TORY MPS WANT EU REFERENDUM NEXT YEAR – In an astonishing move and certainly in line with public sentiment MPs have all but hijacked a Commons vote in order to force an EU referendum next year.
David Cameron vowed earlier this year that he would provide an EU referendum in late 2017 if he was re-elected in the 2015 General Election. Many, including us at meebal.com, saw this as nothing but a ruse to blackmail the public into voting Conservative in the next General Election.
The instigator to this is none other than Tory MP Adam Afriyie who said that people didn’t trust David Cameron to keep his word and hold a referendum in 2017 – something that meebal.com has maintained since David Cameron announced his plans.
This is of course a direct challenge to David Cameron’s authority and inside sources say he is furious over the covert move to usurp his original plans.
There are a growing number of Tory MPs, such as Adam Afriyie, who feel that the public no longer trust David Cameron and that the Tories are in real danger of losing the next General Election if drastic measures are not taken.
The plan is being back by Tory and Labour Eurosceptics and will force a Commons vote in just five weeks time. If the vote receives sufficient support then the British public will likely see a referendum by October 2014.
Yes, in our view this still remains woefully short and an EU referendum needs to come before the Right of Free Movement takes effect in January 2014 for this would enable Britain, if it elected to pull out of the EU, to close the borders and refuse the hordes of Romanian and Bulgarian economic refugees access to free social services.
Adam Afriyie is of course correct; the public do not trust David Cameron. He is after all completely and utterly detached from reality and hasn’t the slightest inkling as to how the people of Britain feel or how they are suffering due to the austerity measures imposed.
Yes it must be acknowledged that many of Britain’s problems were not created by Mr. Cameron or the Tories but rather the years of uncontrollable spending by the Labour Party – we knew full well when the coalition was formed in 2010 that times ahead would be tough.
However the British public did not expect to see continued interference by the EU and furthermore didn’t expect the Prime Minister to simply roll over like a lap dog for the non-elected EU commissioners. Mr. Cameron, in the eyes of the public, is weak, ineffective, and incompetent.
In addition to these Mr. Cameron is totally against pulling out of the EU – something that Britain’s very salvation and national identity requires if we are to survive and flourish as a proud and independent nation.
So will the British public really have an EU referendum next year? Don’t hold your breath for the Prime Minister is furious and had already made his position perfectly clear and has vowed to stop such a vote at all costs and that he refuses to accelerate the EU referendum he has set out.
Note carefully here that Mr. Cameron is adamant that the British public will NOT get to vote; unless he says so. That in the eyes of Mr. Cameron is how democracy works – he tells the people what to do and what they get; not the other way around as it should be in a democracy.
The issue now is that the Prime Minister will no doubt attempt to veto an amendment to his original plan to provide a referendum in 2017 and sources say that if Adam Afriyie wins he would in fact withdraw the entire legislation.
Yes, it appears that once again our Prime Minister is acting like a petulant child who won’t stand for anything if it’s not to his liking – maybe somebody ought to take the Prime Minister aside and explain carefully what democracy is and the reality of losing the next General Election if he blocks this move.
Open up your diaries and mark November 8 2013 for this is the date that when MPs are to confront the Prime Minister and vote on the issue; which could mirror the vote against him over the missile strikes against Syria.
Mr. Cameron’s supporters state that his is nothing short of a coup and that an EU referendum could not possibly be arranged in less than a year. However, these MPs talk of a ‘renegotiation’ whereas the public and MP Eurosceptics are talking about a simple in/out vote.
Adam Afriyie feels that without positive measures to remove Britain from the grips of the European Union and their continued interference in Britain’s policies, including British justice, it is most likely that the Tory Party will see a humiliating defeat in the next General Election.
By providing an EU referendum it would also lay to rest any fears of UKIP rising further in the polls and stave off any possible threat UKIP poses to the Tory Party election victory.
This situation for Mr. Cameron is not just about the EU for if this vote is successful it will almost certainly pave the way for a challenge to the leadership of the Tory Party; resulting in Mr. Cameron being unseated in almost similar fashion as Margaret Thatcher.
Tory backbencher James Wharton warned that this could be disastrous for the 2017 EU Referendum Bill and in fact might kill it off altogether. Mr. Wharton is one of the EU supporters and feels that Mr. Cameron should be given sufficient time to renegotiate Britain’s position within the European Union. However it appears that Mr. Wharton didn’t bother to listen to the EU President’s remarks only last week when Mr. Barroso announced the Europe would not renegotiate Britain’s position.
If Adam Afriyie achieves sufficient support then the date set for an EU Referendum would be October 23 2014. Yes it is well passed the sell-by-date of the Right of Free Movement but it would allow Britain to take measure to remove any foreign nationals without EU interference.
Many are beginning to feel that Britain might not survive until 2017 if it remains within an organisation that is unaccountable to the taxpayer whilst being solely dependent upon it.
Let’s have a vote Mr. Cameron – let the democratic voice of the people decide for the decision of whether Britain remains is Europe or not should never be the decision of a single individual but rather the collective majority voice known commonly as democracy.
