"They are not going to give him anything significant"
The former British Chancellor of the Exchequer Nigel Lawson expects that Prime Minister David Cameron will not achieve anything of significance in his renegotiation of Britain's ties with the EU.“It is likely that the changes David Cameron secures will be inconsequential, of no significance at all," Lawson said in an interview with the BBC. „He is looking for more than that but what he will secure will be trivial ... they are not going to give him anything significant,“ said Lawson, who was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1983-89 under Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The cep also believes that Cameron will not be able to push through major changes in the EU. This would require a change oft he EU treaties. However, it is unlikely that a new EU treaty would be ratified in the 28 EU member states in time for Britain to hold its planned in/out referendum.
