Why we would be better off out of this chaos

Over the last 20 years I have been promoting the very simple idea that our country would be doing itself, its people and the rest of the world a great favour by returning to self-governance.

And this is why.

We would be Better Off Out financially by simply not paying the £48million a day to the European Union. This would be money better spent at home with priorities set by our elected representatives, rather than returned in part with European conditions.

We would be Better Off Out financially minus the dead weight of regulation that makes the life of our businesspeople a misery.

From the small businesses – the economic lifeblood of our towns and villages – to the gleaming towers of the City, all are hidebound by EU regulations.

We would be Better Off Out politically.

We could regain our democracy and the liberty to hire and fire the politicians who make our laws.

Today, with about 75 per cent of our laws being made in Brussels, that is just impossible. Millions of Britons have fought for that freedom and the Express is joining that noble fight.

We would be Better Off Out as we would regain the self confidence as a nation. We would no longer have laws dictated to us by those who know us little and care about us less. We would no longer be ordered to give prisoners the vote by foreign judges.

We would once again be a nation that could hold its head high, govern ourselves and trade with the rest of the world.

By leaving the European Union we could ditch the failed ideas of the 20th century and embrace the 21st with hope and confidence.

We are a trading nation, ready to take our place in the competitive trading world.

This should not faze us, it should enthuse us. We have the ingenuity, the people and, if we had our freedom, we would have success.

I welcome the few isolated figures in the House of Commons and elsewhere, from the Conservatives and Labour who share this view.

But I must point out that only UKIP has steadfastly held the line which the Daily Express is now championing.

It will be a long hard fight.

But it will be won.
