The thing about UK PM David Cameron is that, at heart,  HE is a europhile with delusions;

David Cameron has attacked the “interference” and “bossiness” of Brussels bureaucrats but said the “beating heart of Britain” knows we need to remain in the European Union. He is expected to set out plans to repatriate some powers from Brussels to Britain – and then give the public a vote on whether they back the new relationship. This is likely to happen in 2017 or 2018.

Three points;

1.The next general election is in 2015 and Cameron will not be in  a position to offer any such referendum in 2017.

2. The purpose of this speech is to try and create the appearance of him doing something about the EU in order to defuse the rise of UKIP.

3. The EU is getting more and more politically unified as it copes with existential and fiscal crisis. The idea that the UK can “renegotiate” a “new” relationship whilst staying in it is lunatic. Further, why seek a new table on the Titanic?

This is spin and nothing else.

  1. ‘After the next Election’. a possible referendum in 2015, blah blah blah .. after reading many blogs on this subject, it does appear that all this 2015, after the next election and all those pledges and promises beyond June 2014 does have some meaning to it, according to most of the information I have read, all this Gerrymandering is to just get the Europhiles over and beyond the date of June 2014, then bugger all can be done due to the Lisbon Treaty taking full effect and force on that date.

    One thing for sure, when Cameron promises anything on Europe and in particular Brussels, you can be rest assured he is lying through his back teeth, and that is a ‘Cast iron guarantee’

  2. I doubt many UKIP’ers would believe anything Camoron says.

    As I have said before when he lied over the Lisbon Cast Iron etc. Peoples trust is like virginity. Once you have destroyed/ lost it then thats it.

    He’s targetting the potential UKIP’rs the tory waverers and given the mans deep unpopularity within his own party I think he has a mountain to climb. Take a look at how the tory part is losing it’s membership…presently at a record low I believe.

    I never liked him, when David Davies lost then the tories started the present slow motion car crash. They couldn’t even beat Gordon McSnotgobbler…the most deeply unpopular inept PM ever.

    Putting aside any ‘Conspiracy theories’ and the constant wailing of .. Blair, Mc Doom or Cameron, it is more apparent than ever that they are all working from the same hymn sheet .. Why?

    As for Gordon Mc Mental Brown, Cameron the ultimate brazen liar in chief is starting to make him look like a true Statesman.

    Just why some people are shocked or dismayed when the likes of Cameron lie is beyond me to be honest, they lie for a living, it’s what they do.

  4. They are of course liars, Harri. Although they probably know what gerrymandering means.

    Would that be sort of like knowing what an Afghani is 😉

    You were proved wrong there mate… again.

  7. Indeed. It would be like knowing that a question mark comes at the end of a question or knowing how to spell Israel.

    The “-i” in Persian and the “-iy” in Arabic are both roughly the same thing: an ending added to a place, tribe or characteristic to make an adjective, which can also be used as a noun or even a name. So “Farsi” is the language of Fars, or Pars, the heartland of what was once Persia and is now Iran. “Farsi” and “Persian” are thus the same word, differently realised. Arabic also proliferates such words, which can be adjectives, nouns and including proper names: names like al-Libi and al-Tonsi merely mean “the Libyan” and “the Tunisian”.

    Since -i/-iy can be added to nearly anything, it’s handy for neologisms. Pakistan was named by acronym, derived from “Punjab, Afghanistan, Kashmir” and so forth, plus the common “-stan”, Persian for “home of”. The natural thing to was to call its people “Pakistanis”.

    But “Afghan” as a demonym preceded “Afghanistan” as a country. Its people, therefore, are properly Afghans in English. In this way they’re a bit like Baloch, Uzbeks, Tajiks and Kazakhs. In fact, “Pakistanis” are the only common and indisputably correct modern “stanis”. This was probably confusing Mr Panetta.

  8. I think Dogis has the best point:
    “Peoples trust is like virginity. Once you have destroyed/ lost it then thats it.”

    I think David Cameron has proved himself as deceptive and devious over Europe as any of his predecessors, and the true blue Tories are finally waking up to the fact that they cannot trust him on our involvement with the EU.
    I anticipate that many more Conservatives will vote for UKIP. I hope so, because I firmly believe that our country needs to rescue democracy from the greedy power hungry politicians. This just might be the issue that sets the process in motion.

  9. //I anticipate that many more Conservatives will vote for UKIP.//

    Why should they start now?

    UKIP has been on offer for around 20 years and still hasn’t got a single seat in the House of Commons.

    It is, however, amusing that it has got a few people elected to the European Parliament.

    “Why should they start now?”

    “I think David Cameron has proved himself as deceptive and devious over Europe as any of his predecessors, and the true blue Tories are finally waking up to the fact that they cannot trust him on our involvement with the EU.”

    The Brits by and large are traditionalists and trusting when it comes to politics. The gulf between trust and the exercise of power has become too wide. People want real change.

  11. …and the true blue Tories are finally waking up…

    Really! Any evidence to support that, Agit?

  12. A little something that just about sums up everyone’s feelings on the news and the politics of the moment, and from about whatever team or side you root for.

    Take a moment, – even sing-a-long, I know you will want to.

    See it , heed it, and then we can all be friends again. – and dont forget to smile…:-)

  13. And might I ask why my comment above is ‘awaiting moderation’?

    Is this some new Youtube/Google stitch up – or what? 🙂

  14. Agit – your second link takes me to:

    Michael Burnett: It’s time to take UKIP seriously – and attack their core idea that Britain should leave the EU

    and this is a Conservative? In any case, UKIP is just as controlled the other ‘approved’ parties.
