“We’ve got some important work to do today and tomorrow, and it’s going to be hard. I’ll be battling for Britain. If we can get a good deal, I’ll take that deal, but I will not take a deal that doesn’t meet what we need,” Cameron told reporters on arrival at the summit.

“I think it’s much more important to get this right than to do anything in a rush, but with good will, with hard work we can get a better deal for Britain,” he continued.
