And if he [David Cameron] pushes his agenda too far, he will get short shrift at a summit in Brussels on December 18, says Camino Mortera-Martinez of the Centre for European Reform, a London-based thinktank.

..."Hostility to EU migration has become the most salient issue in British politics, despite evidence of its positive economic impact," said Mortera-Martinez."The European Commission is saying it will accept a calm discussion ... but I do not think it will be up for any dramatic changes of rules or any slap on the table saying 'if [the EU] doesn't accept our changes we will leave the European Union', which is what David Cameron seemed to imply," said Mortera-Martinez.
