The United Kingdom European Union membership referendum, also known as the EU referendum within the United Kingdom, is a referendum that is scheduled to take place in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar on the 23rd of June, 2016. Scottish MEP from UKIP David Coburn, explains the reasons that Britain should leave the EU:
“Britain never wanted to be part of the EU in the first place. It is very different from the way we do things. Its a very state orientated thing. We prefer freedom of the individual – restriction on the freedom of the individual, political correctness, when you limit speech about what you can say, [barring] something that might offend someone; we are very much orientated to a wide business. We want to look at the rest of the world. We want be trading with the Far East, China. The EU does not suit us; we are tired of this dying economy with a collapsing Euro. Countries like Greece, Spain, and Portugal are going bust. We do not want to be part of this.
In addition, it is an enormous waste of money. We pour enormous fund of money into a bottomless pit, what’s going in the countries that’ve just joined the EU. I do not understand why we are paying for the infrastructure of other countries. None of it makes a lot of sense. However, the most important thing of it – it is not democratic. The Commission make all the decisions, they comprise of every sort of useless politician, who destroys their own countries, and they come to EU as to a retirement home, and they then decide to destroy the rest of Europe from the European parliament and the European commission. It’s a horrible undemocratic bureaucracy, in many ways it is very authoritarian.”
