Chancellor Alistair Darling has warned against more European Union regulation of the UK financial services industry.
Warned against? Fucking warned against? Listen, badger brows, we don't have the authority to do that any more, because our esteemed fuckwit signed all that away. That came into effect yesterday. Fancy thinking that today you can then send "warnings" to the EU. Can't you see how meek and pathetic this looks? Bit of a case of barn door and horse I think.
Mr Darling is expected to warn other EU finance ministers he will not accept new powers for European authorities to take decisions on future bail-outs for which British taxpayers might have to pick up the bill.
But do you have the authority to reject these powers, Darling? I bet you'll find that you don't. Welcome to the Lisbon Treaty.
