The debate as to whether we should remain in the EU will go on well after 23rd June. Do we stay in and continue to pay billions every year to reap the benefits of a single market and freedom of movement? Or do we leave, save billions but jump into an unknown future both economically and socially?

Centralised power brings with it corruption, red tape and bureaucracy. Whether all centralised institutions are corrupt is a matter of interpretation, however, larger institutions where the majority of the power lies centrally will have some form of corruption – whether that’s financial or otherwise. The basic principle of decentralised power is that it is local people electing local people to judge, govern and make decisions on their behalf. The biblical principle is that we should appoint judges and officials for each tribe who will judge the people fairly. People from outside the tribe must integrate with them if they want to remain.

It is much harder to be corrupt when power is spread around, irregularities are easier to spot when one particular area stands out and local people have a vested interest in what they are doing. Do the MEPs in Brussels really care about small villages in Estonia, or rural farms in the north of Scotland? 

So, does this mean we should come out of Europe and go it alone? We would be stepping into an unknown. What will the economic implications be, if any? What will it mean socially for us as a nation? Whatever the result in June, the what ifs and theorising will go on.

  1. No, Brussels doesn’t care about a rural farm in Scotland, but that’s why there are local councils that take care of that scale. Brussels cares about all farms in Europe and how they can succeed together – it focuses on the bigger picture.

    Take away Brussels and the farm in Scotland is going to be a lot more isolated than it was before. Nobody is there to focus on the bigger picture.

    The leave campaign has been so full of misinformation and scaremongering it’s almost criminal.
