Germans beg us to stay in the EU.

No mention of the ex-Princess of Wales in that story? The Daily Diana are slipping!

We're one of the few net contributors to the EU. If we leave the Germans have to find even more money to prop up the EU. Not surprising they don't want us to go.

We're actually the second biggest net contributor to the EU after the Germans themselves. With a billion quid a week going to the Eurocoffers, we spend considerably more on the EU than we spend on defence at a time when the country is fighting a war.

Just as well though. Those MEP expenses won't pay themselves, will they?

So true, unlike Sarkozy, Merkel seems to realises that its going to cost the krauts a lot more cash to try & stave off the inevitable crash, almost definately more than her electorate are willing to stump up should Britain leave!
But sod 'em all, we should leave ASAP to save our own arses never mind about keeping on helping to fill the trough with cash we can't afford for the euroswine!!

Stuff the E U, the thing should always have been an Anglo/German set up with the Frogs just dangling along as a whipping boy, the rest could tag along if they could afford to but must shove off if they ever defaulted.

"The German Chancellor said Britain would remain an important member of the European Union despite not toeing the line".

Intersting use of words. Who drew the line we are expected to toe? makes the UK sound like an erring employee.

We should have a vote on leaving, sooner the better. It's an extravagance we cannot afford. We make our own people redundant, slash our pensions but chuck money at Europe. Time to cut the apron strings.

**** em - I say we do a Switzerland with nukes. Mind our own business and put the EU money towards building a big feck off fence around ports of entry.

This sudden friendliness to the UK might have something to do with the fact that the EU treaties require unanimous consent to amend. Cameron can:

a) Refuse to sign

or

b) Threaten to hold a referendum (which will amount to much the same thing).

Cameron can gain further leverage by saying continuing to say Non/Nein until he gets cast iron legal opt outs. For the monent at least time is on Cameron's side...

The krauts are shitting themselves in case the House of Cards comes crashing down. They've still got bitter memories of the 'Great Depression' of the 30's.

It could also have something to do with Cameron,telling the IMF to do one,over any money donations to bail out the Euro,and also pointing out that the IMF is there to help out Countries,and not the failing Euro! :judge:

The Chief bitch at the IMF, the one the yanks nobbled Strauss Kahn for, to get her into office, is currently telling the sponging aid dependant Africans to batten the hatches, a storm is coming. She should know.

If Westerwelle has been grovelling, the Hermannic Reichspresse are ignoring it. There's a lot of anti Brit coverage lately. It seems that we may have messed with their train set. On the othe hand the mincing breach loader Guido Westerwelle is politically isolated and obviously incompetent, he's deniable and they will jetison him if it gets embarrassing.
