5.0 out of 5 stars The confidence trick of this century and the last., 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Au Revoir, Europe: What if Britain left the EU? (Kindle Edition)
This is a well researched book, written for the ordinary person, and it gives both sides of the argument well. If you are wondering how to vote when the time comes then this book is required reading.

What it does set out, however, is how the british people have been consistently lied to and conned as to just what governments were trying to achieve. Having been an adult when the whole thing started I, like many other people, thought that we were joining a common market (a free trade area). The powers that be, however, were trying to tie the major countries of Europe so closely together that a future war would be impossible, and that's fair enough but I wish we had been told so that we could have voted accordingly.

To most people today, the idea of an unelected hierarchy which cares nothing for the people it governs and spends money like water with no financial control whatsoever is abhorrent.

This is supposed to be a review of the book - not an opportunity for you to share your opinion on membership of the EU.

I suggest that you read my comments again as I think they are fair. You have obviously been rather blinded by the universal application of rose tinted spectacles. I am in my early seventies and consider that I have been lied to for decades.

Roll on the referendum, if they ever have one, which I doubt.

Hear Hear Biggles. One can only deduce from Ms Wilson's comments that she is a naive bleeding- heart Liberal!
