Cameron's doubts and fears over Brexit say more about his own weakness and lack of self-confidence than it does about the UK's ability to thrive outside of the shackles of Europe. It's as if Churchill had declared in 1940 that he wasn't sure about the resisting thing and maybe we'd be better off surrendering to the Germans after all. Cameron's insecurity and pusillanimity have no place in guiding the future of our nation.
There are moments in the life of a nation when the best course is not the one that superficially presents the least risk. In actual fact, I believe that staying in the EU is the greatest risk that Britain faces; Brussels has learned nothing and cannot be changed. I love Europe and have always appreciated our Island's place in the glorious melange of European culture. Before 1600, little divided us in terms of advancement from the arabs, the asiatics and the chinese, but our skill, enterprise, inventiveness and two enlightenments catapulted Europe ahead of the entire world by the 20th century. England's bloody-minded determination to grow and thrive was one of the major drivers for Europe's development then - and can be so again. We just need to show the Federasts that they're wrong and bad for the people of Europe.
And for that we need courage and self-confidence in our undoubted ability to show Europe the way. What we don't need is some weak and foolish Cassandra in Number 10 crying woe and dribbling piss down his expensively tailored leg.
We can do it - VOTE OUT!
