“EU: unnecessary, lawless, corrupt, mistaken, undemocratic, bureaucratic, over-regulated and unworkable” says EU Chief Accountant
The words above are by Marta Andreasen from her book “Brussels Laid Bare”, written following her brief period from January to May 2002 as the EU’s Chief Accountant – before she was ignominiously fired by her EU bosses for refusing to comply with their corruption and injustice!
As Ms Andreasen goes on to say, her dealings with the EU administration: “only helped to confirm the commission’s essentially bankrupt philosophy and total disregard for justice, truth or equity.”
She shares with MEP Daniel Hannan his profound misgivings about the essential nature of the EU: “The truth is that EU fraud is structural: a product of how the Brussels institutions are set up … and I have reached the view that the system is beyond reform.”
He goes on to say “We are so blasé about Brussels fraud that we no longer notice it. It doesn’t make the newspapers any more: that’s the shocking thing.”
“We dislike the EU because we see it for what it is: a racket, whose chief function is to look after its own.”
If Britain votes in the referendum on 23rd June to leave the EU and it subsequently proved to be a poor decision, then we could always conduct a second referendum to sanction applying to re-join the EU, and no permanent serious harm would have been caused. In these circumstances those countries remaining as EU members ought to welcome us back, since they claim that the EU is stronger with Britain as a fellow member and say that they don’t want us to leave.
We have nothing to lose by voting for Brexit, as the only certain way of finding out whether the claim is true that an independent Britain would thrive when freed from the costs and restrictions imposed by EU membership.
The argument that Britain would not be burning its bridges behind it by opting for Brexit, that there would be a way of reversing the decision if it was found to be necessary, is one that convinces me that quitting the EU is something that should be tried in order to prove once and for all whether Britain would be better off socially and economically free from the EU. Let us have at least five to ten years of independence to see how things turns out.
If Britain booms and we achieve more peace, security and prosperity, then the advocates of independence will have been vindicated.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
