DAVID CAMERON has set out the goals for the renegotiation of Britain´s EU membership and has called the EU referendum the biggest decision of ‘our lifetimes’.
The Prime Minister described the reforms and the talks with partners in the EU as ‘mission possible’, talks which the Out campaigners labelled as a ‘gimmick’.
The goals outlined by Cameron are to protect the single market in the UK and other non-euro nations and to increase competitiveness with the introduction of a target to minimise the ‘burden’ of red tape.
The final two of the four objectives are to exempt the UK from ‘ever-closer union’ and to control EU migrants´ accessibility to such in-work benefits as tax credits.
Regarding the immigration situation, Cameron said that the UK needs “to secure arrangements that deliver on objectives set out in the Conservative manifesto to control migration from the European Union.”
He went on to say that if Britain voted to leave the EU he would not move for a second referendum.
“You the British people will decide. At that moment you will hold this country’s destiny in your hands. This is a huge decision for our country – perhaps the biggest we will make in our lifetimes. And it will be a final decision.”
