Angela Merkel pleads to David Cameron: Stay in the EU

The German chancellor said she wanted a “strong” Britain to stay in the EU, as she headed for talks with the Prime Minister over the EU budget.

Mrs Merkel arrived in London for dinner with Mr Cameron in Downing Street last night, after contradicting those who think Britain would be better off outside the EU.

“You can be very happy on an island, but being alone in this world doesn’t make you any happier,” she said.

An increasing number of Tory MPs, including ministers, are asking whether Britain should consider leaving the EU, a suggestion Mr Cameron has rejected.

Speaking to the European Parliament in Brussels before flying to London, Mrs Merkel evoked Britain’s role in the Second World War to argue that the UK must remain part of the EU. “I want to have a strong UK in the EU, let me make that absolutely clear,” she said.
