Sarkozy lashed out against Cameron saying “we are sick of you criticizing us and telling us what to do.”

David Cameron has insisted that Britain’s interests be safeguarded in the discussions, He argued saying all EU leaders should be present as the decisions that affect all in one way or another. “This must not be at the expense of Britain’s national interest… we must safeguard the interests of countries that want to stay outside the euro.”
