So how would he explain the British decision, made at 4 am, by one Englishman, while the premiers of Hungary, Sweden and the Czech Republic decided to go home and consult the parliaments of their countries?

It had been my intention to write a piece on the Euro summit, but having read this by Sturdyblog (from whom I borrowed the illustration), I'm inclined to feel that he has done a far better job than I would have.
Questions are bound to arise, though, about where the Liberal Democrats stand on Cameron's decision to be more Eurosceptic than Thatcher, but I see that Scot goes Pop has that subject neatly and amusingly tied up here.
It only remains for me to ask then... was it necessary for him to explain his decision to his backbenchers over dinner at his country estate last night? And who paid for it?
