David Cameron’s farcical attempts to reshape the UK’s membership of the EU have achieved nothing of value, Brexit campaigners have said.
They highlighted ten broken promises which Mr Cameron made over the years but shelved during his talks.
These broken promises include forgotten pledges to rein in European courts, kick out failed jobseekers and make changes to restrictive treaties.
Several of the commitments were in Tory manifestos, but never came true after Mr Cameron was elected.
In a furious attack the Vote Leave chief executive also accused the Prime Minister of exaggerating the significance of the concessions contained in his draft deal.
In a stinging critique of the Prime Minister’s diplomatic skills, Matthew Elliott said the deal is proof that Mr Cameron has not “negotiated hard” for Britain.
Mr Elliott also said that commitments to cut red tape burdens on business and boost competitiveness are “unlikely to have any tangible impact”.
His Vote Leave group also criticised the Prime Minister for failing to make good on pledges to secure reforms in ten areas that he has raised during his time as Conservative leader, including nailing down treaty change before a referendum and powers to stop jobless migrants moving to the UK.
“Many of the changes he is asking for require treaty change. He is effectively asking the British people to vote for something that has no more value than an unsigned contract.
“The only way to take back control is to Vote Leave.”
