Ten good reasons to vote to get out of the EU

  1. British Laws for British People. Those who make our laws should be those elected by the people they represent – and not unelected EU Commissioners and bureaucrats.
  2. The EU pushes up your fuel bills with the most expensive energy policy in the world, pushes up food bills with its Common Agricultural Policy, increases the cost of goods with rules restricting us from buying products from outside the EU, plus extra EU costs adds to your taxes.
  3. The EU membership fee alone costs the UK over £55 million per day. By leaving the EU we will save at least £9.7bn pa in net contributions.
  4. Australian-style ‘points based’ immigration system: firmer than EU open border uncontrolled mass EU immigration and fairer to Commonwealth and non-EU potential migrants.
  5. The UK is the biggest export market in the world for both Germany as well as the EU overall. We are their biggest customer – we can and will get a better deal outside the EU.
  6. The EU has 8% of the world’s population and is in economic decline. There is vast growth in parts of the other 92% and the UK’s best future is out of the EU and into the world.
  7. Britain is the fifth biggest economy in the world; has the biggest financial centre in the world and is one of the world’s most globalised economies. We can flourish as an independent nation, trading with our allies in Europe and also with the Commonwealth as well as the rest of the world.
  8. The EU has destroyed the right of national governments to levy taxes where income is earned. Large corporations with vast operations making billions of pounds in the UK can pay little or no tax by electing to move their tax base to another country.
  9. The EU is a construct of the 1950’s, but the world has moved on. Why remain in a stagnant customs union of corporatism and protectionism, which is holding Britain back?
  10. The EU is providing big corporations with a cheap, mobile, non-unionised labour force – turning human beings into commodities to be shunted around Europe while more and more local workers are being excluded from being able to provide for their families.
