A central reason why the UK should vote to leave the EU

One of the central reasons why UK voters should vote to leave the EU...

Consider this. The European hierarchy might seek to pursue a course that runs contrary to British interests.
  • Britain could stand against it in the Council of Europe
  • It could oppose it at the European Commission level
  • At a European Council meeting Britain could vote against it
  • Every British MEP could vote against it in the European Parliament

But if we are in the minority, the decision taken becomes binding. This is a consequence of supranational governance. The only way the UK's interests can be preserved is to negotiate agreements and co-operate on an intergovernmental basis. That requires us to leave the EU.
