Northern Irish public will never be fooled by pro-EU lies

By David McNarry

In just a few weeks' time, Ukip leader Nigel Farage will be in Belfast debating the party's "Leave the EU" message.

Timely, too, when it is so wonderful to hear yesterday's fence-sitters now waxing lyrical to the Ukip tune that our great nation looks fair set to exit the European Union.

As for that sad gathering of "Yes, sir, three bags full, sir" bunch of wets - shame on them for touting around their perverse, twisted logic, which verges on cheating, as they flounder in the wake of the Brexit advances.

Without any costed facts or substantive evidence supporting their wild assertions and scaremongering, the Europhiles are in denial and still grossly misleading the people.

If the EU is so brilliant, then why is the Prime Minister, David Cameron, renegotiating terms with Brussels?

And, when he fails, where does he go?

Are our parties supporting Cameron's negotiating skills to stay in the EU?

Two things have recently caught my attention. Unsurprisingly, the Scottish National Party - in typical petulant style - threatening to hold a snap "Exit-the-UK" poll when the "Exit-the-EU" vote is confirmed.

Then - astonishingly - the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, weeping at the thought of the United Kingdom leaving the EU. This from a man standing in London making platitudes to his neighbours over Europe who will in a short time be heard battering to bits us Brits in his eulogy over the 1916 Rebellion.

The Union is safe and will be stronger when the UK exits the EU.

It pains me to say this, but I do believe that the astute Northern Irish people are more tuned into and excited about Brexit than they feel over the May Assembly election.

Methinks my people are ahead of the game - as usual.
