Poor old George Osbourne. Apparently he has no choice but to give potentially billions of British taxpayers money towards the Portugese bailout cause by the eurozone crisis. And I thought Parliament couldn't bind its successor.
What the real issue is here is another weak government on the EU which would rather cosy up with the likes of Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy and be part of their club, rather than stand up for hard working taxpayers. George Osbourne has slashed some front line services, the defence and Policing budgets, yet is still happy to submit more to the cash guzzling European Union. They already take £48 million a day from us. That is more than enough.
This is a disgracefully weak stand from our government who are caving in just as Labour did when it matters. They were able to argue that the Irish bailout was a necessity given our close links. Presumably us pouring millions and billions into Portugal is also fundamental to Britain's interests? Give me a break.
