Van Rompuy: Britain's bid to renegotiate could damage bloc
British Prime Minister David Cameron's attempts to win back powers from the European Union could damage the bloc and its single market, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said on Thursday.


Cameron, trailing in opinion polls and under pressure from an anti-EU group within his Conservative party, wants to take advantage of the euro zone crisis to renegotiate Britain's relationship with the EU. Van Rompuy, whose council represents EU member states, told The Guardian that the bloc could fall apart if individual countries were allowed to pick and choose from its regulations. (Reuters)
