In a blunt message to high-spenders in the EU, he [Scary Dave] said they could not carry on wasting money when other governments were battling to cut borrowing.Worked so well last time when he was demanding a freeze on the budget, didn't it. Mind you, France and Germany are saying it, too. We shall have to wait for the European Council conclusions to find out what was really said.
Apparently, the Dutch and the Finnish Prime Ministers also signed that letter to the Commission but the poorer countries, such as Poland are insisting that there should be no cuts. Actually, we are talking only about not raising the budget but quite clearly Prime Minister Tusk has learnt from the British trade unions and other protesters.
