9 Specific Demands Dave Wanted From Brussels

Lobby hacks are currently locked in the Cabinet Office where they are being spun by the PM’s advisers on his draft EU deal. Cameron’s renegotiation will be best judged on his own demands. Here are nine of the specific requirements he wanted from Brussels…

In his immigration speech of November 2014, Dave wanted to require EU migrants to have a job offer before they come to the UK:

“we want EU jobseekers to have a job offer before they come here and to stop UK taxpayers having to support them if they don’t… EU migrants should have a job offer before they come here”

In his 2013 Bloomberg speech, he demanded Britain regain control from Brussels over specific areas of law:

“environment, social affairs and crime”

In 2007 he said he would specifically require control over employment law to be handed back to London:

“I do not believe it is appropriate for social and employment legislation to be dealt with at the European level.”

The Bloomberg speech demanded treaty change to withdraw from ever closer union:

“we would be much more comfortable if the Treaty specifically [allowed members states to withdraw from ever closer union] freeing those who want to go further, faster, to do so, without being held back by the others”

It called for new free trade deals:

“I want us to be at the forefront of transformative trade deals with the US, Japan and India as part of the drive towards global free trade.”

And a guarantee of exemptions from EU directives:

“I want us to be pushing to exempt Europe’s smallest entrepreneurial companies from more EU Directives.”

He specifically called for guaranteed cuts to EU waste:

“creating a leaner, less bureaucratic Union [cut the] huge number of expensive peripheral European institutions… controlling spending and shutting down programmes that haven’t worked”

He specifically called for relaxations of the working time directive:

“the working hours of British hospital doctors to be set in Brussels”

In 2009, Cameron demanded:

“We will want a complete opt-out from the Charter of Fundamental Rights.”

So, a lot more than restrictions on migrant benefits and a red card system to veto Brussels. Judge him by his own demands…
