Forget the scaremongering from Major and Blair and vote to depart Europe's meddling institution

Doesn't it show the sheer desperation of the Remain campaign that they resort to the John Major and Tony Blair show? One whose political career ended in scandal and another whose whole term in office is remembered as a scandal. Does Tony evoke feelings of trust in the British population at large?

Imagine the mess Britain would be in if they were in the Eurozone. And stretch your imagination even further: try to envisage what the result would be if Britain was outside the EU and was being asked to vote on June 23 on whether to join the EU, or not.

What madman would want to join this meddling institution that is fragmenting and cannot even control its own borders?

So, I urge the Northern Ireland public to forget the scaremongering, to be brave and to grasp this big opportunity to leave the EU. We may not get another chance.

Do the sums: Britain pays far more into the EU than it gets back and it will get worse as more countries join.

Already, the EU has plans to introduce VAT on food, with the proceeds going straight into their coffers, of course.

And pay no attention to the pleading of David Cameron. After all, this is the man who said he was going to bring down the levels of immigration.

Enough said.
