This news gives us, the public, some glimpse what really goes on behind the scene. Apparently 500 top business men joint into one “Business for Britain” to force the government securing a better deal for Britain in Europe.  They signed up for a campaign to achieve it.

The new group includes top management people from a wide range of companies starting from major blue chip firms to smaller companies. They support David Cameron trying to re-establish Britain EU membership in Brussels.  It is a cross party operation “national drive to renegotiate the terms of British members of the European Union.”

Prime Minister David Cameron has already given a pledge to return power from Brussels to Britain. He also promised an IN/OUT referendum on the EU by the end of 2017 if the Conservatives win the next general election in 2015.

With all due respect but looking closer at each promise it does not give the public a great re-assurance. In the first instant, to wrestle back power from Brussels most people find it very doubtful since Brussels does not give up power very easily.  The promise regarding an IN/OUT referendum  looks like a method  to win the election. This promise was given already in the last election manifesto but the moment the Conservatives won by a minority and had built a coalition the promise was forgotten.  During the last three years the public kept demanding and a promise was given  again but when its deadline arrived, it was overlooked.

Therefore, it is doubtful the majority of people will fall for it again.  Mr Cameron has to look back on his track record and  learn from it that he can’t keep giving  pledges and promises and not keep them.

A spokesman for Business for Britain said: “As business and entrepreneurs are responsible for millions of British jobs, we believe that the government is right to seek a new deal from the EU and for the UK’s role in Europe. Far from being a threat to our economic interests, a flexible, compromising EU – with more powers devolved from Brussels – is essential for growth, jobs and access t markets.”

This statement on the surface makes great deal of sense but will Brussels let go of their power? Wouldn’t it make more sense to get out of the EU and spend the billions into the British economy? It would cut all the restrictions imposed by Brussels on British businesses and since  Britain was always a free trading state with a great name and respect on the world market for British goods it would regain it again

What is the reason for Britain clinging onto Brussels which waste billions of pounds each year, still asking for more and gives nothing but unreasonable rules and restrictions? Even the auditors refuse to sign their budget because there are over 84 billion Euros unaccountable and it is getting worse every year. Surely that is a big enough reason to decide to cut lose.

David Cameron imagined that he could achieve better regulation from Brussels even after Brussels already stated that there will no room for special wishes. Is Mr Cameron really so blind and deaf that he can’t hear the message. It stands to reason that if they give Britain special treatment then all the other countries will demand the same. Even if Germany and France agree to it, it still takes another 26 countries to do the same and that is not possible.

Why is David Cameron still talking about getting powers back from Brussels? Surely he must be more aware that it is impossible.

Barely a day or two past after the great speech was delivered Brussels threatens Britain with a £250,000 a day fine if they do not comply with the rules laid out by the EU regarding the gas and electricity. Britain had received these regulations in November 2011 but did not all implement them. The reason was that it would increase the prices of gas and electricity still further.  Now they have to face the dilemma either imply these rules or face that very heavy fine.  Brussels seems to show its teeth more and more.

Let’s face the facts. People are struggle more than enough to pay the gas and electricity bills any more and nobody can effort to use it but Brussels is not worried about that. They wouldn’t know what it means to pay bills.

Another absolute shocking revelation Brussels are plotting to restrict Press freedom.

The plan is that each European Union state introduces a media watchdog. They have to power to strip journalists of their licence and impose heavy fines.

It all comes from high above group dealing with media and freedom and pluralism and is organised by European Commission vice president Neelie Kroes.

First of all it will be a cutting down on Press Freedom which is highly praised by many countries which are political controlled. Secondly it will be another huge body to be paid for by the public.

It had also been stated that the EU hates free press and that is obvious when they now trying to control it. This will be another violation on the freedom of Britain after Law and Justice completely taken over and destroyed; free trade and industries suffocate under the burden of rules from Brussels and now the press Freedom.

How can anybody still belief in the EU and Brussels after reading for years about mismanagement, interference and constantly escalating high cost?

Britain surely has to come out now before Brussels complete destroys this country. An in/out referendum has to be done now and not after 2015 which most properly turns out to be another blatant lie like in the last Election Manifesto. David Cameron really thinks people are that naïve and backward for them still to belief in that.

It wouldn’t be surprising if he signs another new treaty on the quiet which would be for another seven years.
