Unfortunate Lines to Take this Week

Some rather ill-timed lines to take on Europe from CCHQ this week:

“The best outcome for Britain is our membership of a reformed European Union. But we must recognise that consent for Britain’s membership of the European Union, and all the ways that it’s changed, has become wafer-thin. And politicians have to recognise this fact rather than try and brush it under the carpet.

 The best thing to do when you have a problem is to confront that problem. And we have a plan for how we make changes to the European Union, how we make changes to Britain’s membership, how we secure Britain’s membership of a reformed European Union and settle this issue.”

One disgruntled Tory complains to Guido “we’re deciding what side we’re on in the referendum before we even call it”. Over to Maggie:

No, no, no…
