Reading suggestion #14: Referendum on EU matters in the UK in 2017?

David Cameron promised yesterday that Britain will hold a referendum on whether to stay in the EU in 2017. He delivered a speech in London, stating that he is willing to re-negotiate Britain’s EU membership terms if his Conservative party wins the next election, expected in 2015.

The video of his speech (37 minutes) can be seen in full here.
