In 2010 Dave was so desperate to get into Downing St. he would have signed anything. He was elected leader by persuading Tory MPs he was Eurosceptic. He is a man without principle. a vacuous PR man and a self confessed Europhile like Clegg.
So where now? I cannot see the Tory backbenchers not kicking up. Most of them detest the LibDems, with good reason in my opinion and don't trust Dave. Many expect to lose their seat so they are not susceptible to whip's pressure. They have put down an amendment to the Queen's speech, very unusual but entirely within the rules. There have been rumoursall day that something was being cooked up and it is now reported by the BBC click on link to read.
It seems the Speaker who of course hates Dave will allow this amendment to be tabled. Former chancellor Lamont has come out virtually backing the Nigel Lawson line that we would be better off out of the EU. BoJo, Dave's likely successor is very equivocal and clearly preparing to challenge Dave if things go the right way for BoJo.
There is a clear right wing anti-EU vote which if not split would deliver a big majority. The only problem is no one trusts Cameron and Farage has stated he will not enter into any electoral pact with the Tories whilst Cameron is leader. That puts the ball in the Tories court. Their Europhiles, Howe, Heseltine, Clarke and Hurd knifed Mrs Thatcher in the back. Its time for the Tory Eurosceptics to show the same ruthlessness or leave the field clear for UKIP.
The slimey LibDems will vote against any attempt to give the electorate the EU referendum they want. We cannot have government dictated by a minority party with nutty policies on wind farms etc. Lets have an election now and end this fatuous state of affairs. No more coalitions please and there can be no meaningful renegotation with the EU so lets have a straight in out vote asap.
