The upcoming referendum on Britain’s EU membership is an important moment in the nation’s history. On June 23, 2016, British citizens will have their chance to decide whether they want to stay or leave the European Union – a decision which could have far-reaching consequences for the future of the UK.
In light of this crucial vote, a new documentary called Brexit: The Movie has been released in an attempt to make a compelling argument for leaving the EU. The film dives deep into the formation and structure of the EU, highlighting the lack of accountability and transparency that plagues its operations. It also looks at how industries and individuals have suffered at the hands of EU regulations, and warns of potentially dire economic repercussions if Britain remains part of it.
Brexit: The Movie takes viewers to Switzerland – a country which has refused to join the EU – in order to provide an example of what life outside might look like for Britain. Here we are presented with an image of growing wealth, decreasing unemployment and high quality living conditions; all of which can be attributed to Switzerland’s refusal to become part of the European Union.
It must not be forgotten that this referendum is one of the most consequential votes British citizens are likely to make in their lifetime. Indeed, it has been more than 40 years since such a vote was offered. As Brexit: The Movie makes clear, continued adherence to EU rule would come at an unacceptable cost – namely depriving citizens from their right to real democracy.
If you want better insight into this critical juncture in British history then you should watch Brexit: The Movie. It will provide an invaluable source of information with which you can make a more informed decision when voting on June 23rd.
