Since the Single European Act of 1986, Bill Cash has opposed European Government and instead continuously insisted upon and argued for an Association of Nation States for European trade and political co-operation. He campaigns for a Referendum on the European issue and a strong re-affirmation of the real sovereignty of the United Kingdom Parliament (where necessary overriding the European Communities Act 1972 and requiring the Supreme Court and the judiciary to implement Westminster legislation inconsistent with that Act to underpin the democratic choice and wishes of the voters in his constituency and throughout the United Kingdom).

Since the Maastricht Treaty brought in European Government in 1992, he has led these arguments from the backbenches, chairing the Maastricht Referendum Campaign with its 500,000-strong petition to Parliament and putting down approximately 200 amendments to the successive European Treaties of Amsterdam, Nice and Lisbon. Consistently supported by a significant number of Conservative and other backbenchers, he has also introduced several Referendum Bills and Sovereignty of Parliament amendments. David Cameron has accepted and whipped several of Bill Cash’s Sovereignty Amendments over the last two years.
