of Burnham 'leave EU' group criticises David Cameron's deal
Burnham-On-Sea leader of a pressure group campaigning for people
to vote against staying in the European Union has spoken out against
David Cameron's EU deal.
Hims, who was Burnham's UKIP parliamentary candidate in last year's
General Election and is leading the local 'Sedgemoor Leave.EU'
group has attacked the Prime Minister's deal.
Helen said: "David Cameron has returned from his marathon
talks in Brussels with no new treaties, no powers or sovereignty
returned, European Court of Justice still in charge, £350
million a week still paid to Brussels, and no increase of border
"Nothing in his deal is legally binding and can be ripped
up by EU politicians and unelected judges, and to be honest I
quite expect they will do exactly that."
"The EU is built to keep power and control with the elites
rather than the people. If, at our one and only chance to get
a new deal, these small concessions are all Cameron could secure
"before" we vote; imagine how we will be treated if
we vote to stay!"
She added: "There is absolutely no doubt the UK would be
freer, fairer and better off outside the EU. We can lead and show
the rest of Europe the way to flourish."
"The date is set for the vote - June 23rd. What a lovely
time of year to hold our 'Independence Day' celebrations for years
