The Prime Minister met with the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, in Brussels. He revealed that the negotiations over a new deal for the UK in the EU were going Britain’s way, but not far and fast enough. He stated that “there’s no deal done but we have made progress. There’s still a long way to go.” It was highlighted that the negotiations are focused on new proposals from Brussels aimed at bridging the gap between the two sides as Cameron asks for ability to stop new EU migrants to Britain from claiming in-work benefits for four years. Even though the rest of Europe has rejected the idea as illegal and discriminatory, Brussels has proposed that Cameron could obtain several of his demands in an “emergency”.
