One Reason For Leaving The EU - From A Conservative!

From Jonathan Isaby on Conservative Home.

"I have visited the European Parliament in Brussels on five or six occasions over the last decade, and each time I have returned to Britain equally, if not more, eurosceptic than before I went - and this time was no exception. Despite physically being there, it feels such a remote institution, especially when you gaze down at the seats in the Parliament chamber and recall that each MEP is representing literally millions of people - of whom so very few have ever been in touch with them, let alone got to meet them face to face.

That said, for as long as we remain members of the European Union, the institutions in Brussels cannot be ignored, since - as the regular refrain of us fervent eurosceptics goes - the majority of laws and regulations governing so many aspects of our lives do in fact originate there, whether we like it or not."

Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings...............
