EU's Schulz slams new UK cabinet

Schulz said the cabinet, like the one run by May’s predecessor David Cameron, is based on solving internal splits in the ruling centre-right Conservative Party rather than promoting the national interest. Schulz was alluding to Cameron’s decision to call the June 23 referendum on Britain’s EU membership — in which people voted to leave — in order to settle a dispute with the eurosceptic wing of party.
