EUreka! Now even the EU wants Britain to leave 'as quickly as possible'!

NOW EVEN THE EU WANTS US TO LEAVE

European Parliament president Martin Schulz sparked angry clashes last night

By Macer Hall


SENIOR Eurocrats were openly speculating last night that Britain could soon quit the European Union.

Diplomatic sources admitted that a summit of European leaders scheduled for later this month may have to be scrapped because of David Cameron’s threat to veto an inflation-busting increase in the Brussels budget.

And as the bitter row deepened, the sources went further by suggesting the dispute could “quickly”
result in the UK’s exit from the EU.

One said: “We’re working to reach an agreement but everything indicates that it is impossible to overcome the British veto. Prime Minister Cameron has gone too far and will not come back.

“The possibility of Britain’s exit from the EU, as quickly as possible, is no longer considered taboo.”

Tory MPs reacted with delight. Peter Bone said: “For the first time ever, a Brussels official seems to have spoken the truth. The PM is standing up for the British people in opposing this huge increase in our payments to the EU.

The PM is standing up for the British people in opposing this huge increase in our payments to the
EU.

“Clearly, our current relationship with the EU is coming to an end and there will have to be a new relationship. If this summit is cancelled, that will save a lot of travel expenses and they can all get on with running their own countries.”

Fellow Tory Douglas Cars­well said: “This is welcome news. Britain must leave the EU. Well done to the Daily Express for leading the way on this issue.”


Mr Cameron and the other 26 leaders were due to gather in Brussels on November 22 to hammer out the EU’s next seven-year budget.

European Commission chiefs want a 6.8 per cent a year rise. The Prime Minister is pressing for the increase to be pegged to inflation and will try to forge an alliance with Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was said to be threatening to cancel the summit because of the impasse but officials denied the reports.

She met Mr Cameron at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday to try to find a solution but the pair were unable to resolve their differences.


The meeting came after the Government was defeated in the Commons last week when MPs, including 53 Tory rebels, voted to demand a cut in the EU budget.

Some officials now believe cancelling the summit may be the only way to avoid the embarrassment of Mr Cameron blocking a deal.

The row intensified last night as European Parliament president Martin Schulz, a German socialist, renewed his demand for £7billion from member states to fill a black hole in this year’s EU budget.


The move, which would mean an extra payment of nearly £1billion from UK taxpayers, sparked angry clashes last night.

After eight hours of wrangling a string of Euro MPs walked out in protest at Britain’s refusal to back the payment. EU Finance Commissioner Janusz Lewandowski warned that, unlike with the seven-year budget, Britain had no veto and could be outvoted on the issue.

Britain already pays around £12billion a year to the EU, equivalent to nearly £500 for every household.

Downing Street said talks between European leaders were continuing and a decision on the summit was expected over the weekend.

Indeed, 'we can run our own country', as the saying goes.

P.S. Sorry about the technical hitches which interfered with my OP.

Send ships. Send aeroplanes. I don't care if our 'illustrious' politicians travel first class (I'll chip in a shilling towards the fare) just as long as we leave the EU and close the door firmly behind us. It doesn't work. Why keep trying to mend something that doesn't work?

I remember a joke told to me that makes sense of the EU.

A man is lying awake in bed tossing and turning. His wife asks him why he can't sleep. He tells her it is because he owes the man across the road a lot of money and he's piling on the interest everyday. His wife goes to the bedroom window to look at the window of the man in the house opposite. His house is in darkness and all appears calm. She opens her bedroom window and loudly shouts his name. He comes to his window. She shouts 'you say my husband owes you a lot of money'. He acknowledges and asks when he will be paid. She says with conviction 'he can't pay you and he won't pay you. He paid you what he owed you and you want more'.

She returns to bed and tells her husband to go to sleep because the man opposite has turned on his bedroom light and is lying awake worrying.

just my opinion.

For the past 20 years or so I've been all for the U.K. leaving the E.U and I still think it may be a good thing for both parties.

Hallo Châtelaine, For many years I've likened the E.U. to an ever-growing commune, now with 27 families - with all the problems that running such a commune entails.

I sometimes say to people: 'Do you prefer living in your own house and garden, or would you prefer to live in a commune?'

They are shocked, and reply: 'In my own house, of course!'.

These same people then say: 'But if we left the European Unuon, we'd be all alone, marginalised, isolated etc. etc. ad nauseam".

Just like we like to run our own lives and homes, so the British people can run their own country.

It doesn't stop us trading or co-operating with others...

Moa, Could you do us all in the UK a little favour? Please drop a line to our Prime Minister, Mr David Cameron, gently pointing that out. Maybe you could also inform him how much your country is in surplus (last I heard it was about £85 billion), I believe you have managed your North Sea resources (oil, fish, gas) very well and don't have to share all the profits shoring up basket-case economies like Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

His address, by the way, is 10 Downing Street. Or, to coin a phrase (an 'in' joke, I'm afraid), just address it: "David Cameron, Prime Minister, London. It'll get there"
