French President Nicolas Sarkozy has described David Cameron as acting like an 'obstinate kid' over protectionism of the City of London.
In an interview with French magazine, Le Canard Enchaine, the very short and not very intimidating French husband of some pretentious Italian singer/lingerie model decided to do a bit of political grandstanding over the talks, which saw Britain reject the French and German EU treaty.
After his long and thoughtfulÂ 'Obstinate kid' pigeonholing of David Cameron,Â Sarkozy spoke about his political out maneuvring of David Cameron and described Cameron's argument as politically defeated by the rest of Europe.
This outburst by Sarkozy will only help to galvanise the UK political resolve as the British public baulks en-mass at the possible Â£30 billion contribution to the IMF bailout fund for the rest of Europe.
Angela Merkel described Britain as an important partner in the EU, so are Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy playing good cop/bad cop politics?
The recent reports of retribution against the UK from federalismÂ fundamentalist factions within the EU may be nothing more than hot air and the tears of rejection from a broken hearted fanatic but the rhetoric of Europe is becoming more and more severe as the days go by.
The people of Europe have been bullied and frightened into wanting an ever more invasive European Union, which will bring stability both militarily and economically……this promise is based on a lie.
