It appears that eurosceptic MPs had promised not to rock the boat in the run up to the next general election, though the wheels appear to be coming off. Hannan has resigned his position and the press is full of leaks from, mainly unnamed MPs, criticizing Cameron over his 'U turn' on a referendum. Whilst I think most people knew something like this would happen should Lisbon be ratified, he was after all deliberately vague about the consequences, Hague's admission that clawing back powers from Europe won't even be on the agenda for some time after they take power is a bombshell to the grass roots Conservative supporters. It's difficult to argue with Cameron's argument that Afghanistan and the economy have to take precedence, however this is hardly a vote winner. Wheeler, UKIPs main benefactor, reckons that they cost the Conservatives 30 seats at the last election. Add in public dissatisfaction with sitting MPs and their troughing, along with the anti-european sentiment and you have a recipe for disaster at the next general election. Is it possible that we could see UKIP able to finally bring serious pressure to bear? Or could it go further than that?
