The British prime minister can now claim to have secured an influential role, removing the risk of Brits being treated as “second-class citizens” opposed to the EU bloc, said Charles Grant, director of the Centre for European Reform think-tank.

Tory Brexiteers fear the word “community” leaves the door open for the group to evolve into a more structured organization, as happened with the forerunners to the EU. But a majority of countries prefer the term ‘community’, Grant said, because they feel it describes better the group’s aim of acting as a “family of shared values” opposed to “Russian imperialism.”
