For many British voter Iain Duncan Smith is something of a hate figure. For Conservatives he is a man whose ineptitude as party leaders led to a third consecutive General Election defeat by Labour in 2005. To this blog he he certainly incompetend and an uninspiring figure in politics but neither of those things mean he is always wrong. So let’s consider his reasons for thinking the UKK will be better off outside the EU. from Sputnik News:
Keeping the United Kingdom inside the European Union exposes the country to a risk of terrorist attacks, former Conservative Party leader and current Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said Sunday.
“I think the present status of the open border we have right now, many of us feel, does actually leave that [Paris-style terrorist attack] door open, and we need to see that resolved,” Smith told the BBC.
Revising the passport-free EU-wide Schengen open border was a “critical part” of Prime Minister David Cameron’s renegotiating campaign for EU reforms, he added.
“This open border does not allow us to check and control the people that may come and may spend time. You see what happened in Paris, where they spent ages planning and plotting, so who’s to say it’s not beyond the wit of man that those might already be thinking about that,” Smith stressed.
British Referendum on Retaining EU Membership to Be Held in June The so-called Brexit referendum is scheduled to be held on June 23, after Cameron and 27 of his European colleagues agreed on a deal to grant London special status within the bloc.
Key allies and members of Cameron’s Cabinet have splintered off to support an “out” campaign, including London Mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Secretary Michael Gove.
Whie the Europhile and global government enthusiast David Cameron, wannabe first First Minister of Lesser England (i.e. England without The Danelaw) province in the Federal Republic of Greater Germanystan, is arguing that we will be safer and more prosperous inside the EU. One only has to look at what is going on in Eurozone states to see what a fuckwit Cameron is, so maybe Iain Duncan Smith has a point on this one.
