Of course, his party is deeply divided over it and many of his backbenchers will certainly use their influence to force him to take a tougher line in the negotiations, making it harder for him to reach agreement with his EU partners. Nevertheless, there are four key areas in which Cameron wants reforms:

  1. An opt-out from the treaty aspiration of ever-closer union of the people of Europe.
  2. Safeguards for the City of London against eurozone caucusing.
  3. Less bureaucracy and regulation, particularly those that can bog down the smallest firms, and more focus on aiding competition.
  4. Leeway to restrict in-work benefits paid to workers from the rest of the EU.
