Cam woos Tory sceptics as he says: We don't need EU.

Byline: JASON BEATTIE Political Editor

BRITAIN could thrive outside the European Union, David Cameron will say. The PM will insist he is willing to recommend an exit in the in/out referendum if his demands on a new relationship with the EU are not met. In an olive branch to Tory eurosceptics, Cameron will say Britain would not be cut adrift if it leaves.

He will set out the choices tomorrow as he tables renegotia-tion demands in a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk.

The PM will say: "I am not saying for one moment that Britain couldn't survive outside the European Union. Of course we could. We are a great country." He will add: "Whether we could be successful outside it is not the question."

BRITAIN will stay signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights but Parliament will get a say after European Court rulings, leaked plans show.
