UKIP councillor: Cameron's "smoke and mirrors"
7:00am Thursday 31st January 2013 in News
THURROCK’S first UKIP councillor has called David Cameron’s announcement “smoke and mirrors”.
He said: “They don’t know what they are going to discuss with the Europeans. The shopping list Cameron is going to go in with, the Europeans won’t discuss.
"The Europeans want a fiscal and federal union. It’s like going into a shop that sells furniture and asking for bathroom equipment.
“They’re dressing it up to the British public to say they can take back powers when they can’t.
“Article 52 of the Lisbon treaty means it’s not complicated for members to leave the EU if they want, but Cameron is complicating things by starting this two year process.”
“We need to be out of it altogether.”
