Britain betrayed by Cameron

David Cameron was this morning accused of relegating Britain to the second division of Europe.

Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies claimed that by wrecking agreement between EU countries in Brussels the Prime Minister had ensured that a two speed Europe would develop.

He said: “Far from keeping Britain strong, Cameron has ensured that we will lose our influence at the top table.  By seeking to protect bankers from regulation, he has betrayed Britain’s real interests and done nothing in practice to help the City of London.

“The fear now must be that we will increasingly lose the opportunity to affect decisions being taken that are bound to affect us.

“The consequence of the xenophobic attitudes towards our European neighbours that have been allowed to develop has been to leave Britain weak.  We have shot ourselves in the foot.”
