‘Cameron wants to kick EU exit issue into long grass’ – UKIP leader — RT Op-Edge

‘Cameron wants to kick EU exit issue into long grass’ – UKIP leader — RT Op-Edge | Euroscepticism in the UK politics | Scoop.it
With a lot of hard feeling swirling around the EU, one thing
many seem agreed on is anger at Brussels.
Martina Marinangeli's insight:

The right wing UKIP Party is the standard bearer of the UK euroscepticism and it made big gains in the last local elections to the detriment of Tories. It's common opinion that one of the main reasons for such a good result would be its position about EU, described by its leader Nigel Farage in this interview. Farage blame Cameron for omitting the EU referendum from the Queen's Speech.

Tory peer and former chancellor claims union has become 'bureaucratic monstrosity' from which the UK should break free
Martina Marinangeli's insight:

Nigel Lawson, chancellor during Margaret Thatcher's government, petrifies Cameron saying Europe "is not for us". He sustains Prime Minister won't win substantial reforms on UK position in EU from the meeting with the other European leaders. The respected Lord expresses a common idea inside the Conservative Party, and jeopardises Cameron's leadership.
