That arch-Eurosceptic, our esteemed Foreign Secretary William Hague has mustered another argument for not having an EU referendum: it would apparently hurt the British economy.
And why? Because contrary to what William Hague says, the EU is an economic disaster that costs Britain billions in bailouts and Tory-approved budget increases. We literally pay Brussels billions of pounds to destroy our democracy and heap masses of legislation on small businesses and the judiciary. The people aren't as stupid as to believe tall tales from the likes of Hague about the EU aiding prosperity. It is total nonsense.
Anyone who still thinks Hague, Cameron and the rest of the Tory leadership are truly interested in any notion of EU reform let alone radical change is deluding themselves.
