..you have it made! Or so they say. I see another alleged leading Conservative has come out (whoops) and said that the UK must leave the EU. In this case it is Michael Portillo, a media luvvie and wet as can be in many respects.
Mr Portillo suggested Mr Cameron’s promise of an in-out referendum on membership after 2015 was an “insincere ploy”.
“I would vote No and fervently hope that the British have more guts than those who govern us, and more than those who govern us think we have,” he said.
The intervention, in an article for The Times, comes days after Lord Lawson, who served as chancellor under Baroness Thatcher, argued there was now a “clear” case for withdrawal, and the economic benefits would “substantially outweigh the costs”.
The Prime Minister has been struggling to rein in his party after the UK Independence Party gained nearly 150 seats in last week’s local elections. However, demands from Eurosceptic backbenchers for the Queen’s Speech to include a referendum bill were ignored yesterday.
Cameron is out of his depth. He is committed to keeping the UK INSIDE the EU and yet, as Portillo points out, this cannot happen without continued loss of national sovereignty. I sense a change in the UK body politic as the case for LEAVING the EU becomes an unstoppable force and it will sweep away weaklings like Cameron. The UK will leave the EU, sooner or later, but the screams from those with vested interests to keep us subjugated within the tyranny will grow higher.
