Why has there been the rush?

Why has there been such an untimely rush for David Cameron to have insisted on some sort of verdict from the 28 Prime/Foreign EU Ministers yesterday?  Until three months ago, Britain’s referendum was going to be held in the Autumn of 2017.  It’s now going to be June this year.

The answer is that Cameron wants to retire.  He’s argued to himself — quite rightly — that the longer we wait for a referendum the more likely it will be that it will turn against prolonging membership of the EU.  The sooner it’s held, the more likely that Cameron can retire with a success behind him.
