I write in response to the last Hayes in the House column.
There is no way we can properly control our borders, our own laws or preserve our culture while we remain in the EU – and the majority of Conservatives in Parliament wish to stay members at all costs.

A few nominal rebels changes nothing. I am annoyed that this attempt by our MP and a few of his colleagues to steal the ground from under UKIP, by saying things they happily pilloried us for daring to mention during the election.
One of the differences between our parties is that UKIP has campaigned for years for Brexit, while the Conservatives did the opposite.
What we hear from them now is just noise, intended to give a false impression.
Don’t be fooled by this smoke screen. Back in the day, we voted for a trade club, a common market that we were assured by the then Tory leaders would make no difference to our national sovereignty. Just look where we are now.
Failure to vote on an EU exit will swiftly result in an extended, expansionist and federal Europe, probably including Turkey. There will not be another chance to leave.
I’m happy that a few Tories say they want to leave, perhaps they have at last worked out that significant renegotiation with Brussels is impossible.
They should get behind a real Brexit movement. I don’t somehow think that Nigella’s dad is going to achieve much.
