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.”
