Election Reflections from Councillor Keith Barrow, Re-elected Leader of Shropshire Council
COMMENT – The Conservative Party could pull Britain out of Europe. Policy is set by the leader. IDS stopped the Hague Euro policy (2001: Save the Pound for one Parliament), a stance which has never been changed since. Cameron OTOH has signed us into Europe, while lying through his teeth on every occasion. We are now very vulnerable.
Much as we hate the notion, we have to try again, whenever we get an opportunity.
Farage has said he’ll cooperate with a new Conservative leader, if Cameron goes. He knows the score. He can’t actually deliver the programme, but he can engineer the circumstances whereby the Conservatives are forced to elect a eurosceptic leader. That’s what UKIP strategy should be, and as far as one can tell, is.
Wise Conservatives like Keith barrow can see the need to change the leader. It should be done well before the next election, maybe after the coming European elections could see a UKIP outright win.
