Cameron: EU pledge 'makes no sense whatsoever'

David Cameron has attacked Ed Miliband's EU referendum pledge, saying it makes "no sense whatsoever".

The Prime Minister told reporters on a flight to Israel: "It is not a proposal for an in/out referendum. It is a policy clearly designed by a committee who obviously couldn't agree what to do and have come up with a policy that makes no sense whatsoever."

"It is the classic Labour 'we know best' approach to politics."
