Today in the House of Commons David Cameron excelled himself in the noble art of being as thick as pig’s excrement – either that or, where matters EU are concerned, he’s a slice short of a loaf.
He maintained that Norway pays more per head to the EU than does the UK (in answer to a question from Philip Davies- Con, Shipley) when this article shows that is not the case.
In answer to a question from Jack Dromey about the need to remain in the EU where the automotive industry is concerned, Cameron replied that it is relevant to the issue of the standards set in Europe and our being a rule maker and not a rule taker, which is very important for our auto industry. Standards are not set by the EU, standards are set by UN bodies and where the automotive industry is concerned standards are set by WP.29, part of UNECE. As for our being a ‘rule maker and not a rule taker’ the mind can but boggle at his thought processes!
