Letter: Europe: what now?
Thursday 18 March 1999
The resources, financial and human, that have been dedicated to the unworkable collective partnership that the EU is, can now be shown by the fatal report on the workings of the Commission to have been wasted.
It is time that we stop pursuing through the EU our goal of peaceful, mutually beneficial relationships with our neighbours. The Commission is beyond redemption. Our government's time should now be spent looking at alternatives outside of the EU to achieve this aim. We should demand repatriation of powers to Westminster, to give our MPs the ammunition to solve the problems in our country.
