One of the things people across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands constantly tell me is that we need to bring powers back from Europe to Westminster. I completely agree.
Every week I hear MEPs from other parties wanting more powers for the EU, more money for the EU, more powers over member countries, more, more, more.
As Conservative MEPs, we fight all the time to try to stop the transfer of further powers to Europe, to control and cut the EU budget and to stop the multitude of crazy schemes that come from Brussels. But what we need is a fundamental change, so that we don't have to keep fighting.
The Conservative Party is the only party which has promised a clear in/out referendum in the next Parliament.
The Lib Dems, having backed a referendum at the last election, have now decided they don't want one.
As for Labour, they are so opposed to giving the British people a say that they are trying to stop a Conservative-backed Private Member's Bill going through the Westminster Parliament, which would put this into law.
Last month there was a vote in the European Parliament on whether to stop wasting £130 million every year by moving the entire parliament to Strasbourg once a month.
Neither of your UKIP MEPs for the East Midlands supported the vote for a single seat. Maybe they like the travelling circus.
Conservatives are the only party pushing for this.
Before there is a referendum there will be renegotiation. We can and must renegotiate. Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean it's impossible.
Those that say it is impossible are also those that want ever-deeper integration with the EU – and don't want us to leave!
People said cutting the EU budget was impossible, yet our Prime Minister did it. I believe the people who are saying renegotiation is impossible will be proved wrong.
We're now less than six months away from next year's European Elections, to be held on Thursday May 22, 2014.
If you, like me, want to see real change, the only option is to vote Conservative. We are the party standing up for Britain in the European Parliament.
