So, there won’t be a referendum on the EU in the UK. Quelle surprise: like the writing wasn’t on the wall. Its not the EU the tories object to: its the referendum. Can you imagine, the public actually having a say? Who said they could? What do they know anyway?
But, in as much as UK trade is tied in with the rest of Europe, its all water under the bridge now. We can’t sever our ties like it or not: we’re in there up to the neck, bejeesus!
