Curbing immigration from within the European Union, defying its human rights tribunal and bringing more powers back to Britain would be top priorities for a re-elected government, Prime Minister David Cameron said Wednesday.

Speaking to the Conservative party faithful at their last gathering before the general election in May, Cameron said cutting back immigration from the EU would be “at the very heart of my renegotiation strategy for Europe.”

“Britain: I know you want this sorted, so I will go to Brussels, I will not take no for an answer and when it comes to free movement I will get what Britain needs,” Cameron said.

He reiterated his promise of an in/out referendum if his Conservatives win in May, and appealed to voters to judge him on his record in EU meetings.

“I’m the first prime minister to veto a treaty, the first prime minister to cut the European budget and, yes, I pulled us out of those European bailout schemes, too.

Reaffirming his commitment to a British Bill of Rights to replace the Human Rights Act, Cameron blasted the European Court of Human Rights for “wrong”decisions.”

“Let me put it very clearly: We do not require instruction from judges in Strasbourg on this issue,” he said.
