Nice to see someone bringing up the Rotterdam 'wrinkle' at last.

I've been puzzled as to why an otherwise intelligent and capable person like David Cameron should show such support for the kind of bad deal that the UK gets from the EU. Then over the weekend I read somewhere, it might have been on here, that the Kinnocks have recieved up to 10 million in assorted benefits since Neil quit the leadership of the Labour party. They were both, Neil and Glenys, employed by the EU. Could it be that the carrot of the EU gravy train plus the allure of the power to be weilded in the EU is enough to turn the wisest of heads? I'll never know for certain, no-one will be tempting insignificant me, but it does answer the question of why people at the top of UK politics make such bad decisions on our behalf.
