The UK’s pro-Brexit Justice Secretary Michael Gove has slammed the “invincible arrogance of Europe’s elites,” accusing Prime Minister David Cameron of scaremongering.
In an astonishing attack on his own party leader, the justice secretary said Cameron and other “Remain” supporters were treating British voters as if they were “too small, too poor and… too stupid” to go it alone outside the EU.
Though leaving is opposed by most economists, Leavers say the EU is a “job destroying machine,” while a senior former spy chief claims staying in the EU could import a ‘terrorist virus’ when the country can’t control its borders.
In response, the Prime Minister himself has generated a terrifying list of consequences of leaving, saying it helps ISIL, weakens the West against Russia and North Korea, generates migrant camps in the UK, provokes a criminal influx, job losses and poverty, and could trigger world war.
Are Europe’s elites too arrogant? Does Britain treat its citizens as idiots? And is the UK too small to succeed alone? These are the simple questions we sought to answer.
