Imagine a couple with a long history, normal ups and downs, growing older together, very few secrets left (if at all!). Then, after having a discussion about what next school the kids need, or whether or not to refinance the mortgage, or what might be a solution for the parents, one of the partners says “we’ll see how it goes, but I’m going to make a final decision in 5 years on whether to stay with you!”
The other(-s) will say “No more alcohol for you! Drink the Cool-Aid, but not with me around!” If Mr. Cameron wants to change things he should embrace his “Brussels opponents”, not give them fair warning to stay away! Euro sceptics in his party are like the Tea Party in the GOP, “a stun-granate with a loud bang, but no real follow-up”. Corrall them by concentrating on growth, employment, development.

On the same basis the Eurozone and all its members would be in a similar fantasy land bsed on fears for the survival of the zone and the willingness of the north to pay for the south and the south to accept the terms of the north.

The chances of the EU being the same as it is now in 5 years time is small and this would by the same token allegedly make it a place to avoid.
