#5 tax harmonisation
WTF? So the Brits have more sense than to get themselves entangled in Europe's fiscal malfeasance. C'est dommage.

#8 NS, would that we could. I'm afraid that the toy boy and the rest of his ilk are firmly embedded in the EU elite and are just playing their role. Things haven't gone exactly as planned or Blair, Brown or Cameron would already have the UK in the Euro.
Anything Cameron says seems to be nothing but blue smoke or stupidity. He, as far as I can see, has no desire to move the slightest bit away from the EU. There will come a time when the EU tells the UK to $#!t or get off the pot on the Euro and after much huffing and puffing Cameron would bend right over.
