Michael Portillo on Britain and the EU

Michael Portillo on Britain and the EU

Former Conservative Cabinet Minister Michael Portillo makes some interesting observations about Britain’s relationship with the EU in The Times this morning: “Nigel Lawson says that he would vote in a referendum for Britain to leave the European Union. So would I.”

Believing “the UK is unhappy in the EU”, Michael discusses the “disaster” of the Euro, a lack of democracy and Britain’s vision in comparison to that of many other European countries. Michael gives his thoughts on senior ministers: “they whinge about Europe but don’t have the self-confidence to pull out” and on the British public: “fooled into believing they were joining a European club.. our unhappiness mounts.”
