George Osborne has warned that Britain is "not immune" to the crisis in the eurozone amid growing fears over Italy and Spain. After holding talks with counterparts in Brussels yesterday, the Chancellor insisted decisive action was needed to ensure the markets had confidence in bail-out mechanisms. The ministers had been intending to discuss a second package for Greece, but the gathering has been overshadowed by the Italian government's efforts to agree austerity measures. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has insisted the estimated �42 billion of savings will return his country's finances to "significant surplus" if passed by MPs. See PA story EU Euro.

Have your say

Just search for ‘the five presidents report’ on Google and you will find the plan for the next five years of the EU, set out by the top five people in Europe.

Their intention is to have full banking and taxation integration by that time. Following that, they say there ‘must’ be political integration and if that doesn’t scare you, it probably should!

In short, the will of the political elite in Brussels is to form a federal republic between five and 10 years from now – that is the one fact that really scares me.

No one seems to be mentioning it and personally I don’t think either side of the debate is making a good case, after all, how can anyone know what will really happen in the short to medium term – in fact, the short term could be a bit bumpy if we come out and as a business owner, that worries me too! But how will our children judge us if we vote simply on the basis of short-term comfort?

Federal systems require each member state to give up sovereignty, border control, currency, monarchies, law-making, independent armed forces, health services and policing – you can’t have a federal republic any other way.

So the real question is – do we, as a sovereign nation, really want to be part of 
a European Federal 
project?

And don’t think, just because David Cameron believes he has a deal on veto and staying away from the integration process, that we are protected. In 10 years time, his deal will just be a piece of paper, signed in Europe, waved in the air and then consigned to history – sound familiar?

One final thought – if there was a third question on the ballot paper to remain in a trading partnership with Europe, but come out politically, how do you think everyone would vote? I would.
