Would the British Government Treasonously Ask Foreign Governments To Promote False Scares?
However the most disgraceful bit appears to be being admitted in this, not so much the government statement as the explanation for how it came about, from the Japanese embassy:
The UK, as a champion of free trade, is a reliable partner for Japan. More than 1,300 Japanese companies have invested in the UK, as part of the single market of the EU, and have created 130,000 jobs, more than anywhere else in Europe. This fact demonstrates that the advantage of the UK as a gateway to the European market has attracted Japanese investment.In a statement to the Sunday Times the Japanese embassy in London explained the intervention, saying: "We know some countries decided not to submit comments but as a non-EU nation and major investor in the UK we thought it was appropriate".
So they, and a large number of other countries were specifically asked to submit comments telling the British people what to do. Who asked them. It could only be the British Foreign Office.
Dear Foreign Office,
I note that the Japanese embassy, on releasing a statement telling the British people we should stay in the EU, stated that a large number of countries had been asked to submit comments on these lines, a number of whom had refused, presumably because they thought it wrong to try and scare the British people into remaining in the recession zone as the rest of the world grows at 6%.
Clearly the only organisation in Britain with the authority to ask all these diplomats to so undermine Britain is the Foreign Office.
I would therefore like to know, under the Freedom of information Act exactly which civil servants and indeed ministers were involved in asking foreign governments to submit such comments, which governments were asked, how many did, how many refused and how many submitted comments that were not sufficiently fear inducing to be used.
