Restore National Sovereignty – The EU currently decides 75% of laws affecting Britain
That’s the figure from the EU Commission itself, a group of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats who have sole arbitrary power to propose the vast majority of laws that affect Britain.

We have no control over the number of people who come into Britain. They are all entitled to British taxpayer funded benefit payments, healthcare and education.

As an independent nation, Britain would be free to sign lucrative trade deals with Commonwealth countries and reclaim our seat on the World Trade Organisation.
