Members of Bath for Europe were joined by the city’s MP Wera Hobhouse and other local people opposed to Brexit and the government’s treatment of Parliament in its determination to take us out of Europe.

It all kicks off on Tuesday when Parliament re-assembles. Wera Hobhouse – of course will be there. But first l asked her how impressed she was with today’s turnout.

  1. I have realised that the Remainers have been right all along when they say I did not know all the true facts before voting to leave, and it’s true! We WERE lied to apparently – so I decided to do a little research.

    I just voted to leave because I thought our sovereignty was being compromised by foreign unelected masters. That we were compelled to have unlimited uncontrolled immigration, our laws and export agreements dictated by Brussels bureaucrats – and had to pay eye-watering amounts for the privilege

    However…

    I did not know more than 10,000 EU officials get paid more than our Prime Minister.

    I did not know that, unlike the UK, 18 countries get more back from the EU than they put in.

    I did not know that the EU occupies over 45 buildings – 2 of which were purpose built monuments of grandeur and are the largest buildings in Europe.

    I did not know that the EU Parliament spends 150 million euros a year moving to Strasbourg every month for 4 days committee meetings – and any attempt to stop this madness is vetoed by France.

    I did not know that the EU has had a huge luxury tax free shopping Mall built in Brussels for exclusive use of EU employees.

    I did not know that every day queues of chauffeur driven cars, with their engines running, wait outside EU establishments while their occupants go in, sign in for their attendance allowance and expenses, then come straight back out and are driven away.

    I did not know that many of them (like the Kinnocks) end up as millionaires as a reward for looking the other way!

    I did not know that Clegg was lying when he mocked Nigel Farage for saying that an EU army was being planned – and Brussels said all along that it would NEVER happen.

    I did not know that the EU had been financing the mass movement of industries from UK to mainland Europe.

    I did not know that every member of the EU Council has to swear an Oath of Allegiance to the EU – so they are not a country’s representative to the EU. They are the EU’s representative to the country!

    I could go on and on but suffice it to say that I have never for a moment doubted the correctness of my decision but I am now even surer than ever.

    I am so glad that the Remainers prompted me to look deeper into the bureaucratic absurdity of being a member of the EU.
