EU demands £680m to cover overspend

The EU is demanding another £680m from the UK taxpayer to cover £5.4bn of spending that they don't have the money for.

It's only been a couple of weeks since they landed a £1.7bn bill on George Osborne's desk and now they want more. At least they had a flimsy pretext for demanding the £1.7bn, they didn't just say "we've spent too much money, give us some more".
