Prime Minister David Cameron has dismissed the European Union demand to pay extra bill on Friday while insisting that the U.K. will not pay £1.7bn by December.

Mr Cameron has labelled the surcharge “unacceptable” and said in a news conference in Brussels: “This is completely unacceptable.

“It is an unacceptable way for this organisation to work to suddenly present a bill like this for such a vast sum of money, with so little time to pay it and it’s an unacceptable way to treat one of the biggest contributors to the European Union.

“Of course in an organisation like this, if your economy grows a little faster or … slower, there are adjustments. Sometimes you pay a little bit more, sometimes you play a little bit less.

“I’m not paying that bill on the 1st of December and if people think I am, they’ve got another thing coming. It is not going to happen.

“As an important contributor to this organisation, we are not suddenly going to get out our chequebook and write a cheque for 2bn euros. It is not happening.”

Britain’s bill – the increase of almost one fifth to its annual contribution of £8.6bn, is the biggest of those imposed on several EU nations as an outcome after a revision in the way in which the economic output of member states is measured. It now includes previously hidden elements such as drugs and prostitution, and the overall performance of the economy.

While France will be owed 1.0 billion euros by the EU while Germany – the bloc’s biggest economy – gets a rebate of 779 million euros.

The head of European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, has confirmed that EU finance ministers would meet to discuss the issue as per Mr Cameron’s demand.

U.K. Prime Minister has revealed that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Dutch premier Mark Rutte and the leaders of Greece, Malta and other countries hit by the bills had supported him.

  1. The World conspiracy is not a theory and the UK will push Europe over the precipice. With Jeb Bush, future US prescomment_IDent, we will see that many simultaneous rebellions stirred up in Arab Countries will benefit in the end only the State of Israel with the expansion of its territory while in Europe and in the US, the financial resources “like magic” will disappear through bailouts, tax cuts and elaborated emergency maneuvers which will be ruled only to appear beneficial for those Countries but instead appositely designed for their collapse (except for England that will push Europe over the precipice). The old economy will get to the last stop. The internet instead will have its plug pulled. Massive poverty will bring chaos and anarchy while the lack of effective governments will set the stage for one World Tyranny. It will be just from chaos that one voice will rise with the promise to fix all and everyone. As Humankind will be most vulnerable and confused, agents on payroll of the New World Order will take command in each Country by promising the “moon” or stealing that command with fixed elections. In the end, all of them will be dictators, one for each Country, at the same time servants of one “chosen people”. The only alternative is from the certainty of this clear Direction.
