not available to the general public and so is not available on our website at this price.  So, if you would like to take advantage, please phone one of the following numbers and process credit card details that way: 

Telephone:  01793 762417 (this business if run from home and so this line is not always answered). An alternative number which is manned during office hours is 01752 334950 – they will take messages for us to return your call.

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Monumental Hypocrite or Very Confused Catholic? 

 

Comment:

Jacob Rees-Mogg MP,  widely lauded as a strict, traditional Catholic, fails to make the distinction between ‘judgmentalism’ and making necessary moral judgments… or maybe you agree with him?  Do we really need a lying, adulterous Prime Minister to take us through Brexit?  That’s how I’m reading JRM’s support for Boris – what about you? 

Broadcasting Media putting brakes on BREXIT: UK Likely to Remain Prisoner of the EU – Pray Urgently! 

Editor writes…

It’s now very clear today, with news of the latest Sky Data poll apparently showing a dramatic change in the public mood with more people changing their minds about leaving, and thinking we ought to stay in the EU, that my own personal prophesy, when the referendum was announced in 2016, is apparently coming true:  we will never be permitted to leave the EU.  The EU will see to it that we remain imprisoned in their diabolical project. Bit by bit, the media – especially the broadcasting media – have been building up their case for remaining; leading questions, ill-informed discussions, second-rate and manifestly biased commentators creating a picture of devastation outside the EU.  And, it must be said, the Leave side has been weak in its response – when, that is, they are permitted to respond.   So, what, if anything, can be done about it? 

Blogger, Westminster Fly, replies…

The EU is a spiritual problem – being freemasonic and satanic in origin, For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.”

So I think we’ve got to go all out about this – have Masses said, rosaries, novenas, and penance, that we may completely leave the EU and that it may be destroyed completely.

The battle won’t be won by clueless politicians like Theresa May, that’s for sure. Humanly speaking, I think our best bet is if they get rid of her, and Boris Johnson gets in and gets Jacob Rees Mogg in the cabinet, then we stand a chance. Both are far from perfect, but they are light years ahead of Theresa May.

Apparently, since May gave out her Chequers statement, UKIP membership has gone through the roof again. Farage is talking about coming back. God uses all these imperfect instruments, but I still think the best way for a clean break with the EU is an intensive Mass/prayer/penance campaign.

Also, it may be one of these things that isn’t resolved until the Consecration of Russia. But the signs are there. EU apparatchiks are getting worried about ‘right-wing populism’ (i.e. patriotism and common sense) resurfacing in various countries. Things are on the move… so the remedy must be spiritual.  

Comments invited – share your thoughts on this Sky Data Poll – is it contrived, or fake news?  Share, too, your suggestions about prayers and penances as we reflect on Westminster Fly’s contention that the BREXIT remedy must be spiritual.   

Stop Brexit? Shouldn’t Catholics WANT to leave the Godless EU?

From The Guardian

Thousands of pro-EU marchers have begun a walk from Pall Mall to parliament to demand a referendum on the terms of Brexit two years on from the vote.

The People’s Vote protest, running from Pall Mall to Parliament Square, has been organised by increasingly well-funded anti-Brexit groups based at Millbank Tower and led by Open Britain, the successor to the remain campaign.

A People’s Vote spokesperson said the two years since the referendum had been characterised by “arcane parliamentary manoeuvres about this amendment or that amendment” and it was time to take the issue “beyond Westminster and back to the people”.

[Conservative MP] Anna Soubry, will be among the speakers at the London march along with the Labour MP David Lammy and the Liberal Democrat leader, Sir Vince Cable, while the campaigner Gina Miller and the actor Sir Tony Robinson will also address those present from 2pm.

In his speech, Cable is expected to say that overwhelming ambition must be to stop Brexit. “Parliament is fiddling at the margins while the country slowly burns … Better to stop the damage. To return the issue to the people – to vote on the deal.”

The George Soros-backed group Best for Britain has been separately campaigning for a second referendum, focusing on newspaper and outdoor advertising, and local campaigning in parliamentary seats where they hope to persuade the sitting MP to support an amendment for another vote. It is encouraging supporters to attend the People’s Vote march.  Read the entire report here

We don’t DO party politics here, but Brexit crosses Party lines…surely Catholics should not be participating in marches aimed at overturning the 2016 Referendum? Shouldn’t all Catholics support the UK Government’s efforts to get us out of the Godless EU? 

Brexit & Brainwashed Catholics…

Maybe it’s just me, but I detect a determination both in Brussels and among certain groups of UK politicians to keep us in the EU at any price, despite the majority vote to leave  in the 2016 referendum.  There seems to be a propaganda push to hold a second referendum in the hope that there will be a change of mind and so the Remain vote will prevail.  I’m hearing of Catholics who say that they have changed position amidst so much talk of a threat to jobs, border with Ireland and so on.  The propaganda tactic might just work, with a second referendum giving a very different result. 

The question for us, then, is this: assuming that there is some “Catholic interest” in the matter, should Catholics be contacting MPs to strengthen the Brexit vote – or, in the event of a second referendum, are Catholics, like the ones I mention above, likely to vote in the opposite direction, the second time around?  Are Catholics so easily brainwashed? 

To remind ourselves of the reasons why a majority voted to leave in 2016, watch the video below, and then visit the links to our two previous discussions on this topic. 

Check out our previous discussions here (asking how Catholics should vote in the referendum) and here  (discussing the truth about the Scottish vote) before sharing your opinion with us. Should Catholics stand firm and fight to have the democratic wish of the peoples of the UK, carried out, as expressed in the referendum on 23 June, 2016? If so, why? Are there any specifically  “Catholic” reasons to support Brexit? 

And in the light of news reports today, where Prime Minister Theresa May repeats her belief that “no deal is better than a bad deal” – do you agree? In light of the intransigence of Brussels, I’m inclined to go with that. Take me to the cliff edge anytime (in a manner of speaking!) What about you?
