– George Osborne
There is a simple choice for Europe - reform or decline.
Our determination is clear, to deliver the reform and then let the people decide, and that's exactly what we will do.
The Chancellor has issued a warning on the need for the European Union to reform or face economic decline in a speech. He reiterated the Conservatives' vow to renegotiate the terms of Britain's membership, declaring: "We can't go on like this."
