On Twitter, Facebook and the blogs there has been a mass of speculation today that Gordon Brown will call the 2010 election sometime over the weekend.
People have been weighing up the odds, looking at the logistics, where will Brown be, where will the Queen be, how many senior politicians can be contacted to confirm/deny and most importantly, will Brown bottle it again.
Whilst I would welcome an early election, the subject that most British voters want answered, who will give me a referendum on the EU, is being ignored by all the major parties. Have they all been told not to rock the boat?
It would appear so, even the rigged Power2010 campaign has steadfastly refused to entertain any inclusion of an EU referendum in its list of carefully prepared voting options. The ‘progressives’ want to steer you all in a particular direction, and leaving the EU is not part of the plan.
So if you want your say, get over to The Albion Alliance website now, look up your candidates and get writing. Insist that they pledge to grant you a vote on the EU, and insist that they do this BEFORE they are elected, so they cannot back out of it when they get to Westminster.
As each day passes, the EU is consolidating its power. It has already excluded national Foreign Ministers from the EU meetings and taken control of foreign affairs, likewise its moves to centralised economic government has taken a leap forward by taking control of Greek economic affairs. All this despite the assurances from Cameron to fight any further transfers of power to the EU, yet over which he has remained remarkably silent.
With the situation in the South Atlantic over the mineral and oil rights off the coast of the Falkland Islands already escalating diplomatically with Argentina, we can only speculate as to what remaining sovereignty or military independence Brown would be prepared to give away to the EU to secure even the most meagre of logistical assistance should the situation look like becoming a conflict zone again, knowing full well that his past and present military policies mean we could no longer take it on alone.
If I was cynical enough, I might even go so far as suggesting that Brown would welcome an overseas adventure of this kind, if only to allow him to invoke the Civil Contingencies Act and delay the election indefinitely.
So lets start working together, lets work for a strong independent Britain that can take care of herself, and those who depend on us. The Albion Alliance is a way to tie candidates down before they are elected, to have your say on the EU, so please use it.
And lets make the election motto a very simple one: No Pledge, No Vote
