|BREXIT THE MOVIE|
a 'bite-sized' chunk
from the topics below:-
'Brexit the Movie' is a WAGTV production written, directed and presented by Martin Durkin. In our opinion it's an excellent piece of work and we thoroughly recommend watching as much of it as you can, if you really want to understand the full background to your vote on June 23rd.

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?
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.
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, 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.

THE UK IS NO LONGER A SOVEREIGN NATION - Part 1
Government report shows how Brussels controls our country
Under Referendum law, the Government was forced to issue a report, on the last day before the official Referendum period started on 15th April 2016.
The conclusions from the report are so damning the Government 'buried' it. We've read the 96 pages and here are the key facts for you:-
If a country's laws aren't supreme, if it can't control its borders,
and if so many of its policies are decided by foreign countries,
how can that country be considered to be a Sovereign Nation?

YOUR COUNTRY (THE EU) CONTINUES TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR YOU
The EU’s Foreign Minister Mogherini and 7 EU Commissioners went to Tehran yesterday for 2 days of cooperation talks with Iran.
No, you didn’t elect Ms Mogherini, not any of the seven Commissioners who went with her. You weren't given the chance. However moves were agreed for:-

IS THE UK TRULY A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY? - Part 2
The question is simple:-
And the answer is equally simple:-
So in practice (which is what counts), we cannot be said to live in a sovereign country.
So no, in everyday language the UK is not currently a sovereign nation.
But if we vote to leave, it will be sovereign again.

Just How Many Of Our Laws Are Made By Brussels?
Here is the extent of the various types of EU laws and regulations which bind the UK, without our full and democratic involvement:-
There are over 112,000 in total, currently in force.
EU LEGAL INSTRUMENTS
SUB-TOTAL : 55,186
SUB-TOTAL : 57,614
GRAND TOTAL : 112,800
112,800 is a lot of laws, regulations, and standards....

Before Mr Cameron Was Elected Prime Minister, What Did He Say?
CONSERVATIVE MANIFESTO 2010, ON SOVEREIGNTY
“The steady and unaccountable intrusion of the European Union into almost every aspect of our lives has gone too far."
"A Conservative government will negotiate for three specific guarantees – on the Charter of Fundamental Rights, on criminal justice, and on social and employment legislation – with our European partners to return powers that we believe should reside with the UK, not the EU."
"We seek a mandate to negotiate the return of these powers from the EU to the UK.”
In six years, no powers have been returned. Leaving means taking back control.

Laws and Democracy - What The EU Elite Think About You
Much is said about how many of our laws are made by foreigners in Brussels. (Most commentators now accept it's around 50%.)
But what about basic principles of democracy? Here are the thoughts of our elite EU leaders.
EU COMMISSION PRESIDENT JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER:
On British calls for a referendum over the latest (Lisbon) EU Treaty:
“Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?”
On Greece's economic meltdown in 2011:
"When it becomes serious, you have to lie.”
On EU monetary policy:
"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious ... I am for secret, dark debates."
On French referendum over EU constitution:
“If it's a Yes, we will say 'on we go', and if it's a No we will say 'we continue’.”
On the introduction of the euro:
"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."
On eurozone economic policy and democracy:
“We all know what to do, we just don't know how to get re-elected after we've done it.”
On the French and Dutch referendums when the voters said no:
“I believe neither the French nor the Dutch really rejected the constitutional treaty.”
“The EU is like the orchestra playing on the Titanic,” Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said. Bloomberg interview 10/02/16
“I feel that as a historian it is very similar to some very dangerous moments in our history. You know what I mean: it is like the day before World War One,” he said. Donald Tusk, President of European Council, 10/02/16
“For the past few years, the European Union has been operating in permanent crisis mode. Confronted with one challenge after another, we rush from one emergency summit to the next. More than once we have come to the brink of catastrophe, avoiding disaster by the skin of our teeth.” Martin Schulz, President of European Parliament, at the LSE, 05/02/16
“Europe without Great Britain does not count and is not a counterweight against China, against Russia and against the United States” Guy Verhofstadt, Leader, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe group of MEPs. 03/02/16
Speaking exclusively to The Independent about the implications of Brexit, Dr Letta (former PM of Italy) said: “The European Union without the UK is not the European Union. The UK’s exit will be the first step in European Union decline.” 11/02/16
“There is an economic and social state of emergency” French President Hollande, 18/01/16
Reading the above, would you want to join the EU if we weren't already members?

Please read our 'Help Needed' page for details.
Facts4eu.org is non party-political and not supported by any Brexit campaign.
We present facts we've researched from official government and EU sources.
Now that the Referendum has been won, we have 2 main aims:
1. To provide bullet-pointed and factual summaries of key points, to help people to ensure Brexit is delivered in full.
2. Crucially, to allow MPs and campaigners to give reliable and consistent facts to the public.
Please don't hesitate to contact the Editors if you can volunteer in some way, and particularly if you can support us financially.
NEUTRALITY: Facts4eu.org focuses on information which shows that the UK is better off regaining its independence and growing globally. The entire weight of the Establishment is promoting the opposite case, so this site is just one small voice trying to redress the balance.
