Sideshow Dave; Letters..
ONE hopes David Cameron is a fan of Brussel sprouts, as he is in for extra helpings at the European Council summit this week.
Firstly, proposals to limit EU migrants through imposing a cap were rejected following objections, primarily from Chancellor Merkel. Now proposals to limit in-work benefits to those EU migrants who have been in the UK for four years look set to go to the wall.
This was always a sideshow, as those coming from the EU to the UK don't come for benefits but to work. Any attempt to curb migrants through restricting benefits will have little impact.
Talk of "strong fundamental reform" of our relationship with the EU has become something of a damp squib.
