Keep EU at arms length
PUBLISHED: 12:06 10 June 2010
I would like to take issue with Matt Gooding’s defence of the EU in your May 27 issue.
It is only because Britain has taken a euro-sceptic approach that we are not involved in the current Eurozone crisis.
Mr. Cameron is quite right to resist the delegation of any further powers to Europe.
We have given away far too much of our sovereignty already.
To say that we need to be ‘in bed’ with other countries in order to do business with them is facile. Switzerland is not a member of the EU but is a properous nation with a high proportion of its exports going to countries which are.
The EU is too big, too inefficient and too wasteful. We should be at arms length.
