Brexit: Why the United Kingdom should “Vote Leave” | IN 60 SECONDS


The most important issue facing the British
electorate is their own self-government. Under the European Union, more and more power has
flowed to Brussels. The British Parliament is less and less important in setting British
domestic policy. Parliament can’t reverse decisions that are made in Brussels by bureaucrats
and diplomats, and people all over the European Union have given this issue the name “democratic
deficit.” I’ve always thought that the economic issues were secondary for the British,
indeed, for everybody in the Europe. Nobody is going to argue with a continent-wide free
trade zone, but honestly, the founders of the European Union had something very different
in mind. It’s fundamental to the European Union itself that the people shouldn’t be
allowed to have too much say over these decisions. So I would say to the Brits: Get out now because
this may be your only chance. If you don’t take it, you’re going to become a county
in a larger Europe.
