I must admit, I've never had the pleasure of Harvey's, and I have drank the length and breadth of this great Union of our's!
Cliche I know, but none the less true, Southern beers tend to be too warm and too flat for me...I like my beer cold and with a head!
I may just take you up on that offer one day my friend,
I think Cameron and Clegg would bottle it and not offer us a referendum.
They know that it would be a close run thing, (the vast majority of people I know want to come out of the EU).
Listen to the people?
Only when suits!

Did you read the article?It said 'Britain'!So stop moaning ''everyone has it in for England''-Bloody Sasanach!
Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Madrid would slash civil service pay by 5 percent this year, freeze it in 2011, cut investment spending and pensions and axe 13,000 public sector jobs in a drive to meet EU deficit targets.
The announcement came two days after euro zone governments, the European Central Bank and the IMF agreed on a $1 trillion rescue package to stabilize the euro in exchange for pledges by highly indebted countries to pare down their deficits.
After months in denial about the need for tougher measures, Zapatero announced an estimated 15 billion euros ($19.05 billion) in additional savings this year and next, sparking anger from trade unions usually on good terms with his Socialist party.

Article 122 of the Lisbon Treaty:
1. Without prejudice to any other procedures provided for in the Treaties, the Council, on a proposal from the Commission, may decide, in a spirit of solidarity between Member States, upon the measures appropriate to the economic situation, in particular if severe difficulties arise in the supply of certain products, notably in the area of energy.
2. Where a Member State is in difficulties or is seriously threatened with severe difficulties caused by natural disasters or exceptional occurrences beyond its control, the Council, on a proposal from the Commission, may grant, under certain conditions, Union financial assistance to the Member State concerned. The President of the Council shall inform the European Parliament of the decision taken.

Although i am born and live in the UK..... I consider this place hell.
Remember, there's no such thing as heaven and hell. if there is the UK is Hell.
Where's heaven? It never existed.

Hopefully this will be the push needed for us to get completely out of the EU.
