For The Eventual Embalming.
"Nick Clegg has insisted that the UK "still has influence" over the EU's competitive agenda, and that it is "significant" that Britain has been granted observer status at the meetings for the new EU financial accord."
They can observe all they like. It's still an embalming process. How long it will take is the only question remaining to be answered. As that Canadian wannabe cook used to say, "Let's look at the evidence".
Fishing industry is a good place to begin. How thrilled and grateful we are being allowed to fish a meagre bit of our waters. A once mighty activity beloved of island races now controlled by mainland and limited coastline bullies. Utter madness.
A madness paling into insignificance when set against the collapse of the eurozone. Sure we are told to fear this Armageddon but trawler men could bring vessels out of mothballs for starters!
There is also the centuries old antagonism, often born of covetousness and jealousy, as ever.
As for the regulatory costs of the mad hatters' tea party, beloved of theMerkozy Duo , say no more, just weep
Well, we all know what a rotten cadaver the EU is. So all we have "to observe" Cleggy, is the embalming process. With any luck it will be completed before my own kicks in!
