Why we need a referendum soon
THE three most popular UK parties, namely the Conservatives, Labour and UKIP all, to a greater or lesser degree, want our relationship with the EU changed.
Only the Liberal Democrats, and it seems Keith Rossiter, want closer social, fiscal and political integration.
There are very many views on this subject ranging from far left to far right in the political spectrum and he may well be proved correct when he says there will not be a referendum in this Parliament or with Labour, if returned to power, in the next either. So far "cast iron guarantees" don't seem to have helped.
We can only hope he is wrong as it is past the time when the people of this country are given the chance to choose how to govern themselves; via our own, elected parliament, who we can at least get rid of every five years if necessary, or by an unelected, overseas parliament over which we have no control.

One can only hope he is wrong with his prediction as continuing with the EU when it is imploding in on itself will benefit no-one. Trade is down and unemployment rising, both unequivocal facts.
Either way we need a referendum, and sooner rather than later. All facts from both sides of the debate need to be given, fairly and most importantly, equally, with no side being given more air time or media coverage than the other. Only by this means will the population have all the facts from which to decide. At least by this means, all four parties, along with Mr Rossiter, will know what is required to be done in the future.
Only a referendum will give these facts to our politicians so what is it Messrs Cameron, Clegg and Miliband are so scared of?
Surely they would want to listen to the people who put them into power... wouldn't they?
