Lawson Says Leave EU

Four days since UKIP trounced Dave and Lord Lawson has broken ranks to call for Britain to leave the EU:

20130507-084339.jpg “The heart of the matter is that the very nature of the European Union, and of this country’s relationship with it, has fundamentally changed after the coming into being of the European monetary union and the creation of the eurozone, of which – quite rightly – we are not a part. That is why, while I voted ‘in’ in 1975, I shall be voting ‘out’ in 2017. Not only do our interests increasingly differ from those of the eurozone members but, while never ‘at the heart of Europe’ (as our political leaders have from time to time foolishly claimed), we are now becoming increasingly marginalised as we are doomed to being consistently outvoted by the eurozone bloc. So the case for exit is clear.”

Cue dividing lines:

Dave might be campaigning for Britain to stay in Europe, but that doesn’t mean the Tories will…

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
