Sam no one is getting rattled but I notice that you have failed to actually respond to my points.

Re immigration you used the term "pulling up the drawbridge" and then raised this issue about causing gaps in the labour market.

No one is arguing that governments (and by association Parliament) have not been complicit in the ceding of power and sovereignty to Brussels - that does not make it any more justified. A referendum was promised on the far reaching changes brought in for the EU constitution - this was cancelled when they re branded it to the Lisbon Treaty. In other countries, they simply had another referendum or just ignored the popular vote.

It isn't a conspiracy - it's a fact. The Government, a vast bloc of corporate wealth and the unions are all backing the remain campaign and using the same arguments against Brexit that were used in favour of joining the euro. The exact same thing would happen on a future referendum on any new treaty. The same myths would be popularised and the vested interests at the heart of the European project would peddle them.

The issue and extent to which we are involved in EU projects completely blows apart the argument that we have more power inside the EU. We cannot as one member state expect to direct European policy when the rest of Europe is moving towards closer integration.

The EU is not static, it evolves year by year and they will not tolerate Britain being half-heartedly in. We are having a referendum just on our membership of the EU as it is today but also on what the EU looks like and the nature of our relationship for another generation or more.
