Not only is Iain Martin writing about and watching the wrong people, try posing a comment on his latest scribblings. 35 comments Comments for this page are closed.
Last one was a month ago. Perhaps he forgot to wind the clockwork that upgrades his column?http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... qus_thread
I did enjoy the comment posted under Rapscallion
Iain. You don't know what you are writing about and you are displaying the MSM's classic lack of understanding vis-a-vis anything to do with the EU.
The meeting this week is a European Council meeting, not a 'summit' or an Intergovernmental Conference (IGC). It is an IGC that is needed to submit any kind of treaty change.
Therefore there won't be any changes anytime soon. An IGC merely kicks off the process of Treaty changes - which inter alia requires the assent of 27 members, and with some requiring referendums, it is not something that can be achieved quickly. Time has therefore run out for 'fiscal union'
Guess they turned the comments off before he got any further pastings.
