The Vote Leave campaign group who are campaigning to leave the European Union are having their national Take Control day today. In essence leaving the EU will mean the UK will be able to take back control of our own affairs. We will be able to take control of our borders and decide who we let in. No more being forced to admit foreign criminals just because they are EU citizens. We will be able to take back control of our own trade deals. We will be able to decide how to spend the annual membership fee – our contribution of around £18 billion a year. Of course some of this will go to the same areas it does now such as farmers but we will be able to decide how we spend the rest. We will no longer have to subsidise foreign farmers.
