Reclaim our sovereignty

I am writing this letter in disgust and bewilderment at the way David Cameron has begged unelected bureaucrats for changes to our treaty with the EU.

After all the running around, chasing world leaders, what he came back with was nothing.

We will still be paying benefits to foreigners, and child support for their children who are not in this country.

According to Andrew Marr recently, benefits will be phased in after only six months (and they will get 90% benefits), not four years as David Cameron quoted.

No wonder our country is struggling.

Hospitals, the NHS, housing, jobs and other services need money to keep going, while we send £350million per week to the EU.

Think what this could do for our services.

Now, of course, we are getting the scaremongering, saying we cannot survive without the EU.

We need to stand up and reclaim our sovereignty.

Our parents and grandparents fought two world wars to give us freedom and powers to run our own country.

We must all vote to get out of a Europe that is falling apart before it drags us down with it.

Oh, and by the way, I am a Tory.
