Whether one is content with systems of qualified majority voting is more than anything else a question of attitude and commitment. If, as is the case in our industry, you have taken a leading role and are anxious to press home proposals that promote your future, then the last thing you want is for a few minor players - who have not contributed much to the discussions - to be able to foul things up at the last minute with a small collection of negative votes.
It is time for the Government to display the same confidence as British business, to be positive and to show a belief that, when necessary, we have the ability to muster support from our European partners on specific issues. Let us leave the mathematics to the faint-hearted.
