European Union leaders try to stem the skeptic tide.

“Business as usual” is over, said UK prime minister David Cameron, after Euroskeptic parties claimed some 30% of seats in Europe’s parliament.

Leaders of the 28 member states meet in Brussels to discuss their response, and to start choosing the next European Commission president.

The British leader who has been calling on the EU to drastically reform its ways and institutions to give member nations more space to run their own affairs will be a key figure at Tuesday’s summit.

Voters “want change and as far as I am concerned that message is completely received and understood,” Cameron said.
