Within weeks of a rigged IN vote there will be a stalking horse challenge against him

It is unthinkable that the "purdah" rules are to be relaxed for the EU referendum:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/eureferendum/11674174/Fifty-Conservative-MPs-to-challenge-David-Cameron-over-rigged-EU-referendum-rules.html

If the rules are relaxed and the IN side wins the accusation will be made that the vote was rigged.

The fall-out, particularly at the 2019 Euro elections, will be profound.

And on a personal level for David Cameron, the bitterness that will be engendered will make his premiership stink.  Possibly within weeks of a rigged IN vote there will be a stalking horse challenge against him.  Instead of a victory run, the rest of this parliament will be endless ducking of missiles made of ordure.

And as Tony Blair can advise him, there is no shaking off a party that thinks it has been betrayed.
