6 reasons why leaving the EU will be awesome (and they’re not what you think).

brexit,leaveEU,independence,united kingdom,europeI’ve never made any secret of the fact that I support the move to leave the EU and have done from day one.

However, as the inevitable mudslinging and scaremongering has continued, I have been amused to note that a number of significant reasons to endorse the case for Brexit have failed to receive anything other than a passing mention.

So to right that wrong, here we go:

  1. The day after the nation votes to leave the EU, we will inevitably see the beginning of a government cull since many of those cabinet members who supported the drive to keep us under the rule of Brussels will be forced out. Chief amongst these will be the PM, no loss there.                                                                                                            
  2. In addition to the above, as the nation begins to take control of its own affairs and regrow its backbone, the lies being peddled by the remain camp will be exposed for what they are, as will those who peddled them.                                                                                                                     
  3. Given that we will suddenly become responsible for our own affairs, our government will be forced to do the one thing that they are supposed to do, actively govern. As a consequence, many MP’s will be exposed as the inept, lazy, scrounging, self-serving media whores they actually are. The result of the two points above being that at the next election, the dead wood which sits in the House of Commons will hopefully, be gone.                                           
  4. UKIP will cease to exist and all of their MEP’s will be out of work, including Mr Farage. To many, this is a good thing but to me, it is a great thing. Because I suspect that come the next election, many UKIP MEP’s will end up in government and I’d rather the House of Commons be filled with people who are prepared to stand up for their country than anyone who fits my previous points. Therefore, we will finally end up with the government we need as opposed to the one we have ended up with.                                   
  5. Boris. Whatever you think of him, be it good or bad, you cannot deny that he has charisma and nor does he take any crap. I want those qualities in a leader, and that is surely where he is destined.            
  6. Once the dust has settled and we are standing firmly on our own two feet, we will once again be able to reclaim the traditionally British outlook on the rest of Europe. Not to be underestimated.

Brexit. You know it makes sense. So please make sure that you are registered to vote and when the day comes, get out there and vote LEAVE!

Why tax is key to the case for Brexit.

As the inevitable mud slinging and bullshit battle gathers pace ahead of the European referendum on June 23rd, there is one issue I have found increasingly irritating.

My growing annoyance was given further momentum in the wake of the budget and the subsequent, and wholly justified, furore about the Tories plans to mess about with the Personal Independence Payment.

It is, quite simply, the issue of taxation. Not the fact that numerous corporations are somehow allowed to avoid paying it nor the fact that we as individuals have no choice but to pay it, but the way that we, as the public, perceive it. For the reality is that when it comes to the subject of tax, the majority of us are idiots because we fail to grasp, and keep a very firm grip on, one simple fact.

When the press and the government talk about taxpayers, they are talking about us. You and me. Therefore when they talk about taxpayers money, what they are actually talking about is YOUR money, OUR money, MY money.

So the next time you read about the £20,000.000,000 we hand to the EU every year, take a second to think about how much of that is actually yours. Picked from your pocket via income tax, VAT or any of the myriad ways the government have developed to remove your hard earned from your pocket. Then think about where that money could, and should, be better spent.

If you are anything like me, the list will be long and it will be local because I don’t want my taxes propping up the Greek economy or wasted on bizarre projects like ‘Donkeypedia’ (Google it!) I want them spent where they will make a difference to me and the people I care about. That’s why I will be voting to leave on June 23rd. Well, that and security, sovereignty, etc, etc.

However, if you are still in any doubt as to where your own vote might go, if there is a more graphic illustration of the need to leave than the current situation regarding the 5% VAT paid on sanitary products, I can’t think what it is.

The fact that our government has only been allowed to even talk about scrapping this ridiculous tax after a long and protracted spell of grovelling at the feet of the European Parliament is a shame on this once proud nation.

Do I really need to say any more?
