Liberal Democrats are preparing to exact a steep price to allow the Conservatives a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU, the Financial Times has learnt. The Lib Dems’ conditions are expected to include allowing EU nationals living in the UK to vote in the ballot.

Ignore Brexit scaremongers: We will thrive outside the EU if Britain embraces free trade
Tuesday, 31 March 2015 19:50
Forget the scaremongering that so often accompanies debate about Britain’s EU membership. Leaving the European Union could be a win-win for the UK. We could have more international influence, create more trade and jobs, and regain sovereign control over our own laws and borders.

Friday, 23 January 2015 17:28
Denmark's government may need to put the question of whether the country should join the EU's banking union to a referendum, its economy minister said on Friday.
Danish institutions and voters are divided over whether to seek membership of the union, launched in November with the European Central Bank as lead supervisor of the sector.
Morten Ostergaard said the government had not yet decided whether to recommend joining and would call a referendum if a constitutional need for one arose.
"We will stick to the rules of the Danish constitution meaning we would need one only if we were to give away further sovereignty," he told a parliamentary committee.

As Karl Marx was one of the earliest to point out, economics (though so much less interesting) is far more important than politics.
Marx considered all political events as epiphenomena. He viewed great men as blind instruments of irresistible forces which they themselves could hardly comprehend.
