Cameron’s unsatisfactory deal
In attempting to renegotiate Britain’s EU arrangements, David Cameron, the prime minister, has not secured a satisfactory deal. The UK has failed to enshrine the supremacy of UK law and parliament over European decision-making. The European court of justice can override the UK ‘supreme’ court. Cameron is unlikely to achieve the fundamentally reformed EU for which he urged the electorate to vote. In the 23 June vote I favour leaving the EU, with which the UK will retain close and friendly trading arrangements.
