Today we hope to see the completion of the prime minister's renegotiation package. This would make Britain even stronger in Europe and is something the country should get behind. When we do we will know what 'In' looks like... We will still be in the dark, however, on what 'Out' looks like.

Oliver Norgrove

There is nothing new in saying that if the Eurozone is to succeed its members will have to surrender more financial independence. Everyone knows that.
