EU Referendum in April 2016
An interesting insight from the Spectator who have the Prime Minister's ear.
So with a Jezbollah victory for Labour and weakness perceived, the Tory leader wants to get the referendum out of the way. More cynically, I would suggest, with immigration from Syria et al only set to grow, the need to get a vote done before public anger gets too high is becoming more pressing.
In the real world, there should be enough time to organise and get this done. What there is not is enough time to get any real concessions our of the EU leaders when they lurch from currency, Greece and immigration crisis in ever decreasing circles.
The time is perfect to leave the EU for the UK, it is weak and failing and we are better off out of it. It will be hard to convince enough people of this, but all the fundamentals are on the side of the 'leavers' at the moment so the polls will get closer.
