And Now Over to Labour’s Emma Reynolds…

As Dave announces the details of this afternoon’s deal it it worth looking back at what some of his opponents have said in the past. Here is what Emma Reynolds, Labour’s Shadow Europe Minister, told SkyNews in November: “If he does get a good deal for British taxpayers then we will commend him for that but we wait to see the outcome of the negotiations”. The PM will no doubt be looking forward to her congratulations…

    Well if increasing our contribution to a shrinking budget is a success, I would hate to see what failure is.

    Except the euro parliament will block this deal.. and how is paying more a good deal for the UK?

  6. 6
    yeah, right... says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but if the UK contibution into a shrinking budget pot go up, British taxpayers are now paying an even larger proportion of subsidies to French peasant farmers and the Kinnock family’s pensions.

    Not exactly Mrs Thatcher, is he?

    The voters just wont realise that we’ll be paying more”

    Alas poor Dave don’t realise that voters aren’t that dim
    Unlike the Tory faithful there not taken in by him
    The UKIP vote will turf him out we know they marked his card
    This Cameron and Merkle scam is simply a charade

    And once mass immigration comes here early on next year
    The cut backs and the bedroom tax will stoke the Tory fear
    They’ll see just what a large amount of votes that UKIP stole

    ‘Outsourcing’ of all responsibility (come backs / litigation and blame) – is what The Labour & Coalition Governments do.

    This country’s people need to look just below the surface of all that happens – and there you ought to see the legal fraternity in all of its ugly guises.

    Surely by using a privatised company that reduces liability by devaluing all claims based on indirect breach of a duty to promote the right to education, health, a family and any indirectly discriminatory policy that would otherwise also be illegal. In effect is saves a lot of court cases and a lot of taxpayer money. I may have taken my favorite law module on International human rights some years ago.

    Isn’t it amazing that when the systems in place go wrong you use it for cheap party poiltical point scoring, something deliberately avoided in the Prime Minister’s own speech on on the Stafford Hospital report. It was actually some mandarin in the DoH who said the main thing is hospital bosses get bonuses if they stay solvent and seem to be able to tick most boxes whether true our not. He is probably in Room 101 now being tortured by a rich Sir Humphrey deep in some whitehall lair. Hopefully he’s a tory deep down and will be given electric shocks where it hurts him most.

    Sir Humphrey says:

    I think in the light of the last comment, the audience is a bit unimpressed with Cameron’s adherence to Blair’s treaty deal and digressing to casual sexual comments and racism. I think he should renegotiate the whole treaty pronto.

    Fortunately however, my secondees in Brussels have no intention to go down in such a compromising way and are at this very moment making it even more of a gentleman’s club for the way big business is placed only within the EU and not for example in exotic places like Norway (who are like and independent Scotland with more deadly pscyhopaths that Salmond). They are assisting in a long bribing and subsidy-laden cosying up with car manufacturers and electronics manufacturers across the globe. Leave at your peril and if you try to bash us any further they say they will stitch up a photo involving you DC, Rebecca Brooks and the Horse in the most compromising position imaginable!!!

    Cameron and the EU must think we are stupid to fall for this bit of play acting.
    A) we won’t get an in/out referendum from Cameron
    B) we finnish up paying More to the EU

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
