I’m woke up in 05:00 to read newspapers and watching a BBC One to understand UK politics. Britain faces a tough discussion to stay or leave from European Union. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäeble talks to UK stay on single market while London mayor Boris Johnson upheld his case to leave from EU because of the European super state.
The passionate views over single market is very important to understand the discussion to stay or leave EU. Eurosceptics like Justice Secretary Michael Gove and Pensions and Work Secretary Iain Duncan Smith raises the question to European Union becomes a super state ahead influence of national parliaments to veto EU laws and bring back some powers was transfered to European Parliament.
When UK has entered on EEC in 1972. Then British Prime Minister Edward Heath views Europe was a goal on economic issues like gain access to single market. But EU turns a European federarion with huge powers in Brussels. It was criticised by many UK PMs as Margaret Thatcher and David Cameron in response to domestic demand to tackle immigration and curb benefits.
Either Schäeble or Johnson has upheld single market. But both has different views to handle it. The German Finance Minister views it like the soul of European integration while London Mayor upheld his opinion of it as free trade zone and Britain want to talk with other countries to reach a free trade agreements without EU intervention on that issue.
The great battle to decide to UK decides to stay or leave European Union is just begun with fierce discussions over that. Schäeble sees the single market as the keen goal to Britain to remain in EU while Johnson don’t want European rules for British issues to solves their problems. The EU referendum is more important than a simple discussion over a single market.
