I will stay up until 4:00 AM to veto EU treaties, vows Cameron

In what could be his final post-summit press conference, British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted that some EU leaders would “breathe a sigh of relief” if he loses May’s national elections.
Asked by EurActiv if there was anything he would miss about Brussels, and if other EU leaders would miss him, Cameron said the working hours of the summit needed improvement. It would make sense to start summits in the morning rather than afternoon to avoid working until 4:00 AM, he said.
“But if it’s four o’clock in the morning you have to work to, to get the budget cut, I am here and I am doing it. If it’s four o’clock in the morning that you need to be here to veto a treaty that is not in Britain’s interest, I am here and I do it,” he said.
