The European question is the grim reaper of British politics – dividing parties, debilitating governments and destroying careers.Prime Minister David Cameron's decision to hold a referendum – perhaps as early as June – on the United Kingdom's continued membership in the EU could bring down his government, destroy his political party and literally tear his country apart.Cameron is doing all he can to renegotiate the terms of membership in order to persuade voters to choose to remain in the EU.Were this to happen, the dismemberment of the U.K. would make Cameron's legacy the worst of any prime minister in British history.If Cameron loses both the EU and Scottish referendums, his successors will not be able to put the EU or the U.K. back together again.Cameron's call for a referendum, first issued when he was in opposition, was an attempt to appease both sides, allowing each to stick to their principles while promising to give voters the final say. The trouble began when he became prime minister and was forced to pick a side.Fortunately for Cameron, he has a lot going in his favor.
