    It's important to note that Major was incompetent when he was in office. He was generally known as “the grey man”. His main aim was to kow-tow to the EU and avoid “rocking any boats”. Notably, he once said that leaving the EU's Exchange Rate Mechanism would be a “major” mistake for Britain. A few days later, Britain left the ERM. The economy immediately experienced an upturn as people realised that Britain would no longer be tied to yet another failed european “policy”.

    A failed ex PM supports a failed EU.

    Dyson increased sales by 40% in the last year. A lot of those goods went to Asia. Sales into the EU increased by 21% even though Dyson had to pay WTO tarrifs because the products were manufactured in Asia. Meanwhile Dyson employs 4500 Engineers and Scientists here in the UK. Dyson is a blueprint to revive technology based business in the UK. £3.5 billion pa sales.

    The remainers forecast a massive UK recession and huge unemployment, they were wrong and they are wrong about remaining in the EU, its a deeply corrupt Franco German plot which idiots like Major support. His Dad was a clown too.

    What a shock that Brexiters don't want a free vote in parliament, or another referendum. Democracy is only good if it gives the results YOU want.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
