Here’s more evidence that we are being told a pack of lies about Cameron’s EU membership “renegotiation”.
Only a couple of days ago, we were told that these talks were on track, due to very positive talks between Cameron and Angela Merkel. Now “Whitehall fears the chances of a deal… in mid-February are slipping”. What a difference a day makes – or were we fed a lot of bunkum?
And why should we believe this story, when the others seem to be a lot of smoke in the wind?
David Cameron has scrapped a visit to Denmark and Sweden as he tries to inject fresh momentum into his EU negotiations with unscheduled talks with the European commission president Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels.
As Whitehall fears the chances of a deal at the European council in mid-February are slipping, the prime minister will on Friday seek to persuade Juncker to allay the concerns of some of the smaller EU member states.
Downing Street is hoping that the renewed momentum will ensure that Donald Tusk, the European council president, is able to send out his latest proposals on the UK’s EU reform package next week to all EU leaders.
