European Union

Withdrawal from the European Union would mean that only MPs at Westminster, elected by the British electorate could make laws for Britain. If they made laws we did not agree with we could dismiss them in an election.

We would save billions of pounds which at present goes to the EU, an organisation so corrupt that even its own auditors have refused to sign off on its accounts for the past 14 years!

We would regain control of immigration into this country as we would no longer have to automatically allow entry to all EU nationals.

We should start by repealing the 1972 European Communities Act followed by repealing all subsequent acts binding the UK into the EU, an organisation nobody in this country has been allowed to vote on.

Why is this idea important?

Cost/benefit analysis of EU membership urgently needed

As shown by successive polls, there is little enthusiasm for our membership of the EU. We are fed up with over-regulation, loss of all democracy and the nation's sovereignty, mass immigration, abuse of human rights and social benefits – but we are fed up most of all by the three main parties' refusal to discuss the EU, or to justify why they insist on locking us into a restrictive bureaucratic regime which costs us dearly and delivers absolutely no benefit.

The £87 million cut to the counter-terrorism budget looks totally stupid, since it repreesents less than two days' contribution to the EU (£90 million) The same consideration applies to other cuts which would be unneccessary if we were not obliged to pay huge sums to Brussels.

Unless the politicians commission an independent cost/benefit analysis and somehow make a convincing case in terms of jobs, industry, corporate activity, trade, defence procurement, immigration, the CAP and CFP, subjection to EU law etc, etc, and demonstrate that there are benefits commensurate with the outgoing, then the law we should be repealing is the European Communities Act 1972

Leave the EU – that should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation

Leaving the EU should stop most of the daft, expensive legislation which this site was set up to do. Most of the ideas proposed on this site would be impossible to repeal because the are binding on our government. Euro diktat has precedence over UK law in many cases.

Most of our legislation is now directed from Brussels. The government you elect here in the UK can rarely do anything about laws, regulations and bureacracy from the EU. Most of these things have been created after lobbying by special interest groups or big business. They have the deep pockets to employ specialist PR agents who – at best – wine and dine the EU bureacrats.

Even where the legislations sounds to be positive, it is usually at enormous cost.

Every year, thousands of new rules and regulations are published producing a monumental nuisance for almost every organisation in the country.

Some we know are EU-inspired, but other laws are less well known as EU in origin. In fact most of our legislation comes from over the water.  But the majority of EU laws and regulations are expensive to implement and monitor, and ineffective in not producing the intended effect; some are harmful, and of course some actually useful.
