Reader’s Comment of the Day: Cameron fears Europe’s spite if we quit its club


In response to David Keighley: Is Cameron morphing into an EU fanatic like Heath?, Bugle wrote:

To be charitable to David Cameron, I think he probably was at one time a Eurosceptic. But his time in office and his assimilation by Whitehall, along with some bitter experience of ‘Europe’ has made him fear the vindictive spite of the European elite should Britain attempt to leave. We would undoubtedly suffer regulative sabotage and attrition of our economy, and Cameron does not want to carry the can.

In this sense the economic case for staying in Europe is very strong. The desire for British exit is based on nationalistic and patriotic feeling, a feeling I share. The simple question is, are we prepared to pay an economic price for national autonomy? That the price would most likely be a short to medium term decline followed by an impressive recovery would not make it less painful. Such things take nerve and vision. David Cameron is a manager, not a visionary.
