He went to Brussels as the British bulldog, full of tenacity and verve.

All the European countries unite and give the British contestants “nul points” when they perform.

So why be any different in their political approach to our Prime Minister in his reform dealings?

Will MPs have any conscience and think of the country they were elected to represent?

Or will their own welfare kick in, their future in government their main concern?

That will be nothing new to many who sit in the white halls of power, nodding donkeys to their parties rather than to the welfare of the country and its electorate.
