    Call me confused, which is not surprising with the extremely obtuse wording of the act, but it doesn’t seem to affect us as it’s only for members with the Euro.

      Fair point. OK, here is a post on it:

      What has it to do with us?

      Although the UK is not a signatory to this, the fact that it was adopted by the Council means that the UK approved it.

      That was October 7th. Last night, if you look at the wording:

      Be it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

      1 Approval of EU decision relating to stability mechanism

      … we were quite involved, as a nation, in bringing this down on member states, i.e. we have f***ed them over. This is at the same time that we rebelled against any further outlay on our part.

      Quite apart from us being detested for this in future, it will come back on us in the form of contributions to the EU from our purse as a member state of the Union.

        Except, hopefully, we won’t be a member by then ….
