Please vote to leave the EU

We've heard all sorts of pros and cons about staying or leaving '“ I made up my mind five years ago for out.

We’ve been in the EU for 43 years. We all have our own shopping list of what to do with £350m per week or with rebates we pay in £161m (still a lot of money).

By coming out, charity begins at home so no more pot holes, best hospitals, schools etc, the list goes on.

David Cameron has said by staying in we will get reforms.

I don’t think so. After all when he came back in February – like Chamberlain did in 1938 waving his bit of paper – the other 27 leaders were laughing behind his back. He is too weak to bring change, but we as a nation can change Europe by giving them all a bloody nose and waking them all up.

Perhaps those that want to stay, want to see our remaining few fisherman all go to the wall, because their very small quotas only allow 3-5 days fishing per month.

And yet the Spanish and French can and will clean out all fish stocks and, don’t forget, they are allowed to fish right up to our shoreline.

Once the fishermen have gone, that’s it. Like cash, once it’s gone, it’s gone.

We as Great Britain are not allowed to sell any goods outside the EU without Brussels’ say so. Instead of selling to 7.5 billion people world wide , we can only sell to a very small number of 502million. That’s not many people. What a very small club and it’s costing us billions per year .

Let us please make sure that we become Great Britain again. We are so unique in thousands of ways. Europe will still sell to us. Are BMW not going to sell us the Chelsea tractors? Will the French stop selling wines to us? Of course not. Will our holidays cost a bit more? They might do, whose to know, but I think they will come down, as there will be no more airport tax to pay (that’s Brussels telling us what to do yet again). So please vote out.

China were not dumping all that steel, it’s Germany and we are not allowed under EU rules to say anything, that’s why it’s all gone very quiet and apart from our few MEPs, the rest who make up the rules are not voted in by anyone (Neil Kinnock voted to get back out in 1975, he said it was a mistake to have gone in, in 1973), Now that he’s working there and on a very good wage, he now wants us to stay in. All our Commonwealth nation want to sell to us but not to EU, Mr B Obama said it might take us ten years to trade. They’ve not traded with us as one nation since 1955 (61 years ago) oh wow.

So to end, I don’t think we have anything to fear. Please vote to leave.
