Do you think we should pull out of the EU? Have your say… leave your comments below.
It looks like David Cameron might just be getting a feel of the public’s mood over our involvement in the EU after all.
This morning David Cameron ordered all MPs to attend Parliament in an effort to back a Private Members Bill that was recently launched by Tory MP backbencher James Wharton after Nick Clegg, the Liberal Democrat leader and Deputy Prime Ministers refused to allow the Bill to be presented as a Government Bill.
The Bill will enshrine into law that an EU referendum must be provided to the public during 2017 after the Government has renegotiated Britain’s role in Europe.
Both Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband, leader of the Labour Party are now in a precarious position. If they refuse to back the Bill it will almost certainly ruin any chances of being elected to power in the next General Election and will further the divide of the existing Coalition.
The public are about to learn the true nature of the Liberal Democrat Party and the Labour Party, however it is already clear that neither support Britain pulling out of the EU.
David Cameron has made his position clear in that he feels Britain should remain in Europe but with greater controls; especially over our laws.
It appears the public have become despondent with Europe, which comes as little surprise considering the level of interference Europe imposes on the UK. Considering the EU’s grip on our legal system, forcing us to allow mass immigration and the fact that MEPs salaries are extortionately high – all of which the British taxpayer is expected to support; it is little wonder why the public are likely to vote for severing its ties with Europe.
Is this too little, too late? With the impending Right of Free Movement looming many people feel that a referendum on Europe will come too late in order to prevent a flood of immigrants to the UK in 2014. No doubt the taxpayer will once again be hit hard as it has to financially support migrants entering the UK without work.
I feel that David Cameron is clutching at straws as such a Bill will only be effective if the Tory Party is re-elected in the 2015 General Election. It is little wonder why UKIP is continuously surging in the voter polls as they appear to be the only party that will put an end, if the public so wish, to the powers that Brussels has over Britain.
Again we witness the true face of democracy in Britain as it becomes crystal clear that democracy only exists as far as the election and thereafter we are continuously dictated to by the Government we elected.
With the developments of telecommunications and notably the internet; there is simply no excuse as to why the Government cannot introduce an electronic referendum system – not just on Europe but also other political issues that affect the way we live and the costs involved. A system of referendums would, in my view, once again restore democracy in Britain.
