I'm sceptical as to whether there's enough in this deal to secure an 'in' vote. This idea of 'ever closer union' is very wishy washy and will surely be pounced upon by the out campaign. The early signs are that there will be no real reversal of EU encroachment onto British sovereignty - or whatever way you want to put it - aside from concessions on future immigrants, which might anger some people.

The whole thing is bollix, little Englanders harkening back to Empire. The "benefits", is children's allowances which is about 30m, or less than 50p per person. You'd pay that for a decade for the cost of running the referendum.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

The whole referendum is a sham. Asking people who literally know feck all about the EU to vote and decide whether the country remains in the EU is ludicrous in the extreme. I heard some comedian comment that it's like a bomb disposal expert ringing him and asking which wire to cut.

Cameron, though, knows Britain are highly unlikely to vote to leave, when push comes to shove (see the Scottish vote) fear of losing money and jobs trumps national jingoism and this is why he included the promise of the vote in his manifesto. A win in this referendum will be written into history books as the time Cameron went to Europe and kicked ass. A carefully scripted spin that will see him move on at the end of his term as a PM who achieved great things. This will be his finest hour. In reality he'll have achieved jack all and risked a European exit to achieve it.
That was never a square ball!!

You could reassign the  "community workers" to help out the farmers?
