Cameron To Veto Continental Breakfast At EU Summit
Prime Minister David Cameron is understood to be ready to use the British veto tomorrow morning and demand a Full English Breakfast instead.
Eurosceptic Tory MPs have praised the PM for sticking up for British interests and a thoughtful editorial in the Daily Mail reminded readers that eating croissants and rolls with jam and coffee in a cereal bowl for breakfast prevented the French from standing up to Germany in both World Wars and the Franco-Prussian War.
The Breakfast Chef at the hotel where Mr Cameron and the British delegation are staying shrugged his shoulders at the news of the principled British Veto and said, "That's OK, we have a serve yourself buffet arrangement, anyway. They can have cereals and kippers as well if they wish. We make plenty of toast."
