The Bruges Group spearheaded the intellectual battle to win a vote to leave the European Union and, above all, against the emergence of a centralised EU state.

How the EU keeps you poor

Again and Again official figures are showing the EU system makes us poorer than we would be without the EU

By allowing the free movement of labour, the EU is turning Britain into a  low wage and low productivity economy - again we see our competitiveness reduced by EU membership. Even in Germany, the only beneficiary of the Euro,  working people have seen almost no increase in living standards for many years. So who wins? It is actually lose/lose for Britain and the countries in central and eastern Europe who lose the labour, and the chance to build their own countries up.

The EU is a stagnant old system and it is holding, not just Britain but all of the EU back.  A vote to Leave does not just set Britain free to flourish but will give hope to all Europe.
