CAM’S SHAM SHOWS FOLLY OF EURO CLUB
FORGIVE me if I don’t join the general cheering and for-he’s-a-jolly-good-fellowing ringing in David Cameron’s ears.
The Prime Minister returned from Brussels on Friday to a hero’s welcome. The man who had single-handedly saved Britain from being squashed like a lame hedgehog under the wheels of the European juggernaut. A new Churchill. A new Thatcher. With the greatest respect, Prime Minister… BOLLOCKS!
If Cameron had thought he could get away with signing the treaty tying us closer to Europe, his biro would have been out of his pocket faster than Boris Johnson’s cock comes out tyo play when he spots a pretty lady.
Cam said he was protecting the financial industry in the City of London. A red herring the size of Moby Dick, this one.
Make no mistake, he would have sold his fat cat pals in red braces down the river in an instant. Just like our fishing fleet was scuttled when we signed up to the Common Market 40 years ago.
In fact, it would have been a popular move. Putting the boot into the bankers would have played to packed houses in the present climate.
No, the real reason Cam did not put pen to paper is that his backbenchers, the public, the popular press – and several members of his Cabinet – would have gone batsh*t.
For him to have returned having shackled us even tighter to the bankrupt basket case would have been political suicide.
He was saving his ministerial motor, not saving Britain.
Here’s the truth. Cameron, like all leaders of our mainstream parties, is pro-european. He supports our continued membership of the European Union.
He supports us being a signatory to the Treaty of Rome, the basis of the EU. And that states, in black and white, that members should forge an “ever closer union”.
That ultimately means membership of the euro, it means letting German bankers sign off our Budget before Parliament gets a look-in. It means European courts trumping our own.
The whole point of the EU is the destruction of the nation state, Britain included.
They’ve not been sneaky about it – the aim is central to and explicitly stated in the Treaty of Rome.
British politicians will not say this openly because the British people will not have it, and rightly so.
Even before the current euro turmoil erupted, we had no place in the European Union. We should not have joined and, it is increasingly clear, they don’t want us as members.
Britain has nothing to lose – and everything to gain – by getting out.
What we save on membership fees paid to the European club could get our finances back on track in four years. The legislation could be passed in a day.
But there is no party leader with the balls to do this, to risk the fury of the BBC and the chattering polenta-munching classes.
Labour’s Denis Macshane, the fanatically pro-eu former Europe Minister, put it best. Last week, he said: “There is now little point in Britain staying in the EU. It is an historic turning point and Britain might as well get out now, as Europe’s future will be settled without us.”
No doubt he said it in the manner of a wife saying: “OK, you GO to the pub then, see if I care!” But he was spot on.
Will we hear David Cameron utter those words? The day he does, I’ll suck off John Prescott at noon on Westminster Bridge. SPEAKER’S wife Sally Bercow and posh handicrafts fan Kirsty Allsopp are having a bit of a spat on Twitter.
As Sir Harry of Hill would say: “Only one way to sort this out… FIGHT!!!”
In custard, preferably.
