David Cameron's Europe plan is doomed - EU ministers
Nicholas Watt and Patrick Wintour"David Cameron is heading for a confrontation with Europe after some of Britain's closest EU allies yesterday rejected out of hand key demands outlined by the Conservative leader this week.
"Four more countries yesterday dismissed the Tories' new approach, in a direct rebuff to William Hague, who insisted that the party was not isolated after France's Europe minister accused the Conservatives of "castrating" Britain's position in the EU.
"Europe ministers from Poland, the Netherlands and the Irish Republic - historically among the friendliest to Britain in the EU - as well as Spain, said Cameron would not achieve his demand to repatriate social and employment laws to Britain. His plans would need the agreement of all 27 leaders of the EU because they would involve rewriting the union's treaties."
