Brexit gets edged out by Migration.
Thursday, December 17, 2015, the European Union met and the “United Kingdom”, more commonly known as the Brexit matter, was listed as one of the EU Summit’s agenda topics.
But further action was delayed on Britain and its proposed changes for the EU until February at least. That is the date of the next EU Council meeting the TV program, DW News, said.
According to DW News, Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron is seeking the following EU reforms:
- Less bureaucracy
- More competitiveness
- Strengthening of national parliaments
- No social benefits for EU migrants
Concessions are possible for the first three requests but “the last point is a deal breaker”, stated DW News. It added.
“The UK wants to deny social benefits to migrants from other countries until they’ve pay taxes for years in Great Britain.”
Other EU nations are said to still consider that completely unacceptable.
