In response to Rob Slane: Dave’s EU clincher. Cost of pencils will rise by 2p if we quit, Craig Martin wrote:
It makes me scratch my head when the ‘In’ (lazy) camp threaten us with doom and gloom if we leave the EU. Job losses, recessions, rising costs etc.
Mainly because all these things have recently happened while we were INSIDE the EU!
Only 8 years ago Britain went broke – IN THE EU!
Britain had tens of thousands of job losses – IN THE EU!
The cost of living soared – IN THE EU!
Britain responded by wanting to apply rules and regulations to financial institutions to prevent disaster from happening again – the EU said NO!
The Remain campaign has not put forward one solid positive argument for what we can gain or grow (status quo is not a positive argument) from staying in the EU.
Probably, because there isn’t one.
In leaving the EU, the ground will have bumps and slides along the way, but at least Britain will have the capacity to manage its own way through any issues without being vetoed by autocratic power-mongers in Brussels, who have no accountability or stake in the future of our country.
