A moral victory - but defeat is still more likely than not

The quote of the day has to be from Peter Oborne (H/T Guido and the gang ):

    “Very rarely in political history has any faction or movement enjoyed such a complete and crushing victory as the Conservative Eurosceptics. The field is theirs. They were not merely right about the single currency, the greatest economic issue of our age — they were right for the right reasons.”

The problem is that projects like the Euro and the EU have more in common with a Count Dracula tale than a court room drama. They are the undead.

You can win the moral argument, and a few months later those who lost will declare they won ( see Nick Clegg' assertion no one could have foreseen the Euro criss as a classic example ).

The Euro's not dead until its notes are being collected at banks and shoved into furnaces. And the EU won't die until we stop paying the BrusselGeld and shameless traitors like the LibDems stop trying to continually betray their country and sell it into slavery ( and yes there are plenty of similar people in Labour and the Conservative party's).

I wish it was really all over - but it isn't, not by a long shot.

This is just the beginning. You'll notice the gold price has been static as the markets fall and Greece's inevitable default comes very close.

Today is already priced in - the battle of tomorrow has yet to be entertained.

Absolutely correct. In an ethical political universe, the people who predicted (correctly) what would happen, would be feted, and put in positions of power, as their predictions were proved to be right, and they therefore obviously have a greater knowledge/intelligence/judgement than the people who argued otherwise. Those who were wrong would be shunned and drummed out of public life as people whose judgement cannot be trusted.

Alas, we know how it is in reality...............pretty much the exact opposite.
