Farage always wanted to be a chat show host and now he has achieved that ambition. Although he arranged to have me and many others kicked out of UKIP he did deliver us a referendum and for that he deserves our thanks. Nevertheless his and may others primary aim was to get us out of the EU and that has not been delivered indeed it seems as far away as ever if not receding.
You can listen to Farage and his callers by clicking below.
We are now being subjected to a softening up process centred round the so called transition arrangements which it is claimed is needed by business. It reminds me of when Prince Charles wanted to marry his divorced mistress and there was a long sophisticated campaign orchestrated by paid lobbyists to make Camilla acceptable to the great British public by changing not only the public's views but leaving the Queen in a position that she felt she had to hold her nose and accept Camilla.
We are now being salami sliced by the largely Europhile Tory party emasculating our vote to leave the EU. This goes on 24 hours a day on the BBC and print media and will inevitably win because of the sheer weight of biased publicity on the Remain side. Its what one would expect from a Tory Remain dominated Cabinet whose only objective is to preserve the Tory party in power and forgetting about the way the ordinary people voted in the Referendum.
The idea big business has your interests at heart is laughable. The care only about their profits. Profits are revenue minus costs and the easiest way to increase profits is to cut costs, As the biggest component of business costs are wages then its a no brainer that increasing labour supply through immigration is the easiest way to reduce labour costs and boost profits. Big business loves only itself. So the next time you hear Hammond talking about protecting business remember he is talking about protecting his own interests not yours.
The other even more sordid aspect is it unlimited immigration enables Hammond and his chums to have cheap domestic servants to keep them in the style to which they are accustomed.
The right way out is to have, as virtually every other country has, a labour visa system with visas being applied for by the employer who are responsible for ensuring their immigrant labour as CRB checks, health insurance etc. Its the employers who benefit from these immigrants so its only right they bear the costs including housing and schools. Saudi is often vilified in the UK press but if BAe wants to do business there they have to provide and pay for schooling, housing and medical care for those they bring into the country.
The Swiss have been running a very tight visa system since before the war. Switzerland with no natural resources has the highest standard of living in Europe. They have been doing it right, we are the country that has got it wrong.
