Cameron is "battling for Britain;" won't accept bad deal

British Prime Minister David Cameron promises to fight for a good reform deal for his country, insisting that he won't accept a bad compromise on his country's relationship with the European Union.

"I will be battling for Britain. If we can get a good deal, I will take that deal, but I will not take a deal that doesn't meet what we need," Cameron says as he arrives for a Brussels summit with his 27 EU counterparts.

"We have got some important work to do today and tomorrow and it is going to be hard," he adds.

"I think it is much more important to get this right than to do anything in a rush, but with good will, with hard work, we can get a better deal for Britain," the premier says.
