EUthanasia

If the 'Blue Mob' get in, they are not going 'to get powers back'.

The very nature of the Grand European Project means that it can't give powers back as to do so would threaten the rationale of it's very existence. And before you go down the "it's no longer a treaty it's the law" line, bear in mind that when Wilson offered the 1975 referendum on leaving the EEC, Parliament had "ratified" our membership in April of that same year.

The powers in Brussels make no secret of this fact therefore sooner or later, Ol' Cast Iron is going to have to face the choice of either going along with the current European Integration project or getting out.

No 'ifs' or 'buts'. The UK isn't going to get anything back from the EU as to do so would force a 'reset' of the EC Councils core philosophy as espoused by d'Estaing and continued by his successors.

It is disengenuous on the part of David Cameron to pretend that under his leadership huge swathes of EU law will simply be ignored or somehow disappear into the 'ether' (the matter in which light was supposed to travel in).

As much as DC tries to hold both wings of the Party together when it comes to Europe, sooner or later the dancing on the head of the pin will have to stop and he will have to accept the fait accompli that is Europe or get out... Why am I telling you this, well because clouds of pragmatism seem to have blow from Iceland, along with the ash, onto my head. I truly, with my whole heart, despise the EU and I certainly make no secret of this whenever the floor is given. But, the Tories are the only thing resembling anything remotely right-wing in this election (Labour, LibDems, Greens, BNP - they are all left wing) so my pernicious vote is standing in the balance. Either it goes to the Tories or it does not. I am more than aware that what currently constitutes the Conservative Party is nothing conservative whatsoever. But it appears that this is all we have in this very troubling monoglot Fabian world. Where do we cast our allegiance when the receptors have no intent of using it? We are in a no-mans land really; every election is a defining moment for a country but not anymore. Not as long as the bulk of sovereign power lays in Brussels with the EU (notice the oxymoron) - is a vote for the Tories a means to an end or an end altogether? Can we trust them to swing that mighty Trident of the British Parliament like it was swung 60 years ago? Or will it simply be left in the English channel to rust and be withered away by the waves of time.

Blue Labour or New Labour... perhaps it doesn't matter when powers are in the hands of the great Eye in Brussels. UKIP are not the last hope of getting the UK out of the EU. UKIP are the last hope of getting the UK out of the EU politically. In the mid 1600's men fought and died for the right to vote for our political leaders - no-one voted for the 27 EU commissioners who are our political masters now. In the early 1900's women also won the right to vote for our political leaders - no-one voted for the 27 EU commissioners who are our political masters now. Whatever this Orwellian construct is, it is not permanent.
