Here is what the late Tony Benn said at the last UK Referendum on Europe:

"I can think of no body outside the Kremlin that has such power without a shred of accountability,"

He warned that Britain was signing up for something that was undemocratic and run in the interest of elites.

No wonder Jom is all for "Remain".

Our ancestors shed oceans of blood to uphold and defend this country's right to govern itself, pass its own laws, raise its own taxes and most pertinently get rid of politicians when they abuse our trust. Why on earth should we now want to belong to a dysfunctional club that denies us these rights a club with an imploding economy, pursuing a frankly mad policy of open borders which, if not checked, will lead to violence between the ugly left and ugly Right across Europe?

53 years we have been in this "Club" that fears free trade with the rest of the world and fears competition it says that if we stay we stand a better chance of forging deals with the world - Perhaps someone can explain therefore why in those 53 years the EU has failed to negotiate any trade deal with:

America;
China;
India;
Brazil;
Japan.

We could negotiate our own deals with any or all of those countries long before the EU could.

Vote LEAVE and let's get out and join the world.
