Actor Daniel Craig has declared his support for Remain by tweeting a picture of himself with a “No man is an island” slogan on a t shirt.
No man is born a slave, I would say.
No man worth his salt who is born free chooses in the course of his life time to become a slave. No reasonable man choses to give total power over his destiny to officials, whom he does not elect or even know by name. That is what Daniel Craig is really advocating with his tweet encouraging an In vote. Total subservience to unelected and unaccountable officials in Brussels, who rule us with an iron fist for their benefit.
God made each man and woman free and equal. He did not create us to be slaves in an imperial EU superstructure.
Go Britain! Leave a sinking ship. Break free!
Craig may quote John Donne but there are other better poets…
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
William Shakespeare, “King Richard II”, Act 2 scene 1
