It was apparent to anyone, who possessed a twitter of wit, that come hell or high water, David Cameron had every intention to keep Britain shackled to the policies of the European Union.

His handling of the migrant crisis, along his pitiful demands for asked for, where the very word of “asked”, should have read “demanded”.

As a British prime minister, he should have realised that it was he who held all the aces for change, not the European Union.

This was even confirmed by EU opponents during the talks, as the very concept of the European Union would have tumbled like a pack of cards, if Britain left.

Added to that, was the obvious insincerity, exposed on David Cameron’s face – such insincerity still apparent in his follow-up talks to the media.

From start to finish, the talks were nothing but a charade of honesty, to fool the people who were bluffed, or silly enough to believe he possessed an ounce of decency and integrity.

My personal view is that David Cameron has betrayed the British people, where the only part I can give him any credit is that he deserved an Oscar for the part he played, throughout the stages of mock negotiation.
