I commend Boris Johnson for his approach to “blowing away the myths” and giving people the facts. I have previously argued on this blog for all the options both for and against to be presented simply, fairly and openly; I have also argued for the policy options to be properly costed and independently risk assessed.
Given that Europe is committed to increasing federalism and bureaucracy, I agree with Boris Johnson that we must be ready to leave if we don’t get what we want. Personally, I struggle to see David Cameron able to make much progress; so for that reason I think that the UK should have an early referendum.
As a committed European but anti federalism and anti-bureaucracy, I am not ready to give up yet. I want to see all the arguments in a proper public debate.
What do you think?
