What really strikes me is that here, at a time when the EU needs the UK far more than the UK needs the EU, when the in/out decision is in the balance, the EU cannot find it within themselves to compromise and offer anything of any substance.
Cameron is being a PR puppet, well we knew and expected that. But it’s the 24 carat tin ear of the EU that’s so enlightening. They really are utterly incapable of anything other than their dogmatic path to mediocrity. And if we sign up to it, well more fool us.
As I said to a pro-EU chap on Twitter the other day, the EU is its own worst enemy. The Euro, Russia/Ukraine, migration – these are all crises of the EU’s own making.
