European Union might lose United Kingdom. David Cameron might lose his job. Britain’s biggest selling newspaper – The Sun – has openly backed Brexit (Britain Exit). With days to go (June 23) before Britons voting to either remain or leave EU, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch’s flagship newspaper has run a headline – “BeLEAVE in Britain” (with the LEAVE decorated in British flag).


With circulation of close to 2-million copies a day, the latest push from The Sun is seen as an endorsement from the 85-year-old Australian media mogul in swinging British into leaving EU, once and for all. However, The Sun’s associate and political editor for more than 20 years, Trevor Kavanagh, denies it was Rupert Murdoch’s decision.

Murdoch is reported to be aggressively anti-EU. In February, when Murdoch was asked as to why he did not support the EU, he said – “That’s easy. When I go into Downing Street they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice.” But why should Murdoch’s support for Brexit send shivers down EU and Cameron’s spine?


That’s because Mr. Murdoch has a long history of successfully campaigning for political positions among his British readers. Rupert Murdoch does not typically back the loser. It famously printed – “It’s The Sun Wot Won It” – after the Tories unexpectedly won the 1992 General Election with the paper’s backing. That was when Margaret Thatcher and Conservative Party were reinstated.

Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch

Murdoch’s media empire includes News Corp and 21st Century Fox, two of the largest media conglomerates in the world. In the U.S. he created right-wing TV channel Fox News while in UK, he owns The SunThe Times and The Sunday Times, not to mention owning more than one hundred newspapers across Australia.


He also has a share in UK news wire the Press Association, along with The Wall Street Journal and National Geographic. Still, the billion-dollar question is, can Murdoch’s latest stunt powerful enough to bring down European Union and ends Britain’s 43-year-old relationship with EU? Below was the message splashed on The Sun:

Britain The Sun Newspaper - BeLEAVE in Britain - Cover


We are about to make the biggest ­political decision of our lives. The Sun urges everyone to vote LEAVE.


We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.


Throughout our 43-year membership of the European Union it has proved increasingly greedy, wasteful, bullying and breathtakingly incompetent in a crisis. Next Thursday, at the ballot box, we can correct this huge and ­historic mistake. It is our last chance. Because, be in no doubt, our future looks far bleaker if we stay in.

Brexit - UK Britanic Ship Leaving EU

Outside the EU we can become richer, safer and free at long last to forge our own destiny – as America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other great democracies already do. And as we were the first to do centuries ago. If we stay, Britain will be engulfed in a few short years by this relentlessly expanding ­German dominated federal state.


For all David Cameron’s witless assurances, our powers and values WILL be further eroded. Staying in will be worse for immigration, worse for jobs, worse for wages and worse for our way of life.


Greece is bankrupt.

Italy is in danger of going the same way, with even more disastrous consequences.

In Spain, 45 per cent of those under 25 are out of work.

And numerous even poorer and worse-governed countries are now joining the EU.

To remain means being powerless to cut mass immigration which keeps wages low and puts catastrophic pressure on our schools, hospitals, roads and housing stock. In every way, it is a bigger risk. The Remain campaign, made up of the corporate establishment, arrogant europhiles and foreign banks, have set out to terrify us all about life outside the EU.


Their “Project Fear” strategy predicts mass unemployment, soaring interest rates and inflation, plummeting house prices, even world war. The Treasury, Bank of England, the IMF and world leaders have all been wheeled out by Downing Street to add their grim warnings.


Nonsense! Years ago the same politicians and economists issued apocalyptic predictions about our fate if we didn’t join the euro. Thank God we stopped that. The single currency’s stranglehold has since ruined the EU’s poorer nations and cast millions on the dole. We are told we cannot be in the single market without accepting all the rules, free movement of people included.

Wave of Syrian Refugees

If so, let’s leave it and, using our enormous clout as the world’s fifth biggest economy, strike great trade deals with the other 85 per cent of the world. And pick and choose the best migrants from the whole world. If we stay in the EU, as Cameron wants, we will finally give up any chance of controlling our population. Cameron admits it.


Vote Leave, and we will reassert our sovereignty – embracing a future as a self-governing, powerful nation envied by all. We will re-establish the basic principle that we are governed by politicians we elect or eject every five years, not foreign bureaucrats. The Sun has campaigned relentlessly against the ever-expanding superstate.


But the EU cannot reform.


Remain has conducted a deceitful campaign. It has been nasty, cynical, personally abusive and beneath the dignity of Britain. Our country has a glorious history. This is our chance to make Britain even greater, to recapture our democracy, to preserve the values and culture we are rightly proud of.
