MORE PROOF WE'LL BE BETTER OFF OUT
EU President Juncker
(from Luxembourg)
embraces Angela Merkel
LUXEMBOURGERS ARE 2.5 TIMES BETTER OFF THAN BRITS
Astonishing official EU figures show how Brits are worse off in EU

  • Yet we have the best performing economy in the EU
  • Belgians are richer than us, and so are the Irish
  • Luxembourgers have 2.5 times our standard of living
  • EU President Jean-Claude Juncker is a Luxembourger
British people are being taken for a ride
Vote Leave to get us out of this crippling 1950’s institution
Let’s Make All of Britain Great Again

22 June
I WANT TO LIVE IN A BETTER WORLD
  • A world where my country looks outward and embraces the whole planet
  • A world of challenge, opportunity and innovation, not hopelessness and constraint
  • A world where democracy and free-thinking are reality, not throw-away ideas
  • A world where our children can thrive and grow internationally
  • A world no longer dominated by a self-perpetuating class of the political elite
  • A world where decisions are made because they’re right, not because they fit group-think
  • A world of proportionate and real compassion, not mindless tweets
  • A world of truth, justice and freedom, not lies, deceipt and subjection
  • I want to live in a world of hope, confidence and belief
I want to live in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

I will vote Leave on Thursday to live in a better world

THE CREATION OF THE EU DEFENCE UNION IS IN THE TREATY
WE HAVE NEVER LIED ABOUT OUR FACTS
European Defence Agency (EDA) just published 2015 accounts
  • UK spent £1.4 billion on “EU collaborative defence equipment” with EDA
  • How can Remain possibly argue that an EU army isn’t coming?
  • It’s EU policy and now we have the proof of UK 2015 spending on this
  • This is merely indicative of how voters have been lied to
We deeply regret having to use the word ‘lie’
but when the beret fits, wear it
Vote Leave to get us out of this mess
Vote Leave to keep the British forces defending the British people

Norwegians are happy and richer outside the EU
YOUNGER VOTERS - OUR FUTURE
You’ve not been served well in the EU Referendum debate
Younger voters like you have more enquiring minds in general
You’re less ‘set in your ways’
You deserved better information for you to make your decision
You didn’t get it, instead you got propaganda
Well, give us 2 mins, we’ll give you some interesting facts

THE TRUTH FOR YOUNGER VOTERS
Real facts
With the upbeat
Facts4EU.org Team
Let's embrace the whole World
YOUNGER VOTER?
Part 1 – EU and THE WORLD
Remaining friends with Europe
  • The EU countries will always be our near-neighbours
  • Most people voting Leave love Europe but dislike the EU
  • The EU is a bureaucratic institution, it’s not the people of Europe
  • The Chairman of Vote Leave even lives in France!
What is the EU in terms of the World?
  • EU is only 7% of the World, so we’re talking about going global again
  • Yes, Europe is on our doorstep, but the internet has changed the world
  • Why confine yourself to the EU?
  • Voting Leave is about embracing the EU AND the entire World

YOUNGER VOTER?
Part 2 – TRAVEL AND STUDY
TRAVELLING AND STUDYING ABROAD – NO PROBLEM
You’re told that all this will stop if you vote to leave – not true
  • By train: If we leave the EU, you can still buy an Interrail pass. 20 non-EU nationalities are listed on the official site, including places like Russia and Albania. So no change there
  • By plane: Cheap flights are not confined to EU countries or EU citizens. For example Easyjet flies to non-EU countries in Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East, Norway. So no change there either
  • Studying: The Erasmus programme is open to non-EU students, for example students from Turkey, Macedonia, Iceland. So no change there either
You may feel on reading the above that you’ve been misled
We can’t disagree with you
If you vote leave, you’ll still be able to travel cheaply
and study abroad
No change, but you’ll also get more opportunities worldwide

Part 3 – CHEAP ROAMING CHARGES
CHEAP ROAMING CHARGES EVEN IF WE LEAVE
Cheap roaming isn’t confined to EU members
Yes, you’ve been told that you’ll lose these, but it’s not true
These also apply to many non-EU countries
  • Biggest mobile operators’ tariffs are not EU-membership based :-
  • THREE : 19 destinations, mix of non-EU and EU countries. Non-EU includes Australia, USA, Indonesia, New-Zealand, Israel, Sri Lanka etc
  • EE : Euro data pass: for 39 countries
  • O2 : Lists 42 destinations for the same roaming tariff
  • VODAFONE : And again, 40 countries regardless if EU members or not.
You can still communicate cheaply with your smartphone
if you vote Leave

THE UK IS
FORWARD-LOOKING, NOT STUCK IN THE 1950's
THE UK – READY AND ABLE TO FORGE AHEAD IN THE WORLD
Without the shackles of the EU, UK will thrive again
Just some British inventions since 1950s when EU started :-
  • Invention of World Wide Web – Sir Tim Berners-Lee
  • Discovery of DNA, then DNA profiling
  • Carbon fibre
  • First transistor computer
  • First laptop computer
  • Cash machines and PIN numbers
  • SMS text messaging

THE UK IS
FORWARD-LOOKING, NOT STUCK IN THE 1950's
THE EU – A FAILING INSTITUTION,
STUCK IN THE 1950's
  • EU started in 1957 and it’s founders had 1950's principles
  • Their ideology hasn't changed, even though the world has moved on
  • In the 1950's EU wanted - and still wants - EU to be one country
  • Governed from the centre by a dominant bureaucratic elite
  • Keeping the people in the dark, deciding what’s best for them
"We decide on something, leave it lying around, and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don't understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back."

Jean-Claude Juncker, EU Commission President
This is NOT the British way
History shows that democratic countries do best
The bureaucrat-run EU is still stuck in the 1950's
Vote Leave tomorrow for a bright, global future

ANOTHER POSITIVE ECONOMIC CASE FOR LEAVE
With exclusive and detailed analysis
From the upbeat
Facts4EU.org Team
EVEN GOVERNMENT DATA SHOWS WE'LL GROW FAST
Osborne and Cameron say we'll grow a little faster if we remain, but we leave you to decide
The important facts are that the Treasury data still shows we grow fast if we vote Leave
UK TREASURY:
MASSIVE GROWTH ON BREXIT
  
  • The data shows that after Brexit, we’ll have superb growth
  • 50% growth in national income (GDP) per person by 2030
  • We’ve used the Treasury Dept’s own official figures
  • They forecasted to 2030, which we think is ridiculous
  • They haven’t even got forecasts right for the next 4 months
  • However, that’s what they’ve used, so we’ve used their data
  • And it shows excellent growth if we vote Leave
This comes from official Treasury Dept data
(pro-EU and pessimistic)
The reality will be even better
The future’s bright, the future’s Brexit
Vote Leave on Thursday for a bright, global future

Corbyn on Sky ‘Young Voters’ Debate
YOUNGER VOTERS - MR CORBYN'S
'REFORMABLE EU' ISN'T ON OFFER
How did it go in the Sky ‘Young Voters’ Debate last night?
Last night Jeremy Corbyn said :-
  • ‘The EU has to change quite dramatically, to something much more democratic, much more accountable’
  • ‘I’m opposed to TTIP (EU-US trade deal), being negotiated in secret between the EU and the US’
  • ‘I want to remain in the EU in order to change it
Fine words, but unfortunately here’s the reality :-
The EU has shown it simply won’t reform on any serious issues
Cameron held a gun to their head, but got nothing
A reformable EU isn’t on the ballot paper on Thursday
You now have a lifetime’s chance to change your world
It’s up to you to take it on Thursday

CAMERON'S WILD CLAIMS DESTROYED AGAIN
CAMERON'S TV AUDIENCE DEBATE LAST NIGHT
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
  1. ‘Our economy will be smaller - all my rich expert friends say so’
  2. ‘Weaker economy means a punishment budget’
  3. ‘Immigration is small price to pay for Single Market’
  4. ‘Turkey won’t join until year 3000’
  5. ‘There will be no EU army’
Mr Cameron’s claims are one thing

New readers please note: All facts are researched from original official sources. In this series this morning (blue background), we haven't been able to cite sources as we've run out of money and resources. However all these facts are sourced on earlier pieces on this site.

GROWING WORLD ECONOMY
FAILING EU ECONOMY
THE GROWING WORLD ECONOMY
AND THE FAILING EU ECONOMY
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
  1. EU is fastest-failing economic bloc in World – only 17% and falling fast
  2. After 43 years, no trade agreements with USA, India, China, and all important and growing World markets
  3. EU prevents UK doing its own deals while being a Member
  4. EU is only 7% of World
  5. UK after Leave vote can trade with 100% of World
UK economy can only do better outside EU control
Vote Leave to embrace the growing World economies

MR CAMERON’S RICH ‘EXPERT’ FRIENDS
'Perma-Orange' Pro-EU Christine Lagarde of the IMF

Facing fraud charges in France
MR CAMERON’S RICH ‘EXPERT’ FRIENDS
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
Cameron’s rich experts depend on the ‘gravy-train’ for their jobs
  • They’re paid £130,000 - £880,000 – most of them on tax-free incomes
  • Over 10,000 EU staff are paid more than our Prime Minister
  • The ‘Experts’ were wrong on Euro – lucky we didn’t listen to them then
  • They were wrong about ERM – caused massive recession in UK in 1990s
  • They completely failed to predict 2008 World crash
  • Treasury got budget wrong by £27 billion in just 5 months this year
All Cameron’s rich experts use same wrong assumptions – deliberately
Vote Leave to embrace the growing World economies
20 June
IF WE LEAVE, WE CAN PROTECT OUR NHS, SCHOOLS, HOUSING, PENSIONERS
Immigration is affecting our NHS
WEAK ECONOMY IF WE LEAVE, NHS & PENSIONERS THREATENED?
We destroy Cameron’s Remaining arguments
  • EU doesn’t have free healthcare – private insurance is normal
  • No EU country has a system like our NHS, free at point of delivery
  • Mass immigration is pushing public services to the limit
  • Dramatic increase in demand for hospitals, schools, housing
  • 3.7 million people on overall waiting list for referral to treatment
  • Pensioners will still have triple-lock after Brexit
Save our NHS, your family’s health, schools, housing, pensioners
Vote to leave the EU and save our public services
20 June
IMMIGRATION - DEFINITELY NOT A PRICE WORTH PAYING
Real incomes have fallen thanks to EU
IMMIGRATION – PRICE TO PAY FOR 'SINGLE MARKET'?
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
  • At current rates, UK will have 10 million EU migrant workers by 2030
  • With dependents, that's at least 15 million EU immigrants by 2030
  • NHS can’t cope, nor can schools and local councils
  • And what about the effect on our housing?
  • We also show British people’s real standard of living under EU
Save our NHS, your family’s health, schools, housing, pensioners
Vote to leave the EU and save our public services
20 June
IT'S OFFICIAL UK & EU POLICY TO ACCELERATE TURKEY JOINING THE EU
‘TURKEY WON’T JOIN UNTIL YEAR 3000’ – REALLY?
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
  • It’s official UK government policy for Turkey to join EU
  • It’s official EU policy for Turkey to join EU
  • Cameron has always been passionate about Turkish membership
  • In March, Cameron joined all EU leaders to vote to accelerate Turkey’s membership
  • EU is paying Turkey and other poor countries €23 billion to ease joining
  • 79 million Turks will be given visa-free access to EU this year
Cameron refused again last night to veto Turkish membership
Why not, if Turkey won’t join until year 3000?
THE CREATION OF THE EU DEFENCE UNION IS IN THE TREATY
‘THERE WILL BE NO EU ARMY’ – REALLY?
We look at Cameron’s Remaining arguments
So far the EU has created :
  • European External Action Service, EU Institute for Security Studies, European Defence Agency, EU Military Committee, EU Military Staff, the Eurocorps, and EU Battle Groups
Further evidence :
  • 2015 - Jean-Claude Juncker, President of EU Commission: “The European Union needs its own army"
  • German 1st Panzer Division has taken over Dutch 43rd Mechanised Brigade
  • German Rapid Forces Division has taken over Dutch 11th Airmobile Brigade
  • Dutch have now agreed to combine naval forces with Germany
  • April 2016 - German Defence Minister: " Dutch and German [forces] will live, work, train and exercise together in the future. They become a fused entity. This is the path to the European Defence Union"
How much more evidence do you need Mr Cameron?
The worries about the EU Army are real
It’s the clear and stated policy of the EU
Vote Leave to keep the British forces defending the British people

'No upper limit on immigration while in EU' - Corbyn
CORBYN: NO LIMIT ON IMMIGRATION WHILE IN EU
  • “I don’t think you can have an upper limit on immigration while you have free movement of labour”
  • “If you actually deliberately lower living standards and increase poverty in S.E. or E. Europe, then you’re bound to have a flow of people”
  • “It’s the very principle of the Single Market that you have free movement of people
  • “EU’s appalling treatment of Greece, particularly the EU Central Bank as well as the EU – that is a problem”

20 June 2016
FACTS4EU.ORG


Jo Cox MP, R.I.P.
SHOULD PARLIAMENT HAVE BEEN RECALLED TODAY?   -  NO.
We bow to no-one in our sadness at the tragic murder of Jo Cox MP, a democrat and a passionate advocate of her causes. However we feel we must say something.
  • 1979: Airey Neave MP, Shadow Minister, blown up
  • 1981: Robert Bradford MP, assassinated at his surgery
  • 1984: Sir Anthony Berry MP, blown up
  • 1990: Ian Gow MP, blown up
  • 2000: Nigel Jones MP, attacked by machete, assistant killed
  • 2010: Stephen Timms MP, stabbed repeatedly at his surgery
To our knowledge, in not one of these cases was Parliament recalled or a day of Parliamentary business devoted to them.
We know we’ll be pilloried for this editorial but it had to be written.
We leave our readers to decide if they think today’s proceedings in Parliament, following 3 days of a moratorium on campaigning, and only 3 days prior to the Referendum, are a reasonable response to a very tragic event caused by one deranged individual.

The EU's 'table' is an increasingly insignificant place.
Let's regain our place at

CAMERON TALKS ABOUT OUR SEAT AT EU'S 'TOP TABLE'
UK IS ONE IN TWENTY-EIGHT COUNTRIES
What does this mean in practice?
  • 1/28th is the same as 3.6%
  • So the UK is 3.6% of the number of EU countries
  • Does this make you feel like we’re the 5th biggest economy in the World?
  • Why has the UK been outvoted 72 times out of 72 in the EU Council?
  • Is it possible we're put at the back, next to the WC's?

THE POSITIVE CASE FOR SAVING OUR NHS BY VOTING LEAVE
 
 
OUR NHS – UNSAFE IN THE EU’S HANDS
THE EU DAMAGES OUR HEALTH AND THE NHS
Uncontrollable EU immigration causing NHS meltdown
  • NHS now under massive pressure – numbers rising fast
  • NHS staff increased by 21,799 in 2015 but waiting times soaring
  • 3.7 million people on overall waiting list for referral to treatment
  • Emergency admissions up by 3%, diagnostic tests up 6.4%
  • Consultant-led treatment up 3.9%, A&E attendances up 2.3%
The problems of the NHS aren't all down to EU immigration, but how can we continue to fund huge numbers of people coming from the failing EU?
We just can’t cope with uncontrollable EU immigration
But we can solve this
Save our NHS and your family’s health

Jo Cox MP, R.I.P.
JO COX MP
The death of Jo Cox MP on Thursday was a tragedy. We send our sincerest condolences to her husband, her close family, and her friends. Our hearts go out to her two little girls.
We didn’t agree with her views on the EU, but we believe in democracy and in her inalienable right to have expressed her views as an elected representative of the British people. We will go further and say that she put forward her views eloquently and with heartfelt compassion.
It now seems she was murdered by a man who was mentally disturbed, and who had been under medical care and medication for many years.
Jo Cox must be remembered for her compassion, her commitment to public service, and for her joyful attitude to life.

Regrettably we must make a comment in addition. The vote to leave or remain in the EU should be decided on facts and argument. No reasonable person would use the tragic death of Jo Cox in any way in the Referendum debate.
The decision by the Guardian’s Polly Toynbee to politicise Jo Cox’s death is deplorable.
“there are others whose recklessness has been open and shocking. I believe they bear responsibility, not for the attack itself, but for the current mood: for the inflammatory language, for the finger-jabbing, the dogwhistling and the overt racism”
Shame on you, Ms Toynbee. Shame on you.

Jo Cox MP, R.I.P.
CAMPAIGNING IS SUSPENDED, JUNE 17th
We extend our deepest sympathies to Jo Cox's family, friends, and colleagues.
In particular our hearts go out to her two little girls,
who have so tragically lost their Mummy.

THE DECLINE OF UK MANUFACTURING UNDER 43 YEARS OF EU CONTROL
Steel
Aluminium
Cement
Fishing
EU HASN’T HELPED UK MANUFACTURING
Manufacturing has been in decline since we joined EU in 1973
  • Heavy industries (steel, aluminium, cement) - big declines
  • Fishing has dropped -40% since EU trawlers entered our waters
  • Food and drink manufacturing pre-1973: +5.6% p.a. Since EU: -1% p.a.
  • Textiles output pre-1973: +2.6% p.a. Since EU: -6% p.a.
  • Metals output pre-1973: +3% p.a. Since EU: -6%
No-one is saying all decline is down to our EU membership, but some is, and the EU hasn't been a friend to UK manufacturing workers who've lost their jobs.
As the Rt Hon John Redwood MP says “The so-called single market has not helped us grow and has not saved many of our industries from decline”
  • UK has seen factory closures replaced by new facilities started in poorer EU countries
  • UK lost van production to Turkey, car capacity to Slovakia, chocolate to Poland, domestic appliances to the Netherlands and Czech Republic, metal containers to Poland, etc
  • In many cases, EU gave grants or loans to those countries
John Redwood has 3 key questions for Remain:-
  1. Why the industrial decline and closures with production shifting elsewhere in Europe since joining?
  2. Why the surplus with the rest of the world but such a huge deficit with the EU?
  3. Why do we import fish, electricity, steel and much else when we used to be self sufficient?
The EU is ‘last century’ and it hasn't been a friend to
UK manufacturing workers
The World is our future – let’s get out there and grow
John Redwood's Diary This piece has been condensed by Facts4EU.org from an article by the
Rt Hon Dr John Redwood MP, with his kind permission.
His daily diary is certainly worth reading.

Another voter-friendly analysis from Facts4EU.org!
FACTS4EU.ORG PRESENTS THE POSITIVE, INTERNATIONALIST VISION OF THE LEAVE CAMPAIGN
The unelected EU elite thinks about itself
'Leave' thinks about the World!
The World is a big place.
Let's trade and be friends with all of it, not 7% of it.
'LEAVE' MEANS EMBRACING THE WORLD
‘Little Englander’? ‘Isolationist’?
This needs to be hit on the head
  • 206 countries in the World
  • Only 27 countries in the rest of the EU
  • The EU is only 7% of World's population
  • Shouldn't we think about the other 93%?
  • Let's do trade deals with USA, China, Japan, Australia, etc
Outside the EU, the UK can be global and internationalist
Outside the EU, the UK can trade and be friends
with 100% of the World's population, not 7%
A vote to leave means
A better, brighter, more prosperous Britain

GERMAN COMMISSIONER PROVES OUR WORST FEARS

Voting Remain means EU will take even more power - official
These people can't be stopped except by voting Leave
PROOF EU PLANS MORE POWER GRABS
EU Commissioner : EU will take more powers after UK vote
June 14 interview in German (ensuring no TV coverage in UK)
  • In 2017 ‘the European Project will gather new dynamics’
  • ‘Refugee crisis could offer us a great opportunity’
  • ‘We cannot allow these militaries from all those [EU] countries to voice their own views, so there’s this prospective of gathering power and impetus if we join forces’
  • ‘In 2017 we will gather some more power and strength’
Stripping out ‘Commission-speak’, Herr Oettinger was confirming:
‘We’ll wait until you vote, then take more power, and use refugee crisis as excuse for EU army’
Voting Remain is a leap into a very dark place
Vote Leave for a confident stride into a better, brighter, more prosperous Britain with a global future

WOMEN IN BRITAIN SPEAK OUT
Women: 'the most important swing voters'

  • Better rights and protections for women
  • More money for schools and the NHS
  • Lower prices, cheaper car insurance for women

Have you seen this woman?
Name : Theresa May
Age : 59
Missing since : Referendum called
Last seen : HoC Tea Room
Mrs May has been confused recently. She is known to think she's the Home Secretary. She is generally docile, but members of the public are warned not to ask whether she supports the EU, as her reaction could be highly unpredictable.

VOTERS FROM ALL SIDES ARE UNITING TO VOTE LEAVE THE EU

Real Labour supporters and trade union members want Leave
It's all positive at Facts4EU.org
NEWS FOR LABOUR VOTERS & UNION MEMBERS
Gordon Brown campaigning, Jeremy Corbyn made a speech
The key facts you should know :-
  • Not one Labour politician or Union leader believes in the EU as it is
  • All of them, without exception, say the EU needs reforms
  • Reforms they talk about are what the EU calls ‘fundamental’
But there’s a problem with this :-
  • When Cameron threatened EU with leaving, EU still refused reforms
  • He was thrown a few crumbs (see box below)
  • EU simply won’t negotiate reforms wanted by Labour and unions
Next week you’re voting on a dictating, ever-powerful EU
A utopian EU which can and will reform? That's not on offer

WORKERS’ & WOMENS’ RIGHTS COME FROM UK
Shocking facts show our rights would be worse under EU law
1. EU healthcare rights are way below UK standards
  • EU doesn’t have free healthcare – most people have private insurance
  • For example in France it costs £26 just for 5 minutes with your GP
  • No EU country has a system like the UK’s NHS, free at point of delivery
2. EU workers’ rights laws are lower than UK’s
  • For example, UK paid holiday entitlement is 28 days, in EU only 20 days
  • National Minimum Wage Act 1998 – there's no minimum wage in the EU
  • If we adopt all EU laws – as we’ll have to - your rights will decrease
3. UK established workers’ rights long before EU
  • “Protection against sex, race and disability discrimination in the UK pre-dated EU law” (TUC report)
  • Women’s rights: Equal Pay Act, Abortion Act and Divorce Reform Act all passed before UK joined EU
  • Sex Discrimination Act, Domestic Violence Act, Employment Protection Act – no EU involvement
  • EU’s Posted Workers Directive means EU workers can be employed in UK for fraction of the cost of UK workers
4. Finally, workers’ rights are only relevant if you have work
  • In the Eurozone, austerity has taken the jobs of millions of workers
  • You’re twice as likely to be out of work in the Eurozone
  • An entire young generation across southern Europe has been devastated by 50% unemployment
British workers know when they’re being sold a pup
Labour voters & union members are now looking at the facts

LEGAL REPORT SHOWS WE'RE NOT VOTING FOR A 'REFORMED EU'
Martin Howe QC
Legal report by eminent QC and colleagues prove the EU refused to change, even when facing a possible Brexit
SHOCK NEWS ON CAMERON'S ‘REFORMED’ EU
Expert legal report on question: Are we voting for reformed EU?
Simple answer: no.   Complex legal answer: no.
Mr Cameron’s claims of a ‘reformed EU’ are proved untrue:-
  • No change to the EU Treaties and the EU Court is still supreme
  • No difference to the UK’s lack of sovereignty
  • No difference to the EU controlling our immigration
  • Removing ‘ever closer union’ has no legal consequence
  • Takes away our veto, so Eurozone countries can damage us
  • “Today's deal leaves no doubt that the euro is the currency of our Union”. (President Juncker)
Specialist EU legal experts confirm what everyone suspected
"It falls far short of a fundamental renegotiation"

CAMERON CONFIRMED EU TREATY TAKES ‘MASSIVE POWERS’ FROM UK
We should listen to our Prime Minister...

(If using Firefox, you may need to

The British people were never asked to vote on the EU’s Lisbon Treaty – effectively its Constitution

PM confirms it transferred massive powers from UK to Brussels

This EU Treaty governs us today and Cameron changed nothing in his ‘negotiations’
Here’s Mr Cameron in 2009 :-
  • ‘The Lisbon Treaty includes a massive transfer of powers from the nation states of Europe to Brussels’
  • It ends our veto, our right to say no, in about 60 areas’
  • ‘It sets up a permanent President of the EU, a Foreign Minister, a Diplomatic Service’
  • ‘It gives the EU the right to sign Treaties, and the right to sign new Treaties, and to pass new Treaties, new Constitutions, without asking us again, the people of Europe’
The British people were never asked to vote on the EU’s Lisbon Treaty – its Constitution
The Prime Minister confirms it transferred massive powers from UK to Brussels and removed our veto in 60 areas of life
This EU Treaty governs us today and Cameron changed nothing in his ‘negotiations’
We agree with what you said, Prime Minister
Do you agree with yourself?
Voting Leave is now the only democratic thing to do

THE EU EFFECT - RISING ENERGY BILLS. 7 years of EU, compared to 7 years in the USA


Official EU Commission Report on dramatic rise in energy bills in the EU
An official EU Commission Report shows how energy prices have risen over a 7 year period, and and what we can expect in the future if we stay in:-
  • Household electricity prices went up by 22% in the EU, compared to a rise of only 8% in the USA.
  • Household gas prices up by an amazing 45%, compared to a rise of only 3% in the USA.
  • Industry had rises of 38% for electricity and 35% for gas, compared to falls of 4% and 66% in the USA.
  • The EU Commission President said: "Energy costs are set to rise in all scenarios".
Conclusion: EU membership costs us far more
than our net contribution of £10 billion per year.
Remaining In The EU Is Expensive – Leaving Means Taking Control.

CITIZENS OF NON-EU NORWAY AND SWITZERLAND ARE TWICE AS WEALTHY AS EUROZONE CITIZENS


Voters want facts, not wild claims. Here are some real facts from the IMF.
Outside the EU, Norwegians and Swiss are twice as wealthy per person as Eurozone citizens
  • Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU.
  • Unlike all the 13 poorer countries queuing up to join, the Norwegians and the Swiss are very happy being outside the EU.
  • The Remain camp quote Norway and Switzerland all the time, even though the UK will do a 'UK deal' with the EU after we leave, because we're so much bigger than Norway or Switzerland.
  • The graph shows you their GDP (national income) per person
  • Now, would you rather be inside or outside the EU?
The facts show we can be much wealthier out of the EU.
Vote Leave and let’s make Britain great again.

SUMMARISED EXCERPTS from the Business Minister's "Remain" declaration
SAJID JAVID is Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, and the President of the Board of Trade. Note: his pro-remain statement came after Mr Cameron’s ‘renegotiations’ this year.
So these are the pro-remain Business Minister’s current views
Taken from his official and current statement:-
OVERVIEW - “My heart says we are better off out.”
“It's clear now that the United Kingdom should never have joined the European Union. In many ways, it’s a failing project, an overblown bureaucracy in need of wide-ranging and urgent reform.”
“If this year’s referendum were a vote on whether to join in the first place, I wouldn’t hesitate to stand up and say Britain would be better off staying out”.
On Mr Cameron’s ‘Reformed EU’:
“I am disappointed by the scope and scale of the reforms offered by the European Council.” … “Even fans of the EU will admit that further treaty changes are needed to fix crises such as the Eurozone meltdown.”
On our business future post-Brexit:
“I’d embrace the opportunities such a move would create and I have no doubt that, after leaving, Britain would be able to secure trade agreements not just with the EU, but with many others too.”
On Britain being stronger in or out:
“Had we never taken the fateful decision to sign up, the UK would still, of course, be a successful country with a strong economy. We would be an independent trading nation like the US, Japan, or Canada.”
On being out of EU, taking control of immigration, being independent:
“Over the years, we would have developed trade agreements with the EU and with others, all without surrendering control over immigration or our economic independence.”
On the Government’s Project Fear:
“As I’ve said before, a vote to leave the EU is not something I’m afraid of. I’d embrace the opportunities such a move would create…”
“Ignore the scare stories about a vindictive EU snubbing the UK – it simply couldn’t afford to, and an agreement letting the UK maintain its current level of access to EU markets would, eventually, materialise.”
Our interpretation:
The pro-Remain but anti-EU Business Minister seems to be telling us:
‘Our house is on fire, but we can’t call the Fire Brigade
in case they use water to put out the flames.’
NOTE
Mr Javid has always been one of the strongest Eurosceptics in Cabinet. Some say that his eventual statement for ‘Remain’ was made to safeguard his job.
We leave you to decide.

IF YOU’RE A YOUNG VOTER, ASK YOURSELF WHAT’S COMING FOR YOU AND ALL YOUNG PEOPLE OF EUROPE IF WE STAY IN THE EU


How does it feel to be young in mainland Europe?
Youth unemployment is a tragedy all over the EU

The Brussels elite don't seem to care - it's been like this for years.

The only way to make this change is to take action by voting to leave, and forcing them to change their policies.
  • Under 25’s have been suffering joblessness for years in mainland Europe.
  • It’s not only in Greece (50%), in Spain (48%), and in Italy (40%).
  • Even in Brussels, the EU’s Capital, youth jobless is running at 36.2%.
  • However in non-EU European countries the youth jobless rate is an average of only 9.1%.
You choose - stay in the dysfunctional and jobless EU?
Or build a brighter future in an exciting, successful, independent UK, growing rapidly through new global trade partnerships - inspiring our fellow Europeans with an alternative vision that genuinely works.
[Source: Official Eurostat data 2016 ]
 
THE BIGGEST FACT OF THEM ALL - YOU SHOULD READ THIS
IF YOU KNOW THE FACTS, YOU CAN DECIDE
SO WHY IS NO-ONE TELLING VOTERS WHAT 'REMAIN' WILL LOOK LIKE?
  • The EU mutates and grows every year. Often in a significant ways. Generally unreported on British TV.
  • 19 of the 28 countries are now in the Eurozone. They share the common currency: the Euro.
  • All other members except UK and Denmark must join in the end – Treaty rules.
  • The Eurozone is in crisis and the EU's only solution is economic and political union – one state.
  • This was always the intention of the EU's founders from the beginning - now it's coming.
  • Last year the EU set out a plan, described in many official documents, to achieve it.
  • The EU plans to merge all 19 Eurozone countries’ economies and policies by 2025 – only 9 years away.
So by 2025, 19 Eurozone nations will effectively become one country.
You didn't know this? That's because British TV almost never reports such things.
  • Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, the Netherlands, etc will cease to exist as sovereign, self-governing countries.
  • This is fact. States which can't control their budgets, their banks, their taxes, their borrowing, their benefits, their social policies, their borders, and their foreign policy, obviously cannot be considered to be sovereign nations.
  • The UK will then be on the outside of everything. The German-dominated 'United States of Europe' will reign, and yet we'll still be expected to pay ever-growing contributions.
  • The British people will feel like extras, paying to appear in someone else’s foreign movie.
Sounds alarmist?  This future is fully-documented by the EU.
Mr Cameron knows this – why isn’t he telling you what you’re voting for?
For the EU, ‘One Direction’ means one country.
A Financial and Political Union of all member states:
A ‘United States of Europe’.
In the end the UK will be forced to join this political and financial union.
When that happens the Pound will go, your taxes, benefits and laws will come from an unelected government in Brussels (many do already), your armed forces will be under foreign Generals, you’ll have the EU anthem and fly the EU flag, and an EU President will inevitably become Head of State instead of your Queen.
Mr Cameron can say what he likes about our supposed 'special status', or our supposed opt-outs from 'ever closer union', Schengen, and the Eurozone. It won't make any difference. The EU has a long history of ignoring agreements and referendum votes, and of taking ever more power. In the end we'll have to join.
IMPORTANT : Only vote to Remain if the future above is what you want.
