Britannia Rules the Skies
How the EU is in for a Bumpy Landing After Brexit
EU Trumpets 1 Billion Air Passengers, But the UK Is 25% Of This 1 billion
In December the EU released its latest figures for air travel. The UK is totally dominant.
UK’S DOMINANCE IN THE AIR
1 More air passengers than any other country
2 The most passengers traveling outside the EU
3 The most passengers traveling inside the EU
4 The busiest airport in the EU.
Every airport in the UK
WHY SHOW THIS?
1st Well despite what members of the Establishment wish us to think — the United Kingdom is a significant world power. FACT
2nd its to show readers how the EU continues to trumpet its ‘achievements’, whilst including the UK in its figures. Technically this is, of course, correct, as the UK continues to be a member of the EU. Nevertheless, the EU’s headlines will look much less impressive in just 84 days’ time. FACT
3rd is to cock my nose to the likes of Herr Juncker who said, “What I really regret in the context of Brexit is that there was no real Brexit campaign in terms of actual information in the United Kingdom.”
- Jean-Claude Juncker, unelected EU Commission President, 01 Oct 2018, Freiburg.
The problem is that he doesn’t like the facts, and neither does a large part of the British media. FACT
PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL SO THEY SAY. SO I AM HAPPY TO STAND BEHIND AND GIVE A SLIGHT PUSH
Here’s the EU’s headline from four weeks ago
Now Imagine the headline in a year’s time:-
“Record drop of ¼ billion in the number of air passengers carried
UK FLYING HIGH
In its latest report on air travel, the EU’s statistics agency has been forced to concede figures showing that the UK dominates almost every aspect of air travel in the EU.
Facts matter in my opinion.
Sadly they are seldom promoted on the BBC or on other broadcast outlets when they involve information which runs counter to the narrative that the UK is too small to succeed as an independent nation. Well, we are not and never have been. FACT
Some Remainer MPs will say that figures on aviation are irrelevant. Really? Imagine if the EU’s figures had shown that the UK was insignificant to the EU in terms of air travel? Imagine if the UK’s figures had shown a drop, rather than a year-on-year increase of 6%?
We all know the answer. The BBC would have been all over this story like a rash. FACT.
RELEVANCE TO BREXIT
Well it’s this
The UK is a great country. It’s high time we had a Government that acted like it believed that.
The story of the last two and a half years has been of a defeatist Prime Minister leading a defeatist Government advised by defeatist civil servants.
It’s time to prepare properly for a true, clean WTO Brexit on 29 March.
