The Telegraph: Those saying we should leave Europe are infected with madness

The Telegraph: Those saying we should leave Europe are infected with madness

by Dan Hodges

For Out to win they know they must first destroy reason. They must convince a majority of mature, rational British adults that we should withdraw from our largest, most profitable trading block just at the very moment the world is teetering on the brink of another global recession. They know they must convince them of the wisdom of turning our back on our most important diplomatic partnerships just as Vladimir Putin is casting his malign eye westwards. They know they must convince them the Britain should attempt to face – in isolation – the most significant refugee crisis and terror threat since the war.

And so to do that, they are trying to spread the contagion. Not though rational argument. No, actually, through fear. But simply by trying to drag an entire nation through the looking glass. To convince us all to see the same upside down world they see whenever the hear the name “Europe”.


Perhaps not exactly a polite article, but Dan Hodges nails it on the head. There is something utterly unreasonable and irrational about those thundering for Brexit.
