We don't have free trade - It's controlled by the EU.

Exactly. EU membership is just as incompatible with free trade as the old Imperial preference.

I don't believe a word that comes out of that man's mouth any more. It took me a couple of years to reach that point with Tony Blair. Cameron's done it in just six months, which is impressive.
I guess we'll see what actually results, but I suspect this, and the next four-and-a-half years, will more closely resemble his bonfire of the quangoes, his referendum lock, his great repeal bill, his EU budget freeze -- altogether less impressive than we were led to anticipate.
After six months, I think we've seen the pattern emerging that will define his whole leadership: less Thatcher and more Heath. We can only hope he doesn't cause too much damage.

We won't have free trade unless we rid ourselves of our domestic non-tariff barriers a.k.a. excessive regulation, and our domestic tariff barriers a.k.a.excessive taxation. at the moment we are simply exporting entire industries for others to run.

Cameron wants to cure the imbalance?
He would have to understand why Britain runs permanent trade deficits in the
Does he know that trade deficits, in Britain's case, are caused because we must
import more into the country than we are able to export?
Some factors are beyond our control; energy, rare minerals etc, but the other
factors have been caused by Socialism pricing UK manufacturing overseas.
Now, Cameron says he wants to address this, yet he supports the minimum wage, he
fails to understand the disadvantages of a punitive taxation system, he has no
understanding about the increasing UK and EU regulation which is destroying
UK jobs, and now, what threatens to be the coup de grâce, unlimited access to the
UK jobs market by EU foreigners.
Only serious, independent action by a competent British administration committed
to UK national interest stands any chance of redressing this imbalance.

International trade is totally an EU competence-Cameron's views are simply of no importance and should not be out up here.
