Remaining in the EU means more power will flow to the EU from the UK 


Post Image

Local voters want to end the live export of animals. Parliament cannot do so in the EU. Local voters also oppose aspects of the EU’s TTIP trade deal but trade policy is decided by the EU, not the UK. The EU can speak on our behalf on foreign affairs, which affects the security of British people. Plans to strengthen European foreign policy and back it with European armed forces have been delayed until after the referendum. According to the President of the […]

The EU wastes your money


Post Image

According to the European Court of Auditors, €7 billion of the 2013 budget was misspent. However, the EU has a very loose definition of the word ‘misspent’, Here are a few examples of projects judged to be money well spent: €500,000 paid to two fishermen to scrap their boat in the interests of reducing overfishing. That cleared their debts and paid for a new, smaller boat in which they continued fishing. €2.5 million to support an Austrian nomadic contemporary dance troupe. […]

Our great country will thrive in the world outside the EU


Post Image

Our great country will thrive in the world beyond the EU. We have: The 5th largest economy in the world. The 4th most powerful military in the world. A permanent seat on the EU security council. The largest financial centre in the world. Some of the finest universities in the world. A globally-used language, democratic system and common law. Strong relationships across the globe. Don’t listen to those who talk Great Britain down. Let’s leave and put the UK on a brighter path of prosperity through self-government […]

A vote to Leave is a vote to start exit negotiations


Post Image

Leaving the EU is a process, not an event which will happen on 24th June. Nothing changes in law when we vote Leave. We are not choosing a government on 23 June. A Leave result in this referendum will instruct the current Government to negotiate our exit on the best possible terms. As the Chairman of Britain Stronger In Europe, Lord Rose, openly admitted: It’s not going to be a step change or somebody’s going to turn the lights out […]

Your money is being spent to help millions of people join the EU


Post Image

We are paying almost £2 billion to encourage Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey to join the EU. When they join, over 88 million more people will have a right to live and work in the UK. The Government cannot control migration from the EU if we remain. We have a flourishing economy in this country with great public services and a National Living Wage. That is bound to attract more people. Free movement of people is a noble dream but many local people despair of the cost […]

Protect our public services


Post Image

The EU makes many rules which have a massive impact on our public services. With plans for taking control of health policy in each of its member states, the EU’s influence over our NHS will only increase. As an undemocratic backroom manoeuvre, the EU Commission is creating and implementing policies which will greatly affect our local services without so much as asking UK citizens for consent. One such initiative is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which poverty campaign group, War on Want, called: An […]

Decisions made in our Parliament and our courts can be struck down by the EU


Post Image

Decisions made in our Parliament and our courts can be struck down by the EU. European Union law trumps the laws and courts of the UK. Important policies, including in areas such as immigration and VAT, can be completely overturned by the EU. For example, Parliament wants to end the Tampon Tax by charging no VAT on sanitary products. The EU blocks this reform. Those who don’t like or support the party of government in the UK have it within their power to vote them […]

Half a day’s net EU contribution would clear our annual local NHS Trust deficit


Post Image

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s deficit this year is £10 million. Our net EU contribution is equivalent to £23 million per day. In other words, just half a day’s net contribution to the EU by UK taxpayers would cover the annual deficit of our local NHS Trust. As I set out in my article on the cost of EU membership, the UK is billed the equivalent of over £50m a day by the EU. After taking into account our negotiable rebate and payments by the EU to UK farmers, […]

The EU isn’t working


Post Image

It is increasingly clear that the EU isn’t working for its members. Much has been claimed about the importance of the EU for creating and preserving jobs in the UK. Unemployment in the UK is currently at 5 percent, compared with the EU’s 8.9 percent and the Eurozone’s 10.3 percent. The EU is not working. With a youth unemployment rate of 19.4 percent compared with the UK’s 13.6 percent, the EU is particularly failing its young citizens, especially those in southern countries: […]
