I Don't Have a Problem with Cameron-He Has a Problem with Other Prime Ministers; Juncker Tears into Him before Crunch EU Summit

Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg described the process as 'completely unjust'. 'The fact that some countries appear to be getting rebates covering periods when they were not even making any payments just increases the confusion and unfairness,' he said. …
