Well Done David!
Well done David, don't listen to anyone who talks about boats or failure to make alliances. Sometimes when you are right you are the only one!
I was relieved to see David Cameron refusing to give in to what must have been intense pressure to give up our rights as a country to support the doomed Euro club of nations.
I don't think the European Nations are aware how fed up the British are with the whole European Union concept and the way we seem to be being subsumed into a superstate that we didn't vote for, that we have no control over, and that we seem to pay even greater sums for.
Talking about voting brings me to two important points. Firstly, when the vote was taken in 1975 a lot of older people voted for the “Common Market” because they never wanted to be at war with Germany again. I know that's true because quite a few I asked gave that as the reason. I voted NO, as many people my age believed that it would mean a steady loss of jobs to countries where salaries were lower and that we would always be putting more money in than we would ever get out as taxpayers.
I think we are right!
The second important point is that a huge proportion of people in the UK today were not even alive to vote in the last referendum, so have never been consulted in any way about the EU. The generation of young people who don't have jobs are entitled to look at the taxpayers billions that are given away to European countries to enable them to compete with us, and ask WHY?
Playing the European game and placing orders for trains abroad while our own train builders go out of business is madness and can only lead to a country that is on its knees. WHY do it?
Playing the European game and allowing our borders to be so porous and human rights so biased against the victims that we are a haven for the worlds criminals. WHY do it?
Now people say the European Union has not been all bad because without it in the UK we wouldn't have had................... precisely WHAT????????
