UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s administration had set the EU referendum the last two years. However, he doesn’t call it as an “irresponsible” act. He stated that he had “good reason” to allow it to push through.
According to Cameron, it wasn’t reasonable to hold a country in an organisation that is against its will.
“I absolutely think that if we vote to leave it’ll have these severe economic consequences, and it’s not just the Treasury that is saying that – the IMF, OECD, and Bank of England have all said it,” he said.
“In terms of holding the referendum, it is a pledge and a promise that I made, and for good reason – we’ve been in this organisation for 40 years, people of this generation haven’t been able to make the choice of whether to stay or to leave
“Europe has made changes over the years and you can’t hold a country in an organiastion against its will. I think we should welcome the fact that we’re having the big sovereign decisions by the British people.”
“There are people out there who say yes, there would be a hit to our economy but it’s somehow worth it for other reasons. I’ve heard Nigel Farage, for instance, stay that many times. I profoundly disagree,” he said.
“We have a special deal in Europe and with that in mind it is certainly not worth the huge risk and downside to our economy of voting to leave. That is why I’m making this argument so vigorously every day for the next 30 days before we vote.”
