It has been announced tonight that David Cameron is to fulfill a long term pledge and pull the Conservative Party out of the European People’s party (EPP) which backs closer economic integration and opposes a UK referendum on the Lisbon treaty. Instead the Conservatives and other likeminded politicians will form a new grouping of MEP’s after the European Elections in June. The new group, expected to be called the European Conservatives, is likely to include representatives from other European countries including the Czech Republic and Poland. I am delighted by this announcement and pleased to see some good old fashioned Conservative Euro-scepticism back on the board. Although I must add one final note; I will be looking on with interest to see how the big beast aka Europhile Ken Clarke reacts to this announcement…
