- Since we joined the EEC in 1973, we have been in surplus with every continent in the world except Europe. Over those 27 years, we have run a trade deficit with the other member states that averages out at £30 million per day.
- In 2010 our gross contribution to the EU budget will be £14 billion. To put this figure in context, all the reductions announced by George Osborne at the Conservative Party Conference would, collectively, save £7 billion a year across the whole of government spending.
- On the European Commission’s own figures, the annual costs of EU regulation outweigh the advantages of the single market by €600 to €180 billion.
- The Common Agricultural Policy costs every family £1200 a year in higher food bills.
- Outside the Common Fisheries Policy, Britain could reassert control over its waters out to 200 miles or the median line, which would take in around 65 per cent of North Sea stocks.
- Successive British governments have refused to say what proportion of domestic laws come from Brussels, but a thorough analysis by the German Federal Justice Ministry showed that 84 per cent of the legislation in that country came from the EU.
- Outside the EU, Britain would be free to negotiate much more liberal trade agreements with third countries than is possible under the Common External Tariff.
- The countries with the highest GDP per capita in Europe are Norway and Switzerland. Both export more, proportionately, to the EU, than Britain does.
- Outside the EU, Britain could be a deregulated, competitive, offshore haven.
- Oh, and we’d be a democracy again.
There are, of course, a multiplicity of other reasons for us to go it alone; some financial; some political; some biblical; some prophetic; some moral et al. I'm all for folks checking these facts out for themselves instead of just accepting the status quo and voting in the [supposed] "main" parties in and out every four or five years - that's all.
Be evangelists [as applicable]; Be Bereans; DO NOT BE DECEIVED! and watch that periphery!

- The U.K. has more surveillance cameras per citizen than anywhere else in the world. In fact, according to one estimate, there are 4.8 million video cameras constantly watching every move citizens make.
- Government education inspectors in the U.K. have announced that the 40,000 parents who home school their own children must undergo criminal records checks.
- U.K. authorities are now admitting that every phone call, text message, email and website visit made by private citizens will be stored for one year and will be available for monitoring by government agencies.
- Officials in the U.K. have spent two years and massive amounts of money on a study they claim proves that 10-pin bowling is a health and safety hazard and should be banned.
- Parents at one school in the U.K. are being forced to undergo background checks to prove that they are not pedophiles before they are allowed to accompany their children to school Christmas carol events.
- A U.K. Parliamentary briefing note published in November 2009 maintains that the U.K. government has the power to impose nationwide mandatory swine flu vaccinations under the Civil Contingencies Act of 2004.
- Thousands of "dysfunctional" families in the U.K. are being subjected to intensive 24-hour surveillance to make sure that their children attend school, go to bed on time and eat proper meals. About 2,000 families have already gone through these "Family Intervention Projects", and the U.K. government plans to increase the scope of this program to 20,000 more families over the next two years.
- A controversial new proposal in the U.K. would force political parties to make Parliament less white, male, middle-class and heterosexual.
- The U.K.'s new Internet law includes a "three strikes" rule that allows your entire family to be cut off from the Internet if anyone who lives in your house is accused of copyright infringement - without proof or evidence or trial.
- The U.K. government's obsession with collecting personal data has now extended to 5 year olds, as local Community Health Services are preparing to get parents to reveal the most intimate details of their child’s personal, behavioral and eating habits.
- The U.K. government is going to make sure that their citizens are "environmentally friendly" whether they like it or not. Under a new government plan, energy experts in the U.K. are going to visit every home in the country in order to "help them go green". As part of "The Great British Refurb", teams of "energy advisers" will go "house by house, street by street" to tell people what they must do in order to become eco-friendly.
- The U.K. has become absolutely obsessed with garbage, with huge fines imposed on those who do not dispose of their trash in the prescribed manner.
- The head of the Environment Agency in the U.K. believes that implementing individual carbon allowances for each citizen will be the most effective way of meeting the targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
- In an almost inconceivable move, personal checks are to be abolished under controversial plans being drawn up by U.K. bankers.
- It is now illegal to photograph the police in the U.K.
- In the U.K., the study of evolution is to become a compulsory subject in all state primary schools.

- The U.K. is in the process of implementing a "National Identity Card" which will be able to hold fifty different categories of information on each U.K. citizen, including digital facial scans, digital iris scans and up to 10 fingerprints.
As with all things; you need to check out the above "20 Signs that the U.K. has become the most oppressive Big Brother society on earth" for yourselves. I could probably make it a "40 Signs" with a trawl of my 'stuff'. The point is that; when you really think about it; we don't REALLY live a free democracy - do we?
Our children are brainwashed with evolutionary THEORY; Gaia mother earth worship; multiplicity of religions; UN sponsored globalization mantras; hatred of True Christianity et al. One cannot really say what one thinks without the PC brigade shouting you down.
The best way to keep your slave population in place is to let them think themselves free when they are not. Deception really is the name of the games in the last days. The best way to deceive folks is to either [a] be deceived yourself and [b] think that you could never be deceived. Not a few Christians are under the mistaken impression that they cannot be deceived. And they are wrong.
Please [continue to] be evangelistic before it's too late! Be Bereans; DO NOT BE DECEIVED! and watch that periphery!
