Toby Young with some Brexit facts

Watch the video, read the transcript and vote BREXIT
Here's an extract:

'The Remainers will tell you that Britain would struggle to survive outside the EU — that we'd become an irrelevance. They call the people who want to leave the EU 'little Englanders', as if there's something petty and small-minded about wanting Britain to become a sovereign state again. In their eyes, wanting to restore the right of self-determination to the British people is a bit… well, a bit common.

And this gets to the heart of the difference between their vision of Britain and ours. They see Britain as a small island off the coast of continental Europe that no longer has any place in the world as an independent nation state. We should abandon our delusions of grandeur and accept our diminished status.

We see Britain a little differently. Not just a small island, but the world's fifth largest economy and fourth largest military power.  One of only five countries with a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. Not the plaything of unelected officials in Brussels, but the birthplace of Parliamentary democracy.

If you believe that Britain is strong enough to stand on its own two feet again, free from the shackles of EU laws and regulations, then I urge you to vote Leave on 23 June.

The British people were fooled once in 1975. Don't let the Establishment fool you again. It's time to take back our democratic rights. 'Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.' – DH Lawrence'
