EU deal gives UK special status, says PM

by  |  published on February 20, 2016

David Cameron says a deal struck with EU leaders will give the UK “special status” and he will campaign with his “heart and soul” to stay in the union.

The PM said the agreement, reached late on Friday after two days of talks in Brussels, would include a seven-year “emergency brake” on welfare payments.

He added the deal included changes to EU treaties and would be presented to his cabinet on Saturday at 10:00 GMT.

EU exit campaigners said the “hollow” deal offered only “very minor changes”.

The unanimous agreement reached at the EU summit was announced by European Council president Donald Tusk, who tweeted: “Deal. Unanimous support for new settlement for #UKinEU.”

    Worse for the common people
    More power for Cameron.

    I bet it was either give them special status or they were going to drop out of the union. And that would have sealed their fate.
