Peter Hitchens in The Mail today has a tilt at the EU today, and takes a swipe at the Tories as well. Of them, he writes:
When it comes to action, the Tory Party will continue to support the EU because they have been committed to it since the Sixties, and cannot admit that this was a mistake.He adds that he will continue, week by week, to suggest ways in which you might be able to ensure that they never need to ask that question.
But they also recognise how unpopular it is, which is why they pretend to be hostile and invented 'Euroscepticism' to console disgruntled voters. The longer this goes on, the harder it will be to unscramble. My advice is not to be diverted by campaigns for a referendum that will get us nowhere.
It is to consider, very carefully, whether you will be able to look your children and grandchildren in the face when, 20 years hence, they ask: "What did you do to stop the country being taken over by a foreign power?"
