With little more than a week to go before the UK decides the fate of the EU, Britain’s most popular newspaper just weighed in, and it’s not good news for the EU unelected oligarchs and Mr. David Cameron.
Owned by Rupert Murdoch, the UK’s Sun newspaper “urges everyone to vote Leave. We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.”
The referendum is shaping up to be a vote on whether the UK wishes to be a sovereign, independent nation or a Brussels colony. It is also the UK’s way of saying a big F*** off to Germany’s Angela Merkel, who wields immense, Queen-like, power over all EU member states.
Unfortunately for Merkel, Juncker, and the other Brussels technocrats, Britain already has a Queen.
The Sun endorsement of the Leave campaign is below this FT Brexit poll tracker.
We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.
Throughout our 43-year membership of the European Union it has proved increasingly greedy, wasteful, bullying and breathtakingly incompetent in a crisis.
Next Thursday, at the ballot box, we can correct this huge and historic mistake.
It is our last chance. Because, be in no doubt, our future looks far bleaker if we stay in.
Outside the EU we can become richer, safer and free at long last to forge our own destiny — as America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other great democracies already do. And as we were the first to do centuries ago.
If we stay, Britain will be engulfed in a few short years by this relentlessly expanding German dominated federal state.
For all David Cameron’s witless assurances, our powers and values WILL be further eroded.
Staying in will be worse for immigration, worse for jobs, worse for wages and worse for our way of life.
Greece is bankrupt.
Italy is in danger of going the same way, with even more disastrous consequences.
In Spain, 45 per cent of those under 25 are out of work.
And numerous even poorer and worse-governed countries are now joining the EU.
To remain means being powerless to cut mass immigration which keeps wages low and puts catastrophic pressure on our schools, hospitals, roads and housing stock.
In every way, it is a bigger risk.
The Remain campaign, made up of the corporate establishment, arrogant europhiles and foreign banks, have set out to terrify us all about life outside the EU.
Their “Project Fear” strategy predicts mass unemployment, soaring interest rates and inflation, plummeting house prices, even world war.
The Treasury, Bank of England, the IMF and world leaders have all been wheeled out by Downing Street to add their grim warnings.
Nonsense! Years ago the same politicians and economists issued apocalyptic predictions about our fate if we didn’t join the euro.
Thank God we stopped that. The single currency’s stranglehold has since ruined the EU’s poorer nations and cast millions on the dole.
We are told we cannot be in the single market without accepting all the rules, free movement of people included.
If so, let’s leave it and, using our enormous clout as the world’s fifth biggest economy, strike great trade deals with the other 85 per cent of the world.
And pick and choose the best migrants from the whole world.
If we stay in the EU, as Cameron wants, we will finally give up any chance of controlling our population. Cameron admits it.
Vote Leave, and we will reassert our sovereignty — embracing a future as a self-governing, powerful nation envied by all.
We will re-establish the basic principle that we are governed by politicians we elect or eject every five years, not foreign bureaucrats.
The Sun has campaigned relentlessly against the ever-expanding superstate.
But the EU cannot reform.
Remain has conducted a deceitful campaign. It has been nasty, cynical, personally abusive and beneath the dignity of Britain.
Our country has a glorious history.
This is our chance to make Britain even greater, to recapture our democracy, to preserve the values and culture we are rightly proud of.
A VOTE FOR LEAVE IS A VOTE FOR A BETTER BRITAIN.
