Stephen Metcalfe MP speaks out against ‘ridiculous’ European Union charges

Local MP Stephen Metcalfe has today spoken out against the recent €2bn bill levied against the United Kingdom by the EU, slamming it as ‘ridiculous’.

Stephen Metcalfe’s comments follow a recent demand from the European Union, that Britain increases its financial contribution by a December 1 deadline.

Stephen Metcalfe said: “I am glad to see the Prime Minister echoing the sentiments of the British people on these ridiculous European Union charges.”

“We must continue to speak out against this kind of appalling behaviour on the EU’s part and I will be calling on the Government to refuse to pay this absurd bill.”

“Clearly with the promise of a referendum, the Conservatives are the only party committed to bringing our relationship with the European Union under new terms, standing up for British interests, and giving real choice to the British people.”
