      Erm…isn’t it the pro-EU argument that we’ve got exactly that?

        When will people wake up,, Its Not the Euro thats the Problem,, its Not the market thats the problem its the Political Elite who have legislated to line their own pockets. Once we stop the Political elite and their families making millions from their WORK.. The sooner we will get the right things done.

          I think you will find that the problem is politics. You could put the Buddha in the HoC, and within 5 years he would have to change his name to Denis MacShame.

            Which is why we need proper checks and restraints on just what the political class can and can’t do, enforced with the barrel of the gun if need be.

            At the moment we might as well be living under foreign occupation for all the f-all say the native peoples actually have in the running of our country.

            We need more democracy that is the only way to control politicians. That is why they love the EU it is obscure, based on networking and designed to remove power to a central elite. As I’ve already said the only chance to remove the current political elite is the ensure the two main parties are defeated in turn. Firstly Dave and his shower by using UKIP to prevent him winning in 2015. This means a big price to pay in that you’ll have a short term imploding Millbean government that will in turn be defeated for good by a new Conservative party based on small government, small tax, small state and putting this nation first some point in 2015 -20. It’s a big price but short of taking to the streets armed to get rid of the current political class I can’t see another option!

        “around 50% of our trade is with the EU.”

        Good start, an outright lie.

        “We need to be in the single market,”

        We would be still in the single market if we left the EU. We would also be free to trade with whoever we wanted outside the single market, without EU interference.

        “not just to sell goods to Europe, but having a seat around the table and having a say in what the rules are.”

        If we are outside the EU we can decide what rules we want to opt into or not, depending on our national interest. Instead of being co-opted into damaging rules under QMV and Commision diktat.

      Best big it up as far as possible to frighten the horses.

      Of course Cameron does not mention the fact that we buy far more from EU countries, than we sell to them.

      So any potential loss of trade would be offset by an even bigger loss to EU member states, in the extremely unlikely event, of them deciding on the hari kari, trade war option.

      Know a few people over the years that have worked in McDees – can smell them coming a mile off, that certain smell of theirs, like when you pass one on the street. Bit like the whiff that farmers have got.

        No problem workers at fast food outlets are temporary. It will be fully automated soon.

        Machines will be leased from the parent company, situated abroad, to the franchise, and no profits will be made in this country. The staff wage will be given through an eastern European country business and the lone supervisor will be on temporary secondment from their home country on a rotation basis.

        There will be no tax, at all, paid in this country. Even the delivery trucks will bring their fuel from abroad.

          Christ, what a bunch of sniffy, middle class tossers you are! So what if it’s burger flipping – at least they’ve got the spark to get up, get out and do a job of work. It might not excite YOUR juices, but they have the courage and application to see it as an opportunity, however slim.

          I can’t wait for you to be served by an ex- squaddie either Moussa, because then you’ll come face to face with someone who has meaning and has contributed significantly. The exact opposite to what YOU see in your mirror every day.

    Right. That’s the EU business kicked into the long grass again.

    Now, to get back to the most important issue, so close to my core beliefs.

    It’s littered with get-out clauses :

    So he’ll ‘ask for a mandate from the British people for a Conservative Government to negotiate a new settlement with our European partners in the next Parliament’. So no “Conservative Government” (i.e. another coagulation…), no negotiation.

    And if he does get his “Conservative Government”, we have to wait until he can ‘complete this negotiation’ (no time limit there…) and then ‘hold this referendum within the first half of the next Parliament.’ (after the negotiation finishes…)

    So there’s the potential to hang this one out over two parliaments. Anyone fancy a tenner on the chances of him being there for another two ?

      And no negotiation UNTIL the next parliament… Meanwhile immigration continues. Really, what do they take us for. The lefty New Spectator is full of articles about how wonderful this all is.

    The EU will not renegotiate our membership, nor will they allow us to recover yielded power.
    The only way is to serve a Section 50 notice.

    The EU is not some gentlemen’s club, bound by honour and with some vestige’s of ethics and morality. It is the spawn of a Neo-Stalinlite SSR.

    More bullshit

    He’ll pass off any EU concession, no matter how meager, as a reason for NOT having a referendum

    The politicians WILL NEVER risk losing their chance to get onto the gravy train that is the EU

    Dear Prime Minister

    Many thanks for your most helpful and detailed letter.

    With very great respect I would suggest a few adjustments to your strategy.

    Rather than having a timetable which will do nothing until 2015 and achieve nothing before 2020 might I suggest you engage with our 26 European colleagues now to see whether they will agree to Treaty change ( which I understand would in any event require electoral approval by all individual electorates).

    If you meet now with total rejection then you can negotiate changes which can be incorporated into our 2015 manifesto with a view to a referendum in the same year and possible withdrawal in 2016.

    I await your detailed observations in early course.

    Your obedient servant.

    Tony
