Initiate EU exit now, Paterson to tell Cameron
FORMER Cabinet minister Owen Paterson is expected to call on David Cameron to initiate the exit process for the UK from the European Union in a major speech this week.
The call by the leading Eurosceptic, who has become a focal point for rightwing dissatisfaction with Mr Cameron on the Tory benches, comes as the Prime Minister faced criticism from both wings over his EU strategy.

Juncker's EU investment plan risks disappointing
Monday, 24 November 2014 20:57
New European Commission chief Jean Claude Juncker has made a 300-billion-euro investment plan a centrepiece of his five-year agenda, but days before a highly awaited unveiling doubts are rife that it can deliver.
Two years after the eurozone debt crisis, the economy is flatlining and unemployment is high, while the lack of response by European Union leaders has again become a concern for the world.

Monday, 24 November 2014 00:10
BRITAIN'S economy could be boosted by £10billion if the country quit the European Union and agreed a trade deal with the US, a report from an American think tank said last night.
Claims that the UK's trade with the rest of the world would be damaged by cutting ties to Brussels were "unfounded", according to the research.
The European Union must have a closer link to national politics if it is to retain its legitimacy
Friday, 21 November 2014 22:02
This year has seen much discussion about the next President about the European Commission. Anand Menon writes that while much of this debate has focused on the merits of Jean-Claude Juncker and the other candidates, the real issue is a structural one concerning the future of the European Parliament. He argues that, regardless of the Commission President, the European Parliament is no longer fit for purpose as a mechanism for legitimising the EU. Only by forging a stronger link between the Union and politics at the national level can the EU’s democratic legitimacy be ensured.
Outrage as greedy EU demands MORE of your cash
Thursday, 20 November 2014 13:15

Members of the European Parliament demanded the cash – including £680million from British taxpayers – to settle unpaid bills.

Cameron 'must apply to leave EU'
Monday, 24 November 2014 22:00
David Cameron must apply to leave the European Union immediately if he wins the next election to give voters a "proper choice" between a trade partnership or joining the euro, a former Cabinet minister has said.
Owen Paterson warned that Britain will inevitably be dragged into the single currency and claimed that triggering article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty - activating the two-year mechanism for departure - would mean other nations were "legally bound" to enter into meaningful negotiations before the planned in/out referendum in 2017.
Are we citizens of the United Kingdom or the European Union?
Monday, 24 November 2014 20:44
The report published today by the think tank Open Europe makes reccommedations so luminously sensible that one wonders why they have never – apparently – been suggested before. Here is the obvious answer to the question: how can we make the UK less of an irresistible haven for the populations of the poorest EU member states? The study rightly points out that it is not benefit scrounging which is the motivation behind all those migrants who mob Calais and flood into Victoria Coach Station from the East.
Britain and David Cameron are Impotent in the European Union
Friday, 21 November 2014 22:25
You have to wonder how much humiliation British Prime Minister David Cameron can take. Back in June Cameron committed himself to a test. In effect he told the British people that the United Kingdom and the the European Union were “better together,” and to prove it he would show that England mattered. He would block the nomination of generally disliked Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission. It didn’t go well. German chancellor Angela Merkel supported Juncker, who won 26 to 2 with only Hungary supporting Cameron.
