What thoughts do we have about this? The PM is about to make a big speech on Europe. He has a Tory party that is divided on the issue. In one corner there are the anti- Europe lot who would like him to take the UK out of the EU. On the other side are the business orientated Tories who would probably hate this to happen. Then there is UKIP which threatens to take Tory votes at the next election because it will damage trade. There is talk of a referendum about pulling out of the EU. And of course UKIP will never play the immigration card will they...
He would obviously like to do a Thatcher - negotiate a special deal that favours the UK. But the EU is much bigger now. And economic times are hard. Is he really going to get away with saying "give me what i ask or i will take the UK out"
Looks like one of those damned what ever he does situations to me. What do you think?
