I switched on Radio 4 this morning to hear the Lord's Establishment are demanding Alex Salmond's government and Cameron's provide the voters with more information on the economic consequences of Scotland leaving the UK lest the Scottish voters 'sleepwalk' into leaving the union. Quite. But are we to get this same information on leaving the EU? I doubt it. To my mind the economic arguments have so many points on either side they can never be conclusive. Its a pure political decision in the end. For the Scots do you want to be ruled by the English political elite from London and for the Brits do you want to be ruled by the European political elite from Brussels.
We still need to have a proper independent cost benefit analysis on both issues to clarify the issues involved in both decisions. I am sure we will see something along these lines rushed out for the Scottish vote. You won't be given even a vote on the EU issue. That is the way our elite dictators operate to politically emasculate the British people.
There has been a very pro Thatcher press in club med land. They see they are in the same pickle we were in in 1979, a bloated state sector, over powerful unions, uncompetitive industry. Even Berlusconni has been fulsome in his praise of Maggie. But where is Euroland's Maggie? The Doctor Frau says I'm alright Fritz whilst France's Michael Foot goes on increasing state spending. Bunga bunga man may be their only hope. At least he knows how to party!
