Clegg Says U.K. Engaging Europe After Veto, Guardian Reports

Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg told the Guardian that Britain is already working with Europe to get “back into the mainstream of the debate” after Prime Minister David Cameron’s veto of a euro-rescue treaty.

The government is taking “very big steps” to re-engage with Europe after the veto at this month’s summit, and jabs against the U.K. yesterday by French Prime Minister Francois Fillon show Britain is caught in the cross-fire of France’s presidential election, Clegg told the newspaper. France and England always work through their differences, he said.

“I just think we all need to go away, have a bit of hiatus, a bit of time to have Christmas, to eat some mince pies or whatever the French equivalent is,” Clegg told the Guardian. “Everyone is a bit tired.”
