Donald Trump has done his best to encourage Brexit by both overt and covert means to get access to commercial Britain.

Vladimir Putin encourages Brexit in order to weaken European security.

The party has no stated policy apart from to leave and see what happens then.

Why not remain, despite the many faults of the EU?
