The EU is capable of change, but in only one way; to grab more power from the member states. Democratic reform within the EU is an impossibility. Britain, one of the EU’s biggest donors, asked for reform, and, even when faced with the prospect of Brexit, the EU could offer us virtually nothing. The Lisbon Treaty gave the EU all the trappings of a nation state, and specifies that the EU is sovereign authority in all areas except those where it has chosen not to legislate. If you’re staying in the EU in the misguided belief that you can reform it, you fail to understand sixty years of history; we will be crushed by an unstoppable bureaucracy.

The UK today is one of the developed world’s most unequal nations, with the richest 1,000 people owning more wealth than 40% of the population, or 25.6 million people. Inequality has stretched our society to breaking point, with vast material differences creating huge social distances. It’s why over 80% of people are now concerned about the gap between rich and poor, and why even billionaires such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have voiced concerns over inequality. But inequality isn’t inevitable, it can be reversed. For this to happen we need our politicians to commit to its reduction.
