For every time David Cameron has said leaving the EU is “imaginable” (once), he has said the UK should remain in the EU hundreds of times. There was, however, a bit of welcome news yesterday.

You don’t have to look far in the EU to see them wasting money. News in the papers of late shows the EU spends a staggering £2.1bn on quangos a year. Our share of that is £300m, not even a week’s membership contributions. We will keep repeating this charge – the EU is not a… Read more
