Evading the real issue

Prime Minister Cameron won’t debate face to face on the Referendum issue with Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage because they’re both more intelligent and forceful. Pity, because both would have brought up the vital element in the whole issue — the one that forced Cameron into allowing a Referendum in the first place — mass immigration over the past 20 years or so.

The real issue in the debate is nothing to do with economics. No one can possibly tell — never mind prove — whether this country’s balance of payments will do better after 23 June by staying in or leaving the EU. It’s a purely emotional issue — that is, an instinctive issue. How much can any indigenous culture stand by way of absorbing a different culture, particularly if it’s distinctively different?
