TUC Congress 2015: Varoufakis warns PM he will fail in talks with EU

Monday 14th September 2015

DAVID CAMERON will walk away from EU negotiations “without anything very different,” former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis told a fringe meeting at TUC Congress yesterday.

“But you’re faced with … an infinite repetition of the phrase: ‘These are the rules.’

David Cameron’s going to have a hard time negotiating anything very different. The EU has very little capacity for a rational engagement with the facts.”
