I'm not sure anyone would see the "deal" as hugely significant. Some will see it as "something" others as "nothing".Slider wrote:
What does interest me is how well the REMAIN group persuade people that the EU summit changes are significant and meaningful. Their problem is that it's an outright lie. Cameron and Osborne first spoke about the referendum being in their manifesto on the basis of bringing about a fundamental change to EU treaties. They (or the media) spoke about an EU-wide Big Bang. I knew they were never going to get anything like that. They avoided specifics, but people were talking about restricting EU immigration. That's a non-starter - if you meddle with free movement then the whole idea of the EU will fall. I doubt any one country would have backed him. He has managed to turn the question of immigration to one of benefit tourism, but that's absurd because the sums involved are negligible.
As with the interest in which Minister is going which way it's all politics, posturing, stage management.
I dont know how influential it is - basically we'll be hearing from politicians (biased), the media (mostly biased) and business (biased but in a more transparent way as their business interest is self interest)
