EU REFERENDUM -“Leave” or forget democracy

“Within a decade it [the European Union] will have morphed into a gigantic eurozone political union made up of perhaps 25 countries – and four much smaller non-euro members. The eurozone political union will set the rules and the rest of us will have to agree” Andrew Lilico, Senior Economics Correspondent, Daily Telegraph.

The  EU referendum date has now been set for the 23rd of June and the people of the United Kingdom will be asked this question: “Should the United Kingdom REMAIN a member of the European Union or LEAVE the European Union?”

In the forthcoming months the UK electorate will be bombarded with irrelevant scaremongering by the Prime Minister’s supporters and the European Union leadership (of which there’s many presidents, commissioners, MEPs and an army of very well paid support staff – none of whom want to lose the massive income stream from the UK). There will also be a huge amount of groundless  negative propaganda from misguided multinationals – especially companies that have lucrative business links with EU member governments and the European Commission. This will be pretty much the same crew that insisted  we should jettison sterling and adopt the euro in order to survive.

The campaign has just started – the prophesies on the impact of the UK leaving will be dire from the “remain” camp but the British tradition of tolerance and fair play has been pushed to the limit and as the fifth largest economy in the world it’s time for us to exit and to let the United States of Europe proceed towards its stated goal of non-elected government from Brussels. The United Kingdom moving forward as an independent democracy and global trader has to be a vote and referendum winner.
