Germany would be prepared to accept that Britain will have to leave the European Union if David Cameron insists on restricting the number of immigrants from the bloc who can live and work in the UK.
Mr Cameron’s bid to curb levels of migration from the EU is taking Britain to a “point of no return”, according to Der Spiegel.
It’s obviously true that an end to the internal free movement of people will mean having to leave. And whatever I think of the free movement of people or not leaving would be a good idea. So go on Call Me Dave, insist upon it and then we can leave.
Because it doesn’t matter: we left anyway, which is the important thing.
