It is not only about what Mr Cameron wants, it is as much about what Europe wants.. If Mr Cameron does not want to be European lets have a bigger North Sea and widen the channel

It is stupid. It makes martyrs of people who do not deserve such a distinction. The death penalty has also proven to be costly and it has killed people who are proven to be innocent.

It is an abomination.
