BREXIT – AN EXCITING PROSPECT AHEAD.
I see the Brexit leave vote as an exciting and challenging prospect for the
. After over
40 years of membership of the EU the UK has been left in a serious
financial state supported by out of control borrowing. UK
If we vote to leave the EU we will be free to invest the £10 billion saved from our membership, the £14 billion from the Foreign Aid budget and money saved from the trade deficit to form an Investment fund, the Lions Den, to support through loans or overdraft guarantee schemes, business plans and possible management buyout plans securing the future and development of our manufacturing sector. This would reduce our imports, provide skilled jobs, reduce our benefits costs and increase our tax income.
We would continue to meet our foreign aid commitments but instead of supplying money we would supply manufactured goods and backup services. If you give a man a fish you feed him and his family for a day but if you give him the right equipment and teach him how to us it he feeds his family for the rest of time. Most of the countries that we want to help don’t want long term charity that they become dependant on, they actually want help to get back on their feet and have a pride in being able to feed their own families. From reports that I have seen, harrowing scenes of scorched earth, people trying to scratch together enough to feed themselves and their families and animals dying, the one thing that seems to link them all together is the lack of clean water. We can manufacture desalination plants, irrigation pumps, filtration equipment, pipe work, tractors, implements, disease resistant seed that will grow in harsh environments and the technology to make it all work. Whole communities can be independent producing enough food for their own needs and some over to sell or trade to get other items that they need for a quality of life. Once the model is up and working it can be rolled out to many other communities. We have helped to feed the world in the past and this would be a chance to help the world feed itself.
