Second fight for Britain

Whether we should be a member of the EU or not is a matter for the British people, not the establishment.

For some unaccountable reason, all leading heads of the main parties are pro-Europe, yet have not explained to the electorate why we should follow their lead and allow the unelected gurus in Brussels to rule and overrule British politicians.

What is important is that this referendum represents the second Battle for Britain, fought not over the English Channel with Spitfires and Hurricanes, but by the power of the vote and a pen and paper.

Proving that the pen can be as mighty as the sword if effectively applied, given an even field of play.

Mr Cameron can play politics in Europe, but we do no have an inkling of what changes to the Treaty he wants, so how will we know what to expect from his demands in changes from the EU?

This referendum has taken some 40-odd years to materialise, let’s make sure we do no lose our sovereignty or independence, and the right to be British, when casting our vote.
