VISITING Britain, Angela Merkel met and discussed with David Cameron our diabolical immigration issues.

That immediately scuppered our Prime Minister’s desire to curb the massive influx to a manageable level.

This means our border controls cannot be introduced to regulate the unsustainable incoming numbers.

It is also reported that German officials are attending Tory Euro-sceptic meetings in Westminister.

They are hoping to discover the attitude of the attendants regarding a withdrawal from the EU.

Officials from the German embassy in London are said to be mingling with the supporters at the meetings.

They are unidentifiable, as the numbers attending the meetings are rapidly increasing as time goes by.

What is more alarming is a statement from Lord Stoddart, an independent Labour peer.

He said between the years 2013 and 2020 Britain will have donated £64.2bn into EU coffers.

More than we will have obtained from the EU.

In our present economic situation you would think that amount of cash would be better spent on the under-funded NHS, the initiation of future employment for our young, and housing shortages.

Or the refurbishment of the infrastructure of local councils and services that have been cut. Unfortunately that will never come about.

The major parties are dictatorial in their views on a referendum for the electorate.

No party has arisen yet with MPs who respect, and who have the backbone and courage to carry out, the people’s wishes and not those of the party they represent.

We live in hope for the future of this once great benevolent sovereign country.

Our future lies as an independent nation, free of the diatribe that comes from the unelected bureaucrats in the marble halls of Brussels.
