The European Union is Evil

 

 

“We would be better off freed from the exactions, excessive contributions, toils, red tape and regulations of the European Union.”  Austin Mitchell
“It if this is the idea, the end of Britain as an independent European state…it means the end of a thousand years of history.” Hugh Gaitskell
“My view of the EU has always been not that I am hostile to foreigners but I am in favour of democracy. I think they are building an empire and want us to be part of that empire…” 
“Britain’s continuing membership of the Community would mean the end of Britain as a completely self-governing nation.” 
“When I saw how the European Union was developing, it was very obvious what they had in mind was not democratic…”  Tony Benn
“…Labour wants to see Europe safe and prosperous. But the European Economic Community, which does not even include the whole of Western Europe, was never devised to suit us, and our experience as a member of it has made it more difficult for us to deal with our economic and industrial problems…Moreover, by preventing us from buying food from the best sources of world supply, they would run counter to our plans to control prices and inflation…For all these reasons, British withdrawal from the Community is the right policy for Britain” 1983 Labour Party Manifesto
“Virtually every serious review of the costs and benefits of the EU show that Britain would be better off out of the organisation in most, if not all, respects but political elite in all political parties will simply not listen to the facts.  Those who believe that the European Union can be reformed from within are deluding themselves.  Its very nature demands that, ever more power must be conceded to the EU institutions and, consequently, that of the nations be reduced.  Britain would certainly be BETTER OFF OUT and the longer our country remains in, the more certain it is that we shall simply become a mere province in a “country called Europe” Lord Stoddart of Swindon
“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.”  
Ronald Reagan
