Just a quick comment on 'the Cameron speech' and remarks by Fraser Nelson on the Coffee House here. One section of Fraser's comment stood out like the proverbial 'sore thumb'.

"I was impressed with his repeatedly positioning himself against “big government” – listing the harm that it inflicts on a society, sapping responsibility and providing perverse incentives which run against the grain of human nature.“The more that society can do, the less we will need government to do,”

So if Cameron does not believe in 'big government' how does he equate this with membership of the EU? If Cameron believes in 'handing power back to the people' how does this equate with giving total control of the people to a supra-national state, which is what Lisbon will do?

Reminds me of the 'pushmi-pullyu' animal - you know the one that can't decide which way to go?
