Brexit: British PM tells Parliament UK can have ‘best of both worlds’ in EU

February 23, 2016

(CNN) British Prime Minister David Cameron made his pitch to remain in the European Union to parliamentarians Monday, saying the UK could “have the best of both worlds” if it voted to remain in the bloc.

Cameron has been urging Britons to vote to remain in the union in a June 23 referendum, after striking a deal with European leaders to give the UK “special status” within the bloc if it remains.

“Britain will be out of the parts of Europe that do not work for us — we will be permanently and legally protected from being a part of an ever-closer union,” he said.
