Since about midday Friday I have been ill with 'flu. A fairly mild 'flu but I have had a continuous headache, ache all over and all I want to do is sleep. In the hours I have been awake I read After the Coalition by a group of Conservative MPs.
The book was published in 2011, so is not absolutely up to date. And my illness gave a bilious sheen to the pages. But there were many interesting ideas.
As a nation, Britain has always been suspicious of the EU project. The vision of a United States of Europe does not appeal. We did well to stay out of the euro, and to secure a rebate. Nevertheless, as a country we are not yet ready for complete withdrawal...
Which implies that the authors can envisage a time when we will be ready for complete withdrawal.
Possibly after the Euro elections next year.
