THE BREXIT campaign for the UK to leave the European Union has gained the support of Tory MPs in the area. 

Both Adam Afriyie, Windsor MP, and John Redwood MP for Wokingham have announced they will vote to leave the EU in this June's referendum to decide the UK's membership. 

The referendum on June 23 was announced last Friday following lengthy negotiations between Prime Minister David Cameron and EU member states to review Britain's membership.

Despite the deal struck, Adam Afriyie claimed the UK would be at risk of higher taxes, uncontrolled immigration and declining EU trade if it remained in the union while Mr Redwood, a long-time campaigner against the EU, said the Prime Minister asked for too little and came away from negotiations with 'even less' than he wanted.

Bracknell MP Dr Phillip Lee has not yet responded to the News' request for comment but has previously said he would vote to leave if he wasn't satisfied with any deal struck. 

Mr Afriyie said: "A vote to remain is not a vote for keeping things as they are – it is a vote to allow the EU to take even greater control over our affairs.

"Voting to leave is the only way we can regain control over our own laws and keep our country safe, prosperous and free.

"Anyone who wants to trade with Europe and gain the freedom to help developing nations across Africa and Asia by buying their produce should vote to leave.”

Wokingham representative Mr Redwood has been open about his dislike of the EU and said: "The UK wants a very different EU from the majority. So isn’t the good European thing to do to leave?

"We and they need strong relationships between the UK and the EU based on trade, mutual co-operation and friendship.

He added: "The sooner we do that the better, for their sakes as well as ours.

"Their wild ride to political union is not what we want to go on. We don’t need an emergency brake. We need to get out of the vehicle."

Boris Johnson and Michael Gove are among the prominent Tory politicians who have announced their support for Brexit (British Exit from the EU), despite David Cameron claiming the new deal means the country can have 'the best of both worlds' and remain a member state. 

The Prime Minister returned from a tense week of negotiations with new limits of welfare benefits for EU migrants, stronger protection for non-EU states against problems in the Eurozone and an agreement Britain would not be tied into an 'ever closer political union'.
