No, we should not pay for profligacy!

By Mike Cunningham On November 1st, 2012

Ignore, if you will, the blowhard mouthings of Labour Leader Ed Milliband.

Also take no notice of the ‘pre-historics’ of all three Parties when they say that the Tory rebels have  shot themselves in their collective feet with their Amendment vote on the European Budget.

What we saw and heard yesterday evening was the first signs of a responsible democracy returning to Westminster. The Tories, along with their temporary allies in the Labour Party know only too well that if Cameron exercises his ‘veto’ over the Budget if there is no acceptance of either real cuts to a bloated seven-year budget, that same Budget will be voted through exactly as prophesied, but on a yearly basis. We could hardly expect the collective begging bowls of the Eastern and Southern wedges of the Union to be withdrawn or diminished.

But, for the first time in a long time, the Westminster  Executive has been told that a different outcome should be proposed, and when it is defeated, as is more than likely, the European Union will have been placed on notice that the first signs of a true successor to Margaret Thatcher is in embryo.

They should take notice, but will they mend their profligate ways? Not if the House of European History is but one example of the European mind at work!
