UK forced to pay more for EU membership

David Cameron will be forced to accept a sizeable increase in Britain’s contribution to European Union spending just days after calling for it to be frozen or even cut.

The Prime Minister heads to Brussels today for testing talks with other European heads of state over the EU budget amid calls from the European Parliament and the European Commission for a rise next year of 6 per cent

Mr Cameron denounced the proposed increases last week as “completely irresponsible and unacceptable” and demanded a “freeze or cut” in European spending next year.
