As early as the 5th century B.C., Boris Johnson’s hero Pericles said this in a famous political speech,’“The reason why our system is called democratic politics is that the regime is in the hands of all citizens, rather than a small group of people. When dealing with private disputes, everyone is equal under the law.”
Our rights were taken away from us by the EU. We lost British Law because EU Law is now stronger. We lost the right of ordinary people to directly vote out the EU chiefs. We ordinary people cannot vote out Juncker, Verhofstadt, and Tusk and they can make laws without consulting Parliament.
But before we joined the EU, we could vote out British party leaders., answerable to no-one. Unless ordinary people have that direct power, we do not have democracy.
We have lost contol of our own affairs, for example, the EU makes our trade deals. Fixes our VAT. We want that control back.
72 countries in the world do not have democracy. So we are now on the same level as countries like People’s Republic of China, Saudi Arabia, Vatican City, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Cuba, and North Korea.
We have lost our liberty.
This is what Remoaners wanted to throw away for Britain.
