My three 'R's for a new relationship
The EU and our relationship with it needs radical Reform.
This means Repatriation of powers from Europe back to Britain.
The new relationship needs to be put to the British people in an IN/OUT Referendum.
The key reforms I want to see are:
- Return to Free Market principles, reducing red tape and stopping protectionism.
- Protect the Pound: Financial rules for the Eurozone must never apply here. We are not in the Euro and this difference must be enshrined.
- Protect the UK: We need stronger border controls and must not be a haven for unlimited migration.
- Jurisdiction over courts, employment law and human rights must come back to Britain.
UPDATE (Feb 2016): My thoughts on the renegotiation, reforms and how I will vote in the referendum are available HERE.
