UKIP leader Nigel Farage says David Cameron has been humiliated in Brussels after fighting the wrong battle and losing.
"We've had prime ministers before - one thinks of Margaret Thatcher, even John Major at Maastricht - who went to the council of Europe with a strong negotiating position and came back with something they could hold up before the British public and say, look, I won this concession. Mr Cameron has dug himself deeper and deeper into this pit in fighting against Jean-Claude Juncker and, frankly, left himself humiliated, vastly outnumbered. Britain's influence in Brussels is weaker than today than at any point in the last forty years. Britain has lost its negotiating hand and its done it on the wrong battle."
