British interest defended!!!

Well if German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck is to be believed. Astonishingly, and entirely contrary to all recent tradition.
"There is clearly a lobby in London that wants to defend its competitive advantage tooth and nail,"

Well blimey, how terribly uncommunitaire of them.

I suppose it is just a shame that it isn't the British government or opposition, just Boris Johnson, UKIP and the city.

Of course Germany would never defend German economic interest, perish the thought.

All of the continental countries are far more nationalist than the UK. Just look at the cars on their roads. German cars in Germany; French cars in France; Italian ... well you get the picture.

If the europhiles weren't so keen to prostrate us for the EU's delectation we would get a better deal out of the EU. Then - who knows? - the great British public might end up being less against the EU. But then, being dim is one of the qualifications for being a europhile.
