EU Crisis: the need for hope and change
So who really benefits from the EU?
15th June 2016
You do not get change by voting 'yes sir', 'yes sir'. The EU puts politics before people. We cannot remain on this course. Voting to Remain will be to give political cover to the real EU and support Brussels and Frankfurt taking more control over peoples’ lives.
Whilst people are suffering across the EU, there are 10,000 EU officials that are paid more than the British Prime Minister who earns £142,000 per year.
The EU Funding Trick
You are on the hook for the EU's debts
15th June 2016
There is no such thing as EU money... there is only taxpayers' money. Remain campaigners suggest that the EU funds all kinds of schemes in the UK. The EU tries to take credit for our money, yet in 2015 we paid nearly £13 billion to the EU. This is money that we can spend better ourselves. To suggest that we cannot decide how to spend our own money is an affront to democracy as well as common sense.
Funding for an EU project comes from us, the EU simply tries to take the glory as well as a big fee for their trouble.
We want our money back!
For Family Businesses
A level playing field for small, medium and family businesses
21st April 2016
A vote to leave will give us more say over our economy. It is an opportunity to have:
● Fair taxation, end big business tax avoidance by restoring national control
● A level playing field for small and medium sized businesses
● Bolster small businesses
● Support entrepreneurship
● Accountable British people helping to make the regulations, not a faceless bureaucrat in Brussels
● Global trading, better opportunities to open up global markets
● Access to the single market without our economy being dominated by those countries who make policies in the name of Europe what they will not ask for themselves
EU Militarisation: A Dangerous Future
Protect our defence and security – Vote to Leave the EU
21st April 2016
According to Colonel Richard Kemp Britain would be forced to join an EU army within five to 10 years if people vote to Remain in the EU.
“An EU army is inevitable. As the EU has declared, it is moving to ever closer union, it intends to become a fully fledged superstate. That’s the plan.”
“We would essentially be giving up our right to sovereign self-defence. Control of the EU army would not rest with us but in a collective EU decision.”
“There would never be consensus for an EU military operation to retake the Falklands. It could not happen.”
How the EU Keeps You Poor
Again and Again official figures are showing the EU system makes us poorer than we would be without the EU
8th April 2016
By allowing the free movement of labour, the EU is turning Britain into a low wage and low productivity economy - again we see our competitiveness reduced by EU membership. Even in Germany, the only beneficiary of the Euro, working people have seen almost no increase in living standards for many years. So who wins? It is actually lose/lose for Britain and the countries in central and eastern Europe who lose the labour, and the chance to build their own countries up.
The EU is a stagnant old system and it is holding, not just Britain but all of the EU back. A vote to Leave does not just set Britain free to flourish but will give hope to all Europe.
Immigration makes it harder to attend a good university, obtain a well-paid job, and secure affordable living accommodation. It is also having a debilitating effect on the countries of Central, Eastern and Suthern Europe who are suffering from a brain drain. The are losing their best and brightest to low wage employment in our post-industrial services sector.
EU and Poverty Briefing
This is a briefing supporting the 'How the EU makes you poor' leaflet. The briefing gives you, the activist, the arguments to use and back-up information when discussing the topic with an undecided voter. It can also be used to deliver a presentation on migration issues.
8th April 2016
Stuart Rose, who was Executive Chairman of Marks & Spencer, speaking to MPs suggests that wages of low skilled workers could rise in the event of Britain leaving the EU.
According to the former M&S boss if there were restrictions on EU migrants, then “the price of labour will, frankly, go up”.
