|Lord Howard, BREXIT bound.....|
David Cameron has been dealt a fresh blow as a former Tory leader said the EU renegotiation has "met with failure", reports Press Association.
Michael Howard, once a political mentor to the Prime Minister, says he believes Britain should vote to leave to "shake Europe's leaders out of their complacency".
Lord Howard said Britain "would be sorely missed" if it quit the EU and suggested that "there would be a significant chance that they would ask us to think again" if voters backed Brexit.
In an article for The Daily Telegraph, he wrote: "I had hoped that when the Prime Minister announced his intention to commence negotiations for a new relationship between the UK and the EU he might be able to achieve fundamental reform along these lines.
"When he spoke, at the outset of the negotiations, of the need for fundamental reform, I believe he may have had something of this kind in mind.
