RikH 5pts What I am missing is a reaction by the UK government. Pro-active (as in some months ago) would even have been a lot better.Basic case is leave EZ leave EU. Leave EZ not leave EU simply requires treatychange.Which means an ideal moment to start with good old blackmailing. As said the UK should have brought this up months ago. Along the lines of treatychange means referendum in the UK. It is of course mainly strategical by Farage that he demands an early referendum (as he knows that Cameron can never deliver before that time and Cameron's selfcreated lack of credibility will remain playing up).Good thing that an exit would take so long that Greece would have to leave anyway.Would have meant a win-win-win for Cameron imho. Best possible way to get a favourable treaty change and get this off the table asap. Best way to win the election (results and kept promises (unusual for politicians) and credibility boost). Best way to make IP redundant.
