Britain’s Cameron looks to rally support at EU summit

Standard

British Prime Minister David Cameron will launch an assault against “business as usual” at a summit in Brussels on Tuesday, calling on fellow EU leaders to set simpler priorities that meet the concerns of frustrated voters.After resounding victories for the far-right in Britain, France and Denmark, and a strong performance by populist or Eurosceptic groups in many other EU countries in European elections, Cameron is under pressure to shore up his position at home and deliver on long-promised changes in Europe.In a series of phone calls in recent days, he has spoken to six EU leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. He made further calls on Tuesday, one of them to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.”Fellow leaders have agreed that it is an important moment for the European Council to set out its views on the future of the EU and provide clear direction of what is expected from the next European Commission,” Cameron’s spokesman said.
