The Cameron government and the EU

from Nosemonkey’s EUtopia by nosemonkey

OK, I was wrong ? Prime Minister Cameron it is.

I just hope I?m also wrong in my dread of our new Foreign Secretary, William Hague ? the most strongly eurosceptic person ever to hold that position, the mastermind behind the Conservatives? withdrawal from the EPP in the European Parliament, and a man who, back in 2001, led an explicitly anti-EU general election campaign that revolved around the populist nonsense-slogan ?Ten Days to Save the Pound?.
