During two hours of bitter exchanges during a meeting of all 27 EU leaders before a crisis summit of the eurozone’s 17 members on Wednesday, [French] President [Nicolas] Sarkozy fought hard to get [British Prime Minister David Cameron] barred from talks that would finalise a 100billion euros cash injection into banks.
”We’re sick of you criticising us and telling us what to do. You say you hate the euro, you didn’t want to join and now you want to interfere in our meetings,” the French leader told Mr Cameron, according to diplomats.
Seriously. Now is not a good time.
PS: What’s that? I’m being condescending? Well, guess what: 712 million a year to NATO buys me a little condescension, I think. Besides, England and France should know better.
