Cameron defends EU veto in parliament

According to DW, British Prime Minister David Cameron returned from Brussels last week lauded as a hero by many of his party representatives but facing howls of derision from the opposition Labour Party, and even from coalition members, the Liberal Democrats.

In the House of Commons on Monday, the Conservative prime minister put up a forthright defense of his position taken at the two-day EU crisis summit, insisting he vetoed European Union treaty changes because he did not receive the safeguards he required for British interests.

Cameron said he had negotiated in Brussels in "good faith" and that his demands were "modest, reasonable and relevant."

Opposition Labour leader Ed Miliband, however, accused Cameron of actually harming the national interest by isolating Britain in the European Union, rather than safeguarding it as he set out to do.
