There has been an historic first call to cut the EU Budget, agreed upon by the EU member states ELECTED representatives.
David Cameron today secured a major victory as leaders agreed a deal to impose the first cut in the European Union's budget in its 56-year history.
Herman van Rompuy, the President of the European Council, said the agreement on spending for the rest of the decade had been worth waiting for,
declaring on Twitter: 'Deal done!' The budget payments limit from 2014-20 will be reduced by €34billion over the next seven years, from around
€942billion to around €908.4billion. Scroll down for video European Council President Herman Van Rompuy used Twitter to reveal that a deal had

French-led raid on the 1984 rebate secured by Margaret Thatcher while insisting that Brussels spending falls below less than one per cent of the
European economy for the first time in history. Crucially Britain is the only country to see its rebate survive unscathed. Every other nation which
receives a block refund from Brussels has suffered a cut, with Austria thought to be losing its rebate altogether. The Netherlands is giving up a
large chunk of its rebate while Denmark has secured a rebate for the first time, after threatening to veto the deal entirely. After almost 20 hours
of talks that went through the night, proposals were tabled for a deal that slashes EU expenditure.
This now has to be passed to the European Parliment, who are NOT ELECTED and voted upon and ratified. This is what they had to say on the issue.
Leader of the Parliament Martin Schulz has suggested a vote on the deal might be conducted using a secret ballot to maximise the chances of it being
rejected -- a proposal described as a 'shocking subversion of democracy' by a British source.
If this is what the EU Beurocracts claim is any kind of democracy, then they need removing with immidiate effect. If they hold a secret ballet like
has been suggested and vote down the budget cut then there needs to be a massive European Backlash with a vote of no confidence in the whole system.
You cannot have Elected heads of state, turning up to a meeting on the EU Budget, agreeing to have a cut, which is a tiny one compared to spending
cuts most nations are going through at the minute and then having it VETO'd by officials that nobody has ever voted into power and officials that
have NEVER had their accounts audited.
The EU Dictatorship at full swing. I don't understand why the USA doesn't want to bring democracy to the EU, like it does the other nations it deems
as having a dictator in charge?
