Paul’s Stuff

This was a deliberate and cynical ploy by David Cameron, the Conservative government and our MP’s to pretended to have given us the choice, but with a disguised escape clause in case we didn’t give them the result they wanted.

The public believed that the UK would leave the EU with no further ado if there was a leave vote.

Jeremy Corbyn though so…


Cameron had said so (said in parliament, published Feb 2016)…

But what had actually been passed in parliament said nothing about this, the bill just covered the mechanics of running and counting the referendum…

Moreover, the briefing notes (issued to MP’s ahead of debates because bills are usually too complicated and legalese for simple MPs to read and digest themselves) specifically said that the referendum was not binding, implied no time scale and contrasted this with the AV referendum in the previous parliament (also overseen by David Cameron) that would have changed the voting system with no further enabling legislation.


MP’s Briefing Notes on EU Referendum Bill (pdf)


David Cameron oversaw this referendum and the AV referendum, he must have well known what he was doing by making this different to the previous one. Given the rapid repudiation of the result by certain MP’s is seems certain that MP’s were clearly and specifically briefed about this before the vote…

This was a deliberate and cynical ploy by David Cameron, the Conservative government and our MP’s to pretended to have given us the choice, but with a disguised escape clause in case we didn’t give them the result they wanted. It seems quite probably that the case brought against the government in court was prepared ahead of time by agents of David Cameron (as PM) and given to them to present to court.

70th Weekly Show!

The end of the scheduled friday show, but not of the platform.

Do listen to the latest show – we have a great line up, including an item from Vernon Coleman, prolific author, medical doctor, and libertarian.

We have been putting out a show (almost) every week for quite a long time now. When it started there were three aims:

1) To plant the seed of an alternative station to BBC Radio 4 – which, like most domestic BBC output, is now little more than a platform for the BBC to promote its anti British ‘progressive’ agenda.

2) To develop a platform that could be made available for others to create alternative media stations that could not be taken down or controlled by the state.

3) Encourage individuals to create their own podcasts, so audiences could bypass the controlling bias of the mainstream media and the state.

To some extent we have succeeded in all three areas – we have run a regular show, we have a platform and we discovered new talent.

The RadioFreeUK Friday Show

At the start it was expected that we would rapidly gain support and audience – allowing us to grow through advertisng or subscription or dontation. Particularly with the number of complaints that are heard about existing media.

However, this has not proven to be the case – accross all platforms our subscribers are in the hundreds not the thousands needed to make this a self sustaining concern.

Many people have put in great effort, and I hope they feel their efforts were rewarded in what additional coverage we gained for their output.

Maybe a weekly show was a bridge too far, maybe we are too early into this field, or maybe audiences don’t really object to the MSM bias/agenda/control enough to actually do too much about it. But the scheduled weekly show appears to have run its course.

The Infrastructure and Platform

The platform is substantially automated now, and inexpensive to maintain (as it was always designed to be!) so will continue to be used – most likely for ad-hoc programmes, and as it has been developed with an aim of being open sourced and dark-net friendly it may have applications in more repressive regimes as RadioFree<where-ever>.

New Talent

It was always planned that we would not ‘own’ the podcasts we used – all content belongs to the creators and can continue to be created and distributed just as all other podcasts are – we are delighted for anyone we inspired.

We have been running a survey over a few weeks on how, now the dust is settling, people feel about the EU referendum.

And now we publish the results, which I think you’ll find very interesting (is it scientific? as if the experts ever get it right!)
