It looks as if the Tory Leader, David Cameron in his attempt to challenge Peter Mandelson and to become the next Prime Minister of this once Great Britain, has gone for the nuclear option of bringing the once Tory heavyweight, Kenneth (I adore the EU) Clarke, back to the Conservative front bench.
Reported on the Conservative Home web-site it stated that although the site's editors were opposed to the move, they would go along with the results of a vote taken on the site about bringing Ken Clarke back to the forefront, in which a majority voted in favour of bringing the Euro beast back. Reading the comments of members there were some very mixed opinions, there was also evidence that the Conservative Party is also still riddled with Europhiles in its ranks.
Many commented that this has ensured they will be voting UKIP in the European elections on June 4th this year. If David Cameron had wanted to give UKIP a real boost then he could not have done anything better for it than go for this option. He seems to think that any unhappiness in the Tory ranks over bringing one of the Euro fundamentalists who stabbed Margaret Thatcher in the back will be smoothed out by growing Conservative support in the polls.
The deal was stitched up between Cameron, Clarke and George Osbourne, William Hague was kept well and truly out of any decision making. Apparently, Clarke has pledged not to make an issue out of the Lisbon Treaty or membership of the euro. Whether this known Bilderburger will stick to the agreement will be another matter. The question still has to be asked - how is Clarke going to challenge Mandelson when both men work for the advancement of the EU and our eventual subjugation to it rather than working for their own political parties?
