It is really all about the right to self determination and for making our MPs accountable for a change. They are terrified that if we leave, they will be held directly accountable for their actions rather than being able to lay off the blame to Brussels. That is how weak the people are who supposedly run our country. There's no self-belief, no confidence in ourselves, no backbone. Time we had some of that back. I am sick and tired of people talking down this country and asserting that we would fail on our own. How the hell did we manage before we joined the eu? The EU project has been going on for 70 years. But that is not the EU project that the general public is aware of. As for prosperity, the European steel and coal treaty or what ever it was called had nothing to do with our prosperity as we were not part of it. I would willingly return to the 7% growth rate we had prior to joining the EEC. We were far from the sick man of Europe that is commonly portrayed in the mainstream media. Our medium term economic record prior to 1973 doesn't fit the establishment's narrative. As for security the EU has done didley squat for that and it's getting getting worse. EU defence policy: 1. Scrap NATO 2. **** off the Americans and portray them as anti EU 3. Build a brand new mega new defense HQ to house an over bloated over paid over pensioned defense bureaucracy. 4. Appoint all your mates or yourself to said bureaucracy 5. Spend other countries money to implement this policy, no guesses who I am referring to there. 6. Replace all German tanks gun barrels with broom handles to scare the Russians so they don't get any ideas. 7 ....... You get the idea! As for the breakup of the EU, being a negative it might just save our bacon.
