"There was general support for Andrea Leadsom MP’s call for an incoming new government after a General Election to be able to repeal EU legislation in the UK which that government does not think is good for our country. There was general agreement that we need powers back, and a new relationship that restores democratic freedoms lost through the past government’s signature on the Nice, Amsterdam and Lisbon Treaties.”
Nice statement, Mr. Redwood – but how exactly can that be accomplished? In the Lisbon Treaty are you able to point me to the clause that permits repatriation of powers? How, exactly, is it intended to get this ‘new relationship’ with the EU? Methinks that Andrea is ‘swinging the lead, some’?
Please do not submit that what is wanted can be achieved by ‘negotiation’ – we both know that that ain’t going to happen. If you believe it will, then please set out your reasoning?"I see that David Cameron - aka Dear Leader David il Cam - granted an 'interview' with the political editor of the Telegraph, Patrick Hennessy. The picture used - together with the opening paragraph - had me searching for my sick-bag! The photograph of Cameron wearing a 'troubled frown', coupled with the Red Box being prominently featured is pure 'spin'!
We then hear that, contrary to all we have been told in the past, that Cameron and his party are not just 'eurosceptic', they are now 'moderately' eurosceptic! (I really must remember where I put the damn sick-bag! - the need is becoming more pressing!)
Afterthought: Readers will be relieved to know that by the end of the article, I found my sick-bag just in the 'Nick' of time!
