    If we ca n’t get the commitments we need from our European partners on things like Britain being outside the commitment to ever-closer union, if we ca n’t get these things then as the prime minister has said, we rule nothing out, that’s why the package will have to be a robust, substantial and irreversible package of change with proper binding legal force. Because if we try to put to the British people a package which is anything less, we will get a raspberry from them.
