Nice balanced stuff from the European Parliament

We get it, the European Parliament, read the European institutions think that Britain needs to pay them more money.

And of course this is what Martin Schulz, the German socialist president of the European Parliament thinks,

'If Cameron is prepared to give up the British rebate, then we can discuss the reduction of the EU budget'.

Thing is with Cameron's positive statement of his desire to walk naked into the negotiating room, he has signaled that he is happy to do so.

I expect that following Tony Blair's largesse, basically giving up the rebate in exchange for noises from the French that the CAP would be redesigned... Nothing happened of course... That Cameron will be happy to give up any remaining rebate/rebalance.

The EC and its back office will eat him for breakfast.
