British Taxpayers Face £600m Bill as EU Defies Cameron's Calls for Austerity

The European Commission will today ignore pleas from the Prime Minister, Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to reduce expenditure in line with painful national cuts to public spending.

Instead of a freeze, or a cut, the EU will later today issue a request for an extra 4.9 per cent (£5.5 billion) in spending for 2012 to swell the Brussels budget to £117billion despite the austerity measures being imposed by member states domestically.'
