I admit that I have been a bit absorbed in work and Severn FM recently but I have to say the whole European/Cameron situation has me baffled. Before he went out to the summit last week, the overwhelming opinion was that if he gave into anything that harmed the City of London then that was a bad thing, he had to protect Britain. And in this I wholeheartedly agree. However, from what I can tell, he did this, and now he is being put through the ringer for doing it.
I am not really a fan of Europe, and what gets handed down to us, though like anything else in Politics, there is probably a whole host of issues that I do not realise that come down from Europe, but on the whole, I see a lot of money going out there, and not much coming back. Especially considering that we are not part of the Euro (and what a blessing that decision has been).
I’m not normally in the habit of defending Tories, but in this instance, I think someone needs to explain to me current turn of events is so bad. But one condition please, can it be real factual issues and not just the “it might” or “well, possibly….”. Will we stop trading in Europe? (I don’t think so). Is it important that the City of London as a financial institution is protected? (Yes it is). If Europe comes up with a good idea for a law can we just copy it anyway? (yes we can).
So, can someone explain what I missed? Please do educate me!
