As EU crumbles Britain's Tories finally consider a referendum!

There is a quite extraordinary column on the Coffee House area of the Speccie website today, linked here. Strangely none of the regular comment posters seem to find much particularly anachronostic in the timing of the speculation contained in the piece.

Has nobody in the UK yet fully grasped that the EU is on the verge of almost complete and total disintegration?

Have they abandoned reading my blog?

The problem is that the bugger is taking a long time dying. Too long I would agree.

And yes, I do read your blog.

We should no longer have a referendum. Nothing short of a withdrawl from the EU is acceptable now.

Time to up the ante... if they want our votes and then I wouldn't trust Cameron.

A referendum may result in staying in the EU - we are lost for ever if that happens.

We have to come to a sensible arrangement with our European friends - but we can not be governed by them.

The reported 'hint' from Cameron merely confirms the state of shit-scaredness since they saw the 13% vote achieved by UKIP last week.

He's wasting his time, of course, because he blew any trust when he lied last time.

We'll keep on voting UKIP, in ever greater numbers, until we finally get out (if there's still something out of which we can get, of course).

Anonymous. There are many people who, having tasted Ukip from the inside, are certainly never going to vote for this rabble...Have you ever wondered why the Tory Eurosceptics have never joined them?

That may be true but, for anyone who believes that the EU is the 'master issue' which must be solved before anything else, then 'lending' votes to UKIP is the only option available right now.
If that has the effect of changing the direction of the major parties, or establishing a more professional anti-EU party, then that's all the better but, right now, it's Hobson's Choice.
