"The UK currently has very little influence in the EU. It’s incredibly difficult to make changes, and we’re consistently outvoted in the EU Parliament. Indeed, the UK has not managed to block a single proposal from the Commission passing through the Council of Ministers (despite trying 55 times)”
“What’s more, it would give Britain back control of its own laws, which would ensure that our national parliament remains a genuine, legitimate and democratic force. The UK is one of the world’s oldest democracies, with a robust and mature legal system. Consequently, we believe that we should be free to have the final say over any laws that are implemented in our country.”(1)
THE CASE FOR A #FREEBRITAIN
"In my opinion, lobby work is not always a bad thing but an essential part of the democratic process, as long as it is transparent, balanced and inclusive. In the European Union it isn't transparent; we see huge corporations hiding behind the European Union anti transparency laws that allow them to heavily influence proceedings. I believe in a fully transparent democracy, where we know who has been influenced and by whom. While we're in the European Union we simply won't get that."
