YOUR LETTERS: UK can stand up for itself

With only a week to go before the European referendum, we are seeing more scare tactics and distortions by the remain camp, with some very personal attacks on Brexit campaigners.

It is pleasing to note that our MP, John Hayes, has maintained a professional stand in fighting for this country in his belief that we will be better off in voting to leave; and has not resorted to any personal attacks.

The remain group keep arguing about what may happen if we vote to leave on June 23.

If one is to believe the likely impact of voting to leave the EU, then the world would surely end on June 24.

What will happen, however, if we vote to stay? With an ever-expanding EU, who knows what further central legislation will have to be imposed on its member states.

In fact, Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, has said that he is in favour of reinforcing a “banking union”, presumably this means an EU central bank controlling and running the finances of all EU members.

The problem we have is that we are not able to control what happens in the EU, whereas, if we vote to leave, we can stand up for ourselves.

If our economy is so strong that leaving the EU will damage or destroy the wider European economy, surely it stands to reason that we will be able to stand up and prosper on our own.

Like Mr Hayes, I believe that the UK will be better off as a trading nation with Europe and the rest of the world, rather than being controlled and dictated to by the four key institutions that run the EU – the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European Council and the Court of Justice.

Take the initiative and vote to leave on June 23 for all or our futures.
