British PM to warn of EU exit if reform demands not heard
Nov 8, London: British Prime Minister David Cameron is to warn European leaders he will "think again" about the UK staying in the EU if his demands for reform are "met with a deaf ear", local news reported.
Cameron will deliver his warning on Tuesday to coincide with a letter to the European Council president setting out the changes he wants for the UK.
The letter to Donald Tusk will mark the start of the UK's formal re-negotiation of its EU membership. UKIP said they did not believe Mr Cameron would ever campaign to leave.
The Conservatives have promised an in-out referendum on the EU by 2017.
In a speech on Tuesday, Cameron will say: "If we can't reach such an agreement [on reforms], and if Britain's concerns were to be met with a deaf ear, which I do not believe will happen, then we will have to think again about whether this European Union is right for us.
