Of the reasons the Bremain campaign have given for voting In,  the one that “it is the only way of ensuring social reforms / employment protections” is surely the most cowardly.

The idea that if you don’t like the actions of the Govt of your country you should appeal to an external power to help change them has always been counted as treason. 
See, for example, Guy Fawkes hawking round the Catholic heads of Europe for assistance in overturning the Govt.  Or, recently, the career of Ahmed Chalabi.

If you don’t like what your Govt is doing, you have to change that from within your country.
Tommy Sheridan went to gaol so’s you didn’t have to pay the Poll Tax.


Of the poll tax .....  I used to know a judge,  right wing, conservative, a fan of Thatcher.  His political consciousness was raised one afternoon when, dining with his wife at a restaurant just off Trafalgar Sq,  a scaffold pole came through the window.  He wasn't so keen on Thatcher and the consequences of her reforms after that.


If you want to change Govt policy, you have to be prepared to go out on the streets and break windows or worse.  And you have to be prepared to take the consequences of doing it.

As a million people can tell you, no one ever stopped a war by standing in a park.

And Tommy Sheridan went to gaol so’s you didn’t have to pay the Poll Tax.
