Dear Mr. Withycombe,
Thank you for your email of 7th June about the
O course I believe that the will of the people as
articulated in the referendum result needs to be respected by Parliament. But
the question as to what happens if the British people take the disastrous
decision to leave is a very interesting one and one best addressed to the
leaders of the leave side of the argument.
What will be the trading and other relationships between
Britain and other European countries, and indeed the rest of the world if we
vote to leave?
There are various models on offer, all of which
contradict each other and all of which have been adopted at one stage by one
of the leaders of the Leave campaign. Norway, Switzerland and Albania
(which wishes to join the EU) have all been suggested as potential role models
for Britain. We have no idea what the Government of the day would
eventually propose, and therefore what legislation would be required to
This is illustrative of the huge risks and uncertainty
that a vote to leave would cause, even amongst its own supporters
This is one of the reasons why I believe Britain is
stronger, safer and better off voting to remain.

don't want pointless nibbling at the edges of our commitment to a centralised,
undemocratic soviet style super-state, concessions which will undoubtedly be
rescinded once a referendum is over. We don't want insignificant changes to
the amount of benefits that immigrants can claim once they reach our shores.
What the British people demand is to say a final farewell to Brussels and all
it stands for; we were cruelly deceived when we opted to join and now we have
no intention of being taken for fools again.
Mr Cameron's most implausible recent statements was that once we leave the EU
and again become a sovereign nation, we will have the same status as Norway
and will have to go cap in hand to the Brussels autocrats to be allowed to
continue to trade with the remaining Euro states. In fact, once free of the
dead hand of EU control, we will be free to trade freely anywhere in the world
on our own, independently negotiated terms and bearing in mind that the EU
sells far more to us than we do to them, there is no reason why a newly
independent Britain, under a government with a bit of backbone, shouldn't be
dictating to Brussels the terms upon which we will allow them to trade with

the country but in the final battle we must join our colleagues in the many
other like-minded organisations who share our belief and determination to

The Referendum is not
for us a political campaign but a battle waged by all who value freedom. It
can be won if we are determined to win but those of us already committed must
redouble our efforts to convince those still undecided that this will be our
last chance to recreate our finest hour.
