Yes, yes, I know some of you are (shall we say?) a tad critical of the British gubmint (pause for widespread, even furrry heckling…..) but may I make a point by way of balance? Last night Cameron used the veto to draw a line in the European sand. Unlike his Opposition he didn’t want the Federalists to make further inroads into British sovereignty and hog-tie the City of London in deference to the Franco-German policies of envy. Other than Hungary (who agreed with him) and Sweden (who had to go home to ask Dad) the rest of the lily-livered mob are going to accept that their national budgets and expenditure will be controlled by Berlin. No, not by the faceless Commission or bottom-feeding Parliament or feckless Froggies – by Berlin.
Am I anti-German? No. Do I accept their economic imperialism? No. And Cameron has delivered the message. Well done.
