PUBLISHED: 01:53 GMT, 3 February 2016  The Mail admires David Cameron. He has been markedly successful in turning the economy around.

He kept Ed Miliband out of No 10 (with a little help from this paper), saving Britain from a catastrophe.

But on Europe, we have to say frankly his capacity for self-delusion is breathtaking.

Yesterday, seemingly gripped by the conviction that he is securing a triumph for Britain, Mr Cameron made the hair-raising observation that he would urge the UK to join the EU on these terms, even if we were not already a member.

Oh yes? Would we really want to join a sclerotic, corrupt bureaucracy whose leaders have no comprehension of the historic scale of the crises facing them?

Wouldn’t this be like buying a ticket for the Titanic after it struck the iceberg?

All over the continent, razor-wire fences are being erected to hold back the tide of migrants sucked in by naïve attempts to abolish borders.

In Germany, Angela Merkel is besieged by Right-wing groups after her open-doors policy led to mass sex attacks.

In Hungary and Poland, the far Right is on the march. Even oh-so-liberal Sweden is seeking to expel 80,000 migrants, as protests against the influx turn violent.

Meanwhile, the monumental failure of the one-size-fits-all euro worsens. Greece is again in meltdown, Italy’s banks are imploding and youth unemployment in Spain remains well above 50 per cent.

With Europe’s viability under mortal threat, never has the need for a radical shake-up of the EU’s statist, wasteful and corrupt institutions been more apparent. And the irony is that the Prime Minister, until recently, agreed with this analysis.

At the risk of embarrassing him, may we remind him that he promised at his party’s 2014 conference that the next Tory Government would cut immigration, repeal the Human Rights Act and repatriate powers from Brussels?

Indeed, he promised nothing less than a fundamental renegotiation of Britain’s relationship with Europe. How woefully that contrasts with the footling, pedantic and almost certainly ineffective reforms he now trumpets.

Take his pledge to stop EU migrants from claiming child benefit from British taxpayers for children who live abroad.

In place of a blanket ban, he’s agreed to a ludicrous system under which the payments will be made at the same rate as in the recipients’ home countries. This will mean 28 rates across the EU – promising a field-day for merchants of red tape and a nightmare for everyone else.

It’s the same with his manifesto promise to make migrants wait four years for benefits. Now the payments will be phased in – creating more bureaucracy and giving new migrants a strong incentive to stay.

As for his ‘red card’ that will let groups of 15 nations reject Brussels legislation, leave aside the difficulty of finding 14 allies. The veto is more likely to be used to block British interests than to protect them.

Of course, if the Prime Minister wishes to delude himself that these proposals change everything, that’s his business.

But the fact is they barely touch on the mighty issues at stake – sovereignty, democratic accountability and the proper limits of interference by foreign bureaucrats and judges.

Meanwhile, hardly anything in this deal will do one iota to stop mass immigration from inside or outside the EU.

Indeed the past few weeks of manufactured rows over frankly lilliputian issues have been nothing but a charade, while the deal will merely provoke more cynicism among reasonable citizens.

More pertinently, with the draft agreement now published, it is surely morally indefensible to insist that other ministers can’t attack it before it’s signed and sealed by our partners.

But then, is there any eurosceptic in this pusillanimous Cabinet with the guts to speak his mind and put principles and country before personal ambition?

WHILE WE MIGHT LAUGH AT THIS ARTICLE, ULTIMATELY IT JUST GOES PROVE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE THAT – It does not matter what the politicians think, SAY or DO, God has declared the End from the Beginning and the Bible (God’s Word) reveals that Britain will not be part of the EU when Christ Returns to Earth.

What we will continue to witnessed here is as Daniel said in Daniel 4:17“This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will…”

Just as the angels of God were at work ensuring that Britain had one of the strongest voter turn outs in years and voted for the conservatives to return to UK Government.
