Brexiters stole the name of a former British Army helicopter pilot to spread anti-EU fake news in preparation for a second referendum.
While Remainers haven’t even got off the starting blocks, a detailed list of anti-EU lies and fake news claiming what would happen if the UK remained in the EU is already being circulated widely by Leave campaigners in preparation for a second referendum.
The Leavers have even falsely used the name of a real former army helicopter pilot – Richard Knocker – as the author of a Facebook post to try to give it more credibility.
Mr Knocker denies being the author of the lies being circulated:
The lies on the list include fake news that if the UK remains in the EU it will be forced to join the Euro and the Schengen Area, that the House of Commons and the House of Lords will be made redundant and ALL national vetoes will be scrapped (click to enlarge):
The fake news post is being shared by people like Tommy Robinson and others, and is already starting to ‘leak’ onto the timelines of ordinary voters – many of whom may believe the lies.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that Remainers WORK TOGETHER to debunk these lies by sharing any debunking of this fake news.
Sharing WORKS. Facebook posts can reach a lot of people in a very short time. Leavers are EXPERTS at this. We must be too.
Facebook, Twitter, etc. promote posts with high activity, and that is how we will also be able to get our message out there.
So please share this piece. Thanks.🔷
p.s. Below is the full post of the fake news being widely shared. However, I would ask to be careful sharing any of this below WITHOUT any CLEAR debunking of the lies, otherwise it may just help to spread the anti-Remain smears further.
———— CAUTION. THE FOLLOWING IS FAKE NEWS —————
From: Richard Knocker (Ex-pilot in the Gulf wars)
OK so we’ve had the worst-case scenario for leaving the EU given to us by numerous outlets ranging from the Bank of England to the spoiled prepubescent acting momentum supporter and everyone in-between.
So, I am now going to tell you the worst-case scenario of remaining in the EU based on actual known factors and figures, sourced from the public records of the UK Government, the EU Parliament, The Bank of England, the CBI, Migration watch, The Stock exchanges around the world, the IMF, and the UN.
So those of you who think that this little rant is a tin foil hat moment by myself think again and go and fully research and cross reference what I am about to tell you and remember this is worst-case scenario that could happen unless I clearly point out where it will happen by either a date or other factor.
KNOWN OUTCOMES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN AGREED AS TRUE BY ALL SIDES:
1: The UK along with all existing members of the EU lose their abstention veto in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty when the system changes to that of majority acceptance with no abstentions or veto’s being allowed.
2: All member nations will become states of the new federal nation of the EU by 2022 as clearly laid out in the Lisbon treaty with no exceptions or veto’s.
3: All member states must adopt the Euro by 2022 and any new member state must do so within 2 years of joining the EU as laid down in the Lisbon treaty.
4: The London stock exchange will move to Frankfurt in 2020 and be integrated into the EU stock exchange resulting in a loss of 200,000 plus jobs in the UK because of the relocation. This has already been pre-agreed and is only on a holding pattern due to the Brexit negotiations, which if Brexit does happen the move is fully cancelled but if not and the UK remains a member it’s full steam ahead for the move.
5: The EU Parliament and ECJ become supreme over all legislative bodies of the UK.
6: The UK will adopt 100% of whatever the EU Parliament and ECJ lays down without any means of abstention or veto, negating the need for the UK to have the Lords or even the Commons as we know it today.
7: The UK will NOT be able to make its own trade deals.
8: The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade tariffs.
9 The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade quotas.
10: The UK loses control of its fishing rights.
11: The UK loses control of its oil and gas rights.
12: The UK loses control of its borders and enters the Schengen region by 2022 as clearly laid down in the Lisbon treaty.
13: The UK loses control of its planning legislation.
14: The UK loses control of its armed forces including its nuclear deterrent.
15: The UK loses full control of its taxation policy.
16: The UK loses the ability to create its own laws and to implement them.
17: The UK loses its standing in the Commonwealth.
18: The UK loses control of any provinces or affiliated nations e.g.; Falklands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar ect.
19: The UK loses control of its judicial system.
20: The UK loses control of its international policy.
21: The UK loses full control of its national policy.
22: The UK loses its right to call itself a nation in its own right.
23: The UK loses control of its space exploration program.
24: The UK loses control of its Aviation and Sea lane jurisdiction.
25: The UK loses its rebate in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon treaty.
26: The UK’s contribution to the EU is set to increase by an average of 1.2bn pa and by 2.3bn pa by 2020.
PROBABLE WORST-CASE OUTCOMES
1: The UK will become nothing more than a vassal protectorate state
2: With the continuation of freedom of movement, the population of the UK will continue to grow at a rate higher than pre-referendum level ranging between 400,000 to 675,000 per annum.
2.1; Which will result in not just wage suppression but even wage depression.
2.2; More than 500,000 new homes to be built annually (We are currently only managing 125,000)
2.3; House prices and rents will skyrocket annually by 23%.
2.4; Class sizes in schools would have to increase by 50% if not even double.
2.5; The NHS will become solely an emergency service of care provider as they would no longer be able to cope with the numbers of people needing care other than those of emergency.
2.6; GP’s will become triage centres.
2.7; Public transport will become permit holders use only.
2.8; Only those that did a serious crime namely murder will be given a custodial sentence.
2.9; The Court system becomes fully overrun to the point extreme cases only being heard and the rest being given an automatic fine.
2.10; Emergency services collapsing for not being able to cope with the scale of things.
2.11; Social care becoming solely private social care for those who can afford it.
2.12; Homelessness to increase by over 28% annually.
2.13; Unemployment to increase annually by 37%.
2.14; The Benefit system to collapse fully to the point of the return of soup kitchens and even workhouse existence.
2.15; Crime to increase by over 59% annually.
2.16; Shanty towns to become the norm standard of housing.
3: Because the UK would no longer be able to make its own trade deals, nor control its tariffs or quotas, Food prices would increase by over 25% and the cost of living would go up by over 39%.
4: Because the UK would lose its oil and gas rights it would also lose the revenue from taxation on them, resulting in a loss of over 600 billion per year in taxation revenue.
5: Because the UK will become a member state its percentage share of the vote on any new laws, regulations, treaties and everything else is at current member numbers 3.57% of the vote. That’s right folks the UK say in the EU if it was to remain a member is 3.57% total.
Everything I have put thus far is just the very extreme tip of the iceberg that is ready to sink the UK if we remain a member of the EU.
Everything is verifiable by the sources I have already outlined above and is something the EU propaganda machine as well as our very own government are not telling you.
Remainers keep on bleating about that the people didn’t know all of the facts.
If that’s the case then why are they failing to tell the people the downside or remaining a member of the EU.
ASK YOURSELVES THAT FACT AND FIND OUT THE TRUE HARD FACTS FOR YOURSELF.
