I believe in Britain. I believe that we are good enough to be a self- governing, independent nation outside of the European Union, controlling our own borders and negotiating our own trade deals.

Our pro-EU political class don’t think we are good enough to make our own laws, or run our own country. They don’t believe we should be able to act in our own national interest. Rather than the UK negotiating our own trade deals with the interests of this country front and centre, the pro-EU establishment would rather that the EU do it on our behalf.

It’s a very good thing that in 1940 we had politicians with genuine patriotic courage. This time it is not the politicians that can save this country but the people, if they have the self-confidence and belief in Britain.

The pro-EU campaigns have already spent a large sum of money delivering 10 million leaflets to households across the country. They too have clearly caught the pessimistic bug. Their whole campaign is based on saying that without the EU – and of course they always seek to mislead people by calling it “Europe” – we would not be able to trade. That we would suffer and we would diminish the nation.

They are using a series of threats to make you think that you’re not good enough and we’re not good enough to survive on our own. They clearly do not believe in our country’s ability to be an independent, self-governing nation. Well, I jolly well do.

Our campaign to Leave the EU is based on fact. It costs £55m every single day to be a member of this European Union. Our Parliament is no longer sovereign and a majority of our laws are made for us by the European Union. Our own Supreme Court can be overruled by a court in Luxembourg, staffed by people who aren’t even proper judges. Immigration into the UK is now running at record levels due to open borders we now share with the entire European Union. Our political class have talked about controlling migration and bringing down numbers, but the truth is that they have handed control of our borders to the EU and we now cannot control who comes to Britain, nor how many.

We also have the ridiculous notion from the Remain side that EU membership is required for trade. Just look around the world. Global trade deals are made, co-operation between countries goes on all the time, with countries working in a mutually beneficial way, without the need for full political union. The notion that we would need to be in the EU to trade with other European countries is self-evidently untrue.

All I’m really asking is for the UK once again to become a self-governing, independent country. A country that makes its own laws, negotiates its own trade deals, is free to put its own national interest first and crucially controls its own borders. If we vote to remain in this Union we will be helpless to stop the spread of massive new rafts of EU legislation that hold back our economic potential and makes life hard for those in this country who run small businesses.

If we remain in this Union we will be even more vulnerable to terrorism and to the kinds of scenes that we saw in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. The logical, practical and safe thing to do is to cut our ties with a failing political union and take back control of our lives. All it needs to defeat the big banks, the vested interests of the big businesses and our craven politicians, is for you to believe in Britain and vote to leave this European Union come the referendum.

Do you think we’re good enough?
