ARE YOU STILL UNDECIDED?
In or out? Here are ten reasons for not remaining in the EU
1 We will pay at least £50 million a day to keep up the unelected European Commission and the parliaments in Brussels and Strasbourg if we remain in the EU
2 Our MPs will have even less power to make laws as 75% of laws are already made by the European parliament.
3 Decisions on who can enter the UK will be made by the EU not the UK – priority will continue to be given to unemployed people from EU countries (soon to include Turkey, according to Germany’s Angela Merkel ) over skilled people (and relatives) from Commonwealth countries such as India , Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Australia.
4 If we remain we can’t negotiate our own trade deals with major world countries such as USA China India and Japan unlike independent countries such as Canada and Switzerland.
5 If we remain, former (failed) politicians such as Lord Mandelson and Neil Kinnock will continue to collect fat salaries for sitting as ((unelected) commissioners in Brussels – on the ‘gravy train’!
6 We will no longer be able to control our legal justice system if we remain – our traditional court structures will change.
7 The Transatlantic trade agreement (TTIP) the EU is secretly negotiating with the USA means that if we remain, large USA pharmaceutical companies will have preferred status in bidding for NHS equipment contracts at vastly increased costs and our courts will have no jurisdiction over them.
8 Our children and grandchildren might well be enlisted to join the planned European army.
9 We joined the original EEC (European Economic Community) in 1975 under false pretences. Edward Heath, then prime minister, told us we were not signing up to political union. Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher warned us not to become part of a European state.
10 There is a ‘secret agenda’ by those who hold power in the EU to increase their hold and further marginalise the democratic decisions of individual voters – divide and conquer!!
Maybe someone could write in to state ten valid reasons for remaining in the EU?
