There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:
1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I don't work out in a gym but I can still get off a low sofa without using my arms, bend down to pick things up, squat for a couple of minutes and get up without a push-up, have a good sense of balance andbother things. Why? Because I don't let others do for me those things I can do myself - fitness by doing! Stamina is another thing, my heart condition and a couple of inactive years can be blamed for that. Slowly re-conditioning.
Though, because I recently ran out of my vascodilator capsules for two days, my BP went up (to a whole 105/65) and I felt better. Now with a new supply I have cut the dose from 2 to 1 a day to see what happens. A walk round town later might show something interesting.
After 12 years of hearing in Catholic schools that I can have an eternity in a place called Heaven, and figuring that I will have an eternity to watch what people here on Earth are doing, I realized in 1957 when I quit believing that stuff that as an atheist I won’t be able to do that.
But that was then and this is now. When I was hearing all that tripe, I knew little of what people here were actually doing. I have seen almost enough; it’s ice cream that keeps me here.
