PM chicken for dodging Brussels meeting


Published Feb 15, 2016

dave_cancel.pngUKIP Leader Nigel Farage has accused the Prime Minister of being a chicken for dodging a planned meeting with him in Brussels tomorrow. The PM was due to attend a meeting with Nigel Farage and other EU parliamentary group heads to discuss the "deal" that he had put forward for reforming Britain's relationship with Brussels, however, it has now been revealed that Cameron will instead hold selected talks only.

Nigel Farage said: "The Prime Minister is chicken. I received my official documentation this morning to say that I was one of several meeting the PM tomorrow morning and he has now run away scared.

"Frankly I'm not surprised. Not only is the deal pitiful but he would not want me exposing the fact that even if he wins the referendum, the European Parliament will veto it.

“UKIP won the European Elections in 2014. By refusing to meet me Mr. Cameron is insulting millions of British voters. He knows he’s losing.”

Earlier this month, No 10 announced that Mr Cameron would "meet with the chairmen of the political groups ahead of the February European Council, at the so called Conference of Presidents meeting on 16th February" and technical notes were sent round to Parliamentary Group Leaders last week confirming the details of the meeting.
