In respect of Open Europe it is becoming increasingly obvious that one of their spokesmen, Mats, will shortly become a non-Persson if he continues to write the rubbish that he does – and just has.
“But, most significantly, it illustrated that what both “outists” and Europhiles tell us – that the UK is faced with an “all or nothing” choice in Europe with no path in between – is too simplistic. Indeed, last week’s deal represented that “third way” that we’re told doesn’t exist.”
Did not that chap in France warn Cameron that clawing back powers was not possible as a power ceded was ceded for life? Just what is it that Mats Persson does not understand of a subject on which he presents himself as an expert?
In order for some of us to be ‘educated’ perhaps Mats – or some other idiot – will explain to us the ‘mechanics’ of this “third way”; how it can be conducted; the outcome they hope to achieve and the time-frame in which they envisage it happening.
Yup, sure Britain can renegotiate their terms of membership – but it will necessitate invoking Article 50 of the TEU to do it.
