British Prime Minister David Cameron on Saturday embarked on a daunting challenge to persuade ministers in his own cabinet and the country at large to vote for Britain to stay in the European Union. Cameron will hold a cabinet meeting — the first on a Saturday since the Falklands War in 1982 — and will announce the date for a membership referendum after striking a deal in Brussels that gives Britain special concessions. "The cabinet will this morning discuss the UK's new special status in the EU — afterwards I'll announce the planned referendum date," Cameron tweeted following a gruelling two-day summit with EU leaders.
