‘Germany will back Britain in EU deal’ says influential MEP

He added that the prospect of an isolated Germany representing the “haves”, and the rest of Europe the “have nots” would be key.

The “new battle in Europe” would be between nations like France and Italy which saw Britain’s exit as a chance to “spend, spend, spend” their way out of economic strife, leaving Germany to pick up the tab.

Some of the biggest criticisms this week have been from newer Eastern European members. Ryszard Czarnecki MEP, a former Polish Minster for European integration, said: “From our point of view it was massive mistake not to offer more to David Cameron in February.”
