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

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
