“The EU isn’t undemocratic. It’s anti-democratic.”
I guess just by the title of the video you can guess where I stand on the matter. I actually had to re-sign the electoral register since I’d moved out of my local borough, and I did it specifically because while I’m not necessarily into the political system (though I talk about political ideals), I feel obliged to vote in the EU referendum in July.
This movie had to be kick-started. There was no government funding involved, and it shows a side to the EU that the bureaucrats don’t want us to see. The EU is at odds with the UK political system because the MEPs have no real power, and those within the EU that have said power cannot be voted out like we can remove a party from power in the UK. The referendum is, as a generation, our only chance to do what our parents and grandparents didn’t.
The movie is an hour and eleven minutes long, but the Brexit: The Movie website has the full film broken down into chunks for sporadic viewing.
I implore everyone to watch it before they vote. Whether it changes minds or not is inconsequential. The Remain campaign has done it’s best to monopolise the media with celebrity personalities and (in my opinion) wanting statistics. There is little information available for the Leave campaign that isn’t dismissed as xenophobia or right-wing drivel. If you can vote in this referendum, you have an obligation to learn and vote in a way that suits your morals and standards, no matter what they are. If you forgo your right to speak, you may find that right is no longer yours to have.
