Government Line on EU Humilation

This was just sent to Tory MPs:

We hear and we take notice, as always, of what Parliament has said.

MPs on both sides of the vote want to see EU spending kept down as effectively as possible at a time of restraint and reductions at home. The only difference is about the tactics of doing so.

The Prime Minister has taken the toughest position of any Prime Minister in history – a freeze has never been achieved before – and when you realise 17 out 26 other countries are net gainers from the budget these will obviously be difficult negotiations.

The Prime Minister will continue to do everything possible to achieve the best deal we can deliver for the British taxpayer.

This is all in contrast to a Labour Party who never achieved a freeze, never even asked for freeze and allowed vast increases to British contributions to the EU budget. For them this has been about cheap politics rather than taking responsibility for how we get the best deal for Britain.

        If Cameron cannot get 20% cut he should veto every thing that comes from EU till we get a cut.

        Or have a vote asking the people whether UK should leave EU.

          Personally, nothing less than a 100% cut will do.

          Brave Dave started foolishly saying no increase, then he mentioned a ‘reasonable increase’. He is a complete fool because the best thing that can happen is he goes to Europe and says I asked for an increase and faced defeat in local parliament, so it is out of my hands. THAT is a good negotiating position, but dishonest.
          What he should do as our elected leader is to say ‘I do not support anything that is bad for Britain or British people, so we all agree in the UK – NO MORE MONEY FOR EUROPE.

          My way of talking to ‘cast iron’ Dave is to vote UKIP until he leaves.

          That would be because we’re living in a one party state.

          But don’t be fooled into thinking that because your pro-Europe you’ve somehow got your way. You’ve been told that your ‘having it’ just like the rest of us, its just that you’ve yet to learn that they don’t care what you think.

          Its a shame that even though you don’t agree with us you can’t see that how we’ve been treated makes this countries claim to be a democracy a sham. Still I suppose with you its a case of ‘everyone has rights except those that I disagree with.’

          Spot, some people really do think that if we leave the EU we will not be able to trade with the EU. They get this false notion from europhile politicians.

          The real answer is that the UK and EU are full members of the WTO, so the UK will enjoy freer trade than now (since the EU’s existing ‘single market’ rules are both onerous and expensive).

          Even if the EU was spiteful, the WTO rules and procedures provide for dispute settlements. Besides the EU sells more to us than we sell to them so it is not in their own interests.

            A lot of what is counted as our sales to the EU is in fact just exports passing through Rotterdam. In fact it is then sent on to elsewhere in the world.

            Our freedom to run our own economy, free of undemocratic interference from Euro politicians and Goldman Sachs placemen, is more important, and will allow us better to compete in the world.

    “The Prime Minister has taken the toughest position of any Prime Minister in history – a freeze has never been achieved before – and when you realise 17 out 26 other countries are net gainers from the budget these will obviously be difficult negotiations”

    What is so difficult about saying NO? All Cameron has to do is say NO, we cannot afford any increase at all, why is he so afraid? And negotiations have not yet started and he comes over as wholly defeatist before the event, what kind of message does that send to the kommissars in Brussels? In order to negotiate properly the other side has to respect you, the truth is that the kommissars of Brussels know Cameron is a weak coward.

    If we had a real PM he would be full of confidence and fully prepared to dictate terms to Brussels telling them what the UK is prepared to pay. Even before he goes to his masters in Brussels he has lost because he has the mindset of a loser, even before the negotiations have started he believes he has failed so fail he most certainly will. Why is Cameron so frightened of the Brussels Mafia?

    What is lacking is self confidence and self assurance and courage, we clearly see a cowardly and weak PM unable and unwilling to stand up for British interests, if he goes with a defeatist mindset to a negotiations where the other parties know for a fact that he will not stand up and fight or issue any red lines then he has lost before he ever begins, he is a loser.

        Now that is the way to negotiate, you go in hard and with supreme self confidence and fully aware of the weakness of the other side, knowing these weaknesses you fully exploit them for your own advantage. Cameron goes to Brussels fully expecting to lose.

        But we have a PM that goes to Brussels as a loser clearly telling the other side that he is going to lose and that he will not bring any pressures or threats to bear, of course they are going to walk all over him if he presents himself as a door mat.

          Are all the other countries going to follow Mr Cameron and if so where is he going to lead them ?

          If you say “no ” at this party I think it means goodbye .

          You can of course try to negotiate free trade agreements but I cannot see much appetite for this in mainland Europe .

          The British people have ended up with David Cameron as Leader because he is the Leader they deserve .
