It's not all about immigrants

The Government is passing the buck back to us, it's our decision, do we stay in or come out of Europe? We seem to be getting lots of information regarding the cost of staying in, £55 million a day, but very little information regarding what we get back, to justify this amount.

Having not totally made my mind up, I feel strongly that we are better off in than out. My concern is, would I be happy with this government, (or any other one), being in total control of everything to do with our country, my answer, NO.

If we vote to come out of Europe, while Cameron and co are in charge we will never get rid of them.

They are already altering the rules on party funding, and boundary changes, to try and ensure they continue to get elected and with nobody to answer to, our prospects are not good.

We have seen them running down the NHS, our steel industry and overseeing the demise of our coal mining, while bankers and hedge fund managers continue to be safeguarded and receive massive bonuses.

Holiday entitlements , reduced working hours and employees’ rights, have only been achieved by being in Europe, being out of Europe will lead us back to the Dickensian times, something that the millionaire MPs in government would love to achieve. It’s not all about asylum seekers and immigrants coming into the country.
