MPs calling for a Renegotion of EU Treaty.

A number of MPs are calling for a renegotiation of the UKs terms of membership of the EU.

Have you any views as to what the terms should be?

I for one never voted, when asked in Edward Heaths Referendum, to join a political union as it has now become. I like many others voted to join a free trading area.

My feelings are we should repeal all the legislation that has been imposed on us by Europe that is not in our national interest and return to the previous legislation passed by Westminster.

IMO David Cameron's speech was to take the sting out of political organizations like UKIP. They, the conservative hierarchy, are concerned that a lot of voters would support a party that would give the UK voters a choice to stay or leave. So they are offering a scenario where they may ask for a renegotiation of terms. The labour party and liberal democrats are in the same boat. They want to stay in the EU but are fearful of voters having enough of European legislation.

I for one am pretty sure that nothing will become of this, until at least after the Scotland question is settled. There would simply be too many variables and get out clauses until the UK decides on its own future set up.
