…the prime minister told Tory MPs on Wednesday night that Britain would press for concessions in EU negotiations that are likely to take place on how to manage the eurozone more effectively.
No dates. Nothing specific. Just a general statement of something, sometime, in the future, if it can be negotiated. Dare I say ‘It sounds like the usual bollocks to me’?
Cameron is moving words around, but what difference will there be? He urgently needed to pacify any possible revolt from his own MPs and from Steve Hilton who’s threatened resignation over this, while he asks the Murdochs to back off for a while. The Murdochs will be back later, covertly demanding more integration of Britain into Europe, to fend off pressure from the EU Competition Commissioner, the only person on the planet who can threaten their worldwide TV football monopoly – their greatest cash cow.
It’s back to sounding eurosceptic for a while, and raising backbenchers’ hopes before the inevitable climbdown that will follow in a few months time. And that’s all Cameron is buying – time – time for the EU to push through its integration into a single political and financial entity without opposition from Conservative backbench MPs. Once the EU federal state is established, it already has the power within the Lisbon Treaty to force Britain to adopt the Euro.
