The last EU summit of the year ended early on Thursday evening. Charles Grant talks to BBC Radio 4 on Britain's relationship with the EU.
"It seems the point of the fund is to help the eurozone, and the East Europeans are worried about that, especially the Czech government," said John Springford of the CER.
Fiona Foster reports on what impact the EU has had on the UK, and reveals the results of one of the largest ever opinion polls on the future of Britain in Europe. She speaks to John Springford on the question of a British exit from the EU.
"You can argue that the euro zone is still in a pretty terrible economic state, but the external world has become very challenging", said Ian Bond of the CER.
"Mario Draghi’s penchant for seeking German approval has been his biggest mistake as head of the ECB," said Christian Odendahl, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform in London.
