Dutch GeenPeilTV :On the Road to UK - to KILL the EU

 John Cleese backs Brexit and suggests the only way of reforming the EU is to KILL European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker 

John Cleese has declared he is voting for Britain to leave the EU and suggested killing European Commission President Jearn-Claude Juncker would be the best way of reforming the bloc.
The Fawlty Towers and Monty Python star made his views on the EU referendum clear in a series of tweets last night. 
He accused Mr Juncker of 'threatening' Britain and branded David Cameron's attempts at reform a failure as he plumped for an out vote on June 23. 
Cleese said Britain had been 'swimming against the tide' in its bid to bring about change in Brussels, where bureaucrats had taken away 'any trace of democratic accountability'.

The prominent Liberal Democrat supporter said it was a 'sad' situation and appeared to address his message to party grandee Lord [Paddy] Ashdown, who is campaigning for Remain.

'If I thought there was any chance of major reform in the EU, I'd vote to stay in. But there isn't. Sad. Sorry, Paddy,' he tweeted on Saturday.
Among the EU reforms suggested by the Monty Python star were 'give up the Euro, introduce accountability,and hang Jean-Claude Juncker'.

His pro-EU followers disagreed, with James Burns tweeting: '@JohnCleese Economically, we are better IN, according to the IMF, OECD, IFS, Bank of England, 90% of surveyed economies.'

 GeenPeilTV. On the Road to UK Democracy! 
Vanaf maandag drie dagen GeenPeil-anekdotes vertellen aan de lokale bevolking in Zuidoost-Brittanië, in het immer prettige gezelschap van Nigel Farage.Why aye man! GeenPeil goes United Kipdom. We hebben onze gouden GeenPeil-bus verherbestickerd en daarmee gaan we de komende dagen rondreizen in Engeland. 

Samen met Nigel Farage natuurlijk, want die kwam ons ook helpen in april.
Now it's our turn to return the favour. Off we go dus, voor een paar dagen fish, chips, lager & een goed gesprek met de locals in pittoreske plaatsjes als Ramsgate, Surrey, Basildon en Peterborough. Er schijnt ook nog een boottochtje in het schema te zitten, want Farage gaat met een armada van zestig vissersboten de Thames in Londen opstomen - richting Westminster. We nemen ons Michiel de Ruyter-kostuum dus ook maar mee.
Gaan we de Britten vertellen dat ze vóór Brexit moeten stemmen? Neen. Daar gaan wij niet over, dat is aan de Britten zelf om te beslissen. Wat we wel gaan doen, is ons verhaal vertellen. Over hoe we graag meer democratische inspraak willen in de (twijfelachtige) koers en (dubieuze) uitbreidingsdrang van de Europese Unie.
 Daarvoor hebben we een stapel flyers (pdf) laten drukken met een te gekke Cortoon op de voorkant en de (on)democratische anekdote van ons nationale referendum op de achterkant (tekst in de lees verder). Ook te vinden op GeenPeil.nl/Brexit. Hou verder @GeenPeil en de GeenPeil Facebookpagina in de gaten voor updates, en de GS frontpage voor dagelijkse topics & video's. Vandaag maken we de overtocht, maandag start de driedaagse karavaan in Ramsgate. GeenPeil: On the Road to Democracy!
  Dear Brits,
Allow us a minute of your time to tell you an anecdote about democracy in the European Union.
Last April, the Netherlands held a national referendum on the EU Association Treaty with Ukraine. We, the organisers, wanted to have a more direct say in European Union developments, because we are worried about the ongoing and highly undemocratic expansionism of the EU. No government in Europe should be allowed to make far-reaching decisions without a majority consent.
So we set out to do something about it, and thanks to a successful Internet campaign and nearly half a million signatures, we forced our government to hold a referendum.

On April 6, a convincing 61 percent of the Dutch voters said "No" to the undesirable Association Treaty. So was that the end of that? Was democracy saved from the talons of the EU technocrats?
Unfortunately, no. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, forced by his betters in Brussels, decided to completely ignore the outcome of the referendum. The Dutch voter was shunned by their national leaders, and, once again, democratic voices were muffled by the unelected officials of the European Union. 

As the organizers of the Dutch referendum, we are not here to meddle in your national business. Dear Lord no -- We're not Brussels. But we do feel a need to tell you our story. Because democracy matters. And in the European Union - the people's voices are silenced and shunned.
Read and share our story. Decide for yourself how highly you value the sovereignty of your national democracy. And cast your vote accordingly on June 23rd.
With love,
Your democratic friends from the Netherlands

 We have there joy in en de groetjes uit Ramsgate.
