Britain Pledges Referendum on European Union

British Prime Minister David Cameron said it is "time for the British people to have their say" amid growing public discontent about the power of the European Union., the Daily Telegraph reports.

Cameron pledged an in-out referendum in the first half of the next parliament: "It is time to settle this European question in British politics. I say to the British people: this will be your decision."

New York Times: "The speech was a defining moment in Mr. Cameron's political career, reflecting a belief that by wresting some powers back from the E.U., he can win the support of a grudging British public which has long been ambivalent -- or actively hostile -- toward the idea of European integration."
