After two days of intense negotiations, United Kingdom and the rest of European Union countries reached an agreement on several issues related to the country´s future. The main details of new agreement were: a proposed emergency brake on EU migrants claiming in work benefits, restrictions on child benefit for EU migrants will kick in at a reduced rate, Britain has a specific opt out from the EU´s historic commitment to forge an ever closer union of the peoples of Europe, United Kingdom will never join Euro zone and british taxpayers also never be made to bail out other EU members.
David Cameron told journalists in Brussels that “deal give the UK special status in the European Union”. Despite this unanimous agreement, prime-minister will face some political hostility during cabinet meeting on Saturday, due to some eurosceptical members, such as Michael Gove, Boris Johnson and Chris Grayling. Cameron wasn´t surprise of Gove participation for Brexit.
Professor of London School of Economics, Tim Oliver, told “The Democrat”, that “Cameron is deluded if he believes that deal and vote can settle the European issue for a generation”, because “a vote to remain or leave will not settle the issue of Europe in British politics”. For LSE Professor, prime-minister hopes referendum will put an end on discussion about Europe.
Meanwhile, in London, many members from Conservative Party, UKIP, Labour, trade unions and people from british society participated in a conference to discuss Brexit. The campaign for the United Kingdom leave European Union put together David Davis, Nigel Farage, Kate Hoey and John Foreman.
The campaign for European Union referendum on 23 of June has started in United Kingdom. Tim Oliver think referendum can “be a step forward in better managing the relationship and debate, but it is only a single step” and recommend “further steps such as comprehensive and longer-term changes” to bring stability in UK-EU relations.
