That was the winning slogan of the American colonists in 1776 in their fight against British Empire taxation and it should be ours opposing EU taxation.
What the EU will want is our fishing grounds that Heath gave away in 72/73 to ensure our entry into the EEC. No skin off Heaths nose. Indeed he was rewarded with the valuable Charlemagne prize out of which he bought his yacht Morning Cloud. Getting our fishing grounds back will be a totemic victory for Mrs May and boy does she need a good result all she has had so far are disasters.
I have no doubt she will swallow all the EU demands just as Heath did in 73. It will be a national humiliation engineered by our traitorous MPs, Grieve, Soubry etc.
There is an alternative just walk away and tell the EU all our future trade will be on WTO rules. Has she the guts to do this? I doubt it.
When I campaigned in the streets for the Referendum I warned the good citizens of Somerset if we did not leave the EU their children would live as German slaves or as Rees Mogg puts it we will be a vassal state. I was abused by the LibDems for saying this but it has come to pass sooner than even I expected.
The EU philes always switch the argument to economic grounds Heath did this in 1972/73 so well that issues like the ECJ ruling over us was never even discussed. Freedom always trumps economics. Ask the Chinese.
Our referendum vote was to restore our freedom. Politicians want to keep us enslaved so they can feather their own nest as Lansley, Mitchell and Lilley showed on C4 dispatches last night. £5000 a day seems to be the going daily rate for ex cabinet ministers. I think the EU betters that for its bien pensants.
The transition period is a trap, set by the EU/HMT and fed to Hammond who egged on by his corporatist friends enthusiastically propounded it at Cabinet as his own big idea. Hammond is not smart enough to see the trap. Rees Mogg does thank gooodness.
