WELL DONE DAVID CAMERON FOR HAVING THE GUTS
Well done David Cameron for having the guts to veto the horrible EU - I didn't think he had it in him. Great! Now maybe some others will also display a bit of bottle.
People need to stop worrying about likely short-term consequences and making careers out of compromise and just simply get into the habit of making a stand against bad ideas.
The European Union is one big bad idea. It's just a bloated and dishonest gravy train which seeks to impose its dictatorial will on everyone.
It is not the duty of any country to look after the interests of other countries - it is the duty of a country to look after the interests of its own people. If it was possible to turn the whole of Europe into a single state (country), then it would be fine - but it's not possible - Europe ain't America - a young country with it's various states all speaking the same language.
Interesting to see what happens next.
