EUROPE: We need to be own boss

I am replying to Malcolm Robinson’s letter with the heading ‘Not enough information’, (News Post Leader, March 17). This was referring to whether or not we should stay in the EU.

Well, I will give you the facts.

British taxpayers are currently paying £55,000 just to be a member of a businessman’s elite club.

If we stay in we will at some point come under a one world government with a one world currency.

We have an elected government in this country, yet our laws are coming from Brussels.

Our royal family should be commended, especially our Queen for ruling this country. She made a vow when she came to the throne and has kept it.

I believe that our present government wants us to think that we won’t succeed if we come out of the EU, but there are other countries which work perfectly well on their own who have trade agreements. We just need to believe in ourselves.

We need to put our money where our mouth is and vote with our feet and come out of this stranglehold to be our own boss.

We need Britain to rule the waves again.
