Laura Perrins: If Blair, Brown and Mandelson want to stay, I want to go


The BSE campaign was launched yesterday to terrorise us all into staying in the EU. Really, it is the BSE campaign – Britain Stronger in Europe. Only we are not stronger in Europe, are we?

Here I give you three reasons to vote to leave. Now sit down and put your thinking brain on because this gets complicated; the economics, the foreign policy, the social policy. I might include a graph.

The three reasons to vote to leave are these: Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Peter Mandelson all want to stay in. Now I might not be able to understand the macro whats-its from the micro-widgets but I know this: I intend to be on the opposite side of the argument to these three megalomaniacs.

When Tony Blair digs out some weapons of mass destruction (on which imaginary basis we went to war) then I will listen to him. When Gordon Brown apologises for wrecking the economy after he boasted that he had abolished boom and bust I will desist from turning off the radio whenever he comes on. And when Peter Mandelson emigrates to a Syrian refugee camp where he can show off that leftie compassion of his, I will consider what he says. Until that point comes, I am voting to leave.

No doubt we will be patronised and terrorised into believing that world will end if we vote to leave the EU. It will not.

I fail to see how leaving a ultra-bureaucratic, undemocratic, highly indebted trade group will hurt British interests. It might hurt vested interests – but that is not the same thing.

So there we have it. Three concise and persuasive reasons to tell the BSE campaign to PFO. I told you it was complicated.
