Britain should quit European Union - Nigel Lawson

#2
Considering his enthusiasm for the EU when he was chancellor and Howe foreign secretary I find his sudden damascene conversion more than a little astonishing. I believe he and Howe threatened Margaret Thatcher with their joint resignations at one EU summit, a quarter of a century later and he's advocating withdrawal.
His decision that the pound should shadow the deutchmark damns him as any sort of financial guru, or any other sort of expert.
The only useful thing he ever did was to produce Nigella.

The Tories along with Labour are just trying to make the right noises to win back support. They won't go along with it, the noses are to deep in the European money trough for that to happen.

Does anyone, anyone at all, trust David Cameron (or anyone else currently in Westminster) to allow a referendum on EU membership?

Whenever I see Nigel Lawson, all I can think of is that Spitting Image sketch of him squeezing a zit onto a toothbrush and cleaning his teeth with it!


....Didn't he used to be chancellor or something?

I wouldn't trust them to organise a drinking session in a brewery.

The bloated old ponce didn't perhaps get us into the EU, but he did get us deeper into it! He's right though, if we end up paying the full monty into the set in concrete and strangely not negotiable French agro subvention of unwashed peasants scam, then we might as well spray agent orange on all of France and save ourselves a fortune!

A bridge would be nice, a bridge of flames perhaps....and guarded by a fire giant....we could call it Bifrost!
Ahhh yes, We could call this side Asgard and the otherside Midgard.
