Well, it’s all about sovereignty, innit. We want our country back.
But Britain is a sovereign nation. The only body that can make laws for Britain is the government of Britain. Sure, many of those laws have to be aligned with the EU but Britain can say no, it can opt out when the country feels sufficiently strongly.
Britain opted out of the ERM, opted not to join the Schengen area, opted not to join the euro (currency). The EU cannot control Britain’s borders, only the UK can do that.
Think on this: if the UK had lost is sovereignty to the EU, would we even be having this referendum now?
There are some who say that the EU is undemocratic.
Good. I look forward to their campaigns to get rid of the UK’s unelected head of state, I look forward to them supporting the dissolution of the UK’s unelected second chamber of Parliament, the House of Lords, I eagerly anticipate them forbidding unelected media owners propagandising through their news outlets, and most of all I look forward to them separating business and politics to stop the practice of the unelected CEOs buying politicians to favour their industries.
Seems that Britain’s campaign to leave the EU has gone to delightfully witty (and presumably short) lengths to get their message across.
Brexiteers have begun distributing condoms printed with the messages: ‘Vote leave: It’s riskier to stay in’, and ‘Vote Leave: it’s riskier to stay in.’
They don’t seem to realise that the point of condoms is you don’t have to pull out.
Now, who’s going to tell them?
