If there was any silver lining to the postponement of the speech, then it was the fact that circumstances meant he had to deliver it in London. It's about time that Conservative prime ministers (Churchill, Thatcher) stopped addressing foreign audiences about Britain's role in Europe and started delivering a few home truths to their British fellow citizens.
The very fact that we are talking about the possibility of Britain leaving the European Union is Ukip's biggest victory to date.
At last, David Cameron has finally delivered it. Despite the odds being stacked against him, today the prime minister gave his highly-anticipated speech on the future of the UK's relationship with Europe at the London HQ of US information business, Bloomberg.
Even before Prime Minister David Cameron's speech on Europe this Wednesday, we know that it will be disappointing.
For the first time in the current parliament, more people would vote for Britain to stay in the European Union than to leave.
There are two groups in the debate at the moment, both of which have no time for the other side and don't seem too bothered about whether they are basing their arguments on fact or fiction.
The young generation sees Britain's future in the EU. This should give pro-Europeans a valuable new starting point to base a new and better strategy on. It is about time for pro-Europeans to start the fightback.
Attempting to repatriate competences from the EU may well play well in parts of the notoriously eurosceptic media and in parts of the Conservative Party but I would question whether it is truly in the British and European long-term interest.
One of the more depressing aspects of the debate about the UK's membership of the EU is the fact that very people actually seem to know what the EU is.
After a long-awaited speech on Europe, it will not be long before we know where the Conservative's truly stand on the UK's position in the EU. However, with talks likely to go on until 2015, it seems that we may be waiting for some time before an official agreement is made.
After ten years of non-smoking policy in New York the bars have more visitors now, because the vast majority turned out to prefer a healthier environment.
Breathing polluted air has become second only to smoking in the health damage it causes... A recent government scientific report revealed that UK air pollution causes 29,000 deaths and contributes to over 200,000 premature deaths per year.
Government initiatives launched to much fanfare, did little to benefit small businesses. The banks ignored the cries of all around them to do what they are supposed to do, lend, preferring to stick their fingers tightly in their ears and warble "la la la" instead.
Were Cameron to commit to a referendum he would unleash years of uncertainty about Britain’s future place in the world. And that could undermine the very reassurance, and reputation for moderation, that will be central to the Tories’ prospects of victory in 2015.
As a macroeconomist I foresee a continuation of the economic downturn and perhaps even destruction of the eurozone over the coming years.
We hear less of vampires these days. The new creature dominating the scene is the zombie. The banking crisis has left economies that are "zombified", living dead, only kept "alive" by the injection of the life-blood of credit by central banks.
