Former government minister and EU trade commissioner, Peter Mandelson, poses for a photograph during a Reuters interview in London February 22, 2013. Prime Minister David Cameron risks wrecking Britain's financial centre with his bid to wrest back powers from the European Union ahead of a vote on whether to leave, one of the UK's most influential Europhiles says. Mandelson, once one of Britain's most powerful men, told Reuters Cameron was imperilling the country's future by promising to claw back powers from the EU and to hold an in-out membership referendum by the end of 2017.
