A cru­sade for free­dom

Sunday Express - - Front Page -

ORE than 150,000 peo­ple have signed up to the Daily Ex­press cru­sade for Bri­tain to quit the Euro­pean Union. This news­pa­per has been del­uged with over­flow­ing mail­bags packed with our spe­cial cru­sade coupons call­ing on David Cameron’s Govern­ment to launch an or­derly with­drawal from the EU.

Sup­port hit the six-fig­ure mark within days of the his­toric cru­sade be­ing launched. The as­ton­ish­ing re­sponse is on course to be­come the fastest-grow­ing cam­paign in news­pa­per his­tory.

The colos­sal surge of sup­port, a clear sig­nal of pub­lic frus­tra­tion at politi­cians’ dither­ing, is a stark warn­ing to Brus­sels that Bri­tain has had enough of med­dling and an ever-grow­ing tax bur­den.

Tory MP Philip Davies, a mem­ber of the Bet­ter Off Out group of MPs, said: “This is an ab­so­lutely amaz­ing re­sponse. It re­veals the pent-up frus­tra­tion among the pub­lic that none of the main­stream po­lit­i­cal par­ties is speak­ing up for what it be­lieves in.”

UK In­de­pen­dence Party peer Lord Pearson said: “This is a huge level of sup­port from the great Bri­tish pub­lic to the great­est Bri­tish news­pa­per. The strength of feel­ing shown by Daily Ex­press read­ers re­flects the grow­ing sup­port across the coun­try for with­drawal.”

A sur­vey by poll­sters An­gus Reid showed that 48 per cent of vot­ers asked want Bri­tain freed from the yoke of Brus­sels while 59 per cent be­lieve EU mem­ber­ship has dam­aged the UK.

Sup­port among Daily Ex­press read­ers for with­drawal from the EU is over­whelm­ing, with 99 per cent of the tens of thou­sands of callers who rang this news­pa­per’s ex­clu­sive phone poll back­ing an exit. Reader Stephen Beat­tie, a 69-year-old re­tired elec­tri­cian from Le­ices­ter, said: “The Get Bri­tain Out cru­sade is the best news I have heard in a long time. I hope ev­ery­one gets be­hind the lead taken by the Daily Ex­press.”

Brian Goldie from Sten­house­muir wrote to us to ap­plaud our ground­break­ing cru­sade and spoke for the silent ma­jor­ity by call­ing time on in­ter­fer­ence from Brus­sels.

He said: “In a move that will send shock waves through the eu­ro­zone and hope­fully our own Par­lia­ment, the ma­jor­ity of Bri­tish peo­ple who took part in the poll have de­clared enough is enough and it is time we re­turned to the busi­ness of trad­ing with Europe in­stead of be­ing swal­lowed by this re­lent­lessly creep­ing abom­i­na­tion.

“While the face­less ones in Brus­sels over­see the catas­tro­phe that is the sin­gle cur­rency, we have to de­mand from our Govern­ment an an­swer to the ques­tion on ev­ery­one’s lips: ‘How far can we al­low this fis­cal mis­man­age­ment to go and how long can we con­tinue to bail out coun­tries in the cur­rency to which we do not sub­scribe?”’
