Last Friday's announcement that the EU wants an extra £1.7 billion from the UK was presented in shock horror terms as if sudden demands for more money were new. In fact, the EU has done this many times already. In the last two years the EU seems to have lost control of its own expenditure and then presented its member states with a bill for these major cost overruns.

The Tory media likes to give the impression that Prime Minister Cameron will resist the EU's pressure for more money. In fact, he has conceded that, while the UK will not pay up on 1st December( as the Commission would like), it will pay up in due course as long as the figure is rounded down by a few hundred millions. This is pathetic and deceitful, but should not come as a surprise. Seasoned Cameron watchers can confirm that he has been pathetic and deceitful in his handling of EU issues since he became Tory leader in 2005.

The correct response would be to tell the EU that we refuse to pay. Cameron will not do that. Please remember this when the Tories trot out their mantra that only they will give you a referendum on our membership of the EU. We need to get out of the EU now.
Only UKIP will do this
