Britain is not going to leave the EU. The British establishment knows it would be a shot in its own foot. So a Brexit was never seriously considered during the most recent "negotiations". They were about Britain demanding privileges (once again) which will be guaranteed by the EU and, in return, the British government will advise the British people to vote for the stay. Such "renegotiations" have been happening ever since the 1975 referendum. The rants against the evil EU machine (remember Margaret "I want my money back" Thatcher) are the only reason the Tories still exist on the British political landscape. Cameron is facing a serious problem with the nationalist UKIP which keeps attracting many Tory voters, so he has to be the Eurosceptic Turbo-Brit for a while.
