Time for Brexit after wasting of oil money

June 1975 was a missed opportunity for the UK: in the referendum, a majority voted to stay in the European Community, while our first oil was produced from the North Sea.

Since 1973, Britain has paid £380bn into EU coffers. Total tax receipts from oil and gas production since 1975 have exceeded £330bn.

So, instead of investing in an oil fund for future generations, we have sent all our oil money to the corrupt, unelected regime in Belgium.

The anti-democratic origin of the Brussels superstate was revealed in a recent Daily Telegraph article, "The European Union always was a CIA project, as Brexiteers discover", by international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard.

When membership is granted to key US ally Turkey and to Albania, a further 82 million people will be free to come and live in the EU.

On June 23, we should head for the exit.
