brexit

C’est un nouveau coup de tonnerre qui a retenti outre-manche le 15 mai dans le cadre de la campagne référendaire pour ou contre la sortie du Royaume-Uni de l’Union européenne.

Alors que la campagne de terreur, lancée par les forces euro-atlantistes pour tenter de dissuader les électeurs de voter pour cette sortie de l’UE, ne cesse de s’amplifier, ce sont plus de 300 hommes et femmes d’affaires britanniques qui ont décidé de publier une tribune en faveur du Brexit, et cela dans le quotidien de qualité le plus lu du Royaume-Uni, le Daily Telegraph.

En agissant de la sorte, ces 300 dirigeants d’entreprises viennent de briser un tabou et une idée reçue, que la propagande européiste a mis dans les esprits, au Royaume-Uni comme en France. À savoir que ce seraient les classes populaires et les ignorants des affaires du monde qui seraient contre la prétendue « construction européenne », tandis que les actifs, les cadres, les entrepreneurs seraient en faveur de l’Union européenne.

Eh bien cette lettre ouverte – qui ressemble à un pavé dans la mare – prouve que ce n’est pas vrai.

Parmi ses signataires figurent notamment :
– le président de la chaîne de pubs Wetherspoon, Tim Martin,
– la directrice exécutive de la société de livraisons Action Express, Elaine Harries,
– l’ancien président du géant du tabac British American Tobacco, Patrick Sheehy,
– l’ancien vice-president Europe de Sony, Steve Dowdle,
– le fondateur de la chaîne de produits d’hygiène Superdrug, Peter Goldstein,
– et même (eh oui !), un des dirigeants de Goldman Sachs Royaume-Uni, David Sismey.

La plupart des autres signataires sont cependant des responsables de petites et moyennes entreprises.

En réalité, les seuls chefs d’entreprise qui manquent massivement parmi ces signataires sont les dirigeants des principales entreprises britanniques, cotées à l’indice FTSE-100 de la Bourse de Londres (équivalent de notre CAC-40). Ceux-là en revanche, soit se sont prononcés en faveur du maintien du Royaume-Uni dans l’UE, soit ont préféré rester neutres dans le débat.

On trouve ainsi la confirmation que les vrais partisans de la prétendue « construction européenne » se limitent en fait à un tout petit milieu : celui de l’oligarchie financière et industrielle euro-atlantiste, et des cercles dirigeants états-uniens et européistes.

Ces cercles sont très puissants par les moyens financiers, militaires et médiatiques dont ils disposent. Mais ils se heurtent de plus en plus la rébellion des sociétés des différents pays d’Europe, qui ont désormais pris conscience du projet liberticide et totalitaire de création des « États-Unis d’Euro-Amérique ».

Et qui ont décidé de le faire échouer.

Je publie ci-après cette Tribune signée par 306 dirigeants d’entreprises britanniques en faveur du Brexit, dans une traduction en français de mon cru, donc avec les réserves d’usage.

Il reste à espérer que les élites françaises – traditionnellement « toujours en retard d’une guerre » – vont bientôt comprendre que les Britanniques montrent la voie de l’avenir. Et en particulier que les dirigeants du monde des affaires en France vont finir par admettre que les analyses que l’UPR prodigue depuis plus de 9 ans sont les bonnes.

TRIBUNE PUBLIÉE DANS LE DAILY TELEGRAPH DU 15 MAI 2016

RÉFÉRENDUM SUR LA SORTIE DE L’UE : PLUS DE 300 DIRIGEANTS D’ENTREPRISES SOUTIENNENT LE BREXIT

La Grande-Bretagne est la cinquième plus grande économie du monde et, selon les projections actuelles, elle dépassera l’Allemagne pour devenir la locomotive de l’Europe. La Grande-Bretagne est le plus grand investisseur étranger aux États-Unis, et notre ouverture et notre dynamisme sont tels que nous attirons plus d’investissement étranger que tout autre pays européen.

Trois des 10 meilleures universités du monde sont britanniques, nous parlons la langue internationale des affaires, notre système juridique suscite la confiance du monde entier et nous avons une réputation inégalée pour l’innovation et la créativité.

Ce sont quelques-unes des raisons pour lesquelles nous pensons que la Grande-Bretagne est un pays de classe mondiale. Cependant, nous pensons également que la compétitivité de la Grande-Bretagne est minée par notre appartenance à une Union européenne défaillante.

Année après année, l’Union européenne achète moins auprès de la Grande-Bretagne parce que les économies des États membres stagnent et que des millions de personnes y sont au chômage. Selon Mervyn King, l’ancien gouverneur de la Banque d’Angleterre, l’euro « pourrait exploser ». La paperasserie bruxelloise étouffe chacune des 5 400 000 entreprises de Grande-Bretagne, même si seule une petite minorité d’entre elles fait du commerce avec l’UE.

Ce sont les affaires – et non le gouvernement – qui génèrent des revenus pour le Trésor public et des emplois pour nos collectivités. En dehors de l’UE, les entreprises britanniques seront libres de croître plus rapidement, de se développer sur de nouveaux marchés et de créer plus d’emplois. Il est temps de voter pour partir et de reprendre en main notre destinée.
