Europe to take Britain to court over immigrant benefits....Time for Cameron to find his backbone

Brussels will object to Britain's application of an extra test that could have stopped eligible immigrants from EU countries getting benefits.

European officials believe thousands of EU nationals that have lived and worked in Britain could have been discriminated against and unfairly denied the right to welfare payments.

As a result, the Commission is taking Britain to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg in a landmark case.
