(satire – possibly)
David Cameron has scrapped plans to deliver a long-awaited speech on Britain’s future in the European Union because of the Algerian hostage crisis and has decided to postpone it until 2018 instead.
Downing Street indicated that the Prime Minister would deliver his speech – in which he planned to warn that Britain could “drift towards the exit” unless powers are handed back from the EU – in the summer of 2018 when hopefully everyone will have forgotten he ever promised he was going to make it and he wouldn’t still be Prime Minister any more in any case.
In the speech, Cameron had been set to announce a timetable to renegotiate with his fellow European leaders a timetable for a possible referendum on a timetable for the renegotiation of Britain’s membership of the EU – a timetable for which the Prime Minister has yet to negotiate.
