David Cameron’s EU Pledge Made Simple

“I solemnly promise to close the stable door after the horse has bolted and provided that feckless groom Brown is fired first. Furthermore, a new lock will be fitted to the stable door to make sure this can’t happen again. Oh, but please don’t talk about bringing the horse back.

We’ll try and get a smaller one instead, and I promise to look after it very carefully if we do. And please don’t mention those unrealistic fantasists who want to contest the Compulsory Purchase Order on what used to be our stable.

Our trade agreement to establish a Single Stable Market has already become a United Stables of Europe. I’m sorry, but there’s really nothing I can do about that. Which means there’s nothing you can do about it either – except trust me… please… now, where did I put that shovel? Could you lend me a hand?”
