Nephilim 5pts A three non-euro states rule for objections to an EU proposal is two too many. Non-euro countries need the right to stand alone - & say "No"- alone, if need be. After all, both Britain & Denmark have needed to stand alone against the EU over issues that were important to them in the past, & for which they needed opt-outs. If that happened when the aim in the past was - generally speaking - to keep everyone on board, it will be even more necessary in future when such restraints are likely to be abandoned by the more integrationist member countries. This also applies where Eurozone countries act under ‘enhanced cooperation’ independently of the wishes of some or all of the non-euro states. In this case, each one of them should have an inalienable right of appeal if they feel that the eurozone countries are endangering the single market &/or discriminating against them as non-euro members.Otherwise, it's all a waste of time - isn't it? If we can't have what we want, we might as well leave the EU. Indeed, if Britain can't have its membership on its own terms, it might as well go elsewhere. And save ourselves a lot of time & debate wasted over what Mr Cameron, I suspect, will shortly claim to be his wonderful idea of "associate EU membership".
