Cameron has made me ashamed to be British. How dare he defend the interests of the banking community over the needs of millions of workers throughout Europe. This policy will lead to the isolation of the UK (the only nation amongst 27 who will refuse to join the fiscal deal) and hinder the chances of a full settlement to the Eurozone crisis.
It is the most short term, selfish, and ultimately disastrous decision Cameron could have taken. It is further evidence, if any is needed, that the Tory party are simply out to protect those in the city who profit from the misery of others.
The people of Britain will be the poorer for the lack of a complete European deal. The workers of Greece, Ireland, Italy and Spain will continue to see their pensions squeezed and jobs axed. Britain is now a European swear word.
But several thousand people will benefit hugely from the curtailing the effect of a European wide Tobin Tax. Cameron's chums will be delighted.
Cameron has nailed his colours to the mast - he is in power simply to benefit the needs of the 1%, at the expense of the rest of us. Shame on him and this small minded government.
