Please encourage your undecided friends and ‘Remain’ voters to vote LEAVE for the following three reasons:

1. FREEDOM from undemocratic power

2. FREEDOM from unregulated immigration

3. FREEDOM from restrictions to trade globally

We are losing our national freedom, and are set to lose more if we remain in the EU.

Surely all reasonable people see the sheer sense of voting Leave. Please do not vote according to purely personal or selfish reasons. This vote is about the future of our country.

EU funding has been a massive joke, therefore is the big reason for voting Leave.

When the PEACE III funding was being considered in NI, I was the only voice at one meeting to speak against it. Having been involved in several EU-funded projects, the amount of sheer torture I was subjected to, both in NI and in Brussels, was unimaginable.

They were obstructionist, difficult, sought to promote those who were disposed towards the terrorists while denigrating those of us who were terrorist victims. They just would not listen to any criticism of McGuinness et al.

The hoops we were expected to jump through, hoops that were designed to make us disposed to embracing republican terrorists and their supporters and friends, were ridiculous. EU funders did not want us to maintain that there was a difference between the victims of terrorism and those who were killed in active terrorist duty, etc.

The fact is that the EU is not pre-disposed to helping the victims of terrorism. In fact, the opposite. Why then does it fund victim-projects?

For one reason – to give the impression that they are interested in supporting work among the victims of terrorism. It was a mere box-ticking exercise designed to make the EU look good.

Its approach to the leaders in the pro-British victims sector was one of benign hostility. It was controlling and manipulative.

Its officers sought to control what was being done. On four occasions and with four different EU funding bodies, I told them to take their money back because I was not prepared to go down the road they wanted me to follow.

None of them did because the bad publicity they would have received was not what any of them wanted. They tried to bully me, control me and otherwise bully me. I was not amenable to such evil treatment.

That’s one very good reason why we must vote Leave on Thursday. There are many others. The big reason is to maintain our blood-bought freedom in the face of every attempt to enslave us further.

Staying in the EU is one way of guaranteeing further and increasing enslavement and bondage.

We must maintain our freedom. Vote Leave!
