NotesNews: "David Cameron will deliver a "red-meat announcement" on Britain's future in the EU, which he believes will satisfy all but a hard core of Conservative MPs, when he makes his much-delayed keynote speech on Europe in the next few days. .... Advanced briefing of his speech, which he had been scheduled to give in Amsterdam on Friday but had to postpone because of events in Algeria, made clear that he would demand repatriation of some powers from Brussels to Westminster if he wins a majority at the next election. The new deal would then be put to the British people in a referendum...... Cameron's policy is not only splitting the Tory party but increasingly business opinion seems divided. ...
