Bannermans top 10 EU myths - myth no 3 and 4
The EU has a positive impact on the British economy
Fishing, farming, postal services, and manufacturing have already been devastated by the membership.
It costs us billions of pounds in unnecessary red tape, aid contributions and inflated consumer prices and we will lose more in the future when other directives come into play.
the EU has brought peace to the European Continent
Even now the membership is only 27 nations out of the 47 but even so to say that the EU is the sole guarantor of peace is an extreme exaggeration.
It is NATO, not the EU that has actually kept the peace in Europe, together with parliamentary democracy, both of which are being undermined by the EU. It was the interference and dithering of the EU that helped trigger a major war in Yugoslavia and the decisive action of US/NATO forces that stopped the violence.
