Mrs Merkel has suggested that all European countries need to be willing to surrender more sovereignty to give the EU powers to prevent another Greek-style eurozone crisis.
Well, I don't think so darling, and neither does Dave. He has an effective veto in this area and puts it thus:
''Britain obviously is not in the euro and Britain is not going to be in the euro, and so Britain would not be agreeing to any agreement or treaty that drew us further into supporting the euro area.''
Well said. Well, at least well intended. I just hope this is not one of Dave's "cast iron guarantees" If only the weasley Brown had not crept in the back door to sign the Lisbon Treaty, we might not even be having this conversation. None of my regular readers will be surprised that I want out of Europe altogether. We don't need it, and going by today's account, for once, we have the upper hand. Let us hope David Cameron stands firm.
