Letter to the Times

Today I had my first letter to the Times published. In it I argued that the UK should press ahead with the referendum on the EU Constitution. The French reputedly rejected it as too Anglo-Saxon, so we need to demonstrate that we don't find it Anglo-Saxon enough before our esteemed leaders start negotiations on the future direction for Europe. Also, it is inappropriate for our policy to be dictated by foreigners - our government should let us have a say on out future.

In my view, the EU should return to the idea of working as a free trade area, and should work with the WTO to achieve completely free and fair global free trade. Political and Monetary Union should be quietly forgotten by the politician who supported them in a vain attempt to write their names in the history books.
