UPDATE: The talkshop pledge is now up to £500 + a reserve, see comments.
Brexit: The Movie, is a new project set up by Martin Durkin, of ‘The great Global Warming Swindle’ fame. Martin is a top documentary maker, but none of the big TV channels are going to finance this one. Check out the trailer above and you’ll know why.
Climate sceptics have a lot of reasons to be eurosceptics too, given the nutty energy policy being dictated to the UK from Brussels thanks to their mad climate policies.
So once again, it’s time to dip into our pockets and help make things happen. Martin has a kickstarter page up and is soliciting for donations to finance the film. Or if you don’t want to hand over your bank details to Kickstarter, drop a donation onto the paypal link here at the talkshop and I’ll add it to the donation I’ve already made at Kickstarter. If we get the talkshop donation to £500 then a lucky winner and I get to go to the premiere and have the chance to put the talkshop point of view to the politicians and film producers there on everyone’s behalf. Also, there will be a prize draw for a pin badge, DVD and T-shirt for three lucky donors.
Thanks for your consideration, let’s make it happen!
From the Kickstarter page:
“This doc will turn apparently abstract issues (of politics and economics) into concrete reality (the price of stuff, the laws that directly affect us, how much trust we’re willing to place in politicians and bureaucrats). Too often the debate about the EU has a lofty and academic tone – the concern of political scientists and expert economists. This film will make it tangible.
“The decision we take in this referendum will shape our lives. What is at stake is our prosperity and freedom, and the ability to control our own destiny. This movie spells it out, in the most direct, hard-hitting way. The movie will be marked by the simplicity and clarity of its message, and by its emotional impact. The argument has an iron logic but it will be delivered with passion.
“Nor will the movie shy away from the arguments of those who support the EU. On the contrary, not only will we turn every pro-EU argument on its head and show the error and cynicism behind it, we will directly confront, and embarrass, the people we are arguing against.
“The movie will cut through the patronizing intellectualism of the noble, higher goals of ‘Project Europe’, to reveal the self-interestedness of the political-bureaucratic class which runs and benefits from the EU.”
