EU Referendum

With the Thursday summit just around the corner, what are the main points of the remain campaign?

Stronger economy
Stronger security
Stronger leadership

How will staying in Europe give us a stronger economy when we cannot set our own business rules, less than 5% of UK businesses trade directly with the EU, but have to adhere to all EU Directives, and how can it be beneficially prudent to hand over £50 million a week to 27 other countries when we have a deficit in home finances.

How will staying in Europe give us a stronger security when Europe's idea was Shegen, which appears to have collapsed and walls and barriers are being erected all over Europe today. One of the strongest tenets of remain was tested when the break up of Yugoslavia happened. It was EU interference that helped trigger a major civil war and its dithering contributed to deaths of some 100,000 people.

How will staying in Europe give us a stronger leadership when the leaders we have in Europe are mostly unelected. Westminster is directly elected by the people of Britain as shown in the general elections of the past. The UK also lies at heart of the Commonwealth of 53 nations. Far from increasing British influence in the world, the EU is undermining UK influence and that can only continue if we remain.

It appears to me that leaving will allow us to deregulate the EU’s costly mass of law, restore Britain’s special legal system, control our national borders, make stronger trade deals with other nations and improve the British economy and generate more jobs. Luckily we still have time to find more reasons to leave until the referendum is held.
