‘Stay in Europe’ drive is about business not citizens, I hope UK don’t fall for it

Don’t be fooled by the clamour to stay in Europe. Those who shout loudest are the multi-millionaires, billionaires, big business and multi-national corporations.
‘Stay in Europe’ drive is about business not citizens, I hope UK don’t fall for it

They won’t be paying for the United States of Europe military machine. The ordinary citizens of Europe will be taxed for ‘the privilege’ and you can bet your bottom dollar the crises in the hospitals, and homeless and vulnerable will continue regardless.

The ideal of a simple free-trade zone has been usurped by the geopolitical powerbrokers whose manoeuvring is leading all and sundry lemming-like into a militarised superstate which has demonstrated all too clearly that it is well short on democratic accountability and competence.

To believe that a US president, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the giant multinationals are thinking about the welfare of the citizens would be naive in the extreme, and to think that we have sacrificed our sovereignty, independence and natural resources for this does not bear thinking about.

I sincerely hope that the good people of the United Kingdom do not fall for it. They deserve better.
