Wrong then, wrong now!

Have your say

We’ve had to put up with an endless scaremongering campaign from the Cameron-led big business, big banks, Labour Party axis (strange bedfellows indeed).

Telling us how Armageddon will befall, and we will all be plunged into economic chaos.

A third world war will engulf us if we have the temerity to take back control of our own country and vote to leave the EU on June 23.

This group of big banks, international finance houses and career politicians – of all political stripes – is preaching doom and gloom if we dare to vote to take back control of our own affairs.

Roughly translated, we are being threatened that if we opt for democracy we will be punished.

We are entitled to ask why they so collectively hate democracy.

There is a common denominator here among these high-profile Remain supporters who are assaulting our collective common sense.

Almost all receive funding from the EU; all prosper by being in the EU.

If we examine further we see other similarities in their profile.

The OECD, the IMF, the IFS, Goldman Sachs, the British Treasury et al, all predicted that if we didn’t join the ERM (a dummy run for joining the euro) it would be a disaster for our economy.

Well, we did join the ERM and it was a big disaster.

House repossessions in the thousands when interest rates shot to 15%, business collapses, job losses in the tens of thousands.

In short, total misery for thousands.

We left the ERM and it led to the longest sustained period of growth in our history.

Then we had the same people telling us that if we didn’t join the euro we faced economic ruin.

You all know the “wisdom” of that advice, don’t you?

In short, they were all wrong then; they are all wrong now.

Who would take advice from a collection of vested interests who have a consistent track record of failure in economic predictions?

I urge readers to trust their instincts and vote to regain our freedom.
