According to today's Daily Mail,
"Sir John Major warns Conservative Eurosceptics to keep quiet or Britain could end up leaving EU"
Doesn't he see the total lack of logic in his remark? In case he hasn't yet realised, the Eurosceptics want to leave the EU, and on the basis of what he says, they should make as much noise as possible!
He continues by saying that
"they are undermining David Cameron’s attempts to claw back powers from Brussels"
Surely the situation is the exact opposite. If our EU partners know that we are likely to pull out, and that we are not bluffing, one imagines that they are more likely to make concessions to keep us in. After all, we all know that, in broad terms, they need us more than we need them, and that if we leave certain aspiring members might be less interested in joining.
Let's hope that the Conservative Eurosceptics keep up the pressure.
