UK Prime Minister Cameron: EU Living ‘In A Parallel Universe’

British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday had tough words for much of the European Union after talks ended without a new seven-year budget. The impasse stems from disagreement over deep spending cuts, something Cameron and other leaders have advocated.

“Brussels continues to exist as if in a parallel universe,” Cameron said during a news conference, a reference to the EU’s central headquarters. Cameron argued that the rejection of efforts to trim bureaucratic costs is “insulting to European taxpayers.”
