In response to Andrew Cadman: Creating an alternative to the EU would galvanise Tory Euroscepticism, Bogbrush wrote:
I think another point is that nobody likes a whiner, and all the anti-EU message seems to be is whining. It switches people off, and leaves the argument wide open to the picture that life outside the EU is dangerous and scary.
People need a positive message: fewer moans, more opportunity, and a clearer articulation of exactly why it is that leaving the EU can create more jobs, more economic success, more control, more good stuff, not just less bad.
Don’t get me wrong, I would vote to leave in a minute but not everyone is as relaxed about going it alone – most people are easily scared and will opt for the rubbish EU they are currently alive and well in against the scary future that the BBC, multi-national corporations and the Government will push at them.
