"The talks are not likely to lead to agreement but it's conceivable they will," Stephen Tindale of the CER, says. "Either a freeze or a real terms cut would be an early sign of how much negotiating success Cameron can have in Europe."..."It's unlikely, particularly as they're not exactly enamoured of the UK government at the moment, that they'd agree to change the working time directive or allow the UK to opt out," Tindale says. ...Cameron's mention of the environment suggests he envisages a new dash for gas in the near future. "Whether there'll be attempt to roll back what the EU is doing on greenhouse gas emissions is going to be a pretty big issues politically," Tindale says.
