I AM at a loss to understand the contradictory mindset of those UK citizens who presumably believe in the democratic system we all enjoy in Britain, yet at the same time are perfectly willing to be told what to do by that unelected, gaggle of bureaucrats who lord it in Brussels.

Let’s be clear, the EU, when Britain joined purely as a trade partner, was a wonderful idea, beneficial to all.

But it is no longer that simple.

It has morphed into the overbearing all-powerful giant that now desires to determine every aspect of UK existence.

It is a fact Britain pays more in than it gets out, why should that be acceptable either?

The very idea of remaining and changing the EU from inside is utter dreamlike nonsense, the leaders are not open to any suggestion of change, which is clearly evident by their pompous, arrogant attitudes.
