Brussels' billion euro poker

Another EU scrap - this time it's about the EU budget. We look at European press reaction and at the British editorial take on Cameron's battle to keep the UK rebate. Meanwhile, Mohammed Morsi is being described as Egypt’s new Pharaoh after he boosted his presidential powers. We look at comment in the Egyptian media. That's the focus for this look at the world press this Friday 23rd November, 2012.

Suddeutsche Zeitung leads: Merkel expects failure of Brussels’ billion euro poker’.

The European Voice argues ridding the Brussels bureaucracy of its bad habits by streamlining procedures ‘might improve the EU’s business’.


The UK's Daily Telegraph has a cartoon showing British PM David Cameron waving his papers frantically in the air clinging to a part of the table specially prepared for him on the other side of the conference room window.

The Guardian, also in the UK, is asking its readers: 'Is Britain’s EU rebate outdated?'

The International Herald Tribune cartoon this Friday shows Mohammed Morsi in a position of power, punching his weight alongside Barack Obama.

An editorial in the Egyptian Independent argues Morsi has moved to boost his presidential powers now, knowing that Washington is unlikely to criticise after he emerged as the guarantor of the Israel-Gaza truce.
