The EU referendum is not about what David Cameron wants.
It is about what the people of the UK want.
Their decision should be based on the most accurate information possible about the benefits the UK derives from its EU membership, and any advantages that are lost to this country as a result of the same.
David Cameron’s personal opinions are irrelevant.
By far the more interesting aspect of this Independent story is the coded communique from the G7 leaders, saying Brexit could interfere with “trade” and “investment”.
Now, what other current issue uses those words in its title?
Could it be that these G7 leaders are trying to TTIP the balance of opinion?
David Cameron has said he is not a “closet Brexiteer” as leaders of the G7 warned the UK’s exit from the EU would pose a ‘serious risk’ to growth.
Speaking at the end of the G7 summit in Japan, the Prime Minister welcomed a communique by the assembled leaders pointing to “economic dangers” of a vote by Britain to leave the EU.
And he flatly denied a claim by his old friend and former adviser Steve Hilton that his natural instinct was to vote for Out.
Brexit was ranked alongside “escalated geopolitical conflicts, terrorism and refugee flows” as one of the main reasons global growth could be “below potential” at the summit.
“UK exit from the EU would reverse the trend toward greater global trade, investment and the jobs they create and is a further serious risk to growth,” the agreed statement warned.
