STRAIGHT TALKING I won’t let Remain-iacs fear tactics frighten me
FROM UKIP’S DEPUTY LEADER
ANOTHER week has passed as we march closer to our muchawaited referendum on our membership of the European Union... and you can’t escape the desperate fear campaign of those wanting you to vote in favour of remaining in the EU.
Two weeks ago, I addressed the very serious issue of what it would mean for our security if we voted to stay in.
This came about from the outrageous suggestion that our national security would be under threat without the backing of Brussels.
If you believe the EU fanatics, then Vladimir Putin would be sending his tanks onto our streets quicker than you can say Brexit. under a worst case scenario triggered by a jilted Government.
The Institute of Economic Affairs – who I believe are far more worthy of trust than a government hell-bent on making sure this referendum isn’t a fair fight – have said that the EU, with its outdated Common Agricultural Policy, adds 17% onto our food bills.
After Brexit, we would be free to buy food from around the world without facing punitive tariffs. poor people in countries poor.
It is worth adding that the UK is the biggest import market for t-shirts coming into the EU, yet we are powerless to negotiate our own trade deals to suit us.
As you can see, this fear campaign is becoming quite ridiculous.
Even SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, who is busy heading the ‘Remain’ side in Scotland, has hit back at these government tactics, calling the words of Cameron and Osborne ‘overblown’ while accusing the government of ‘insulting people’s intelligence’.
What Cameron, Osborne and everyone else campaigning for a ‘ Remain’ vote don’t seem to realise is that people like myself and others in UKIP have done our homework and studied the facts on the EU our entire political lives.
For every scary lie they can throw at us, we have three sound, reasoned responses to rebuke it. So bring it on.
Because this fear campaign doesn’t frighten me one bit. developing
