Dismal future if we stay in EU

I have seen the 'Britain Stronger in Europe' group leaflet listing all that they see as reasons to vote 'remain' at the referendum.

Of the 11 claims on the leaflet, not one is true or will be found possible to keep should we remain in the EU.

Ask yourself just one question about it. If all that they claim is true, then why would David Cameron have spent months over the winter trying to ‘reform Europe’? It was a task in which he failed to obtain a single, meaningful change.

Even the ‘in-siders’ agree that the EU needs ‘reform’ and ‘reduced red tape’ to be successful but none of this is possible from within; we have tried for over 40 years to get those changes our country needs and obtained not one.

If there was a word of fact in that leaflet, why would we need any changes to the way the EU works?

It was ‘blown out of the water’ by a damning new ‘leak’ from Whitehall over the weekend which shows that being unable to make our own trade deals (Treaty of Rome makes it impossible) is costing this country £2.5billion per year in lost trade with South America alone; how much is the EU ban on us doing our own trade costing us world wide? And that is just one example.

Outside, freed from the petty restrictions and squabbles which are so damaging to the UK, we could, and would, be surging ahead to wealth, prosperity and a bright future.

Inside we remain merely a star on someone else’s flag, a puppet of Brussels and heading for dismal future.

The choice is yours on June 23.
