has his deal but he has risked Britain's future prosperity, security and influence in the worldAnd now we are off. After months of negotiations, weeks of diplomacy and hours of late-night horse-trading David Cameron has secured a deal. He will recommend we v
ote to stay in the EU. We dont know how many will heed his advice. When the PM began his great referendum experime下载743好彩二四六天天好彩 nt he started a chain reaction he now has no idea how to stop. Dont forget the Tory leader chose this course to placate Eurosceptics in his party. Cameron decided the interests o
f the country were of equal weight to cranky demands of Eurosceptics such as Jacob Rees-Mogg and Sir Bill Cash. And in doing so he has risked our fut
ure prosperity, security and influence in the world. The irony, of course, is that the demands of the anti-European Tories can never be met. Whatever the outcome of the re
erendum, the thing Cameron was trying to avoid - a Tory split - looks unavoidable.
Winning the vote will not be a triumph for
the Prime Minister. There will be no plaudits from those who never wanted to leave and only more resentment from those incapable of over
coming their obsessive Europhobia. The only thing worse for Cameron would be to lose the referendum. The first casualty, which few will mourn, will be himself. But there will be other consequences of far more significance. Britain would have to renegotiate all its treaties with the EU. Trade deals with other nations, previously covered by our membership, will have to be explored. Our position as Americas bridge to Europe will be thrown into doubt and our international standing faces being potentially diminished. If the warnings are true, our economy will suffer and outside investment put in danger. Protection for workers, consumers and tourists - all enhanced thanks to membership of the EU - could evaporate. And the break-up of t
he UK could accelerate with Scotland the most pro-European part of Britain, demanding its own membership of the EU. Camerons gamble is not just reckless, it could be act of national sabotage.
