Summary/Abstract: The lack of clarity about the British wish list for EU reform has long obfuscated the discussion not only about the potential Brexit ahead of the 7 May parliamentary election, but also about the plausibility of the UK’s demands regarding the Union. This strategic file fleshes out concrete Westminster postulates to Brussels and assesses their feasibility in light of the challenges facing the EU today. The evidence reveals that, while some of the claims are actually against the UK’s own interests, others are undertaken in practice by EU institutions.
