A return to mature reasoning politics.
Of course the EU needs reform, all old groups and states do -the older they are, the more they need it.
But,blinded by the retro-history of populist profiteering press magnates,we must not rush towards our hubris, into the tragedy of bigotry,marginalisation,isolat ion,decline:quos vult perdere deus dementat prius?
Let UKIP and the Conservative UKIP MPs make an honest break now.Give the nation true choice.
Meanwhile let the PM keep a tradition from Churchill through Heath, Thatcher, Major and Blair and stay in Europe seeking strength there.
Mr Clegg might even help him ?
Please do not go fishing in the murk of jingoistic populism-don't we know where that leads?
