EU in or out?

Is anybody REALLY going to read this? I doubt it.

However, as a voter who is naturally Liberal inclined, sympathetic to socialist ideals, but hates the Labour Party, yet has a sympathy toward "One Nation" Convervativism, I would like to add my bit. I think that David Cameron is a sterling Prime Minister, particularly in the light of his stand on Europe. He's probably stuck his neck out a lot further than he would have liked, but I take my hat off to him for it.
Let's face it, it's all propaganda in the end, but even the most honest pundits say that nobody knows what will become of the UK should we vote to leave. I just realise that I have a lot to be thankful for personally so far and that I loathe the Little Englander mentality for wanting to be out. I'll bet that most of those who want out haven't lived abroad much (and listen to The Archers). "I know what I like and I like what I know...bloody foreigners. Hooray Henry"! ...as they swig their gin and tonics at the golf club. Maybe David Cameron is secretly one of those people, but so far he's earned my respect. Boris Johnson is a huge disappointment. An opportunist no less. A Scumbag dare I say it.

Warm regards,
David

Re: EU in or out?

This thing won't edit my post and I'm not a good typist. If anybody is bothered to read this, I meant to type the word "Conservatism" in the last post. Doesn't look good does it? It's all good. I can say that David Cameron loves Donald Trump. Nobody gives a damn because nobody will read this!

Reading you self authored profile I see that you are a very very disturbed person, first you claim to be something of a pathological Marxist then you volunteer your admiration for David Cameron who has achieved absolutely nothing for this country from his so called EU renegotiations, none of which are guaranteed by EU treaty and as such have no legal standing under EU law.
If you like the EU set up so much perhaps you should consider relocating to somewhere east of Calais for your future happiness and personal contentment.

Re: EU in or out?

I can't understand how you can have liberalist ideas and are an advocate one nation conservativism and admire Cameron at the same time - surely that is a contradiction in terms. Cameron has not done a single solitary thing for one nationism - he is divisive and elitist. He has allowed the rich to get away without paying tax - he is allowed a housing bubble in the guise of growth - and lied consistently about what he will do - he has contradicted himself on numerous occasions - what is sterling about his reign of appalling decisions? He and his ghastly mate Osborne have made more of mess of the economy that was thought possible and continue to try to frighten the public with their ridiculous and untested speculation about what a disaster it will be to leave the EU - WHEN THEY DON'T KNOW AND WILL NOT KNOW UNTIL WE LEAVE!  Of course they want to stay as they obviously have a vested interest.  This government has been appalling and should be ashamed of it's record of cuts,  targeting the poor and those without power, starving Health and Social Care of funds with the agenda of privatisation by stealth of the NHS and Education. Flogging off anything they can get their hands on ie Royal Mail for next to nothing, now Land Registry - all done in attempt to boost the treasury - it hasn't worked.  These cuts have achieved nothing - we still have a deficit and we are still borrowing vast sums of money - so much for rebalancing the economy. All their machinations , economic gymnastics and boasts of a strong equal economy have come to nothing - they have lied and cheated from the minute they came into power, and I for one, long to see the back of them.
As for Boris - he is a ruthless self-seeker with unbridled ambition, with his silly contrivances, buffoonery, and so-called witty repartee, which will hopefully be his undoing. I just hope to goodness we don't end up with him as Prime Minister [ as that is what he is aiming for] and Trump in the Whitehouse - what a win-double they would make - both embarrassing and crass!
As for leaving the EU - we can manage without an undemocratic, unelected commission in Brussels and Strasgourg deciding how I should live. I am not a little Englander but feel, historically as a nation we have been able to manage very well as an individual country.  We should be able to stand on our own feet and should be given the chance to make our own way and trade with whoever we please.  I do not want to be part of a federal state over which we have no control. I do not want to be part of the Eurozone and I am glad we are not.  I want to be free of the shackles of the EU.
I did read your post and I am sure many of the regular posters will have done the same. We all tend to accept that people are welcome to their opinions - we supposedly live in a free country which means we can speak freely!

Re: EU in or out?

Mary,

You are right and I fear we are going to have that double ticket! Be interesting to see how if it pans out - if it makes for an independent Britain and a calmer more prosperous world with the traditional barriers removed bar Islam, it has to be better than what we are saddled with now!
