In 1975 they did say "Yes" to the EU. The EU was announced by the government in October 1972. The first summit was even on the timetable of future developments, and that was published in the press.

What did you think he hid when he was on Panorama in 1960 telling everyone the EEC was about political union?

Whose institutional proposals were rejected in 1972, when we decided the form of the European Union. You're now just into politics rather than the institutional architecture which definitely not been designed to be a USoE

This is nonsense. Jean Monnet wasn't an arch federalist.

It meant we get a referendum every time there is a change that means powers go abroad.

No, it has a clear division of competency. We actually have more democracy in the EU than we do out. That's the problem.

Ever closer union of the people? How has that happened? Are we merging into one big person? It's not the EU's job to ask people about the treaties, that's on the memberstate.

I didn't include the bit where he didn't understand GATT Article I and Andrew Neil explained it to him, which fundamentally meant that his explanation was wrong. If I wanted to make him look ludicrous, I'd have included the lot. It was about the terminology he used.

What makes you think they don't consult with citizens?

OK, so you're taking about damaging our importers and exporters, now we're getting somewhere. We're also damaging manufacturing because the intermediate trade is quite substantial, and this affects our trade with countries like South Africa. The car industry, for example.

If you want to be led out of Egypt, go with Moses, not the guy who says they just need to rock up to the pharaoh and say "You need us more than we need you" and he'll bend over backwards.

No, I mean we will be separate customs territories and be treated like separate customs territories, because unless we're in the customs union, we will be separate customs territories. So are you going to join the Customs Union and the Single Market?

I'm not sure the level of complaints were worth finding yourself up shit creek without a paddle after listening to people like Farage who clearly know nothing about trade.
