Somefinks up, ctd. I'm wondering whether the French and German banks are in much worse nick than outsiders have realised, and that something in Cameron's terms would have revealed the fact. So Merkozy settled for the inconvenience of the 26 - or whatever lesser number materialises - rather than risk a 27. If so (and it's just a guess)then a shit-fan coincidence might be close.

In a way he is saying what I have read from several British and European sources and relevantly neutral North American sources. Britain and the EU was never a comfortable fit.

An article I read some time ago explaining European attitudes pointed out that the UK was the only European participant in WWII that was not occupied by an enemy. An unpleasant experience the contitental countries will pay dearly to avoid repeating. A little too dearly is reasonable possibility. But without that experience the British will be a constant irritant in their plans and actions.

This is probably better for both the UK and the EU.

I've also been wondering why Cameron thought it necessary to protect the Single Market. On reflection, it's obvious. Merkozy must have been planning to exclude British financial firms from continental markets.

Tanx Greato Hank! Just the link for gettin' the gears turnin' on a early (fairly) Sunday mornin'.

OK JK, that's brilliant.
I hope your Cadillac is warm and running nicely this morning.
