Compare and contrast the two very different reports on the same subject, MEPS reject the cuts negotiated recently in the EU budget, one from the Telegraph,
MEPs reject EU spending cuts and demand extra £1.7bn from British taxpayers
MEPs have rejected cuts to European Union budgets agreed at an all-night summit last month and have demanded that national governments pay an extra £14 billion in spending for this year.
MEPs want renegotiation of EU budget deal
Euro MPs adopted a resolution saying they would only accept the deal on certain conditions. They want governments to settle outstanding budget bills, to avoid the risk of a shortfall.
The MEPs also want a flexible 2014-2020 budget, so that money not spent in one area can be used in another if needed.
The BBC’s version ‘understands’ the MEP’s point of view and suggests it is a reasonable and fair way forward.
The Telegraph’s version is more open and shows that the MEPs are intent on imposing the rise in budget of near 12% that they originally wanted….a group of MEPs feathering their own nest and trying to build the power base of the undemocratic EU which wants to impose yet more taxes, increase the budget and limit further accountability of itself.
