Nick Clegg Wants to Attend the EU Summit In January 2012; Maybe Not

It has been a month since my last post on the EU treaty and break down in coalition as well as in the public opinion, whether David Cameron has made a right decision to veto the treaty and whether this has placed Britain into the semi-detached position with Europe. And it seems more clear now, while some EU leaders are fuming of frustration, others- had deep thoughts on the new changes and stepped out aside until further negotiations are made.

EU leaders of Czech republic and Hungary had also refused to sign the treaty , which consist the taxation harmonization for all 27 Eurozone countries; consequently making a huge impact on their independent tax policies. Although both countries had agreed to cooperate in finding the right solution; the remedy is still has not been found.

The Eurozone leaders, should allow relaxation in the new treaty to the countries like Sweden, Czech Republic and Hungary that do not use the Euro, as total union of reforms may badly harm their independently run economies, tax structure and fiscal policies. Perhaps, instead of mentioning the two tier Europe (in my own opinion that simply should be countries who can pay their debts and those who cannot, and not who is in or who is out of Eurozone; strongest countries will build the 1st tier and weaker ones the 2nd Tier and no fuss in choosing who will be the weaker link as we all know how much monies spent on Greece and Italy and no recovery is seen on the horizon!), there also should be division between those countries that use Euro and those that do not - this is so crucial I cannot emphasise enough.

On the 16th December, German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, made a step forward and called to speak to David Cameron, in attempt to revise the changes that will suit Britain and protect the safeguards. These possible amendments signify, that the Prime Minister made a right decision earlier in December and that he will not sign any treaty, which will be not in the interest of the country. Although, the new treaty has not been officially placed on the table, David Cameron will be present at the Summit, which commences on 27th January next year; so will be Nick Clegg.

Nick Clegg: his activity of "supporting" the PM as his Deputy is astonishing: at first he blamed David Cameron for exiting the meeting without approving the new treaty changes; then he did not have enough courage to attend the House of Lords and now he is eagerly looking forward to take part in Summit. The question is : on which side now : Eurosceptic, support of new treaty or as he should be as a Deputy of Prime Minister, supporting David Cameron?

The aftermath of what he said lately: he has totally supported the new treaty from the beginning, leaving Britain to dance under someone else flute for the rest of the months and not fight for own country- is so much disagrees that can create a huge confusion at the Summit to where actually Britain stands..

Regardless of anxiety by the EU leaders over decisions made earlier, Britain still will be present at all EU meeting and will have a right of voice; and furthermore it may well be that Britain will have a right to change the position, if agreements are met in full. (read the Economist article for interesting overturn of possible events)

Britain now is a strong position, and should be very careful not to create confusion between Prime Minister standing on one side and Deputy of Prime Minister waving from another at the Summit.
