Cameron staked his reputation on a referendum after renegotiation and repatriation of powers we’d previously surrendered to the EU. But, surprise it seems transfer of powers is a one way street, the totalitarian EU won’t be giving up anything.
We need to decide whether or not we want to be a part of a federal Europe. We have no influence in the direction the EU is headed since it is overwhelmingly run by people who have a totally different objective to us. We just need to decide if we want to go to the same place they do.
The in/out referendum will be a choice between democracy and surrendering democracy for ever, it’s now even less likely that the political elite will allow the plebs a vote on this.
A YouGov poll last week suggested that for now voters are up for staying in by 44 per cent to 36 per cent, and they would vote 57 to 22 to stay in the event of a successful renegotiation.
I am absolutely fascinated by all these polls that the mainstream media keep quoting. Are they taken from EU immigrants who have a vested interest in the UK staying in the EU? I personally do not know anyone who would vote to stay in the EU; in fact more and more people I know are even stating they would not stay in even if the deal was renegotiated. I know a hell of a lot of people. Extraordinary.
However a new poll
The Observer/Opinium poll found that 48% of people would “definitely” or “probably” vote to leave the EU, with just 37% saying they would definitely or probably vote to stay in.
The tory elites have only themselves to blame for their party’s europe schism; had they been honest with this nation’s population and sought our consent for agreements made in our name – Cameron and every future leader will be forced to decide between two masters.
There’s a really simply solution to this. Let’s ask the audience. Which makes you wonder why they don’t want to.
I find it interesting that those who want out of the EU are labelled Racist Bigots by the press, but that label isn’t applied to the Scottish people who want out of the UK.
I think Winston Churchill summed up our best policy toward the EU (not Europe):
We see nothing but good and hope in a richer, freer, more contented
European commonality. But we have our own dream and our own task. We are
with Europe, but not of it. We are linked but not compromised. We are
interested and associated but not absorbed. 15th April, 1930
The date is key–the forerunner of a political + economic union was starting to emerge with Germany at the head. History does repeat nicht wahr?
