EU: Mr Cameron, take it or leave it!

25 Jan 2013
Ref: 05 2013

At a time when the European Union needs to strengthen the cooperation between its Member States more than ever before, the UK Prime Minister has today called for less cooperation. Mr Cameron's selfish strategic positioning of the UK within the EU is not in the EU's interest; nor is it in the national interest of the UK. This is akin to a tandem bicycle where one rider is moving forward while the other is going backwards. EU membership is like any other agreement: it comes with benefits and obligations. Under political pressure at home, Mr Cameron is questioning the whole EU project and wants to start a debate on the basic principles of the European Union such as solidarity and economic integration, by asking people to vote for or against the EU project as it has been developed over the last fifty-five years
