The EU In/Out debate has largely been focussed upon economics, which are imponderables, yet described as facts. When we vote in general and in the referendum in particular we are doing something much more important. We vote for the political institution to which we wish to surrender our personal sovereignty and for them to then make laws that govern us. Democracy accepts that no one is an island, but that none of us can have two masters, such as the UK AND the EU. All else is smoke and mirrors designed to suppress national sovereignty and democracy.

This is a good letter with a valid point, why would you give up your ability to govern your own country and hand it off to unelected officials?
