What a brilliant week. First, Hamburg and Kiel rejected the Olympics and now Denmark voted “no” on ending their opt-outs from EU home affairs bollocks. The Danish result — 53pc against, 47pc for — comes despite the best efforts of the very mediocre Lars Løkke to convince Danish voters to support the “correct” decision, to borrow EU terminology.
Some commentators have suggest that the Danish vote was a trial of sorts for the United Kingdom’s far more significant vote due by the end of 2017. With continental politicians waffling, nothing new there, and Cameron being just as mediocre as his Danish counterpart it could well be that the United Kingdom finally throws off its Euro-shackles and leaves that dying club to its fate. With the chaos on the continent unlikely to subside any time soon one can only hope that this trend continues!
