British Prime Minister David Cameron said today that he plans to push very hard for a reworking of the European Union budget proposal during an intensive two-day summit in Brussels. It is believed Cameron will oppose a compromise plan for the EU budget because it includes significant cuts to Britain's multimillion pound rebate and because cuts elsewhere do not go far enough.

Mr Cameron, seen here entering the summit, answers press questions with a determined and confidant air of what he wants to achieve for the British tax payers.

Cameron is expected to raise the sensitive issue of the 2.9 billion pound annual rebate at the start of today's meeting and focus on the draft EU budget, which wants deep reductions to EU spending plans.
