Douglas Carswell post about an article written by Fraser Nelson in the News of the World (pay per view) in which the latter argues for repatriation of powers in return for providing aid to Ireland.
What is it that journalists (so-called) - and it seems certain Eurosceptic (so-called) politicians - do not understand about 'repatriation of powers'? Were that to happen, it would open the floodgates whereby other member states would want to do likewise, resulting in the disintegration of the EU - and its aim of total economic and political integration - and this the EU ain't going to allow happen.
It also begs the question why a Eurosceptic (so-called) politician should even begin to welcome such a suggestion as that of Fraser Nelson's. Perhaps these Eurosceptic Conservative politicians have caught 'Cameronitis' - a disease whereby one appears Eurosceptic, but in fact is quite the reverse.
Boris spot-on about the head-choppers & crane-hangers
