HW:

Something is never changed suits, the fable EU gravy train, those fancy cars, long lunches, chocolate and beer filled with Brussels lifestyle. All of it a permanent source of indignation and anger to Euro skeptics. In times of plenty when European economies were booming no one come back on EU budget, now in times of austerity,one might expect a different approach.

But in fact, David Cameron's last ditch of rearguard action is an attempt to enfore not cut, not freeze but just a lower increase in budget than it's likely to be approved.  

At the time when European countries including United Kingdom are taking tough decisions on their budgets and having to cut some  departments is completely wrong that European institution should be spending more money on themselves the way they proposed. 6% is not acceptable, I want to build alliances to work with its colleagues, put a stop to that, to see what we can do something better. and that's I'm gonna do today.

The European commission and the European parlianment want to see a rise in the EU budget of 6%. That would represent the increased British contribution of 900 million pounds. Well, they become as pretty much resigned to accepting any increase of 2.9%. But Even that, it's 500 million pounds more, not sort of thing is gonna make British government departments happy when they're facing a cut of 19% on average over the coming 4 years.

It did seem extraordinary that at that very moment. the Joe Josball is in his feet in house of commons. I'm not saying the most significant budget trade retrenchment since 1920s to do with deficit. that after that moment, MPs were recalling for this huge increase to pay for among other things, most of it for themselves, and high entertainment budgets for European commissions.

The problem for David Cameron is the budget isn't even the on former agenda for the summit, and other European leaders are intensely preoccupied by controversial plans to impose strict new fiscal rules on Euro zone. The rules have been drawn up, to ensure no other country should get into sort of trouble Greece has, provoking riots and internally and a bailout from its European neighbours.

This is an argument where Britain is on sidelines, wants it to stay  that away. but the wrangling is so intensed. It may be hard for British prime minister to draw the argument back to what he thinks are more important issues.

Something’s never changed since. The fabled EU gravy trade, those fancy cars, long lunches, chocolate and beer-filled Brussel’s life style. All of it, a permanent source of indignation and anger to Euro’s skeptics. In times of plenty when European economies were booming when no one cut back on the EU budget, but now in times of austerity, one might expect a different approach. But in fact, David Cameron’s last ditch rearguard action is an attempt to enforce not a cut, not a freeze, but just a lower increase in the budget than is likely to be approved.

At a time when European countries, including the United Kingdom, are taking tough decisions on their budgets and have to cut some departments, it’s completely wrong that European institutions should be spending more money on themselves in the way that they proposed. 6 percent is not acceptable. I want to build alliances, work with colleagues, put a stop to that, and see if we can do something better, and that’s what I gonna do today.

The European commission, and indeed, the European parliament want to see a rise in EU budget of 6 percent that represent an increased British contribution of 900 million pounds. Well David Cameron is just pretty much resigned to accept an increase of 2.9 percent, but even that it’s 500 million pounds more. Not the sort of thing that’s going to make the British government departments happy when they are facing a cut of 19 percent on average over the coming four years.

It did seem extraordinary that at the very moment the George Osborne was on his feet at the House of Commons announcing the most significant budget retrenchment since 1920s to deal with the deficit. But at that moment, MEPs were calling for these huge increases to pay for, among other things, more stuff for themselves at higher entertainment budgets for European commissioners.

The problem for David Cameron is that the budget isn’t even on the former agenda for the summit, and other European leaders are intensely preoccupied by controversial plans to impose strict new fiscal rules on the euro zone. The rules are being drawn up to ensure no other country should get into the sort of trouble Greece has, provoking riots internally and a bail-out from its European neighbors. This is an argument where Britain is on the sidelines and wants it to stay that way. But the wrangling is so intense that it may be hard for the British prime minister to draw the argument back to what he thinks are more important issues.

Something has never changed it seems. The fabled EU gravy train, those fancy cars, long lunches, chocolate and beer-filled Brussels'
lifestyle, all of it - a permanent source of indignation and anger to Euro skeptics.

In times of plenty when European economies were booming, no one cut back on the EU budget. Now, in times of austerity, one might expect/ a different approach. But in fact, David Cameron's last ditch - rearguard action - is an attempt to enforce not a cut, not a freeze, but just a lower increase in the budget than is likely to be approved.

"At a time when European countries, including the United Kingdom, are taking tough decisions on their budgets and having to cut some departments, it's completely wrong that European institutions should be spending more money on themselves in the way they proposed. Six percent is not acceptable, I want to build alliances, work with colleagues, put a stop to that and see if we can do something better. And that's what I'm going to do to today."

The European Commission and, indeed, the European Parliament want to see a rise in the EU budgets of six percent that would represent an increased British contribution of 900 million pounds. Well, David Cameron is pretty much resigned to accept an increase of 2.9 percent. But even that, it's 500 million pounds more - not the sort of thing/ that's going to make British government departments happy when they are facing a cut/ of 19 percent on average over the coming four years.

"It did seem extraordinary that, at the very moment, that George Osborne, was on its feet in the House of Commons, announcing the most significant budget retrenchment since the 1920s to deal with the deficit. But at that moment, MEPs were calling for these huge increases to pay for, among other things, more staff for themselves and higher entertainment budgets for European Commissioners."

The problem for David Cameron is that the budget isn't even on the formal agenda for the summit and / other European leaders are intensely preoccupied by controversial plans to impose strict new fiscal rules on the Euro zone.

The rules have been drawn up to insure no other country should get into the sort of trouble Greece has, provoking riots internally and a bailout from its European neighbors.  This is an argument where Britain is on the sidelines and wants it to stay that way, but the wrangling is so intense that it may be hard for the British Prime Minister to draw the argument back to what he thinks are more important these years.
