Union’s bureaucracy is despotism in disguise

The EU referendum is not about money and it is not about immigration — it is about power. The unaccountable bureaucratic behemoth which is the EU is influencing all of us and we can’t influence it back.

The claim by the Remainers that we should cling on in the forlorn hope that we can influence it is laughable: clearly no one can.

It is rapidly turning into a weird new form of despotism without a figurehead and we should cut it loose before it gets dangerous.

At the moment, it is too big to succeed, but when this dawns on its walnut-sized brain it will become too big to fail — and we will then have the mother of all calamities on our hands.
