I was in two minds last night whether to develop my last post to fully take apart Cameron's latest referendum wheeze. The 'I'm too tired to bother, shooting fish in a barrel requires more skill' won out and so I went to bed.
However Cranmer has done the business this morning, so we don't have to - he's not an 'appy Archbishop. As he rightly concludes nothing has changed. What's encouraging though is in the subsequent MSM comments Cameron is taking significant flak, few believe him. In short he has shot his bolt. Cast iron, 3-line whips, weasel words, appearing to change his mind literally overnight, and non existent vetoes have all taken their toll. It will be interesting to see polling figures in the next few days.
The EU and the Euro has hit an existential crisis. And to 'lead us' through this crisis we have a weak, shallow, clueless and unprincipled man who's flapping about like the dying actions of a fish in a rapidly drying up pond.
