Gerald Warner

Gerald Warner writes - as only Gerald Warner can - in the Scotsman with the title "Cameron's 'piece of paper' will be a blank cheque for the EU".

Some extracts:
"REJOICE! Rejoice! It is Dave's South Georgia moment. The greatest prime minister since Gordon Brown has won a stupendous victory over the European Union - in his own words, a "significant prize" - by restricting the increase in the EU budget to a paltry 2.9 per cent. Makes you proud to be British. Gawd bless yer, Mr Cameron, you're a toff! They don't like it up 'em… This latest British "victory" bears some uncomfortable resemblance to such historic triumphs as the Charge of the Light Brigade and the three previous Afghan Wars."

"Six months into his premiership, the EU wide boys have already taken the measure of Dave as a hollow man, full of wind and what's-it. It is a pity a larger proportion of the British electorate did not share that insight."
"Last week Dave described himself as a Eurosceptic. With Eurosceptics like that, who needs Ken Clarke?"

There seems to have arisen a climate of apathy, once again, in the general populace, as though the evil moment has passed and we are now on the road to freedom and prosperity. I wonder if the awful labour party years have worn us out and we now want to believe that our elite is looking after us again?
