ED MILIBAND will accuse the Prime Minister David Cameron of putting Britain’s national interest at stake by “sleepwalking to the EU exit door” in a speech to the CBI today.

The Labour party leader will say that Cameron wants to stay in the EU but has his hands tied by Eurosceptics in his cabinet.

He will argue that the UK must remain in the EU to make sure it voice is heard and to keep its place “in the negotiating room”.

But he will also say there are failures that should be addressed and that Britain should “build alliances” with other countries to bring about change.

This includes further reform of the EU budget so that more money is spent on infrastructure, energy and innovation.
