Deja-vu, from the French meaning 'already seen' is a compelling experience of 'having already seen that, or 'been there''.
Back in 1999 William Hague gave a speech at the Conservative Party Conference in Blackpool, on the theme of a Common Sense Revolution, a speech which is personally considered probably the best speech he has ever given. Much of the content of that speech is still true today.
He ended with the words:
".....if you believe that our country is unique in the world but is in danger of losing its identity; if you believe in Britain as a healthy democracy, but that the standards of democracy are now being tarnished and diminished;if you believe in Britain as a country where the law is enforced and respected, but that now it is not respected enough;if you believe in Britain as a country that will work with its neighbours but never submit to being governed by anyone else;if you believe in an independent Britain.Then come with me, and I will give you back your country."
It is a great pity that William Hague, along with David Cameron and the Conservative Party, Labour and the Liberal Democrats all now believe in, and campaign for, continued membership of the European Union.
Principles are a wonderful human characteristic, are they not?
From the result of opinion poll after opinion poll it would appear that the majority of the British electorate agree with the sentiments quoted above. One can but therefore trust that they consequently vote for the UK Independence Party on June 4th.
Update: Another opinion poll by The Taxpayers Alliance confirms the anti-EU feeling in the country, so why are the three main parties so deaf?
