So Mr Cameron believes he has got a good deal from the EU on the reforms he wanted.

They gave him what they wanted to. The people may stand for his bully boy tactics in the UK, but he won’t get away with it elsewhere. He went to a banquet and was fed crumbs. It will not impress those people voting for out of the EU. He is the same as George Osborne who believes he got a good deal from Google, £130 million in back taxes – this coming from a chancellor who sold Royal Mail for one billion pounds, less than it was worth. Google made billions in the UK and over a ten-year period it works out they paid three per cent tax on those billions. Scandalous. Now Iain Duncan Smith has lost a case on the bedroom tax at the Court of Appeal. It is obvious the bedroom tax should be scrapped. It is totally unfair and he should resign. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt apologised to the family of one-year-old William Mead who died of sepsis because he was let down by out-of-hours GPs’ care and the 111 helpline. Why did Mr Hunt replace the NHS Direct, who had medically trained nurses, with 111 non-qualified call handlers who get a mere two weeks training? The Tories should be called the “Cut and Shut” party.
