CONCERNS OVER UKIP HINTS AT CAMERON CHANGING THE LAW TO ALLOW AN EU REFERENDUM – Things appear to be getting desperate for the Tory lead coalition as over 100 hundred Conservative MPs urge David Cameron to back legislation on an EU referendum.
As the UK take to the ballot box in the Local Elections today there are growing fears that the public are going to back the UKIP who has vowed that if elected in the General Elections that they would pull out of the EU and effective put Britain back in control of its own laws, which would enable better control over immigration, welfare and a plethora of other issues where the EU currently have full control.
Just days ago David Cameron unleaded his ‘big dog’ and pro-EU supporter, Ken Clarke who attacked the UKIP has ‘closet racists’.
It appears that the Government is more than a little concerned at the rising tide of the UKIP which has been fueled by the EU’s ever increasing reach and interference in UK laws and Government policy that many believe the current Government supporting for their own gain.
There is a growing anger among the public and when you look at situations, such as the known terrorist Abu Qatada, where the Government is unable to deport him due to EU legislation; it is little wonder that the polls are suggesting a 22% upward swing in public favour of the UKIP.
The results today will give a clear and unequivocal indication as to the current mood of the population and while Cameron insists he will hold a referendum on Europe in 2017, providing he is elected at the General Election in 2015, many feel the damage to the country will be so entrenched that it could take decades to put right the devastation.
Ahead of today’s local elections David Cameron has reinforced his commitment on a referendum in an attempt to stave off a UKIP defeat. Yesterday David Cameron indicated that he was prepared to consider legislation that would guarantee an EU referendum even though he, and the Conservative Party, feels that pulling out of the EU would do more harm than good from Britain.
It’s not just our membership in the EU, although the EU is one of the primary reasons, as some see it, why the UK is unable to control immigration and welfare to a far better degree. The looming cloud of the EU’s Right of Free Movement is approaching fast and as the Government still refuses to release forecast projects to the number of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants entering the UK the public perception is that either the Government simply doesn’t have a clue or that the figures are so high it could result in severe public unrest.
The UKIP has promised, if elected in the 2015 General Election, to put a stop to this debacle by pulling out of the EU and effectively closing the borders.
On yet another EU issue is our Health Care system, where many feel that this is just used and abused by any foreigner walking through the door. Senior doctors have continuously warned the Government of the ‘Tourist’ health care abuse that is costing the taxpayer tens of millions a year as hospitals are seeing an increasing trend of people flocking to the UK for free medical.
The problems that UK citizens face today are many, wide and varied and many are beginning to view the EU’s involvement as detrimental to the well-being of the UK and its citizens.
Come tomorrow, when the dust settles, many believe that David Cameron will be facing the stark reality that the 2015 General Election will not see a vote that will return him to power, either through a majority or coalition.
The fight is afoot and Cameron is attacking the UKIP with everything he’s got from admonishing Nigel Farage for not vetting party candidates, many of whom are supposedly British National Party affiliates, to calling the UKIP a bunch of ‘racist fruitcakes’.
It will extremely interesting, considering the UKIP’s stance on the EU as to whether this item alone will be enough to secure a win in today’s local elections.
What are your feelings towards the EU, should we pull out? Would you vote for the UKIP in order to achieve an exist from Europe? Have your say… leave your comments below.
