Frågan om Sverige skall bli medlem av en europeisk valutaunion är ett av de största och mest vittomfattande beslut som vårt land stått inför på mycket lång tid.
Göran Persson, SvD Brännpunkt 1996-12-29

“Sovereignty”, the “British Constitution”, our “democracy”, “self-government”
The hard won right of the British people to elect and dismiss those who make their laws.
The British people have given Parliament the power to make all their laws for them,
but they have not given Parliament permission to give that power away.
Both these principles, for which, over the centuries, millions have willingly given up their lives,
already stand deeply betrayed by our membership of the European Union.
Lord Pearson of Rannoch, January 2005

General de Gaulle

Winston Churchill, 1940:
”We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be.
We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds.
We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills.
We shall never surrender.”
