It has been a good day and despite a number of planned phone calls and one or two unplanned calls, the Gorse Fox has managed to get a lot of work done.

Gorse Fox notes that Mr Cameron seems to have a good day, too. He seems to have agreed a reduction in the EU budget. The only concern now is the threat from the members of the EU Parliament to force a secret ballot on ratification. (That way they cannot be held accountable, individually, if they scupper the deal). Given that their accounts have be qualified for all but one of the last 20 years - and last year there was question over 89 Billion Euros - you have to conclude that this is a deeply flawed and probably corrupt organisation.

I think Frau Merkel will give any German MEP who dares to scupper the reduced budget a handbagging that will put an end to their careers. Mr. Cameron may want to adopt a similar approach to his own.
