Comment on the return of Ken Clarke

David Cameron, political palaeontology and digging-up the old dinosaur Ken Clarke

Barry Legg

Press Release: For Immediate Release
CAMERON RETREATS ON REFERENDUM

The apparent decision by David Cameron, the leader of the Conservative Party, to allow Kenneth Clarke to return to the Shadow Cabinet but to be able to continue to disagree with the leader’s policies on the European Union is unprecedented.

comment on the return of ken clarke barry leggBarry Legg, Co-Chairman of the Thatcherite Bruges Group, commented that;
“This effectively means the end of David Cameron’s promise to hold a referendum on the EU Constitution. The Liberal Democrat and Labour parties are opposed to such a referendum and it is now clear that Mr Cameron does not have the will to carry the necessary legislation through the House of Commons if the Conservative Party were elected to office. Mr Clarke and his supporters within the Conservative Party have been given carte blanch to oppose the policy.

“The so-called ‘big beast’ has trampled all over Mr Cameron as the price of his return to the Conservative front bench.”
