British Prime Minister David Cameron leaves at a EU Budget summit at the European Council building for a break in Brussels on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013. A European Union summit to decide EU spending for the next seven years entered a second day after all-night negotiations left a standoff over spending unresolved. The leaders of the 27 nations inched toward a compromise Friday that would leave their common budget with a real-term cut for the first time in the EU’s history.
LONDON - The British government on Monday intensified its campaign to stop Scotland leaving the United Kingdom, publishing a legal opinion suggesting it would forfeit its membership of international bodies such as the European Union if it chose independence.
