David Cameron was accused of “appeasing” his deputy Nick Clegg by performing an about-turn on Britain’s veto against closer ties among eurozone countries.
The Prime Minister is facing a revolt among Tory MPs over the “circumventing” of his veto which blocked a new EU treaty to deepen further fiscal union among eurozone countries at a summit last month.
Right wing Tory MPs were due to meet in Westminster to plot how to make clear their unhappiness ahead of a statement by Mr Cameron in the Commons tomorrow.
The news came amid fears on international markets about Portugal’s economy after its cost of borrowing road to record levels.
