Cameron's Euro concerns (2)
So, another possibility looms.
He could advise his new boss not to break his promise (perish the thought) but to meet it very very slowly. He would announce that the Tory party would leave the EPP and form a new group... in 2009. This would allow dissenting MEPs to say they'd met their promises too. David Cameron would have a row with some Eurosceptics but when you're trying to re-position your party that might be bad thing. And it might be better than a row with Merkel and many of his own MEPs.
Now he wouldn't do that... would he?
