50 years on, the EU champagne has lost
CELEBRATING a flop is a tough business,
as every theatrical impresario can tell you. the audience is cool, the
critics hostile, the cast demoralised and the drinks at the first-night
party flow mainly to drown sorrows.
The 50-year 'celebration' of the Rome
treaty has been rather like that, with the same flavour of forced
cheerfulness. perhaps strangers embraced in the streets, maybe there are
fireworks up and down the land. But if so I didn't notice.
The ode to gloom no doubt owes
something to an opinion poll which shows that 41 per cent of people in
Britain think we would be better off out of the EU, against 25 per cent
who believe we are better off in
IN TERMS OF SIMPLE ECONOMICS THE
CASE FOR LEAVING IS CAST IRON.
To have an effective influence on other
people's affairs you have to allow them to influence your own. Which is
what has happened, with consequences which may, without undue
exaggeration be deemed consistently appalling.
Try as one might, it is hard to think
of anything in our own affairs which has been better decided because of
/proposals/instructions or anything else
GO ON, I DEFY YOU TO DO IT.

The face of innocence made an
appearance we in former Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, a key adviser

Strange to relate, that actually meant
what it said. Ever closer could only mean ever more integrated, ever
more centralised and all that has led up to EU

this out at the time and repeated it during the
 Common Market Referendum

standard of official lies was unmatched until Tony Blair took up the
issue of Iraq.

[We wish a number of British Pro-EU
MEP's particularly of the so-called Conservative variety would at last
think again about their confidence in changing the EU as they are so
taken up with what they claim they have achieved and have given the
opinion that they have all the time in the world. Not month's if the

The intellectual case against the euro
remains as strong as ever. It cannot make sense for the European Central
Bank to set the same rate of interest for countries with inflation as
for those facing recession.
