Tho I guess that plays into the divides the establishment has created down the centuries to ensure that we do not act as one people across these Isles and to ensure they can say, only they know what is best for everyone.
And we certainly won't get a referendum until they decide it is in their interest to hold one.

Whilst i get what you are saying, the plans put forward by Merkel and Sarkozy would rip money from the City. The problem with that is that, owing to the continued problems in the Eurozone, we have not yet been able to reconfigure the make up of our economy - over 25% of our GDP still comes from the city (the plans to go into a more manufacturing based economy have been destroyed by the problems in the eurozone, who account for about 60% of our trade).
As such, at present Cameron has no option other than to protect the City as best he can.For all those (like me) that want economic reforms, the stark reality is that it just won't happen until the conditions are present to allow it to happen.

Its been clear ever since webcameron "gained" control of the U.K. that he was going to look after his rich friends at the expense of everybody else. He is nothing more than a worthless power rat who will hopefully soon go the way of his retarded 8yr old son. His whole persona reeks of weakness and EVEN! with the corporation of london's backing (which includes fleet street BTW) couldn't deliver a clear election victory.
Both the U.K. and the U.S. have so many sad little corporate puppets running things that the western political machine now resembles sesame street.
Viva la revolution, our time is coming!!
