We do not have much time left before Cameron comes back waving his sordid bit of paper saying peace in our time, I have renegotiated! It will of course all be a total sham but in the meantime the stay in lot are mobilising their FUD, Fear Uncerainty Doubt campaign.
Politicians love the EU it gives them power without really ever having to face the electorate and huge sums of money for MEPs to employ their Spads plus huge office staff for the bureaucrats and a well paid traing ground for the Cleggs, Huhnes, Kinnocks x 3 of this world.

Who cares where they come down? Its not my department."
