WE NOW HOLDWHIP HAN­DLE OVER EU

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I do not see the need for any leave plan! All we need is to trig­ger leave now and re­vert to be­ing a truly in­de­pen­dent state with no at­tach­ments to the un­demo­cratic EU com­mis­sion.

There are too many peo­ple ad­vo­cat­ing half­way houses (May in­cluded) com­par­ing their aims with Switzer­land or Nor­way or other sim­i­lar na­tions.

Stop the money we are pay­ing to Brus­sels, it is only a waste, and start re­plac­ing its grants with the same money in­stead to our own peo­ple.

Start im­ple­ment­ing the points sys­tem (Aus­tralian style) with peo­ple we wish to work here be­ing is­sued with em­ploy­ment per­mits.

The EU can not get us to move fast enough for them, so this plan can only ap­peal to them. When Cameron an­nounced the Ref­er­en­dum he said our choice would be to re­main or leave the EU al­to­gether.

That is ex­actly what we voted for and too many peo­ple try to ig­nore the al­to­gether bit! If the EU wants to be dif­fi­cult, we can be also. Time to re­mem­ber it is now we who hold the whip han­dle. The EU’s day is over as far as we are con­cerned. We want to con­tinue free trade with­out tar­iffs but with­out po­lit­i­cal strings at­tached ei­ther. If it ac­cepts our terms we can con­tinue as be­fore. Gov­ern­ments have no proper place in trad­ing.

Dis­putes or agree­ments we make should now be with in­di­vid­ual gov­ern­ments whether part of the EU or not. We in­tend to work with Europe on this ba­sis in con­tin­ued friend­ship with in­di­vid­ual coun­tries in it, but never again with the hated EU Com­mis­sion!

I hope I have made my case clear enough. I am not go­ing to sign up to any other plan, as I sus­pect it could be one of those half­way houses we do not want.
