The EU is always changing. This isn’t a choice between change and the status quo.
Voting to Leave is to vote for freedom and control; voting to Remain is to vote for a future of further integration which is out of our hands.
The EU’s recent “Five President’s Report” sets out transfers of control over:
- Social security
- Property rights
- Insolvency law
- Company law
- Our place in international institutions
This report stated that:
This will inevitably involve sharing more sovereignty over time
The European Commission have also announced further transfers of control over:
- An EU army
- An EU intelligence agency
- EU control of gas supplies
- Health policy
- Scrapping our zero rates of VAT
- The development of common European social rights
The architects of the EU always intended to increase the scope of the EU and centralise power. As former European Commission President José Manuel Barroso has said:
We will need to move towards a federation of nation states
The EU intends to take over even more areas of government policy, which voters and MPs alike will have no power to change or veto. Control over the care we receive in our hospitals and the tax we pay on products in our shops could be handed to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels. There is no status quo on the ballot paper.
For the change we need, vote Leave on 23rd June
