Call Me Dave Reckons He Won A Victory?

John Ward posts on what he terms a 'secret memorandum' written by a German official of the EU Commission. One has to wonder if the media - who so like the 'rumour mill' - will bother to stir themselves in reporting this.

Assuming that John W's post is correct (and it is possible so why should one doubt it), on the basis that the 'pre-vetting' of national budgets will be 'resolved' at the planned October meeting - at which voting will be by QMV - resulting in Call Me Dave being outvoted and therefore having to comply with the resultant Directive or Regulation, can we save time and just have our referendum now please?

Christopher Booker posts on Call Me Daves 'conquest' of the EU Heads of Government meeting and shows how little CMD actually knows or realises. Booker ends with a most pertinent question of whether CMD may come to regret breaking his promise of a referendum on that Lisbon Treaty.

The only victory anyone will have with the EU elite is the day we leave. CMD and the rest of the politico's have yet to realise just how much fire they are playing with.

Doubt it. Pollies tend to blame others.
