The Eurosceptic MP’s within the Tory party have been working very hard for many years, supported by organisations such as the Adam Smith Institute, Better off Out et al, to reverse the control of the EU over this country.
We have to be honest and accept that to date we are losing the fight, our new government has now belatedly declared that they wish to stay in the EU. Many of us who voted Tory believed they would give us a referendum, or at least reverse some of the control that is exerted by Brussels. The reality is ‘No’ to a referendum and Brussels continuing to increase it’s control over our country.
The danger facing the UK is that if we go into the next election without a referendum on the EU we will find ourselves facing a complete loss of sovereignty and with no way back. The electorate will tire of eurosceptic’s who talk the talk but achieve nothing and will simply accept that the UK is now part of the EU.
The inevitable result of this scenario taking place is the UK becoming several federal regions within the EU, a total loss of our sovereignty and our Parliament residing in Brussels and Berlin.
It is now time for the Tory Eurosceptics in the Commons, the Lords and MEP’s to take action by declaring we must have a referendum before the next election and unless the government agree to this demand they will resign the Tory whip.
This would be a hugely powerful weapon, I do not believe the government could ignore it, and if they did they would lose any opportunity of winning a majority at the next election.
There are possibly 20/30 MP’s who could take this step, this is a considerable number and would make them a very strong group within parliament. They would have the opportunity to work with other Eurosceptic organisations/ pressure groups building a powerful case to present to the Country at the next election.
We are in the ‘last chance saloon’, the third party (Libdems) are on the ropes, it is time for the Tory Eurosceptic MP’s, MEP’s and Lords to step forward and put ‘Country before Party’ and so rescue us from the nightmare that is the EU.
