French Prime Minister François Fillon was in London today urging Britain not to stand in the way of efforts to forge greater eurozone cooperation. David Cameron’s response, via the Guardian:

A strong and successful eurozone is in Britain’s interests. We want the countries of the eurozone to sort out the difficulties they have and we won’t stand in the way as we do that.

Indeed, we will be a helpful partner in making sure that happens.

But let me again be clear – that does not mean that Britain should be drawn into new mechanisms or new procedures or have to give up new powers.

That is absolutely not what we see as necessary as happening and throughout the European councils last year we made that point and secured that point on many, many occasions.
