WHAT IS FAIR ABOUT OUR CUR­RENT SYS­TEM?

ANY ar­gu­ments the Re­main in the EU side, led by PM ‘Call me Dave’ Cameron, might have had have been dis­cred­ited, as if treat­ing us in the worst tra­di­tion of an Eton se­nior boy bul­ly­ing his ‘fag’, aka slave. In foot­ball par­lance, only some­one who can’t get the ball has to re­sort to bla­tant play­ing the man, or foul­ing.

The £9.3M tax funded pro­pa­ganda leaflet of lies, ex­pected of dic­ta­tors like Stalin, Mao and Hitler, is not in the demo­cratic tra­di­tion of equal spend­ing lim­its for all sides in UK Ref­er­en­dums and elec­tions.

If ‘we con­trol our bor­ders’ then how come – con­trary to the Con­ser­va­tive 2010 and 2015 Gen­eral Elec­tion Man­i­festos pledge to “re­duce im­mi­gra­tion to the tens of thou­sands” – the UK still has one mil­lion net im­mi­gra­tion ev­ery three years?

What’s fair about this un­sus­tain­able im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem set­ting higher hur­dles for English-speak­ing Com­mon­wealth im­mi­grants, com­pared with EU cit­i­zens, ver­sus hav­ing an Aus­tralian-type points­based sys­tem – il­le­gal un­der EU rules – to con­trol num­bers and set eq­ui­table stan­dards across the board?

Why, has the PM claimed that fol­low­ing a re­main vote he could re­store supremacy of UK law over EU law? Con­firmed by pro-EU for­mer Shadow At­tor­ney Gen­eral Do­minic Grieve MP to be il­le­gal.

Why, prior to the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion step­ping in, did PM Cameron at­tempt to con­vert his 2015 Gen­eral Elec­tion Man­i­festo pledge of an in/Out EU ref­er­en­dum into a Yes/ No ques­tion?

All this foul play, that the PM’s claimed non-deal could any­way yet be thrown out by MEPs, and ex-EU Jus­tice Com­mis­sioner Vi­viane Red­ing’s claim that 75% of the laws of all EU mem­ber states sprout from Brus­sels, should be enough to con­vince you to vote Leave on June 23.
