Could Cameron be a secret 'Phile' rather than a 'Phobe'?
An interesting idea, likely to be dismissed by sceptics, but if the euro-rescue measures which caused all the fuss go down the tubes then this crisis will go on for months and the veto could well appear in retrospect to be a mere detail. Certainly the markets have not reacted positively to the plan- far from it. Greece still seems heading for an early bath from the euro and even France 's economic health has been challenged by the ratings agency S and P's suggestion that its triple A rating should be downgraded.
Like very serious politician, whatever he says in public, he knows that Britain's best place is inside the EU and influencing its development rather than outside on its fringes but still beholden to all of its rules.
