It looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel for the UK and it being abused by immigration. France, Denmark, Germany and Sweden are all influential EU countries that back the propositions for EU reform. The idea is that these might well be proposed as EU wide instead of specific to the UK, which gives more chance of these reforms being accepted.

Detailed talks have begun on Britain's plan to reform Europe, before Mr Cameron stages an in-out referendum by the end of 2017.

At a summit in Brussels last week, the Prime Minister set out his demands on 'sovereignty, fairness, immigration and competitiveness'.

His plan to curb immigration between EU countries includes 'tackling the welfare incentives that attract so many people from across the EU to seek work in Britain'.

However, it seems the call for limits on what migrants can claim in other countries has substantial support elsewhere in the EU.

It suggests Mr Cameron could build support from key players in the EU if he recasts his plan as beneficial for all countries, and not just special demands for Britain.

A key proposal made by Mr Cameron is to introduce a four-year waiting period before EU migrants coming into a country can claim in-work benefits such as tax credits or social housing.

The idea is supported by 82 per cent of people in Britain, but according to a new YouGov Eurotracker survey is also supported by 62 per cent of people in France and 47 per cent in Germany.

This looks interesting so star and flag but it's just too hot to think about this kind of thing right now.

I will pop back later when I can breathe properly and think straight.

Good post.

Staying in Europe is the plan so I guess for some it might be a 'catch' , IMO it's a good thing, though the EU is looking tetchy ATM thanks to the impending potential GREXIT. I guess a few hours to see the response to Greece's new proposal.

Multiculturalism not working out as intended?

A bit too much diversity for the parent culture?

The article is about EU reform though the UK is probably too lapse about allowing certain aspects of multiculturalism.

It isn't any wonder that the UK and France are the most opposed seeing as we have experienced the worst of it, France, often just because it is used as a means of entering the UK for it's free things.
