Thurrock MEP slams “impotent” Cameron EU pledge.

BRITAIN’S prime minister has been described as “the man who tries to please everyone, but ends up pleasing no-one,” in the wake of David Cameron’s long-awaited Europe speech today, (Wednesday 23 January).

After the Prime Minister’s comment in advance that the speech would be worth waiting for “like tantric sex,” local Euro MP Richard Howitt also commented that all Cameron’s speech had done was to “reveal his own impotence.”

Richard Howitt MEP, who also chairs the Labour group of Members of the European Parliament, says it is Labour which can achieve the necessary reforms to the European Union and which will put jobs and growth first.

Richard Howitt MEP said: “By suggesting a referendum several years in to the future, David Cameron has angered businesses who crave a return of confidence but who instead have been given a recipe for uncertainty.

“Yet the Prime Minister has equally failed to please his own Eurosceptics, with one of his own Tory MEPs predicting it will lead to Conservative defeat at the next General Election.

“He is the man who tried to please everyone, and ended up pleasing no-one.”

Richard Howitt MEP added: “When talking about repatriating powers, the Prime Minister is really suggesting an end to basic rights at work and to the cooperation which enables us to extradite suspected paedophiles and terrorists from abroad.

“It’s all about Conservative not European politics, and an effort to heal deep divisions within his own party rather than pursuing the national interest.

“And by suggesting he can negotiate changes which realistically he has little hope of achieving, the Prime Minister is sleepwalking us towards exit from the European Union altogether.

“Labour will not stand silent while this dangerous game is being played, and it is Labour which can deliver the reforms Europe needs.”


  1. Surely the quote “He is the man who tried to please everyone, and ended up pleasing no-one.” could be leveled at almost every politician, including the soundbite from Richard Howitt MEP

    So far there has only been one MEP that has actually looked like saying it as it is and that is Nigel Farage

  2. So Mr Howitt and Labour are going to sign us up to more of our laws being ridden roughshod over by the ECHR. He and Labour are going to sign us up to more illegal immigrants costing this country hundreds of millions in legal fees and benefits while they make groundless appeals to the ECHR as to why they should remain in this country. He and Labour will sign us up to more foreign criminals doing the same meaning we can’t deport rapists and murderers. He and Labour are going to sign us up to more mass immigration from Eastern Europe, in particular Bulgaria and Romania. He and Labour are going to sign us up to the Euro, they had an entire department in the treasury preparing this country for entry. He and Labour are going to sign us up to the kind of democracy recently seen in Italy, Greece, Ireland and other countries that have had their leaders chosen for them by Germany or have had to re-run referendums where the vote didn’t turn out in favour of the EU. Is that what He and Labour are going to sign us up to? Fantastic can’t wait. Not forgetting his fat salary and expenses and the billions we have to pay to an organisation that has never had it’s accounts passed by an independent audit . Can Mr Howitt name just one single company that has said it will pull out of this country if we had a referendum on Europe. He seems so sure they will, he must be able to name one. More Labour bullsh*t.
