"There are only two coherent British attitudes to Europe:-

One is to participate fully...and to endeavour to exercise as much influence and gain as much benefit as possible from the inside.
The other is to recognise that Britain's history, national psychology and political culture may be such that we can never be other than a foot-dragging and constantly complaining member; and that it would be better, and certainly would produce less friction, to accept this and to move towards an orderly, and if possible, reasonably amicable withdrawal."

Pete North Politics Blog : More nonsense from INFacts (17th March 2016)

The depth of integration runs far deeper than most on either side really understands. Even the Cabinet Office has suggested Brexit is a process rather than an event and in undertaking such a journey the first step would have to be a baby step - using the EEA as a departure lounge. There is no other sane way to do it.

If we leave the EU in favour of EFTA/EEA membership we would regain an independent voice.

We would be able to express our views directly in global councils, without the blocking middleman of the EU

This is why they wanted this shift so badly in the past, and that is why they want it today."

Tim Stanley : The EU referendum is becoming a contest between the Establishment and the people (15th April 2016)

Christopher Booker (Telegraph) : Brexiteers are spurning their only chance of victory (9th April 2016)

The historians may note that David Cameron’s supposedly “renegotiated relationship” with the EU was even more of a joke than that claimed by Harold Wilson – and that the propaganda pamphlet he sent to every household was even flimsier and more cynical than that sent by the Wilson government in 1975

Philip Johnston (Telegraph) : The EU referendum must be decided by more than 55 per cent of voters (29th March 2016)

Charles Moore (Daily Telegraph) : The EU is a huge version of Belgium – and it can’t deal with the modern world (25th march 2016)

. . . the question of what the EU does or does not do for the security of its citizens is important, and will affect the referendum vote on June 23. Before the Brussels attacks, Mr Cameron said so himself. In his view, security is a central reason to vote Remain. Is he right?
