In Brussels, Mr Cameron took the step to agree that those states that signed up to the Fiscal Compact can indeed use other European Union institutions to push their decisions onto Great Britain – unless it was to threaten British interests including “The City” and then he would take contest it. All very sensible as the European states are trying to save their own economies, the Union’s economy and by extension our economy as well.
However the Euro sceptic wing of the Conservative party is already getting up in arms, spurned on by Ed Miliband’s taunt “The Veto that never was.”
We’re back to business as usual, ministers and mandarins cutting deals, and the people of this country ignored. If you’re a Eurosceptic, there’s only one show in town after yesterday and that’s calling for a referendum, Douglas Carswell MP for Clacton.
However the Pro- European Libdems are over the moon with the action. It is no secret that Nick Clegg was “Bitterly disappointed” as were many of the party at what was perceived as Tory obstinace by some. Could this new move by Mr Cameron be to placate his Libdem partners?
It could be that the realisation that it is better to be part of the solution than part of the problem and that the EU will need to access all it can to try and solve this massive crisis and if the Euro and the European economy collapse then Britain will take another serious knock and if our local trade partners are in serious trouble they won’t want to buy British goods r be able to afford it.
