AT LAST! Britain says NO to the EU.

Attacking the City of London and seeing that financial institution as the next source for EU pillaging, has finally forced even the previously weak-willed Prime Minister, David Cameron, to finally say no to the EU.  A report from Oz is here. BBC internet report here.

BBC News has played a statement from Cameron confirming that Britain will not agree to a treaty within a treaty and is so far only joined by Hungary, which country seems also to be wavering.

It will be a tough fight to prevent the 26 using the existing Treaties and Institutions against Britain, which nation will quickly be branded as both a pariah the enemy number one of the EU former nations in the run-up to its final collapse, or Britain’s capitulation.

On the eve of the first Elizabethan era the Hanseatic League collapsed and English merchant adventurers set forth to set the foundations for centuries of trade and the spread of civilization.

At the twilight of the second Elizabethan era, we finally have the chance to follow in their footsteps, using the great gifts of our language and entrepreneurship, all this after decades of drift and ever-growing decadence brought on by our pursuit of a fatally flawed trading alliance that metamorphosed into an anti-democratic and totalitarian nightmare.

    “At the twilight of the second Elizabethan era …”

    Nice analogy – a ray of hope perhaps.

    Well put, especially that last paragraph.

    I must confess I was very surprised to hear Cameron actually showing some bottle and saying no, as you say, at last.

    Before we all get too excited however it is worth considering why he did what I suspect most of us would regard as the right thing to do. My view is this was not to protect the sovereignty of the nation but rather that of the City. Since the Brown deregulation London has become the go-to place for shady financial deals that would be illegal in any respectable environment.

      Re the City — that’s what they said on French radio (RMC). Cameron’s veto was their lead story this morning.

    I am pleased to see that – at last – a backbone donor has been sourced; it must have been a rapid operation.

    It’s not about the Tobin Tax, that was nailed weeks ago, surely. Rather, it is surely an example of what racing drivers call ‘brake testing’, i.e. you bang on the brakes to test the resolution of the driver behind you…

    Thanks to those who have commented, I truly do believe this is a moment of hope, but ongoing strong resolve will be necessary as we are already witnessing a foretaste of the kind of pressure which will now be mounted. Perhaps for myself, after Ironies and Ironies Too, it is a good moment for a pause and a concentration on other matters, for we have surely now entered a new phase of this European misadventure!

    I don’t believe DC has grown a pair, he’s merely staving off a fatal split in the Party. Watch for a compromise with added “safeguards” for the UK.
