One 'official opinion'...
"No British government has been in a stronger position"...David Blackburn in The Spectator quoting one official aide. Will it make the slightest bit of difference? Do you care? The European Union's budget of one trillion Euros was called 'relatively small': I'd be happier with about 9 fewer zeros; will David Cameron really secure a consensus to reject anything but a "0 per cent real terms rise for the 2013-2020 Budget round"?
Also, worth commenting on the news [deserves a post to itself really] that George Osborne objected to Britain's involvement in the eurozone bail-out and specifically asked "[Mr Darling] to be careful not to commit the UK to proposals that have a lasting effect on UK public finances"; nevertheless, later the same day Darling did the opposite and tied UK tax-payers' money into the bail-out fund. The following day Darling left office. Remember, the money being shovelled by various routes to the insatiable, greedy, gaping maw of the EU is SEVERAL TIMES the amount being "cut" by the Coalition: so, where is the outrage? Yes I know I've said it before; where are the marches? Where are the Unions? Where are the raving looney scraggly-bearded dodo Marxist Archbishops and hypocitical Polly Trots? I can't hear them. The current scene of the saga isn't a tragedy, it's a farce.
