From the wonderful Iron Lady herself…

Unlike any other state in the European Community, I repeat, unlike any other state in the European Community, we in Britain have not been conquered for over nine centuries and our taste for managing our own affairs is strong indeed.

For me, politics is about power given to us through the ballot box for which we are accountable to the people. To me it is unthinkable, that a politician can come into office and then, using the power with which the people have entrusted him, seek to vote away not only that very power, but the powers of the generations that must follow.
