|PM DAVID CAMERON|
UPDATE: 25 January 2013 - Well, well, well, Brussels really showing its teeth now. They threatening the UK to fine it a £250,000 a day because they haven't applied their full law on gas and electricity. According to the Department of Energy it would make the electricity and gas bills even higher. Or is it another story trying to justify another increase?
If any one still had any doubts about getting out of the EU they surely must change their opinion now. Furthermore, Brussels will also control the press and journalists will be fined heavily if they don't comply with their rules. Well, free press was always the mark of the Western World.
IT WAS NOTHING BUT A VOTE CATCHING SPEECH AND FULL OF HOLLOW PROMISES.
The long awaited speech of David Cameron was finally delivered. Yet, there was nothing new in it. Everybody is aware that Mr Cameron does not want to get out of the EU.
He did make a great point about given the public the referendum they had been demanded for a long time but it is not the straight forward IN/OUT referendum. He still wants to sneak in his hopefully newly achieved condition. He still thinks he can persuade Brussels to give Britain back certain powers which they took off this country. He couldn’t have heard or listen to the announcement from Brussels that they will not do anything like that because otherwise all the other countries will demand changes in their rules as well.
Even after Merkel quickly reassured David Cameron that she will try and negotiate on behalf of Britain to change Britain’s mind not to exit the EU. The point here is that Merkel wants to keep Britain in the EU for not to lose the contribution and if necessary another bail-out. It is not only Merkel’s negotiation but the other 28 countries have also to agree. This makes it most unlikely. Furthermore, Merkel knows if Britain exits the EU others will follow.
However, whether Merkel, David Cameron or Mr Obama want to keep Britain in the EU or not it is the people who should have given the opportunity for a long time to decide. The Conservative promised to give an IN/OUT referendum in their last election manifesto but as all their other promises it was not kept. It was promised again for March 2011 but again nothing happen.
The public elects a party to govern the country but it is the public’s wishes the leader supposed to carry out. It is wrong that David Cameron thinks Britain should be kept in the EU and therefore ignores the people’s wishes.
The speech today was a waste of ink, paper and time. The people knew his attention already and to tangle a carrot in front of the public’s noses about an in/out referendum but also with some included decision of new regulations and after the next election was all totally unsatisfactory. The public is not that naïve any more when is David Cameron delivering a speech with concrete facts and stands by it?
People wanted an in/out referendum now and not after he signed another treaty soon for the next seven years. Brussels interfered enough with the Law and justice which cost a fortune on legal aid and benefit; with the fishery to throw dead fish overboard because it was already over the quota; to give French fishermen the right to fish in British waters; having to pay Child benefit for children not even living in Britain; fruit having to be unformed seizes and tonnes of fruit being wasted; and many more other crazy ideas and made law but the best is yet to come. Brussels plans to control the press and journalists will be find if they step over the rules.
BRITAIN GETS ALL THAT FOR ITS EU MEMBERSHIP WHICH COST A FORTUNE AT A TIME WHEN FAMILIES HAVING TO GO TO FOOD BANKS TO SURVIVE.
The people want out of it and at the same time want to save the money since Britain is in an economic recession and yet David Cameron refuses. This policy does not make sense.
WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON?
