Freedom

I tend to work at home most Fridays on a project so secret even I do not fully know what it is all about.

But anyway, I watched Daily Politics at lunchtime.

Not convinced by the segmentation applied to people unhappy about the EU.

If you are going to do this sort of segmentation you have to use the labels that people self-identify with, not stick labels on people from a great height.

Question 1:  should EU states have a right to secede?

Question 2: would you feel more free in a United Kingdom outside the EU?

Question 3:  do you want to feel free and in control of the laws that govern your life?

As soon as you portray the argument in terms of freedom vs non-freedom perceptions start to change.

Freedom is an intoxicating idea.
