.....to take a strong stance on Europe and the Euro, by protecting the City of London?
Could be more contentious than a cable thread!

He had no choice, it was either that or accept more Brussels taxes to bail out a currency which was flawed from the start.
Most definitely yes. But to confirm ask Gordon Brown what he would do, if Cameron is doing the opposite we will know it's right.
You could argue (and I'm not necessarily doing so), that he is protecting the very people who caused the mess in the first place (and contribute to party funds), as well as playing to Tory supporters; and has placed himself outside the "club", who can reform and carry on without him. Britain needs a strong Eurozone, and his actions could have the opposide effect.
I am only playing "Devils Advocate", and would have put the opposite argument if necessary.
Pretty far right, I'd say
Whigs rule (or not)!
Of course he is right. We as a country are entirely reliant on the Financial sector for survival and accordingly it needs to be protected. We really don't produce much else as a country worth talking about, and the amount of cash that they pump back into our economy from their profits and in the medium of corporation tax and their own personal PAYE is phenomenal. The sooner the banker haters get that through their thick collective skulls the better in my opinion.

We need a referendum on Europe, overwhemingly we would vote to get out and save ourselves a fortune.
We should never have gone in in the first place, unfortunately I voted for the losing side.
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
The quicker we as a country diversify the better, having a small amount of spoilt, privilegd, self centered,b*****ds influencing the way this country is run is not healthy. The little weasles got us into this mess so why should they not pay the piper ?
Cameron's not looking after Britains intrests, he's taking care of the golden mile and Londons intrests and stuff the rest of us !
Sorry to burst your bubble FATS but that little area of London pays for the rest of you.
What do you propose we diversify in to? We have been institutionally rubbish at physically making anything for over fifty years. Except for hifi that is.
Your probally right in one aspect gazzip we don' t produce no where near what we used to. And there's the'' rub'' all our
eggs in one basket. WE as a nation produced very high quality products , and in some cases still do. BUT we stupidly gave it
all away. So IF that little area of London is so succesful WHY is it in such a mess ? And WHY as we the tax payer are having
to pay for their Greed. THE bubble as you put it, burst three years ago! ps most of the so called british hifi is produced
Sorry to burst your bubble FATS but that little area of London pays for the rest of you
Apparently only 10% of the UKs GDP comes from finance. 60% of Londons GDP is finance, so don't see how they are paying for the rest of us. BAE and Rolls Royce are paying my cities way.
Oh, and we are still pretty good at pharmisuticals, weaponry and petrol, all wholesome things.

Unfortunately there's no going back in respect of us mass producing physical stuff in the foreseeable future. The Far East currently has that market sewn up. We simply cannot compete because they do it cheaper and, sorry to say it, better. T
he irony is that give it a decade or two we may well be mass producing stuff again for sale to the richer far East, such is the current financial schism that we are witnessing. The bottom line in the short term however is that we must protect our basket of eggs in central London until we have something to replace them with. At that point I will support the notion of smashing them to bits. However we are not there yet so getting behind them in the short term is the only sane answer IMHO.
We have either the second or third largest aerospace industry in the world (depending which ranking system you use). The idea that all our country's money only comes from the city is a fallacy.
It is a fact however that over 50% of Tory party funding comes from the city, just sayin....
(not saying I disagree with what Cameron did, I am still undecided. Lots to get my head around)
