Germans accuse British PM of blackmailing the continent

Cameron’s plan at a glance:


  • Working migrants will not get tax credits and council houses for four years
  • Jobless migrants offered no support and kicked out after six months
  • Prime Minister insists his ideas are not ‘outlandish’ and need to be heard
  • Appeals to EU leaders who have lost thousands of workers to Britain
  • Warns action is needed on immigration to secure UK’s future in the EU
  • Threatens to block new countries joining the EU without movement curbs

New fund to be created to help key areas cope with influx of migrants



For reaction, European Commission official spokesman calls for a period of ‘calm’.
