We must rule ourselves

The real reasons for leaving the EU are really self evident.

Forget the doom and gloom that is being broadcast by the Remain Group, the important issues are simple: Do we, the people of the UK, want to regain control of our borders? Do the people of this country want the surge of migration to be controlled and regulated? Are the people voting to stay in the EU prepared to pay the EU the cost of supporting the euro, which is the sickest currency in the world?

Do the people want this country to retain its national identity for the next generations of children. Professor David Coleman, the country’s top population expert, says white Britons could be in the minority by the late 2060s and sooner if current immigration trends continue.

The Office for National Statistics estimates that the population of this country will reach 80million by 2060.

Do the people of Britain want to be ruled by an unelected body that moves from Brussels to Strasberg each year at a cost of £150million? This is akin to moving the British Parliament from London to Newcastle when hundreds of MPs and their baggage would move en-block because of the crazy rules of the EU.

In the Blair years more than three million migrants came to the UK. The cost, according to a study was about £114billion.

Disregard what the leaders of the Remain Group are saying. We are a great country with a greater future – we must not give up.

Should we remain in the EU we will be forced to take in as many migrants as the EU dictates. We will be forced to become an integral part of a proposed a Federal Europe – no say, no influence, no independence, no control of our future, in fact, it would be goodbye Britain.

I know where my vote is going – leave.
