Merry Christmas

Better Off Out's Christmas message
Christmas Eve, 2012
Dear Member,

I just wanted to send an email to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
BOO 2012 Merry Christmas
This year we have moved the Better Off Out campaign forward and the notion that the UK should leave the EU is now a talking point not just in the papers but also in Parliament. I want to say thank you to everyone who has helped us in this endeavour. This includes a big thank you to all the distinguished speakers that we and The Freedom Association have had at our events this year, as well as all those who have supported us through their parliamentary activities.
I would also like to thank you, the members, for helping us drive forward the idea of how the UK would be better off free from EU membership. Through attending our events, writing to your respective Members of Parliament and donating to the campaign you have helped raise awareness and we could not operate in the way that we do without this support.
We will continue to campaign for an independent UK - free to make its own choices and enhance its global outlook - and hope that we can count on your continued support. 
For a final thought I'd like to recommend that you consider voting for Mark Reckless MP as the Taxpayers' Alliance's Pin-Up of the year. 
Mark did a sterling job in successfully tabling the amendment to the parliamentary motion which saw the House of Commons demand a cut in the UK's contribution to the EU's Budget. This idea was supported by the Better Off Out campaign and many of you wrote and phoned your respective Members of Parliament in support. Voting for this online poll closes today and you can cast you vote by going to the TPA's website:

Best wishes for Christmas and the new year.
Let's keep fighting the good fight for freedom.

Deputy Director
The Freedom Association

  1. The European Commission

    The European Commission has announced an agreement whereby
    English will be the official language of the EU, rather than
    German, which was the other contender. Her Majesty's Government
    conceded that English spelling had room for improvement and has
    therefore accepted a five-year phasing in of "Euro-English".
    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly,
    this will make sivil servants jump for joy. The hard "c" will be
    dropped in favour of the "k", Which should klear up some konfusion
    and allow one key less on keyboards.
    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when
    the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f", making words like
    "fotograf" 20% shorter.
    In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be
    expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are
    possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters
    which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil
    agre that the horible mes of the silent "e" is disgrasful.
    By the fourth yer, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as
    replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".
    During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords
    kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer
    kombinations of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli
    sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and
    everivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer. ZE DREM VIL FINALI
    COM TRU!
