But first, a little about Gerard:
Gerard Batten was a member of the Anti-Federalist League 1992-1993 and a founder member of the UK Independence Party in 1993. He was the Party’s European Election Organiser in 1994 and the first Party Secretary (1994-1997). He has served on the UKIP National Executive Committee at different times. He has fought eleven different election campaigns for the Party over the years.
He was elected as a Member of the European Parliament for London in 2004 and re-elected in 2009 for another five year term. [he was also elected again for the present term] He has written extensively on such subjects as Immigration, the Cost of the European Union, and the European Arrest Warranty and the creation of a European system of criminal law.
In his first term he was a member of the European Parliament’s Security & Defence Committee, and since 2009 he has been a member of the Civil Liberties Justice & Home Affairs Committee. From 2009 he has served as the UKIP MEP’s Chief Whip.
One of the pages in Gerard's website reads:
Referendum Victory! But how can Britain leave the European Union?
24th June 2016
The British people have delivered an historic victory by voting to leave the EU. It is now the duty of the Government and Parliament to implement that decision.
Politicians and commentators are citing Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty as the only means of leaving. This is not true!
The quickest and simplest way of leave the EU is to repeal the European Communities Act (1973). That would restore supremacy of law-making to Parliament. Parliament could then pass immediate measures to control borders and immigration.
However, all EU Directives have been transposed into Acts of Parliament, and these would remain in force. So chaos would not ensue. These Acts could then be repealed gradually over a period of time (as short as possible). We would be left with only the minimum of laws we need to interact with the EU (if it still exists).
I explain this in my book, The Road to Freedom. The arguments in this book are summarised in a short four-page pamphlet that can by read by clicking on this link. [This will take you directly to the PDF, save it and print it out, and distribute it as much as you can.]
Last but not least, if you hunger for more than the four page summary, you can buy the paperback for £7.99 or the Kindle version for £3.67 on this page on the Amazon UK website.
