David Cameron has vowed to get "tough" with Europe, as he threatened to veto the EU budget unless it sacks staff and cuts the pay of 4,000 officials on six-figure salaries.
The Prime Minister said he is proud of his "pretty outspoken" reputation among European leaders and stands ready to block any new spending plans that fail to tackle Brussels waste.
Speaking after a two-day summit, Mr. Cameron directly challenged the EU to take "more rigorous" action to cut costs or face another veto from the UK.

Sad when they think they need to tell us what sack means.
LOL. “Cast Iron Dave” is going to get tough with the EU.
Sorry; that was me. I’ll know better next time.
Sorry, I thought the paper did it. Have a great weekend.
Bold move by Cameron...but wonder if he will back down once the Free Trade Globalists who support and run the EU....start making threats to marginalize the Brits?
Better yet...Cameron should pull the UK out of the EU.
We need to do this here with ALL federal employees
Yep. All we have to do is fire every member of the House & Senate : )
