The Daily Mail reports that Tory euroskeptics, rebuffed by their PM, are considering trying to form a Conservative-Labour alliance against further European integration (read loss of UK sovereignty):

Tory MPs are plotting to join forces with Labour Eurosceptics to try to force David Cameron to take a harder line on the EU.

The Prime Minister – who yesterday held talks in Downing Street with Europe’s self-styled ‘president’ Herman Van Rompuy – dismissed calls for an ‘in-out’ referendum on Britain’s membership.

But they hope to forge a euroskeptic majority:

Organisers hope the new group will create a Tory-Labour Commons majority in favour of redefining Britain’s EU membership and sideline the pro-EU Lib Dems.

If they could do that, they could bring down the Coalition Government and force a early General Election.  I would not hold my breath – I did not even know there were Labour euroskeptics!  But press on!  England STILL needs every man to do his duty!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
