The EU: some thoughts and why we need Ref 2

  1. Too much false information and lies were presented before the first referendum. (e.g. £350m a week to fund the NHS). In a court of law any conviction based on false information would  lead to the conviction being regarded as unsafe resulting in a re-trial.

  2. Probability of illicit use of personal data during the campaign by Cambridge Analytical/Russia etc.  http://www.netimperative.com/2018/04/facebook-on-trial-we-made-mistakes-on-brexit-and-trump-campaigns/   https://www.facebook.com/theneweuropean/videos/1486687361443030/

  3. Probable gross illegal overspending of campaign funds by Leave campaign. http://metro.co.uk/2018/03/25/brexit-vote-leave-campaign-totally-illegal-whistleblower-claims-7414779/.

  4. To leave EU is a major constitutional change and should require at least a 60% majority before being put into effect, not a 52:48 split. Even golf clubs require a 60% change before constitutional changes are made. The EU is far more important than golf club issues.Remember the other referendum in the 1975? The country voted by a huge majority to stay in. That’s what I call, ‘The will of the people’.

  5. There are so many issues associated with Brexit that a simple yes/no question is completely trite. We need to know what the details are of any proposed deal are and we must have the option of staying in the EU.

  6. We’re loosing control. Currently we can effect /change the regulations concerning the world’s biggest single market. By leaving it we’d have no control.It is widely believed that EU overrules the UK in a vast number of occasions but the facts speak otherwise. While the UK has voted FOR over 2000 EU laws, the EU has only overruled British desires 55 times. Ref: https://fullfact.org/europe/how-often-does-eu-overrule-british-ministers/EuroMyths

  7. The Leave campaign promised that there would be enormous opportunities by leaving the EU. So far I haven’t heard of a single one. Indeed the only ‘opportunities’ I’ve heard about are deals with the USA which would require us to import chlorinated chicken, and hormone treated meat from Australia. India and China are both more interested in trade with the EU than with the UK. In the negotiating room, the UK is small fry compared to the EU.

  8. Leavers don’t want a second referendum. If they were interested in democracy they’d support it. Farage himself said a 52:48 split would be unfinished business.


  9. There’s no better deal than the single market https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/apr/22/koji-tsuruoka-japan-ambassador-britain-brexit-single-market?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Facebook
