Cameron takes on eurosceptics after EU 'special status' deal

Prime Minister David Cameron will hold an emergency cabinet meeting as he embarks on the difficult process of selling the deal in Britain ahead of the referendum, expected on June 23British Prime Minister David Cameron on Saturday embarked on a daunting challenge to persuade ministers in his own cabinet and the country at large to vote for Britain to stay in the European Union. Cameron will hold a cabinet meeting — the first on a Saturday since the Falklands War in 1982 — and will announce the date for a membership referendum after striking a deal in Brussels that gives Britain special concessions. “The cabinet will this morning discuss the UK’s new special status in the EU — afterwards I’ll announce the planned referendum date,” Cameron tweeted following a gruelling two-day summit with EU leaders.
