Lord Lawson calls for Britain's EU Withdrawal via early referendum

Nigel Lawson, probably Britain's most successful post-war Chancellor of the Exchequer, has made the ECONOMIC case for the withdrawal of the UK from the EU, further adding to the problems of his party leader by arguing, quite correctly, that any renegotiation of terms would be entirely pointless!

The Times, carries the first report but cannot be linked as its greed prevents its access from the real world, the Sky News report is here.

I recall a Any Questions programme I attended, from Devon, on which Lord Lawson and Frank Field MP were panellists. Lord Lawson took a similar view then as expressed in todays Times.__I believe Cameron, who is a weak man, is playing for time with yet another promise to the future. But I have seen nothing but scathing comments relating to his lack of candour with people. His goose, to coin a phrase, has been well and truly cooked. The time for him to exit stage left has arrived. There will be no applause for his contribution to the Tory party.

Farage must distance himself and UKIP from the Conservative Party. This talk of deals is not on. The Conservatives are the enemy along with the other two. We cannot afford to lose any referendum on Europe as it will be another generation at least before/if we get another chance to get out of the EU.

We have to have at least Labour or the Conservatives (or better still both)supporting the out campaign to have any chance of success.

The best chance lies with the government failing to get a good enough settlement from the EU and calling a referendum on the terms negotiated.

I hope at least to vote in the referendum before I expire! Could be a long wait.
