The Telegraph reports that ministers are told by David Cameron to abstain from key vote, while conservative backbenchers are becoming more unease at no mention of europe in the Queens speech.

Could we have a rebellion on our hands?

so who's the potential stalking horse:D
Some months ago, there was talk of an up and coming potential new leader of the Tories, a black guy by the name of Adam Afriyie. Last week he had a few choice words after a poor showing by the Tories in the English local elections and the rise of UKIP.
'It's time for Cameron to stop pussyfooting around': PM rival Adam Afriyie calls for two per cent tax on immigrants and mass deportation in incendiary manifesto.

I think they will. Next British GE, I see the Tory threat not as how many seats UKIP could win but how many seats that the Tories could lose to the rise of UKIP with a fragmented conservative vote. Incidentally I see the Brits overall as a bigger threat to EU compared to the Greeks,Cypriots or Spanish. The Tory party could very well tear its self apart in the coming years.

What UKIP don't realise is that its better for the UK to be in the EU undermining it rather than being an outsider and having no say over its future direction. A united European continent is a disaster for the US-aligned English isle.

However they (the Conservatives) obviously cant mention this realpolitik in public, hence the growing support for UKIP.

They're not the "same 3" - I post loads.

Europe is not "united".

Euroskeps are on the rise, those photos are a reminder to some reality deniers of that, also of the growing instability & resentment...

I'll post what I wish & you do likewise...

It's not as if my refraining from posting reminder photos will unite or stabilise the EU is it? :oops:

I hope Cameron is forced to have that referendum a week before the Scottish independence vote :evil:

The Brits are not part of the eurozone. I still maintain we are over the worst of the EZ sovereign debt crisis.
As I have said before a Greek exit if it happened could actually be possitive but as of now in an overall EU context it is the Brits
mumblng about referenda and exits.

The Tories seem obsessed with the EU. It rose to a peak during the hapless John Major's time and it stayed that way throughout the early noughties. Cameron put a band-aid over the festering wound to hide it from public view but it's starting to peel off again.

It would be a disaster for the Tories should Europe suddenly sink without trace into the sea. What would they talk about then?

I think you"ll find the issue is taken rather more seriously in the UK than you seem to think, some very serious people indeed are now saying that the UK would be better off out.

Europe stifles us and Nigel Lawson is right: it’s time to leave - Telegraph

The British people on the whole do not want to be part of a country called "Europe", they don't believe it's what they signed up for in the first place and increasingly they no longer believe it's in their best interests to continue as members of the EU. a perfectly reasonable viewpoint and pretty much the mainstream view nowadays.
