UK, Europe on collision course over €2.1bn bill

That UK weasel David Cameron is trying to slither his way out paying 2.7 Billion USD surcharge by December.


Here’s the kicker: It’s to his buddies - allies!


Even Germany’s Merkel has sided w/ Brussels that Cameron needs to pay up.

Here’s what Merkel said:



“This did not come out of the blue. I understand that it’s difficult to come up with €2 billion, David, but this should have been expected,” said Merkel.


This was an awesome burn against that cheapskate Cameron:



“If you have higher GDP growth than forecast, that also means logically that you have a higher contribution to the community’s budget,” he said.


Well this sounds familiar, especially coming on the heels of what Putin said:



“You want to play the system so it suits only you,” said Hollande, who himself won’t have to find any money because France received a €790 million rebate.


So what does Cameron do?


“A diner unconvinced by the proposed EU menu, David Cameron refuses to pay the bill,” wrote Europe 1 on its website.


EU is cracking. . . Putin is Winning.

Typical political sabre-rattling.

France needs to tighten it`s budget badly, so the countries who have to pay will demand France to do so, France will say it had no other choice and mission accomplished.

Yup.


You may be right! All that I know is that EU is collapsing majorly. And Nato is on the ropes too.

This is just another nail in the coffin by that slithering cheapskate Cameron weaseling his way out of now paying his dues. . .

EU is not collapsing, but it`s getting hurt badly by the sanctions.

The whole Ukraine thing has been a fiasco for Ukraine, EU and Russia...no win has been gained by anyone as typical with the schemes of Washington lately.

Ok, I can meet you half way & agree EU just screwed themselves over by tagging along w/ the U.S. in sanctions over Russia.


I called it a long time ago, that EU would suffer while U.S. goes almost unscathed.

Thats the U.S. formula/M.O.

I hate to be that guy, but does this give any credence to the thread that was recently shut down about some UK'ers not being able to withdraw cash due to a system update? Sorry for butting my tinfoil hat in but I want to be among the first getting my family to the hills. I'm not on the calling list.

No, I understand your concerns & your nervousness.


IMO, IF Iran & Saudi get drawn into this NEW M.E. conflict. . . Then you have your indicator.

Until then, keep your family laughing & happy. Thats the best cure. . .



Hope this helps

No problems my man.


No worries, Ebola seems pretty contained at the moment. But as always keep a watchful eye on it & adapt. ATS is the BEST place for news updates & discussions!

Soficrow in the other topics has it on lock. . .

The only thing Cameron has done right. Why the hell should the British pay this money when we don't even want to be in the EU. May I ask what country the OP is from and if from the EU, is your country getting a rebate?

I know that not every British citizen wants to leave the EU but I do believe that when we have a referendum we are leaving. Good riddance.

What is another £ 1.7 billion to the U.K when it is borrowing £ 10 $ 16 billion a month MORE than they planned
something tells me this is all distraction from another issue as the U.K government looses this kind of money and does not bat a eye lid .

They hand out 10s of billions to other countries and we do not hear a thing about it ----- tax a bank mr cameron

Britain already pays a freaking £55 million a day. For what? A bunch of bureaucrats in a office in Brussels making stupid laws and regulations we dont want or need!

We dont see value for the £55 million we do spend so why should we pay more?

I say good on Cameron for having some balls for once. The UK people dont want to pay any more and WE are his bosses not the EU.

If you join a club you play buy the rules. Some years you win some years you lose. This year it was the buoyant sexand drug industries which boosted the economy, which is why you have the £1.7bn surcharge.

If Cameron did not know about this bill a while ago he is either asleep or not got a handle on the job or lying of course.

Drugs and sex are big business in the UK. LOL You got to pay your taxes!!

Or what?

EU pretty toothless. They can sanction us as our economy's to valuable. They cant take military action.....All they can do is kick us out the political part of the EU and that would make us extremely happy!

The British should pay nothing. The only referendum the public in Britain agreed to in the 1970s was the common market. The UK public have never had a say on anything else unlike our counterparts in Europe.

This is why UKIP is so popular in the UK as it's the only party promising to leave the EU. Our ancestors who fought in the two world wars would be turning in their graves if they knew we just handed over our sovereign powers to an unelected "President" of the EU.

I for one will be celebrating when we leave the gravy train, as will many other UK citizens. Just love the way folk say the UK would be nothing without the EU, whatever, we have a commonwealth and can trade with the World which is something we cannot do at the moment.

As much as I cannot stand David Cameron, I hope he tells them to stick their bill where the sun don't shine!
