But like so many times before they didn't really want to know, and when they did here they jammed their fingers in their ears shouting

The Foreign Office was deluged with suggestions that Britain should leave the EU. In its response the Foreign Office said it understood why ‘so many of you feel jaded and sceptical about the EU’, but made it clear the Government had no intention of quitting the EU.

Indeed they rejected anything that wasn't already their policy. And they wonder why people don't like politicians?
