On Thursday the 23/6/2016 the people of the United Kingdom will vote on a momentous decision whether or not to stay in the European Union.
Politicians are debating over the economic merits over whether or not the UK would be better off in or out of the EU. However as far as I am concerned the key issue in the referendum is national democracy . The right of individual countries to decide its own policies and future.
Increasingly the EU is becoming a technocratic dictatorship, with the EU commission overiding the elected decisions of national parliaments. For instance look at the situation in Greece a country which lost its national independence long ago. Its budgets is in reality set by the EU commission. All EU member states budgets must be approved by the EU commission. Countries are not allowed to have budget deficits.
Nor does the EU any longer protect workers rights. The Delores social chapter is very much a thing of the past. Nowadays the EU promotes flexicor flexible labour contracts. The ‘socialist’ governments in France and Greece have passed anti trade union laws.
As well as this the EU stated that all utilities must be open to compulsory competitive tendering. In other words the EU encourages privatization of utilities.
In conclusion the EU is hostile to national demcocracy and the sovereignty of national parliaments. So as a tribute to all the people who have took part in the fight for British national democracy such as the chartists. I say vote for the UK to leave the EU on the 23/6/2016 to defend national democracy.
God bless you all.
