Dear British Friends,

"We must sow terror in the hearts of the Irish people,"  a senior Irish politician said to Irish Independent journalist James Downey in 2001, explaining how the Republic's Government would reverse the Irish people's No vote to the EU's Nice Treaty that year and turn it into a Yes vote to  the same treaty the year following.

This was duly done and voters in Ireland's second referendum on this EU treaty were threatened with the local equivalent of Prime Minister Cameron's lurid vision of economic apocalypse and World War 3 if they did  not vote the way Brussels and their own ultra-Europhile politicians wanted.

Spreading fear and misinformation, using bullying and threats, is standard practice for the supporters of the supranational integration project in every EU country as they seek ever more power for themselves by undermining the national democracy of their own peoples and taking ever more power and control away from national Parliaments and Governments.

If Britain votes to leave the EU, other EU countries will almost certainly follow, quite possibly Denmark, Sweden, Finland or Holland.

Ireland should do so too, thereby releasing itself from the deadly embrace of the Eurozone, joining which was the biggest mistake ever made by the Irish State and which has made  the Irish people into wage-toilers for Europe's bankers.

Ireland applied to join the then EEC in 1961 because the United Kingdom did so. Ireland joined the EEC in 1973 because the UK did so. If the British people vote to regain their independence on 23 June, the Irish State should follow their example. That is the only way to break free of the Eurozone, an area with which the Republic does less than one-third of its trade and which it should never have joined

The disastrous euro-currency project is bound to implode  in the next few years. If Britain votes to remain in the EU it must suffer significant collateral damage from that implosion, while British taxpayers will be expected to foot the bill to keep the Eurozone together, as happened when they were made to contribute to Ireland's so-called "bailout" in 2010, which was really a bailout of German, French and other EU Banks.

If the British people vote to leave the EU, they will be striking a mighty blow for democracy and true internationalism in face of the threats from Brussels and Berlin, encouraged by Washington.

They will encourage democrats in every EU country, whether Left, Right or Centre,  to break away from the institutional monster that is the EU and re-establish their national independence and democracy - that being the only basis for stable, long-lasting and friendly cooperation amongst Europe's  nations and States.
