EU leaders have reached an agreement on the budget for 2014-20 after lengthy talks in Brussels.

European Council President Herman Van Rompuy announced the deal and said in a statement it was "worth working for".

The new budget ceiling amounts to 960bn euros (£812bn; $1.3tn). It is the first time the EU's multi-annual budget has been reduced.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who had been pressing for cuts, hailed it as a "good deal for Britain".

"I think the British public can be proud that we have cut the seven-year credit card limit for the EU for the first time ever," Mr Cameron said.

The EU has never had a budget that was approved and signed off on by its auditors in all of its history. Never. If we are infected with amazing corruption, theirs is yet more amazing.

BTW, since when did the word “agree” become a non-prepositional verb? The way the article title ought to be written is “agree to”, not “agree” by itself.
