  2. Why bother? “Would anyone in their right mind want to

    join the EU today? It is 50 years old, it is going in the wrong direction. It is time for real reform. The only way to get that is to leave.” "The more I look at the EU - we've a currency crisis tearing north and south apart, a migrant crisis leading to walls being built in Austria and Hungary - Schengen isn't working, nothing is working. It's in a permanent, perpetual crisis. The EU looks like a burning building but there's an exit door, and I suggest on June 23, we take it."
