Same old pretences.

    David Cameron is to warn this week that leaving the EU would be an irreversible decision with consequences for the UK’s economic and national security.

    The prime minister is seeking to tread a delicate line between the “In” and “Out” arguments over EU membership as he tries to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the bloc ahead of a referendum in 2016 or 2017.

    Our leader, astride the fence as usual, pity it is not an electric fence we might see some action.

    He will be happy with the crumbs his EU pals will throw to him while magnifying them into something much bigger. He is simply going through the motions. The Times is reporting he will hold the referendum next June if his renegotiation "goes well". Apparently his pals have said it should be held without delay because they are expecting another migration crisis next summer. They wouldn't want that to influence it would they? I expect he will hold it when they tell him to.

    Well he's only doing what all other mainstream leaders would do if they were in power. At least he can't be accused of having had to submit to a humiliating climb down by his own party as Corbyn did. Still, I expect there are other climb downs in the offing. His pals won't fail to come up with more.
