T-May Blasts “Nonsense” Remain Scaremongering

Theresa May has blasted Remain campaign scaremongering as “nonsense“, admitting “of course” Britain could cope outside the EU:

“I want to deal with several arguments that should not count. The first is that in the 21st century Britain is too small a country to cope outside the European Union. That’s nonsense. We’re the fifth biggest economy in the world, we’re growing faster than any economy in the G7, we attract nearly a fifth of all foreign investment in the EU, we have a military capable of projecting its power around the world, intelligence services that are second to none, and friendships and alliances that go far beyond Europe. We have the greatest soft power in the world, we sit in exactly the right timezone for global trade and our language is the world’s language. Of course Britain could cope outside the European Union.”

And here is the killer line on what remaining in the EU means for immigration:

“Free movement rules mean it’s harder to control the volume of European immigration, and that is clearly no good thing.”

A more honest approach from T-May compared with some of her Remain colleagues…
