Some in the EU have a deeper fear. Charles Grant of the Centre for European Reform, a London-based think-tank, says officials in Berlin and Brussels fret that if Mr Cameron cannot secure his demands on benefits, he will choose to go for Brexit. Polls have recently been moving against staying in. The Danish government’s recent loss of a referendum on opting in to some EU justice and home-affairs laws shows how hard it is to win such votes.
