Cameron should send his Alternate to the E-Council on the MFF
IF PM Cameron values his neck, he will send his designated Alternate with the sole authority being to veto any agreement that may be presented or advanced. That in fact is his own sole authority on this vast spending programme, as designated recently by our own sovereign Parliament.
The EU should not be discussing the MFF starting in 2014 this weekend, it should be finding the funds to reduce the 128.5% of GDP rumoured on Twitter to be the present Troika estimate of Greece's 2020 GDP to the IMF targeted 120%. A matter not involving Britain!
Present polls in the UK indicate 56% dissatisfaction with the EU which figure is growing strongly. As blogged yesterday morning, it is widely recognised on the Continent that Britain is heading towards the EU exit.
No Prime Minister, who values his own neck, could possibly be sufficiently sure of the coming uncertain and dangerous events to commit the nation to a further seven years of funding the waste, corruption and incompetence that the EU now quite clearly represents.
A Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers in the USA. Rarely since the war have those Americans of European descent, had so much to be thankful to their ancestors for, in making the journey West, to escape the old Continent which once again seems bent on proving itself chaotic, essentially corrupt and ultimately ungovernable.
