EUROSCEPTICS WANT TRADE ONLY DEAL WITH EUROPE – Pressure is being piled on David Cameron to come up with a clear manifesto on Britain’s involvement with Europe and how he plans to claw back powers from Brussels.
Despite Cameron’s insistence of an in/out EU referendum in 2017; on the provision the country provides a majority Tory vote in the 2015 General Election, no plans have yet been drafted and Cameron continues to refuse to detail exactly what approach he intends to take with Brussels or what he will be negotiating.
Of course in a democracy Cameron would not be allowed to get away with such an off-handed approach to what the people want but democracy has long been lost in this once fine country.
Tory Eurosceptics are now set to confront David Cameron by calling for the UK to pull out of the single market altogether; something that those in favour of remaining in the EU say will devastate British businesses.
A new pressure group, Business for Britain, is said to be drafting plans that it will release by November this year. The manifesto will be designed to take a tougher stance on the EU. The primary author of the plan is Tory strategist Matthew Ellitor, who ran the No To AV campaign against the Liberal Democrats in which they wanted electoral reform in 2011.
Business for Britain wants to change the EU landscape so that it has no control over the UK but is rather simply a trading partner; that is the trade of goods and services will be able to move freely under the agreement.
This would put Britain in a similar situation to that of Switzerland where it has open access to EU markets but is no way required to comply with any regulations or laws Brussels imposes on other EU member states.
Some insiders have openly spoken out saying the Prime Ministers should not feel threatened by this development but rather encouraged that the public would unlikely call for a complete opt-out of the EU come 2017.
With the level of corruption and open theft of public funds within the European Union, not forgetting the EU’s non-elected members imposing laws that affect the British taxpayer, I have to say that pulling out of the EU appears the only sensible measure.
However, having purely a ‘trade’ agreement is an amicable solution but I have my reservations as to whether Cameron will consider this as an option.
Where do all the failed politicians go? That’s right they are on the first plane out to the EU where they are awarded positions with vast salaries attached and often produce no benefit to the taxpayer. What can we do to remove these leeches? Nothing is the answer, because currently the EU does not answer to the British taxpayer through an electoral system.
Again I feel the only reason that Cameron and all other supporter of the EU, both past and present, are simply in it for the financial gain; let’s be honest with Cameron’s track record of failure what company in their right mind would employ him?
Whilst Cameron and his Euro supporters may not like this potential solution, for obvious reasons, it is quite clearly an amicable one and Brussels will have no choice but to either accept it or Britain will pull out altogether – either way this solution would be a win, win for Britain and the austerity strapped taxpayer.
Do you think a simplified trade agreement would be amicable for Britain or do you think Britain should pull out of the EU entirely? Please leave your comments below.
