Letter: PM's constraints

David Cameron promises to bring decision making closer to the people – yet 80 per cent of legislation is created by the EU. He also proposes to limit immigration, but 80 per cent of immigration comes from within the EU.

So without a major change in our relationship with the EU, the Prime Minister is only responsible for 20 per cent of decision making. In which case, in these difficult times, Westminster needs to be severely downsized commensurate with its reduced responsibilities.
