What is impossible to understand about BREXIT is WHY exactly REMAINERS are so obsessed about REMAINING. The arguments for LEAVE are overwhelming, both from the practical and moral points of view AND that of sovereignty.
The latter is not just another academic political term: it is about our SELF-DETERMINATION, our wish to decide ourOWN policies and future. At the basic level, do YOU want to decide what kind of lightbulbs or what shape of cucumbers you can buy, or are you happy for bureaucrats in Brussels to decide for you?
However, it is CATEGORICALLY and ABSOLUTELY impossible to deny with any intellectual conviction whatsoever that being IN THE EU is a huge dilution of our sovereignty, and indeed a TERMINAL THREAT to it. (SEE HERE: http://www.vervinomni.net/id/sov.htm)
I have repeatedly asked REMAINERS to explain just what it IS that so obsesses them - but in vain. They almost NEVER give any reasons, let alone convincing ones. Instead they do the classic Whitehall trick: "Play the man and not the ball.": hence all the content-free insults that come our way.
But wishing to LEAVE does NOT mean we are"anti-Europe", merely "anti-EU as it currently functions". And please note:
But we simply will not be RULED from the continent.
Ken Clarke said in 1966:
"I look forward to the day when the Westminster Parliament is just a council chamber in Europe."
The bottom line? Is the following REALLY a price you want to pay?
PLEASE READ THAT LAST CLAUSE AGAIN. NOT ONE SINGLE EUROPEAN CITIZEN HAS EVER, ANYWHERE VOTED TO BE PART OF A EUROPEAN FEDERAL STATE, which is what EACH SUCCESSIVE EU TREATY is designed to further. If the European elite WANT this, then they HAVE TO GET THE DEMOCRATIC AGREEMENT OF THE PEOPLES OF EUROPE. It is as simple as that - but let's be clear, ANY OTHER WAY of doing it is FASCIST.
LEAVERS do not want to abandon their sovereignty in a European federal state dominated by Germany and with French-style taxation and bureaucracy. We want to be a SOVEREIGN NATION just like ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-FIVE OTHER nations on the planet.
So REMAINERS. Even though ALL THIS WAS DONE TO DEATH in the referendum campaign, let us hear your reasons for so obsessively trying to subvert the democratic choice made in June 2016. OR ELSE GIVE IT UP AND SUPPORT YOUR DEMOCRACY.
