EU fail­ures need no ex­pla­na­tion

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

DEAR Ed­i­tor, The let­ter from Paul Richards of Best For Bri­tain dis­plays the typ­i­cal ar­ro­gance of un­re­con­structed Re­main­ers, in that he seems to be­lieve that the al­leged ben­e­fits of be­long­ing to the EU are self-ev­i­dent and do not need to be ex­plained.

For me the only thing about the Euro­pean Union that is self-ev­i­dent is that it is be­com­ing a fail­ure.

It is fail­ing its mem­bers eco­nom­i­cally, so­cially and po­lit­i­cally.

Its eco­nomic poli­cies have al­ready done sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to the prospects of sev­eral mem­bers, so­cially there is very lit­tle ev­i­dence that it is help­ing in­di­vid­ual mem­bers to stem the tide of mass, largely un­wanted, im­mi­gra­tion and po­lit­i­cally it is clearly do­ing noth­ing to move its gov­er­nance from dic­ta­tor­ship to democ­racy.

I am con­vinced that the EU is go­ing to fall apart with very bad con­se­quences for the con­ti­nent of Europe, so I am cer­tain that the best thing for our coun­try is to get as far away from it as pos­si­ble and as quickly as pos­si­ble.

There may be some short term dif­fi­cul­ties af­ter we leave but there is no doubt in my mind that in the long term Great Bri­tain will bet­ter off, not worse of, as a sov­er­eign in­de­pen­dent coun­try.
