The decision by David Cameron to allow Cabinet ministers to campaign to leave the European Union if they wish is the honourable thing to do.
Harold Wilson did the same thing in 1975 but this time round I believe that the result will be very different and the British people, known for their common sense when armed with all the facts, will vote to leave.
I personally welcome Cameron’s move though it is a pity that the Prime Minister favours staying in the doomed and failing EU and will plainly support the campaign to remain in.
But whatever the outcome the rifts in the Conservative Party over the issue run very deep and may never heal.
