The phantom veto

  • David Cameron 2012 Tory Party conference speech – politics.co.uk, 10 Oct 2012
  • We’ll soon forget the David Cameron ‘veto’ that never was – The Daily Telegraph, 17 Dec 2011

In his 2012 Tory Party conference speech, David Cameron said:

“I said no – Britain comes first – and I vetoed that EU treaty.”

However, this was the veto that never was, the treaty still went ahead; even the Eurosceptic Daily Telegraph said it “may be the most misrepresented event in recent political history”.
