It comes as no surprise that Mr Hague might vote to stay in the EU. In 1997 when he ran for Leader he would not rule out the UK joining the Euro. It was only later when Leader that we persuaded him to rule that out. He never made a speech saying we would be better off out.
His two reasons are bizarre for staying in. The first is the SNP will not like it. The SNP will use any argument to try to split the UK. This obvious fact cannot stop us doing the right things on important issues.
The second is we are important to democracy in eastern Europe. The EU has not created democracies in Eastern Europe. The people and politicians of those countries have done that. They will not cease to be democracies if we leave the EU!
Note that his reasons offer the people of England nothing that we want. Once again those in favour of us being in fail to make a positive case. Mr Hague couldn’t even think up negatives about us outside, but had to resort to negatives for the rest of them if we go!
