Euroscepticism

As mentioned in a previous post, British PM David Cameron has begun his re-election campaign early by giving his long awaited Euro speech and promising an in/out vote on Britains membership of the European Union. That should keep his back benchers happy, get Labour on the back foot, and keep Nigel Farage quiet for a while.

At PMQ's (Prime Ministers Questions) in Parliament yesterday, he made it quite clear that he personally believes Britain will fare much better if we remain part of the EU.

Methinks he's wearing rose-tinted spectacles.

(*Warning, old joke coming up...)

In David Camerons vision of Europe he thinks that all the cooks are French, the policemen are English, the mechanics are German, the lovers are Italian, and the bankers are Swiss.

But in the real Europe the cooks are English, the policemen are German, the mechanics are French, the lovers are Swiss, and the bankers are Italian.

P.S. I should also add that any readers who object to this post on the grounds that it's not politically correct, displays bad taste, or blatantly encourages the use of european stereotypes, please watch last years Eurovision Song Contest before getting back to me  ;-)
