Labour Party and Bank of England opposed to Brexit, but others have a different view



Jeremy Corbyn of the Labour Party in the UK came out opposed to the United Kingdom leaving the European Union:

April 14, 2016

LONDON—The leader of the U.K.’s main opposition Jeremy Corbyn said the Labour Party is overwhelmingly in favor of Britain’s membership of the European Union despite the bloc’s “shortcomings,” in his first major speech of the party’s campaign ahead of a June referendum.

Mr. Corbyn, who has been critical of the EU in the past, has faced mounting pressure from some lawmakers within his center-left party to play a role in the campaign. U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, who is spearheading the pro-EU push, has been actively campaigning for months focusing primarily on the economic case for staying in the bloc.

The intervention from the Labour leader comes after some difficult weeks for the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, with events such as the terror attacks in Brussels, a crisis in Britain’s steel industry, and focus on Prime Minister David Cameron’s links to offshore funds dominating the agenda.

In a speech at a London university campus, the Labour leader said the party supported remaining in the EU because it provided protections for rights for workers and consumers as well as environmental standards.

Continued membership was important to provide the collective strength to counterbalance the power of multinationals, Mr. Corbyn said, addressing an audience of students and party activists.

Leaving the EU might lead to a “bonfire of rights,” he said.

Mr. Corbyn said he still remained critical of the EU, including its lack of democratic accountability and institutional pressures to deregulate or privatize public services, so it needed to change.

The Bank of England also made its views known:

Bank of England warns Brexit could do serious harm to UK economy

April 14, 2016

A vote to leave the EU could harm economic growth and have a serious impact on the pound and other UK assets, the Bank of England has said, as it took steps to prepare for June’s referendum.

Minutes to the Bank’s latest policy meeting showed its nine-strong monetary policy committee voted unanimously to leave interest rates at their historic low of 0.5%. The committee said uncertainty ahead of what was expected to be a close EU vote …

“A vote to leave could have significant implications for asset prices, in particular the exchange rate. The MPC would have to make careful judgements about the next effects of these potential influences on demand, supply and inflation. Ultimately, monetary policy would be set in order to meet the inflation target, while also ensuring that inflation expectations remained anchored.”

A Reuters poll this week found that 17 of 26 economists thought a vote for Brexit could prompt the Bank to cut interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis. …

The minutes follow a warning from the International Monetary Fund this week that a British vote to leave the EU risked doing damage to the whole region, spilling over into an already fragile global economy.

Although the Obama Administration wants the UK to remain in the EU, if the UK votes to leave the EU, it will probably increase its economic and military ties to the USA in some fashion.

We now are seeing a real battle in the UK. The campaign related to a possible Brexit (also called a Brixit) is on. Brexit is short for BRitish EXIT and Brixit is short for BRItish exIT from the European Union.

Vote Leave has been trying to make a liberal case for Brexit, with a focus on less regulation and freer trade. Grassroots Out and Mr Farage have instead put more emphasis on tougher immigration controls. Both groups recognise that concerns about immigration are the strongest source of support for Brexit. But Vote Leave is offering a more positive message and worries that relying on Mr Farage’s to argue for Brexit might put off centrist and undecided voters. Because Vote Leave seems more sensible than its rival, its official designation may marginally boost the chances of a Brexit vote.

The two groups will presumably now come together anyway. Mr Farage has already congratulated Vote Leave and promised to work with it, as have two Tory MPs who helped to establish Grassroots Out. But Mr Banks and some of his advisers are talking of a judicial challenge to the Electoral Commission’s decision. If they can get a challenge off the ground, which seems unlikely, they could even delay the date of the referendum by a few months.

In the fuss over which pro-Brexit group would be designated, less attention has been paid to the group selected to campaign to remain in the (EU). Britain Stronger in Europe, led by Lord (Stuart) Rose, the former boss of Marks & Spencer, has no rivals, is well financed and has the backing not just of leading pro-Europeans but also of most British businesses. Yet even its fans concede that, by focusing largely on the risks to jobs and the economy from Brexit, it is offering voters a less exciting vision than the Brexiteers are.

Earlier this year, David Cameron came back with a deal he negotiated with leaders of the EU. Most in the UK did not find that enough to convince them to want to stay in the EU (see Most in the UK not convinced it should remain in the EU).

So, David Cameron went back, and got a ‘better’ deal, granting the UK ‘special status’ within the EU (watch Will the UK’s ‘special status’ with the EU last?). He did this in the hopes that more in the UK would vote to remain in the EU.

Obviously, people like Nigel Farage are not convinced that this is a good deal. Because of pressures and promises, Prime Minister Cameron announced that the vote on staying or leaving the EU would take place on June 23, 2016.

We will see how the vote turns out. Yet ultimately, no matter how the vote goes, the UK WILL NOT BE AN EQUAL MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN UNION!

If the UK votes to leave the European Union, this will be because more voters apparently believe it will do better outside the European Union.

If the UK votes to remain in the European Union, this will be because more voters apparently believe it will do better inside the European Union.

If the UK votes to leave, then those in the European Union will feel that the UK has betrayed Europe, and will hold this against the UK.

But what if the UK votes to stay in?

Well, this will be problematic in many ways.

Both eastern and western European nations are opposed to this (watch Will the UK’s ‘special status’ with the EU last?) and it is already alienating the UK from Europe.

They also have indicated that London will cease its role of being the financial center of Europe, should the UK vote to leave the EU.

Relationships between the EU and UK will worsen.

David Cameron claims, “Britain will never be part of a European superstate.” But a superstate is what the elite in Europe want and is what they will get (cf. Revelation 17:12-13)–and the UK will be taken over by it.

Earlier this year, I recorded a message that we have made available online: Will the UK’s ‘special status’ with the EU last?
