YOUR LETTER: Consider whether this country would be better off outside the EU

The EU referendum is to be held in June, so let battle commence or, for many people, let the boredom begin as a barrage of propaganda drops through our letterboxes.

The local branch of UKIP will make its own small contribution to the campaign but, of course, this is a referendum, not an election.

We are not asking you to vote for us but to consider whether this country would be better off outside the EU.

We in UKIP have campaigned to leave the EU from day one, but let’s have a look at some of those advising the electorate to vote to remain in the EU.

They don’t come much bigger than the USA. Unfortunately, the last time we took their advice, we joined them in the invasion of Iraq and the world has become a much more unstable place ever since.

Continuing on the global front, Australia are also keen for Britain to stay in the EU.

The Aussies, however, thrive on this country’s decline, with a steady influx of our young professionals, especially doctors who are fed up with working conditions in the NHS.

Closer to home, Goldman Sachs, a big funder of the “in” campaign, fudged the figures so that Greece could join the Euro with all the subsequent misery that has brought to the Greek people.

The undecided may find the answer on our doorstep. A stroll round the streets of Spalding and a close study of the local press, of which the Spalding Guardian is an excellent example, tells us a lot about what the EU does for us, or, more correctly, to us.

I don’t have to spell it out and, at the end of the day, I expect common sense to prevail and people will take this chance of a lifetime to escape from a bankrupt, undemocratic institution called the EU.
