Cameron studying Conservative child abuse claim

LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister David Cameron is looking at an allegation by a paedophile victim who told the BBC that an unidentified Conservative Party figure had abused children in social care during the 1970s, the premier’s spokesman said on Monday.

Cameron backs referendum on new Britain-EU deal

BIRMINGHAM (Reuters) – A referendum on Britain’s ties with the European Union would be the best way of agreeing a fresh settlement with the 27-member bloc, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday, as pressure mounts within his party for a vote.

The Conservative Party’s restive “eurosceptic” right wing is clamoring to claw back powers from Brussels. Some want a simple vote on staying in the EU or leaving, fearing that the party could lose votes to the anti-Europe UK Independence Party at the 2015 election.
