Like I said, I still haven’t heard a single concrete reason that stands up to any sort of scrutiny.

“Sovereignty”? Over what, that we didn’t already have? Which EU laws were actually oppressing you?

Fishing quotas? We’ll still have to negotiate agreements with our neighbours over quotas, and to avoid overfishing. Iceland and Norway are highly unlikely to settle for an arrangement that benefits the UK more. Unless of course we want more cod wars.

You don’t like how the EU is treating Africa? How is leaving going to help?
