Ed Miliband has told off David Cameron "for not seeking a place at next week's crucial eurozone summit".  Ed, the reason why Cameron isn't going is that it's none of our business.  The UK isn't in the eurozone, thanks in part to the Gordon Brown's "five tests", carefully crafted to allow Brown to keep us out of the Euro without embarrassing Tony Blair.

I suppose the eurozone countries would be delighted to have us along if we offer to chip in a few billion for the latest "defence fund".  Ed?

But it's the weekend.  If you want to think about financial obligations, you could do worse than read this novella, which may be the source of the acronym I've used for the title of this post.  You might even buy the book.
