Cameron seeking conservative parties' support

As part of his Europe tour British Prime Minister David Cameron met on Thursday with the conservative Bavarian CSU party - which together with the CDU forms the ruling alliance in Berlin - to discuss his plans for EU reform. The liberal daily Hospodářské noviny is not surprised by this development. "Cameron is hearing from all sides in Europe how glad they are that the British are in the EU. But none of the mainstream politicians on the continent likes the sound of Cameron's conditions for the UK staying in the EU. So now he is beginning to attack the Brussels fortress from the conservative side. This is why he made his way through the snow to the meeting with the Bavarian CSU. And what was the next destination on his conservative tour? Budapest, no less, where he conferred with Viktor Orbán."
