There is a carefully considered and detailed strategy that will enable the United Kingdom to become independent again, beginning with an announcement of our intention to leave the European Union under the terms of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
The comprehensive exit plan recognises the thousands of conventions, agreements and legal frameworks that need to be negotiated and put in place by a newly independent UK to protect this country’s commercial and trading interests. The plan fully addresses the concerns of the UK business community that worries about the implications of departure from the EU. It ensures that through negotiated agreements companies based in the UK will continue to do business with our European neighbours and the rest of the world as they do today.
As a result of this change the UK will govern itself democratically and be properly accountable to the UK’s voters. It will no longer be governed by unelected and unaccountable people from EU member states. The billions of pounds the UK will save every year can be used to reduce our national debt, enhance our infrastructure and improve services for the vulnerable in our society.
Independence will mean in future we can speak confidently with the rest of the world using our own voice, make agreements and treaties on terms favourable to the UK and cooperate with nations around the world on matters of shared interest.
