German members of the European Parliament are furious at Cameron’s veto

Today, remarkably, is the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Maastricht Treaty which created the EU. Today, after Britain vetoed a proposed treaty by which the German-controlled EU would gain control over the national budgets of the EU members, the other EU members agreed to sign such a treaty among themselves, creating a fiscally unified Europe without Britain. But European politicians, especially Germans, are very angry at British Prime Minister Cameron for standing in the way of their grand objective. They are saying that Britain should either join with the others or leave the EU.

It was Britain that stood alone against German-dominated Europe in 1940. Might Britain stand alone against German-dominated Europe today? Given the spongy nature of David Cameron, one of the most shapeless, faceless men of the modern era, such an event would be most unlikely. But stranger things have happened.
