From yesterday’s London Evening Standard…
The battle facing the UK is over who should run Britain. The British people and their elected representatives, or unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats overseas over whom we have no control. It is about sovereignty.
Speaking with our own voice, representing our own interests and shaping the rules that are made in the global committees and forums, would make the UK far more influential than it is today.
Being stuck in the EU means that today we merely implement what has been decided at a global level and handed down to the EU for its member states to follow. We don’t shape the rules and we don’t get to act in our own interests. It is high time we took back the power to do so.
