It is important that the Leave campaign stays focused on the big issues that matter. These are
1. We get our money back, bringing both the trade and current account deficits down by a fifth
2. We gain control of our borders.
3. We gain control of our own laws.
4. The UK regains places on the main world bodies it has lost to the EU, and becomes more influential in the world.
5. Our trade is not at risk, and we will be able to negotiate free trade deals where we wish.
The negative and unpleasant Stay in campaign wishes us instead to talk about
1. The Norwegian way – as if the UK had to pay loads of money to the rest of the EU once out for the right to buy all their exports!
2. Who leads the Leave campaign – to cover up for the poor media start of their campaign. We do not need a single leader, but a range of faces and voices.
3. Which senior figures sign up for the Stay in campaign – usually people who were wrong on the European Exchange Rate Mechanism and wrong on the Euro in the past.
We need to brush these nonsenses aside and concentrate on the big picture. The style of the Stay in campaign shows they have no belief in the structure and policies of the Euro driven EU, and wish to talk about anything apart from the centralising direction of their chosen international body. You rarely hear them saying anything positive about the Euro, about common borders, about political union, about business regulation and all other main features of the organisation they wish us to remain in.
