Former British Defense Secretary Liam Fox has urged the government to consider leaving the European Union (EU), unless the body rebalances its relationship with London.

''Britain's destiny is not a debating issue for leaders on the continent,” Fox said, adding that Brussels exerts undue influence on UK government policies. It must be made in Britain.

Fox’s comments will likely add pressure on Prime Minister David Cameron who is expected to address parliament on last week’s EU summit.

Cameron has said he might be willing to consider a referendum on Britain’s EU membership, but advised “patience” on the subject.
