Unprecedented? Not Really Dave.


Foreign Secretary William Hague said today a 6 per cent rise in the EU budget for 2011 'will be blocked' after David Cameron won crucial backing in his fight to limit a spending increase.
But Tory grandees immediately accused the Prime Minister of a ‘Vichy-style’ surrender for agreeing any rise at all.
Mr Cameron faces a backlash from the Tory right after building a coalition of 11 countries in favour of a hike of no more than 2.9 per cent - despite earlier claiming he would push for the budget to be ‘cut or frozen’.
Lord Tebbit, the Eurosceptic former chairman of the party, told him that agreeing to such a rise - equivalent to an extra £430million from the UK - would be comparable to the humiliation of the French regime’s 1940 cave-in to the Nazis.
