David Cameron had some harsh words for EU officials during his speech at the Conservative Party conference.
The British Prime Minister branded EU legislation as “pointless” as he lamented that the potential of the European market was being eroded by time-wasting measures.
“The EU is the biggest single market in the world – but it’s not working properly,” he said.
“Almost every day, I see pointless new regulation coming our way. A couple of weeks ago I was up in the flat, going through some work before the start of the day and I saw this EU directive. Do you know what it was about? Whether people with diabetes should be allowed to drive. What’s that got to do with the single market?”
Cameron reiterated; that half the world’s governments are in a debt crisis and, with the Eurozone staring at the abyss, he wouldn’t be joining the Euro.
He also said that the only way to get the economy to recover was to curtail government spending, before announcing he would spend up to £14,000 ($21,610) on some of the unemployed to get them back working.
Overall, a lot of problems reaffirmed, very few solutions outlined.
