Mr Cameron is attempting to renegotiate our terms of E.U. membership. They are the same terms and conditions that previous Prime Ministers (of ALL parties) have agreed and signed up to. In other words, the E.U. have not imposed terms and conditions on our membership, without the full consent of our Government.
But the UK Government have not sought the agreement of the electorate. The last (and only) time that the British public have voted on our membership was in 1975, when the electorate agreed to join a trading block, not a Political Union.
Past Prime Ministers gave away our sovereignty with the result Parliament no longer has full control of our laws, immigration, borders, energy policy, fishing rights, employment laws and financial matters. Indeed most of the elements which constitute a national state.
Our membership of the E.U. is having a profound effect on every person living and working in Somerset (indeed for every British Citizen).
For far too long senior politicians have denied that our membership is flawed and have denied the fact that E.U. policies are having a detrimental effect on our citizens. From housing, employment, health, environment, cost of living, and our way of life. The referendum of our continued E.U. membership is, without doubt, the most important decision for our country’s future.
Below are links to some articles from the press that highlight the futility of the renegotiation and the danger of remaining in the EU.
