Talks were going down to the wire on Cameron's four challenging demands – welfare restrictions to help curb immigration, safeguards for non-euro Britain, increasing EU competitiveness and an opt-out from closer EU integration.Cameron, under pressure from eurosceptics in his centre-right Conservative Party and a hostile right-wing press, says he will back a 'Yes' vote in a referendum expected this June if he can cut a deal in Brussels.Failing that, he has said all options are open, refusing to rule out the possibility that Britain could become the first country to leave the EU in its more than 60-year history.Britons voted overwhelmingly in favor of staying in the EU in a 1975 referendum, just two years after joining, when the then Labour government said the country would miss out on Europe's growing prosperity if it left.That is the same case made now – but with Britain more prosperous and growing faster than most of its EU peers, euroskeptics say 'Brexit' should hold no fears.
