You don’t understand

Have your say

Those who absurdly claim that the EU has ‘prevented war’ since the end of World War Two seem not to understand that:

a. Evidence of true democracies going to war with one another is historically notable by its absence.

b. The EU (formerly the Common Market) did not even exist until March 1957.

c. Even now the EU has no defence role- have these people not heard of NATO?

So there’s really no ‘war’ reason to stay in the EU. UKIP is the only UK political party to understand the real situation. And it’s also the only one that insists on the UK retaining sufficient armed forces and weaponry to be able to defend itself.
