‘We won’t pay any more!’ Austrian minister RAGES at EU as Brexit prompts budget DILEMMA

As member states continue to argue about how to plug the gap left by Britain’s impending exit from the EU, Austria's Chancellery Minister Gernot Blümel said the bloc must improve productivity and streamline its goals, rather than simply demand more money from the EU27.

Mr Blümel, who is responsible for EU agendas for the upcoming budget, does not want Austria to have to spend more to cover the finical gap left by Britain’s exit.

He said: "The EU will have to concentrate on fewer tasks, but will have to carry them out more efficiently, for example in terms of security and external border management.
