Remain outlook is social chaos

Only a few people really know how good the UK will be if we leave the EU.

However, we do know what it will be like if we remain and this makes the convincing argument for leaving.

Should the referendum yield a ‘remain’ majority the door will instantly be locked behind us.

All the items of legislation which have been temporarily shelved will come into force.

This legislation dictates something of what we can eat and drink, the appliances we can use and the type and age of cars we can drive on the road, to name but a few.

The EU with many of its ideals now obsolete and out of step with the modern world, will be able to set our taxes, make all our laws, and tinker with our pensions and mortgages but there will be far graver consequences if we remain.

Many countries, in the interests of safety and survival have already reintroduced border controls.

Freedom of movement is no longer possible or sensible and threatens the safety and security of all European countries including the UK.

There is a growing desire in the key countries of Europe to leave the EU because it has ceased to function in a coherent and positive way.

The EU gives ease of travel to terrorists and criminals.

Freedom of movement and EU policy also allow unsustainable numbers of migrants to settle in countries which simply do not have the room, infrastructure and resources to cope with them.

Our NHS hospitals and health services are already at breaking point. Housing shortages are already beyond critical.

Our schools are under extreme pressure to cope with ever increasing numbers placed at all stages of our education system.

Yes, there will most likely be more low paid jobs on offer if we ‘remain’ but a more than ample supply of cheap labour to fill them.

The ‘remain’ outlook is social chaos, a huge drop in living standards and the law and order we all take for granted to secure our way of life under increasing strain.
