The economy and business should be secondary to democracy and freedom

The campaign by the vested interests has already started. Those who find the European Union a convenient mechanism to control nations have ensured that a regular drip of big business will leave if the UK leave the EU stories are in the media every day. ( Its catnip to the BBC of course. )

But hold on a minute - whilst the pro-UK side could argue about the economy ( and there's a very good argument to be had ) - the starting point needs to be democracy and sovereignty.

Thanks to the EU Constitution Lisbon Treaty qualified majority voting is ensures that it doesn't matter how you vote or what government you elect - the laws will be the same.

We have been democratically  lobotomised.

The starting point of the EU referendum should be why should we hand our sovereinty over?
