UK takes hard line on EU reform as Cameron starts European tour| Reuters

LONDON/PARIS Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain's relationship with the European Union was "not good enough" after his foreign minister warned the bloc had to change its founding treaties and give London a meaty reform deal to keep it as a member.
