At stake – the future of our democracy
On issues like the economy, immigration and the NHS, should decisions be made by an open, public debate or behind closed doors by un-elected and unaccountable officials? As the EU has grown in strength, decisions have increasingly been made by people we have no control over.
We don’t have to stay in the EU to trade with EU member states
The pro-EU campaign wants us to think leaving the EU would bring trade to a halt with other EU countries, but that is not true. Norway and Switzerland outside the EU enjoy trading with the EU, so do many other countries like China and the USA.
The EU threatens our legal rights
In this country we have rights to protect us from arbitrary punishment. Jury trials and Habeas Corpus mean we cannot be locked for days without a fair trial. However, under the European Arrest Warrant, we can be sent to another country where these protections do not exist.
Choosing independence is not racist
The people of Ghana were not called racist when it became independent. No one said the Jamaicans turned their backs on the world, when it gained independence. Voting to leave is about the people of Britain choosing to manage their own affairs through a democratic political system. It has nothing to do with being against anyone else.
If in doubt, vote out!
We face a momentous decision: whether to remain within the EU and see our democratic system of government wither away, or choose independence and take control of our nation and its laws.
