UK still key partner in EU as Cameron rating is up.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has told the Bundestag that the U.K is still play a key role in the EU saying: "I believe it's (Britain) an important partner in the European Union. Great Britain has its own vital interest that the eurozone will overcome its own financial crisis".

Last week David Cameron vetoed a new EU treaty which would create a European fiscal union. More money goes through the City of London on a daily basis than any other city in the world. It is right that a British Prime Minister protects this from financial rape by the EU.

A YouGov survey today put Cameron's Conservatives in 41&, with the Labour Party opposition lagging on 39%. Some may expect a wider lead with such positive coverage for this Prime Minister this past week. We will wait for more polls.
