It’s safer to take back control and spend our money on our priorities
Imagine if we Vote Leave in 56 days’ time… Our entrepreneurs could focus on creating jobs and supporting the economy rather than reading through
reams of regulations from Brussels.
Free business from EU regulation
Employment Minister Priti Patel has today made a speech on how we can free small businesses from unnecessary regulation after we Vote Leave. Only 6%
of UK businesses export to the EU, yet 100% have to abide by regulation from Brussels. HM Treasury estimate that the cost of complying with burdensome
EU red tape is the equivalent of £4,600 per household every year.
Ms Patel stated that after we take back control on 23 June, the UK can perform an audit of EU regulation to ensure that small businesses are not
shackled by unnecessary rules. Pro-EU campaigners including Nick Clegg and David Cameron have previously called for small companies to be exempt from
these burdens, however their attempts were vetoed by Brussels.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, accounting for 60% of private sector employment and making up 99% of total businesses in the UK.
After we Vote Leave on 23 June, they will be free of stifling EU regulation and can focus on what they do best - creating jobs and driving economic
We can better protect workers’ rights outside the EU
David Cameron and former trade union leader Sir Brendan Barber today claimed that leaving the EU would be a ‘disaster’ for workers’ rights. It
is sad to see the Prime Minister doing Britain down. We don’t have to give up control to EU politicians and unelected EU judges to protect working
people. Indeed, UK law is often far more generous than EU law, such as on maternity pay and leave.
It is a myth to say that we must stay in the EU to protect workers. You only have to look at the high levels of unemployment in Greece, Spain,
Portugal and the rest of the eurozone, to see that the EU is no friend of the worker. In 2009, Sir Brendan himself warned that the European Court has
‘undermined’ minimum standards.
The safer choice for British workers is to Vote Leave on 23 June.
