  • Hello, Britain.

  • This EU referendum has been made to look really rather confusing,

  • but it’s actually all quite simple.

  • Britain, as a part of the EU, is in a free trade area that spreads from Iceland to Turkey.

  • Free trade is great as it makes trade easier.

  • However, not all countries in this free trade area are EU members,

  • and no one is proposing we would ever leave the trade bloc if we exit the EU -

  • least of all Germany, who earns billions selling us their cars.

  • Britain voted to join the EEC back in 1973

  • when it looked like regional trade blocs were the future.

  • This was long before the internet or mass container shipping,

  • and the Soviet empire was in full swing.

  • Technologies have since made the idea of local trading unions

  • completely obsolete, as it is now as cheap and easy to do business anywhere in the world.

  • Britain’s future is way beyond the EU.

  • Remaining an EU member means we can’t negotiate favourable trade or business deals,

  • were stuck with whatever the unelected EU commissioners think is best.

  • In the past decade, our trade with the EU has fallen from 55 percent to 45,

  • and this idea that we must merge our political institutions for the sake of this shrinking minority of our commerce

  • is just frankly stupid.

  • But is Britain too small to compete?

  • Britain is the fifth largest economy in the world, has the fourth largest military budget,

  • is a founding member of NATO,

  • a permanent seat holder on the United Nations Security Council, the G8 and the G20,

  • has the world’s most widely spoken language,

  • the world’s best universities,

  • and has a cracking history of maritime trade and independence.

  • If Britain isn’t big enough to compete on the world stage, who the bloody hell is?

  • Those wanting Britain to remain in the EU are using uncertainty and doubt to spread fear.

  • They claim that each British household could lose as much as £3000 every year by leaving.

  • But even if we pretend this idiotic claim were true,

  • would £750 really be all it takes to purchase your democratic rights?

  • Is the ability to hire and fire our lawmakers, democratic freedoms fought for over hundreds of years,

  • now only worth two month’s rent for a studio apartment in Glasgow and a packet of Wotsits?

  • If 28 unelected British plutocrats tried to pull this crap,

  • I’m sure we’d tell them to bugger off, too.

  • However you vote, everything is going to change.

  • The EU Commission has made it quite clear that they are on the path

  • to closer financial, legal and border integration.

  • Staying on that bus will lead to us having to ditch the pound sterling, our entire common law judicial system and our borders

  • for the euro, bench trials and Schengen in due course.

  • The Union is of course desperate to maintain its control,

  • but I don’t think that a few measly threats mean we need to commit our future to this authoritarian regime.

  • Besides, we have been getting on wonderfully well trading, emigrating to and allying with other countries

  • without needing to give their government control over our laws.

  • So let’s use this one chance to wish the EU the very best,

  • be their trading partners, business colleagues, military allies and friends,

  • but let them know well govern ourselves from here on out,

  • thanks all the same.
