About a year and a half ago Gordon Brown warned that the in terms of Britain and the EU a “sullen resistance and disengagement [will] achieve nothing”.  That “any attempt to renegotiate or unravel social rights for the British” people would be comprehensively rejected; how times have changed.  Today Douglas Alexander threw weight behind a move to “reclaim” (if that is even possible” powers from under EU governance.  However he said the need for the UK to be “active” was a priority but that his party would take a “hard headed approach” to future EU negotiations.

David Cameron immediately retorted saying that this contravenes Labour’s feelings on the EU but regardless, why is everything in this country (media, politicians and most of the population) contrary to EU?  We are in the relationship we are in with the EU for a large part because of Labour’s previous governance.  To suddenly say that our interdependence with the EU is wrong and harmful to the UK seems particularly ridiculous coming from the Labour troop.  Why is it the case that politicians follow voters wherever they go and not stick up for what they believe in; and in some cases what is right.  There is no doubt that while UK reaped benefits from the EU (good business, complete support of our flailing agricultural industry and welfare reform that benefits all) all major political parties agreed that membership (in some form) was good for the UK and therefore in the interest of British citizens.  Why has Labour not pushed the public to remember these positives instead of U-turning on its policies?  Is voter hunting more important than integrity?
