The European Union is planning on instituting a 6% budget increase at the European summit meeting on Thursday in Brussels, but Britain is not happy about it and its prime minister plans to put a stop to it.
David Cameron intends to go so far as to link Germany’s demand for a new treaty to his own demand for either a budget freeze or even a cut, according to a report in The Guardian, where he was quoted as saying, "It is completely irresponsible and unacceptable." He told the Daily Mail, "We need an alliance to block increases. I think the French will also be keen on budget restraint and we should push this extremely hard. It should be a freeze or a cut."
