After months of touring European capitals and several long days holed up in Downing Street, David Cameron, the UK prime minister, can finally reveal the fruits of his labour. Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, has published a draft plan on renegotiating the UK’s place in the EU. This much-anticipated document, which makes it more likely that the UK referendum on EU membership will go ahead in June, delivers for Cameron on a number of negotiating points, including competitiveness, cutting red tape, protecting non-eurozone members from economic stresses, and on the UK’s stance regarding further integration. The plan offers precious little detail on the most contentious issue at hand – restricting benefits for EU migrants. That said, the fact that the EU has agreed that the UK could at least potentially apply an “emergency brake” on these payments is a major breakthrough.
