Britain: Run from the EU. Run Now. Run Fast. Don't Look Back

Britain fought long hot wars against Napoleon, the Kaiser, and Hitler--and one cold one against the Soviets--to keep any hostile power from controlling the Low Countries and posing a threat to Britain. Yet Britain has to debate whether to leave the Brussels-based European Union?

The EU is just doing what tyrants wanted to do to Britain in the past!

[The extension of EU authority and a centralisation in Brussels] is unstoppable, and it is irreversible – since it can only be repealed by the EU itself. Ask how much EU legislation the Commission has actually taken back under its various programmes for streamlining bureaucracy. The answer is none. That is why EU law is likened to a ratchet, clicking only forwards. We are seeing a slow and invisible process of legal colonisation, as the EU infiltrates just about every area of public policy. Then – and this is the key point – the EU acquires supremacy in any field that it touches; because it is one of the planks of Britain’s membership, agreed in 1972, that any question involving the EU must go to Luxembourg, to be adjudicated by the European Court of Justice.

Tip to Instapundit.

The upcoming referendum is your last chance, people of Britain.

Or do you really think that you uniquely can maneuver within the EU bureaucracy and have your wishes granted? Or even seriously considered?

If you don't vote to get out now (and maybe not even then) when you have the chance, you will be strangled. Only the rate is an issue for Brussels.

Because I think the EU is also bad for America, I'd prefer the EU itself be killed off, but I'll settle for Britain escaping the Soviet Union Lite that just represents another continental threat to Britain's liberty.

June 23, 2016 could be your finest hour.
