Cameron to propose a vote on EU relationship
LONDON (AP) -- Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to offer British citizens a vote on leaving the European Union if his party wins the next election, a move which could trigger alarm among fellow member states.
Cameron will be making his long-awaited speech on the United Kingdom's future relationship with Europe today. It was postponed last week due to the hostage crisis in Algeria.
He will acknowledge that public disillusionment with the EU is "at an all-time high," using his speech in central London to say that the terms of Britain's membership in the bloc should be revised and the country's citizens should have a say.
The announcement comes after months of build-up around the speech.
