(Reuters) - Opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband vowed on Monday he would not let Britain sleepwalk towards exit from the European Union as Prime Minister David Cameron prepared for tough talks in Brussels this week on a renewal of the bloc's budget.Given that the vast majority of the British people are against our continued membership, who is Ed Miliband warning? Why is exit a problem? What is wrong with sleepwalking into a better situation? Why are EU budget talks tough? (Just simply say no)
Then comes the contradiction:
"Increasingly we see euroscepticism on the rise among the British public - we see cabinet ministers in this government openly calling for Britain to leave," Miliband said.Increasingly Euroscepticism is on the rise according to Miliband, but his response is to ignore it and argue for continued membership. In other words - sod off. Their contempt is there...in plain sight.
"For those of us like me, who care passionately about our place in European Union, we cannot remain silent. I will not let Britain sleepwalk towards exit from the European Union."
