David Cameron to reinforce importance of Britain's EU membership
Nicholas WattDavid Cameron will risk provoking the Tory eurosceptic right on Monday when he joins forces with the arch pro-European Kenneth Clarke to argue that British membership of the EU remains a vital national interest.
In a speech explaining Britain's standing in the world a week before he hosts the G8 summit in Northern Ireland, the prime minister will say that membership of the EU is crucial in guaranteeing Britain a seat at the "top table".
Cameron's staunch defence of Britain's EU membership, a month after Michael Gove and Philip Hammond said they would vote to leave now, will be reinforced by Clarke who will warn that Britain will be "reduced to watching from the sidelines" if it leaves the EU.
