Cameron’s demands

In light of David Cameron’s speech on the UK and its future in the EU, an interesting blog post has appeared on the Open Europe blog, “Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, David Cameron set out seven objectives – or eight if you read
between the lines – for a Conservative EU reform agenda ahead of that  potential 2017 EU referendum. Surprisingly, despite this being the most explicit  that David Cameron has been in setting out a ‘shopping list’ (an unfortunate
term), it has generated surprisingly little attention, in the UK and  abroad. To be fair, none of these objectives are completely new, one is  not strictly to do with the EU, while in the case of some of the others it would  be rather difficult to define success. Interestingly only the point about  removing the commitment to “ever closer union” would definitely require treaty change”.
