Letter: Why Go Down With The EU Ship?

Hon Alderman and former Mayor of Guildford.

Mr Obama and a large number of respected international institutions have been urging us to stay in the EU.  From their point of view it is reasonable to urge us not to rock a very shaky European “ship”.

But they have totally overlooked our main problem of massive uncontrolled immigration. It is a serious and increasingly dangerous social cost which they do not have to bear.

They are also urging us to stay in a highly undemocratic incompetent organization with the touching faith that our 8 per cent vote and 3.6 per cent staff will some somehow carry weight with the other 27 members.

How naive can you be?

emails letterThey then claim that our economies will suffer as it will take years to negotiate new trade agreements, ignorant of the fact that trade flows are not affected while trade negotiations go on.

Further more since we have a massive trade deficit with Europe (it increased from £61 in 1995 to £61 billion in 2014) the EU would be quite stupid to start a discriminatory war – which their large car manufacturers would not allow.

As anyone who was worked closely with the EU will know, it is an incompetent organization, with poor quality staff chosen primarily to pursue their country’s interests; most British staff are quite out of their depth.

Only last week its German chairman for development stated colourfully that “most of their foreign aid went down the toilet”).

Sadly the EU is proving a failure. Why go down with the ship?

    The Alderman makes sense and I would add that, as far as I can remember, there has been a certain signature, an auditor’s, missing from the EU accounts for 18 years.

    For the financially astute that alone should be reason enough to say, “If your accounts haven’t been audited for 18 years – sorry not good enough. You can’t have any more of our money. Bye.

    Thank you Mr. Bridger – an excellent letter. I particularly like the point that it is in Mr. Obama’s interest and not ours for him to take the position that he does.

    The incredible desperation of David Cameron that we might just have the cheek to take back our laws, country, borders, etc., is amazing. The way that he is carefully co-ordinating nonsense from Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all is laughable.

    Who cares what Obama etc., thinks, who cares what the rest of the Establishment think, it is our country and we want it back.
