The Guardian view on the European Union budget demand: messing with the national interest Either David Cameron sought this battle or he was asleep on the job. It is hard to say which is worse
There are two sensible things to say about the UK economy’s third-quarter growth rate of 0.7%, announced today . The first is that it shows the economy is continuing to grow at a solid level. The second is that the rate of growth is down compared with the revised 0.9% in the second quarter. This slowing ought to bring a cautionary note to the current smugness of the domestic economic debate. But it is unlikely to do so.

Juncker tells Cameron: you can’t destroy EU migration rules
Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:33
Jean-Claude Juncker, the incoming president of the European commission, has rejected out of hand any attempt by David Cameron to “destroy” the fundamental rules of the EU on free movement of people.
In an echo of the remarks by the outgoing president José Manuel Barroso, who warned that the prime minister is making a “historic mistake” on the EU, Juncker said on Wednesday that he would not compromise in an “irresponsible way” on rights that date back to foundation of the EEC.
David Cameron: Britain will not pay extra £1.7bn for EU budget
Friday, 24 October 2014 23:55
David Cameron has said Britain will refuse to pay a “completely unacceptable” bill of £1.7billion to the European Union.
The Prime Minister hit out at the bill and spoke of his anger at the “appalling” way Britain has been treated by the European Commission.
He said that “it certainly doesn’t help” the chances of Britain remaining in the EU after an in-out referendum due to be held in 2017.

Former Labour minister Frank Field hits out at Ed Miliband for being soft on immigration
Thursday, 23 October 2014 06:25
A senior Labour MP has warned that the party is losing its working class supporters to Ukip because it is run by an out-of-touch “elite” that does not understand them.
Frank Field, the former Welfare Reform Minister, accused Ed Miliband of making the same mistake as Tony Blair by taking the party’s traditional voters for granted on the grounds that they had “nowhere else to go.” He said many of the 5m supporters Labour has lost since 1997 have now moved from being non-voting and “politically homeless” to backing Ukip.
It’s not just Ukip that’s changing Cameron’s mind about immigration
Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:39
It is easy to mock David Cameron on immigration. Under pressure from the public and from Ukip, he’s having to hot-foot it to a tougher position on the free movement of labour within the European Union. Ideas dismissed as unworkable only a few months ago are now on the table. But it’s not all political positioning. There really is a serious case for Britain to be treated differently from eurozone countries when it comes to freedom of movement.
EU agrees with UK to cut six regulations, but brings in 1,000
Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:11
The European Union has dealt a blow to the UK by adopting just six of the Government's proposals for cutting red tape in the past year, while introducing more than 1,000 new financial regulations, research has revealed.
A year after the Government's Business Taskforce, led by some of Britain's best-known chief executives, put forward 30 ways the EU could make it easier for UK companies to operate, only a handful have been implemented.

MICHAEL CRICK: JUDGES COULD OVERTURN TORY VICTORY IN ROCHESTER BY-ELECTION
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 07:10
Last week, Breitbart London revealed that the Conservative Party could run into huge problems over spending in the upcoming Rochester and Strood by-election. The party has already spent over £40,000 on an "open primary" selection process, sending each voter in the seat literature for the selection of their candidate.
Now, Channel 4 News's Michael Crick says that two lawyers have told him that the party's huge spending could cause them to be subject to a legal challenge if their candidate wins the election.
