London, Dec 18 (IANS) Prime Minister David Cameron has admitted for the first time that he can imagine Britain quitting the European Union (EU), The Sun reported.
He talked about the prospect of Britain pulling out of the EU after MPs grilled him about last week's Brussels summit.
Asked if he could envisage Britain leaving the EU, Cameron said "all futures for Britain" were "imaginable". "We are in charge of our own destiny, we can make our own choices."
Cameron, however, stressed withdrawal was not his "preference". He wanted Britain to stay in the EU and to renegotiate relations with the EU -- based in Belgium -- to seize back key powers.
The British prime minister said he would make a long-awaited speech in January, spelling out his EU vision.
