How on earth can UK be a strong member of the EU, creating and defining policies and governance, if we consistently stay out of it?
Conservative do not participate in the EU parliamentary party. We have separate and much ignored election of unknown EU politicians. We do not accept to transfer power to the EU parliament or the EU Commission, and live with EU management only through dictatorial power of the commission and democratic rubber stamping by the EU Council (heads of state meetings…).
There has to be another way, it may be radical but we should get fully stuck-in and adopt a future that is European.
