Dozens of Conservative MPs are urging David Cameron to give Parliament a veto over all EU laws, in an attempt to take back control of Britain’s borders.
Up to 80 backbenchers are expected to sign a letter to the Prime Minister calling for Parliament to be given the right to throw out existing laws from Brussels and block new ones.
The MPs say the move would allow Britain to ‘recover control over our borders, lift EU burdens on business, (and) regain control over energy policy…in popular and sensible ways.’
By agreeing to be in the EU you’ve signed away the right to do that. EU law is made in Brussels and then imposed in Westminster. It’s not something there’s any choice left over.
