Cameron's EU pledge "derisory" say UKIP
David Cameron's pledge to veto any 'outrageous' increases in the EU budget if they were 'not in the national interest' was described as "derisory" by UKIP.
Leader Nigel Farage MEP said the Prime Minister's "annual grandstanding on the EU budget has continued for 2012."
Mr Cameron has said he will veto any increase 'which wasn't in the British interest' in the EU budget, the same pledge as he made in 2011 which saw the budget increase by 2.9%.
Mr Cameron said he "succeeded spectacularly" as the proposed budget rise was 5.9% even though the tax payer was landed with additional millions to be sent to Brussels.
"It's just another empty gesture designed to pacify the voters who feel utterly let down by the endless broken promises the Prime Minister has made over Brussels" said Mr Farage.
"The last time he cried 'success' we were still landed with an increase of 2.9%: hardly a resounding victory especially when our contributions are over £50 million a day.
"And why should the EU give such concerns to Cameron when he had made plain that he won't give the British people a referendum on our future membership and will fight tooth and nail to keep us trapped inside this union?
"He has already told them he won't play his trump card."
