How about some Real Facts about EU?

❚ The UK is the fifth largest economy in the world, has the largest financial centre in the world (London), and is the fourth largest military power

❚ The UK is the rest of the EU’s (the EU-27’s) largest single export market, bigger than the USA and China

❚ Only 6% UK businesses trade with the EU

❚ Only around 13% of the UK economy is trade with the EU; most trading is within the UK – much less than other EU nations. But all 100% must impose EU laws

❚ The UK now trades more with Rest of the World than the EU: 56% to 44%; the EU’s share is dropping

❚ Switzerland exports over 4.5 times as much as the UK per head to the EU despite not being in the EU

❚ Non-EU European countries such as Norway do not pay for access to the EU Single Market as claimed, only fees for European programmes and voluntary aid contributions

❚ Net immigration to the UK averages around 250,000 a year, and in 2015 net immigration was 333,000 – larger than a city the size of Newcastle every year. The Government has underestimated immigration by 1.5 million people (2011-2015): equal to five Newcastles. The UK is on course to overtake Germany as the largest EU country in 30 years (2047)

❚ Over half of UK laws come from the EU - the House of Commons Library states 60%. The CBI estimates 70% business regulation is from EU, and the Government that half financial services laws are. EU regulations cost £33 billion a year; £600 million a week.

Now ask yourself - How scary is it really to Leave and vote for sovereignty?
